    • Within the Apogee Control 2 software.
    • From your DAW.
  • All three workflows fully functional in the ACFX plugin wrapper: Print, Monitor and DualPath Link

With Symphony Desktop, the Apogee Control Software and the Apogee Channel FX plug-in, users can set up a variety of workflows that offer low-latency recording, maximum CPU efficiency, easy collaboration and the option to print or monitor plug-ins in your projects. You can use Apogee plugins with or without Symphony Desktop connected to your computer.

Apogee’s hybrid DSP workflow approach addresses the specific challenge of low-latency recording in a way that does not impose restrictions. The DSP plug-ins running on the Symphony Desktop are only engaged to provide near-zero latency monitoring on the tracks currently being recorded. After recording the tracks, seamless switching to native plugins running on the computer in your DAW allows you to scale your session to the huge track counts that are typical in modern music production.
