APOGEE ONE - USB microphone and music interface

這個母親節, 老公送了我最需要的一樣東西, 實在很感謝 (可能是我一直跟他要吧....)
因為每周都要錄製廣播節目, 必須帶著我們家小公主舟車勞頓的去到搞大音樂錄音室
錄音時, 還必須把老公小孩趕出去, 請他們出去過個半個小時才能回來.. 實在歹勢
小孩就這樣被我車來車去, 車程好比台北中壢.... 實在不是長久之計

很想錄音可以直接在家裡完成, 但所需要的機器又在要買另外一套....
平常直接插入電腦的大部分是動圈式麥克風(Dynamic Microphone)
但這些雜音實在太大, 就算買個接近一萬元的動圈式麥克風, 還是沒有我要的效果...

因為一定要condenser mic (電容式麥克風), 才能有高品質的錄音
但是這樣的麥克風另外需要幻象電源(Phantom Power)來供電,
所以如果要在家裡錄音, 就要買condenser mic (電容式麥克風),
再另外加購提供幻象電源的Audio Interface...例如: M-Box

聽了香港音樂人Victor 的大力推薦... APOGEE 的 ONE
就是一支有 built in MIC 的 Audio Interface..
還是插USB的...更是方便..... 不需要中間再經過一個Mixer or M-box
而且只有以 iPhone 在大一滴滴而已耶.... 實在是太讚了
只要帶著我的MACBOOK, 世界各地都能露出高品質節目...太高興了

要感謝Victor介紹我們這個好東西, 也感謝老公掏腰包送我
以後在家裡就可以舒適的錄音, 錄音時間也可以自己掌控喔!!

那天終於在家裡用APOGEE ONE 錄製了節目
效果果然驚人, 但如果不是有電腦散熱發出的聲音
一切可說是接近完美, 比去老公錄音室錄得還要清楚

 APOGEE ONE - USB microphone and music interfaceapogee_one.jpg


ONE is a pocket-sized USB microphone and music interface featuring the award winning sound quality that made Apogee Electronics famous. Designed to work easily with Apple's GarageBand, Logic, Final Cut, or any Core Audio compliant application, ONE lets you create professional recordings anywhere.
With ONE, you can record a single channel of audio using the specially tuned enclosure microphone, an instrument input for guitar, bass, or keyboard, or a world-class microphone preamp input. Listening with ONE is an entirely new experience as well. Hear your recordings and your iTunes library with incredible dimension and clarity through ONE's studio-quality stereo output.

It's an Apogee: Legendary Sound Quality at an Incredible Price

If you've been in a commercial recording studio, you've probably seen Apogee gear. If you haven't, you've heard it. Apogee products are preferred by recording pros around the world and have set the industry standard in professional recording for over two decades. ONE makes the legendary quality of Apogee available in a portable form factor and at the lowest price ever for a premium computer recording interface.

Take ONE Anywhere

ONE is powered by a USB connection to your Mac and offers 24 bit audio at sample rates of 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz for pristine sound quality. With a footprint slightly larger than an iPhone, ONE's compact size is travel friendly, allowing you to record and perform professionally any place your music takes you.

It's a Microphone: Tuned Aperture Microphone™ Technology

Unlike any interface in its class, ONE features an internal reference condenser microphone that has been fine-tuned by professional recording engineers to create Apogee's Tuned Aperture Microphone™ technology. ONE with its tuned aperture microphone and fitted with the optional custom mic mount is the ultimate portable recording solution for quickly capturing musical ideas, recording high quality demos, rehearsals, podcasts, lectures, interviews, voice-overs and more.

Choose your Mic: World-Class Mic Pre input
For those who prefer the sound of their favorite microphone, ONE features a worldclass microphone preamp with phantom power and a gain range of +10 to 63 dB. Based on the award winning mic preamps in Apogee's Ensemble and Duet, ONE's preamp is digitally controlled by the encoder knob. Level can also be set from within Apogee's Maestro, or your Mac's Sound and Audio MIDI Setup control panels.

Guitar, Bass and Keyboards: Instrument Input


Plug-in and play is made easy with ONE's instrument input. Perfect for guitar, bass, and keyboard, ONE's instrument input has extremely low noise and a transparent signal path making it the ideal solution for recording or performing live with your Mac.

Headphones or Speakers: Studio Quality Stereo Output

Hear your recordings in their truest form and rediscover your iTunes library with ONE's studio quality stereo output. Controlled by the encoder knob, the output of ONE is supplied by the 1/8" jack on the front allowing connection to either headphones or powered speakers.

ONE Touch Control: The multifunction encoder knob

All of ONE's features are selectable and adjustable with just a click and a turn. ONE's single encoder knob provides direct access to the tuned enclosure microphone, external microphone, instrument and output functions for input level and volume adjustment.

Connect easily: Instrument and microphone breakout cable    

ONE uses an instrument and microphone breakout cable, designed to minimize its footprint in your creative space and maximize ease of use and aesthetic appeal. The breakout cable provides clearly labeled high-quality connections for an instrument or microphone, as well as a natural strain relief between ONE and any connected items.

Making music on your Mac

Like Apogee's Duet and Ensemble, ONE is incredibly easy to use with Apple's GarageBand, Logic and Final Cut software. This makes getting started easy and adjusting ONE's levels and settings simple. The combination of ONE, Mac hardware and Apple's music creation software offers the most powerful and simple audio workstation available. Never has professional audio been so easy and affordable.
