Santa Monica, CA (January 11, 2017)—Apogee Electronics has announced the availability of a new software update for their Element Control App for Mac and iOS, designed specifically for its Element Thunderbolt audio interfaces. The software update offers Element users a new Talkback feature using any Mac’s built-in microphone, or any Core Audio input device (such as Apogee’s MiC), to communicate with the artist via headphones or IEMs.

The new software update also provides compatibility between all Element audio interfaces and the Apogee Control hardware remote accessory. With Apogee Control, users gain lightning access to input and output levels using the large Symphony-inspired Control knob and three control knob focus buttons.
