Apogee, makers of the popular Apogee Jam guitar interface, have a series of new audio interfaces that support iOS and Mac only.
Apogee ONE is a slim rectangle that packs a built-in mic, a 1/8" stereo output, and connects to your iOS device via a 30-pin connector. With an additional breakout box you can record 2 inputs from XLR or 1/4" instrument cable. Available now for $349, this is trying to position itself as "entry-level premium" without MIDI. Their marketing makes some seriously silly claims like:
First studio quality audio interface and microphone for iPad
It also claims to supports Lightning connectors...
But that has a little asterisk, which is the corporate equivalent of crossing your fingers when you lie. The truth below there states:
*Apple Lightning to 30-pin adapter sold separately
So no, the Apogee ONE does not support Lightning connectors.
The Apogee Quarter with iOS support will also be coming in February for $1,295.00, featured 4 analog inputs and 6 outputs, plus 2 digital inputs and a MIDI-USB connection.
Apogee have also announced their upcoming Maestro app, for controlling all 3 of these interfaces from your iOS device.
