The purpose of an audio interface is to connect digital production tools to analog equipment like instruments and speakers - so doesn't it make sense to get some of those digital tools along with your new interface? Of course it does, and these Apogee Waves bundles are a great way to do it. By offering a suite of Waves plugins together with three of their most popular interfaces, Apogee has you covered whether you're just starting out with your first hobby studio or you're a professional sound editor looking to expand your hardware and software libraries together at once. Plus, the plugins will work with any common recording software, so you'll be good to go no matter what you prefer to use.
How do you like your music groups: duet, quartet or ensemble? Whatever the answer, maybe you'll like your interface the same way. The Apogee Duet for Mac and iOS with Waves Silver Bundle is the entry level for this section, with 2 inputs and 4 outputs, a full-color OLED display and a compact, simple design that makes the Duet really easy to use - and its small size makes it a solid choice for mobile setups. If you need more connectivity, consider sizing up to the Apogee Quartet for Mac and iOS with Waves Gold Bundle, which includes upgraded hardware as well as an even bigger selection of plug-ins. And for the largest systems, with rack space available for your interface, there's the Apogee Ensemble Thunderbolt 2 Audio Interface with Waves Gold Bundle.
Apogee has a well-deserved reputation for the build quality and performance of its audio interfaces, and the same high standard goes for their Waves plugins too. So if you're looking for the best of both worlds, you can't go wrong with Apogee Waves bundles - and the fact that you'll save yourself some scratch not having to buy software plugins and interface hardware separately is sort of like the icing on the cake.
