Apogee Electronics has released a new video aimed to inspire music lovers to create, listen and share their music with the highest possible quality. The first chapter of a two part video series tells the story of a fiercely independent third generation songwriter, performer and producer, Harrison Kipner.
Harry’s grandfather Nat Kipner and father Steve both set the bar intimidatingly high for success by creating hit songs with artists such as Johnny Mathis and Deniece Williams, Bee Gees, Olivia Newton John, Chicago, Christina Aguilera, Joe Cocker, Cher, Natasha Bedingfield, and The Script. The video shows a typical day at Harry’s music making hide-away in Venice, California and offers a glimpse into the world of a young artist.
After being around music making at such a high level all of his life, Harry understands the role quality plays in both craft and tools. Harry records with an Apogee Quartet audio interface and when he is simply listening to music or wants to share work-in-progress with his dad, he brings Apogee Groove. “When I play something to him, I need it to sound good, so I bring the Groove.” Harry remarks. “I just plug it into a laptop and it feels and sounds like it was in the studio. You can’t fake goosebumps… that’s the only way you can tell something is right.”
Apogee has been at the forefront of the digital audio revolution since 1985 when the company was founded in Santa Monica, California. Apogee’s technology was used to upgrade the first digital recording machines, significantly improving sound quality and leading to the adoption of digital as a replacement for analog tape. Throughout the years, the company has continued to lead the audio industry with innovative products that have revolutionized the way people create and listen to music – whether on a desktop, laptop or mobile device. In an age where it has never been easier to record, listen or share music, the company has tirelessly dedicated themselves to creating products that offer exceptional sound quality and ease of use above all other features.
