At the 2018 Winter NAMM Show, Apogee previewed their new plugin software, DualPath FX Rack, exclusively designed for Ensemble & Element interfaces. In a recent update on their website, they have now announced further progress to their plugins, which they are now calling Apogee FX Rack. 

"We’re making great progress on the first 5 plugins for Ensemble and Element Series interfaces but we need a little more time. Although we are closer to a release, we want to ensure the sound quality along with the experience of using our first plugins is amazing."

And our models of vintage EQ and compressor hardware are turning out to be among the best we have ever heard. We’re working on light and dark themes too."
