BEWARE: do not install Apogee Symphony driver v1.3!
I used to have a perfectly tuned, flawless Symphony rig. After installing the new software, my system always boots up at 48Khz.
The only way to use it at 44.1 is to open audio/midi configuration, switch the sample rate to a different value (it shows 44.1!!) then back to 44.1.
After a lot of cracks and pops, system works regularly at 44.1.
Restarting the computer and/or the interfaces, the problem comes back.
It's clearly a bug of the new driver, so I strongly suggest all the Symphony users to NOT INSTALL v1.3 until problems will be ironed out.
There is NO WAY to downgrade the software (Apogee pulled it from the website)
