What extra do i need to achieve this?

Hi,

I have an apogee 2x6 convertor. What piece gear do i need to connect (and play together) all my instruments (moog, nord,...) like this guy does in underneath video?

Thanks

The person in that video is clearly using a mixing console.

Since you only have 2 inputs on your interface, you would either need to add something like a mixing console, or expand your inputs by using the optical in and adding more A/D.

What exact model do you have? The Symphony I or II with the 2x6 card? Or the Apollo X6? Or something else?

If you only have 2 inputs, then as mentioned, you'd need to connect all your synths to an external mixer, and send the two mixer outputs to your two interface inputs.

Or add another converter card (if symphony) to add more ins.

Or add a standalone converter unit connected over optical ADAT cables. Like an Audient ASP800, or RME ADI-8 series, or Apogee Rosetta or Apogee AD16X, or Behringer ADA8200, or something like that. Some have pre's built-in, other's dont.

Its the symphony I.

What kind of mixer is neutral and not too expensive to achieve this?

Look into Soundcraft.

Ok. So what would you buy when your budget is 400euro...?

Any of the Presonus Studio Live mixers. Pick according to your needs.

Sorry didn’t notice your budget.

Any line mixer that is within your budget will do.

Yeah but there aren't many true line mixers at affordable prices. I've found I like the Mackie Onyx series. Nice pre's, nice EQ's, especially the bass shelf for synths, and you can even remove the EQ from the circuit which is nice. They usually don't skimp on inserts or auxes either.

Or as I mentioned earlier, if you have the Symphony 1, you should be able to add another card with more inputs. They're rather hard to find now though, and some people price them very high, but set up some alerts on ebay/Reverb or something and see if what you need comes up for a reasonable price.
