Welcome to the wonderful, pristine sounding and professionally featured Apogee Duet Firewire Audio Interface.
Apogee is world-renowned when it comes to professional audio quality and the portable, powerful, 2 channel Duet firewire interface is no exception. Whether on the go or in the studio, the Apogee Duet will satisfy your professional music making needs with all that it offers.
The Apogee Duet is a high-end 2 channel, 2 way (A/D D/A) interface designed for use with Apple’s Logic Pro DAW, Soundtrack Pro and GarageBand, or any Core Audio application. It includes 2 channels of pure, clean yet robust microphone preamps with selectable 48V phantom power, a pair of ¼” high impedance, unbalanced analog inputs for guitars, synths, and just about anything with analog outputs, a pair of ¼” outputs to send to your speaker monitor setup as well as a high level headphone output. All connections are via the included breakout cable. There’s a multi-function controller knob for volume and input gain control as well as assignable midi control.
Need software? Apogee's powerful Maestro software is available as a free download from the Apogee website. Maestro allows you to use the Apogee Duet with any Core Audio-compatible software application. All of Duet’s functions are easily controlled and configured using Maestro which also allows Duet’s controller knob to perform a slew of functions including levels, panning, song position (acts as a jog/shuttle), headphone and monitor mute. The direct, complete integration with Logic Pro, Soundtrack Pro and GarageBand make it a breeze to navigate through all the recording functions of these popular Apple software titles and assists you in creating professional sounding productions with relative ease! The Apogee Duet also serves as a fantastic audio output for your Itunes collection as well as Internet radio and video audio.
Apogee Duet receives its power from the FireWire cable so no worries when it comes to powering up. When it comes to a reasonably priced, high-end solution for mobile or studio recording, the Apogee Duet simply can’t be beat.
