Apogee Duet - Audio Interface for iPad and Mac

The Apogee Duet is a 2x4 audio interface for iPad and Mac that has become industry standard for portable recording. The Duet features legendary Apogee AD/DA conversion, 2 world-class microphone preamps, USB MIDI I/O and ESS Sabre32 DAC technology.

Features

  • AD/DA conversion for recording up to 192kHz / 24-bit.
  • 2 analogue inputs with world-class mic preamps and selectable 48v phantom power for connecting microphones, instruments or line-level devices.
  • 4 analogue outputs – 2 balanced 1/4” mono outputs for speakers or outboard gear, 1/4” stereo headphone output.
  • USB 2.0 High Speed connection to Mac or Windows PC
  • Direct digital connection to iPad and iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Lightning and 30-pin cable sold separately).
  • Software control of hardware parameters including input selection and low latency monitoring.

 

Inputs & Outputs

Breakout Cable

Duet’s breakout cable includes 2 combination mic/instrument connectors (XLR and 1/4” built into a single connector) and 2 balanced 1/4” connectors for speakers. The elegant single cable-to-junction design allows for easy cable management and the locking connection to Duet is robust and stylish.

2 Analog Inputs

Duet’s 2 combination input connectors (XLR and 1/4”) allow you to connect microphones, guitars and keyboards or your favourite external mic preamps, compressors and EQs.

4 Analog Outputs

Duet includes 4 analogue outputs. 2 1/4” balanced outputs for connection to speakers or outboard equipment and a separate, independently controlled 1/4” stereo headphone output.

With these 4 outputs it’s possible for a DJ to monitor a separate mix in headphones while sending a house mix to the club, a live performer to send a click track to in-ear monitors while sending a backing track to front-of-house, and a recording engineer to send a headphone

MIDI

Duet provides a single USB MIDI connection for your CoreMIDI compatible keyboard, synth, or DJ controller. This eliminates the need for an external MIDI interface and promotes an all-in-one music creation solution where Duet and Maestro manage all audio and MIDI. On iPad, Duet’s MIDI connection allows both Duet and a keyboard or DJ controller to be connected at the same time to the iPad’s single connector (Lightning or 30-pin).

 

Control

Full Color OLED Display

The high resolution OLED screen built into Duet’s top is the main control center for Duet, delivering visual feedback for multiple functions including metering, numeric value for input and output levels, input grouping, and phase, muting, phantom power and Soft Limit indication. With this display you know the status of any input and output at any given moment without having to refer to Maestro or your recording software.

Configurable Touchpads

Duet also introduces configurable touchpads. The 2 touchpads, located on either side of the encoder knob, allow you to quickly access output functions such as “Mute Outputs”, “Dim Outputs”, “Sum to Mono” or “Toggle Headphone Source”. Each are assignable using a drop-down menu within Apogee’s new Maestro 2. This unique feature allows you to select the function you want and access it directly from Duet without having to look at software.

Multi-function Controller Knob

Along with its sleek aluminium chassis, the multi-function controller knob is one of the most recognizable features of Duet’s design. This central control feature allows you to quickly and easily toggle thru Duet’s inputs and outputs and set levels while looking at Duet’s dynamic OLED display.
