Analog and digital design in harmony

Achieving pristine sound quality in a digital audio interface requires skilled engineers who harmonize AD/DA converters, digital clocking, analog circuitry, and power management technology to achieve a balanced blend of carefully selected components and thoughtful design. Duet is the result of decades of innovation and expertise, delivering sound quality unmatched in its class.

LEGENDARY AD/DA CONVERTERS AND WORLD-CLASS MICROPHONE PREAMPS

With two inputs and four outputs from Apogee's famous AD/DA converters and two premium preamps, Duet is the perfect partner for your home and mobile studio. Connect microphones, guitars, keyboards, and line-level devices to capture every detail.

Monitor and mix with the richness and dimension of your sound through two balanced, analog line-level outputs for speakers. And feed your headphones with a dedicated headphone mix.

FIRST-CLASS PREAMPLIFIER

One of the most important components for high-quality recording is your preamp, and the preamps in the Apogee Duet are top-of-the-line. With up to 65dB of gain and 48V of phantom power, you can record any audio source clearly and accurately, even with the most demanding microphones. Apogee's meticulous design keeps noise and distortion low, even when you crank up the gain.

Connection to the onboard DSP

To get the best recording possible, you need to be able to record quickly and smoothly, and few things are more annoying than recording latency. Duet gives you built-in DSP for Apogee FX processing to precisely shape your sound at the input and give you great-sounding tracks while eliminating the latency that can occur during recording.
