Apogee
DUET 3

2 IN x 4 OUT USB-C Audio Interface

In 2007, the original Apogee Duet surpassed all expectations for a home studio interface. Professional, personal and portable, the Apogee Duet revolutionized independent recording, enabling musicians, producers and engineers to work with Apogee's legendary sound quality, elegant design and effortless ease of use.

The new Duet 3 brings the power and features of Apogee's next generation into a beautiful, ultra-slim glass and aluminum chassis. The Duet 3 features built-in hardware DSP with the Symphony ECS channel strip for zero latency recording with FX.

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 unparalleled sound quality in its class.

Legendary AD/DA converters and microphone preamps.

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

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

Premium Preamplifier

Your preamp is one of the most important components for high-quality recording. The Apogee Duet's preamps are the best on the market. 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. Latency is the enemy of good audio. Duet's built-in DSP for Apogee FX processing lets you precisely shape your sound at the input, ensuring great-sounding tracks and eliminating the latency that can occur during recording.

Beautiful inside and outside

Sound quality is the top priority, but the stunning design is a close second. Your audio interface is the heart of your studio. It should be a welcoming partner in your creative space.

The Duet knob provides a luxurious and reliable feel for adjusting monitor levels, mic pre gain, and navigating through functions. The knob's subtle purple underlighting adds the perfect accent to the Duet experience. The low-profile housing is covered in scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass for a modern look and rugged protection.

The new Duet Breakout cable has been redesigned with optimized connectors and longer cables. Connect everything together and store it on your desk for a clean and organized workspace—it's that simple.
