Professional, personal and portable, Duet revolutionized independent recording and empowered musicians, producers and engineers with legendary Apogee sound quality, elegant design and effortless ease of use.

Superior Sound Quality
Achieving superior sound quality in a digital audio interface requires experienced engineering that artfully orchestrates AD/DA converters, digital clocking, analog circuitry and power management technology to achieve a harmonious blend of carefully selected components and thoughtful design. Duet is the result of decades of innovation and expertise and delivers sound quality unmatched in its class.

Legendary AD/DA Converters
With two inputs and four outputs of legendary Apogee AD/DA conversion, plus two world-class preamps, Duet is the perfect partner for your home and mobile studio. Connect microphones, guitars, keyboard and line level devices to capture every detail. Monitor and mix with the full depth and dimension of your sound through two truly-balanced, line-level analog outputs for speakers. And, power your headphones with a zero-ohm headphone output for a dedicated headphone mix.

World Class Preamps
One of the most critical components for high quality recording is your preamp and the pres in Apogee Duet are world-class. With up to 65dB of gain and 48v phantom power, you can cleanly and precisely capture any audio source with even the most demanding microphones. Meticulous Apogee engineering, keeps noise and distortion down, even as you crank up the gain.

Plug-in to On-board DSP
To capture your best performance, you need to dial in an inspiring sound quickly and easily. And few things are more distracting than latency when trying to record. Duet gives you on-board hardware DSP for FX processing with the Symphony ECS Channel Strip to precisely shape your tone on input and give you great sounding tracks, all while eliminating the delay that can occur while recording.

The Symphony ECS Channel Strip, tuned by legendary mixer Bob Clearmountain, includes EQ, Compression and Saturation controls that let you create the optimal blend of channel FX for tracking vocals or acoustic instruments. Choose from multiple hand crafted Clearmountain presets and record with zero latency through Duet’s on-board hardware DSP.

Sound quality comes first, but elegant design is a close second. After all, you’re always hands-on, controlling listening level and mic pre gain, so why shouldn’t the centerpiece of your studio have a high-end look and feel? The Duet multi-function digital controller knob delivers a luxurious-feel for dialing in monitor levels and mic pre gain, while also giving the desktop interface style accents backlit with purple LEDs.
