Apogee ONE USB Microphone and Audio Interface for iPad, iPhone, and Mac

  • Overview

    Entirely new, the Apogee ONE microphone and USB audio interface lets you easily capture impressively professional recordings on your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Mac. Its special circuitry helps provide outstanding performance for iPad use and low latency USB 2.0 performance for Mac.

    Legendary Apogee sound quality

    Get the world-renowned quality of Apogee's mic preamps, AD/DA converters, and clocking in a portable, affordable form factor. ONE is built with carefully selected components and a highly efficient circuit design to deliver a level of audio quality you really can hear.

    ONE is a microphone

    A built-in omnidirectional studio-quality condenser microphone lets you quickly capture song ideas, vocals, podcasts, and interviews. There's also a mic clip for placing ONE in just the right position on your microphone stand to capture any sound.

    ONE is an audio interface

    The breakout cable lets you connect a microphone to the XLR input and an electric guitar, bass, or acoustic guitar with pickup to the 1/4-inc instrument input. With up to two simultaneous channels of recording (instrument + built-in or external mic) and Apogee's premium A/D conversion and mic preamp technology, you can make professional recordings anywhere with ONE.

    A new listening experience

    ONE's stereo output delivers audiophile quality sound from iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Mac to your headphones or speakers. Premium D/A conversion ensures that you'll hear every subtle detail of your music, so you can create better mixes and enjoy your iTunes library even more.

    DC power charges iPad

    Adequate power is essential for excellent sound quality. Thanks to a direct digital connection and an external power source, ONE can charge your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch while you record so you can work without interruption.

      Great Product!

I am a professional guitar player and am always on road. I rarely get the time to be in a studio so I have to resort to portable recording. I have tried numerous products that have not worked out so well. I recently purchased the Apogee One and it has been a game changer for me! I use it on the bus with my iPad mostly and it is perfect for getting down those ideas that previously had been hard to record in a professional way. I usually don't write reviews but i highly recommened this product for the at home musician or if you're like me and seem to always be on the road.

      Ooh-wee!

      I also had a challenge with the first unit I bought, but Apple's customer service is second to none, so it was simple to exchange for another one, which so far, I also had a challenge with the first unit I bought, but Apple's customer service is second to none, so it was simple to exchange for another one, which so far, knock wood, works fine. The built in mic is good and handy for capturing ideas on the fly. Using the breakout cable and the xlr to plug in an external mic takes this to another level. The sound is drop dead gorgeous, thanks to Apogee's conversion and pre amps. At least as great as the Duet 2 on my Macbook Pro. It turns the iPad into a mobile pro rig. It's beautiful! Couldn't be happier.

      Not compatible with IOS 9.2

      I have owned an apogee one for about a year. In general an excellent sounding device. However when Apple updated IOS to 9.2 it stopped working and they have I have owned an apogee one for about a year. In general an excellent sounding device. However when Apple updated IOS to 9.2 it stopped working and they haven't bothered fixing it. None of the inputs work without unbearable popping and clicking noise ( I now have a device that hasn't worked for 8 weeks, pretty poor. Even more galling is apogee continue to advertise this device as compatible with iOS when it's not

      Fantastic Professional Grade Product at a consumer affordable price!

      I was overwhelmed by the quality. Pro grade studio sound in and out for a consumer price range. There is very low distortion which is critical in high-fidelity I was overwhelmed by the quality. Pro grade studio sound in and out for a consumer price range. There is very low distortion which is critical in high-fidelity music recording and playback. You can here the difference. You can feel like you are in the concert room with your eyes closed. It sounds real, like 1000$ plus stereo system amplifiers. Worth the investment.
