Apogee Duet USB Audio Interface for iPad, iPhone and Mac

  • Overview

    The award-winning Apogee Duet combines an audio interface, headphone amp, and MIDI interface that makes it a snap to create professional recordings in any location on your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Mac. Incorporating Apogee's legendary digital audio conversion and world-class mic preamps, Duet is the best way to capture your music with incredible dimension and detail.

    Legendary Apogee sound quality

    From the mic preamps to the AD/DA converters and the clocking, Duet utilises cutting-edge Apogee technology. With components carefully selected in critical listening tests and a highly efficient circuit design, Duet was built by Apogee engineers to make a difference you can hear.

    Full-colour OLED display

    Duet's primary visual control center is a full-colour OLED high-resolution display. It gives you clear visual feedback for numerous essential functions, such as metering, numeric value for input and output levels, group, phase, muting, phantom power and Soft Limit indication.

    Configurable touch pads

    Two configurable touch pads on either side of the multi-function controller knob let you promptly manage such output functions as “mute output," “dim outputs," or “sum to mono.” And there's a drop-down menu that lets you assign each one within Apogee's Maestro iOS and Mac application.

    MIDI on iPad

    Duet provides a single USB MIDI connection for your CoreMIDI compatible keyboard, synth or DJ controller. 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 30-pin dock port (or via the Lightning connector using an Apple Lightning to 30-pin adapter).

    DC power charges iOS devices

    With a direct digital connection and an external power source, Duet is able to charge your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch while you record so you won't experience any interruptions.
