Leaders in digital audio recording since 1985 As an industry leader in digital audio technology for over 35 years, Apogee is the choice for top artists and recording professionals on countless Grammy- and Oscar-winning recordings. This is because Apogee digital audio converters, preamps and plug-ins simply sound amazing. Hearing is believing Achieving pristine sound quality in a digital audio converter requires engineering that artfully pairs AD/DA converters, digital clocking, analog design and power technology. Duet is the result of decades of innovation and expertise, resulting in sound quality unmatched in its class. With 2x4 channels of legendary Apogee AD/DA conversion, plus two world-class microphone preamps, Duet is the perfect centerpiece for your home and mobile studio. Connect microphones, guitars, keyboard and line level devices to capture every detail. Monitor the full depth and imaging 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. Turn up the mic, not the noise One of the most critical components for high-quality recordings, the mic pre in Apogee Duet is extraordinary. With an astounding amount of gain and 48V phantom power, you can cleanly and precisely capture any audio source with even the most gain-hungry microphones. And thanks to meticulous Apogee engineering, you’ll keep noise and distortion down, even at higher gain levels.

Zero-latency recording with the Symphony ECS channel strip Tuned by legendary mixer Bob Clearmountain, the Symphony ECS channel strip plug-in 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 onboard DSP.
