Apogee Duet 3 Audio Interface

Professional audio interface in a portable, sleek shell

Description

In 2007, the first Apogee Duet set a new standard for home studio interfaces, giving musicians a portable, high-quality device with an elegant look and an intuitive design. The Duet 3 brings next-generation Apogee performance, with a new minimal, sleek design featuring a scratch-resistant aluminium finish. 

Thanks to the built-in hardware DSP powering the Symphony ECS Channel Strip, you’ll be able to record with effects and enjoy zero latency. Specially tuned by Bob Clearmountain, the ECS channel features custom presets inspired by the legendary mixer, that you can dial in for an immediate pro recording sound. 

This interface is compact and versatile, ideal for music creation, pro audio recording, podcasting and gaming both in a studio or on-the-go. Use your Duet 3 on Mac or Windows and take your desktop experience to the next level with the Duet Dock, for improved connectivity options. 

KEY FEATURES

  • Ultimate portable audio interface with sleek design and scratch proof glass finish
  • 2 inputs and 4 outputs of Apogee's acclaimed AD/DA converters
  • 2 word-class preamps with noise and distortion internally balanced
  • Analog balanced outputs for speakers and zero-ohm output for your headphones
  • On-board hardware DSP cancels any delay to enjoy zero-latency recording 
  • Apogee Control 2 software ensures your interface reacts efficiently to any future MacOS and Windows update

SUPERIOR SOUND QUALITY

Portability doesn’t mean giving up on first-class sound. Combining AD/DA converters, digital clocking, analog circuitry and power management technology to give you the best audio interface with a modern, compact design.

Duet 3 features 2 inputs and 4 outputs of the famed Apogee AD/DA converters, plus two world-class pre-amps. Connect guitars, synths, microphones and line level devices to capture every detail. You’ll also be able to monitor your recordings via speakers powered through 2 truly-balanced, line-level analog outputs. If you want an even more precise mix, the zero-ohm headphone output will allow you to get a dedicated headphone mix. 

WORLD CLASS PREAMPS 

A crucial factor for an exceptional recording are preamps. Apogee Duet puts into service 2 world-class preamps with up to 60dB of gain and 48v phantom power. You can cleanly and precisely record any sound with the most demanding microphones. Don’t be afraid to crank up the gain, Apogee technology keeps noise and distortion down. 

PLUG-IN TO ONBOARD DSP

Don’t let your performance be spoiled by latency. The onboard hardware DSP interacts with the Symphony ESC Channel Strip (sold separately) to process effects in real time and give an instant tone and shape to your sound, avoiding any unwanted delay. 

The Symphony ECS Channel Strip, tuned by legendary mixer Bob Clearmountain, includes a vintage-modeled 3-band EQ, Compression and Saturation controls that let you create the optimal blend of channel FX for tracking vocals or acoustic instruments. Dial in professional presets to adjust your mix in no time. 

NEXT-GENERATION CONTROL

Get the most out of your Duet 3 with the all-new Apogee Control 2 software. You’ll get total control of all Duet functions and features, including in the Symphony ECS channel strip running on the hardware DSP. Control 2 also ensures that Apogee support and engineering reacts to any future update of your MacOS and Windows system. 

BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT

Your audio interface is the control room of your project, so why shouldn’t it have a luxurious feel and design as well? The Duet multi-function digital knob has a sleek look for dialing in monitor levels and mic pre-gain control that will light up purple backlit LEDs on the desktop interface. The low-profile body is also finished with a scratch-resistant cover glass, for a modern look and solid feel. 

DUET DOCK

Duet represents the ultimate standard for on the go recording situations, with its small footprint and flexible breakout cable. Nevertheless, when you’re in the studio the Duet Dock will truly enhance all the power of your Duet 3. The Dock positions Duet at the ideal angle for quick adjustments and meter and function visibility. The rear panel connectors on Duet Dock make it easier to organise and connect your cables to Duet too.
