World Class Preamps
One of the most critical components for high quality recording is your preamp and the preamps in Apogee Duet are world-class. With up to 65dB 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.
Duet Dock for the Desktop
Duet set the standard for making music and recording on the go with its small footprint and flexible breakout cable. But when working in your studio, the best way to use Duet 3 is with the all-new Duet Dock*. 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 organize and connect your cables to Duet too.
