Convenient OLED display tells you everything you need to know
The Apogee Duet for iPad and Mac offers a full-color OLED display that gives you visual feedback for a number of functions, including metering, input/output value levels, muting, phantom power, and more. All of this information is also available in the convenient and well-designed Maestro software for iOS. Beyond that, the Apogee Duet features two configurable touch pads, located on either side of its main encoder knob. Use them to quickly access output functions, assigned through Maestro 2, such as "mute outputs," "toggle headphone source," "dim outputs," and beyond.
Immaculate, next-gen AD/DA converters
Much like its mic pres, the Duet's AD/DA converters are the result of Apogee's no-compromise design, giving you the best possible audio and monitoring quality. Duet's advanced circuitry and state-of-the-art components deliver a streamlined signal path. The result? Amazingly transparent-sounding recordings.
World-class mic preamps
Duet's two microphone preamplifiers incorporate cutting-edge technology, giving you seamless gradation throughout their incredible 75dB gain range. This lets you dial in your ideal level with the main controller knob (or from within software), while enjoying amazingly low noise and stunning, lustrous detail. Duet's mic preamps play nicely with all dynamic, condenser, and ribbon mics, letting you capture audio without compromise.

I want to marry this thing I love it so much!
by Andi from Virginia, USAI'm an audiobook narrator with a home studio. I was having trouble with an M-Box that was on its last legs, and my Sweetwater rep suggested this little unit. WHOA. Easy to set up, I love the Maestr... read more [+]o software that comes with it, love the simplicity of the design and controls, and the sound...with my Neumann TLM102 hooked up to the Duet, there is SO much more headroom!! I didn't know there would be such a difference. After hearing what this unit can do all by itself, I not only got rid of the M-Box, I also sold a tube preamp that had been helping the M-Box limp along. The Duet is all I need for great-sounding recordings. This is one hot little piece of equipment...I am in love...you should totally get this thing. Absolutely worth the price and then some. close [-]

Apogee Duet for iPad and Mac
by Estuardo Salazar from Westmisnter, MD USAvery nice interface, very Mac friendly, thats what i love the most, and being able to record with my iPhone or iPad, its really awesome, actually I wasn't very excited about the iPad option, but now t... read more [+]hat the option is available, actually i found it very handy, I have an iMac 27 inch, so I was planing on recording one song using the echo ambience of my bathroom, just as an experiment, and being able to use my iPhone was so simple that makes me make more things that i would never imagine to do if I would have to take my iMac, I have a recording session to record voices and Im already plaining on bouncing all the backtracks and just record the voice with my ipad mini, so i don't have to take all my set up, Im justs planing on taking with me just one stand, a mic, interface, iPad and my duet, also being able to record at 192 kHz is awesome, even thought people say that there is no difference because you can't hear it, but with pro tools 10 at 32 bit floating point and recording at 192 kHz i get more resolution, and sounds very crisp, the A/D convertors are awesome, and very handy option if you have external pre amp very easy to turn them off, so you can have any other external pre amp, i really love it, you shouldn't hesitate, if your environment is Mac, this is the best interface you can buy close [-]
