If you make music on a Mac, Sweetwater has your ideal studio control center: the Apogee Quartet.
Apogee Quartet USB Audio Interface at a Glance:
You've got the right connections
The Apogee Quartet lets you connect up to four mics, instruments, keyboards or line inputs, plus you can plug in your MIDI controller or keyboard. Quartet is also expandable with up to eight digital inputs via Lightpipe. You can mix everything in stereo and monitor through up to three sets of speakers or even in in 5.1 surround. Designed to be the center of your modern Mac-based studio, Quartet will help you take your projects to the next level.
World-class mic preamps
Quartet's four 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 the software), while enjoying amazingly low noise and stunning, lustrous detail. Quartet's mic preamps play nicely with all dynamic, condenser, and ribbon mics, letting you capture audio without compromise.
Immaculate, next-gen AD/DA converters
Much like its mic pres, the Quartet's AD/DA converters are the result of Apogee's no-compromise design, giving you the best possible audio and monitoring quality. Quartet's advanced circuitry and state-of-the-art components deliver a streamlined signal path. The result? Amazingly transparent-sounding recordings.

by Michael Romkey from Bettendorf, IowaMore great gear from Apogee. Awesome converters. Having four inputs/pres instead of two (I also have a Duet) creates lots of flexibility. Two channels is a little limiting if you move beyond the simpl... read more [+]est recordings in a home studio. Being able to run four mics is a real plus. Sleek design, small footprint, well built, easily portable. Won't replace a 24 channel -- or bigger -- console, but it'll do the job for lots of smaller projects. close [-]

Coming from Metric Halo and this thing is amazing!
by CP from San Francisco, CAThis is only the 3rd or 4th thing I have ever reviewed online because I generally think it is a waste of time. However when a product is this great it deserves recognition. I had been using a Metric ... read more [+]Halo interface for the last 6 years and needed something new. I wanted it to be easy to use and not a lot of clutter or extra software. I rather use 1-2 quality plug-ins and outboard gear than 1,000 software bells and whistles I don't know how to use well. I like making music not reading manuals and talking to people on forums. The quartet is easy to use and I love their maestro mixer software. Very straightforward. I like it much better than MH mixer even though the MH is more powerful in other respects. The quartet sound is incredible. I make everything from dub to psych rock to house in different projects and the sound out of here and into the quartet is incredible. The touch surface is also brilliant with very good displays. I was worried about the lack of hands-on controls but the touch surface is really fluid. Apogee deserves some serious recognition for making this. And the outputs are set-up in a way that makes sense for me. Easy to use outboard gear or have multiple monitors. I am getting another one soon to have some more inputs. And use one on remote locations and one at home. close [-]
