Apogee has unveiled a new USB audio interface for Mac, the Quartet. As you might expect, the Quartet has four analog inputs, which can be used for line, instrument, or microphone sources. There are also eight outputs — three stereo pairs of line outs that can be used to feed monitors or line-level gear, and a stereo headphone out. Eight digital inputs are also provided on lightpipe. Resolution up to 24-bit/192kHz are supported.
With Apogee’s legendary AD/DA onboard, you know the sound quality is stellar, and handy features, such as full control room management, bus power, and word clock output and MIDI I/O make the Quartet suitable to be the centerpiece for your entire studio rig. Maestro software is included for routing and latency control.
