Apogee Duet 3 - Premium USB Audio Interface with On-Board Hardware DSP

Designed to be the audiophile-quality centerpiece of a mobile recording setup, the Apogee Electronics Duet 3 is a 2x4 USB Type-C audio interface bringing Apogee's legendary sonic performance and intuitive operability to an ultracompact, elegant, and durable form factor for musicians, producers, and songwriters in pursuit of their best sound no matter where they are. While the low-profile exterior combines an aluminum base with a Gorilla Glass top to make it durable and attractive, the internals boast built-in hardware DSP to power the included Symphony ECS Channel Strip plug-in for signal sculpting and polishing without bogging down your computer or iOS device.

It features two world-class microphone preamps with phantom power and plenty of gain to ensure robust amplification even for low-output ribbons and classic dynamics such as the Shure SM7B. It can also accept line-level signals or direct connections from instruments such as electric guitar and bass. With two balanced analog 1/4" TRS line/monitor outputs and a stereo 3.5mm headphone output, the Duet 3 can feed a set of monitors and your favorite headphones at the same time. The main and headphone outputs are independently addressable, giving the flexibility to route separate mixes to an artist in the studio, a performer onstage, or a house PA system.
