Apogee Electronics has announced the all-new Duet 3, a 2-in x 4-out USB audio interface and the latest generation in a series of transformative, award-winning products by the company.
In 2007, the original Apogee Duet raised the expectations for what a home studio audio interface should offer. The first-generation Apogee Duet delivered a professional and portable option at a breakthrough price for Apogee quality AD/DA conversion and preamps. The original Duet and its predecessors Duet 2 and Duet for iPad and Mac empowered musicians, producers and engineers with legendary Apogee sound quality, elegant design and effortless ease of use.
Now, the all-new Duet 3 brings next-generation Apogee performance and features to a sleek, ultra-low profile design. Duet 3 includes onboard hardware DSP that powers the Symphony ECS Channel Strip for zero-latency recording with FX (Symphony ECS Channel Strip FX and native plugin sold separately).
Tuned by Bob Clearmountain, the ECS Channel Strip features presets custom crafted by the legendary mixer so you can dial in a pro recording sound instantly.
Ideal for music creation, voice recording, streaming and even gaming, creators can use Duet 3 on their Mac or Windows workstations in a home studio or on the go. Duet 3 is also available with the all-new Duet Dock accessory (sold separately), which can optimize input and output cable organization and offer a more ergonomic experience on a studio desk.
