Apogee Duet

Hi gang...thought I might give my initial impressions of the Apogee Duet Mic Pre/Converter that I've recently acquired, in case someone might be doing a search on the device.

Apogee recently added Windows driver support for the Duet, ( available for download at which was previously only able to allow the Duet to be used on a Mac. The new drivers for Windows are solid, installed easily, and the Duet integrated quickly and seamlessly with Samplitude Pro X.

Apogee Duet- Thoughts?

Member for

Does anyone here have any experience with the Apogee Duet? Not the Duet 2, just the regular Duet released in 2013. I have the opportunity to pick one up from a friend who's switched over to a UAD 8 ch i-o.
I've heard good things about apogee preamps and converters, and I've probably passed signal through their converters at some point working at other studios, but have never owned anything Apogee myself. Anyone have any experience with it, or thoughts?
Thanks! :)

So, three years ago I bought what I thought was a "future proofed" Apogee Symphony i/o (the original one, not the Mark II).

I've come to discover that, while the modules are upward compatible, the chassis is not. Further to my chagrin, the older modules are not dropping in price. If anything they are inching back upward due to people like me being locked into the old chassis format.

I vow to never again purchase Apogee gear.

Stay with firewire Apogee Ensemble/Avalon 737 or Go all UAD ?

Apogee Mic 96k or something else...what are my options?

Hi, I'm very interested in getting the Apogee 96k mic to use when using my new 128 g iPad mini, however I would like to know what other options are out there that may work for me. I've already got an Apogee One which has a guitar input as well as a XLR mic input which will allow me to use a non USB microphone with my iPad so I've been considering purchasing an audio technics AT 2035 as a more affordable option as well. I also have a ZOOM Q2HD handy cam with a nice built in mic and this little unit can be used as a USB mic for recording.

Its becoming annoying playing guitar with my foot on the thing any advice on how to sort this out?


Getting the best out of APOGEE Jam, USB Mic and GARAGEBAND

I am new to the world of recording and learning about all the gear. I want to know if there is anything I can do to make my guitar sound fuller/louder and with more life running through apogee jam into garageband. It can sound a little tinny to me it just feels like it needs a boost. I know that the JAM is a preamp, but If i hooked it up with another preamp or some kind of DI box would it give me this boost I desire? I have a USB mic, the Samson C03U can anything be done with this to give it that boost and life?
