The DUET 2 takes several restarts before it is recognised. This is a massive issue for me and its always been happening. the product is about a year old and latest support email was so patronising I was livid. Apogee should be brought to justice for selling such products. How is this even justified?!
Is there any fix to the Duet 2 not being picked up by the MacBook Pro? Using USB or Mains Power adapter ? Thanks
Not to be snarky but the fix is to get a different DAC. I empathize with you: i had the Duet for 3 months and just gave up and bought something else. I actually bought 2 different DAC's and they have both been stable with no issues. I've spent 0 hours troubleshooting, and/or getting angry. The a-ha moment for me was when one of the Apogee reps in this thread suggested making sure you were using the supplied Apogee USB cable for the Duet 2.
There are so many great converters, with equivalent features, it's a wonder people who actively record music would tolerate the issues the Duet 2 has. Honestly, how are people willing to be dealing with these issues for over a year
