I knew already that my local dealer was probably going to replace it for me but they have to send it to Luthman first and I really can't do without it right now since I'm in the middle of a recording.
Anyways, apogee was really helpful in this and gave me a few alternatives if my local dealer wasn't cooperating.
Luckily my local dealer had a good day and replaced it right away despite their standard procedure plan for these kind of things.
So, here I am with a brand new Apogee Duet 2, unfortunately, I'm pretty sure this solves none of my driver issues.
Here's a little update about my Apogee duet 2.
I got an Apogee duet 2 this last summer. I have had to reinstall the drivers up to five times a month 'cause my MBP suddenly doesn't recognize the hardware anymore. There have been a couple of updates since. Each of them claiming to solve the problem, none of them have.
Besides this "little" problem the display broke down on me after four months. I got a brand new duet 2 that I used for two weeks before that display broke down.
Something's not right about these cards.
To it's defense I should say that when it actually works it sounds brilliant.
I was thinking about, after getting a new one on warranty, switching to the babyface. It all looked promising until I saw that the babyface only goes to 60dB gain. That's not enough for me since my primary microphone is a SM7B. :(
Why why why doesn't apogee solve these issues?
And, anyone else having problems with broken displays?
