Apogee Electronics Duet 2 by Charlie
The Apogee Duet 2 is simple and very quick to set-up. It doesn’t come with a CD but a program downloaded from their website called Apogee Maestro 2 needs to be installed. It also comes with a breakout cable, which splits out to two XLR female jacks and two instrument cables (XLR/JACK).
When I first tested the Apogee Duet 2 I was blown away with the pristine quality. Also the ease of setting the gain with the large silver dial, which is also very well built. The whole device is very well built with a very sturdy casing. Mostly everything you want to access you can access through the Duet 2’s silver dial. Before I was using the Apogee Duet 2 I was using the Line 6 Toneport KB37. The difference in quality was huge. The Duet 2 sounds very large and is equipped with very clean preamps.
If you work from an apple computer and are looking for a small audio interface with exceptional audio quality then this is for you. The only drawback I would say is the limited amount of I/0. The price may seem like an investment but if you are passionate about creating pristine audio tracks then it is defiantly worth it. You will be blown away with this tiny box!
