Recommended Posts

Legendary Sound Quality, Total Portability and Hardware DSP
all Come Together in a Beautiful New Design
 

In 2007, the original Apogee Duet shattered the expectations of what a home studio interface could be. Professional, personal and portable, Duet revolutionized independent recording and 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 beautiful ultra-low profile design.

Tuned by Bob Clearmountain, the ECS Channel Strip includes 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, you can use Duet 3 with your Mac or Windows workstation in your studio or on the go.

You can still upgrade to Windows 10 for free if you ever want.

Wov. I think you may be the first I see complaining from RME. What is that you don't like? (not a fanboy, trapped with UAD :))

This Apogee uses a breakout cable and less analogue inputs than the Baby Pro.

Are Apogee's drivers as good as RME's? I thought that was the main selling point for RME.

I’m afraid so. Nothing beats RME on drivers. Then again, Apogee went Apple Silicon native. Then again again, so did RME.

True. But that dock. THAT DOCK!

Ideally it would come with the dock. But they want $150 for it.

I’m wondering if I shouldn’t just get the MOTU M4 at less than half the price.
