The Apogee Electronics Duet 3 is a 2x4 USB Type-C audio interface. Combining Apogee's legendary sonic performance and intuitive operability with an ultracompact, elegant, and durable design for musicians, producers, and songwriters in pursuit of their best sound no matter where they are. While the low-profile exterior combines an aluminum base with a Gorilla Glass top to make it durable and attractive, the internals boast built-in hardware DSP to power the optional Symphony ECS Channel Strip plug-in for signal sculpting and polishing without bogging down your computer or iOS device.
Featuring two world-class microphone preamps with phantom power and plenty of gain to ensure robust amplification even for low-output ribbons and classic dynamic microphones. It can also accept line-level signals or direct connections from instruments such as electric guitar and bass. With two balanced analog 1/4" TRS line/monitor outputs and a stereo 3.5mm headphone output, the Duet 3 can feed a set of monitors and your favorite headphones at the same time. The main and headphone outputs are independently addressable, giving the flexibility to route separate mixes to an artist in the studio, a performer onstage, or a house PA system.
