Apogee introduces Duet 3, the third-generation version of its portable USB audio interface

The original Apogee Duet, released in 2007, shattered the expectations of what a home studio interface could be, and it looks like they are about to raise the bar once again.

The all-new Duet 3 brings next-generation Apogee performance and features to a stunning looking, ultra-low profile design. Duet 3 includes on-board hardware DSP that powers the Symphony ECS Channel Strip* for zero-latency recording with FX. 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.

The interface is also compatible with the new Duet Dock, which is designed to help with cable management and give a more ergonomic experience when using Duet 3 on a studio desk.

Available from July, Duet 3 is priced at $599. It’s optimised for Logic Pro X but is compatible with both Mac and PC. Find out more information on the Apogee website.
