"Apogee points out that the Duet 3 is the result of “decades of innovation,” and this definitely shows. It’s superbly designed and offers stunning results when recording and monitoring clarity. It’s astonishing that it can do all this plus power its own onboard channel strip with zero latency."
The all-new Duet 3 brings next-generation Apogee performance and features to a beautiful ultra-low profile scratch resistant glass and aluminium case. It is reviewed by MusicTech this month where it is praised for its "Superb recording results and overall performance”, "Top quality design and build” and "Onboard DSP for zero-latency recording via a channel strip”.
"The unit is phenomenally well-built with a high-grade feel despite its form factor. It uses a breakout cable to establish audio connections, using two instrument inputs, two mic/line inputs and two balanced outputs. At the Duet end, it uses a proprietary cable to connect, which keeps the body incredibly thin."
"It can record at up to 192kHz at 24-bit, which is remarkable for a unit this compact, and testament to the high-end design and build of the unit. Noise and distortion were very low, even when record levels were cranked right up, and audio capture was clean, crisp and reliable."
“(The Duet 3) offers superior performance for the most demanding producer. In short, its supreme portability does not mean any tradeoffs in terms of quality or fidelity."
“...if quality and portability are paramount to you, it’s an excellent way to get the best of both."
