Recording Magazine – Apogee Quartet Review

“In this review I went through the acrobatics of “setting aside the fact that this is an iOS-compatible gizmo” because one must first realize that the Quartet is one serious interface. Up to 12 inputs, 8 outputs, full monitor management, low-latency mixing, extremely flexible studio control, MIDI integration, and more, all combined with the sound that made Apogee famous… it all adds up to the Quartet being a very heavy hitter in the DAW-hardware arena. Once you’ve grasped that, then you can add in that it makes a brilliant portable iOS audio/MIDI solution, one that takes the iPad’s processing power seriously when paired with the right apps.

Whether you believe the future is in the palm of your hand or you’re still solidly siding with the tried-and-true Mac platform… or if you want to be able to move between both worlds and rely on top-quality interfacing no matter what… then the Quartet is a sound investment that will pay major dividends in your final mixes.”

Unique Squared – Quartet Overview with Miles Walker

“The Apogee Quartet is a solidly built, high quality, USB audio interface for those using Apple products from the iPad and iPhone to Apple laptop and desktop computers. While we can tell you all day how cool, interesting, and useful the iOS connectivity is, the barometer for quality when it comes to interfaces will always be the sound. In that regard you can’t go wrong with the Apogee Quartet with its great analog to digital converters and fantastic sounding microphone pre-amps.”

American Songwriter – Apogee Quartet Review

“Are you a performing songwriter and Apple devotee looking to upgrade your recording setup? Perhaps you have a one or two input recording interface and would like to capture your duo or band in a more organic live setting? Or maybe you simply have outdated gear. If so, make the new Apogee Quartet your command central and don’t look back.” – Apogee Quartet Review

“The results were nothing short of spectacular. After comparison with TC Electronic, Focusrite and NI interfaces, the Apogee dusted the competition and produced a much more natural, open sound. The stereo image seemed wider, yet tighter and the overall sonic quality was actually less fatiguing over long periods.”

Sound on Sound – Apogee Quartet Review

“When judging the value of something like the Quartet, you have to factor in what it might cost you to add decent mic preamps to a more mundane interface and also the cost of a separate monitor controller. You also have to consider logistics — where is everything going to fit? Quartet provides a compact solution capable of true ‘big boys’ performance. “
