A High-End Upgrade for Your Mobile Studio

Is Duet 3 Compatible with Apple Silicon? arrow down

Yes, the Apogee Duet 3 is compatible with Apple Silicon (M1) Macs.

Does Duet 3 require external power? arrow down

Computers with USB Type C ports supporting USB 3.0 and up should deliver enough bus power to operate the Duet 3.

On computers with USB Type-A ports (USB 1 and 2), there could be scenarios where insufficient power is available for Duet 3. Under these circumstances, you can use the additional USB-C port to provide the extra power needed.

What is the second USB-C port for? Can I connect Midi to it? arrow down

This port is used for connecting an external power supply only. It does not support any passthrough for other USB or MIDI devices.

Is Duet 3 USB Class-Compliant? arrow down

Yes, all Apogee USB products are class compliant.

Can you run other plugins (like reverb) on Duet’s DSP? arrow down

No, the Duet 3 internal DSP only runs the ECS Channels Strip.

What is the difference between Apogee Duet 2 and Duet 3? arrow down

Duet 3 is a completely new design based on the latest analog and digital innovation from Apogee. The result is a new generation of best-in-class sound quality improvements, including significantly better dynamic range and an even better-sounding headphone amplifier that uses our Zero-Ohm technology.

Duet 3 also includes embedded DSP for processing audio on input to appeal to artists that want to monitor with the lowest latency possible

Testimonials

Joel Taylor
“I’m a long-time Apogee user. I’ve had every Duet. The build quality with Apogee is really what you pay for. The incredible sound, the technology, the sleek design – it’s really an amazing unit. What I love about the Duet is you can take it anywhere. From session to session, you can have studio quality audio and amazing recordings in the palm of your hands. Apogee is known for their converters, but the mic pres are so good on this Duet. They’re punchy, clear, they’re not sterile. My U47 straight into the Apogee pre is a great combination. I really can’t say enough positive things about the Duet. If you don’t have one already, go out and get one. You won’t regret it!”
