Apogee Duet – How to connect external Mic Pre Amps
In this tutorial we will show you how to bypass Duet’s internal Mic Pre Amps connect an external Mic Pre Amp.
Connect your Microphone to the input of the external mic pre amp.
Now connect the output of the Mic Pre Amp to Duet’s XLR input.
Only use the XLR connection of Duet
Do not use the 1/4″ input as it was designed specifically for instruments.
In the drop down menu you will see four choices +4, -10, Mic, and Instrument.
If the output of your mic pre amp is balanced choose +4
If the output of your mic pre amp is un-balanced choose -10
We are using a mic pre with a balanced output… so we will choose +4
Now adjust the gain on your external mic pre amp and you’re ready to begin recording.
