Availability:  


A pocket-sized music interface that lets you create professional recordings anywhere.

The Apogee ONE USB Interface is a pocket-sized music input device featuring the award winning sound quality that made Apogee Electronics famous. Designed to work easily with Apple's GarageBand, Logic, Final Cut, or any Core Audio compliant application, Apogee one helps you create professional recordings anywhere.

With Apogee ONE, you can record a single channel of audio using the specially tuned enclosure microphone, an instrument input for guitar, bass, or keyboard, or a world-class microphone preamp input. Listening with ONE is an entirely new experience as well. Hear your recordings and your iTunes library with incredible dimension and clarity through ONE's studio-quality stereo output.

It's an Apogee: Legendary Sound Quality at an Incredible Price
If you've been in a commercial recording studio, you've probably seen Apogee gear. If you haven't, you've heard it. Apogee products are preferred by recording pros around the world and have set the industry standard in professional recording for over two decades. ONE makes the legendary quality of Apogee available in a portable form factor and at the lowest price ever for a premium computer recording interface.

Take ONE Anywhere
ONE is powered by a USB connection to your Mac and offers 24 bit audio at sample rates of 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz for pristine sound quality. With a footprint slightly larger than an iPhone, ONE's compact size is travel friendly, allowing you to record and perform professionally any place your music takes you.

There's a Mic Inside: Tuned Aperture Microphone Technology
Unlike any interface in its category, ONE features an internal reference condenser microphone that has been fine-tuned by professional recording engineers to create Apogee's Tuned Aperture Microphone™ technology. ONE with its tuned aperture microphone and fitted with the optional custom mic mount is the ultimate portable recording solution for
quickly capturing musical ideas, recording high quality demos, rehearsals, podcasts, lectures, interviews, voice-overs and more.

Choose your Mic: World-Class Mic Pre input
For those who prefer the sound of their favorite microphone, ONE features a worldclass microphone preamp with phantom power and a gain range of +10 to 63 dB. Based on the award winning mic preamps in Apogee's Ensemble and Duet, ONE's preamp is digitally controlled by the encoder knob. Level can also be set from within Apogee's Maestro, or your Mac's Sound and Audio MIDI Setup control panels.

Guitar, Bass and Keyboards: Instrument Inputs
Plug-in and play is made easy with ONE's instrument input. Perfect for guitar, bass, and keyboard, ONE's instrument input has extremely low noise and a transparent signal path making it the ideal solution for recording or performing live with your Mac.

Headphones or Speakers: Studio Quality Stereo Output
Hear your recordings in their truest form and rediscover your iTunes library with ONE's studio quality stereo output. Controlled by the encoder knob, the output of ONE is supplied by the 1/8" jack on the front allowing connection to either headphones or powered speakers.

ONE Touch Control: The multifunction encoder knob
All of ONE's features are selectable and adjustable with just a click and a turn. ONE's single encoder knob provides direct access to the tuned enclosure microphone, external microphone, instrument and output functions for input level and volume adjustment.

  • Are you SERIOUS?!?!

    As reviewed by A.M. Oliveras on 3/7/2011

    I researched for two years before deciding on an interface. I listened to everything on the market in a similar price range that I could, and believe you me, I heard more than a few. I was worried that Apogee's entry level piece was going to punish me for not needing two to eight inputs, not to mention the built in mic I was ready to dismiss based on combination technology's track record. ( You generally get bits of both and the best of neither.) Also, given two reviewer's on this site's experience, I had just about given up on the ONE as an option. (see "fragile" and "unfortunate") I decided to call Apogee directly and to my surprise, not only did I talk to someone, but had all my concerns addressed by several nice folks who, if they were bothered by my many, many questions, showed no signs. I was assured the mic, preamps and digital conversion would be pro quality to say the least. Based on that, I took the jump. I never buy extra coverage for anything but based on "fragile", I bought it on this. Plus, the gc guy told me it now included accidents! (I'm lucky I make it out of the house in one piece sometimes.) I also bought a small single mic box...just in case. I got it home and within minutes had it installed and working with ALL of my software with no glitching or failure. (Ableton, Garage band, Studio One Pro. Hey "unfortunate- clean out your hard drive!) I compared the mic on the ONE against my Dragonfly and Trident and was flabbergasted to find that the ONE held it's own quite nicely. Using identical source material I was hard pressed to hear a huge difference between takes. I have 15 years professional voice over and production experience, and know broadcast quality when I hear it. Not wanting to be too easily convinced, I broke out the cheapest guitar I could find (unfortunately mine) and checked the sound from open E to top E harmonics. The bottom sounded clear and natural without a trace of proximity or boominess. The harmonics sounded infinite. One thing I almost forgot was to check it out on my itunes and was again blown away. I had goosebumps listening to music I've owned for 20 years. I could actually hear the difference in tape stock being used on several recordings. My old jazz stuff had a presence I've never known or heard before. (Imagine going from atari on a black and white to a PS3 in IMAX. My ONE has about 3k miles and counting on it. In a world filled with disappointment, ( Prequel Star Wars kinda sucked, Jennifer Love Hewitt has yet to make me breakfast in bed) ONE lives up to the hype.

  • Great for scratch tracks that might even make the album

    As reviewed by Benjamin Mell on 8/10/2012

    I appreciate the ease with which the ONE connects w/ Apple devices. That's not the highlight, but it's got to be mentioned. Practically, I recorded some scratch guitar/vocal for our next album and ended up keeping the takes I recorded. The mic sounds clear and bright enough to be high-quality, but doesn't lack the low-end frequencies some condensers do. Easy and beautiful. Thanks for the fine work Apogee!

  • bad quality, bad service

    As reviewed by J on 6/12/2011

    The unit developed a bad hum and static that would show up in the recordings. it didn't matter if I was recording from the built in mic or either of the inputs. The unit is now useless as it happened just outside of the 1 year warranty and apogee wanted $140 to fix it, but I haven't heard back from them in months. Before it broke it was decent. Felt very light and plasticky. also felt the breakout cable connection was weak. The microphone was impressive while it lasted. overall not satisfied for $250.
