Apogee Duet FireWire Interface

The Duet is a two-channel FireWire audio interface that features the amazing sound quality that made Apogee Electronics famous. With control functions built directly into Apple's Logic Pro, Soundtrack Pro and GarageBand software, Duet empowers you to create professional recordings effortlessly on your Mac.

With Duet, you can plug in guitars, keyboards, and microphones to record your music, or simply experience how much better your favorite tracks in iTunes sound. Duet is compact and powered by FireWire, so you can pack up your studio and go anywhere your music takes you.

Its dual, 1/4" high impedance inputs allow you to combine and record your two favorite instruments, whether it be two guitars, one bass, one guitar, etc., simultaneously using your favorite Core Audio-compatible application. You can also capture vocals with two microphone inputs that have phantom power and 75dB of gain. Whether you're noodling out new ideas, completing a personal tune, documenting a podcast, or recording a live performance, your new little buddy can handle it. The flexible breakout cables come with icons to make it easy to know what goes where, keeping everything in order, out of the way, and properly connected for maximum input and output, with minimal mess.

Duet's bus-powered FireWire interface frees you from the traditional four-wall studio setting. So grab your laptop, find a spot where inspiration takes you, whether it's in the solace of a park or in the echoey confines of a subway tunnel, turn it on, and start doing your thing.

If you don't have Logic Pro, Soundtrack Pro, Garageband, don't panic. Apogee's includes it's own Maestro software, so you'll still be able to work with any Core Audio-compatible application. Maestro allows you to turn the Duet's multifunction control knob into a one-click manager. Maestro will help you manage all of Duet's capabilities and settings, including I/O level, source selection, muting, mic/instrument gain mode, assign MIDI function controls to the controller knob, assign meter display, and more. Speaking of meter display, Duet comes with LED I/O meters to help you monitor your levels for maximum effectiveness.

Duet is not only great for it's input and interface functions, but it delivers amazing sound quality as well. Whether you're listening to your iTunes collection or latest composition through powered speakers connected to the 1/4" outputs or via the headphone jack, you'll not be disappointed by the crystal clear, playback performance.

Apple Logic Express 8

The latest version of Apple Logic Express features a redesigned, next-generation, single-window interface that includes built-in browsers, a consolidated Arrange window, simplified track setup, and precrafted templates for a variety of music styles and production scenarios. Intuitive writing tools make it easy to utilize any of the 1000's of included Apple Loops or to record your own MIDI samples, notate your creations in real time, and even synch-up with QuickTime movies for more manageable scoring.

It's been said, no one understands creative types. At Apple, they've got a grasp on how musician's think as shown by the release of Logic Express 8. Many artists get ideas on the fly, want to get them captured immediately so they can tweak them, and won't leave them alone until they get the right sound.

Use the transition-smoothing crossfades of the Quick Swiping function to make seamless comps of the best portions of your takes. There are new instruments; effects; multitake recording, editing, and processing functions; portable possibilities as well.
