The Apogee ONE is designed for fast and easy recordings on your favorite iOS device or Mac, and it sounds amazing. Using Apogees premium AD/DA conversion paired with its advanced built-in mic, ONE is capable of producing pristine quality audio for podcasts, voice-overs, or just about any music application.

Sound Quality

A difference you will hear
ONE makes the legendary quality of Apogees mic preamps, AD/DA converters and clocking available in a portable form factor and at a great price. With components carefully selected in critical listening tests and a highly efficient circuit design, ONE was built by Apogee engineers to make a difference you can hear.

Pristine, next generation AD/DA converters
ONEs AD/DA converters are designed to deliver the purest recordings and best listening experience possible. ONEs efficient circuitry and state-of-the-art components provide a simplified signal path resulting in incredibly transparent recordings.

Smooth, detailed world-class mic preamps
ONE features two microphone preamps with seamless click-free transitions as the gain increases and decreases throughout the incredible gain range of 0 to 63 dB. This unprecedented feature allows you to dial in the perfect level, either with the controller knob or from within software, while delivering ultra-low noise and smooth, crisp detail. ONEs mic pres are suitable for all dynamic, condenser or ribbon microphones, allowing you to capture any sound without compromise.

Music Creation on iPad

iPad puts you in touch with your creativity
Interacting with iPad to make music is like playing an instrument. In fact, some apps like Apples GarageBand turn your iPad into a guitar or virtual instrument. Whether you are moving faders on a mixer, adjusting software parameters, or editing a waveform, iPads multi-touch interface is a more hands on environment and superior to mouse clicks or track pad swipes.

Theres a music app for everything
There are hundreds of music apps for iOS and iPad. With multi-track recording DAWs like GarageBand and Auria, synths and drum machines like Animoog and DM1, utilities and guitar effects like Audiobus and JamUp Pro, the music creation offering for iPad is vast and varied. And most apps are more affordable than their Mac based counterparts.

Setting up your studio has never been easier
iPad makes everything easier with a simplified user interface and plug and play connectivity for accessories like Apogee audio interfaces. Youll be amazed by how simple it is to set up your studio.

Sharing functionality is built-in to most apps, making it easier then ever to move files and collaborate on different devices including iPad to Mac.

Comments about Apogee ONE for iPad & Mac Audio Interface:

I gave the one five stars. Very simple to set up comes with a stand clip, and neat adapters to use your favorite Mic's. you can even use the internal mic and it doesn't have to be right on the cone like most mic's and man it cleans up nice. the sounds it captures are great I use an audix I5 mic to capture aggressive and tight low end distortion. it works awesome!! Thumbs up for on the move recordings with my ipad air using garage band and auria daw apps!


Excellent for high quality recordings!

Comments about Apogee ONE for iPad & Mac Audio Interface:

I play a very wide range of music and the internal microphone on the One has excellent sound quality that allows me to capture all the nuances of different musical styles. The best thing about the One is that if you have a favorite microphone, you can plug that into the One and use that mic with the One's plug and play interface. I mainly bought this microphone because I have an iPhone 7 Plus and the One allows me to plug it into my phone and then use my headphones (plugged into the One) for monitoring. I mainly make music on my Iphone and the Apogee is perfect for portable music recording!

    Comments about Apogee ONE for iPad & Mac Audio Interface:

    I purchased the ONE a week ago and have yet to get it working. Each day it's another issue as I slowly work through the set up. The Apogee experts have been great, but every step of the install has been a challenge. I finally got output sound only to hear crackling and hissing... checked all the cables, outlets, adjusted buffering... Not fun or easy experience so far.


    Perfect for me

    Comments about Apogee ONE for iPad & Mac Audio Interface:

    I am new to recording music on my own. The Apogee One is perfect for me. I can either record using the built in mic or attach a much more expensive mic to my iPad or Mac. I would recommend this as a great portable system to anyone.
