機能のプレビュー:Apogeeのデュエット2
Rounik Sethi on Wed, March 30th | 14 comments
With the recent slew of exciting hardware announcements from Apogee (Jam and Mike) you might be forgiven for thinking that Christmas has come early! Add to that, their latest product announcement, the

から刺激的なハードウェアの発表の最近のスルーとApogee社 (ジャムとマイク)あなたはクリスマスが早く来たと考えても許されるかもしれない! 、そのために彼らの最新の製品発表、追加デュエット2私の横にポータブルオーディオインターフェイスのために、そして私の期待が高まってきた。

私は過去3年間のフィールドでスタジオ内外で私の好みのオーディオインターフェースとなっているApogeeのデュエット(バージョン1)、の自慢している所有者です。それは、すでに優秀な音質、二つの入力と出力、ロジック、サウンドトラックPro、MainStageのとGarageBand内で右からなめらかな、セクシーなデザインと超簡単な制御を提供しています。

So how can Apogee possibly improve on one of my favorite pieces of studio kit? Let's take a closer look...

より多くのアウトプット

デュエットは2現在DJのために別個のミックスをモニターしたり、ライブ演奏時にドラマーやハウスのフロントにサブミックスにクリックトラックを送信する方が適していますすべき4つのアナログ出力を装備しています。スタジオではこれは、モニターの2つのペアを使用することが可能となります。この余分な柔軟性は非常にほとんどのデジタルミュージシャンによって歓迎される!

それは、デュエット2はバランス出力とデュエット1のない不均衡な様々なものであることは注目に値する。

より高品質のオーディオ

Apogee have redesigned the preamps and AD/DA converters from the ground up and this, along with using technology from their flagship Symphony I/O system, should result in better sound quality. For those who are interested in recording audio at sample rates above 96kHz, the Duet 2 supports sample rates up to a staggering 192kHz (at 24 bit).

タッチパッド付き有機ELディスプレイ

デュエット2は、高予算のSF映画のセットに場違いに見えるだろう。同様に素晴らしい目の保養であるとして、フルカラーの高解像度OLEDディスプレイもメーター、入力と出力レベル、ミュート、位相のために視覚的なフィードバックを提供する上で有用なサービスだ。

Sitting just below the futuristic display are two configurable touch pads. These can be setup to provide a number of functions such as to mute outputs, toggle headphone source, clear the meters and more.


I love this idea as it means less time mousing around menus in software and more hands-on control without unwieldy buttons and hard to reach switches.

ブレイクアウト

It's no secret that the Breakout cable included with the Duet (v1) didn't win over everyone. Personally, I found it to be stable, secure and easy to use, but you can't please everybody! The Duet 2 has a newly designed breakout cable which looks more refined than the original.


Additionally, in Apogee have responded to customer feedback and made a Breakout Box accessory available for those who need something even more robust!

待ち時間、接続性などなど...

デュエット2はUSB 2.0バスパワーインターフェースですが、何とかApogeeは(待ち時間を減らす)、パフォーマンスを向上させるために管理している。 デュエット対デュエット2比較チャートを含むデュエット2の詳細は、、ここで見つけることができます

私はデュエット2で手に乗るのを待つことができない、といつか2011年4月のために釘付けに出荷して、私は非常に長く待つ必要はないかもしれません。あなたは2同時マイクプリ/アナログ入力と4つのバランス出力を必要とする新しいオーディオインターフェイスを考慮し、誰に私のアドバイスは?デュエット2が到着するまで待ちます。

その後、誰もが自然のままの状態で頼りになるのデュエット(バージョン1)購入に関心を持っている場合まで、私はコメント欄にコメントをドロップ!?

    Hi Sarah, No. The Apogee Duet2 is exclusively for the Mac. It will work with software like Cubase, Pro Tools, Logic, Garageband, Ableton, etc on the Mac but not PC.

  • My question is this: Will this be sufficient for creating beats/songs and recording high quality vocals over it? -Software:Logic Studios -Mic: AT2020 XlR -Duet or Duet 2(is the duet 2 worth the +$100?) -M-Audio UNO to plug keyboard into laptop -Mini keyboard (Akai MPK) My budget is around $1000 and this list adds up to about that if I buy the Duet v1.. are you serious about selling your duet? the reason i wanted to discuss via email was for that reason. Thanks, Tom

    Hi Tom, Definitely will be. The Duet (and I assume Duet 2) have very high quality - best in class - preamps and AD/DA converters. I've yet to get hands-on with a Duet 2, as it's not shipping yet... but from the specs I would go for the Duet 2. Which keyboard are you using that you need the M-Audio Uno? OK. I'll write you a quick email about the Duet 1. Thanks Rounik

  • I just realized that the keyboard above is USB powered... Is that going to effect the quality or become any bit of a problem?

    No, not at all. I use a USB MIDI Controller without any issue whatsoever. The one you've chosen is by all accounts a very capable MIDI Controller. so - no need for the M-Audio Uno! :)

  • Great! Thank you so much for all of your help. Last question.. I PROMISE! is this a trusted website? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/ the reason I ask is because their prices beat everyone else's for every product I am looking for... including Logic Studios for $100 less than the Apple Store! Once again, Thank you for all of your insight, advice and guidance. Much appreciated.

    Hey Tom, It doesn't have to be the last question ;-) Just the forums are a great place to post questions like this - just more suited and we can add pics and links easily there. Anyway, I'm based in the UK (did you get my email)... so I'm not sure about B&H. I've heard of them... but no experience with them - so I couldn't advise one way or the other. It's not unusual to find Amazon and other retailers selling Logic Studio cheaper than direct from Apple. You're very welcome to pop by the MPV forums and ask away on any question, no matter how big or small... and myself and other Audio guys will do our best to help and offer any advice we can :)
