기능 미리보기 : 최고점 듀엣 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

에서 흥미로운 하드웨어 공지 사항 최근 슬루로 최고점 (잼 마이크) 당신은 크리스마스가 일찍왔다 그런 생각을 용서받을 수 있습니다! 그런 그들의 최신 제품 발표, 추가 듀엣이 내 옆에있는 휴대용 오디오 인터페이스, 내 기대가 일어났습니다.

나는 지난 3 년 동안 필드에있는 스튜디오에서 밖으로 모두 내 선호하는 오디오 인터페이스되어 최고점의 듀엣 (버전 1)의 자랑 소유자. 그것은 이미 뛰어난 음질, 두 입력 및 출력, 로직, 사운드 트랙 프로, Mainstage 및 GarageBand 내에서 오른쪽에서 세련된, 섹시한 디자인과 아주 쉽게 제어할 수 있습니다.

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

더 많은 출력

듀엣 2 지금은 별도의 믹스를 모니터하거나 라이브를 재생할 때 집 앞에서하는 드럼 또는 하위 섞어 클릭 트랙을 보내 DJ의를 위해 더 적합해야 4 아날로그 출력이 있습니다. 스튜디오에서 이것은 모니터의 두 쌍을 사용할 수있게합니다. 이 여분의 유연성이 매우 대부분의 디지털 뮤지션으로 환영합니다!

그것은 듀엣 2 균형 출력과 듀엣 1이 아니라 불균형 다양한와 함께 제공되는 지적 가치.

더 나은 오디오 품질

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).

터치 패드와 OLED 디스플레이

듀엣 2는 높은 예산 공상 과학 영화 세트 여길 보이지 않는 것입니다. 뿐만 아니라 훌륭한 눈요기 것으로, 전체 컬러 고해상도 OLED 디스플레이도 측광, 입력 및 출력 레벨, 음소거 및 위상에 대한 시각적인 피드백을 제공하는 유용한 또한 같다.

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.

브레이크 아웃

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!

지연, 연결성 및 기타 ...

듀엣 2 USB 2.0 버스 전원 인터페이스이지만, 어떻게든 최고점은 (대기 시간을 감소)의 성능을 향상시키기 위해 관리합니다. 듀엣 대 듀엣이 비교 차트를 포함하여 듀엣 2 더 자세한 정보는 여기에서 찾을 수 있습니다 .

나는 듀엣 2 손으로 탈 위해 기다릴 수 없어, 그리고 언젠가는 2011년 4월에 대한 불렀고 운송과 함께, 난 아주 오래 기다릴 필요하지 않을 수도 있습니다. 당신이 동시 마이크 사전 / 아날로그 입력과 4 균형 출력을 필요로 새로운 오디오 인터페이스를 고려하여 다른 사람에게 조언? 듀엣 2 도착할 때까지 기다립니다.

사람이 깨끗한 상태 믿음직한 듀엣 (버전 1) 구입에 관심이있다면 그때까지는 아래 나에게 코멘트를 드롭!?

    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 :)
