I’ve had my Apogee Duet 2 for about a year now, but it was until recently that I really had the chance to test out its abilities as a preamp for tracking multiple instruments and layering them together in a DAW. That said – here are my thoughts on this amazing little device:
The Duet 2, for those of you who haven’t had the chance to use one, is a two line in four line out box with one button on it – that uses a set of breakout cables to handle the ins and outs. Kind of like an iPad or iPhone: it’s incredibly minimal. One big knob that functions as a controller for a variety of purposes – from switching between sources, to controlling the volume – it’s a very intuitive design.
