फ़ीचर पूर्वावलोकन: Apogee युगल 2

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  

(जैम और माइक) से रोमांचक हार्डवेयर घोषणाओं के हाल ही निहत साथ Apogee आप यह सोच कर कि क्रिसमस जल्दी आ गया है के लिए माफ किया जा सकता है! कि करने के लिए जोड़ें, उनकी नवीनतम उत्पाद की घोषणा, 2 युगल मेरी अगली पोर्टेबल ऑडियो अंतरफलक के लिए, और मेरी अपेक्षाओं को उठाया गया है .

मैं एक Apogee (संस्करण 1) युगल है, जो दोनों स्टूडियो में और बाहर अपने पसंदीदा ऑडियो अंतरफलक क्षेत्र में पिछले तीन वर्षों के लिए किया गया है के गर्व मालिक हूँ. यह पहले से ही उत्कृष्ट ध्वनि की गुणवत्ता, दो निविष्टियाँ और outputs, एक चिकना, सेक्सी और तर्क, ध्वनि Pro, Mainstage और GarageBand के भीतर सही से सुपर आसान नियंत्रण डिजाइन प्रदान करता है.

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

अधिक Outputs

युगल 2 4 अनुरूप outputs है यह अधिक है डीजे उपयुक्त पृथक घोला जा सकता मॉनिटर या एक ड्रमर अथवा सदन के फ्रंट के एक मिश्रण उप क्लिक ट्रैक भेज जब जीना खेल बनाना चाहिए है. स्टूडियो में यह तुम पर नज़र रखता है के दो जोड़े का उपयोग करने के लिए सक्षम होगा. इस अतिरिक्त लचीलापन बहुत सबसे डिजिटल संगीतकारों द्वारा स्वागत किया जाएगा!

यह ध्यान देने योग्य बात है कि 2 युगल संतुलित outputs और एक युगल के असंतुलित विविधता नहीं के साथ आता है लायक है.

बेहतर ऑडियो गुणवत्ता

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).

टच पैड के साथ OLED प्रदर्शन

युगल 2 के बाहर एक उच्च बजट फिल्म विज्ञान-Fi सेट पर जगह नहीं देखो. के रूप में अच्छी तरह से महान आँख कैंडी जा रहा है के रूप में, पूरे रंग हाय-Res OLED प्रदर्शन पैमाइश इनपुट और आउटपुट के स्तर, म्यूट और भी चरण के लिए दृश्य प्रतिक्रिया प्रदान करने में एक उपयोगी इसके अतिरिक्त की तरह लग रहा है.

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.


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!

लेटेंसी कनेक्टिविटी, और अधिक ...

हालांकि दो युगल एक यूएसबी 2.0 बस संचालित इंटरफेस है, किसी भी तरह Apogee प्रदर्शन में सुधार (विलंबता कमी) में कामयाब रहे हैं. 2 युगल पर एक युगल बनाम युगल 2 तुलना चार्ट सहित विवरण, यहां पाया जा सकता है .

मैं 2 युगल के साथ हाथ पर इंतजार नहीं है, और अप्रैल 2011 में कुछ समय के लिए आंकी शिपिंग के साथ, मैं बहुत लंबे समय से इंतजार की जरूरत नहीं है हो सकता है सकते हैं. एक नए ऑडियो अंतरफलक है जहाँ आप की आवश्यकता होती है 2 युगपत mic पूर्व / अनुरूप निविष्टियाँ और 4 संतुलित outputs के विचार किसी को मेरी सलाह है? रुको जब तक 2 युगल आता है.

तब तक अगर किसी प्राचीन हालत में एक भरोसेमंद युगल (संस्करण 1) खरीदने में रुचि रखता है मुझे नीचे एक टिप्पणी ड्रॉप!?

Will this run on windows 7?

Rounik Sethi
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.
I'm very interested in your Duet v1.. I have a few questions regarding duet and audio interfaces in general and you seem very knowledgeable.. please email me at the address that i have listed below.
Rounik Sethi
Hi Tom,

Please feel free to ask any questions here in these comments or even better you can start a new thread on our forums:

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.
Rounik Sethi
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.

this is the keyboard I am looking to purchase... http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-Address&q=mini+midi+keyboard&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&wrapid=tlif130201724412010&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=17533989842456050907&sa=X&ei=6DSbTaOfDoOEtgfLgpDIBw&ved=0CDMQ8gIwAA#
I just realized that the keyboard above is USB powered... Is that going to effect the quality or become any bit of a problem?
Rounik Sethi
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?
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.
Rounik Sethi
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 :)
Hey Tom,
I started working with Logic & Got ahead of the book..How can I get back into the book & start again?
Rounik Sethi
Hi Bobbye,

Not sure I understand your question. Is it related to Tom's questions above?

Anyone have any experience using this with Avid Media Composer?
