What We Think

An incredible partnership between two industry titans! The Avid Pro Tools Duet provides you the same world-class conversion quality and outstanding preamp technology we've come to love in the Apogee Duet, but now for the first time ever, the duet is capable of running on your PC based system as well any Mac system! Packaged with the incredibly powerful Pro Tools 11 recording software featuring game changing 64-bit architechture, you'll have the ability to record, edit, mix & master your tracks with the power and flexibility of a pro studio. 

We'd be happy to provide you with our top recommendations for best-in-class microphone and monitoring compliments to help your recordings reach their fullest potential, so please don't hesitate to give us a ring to talk more about this exciting new interface package!
