Apogee announces Quartet
Apogee (no, not the video game company) has just announced the Quartet, which is touted to be the ultimate desktop audio interface and control center for Mac machines. The Quartet is ready to be shipped around the world, where it will boast of a quartet of inputs, eight different outputs, MIDI support, a top panel display and control, which more or less lets Quartet set a totally new standard when it comes to performance and connectivity for the modern studio.
Sporting more than enough input and output connections, the signature single controller knob, QuickTouch pads, and Apogee’s conversion technology, you can be sure that the Quartet does not disappoint, delivering where it counts the most in terms of sound, functionality and usability.
You will be able to hook up the Quartet to just about any Mac via USB 2.0 high-speed for extremely low-latency and stellar performance. It does not matter if you are rocking to a MacBook Air or a far beefier MacBook Pro, the Quartet will be able to connect a whole lot more easily at amazingly high-speeds regardless of the machine or sample rate; 44.1-192kHz.
Thanks to the Quartet’s four combination inputs that deliver microphone, instrument and line input alongside an exceptional gain range of up to 75 dB, you are left with a whole lot of headroom for demanding microphones and sound sources. Not only that, if you need additional channels, Quartet’s eight digital inputs will be able to deliver the option of hooking up an external interface, similar to the Apogee Ensemble.
Apogee CEO and Co-Founder Betty Bennett, said, “We are excited to announce Quartet. Quartet offers a highly requested I/O configuration, award-winning sound and sleek design, all at an affordable price. We have listened to our customers and have designed Quartet with their requests in mind. At Apogee, we are all about delivering the absolutely best in sound, design and functionality and believe Quartet is a winner on every front.”
