    One Two - Apogee One for iPad & Mac Review

    11/19/13

    When it came out four years ago, the Apogee One delighted us in several ways. Elegant and compact, it established itself as one of the best audio Swiss knives to use with a MacBook to do some music or a podcast while traveling light. But even if it exhibited undeniable qualities, the bellissima was not without defects.

    03/09/13

    A little more than one year ago, we reviewed the Duet 2, the second generation of Apogee's mobile USB audio interface with two mic inputs.

    Be Forte! - Focusrite Forte Review

    12/16/12
