I tried to upgrade to the newer Apogee Duet but was having so many issues with it muting on and off for no reason at all. I went back and forth with Apogee but they could not resolve the issue so I had to return it. However this older interface has never failed me. It feels indestructible. I have had it for several years now with absolutely no issues. I also like that it is compatible with the break out cable box. Great audio interface for small home studios and extremely portable.
I got this interface and the quality of my recordings became better almost overnight. Holy crap. The pre's are very nice and it's such an easy interface to use.
Super portable, and it looks nice too. That's a plus.
2 channels is enough for me, I do have to plug and unplug things in all the time, but that's how I like to work. I recently got an analog mixer with 8 channels, and I still find myself patching and unpatching frequently only using the first few channels.
My mics sound great through it, guitar di sounds great through it, and my keyboards and synths sound great through it.
Could not be happier with this interface. It's a bit outdated, but so isn't all my stuff.
I don't really need an interface until I get some studio monitors and I don't plan on buying some for a while. I guess any interface would do but i'd like something simple, small and fairly cheap. This would do I guess.
