Apogee Quartet for Mac, Windows, iPad and iPhone
“Apogee’s Quartet is a great sounding interface, that enables a professional workflow in a home studio device. It’s also still quite portable, so that I have been able to set it up as the core component for an additional production and editing rig in the live room to maximize productivity while I mix. With excellent converters, a great stereo image, and an intuitive monitoring interface, I would recommend this interface to any producer or engineer. The added bonus of MIDI Connectivity means you don’t have to limit yourself to a smaller USB controller. It’s got everything I need, and both looks and sounds great.” – Jason Agel, Mixing and Recording Engineer (John Legend, Prince, Rick Ross, Estelle, Michael Bolton, Common)
“This is still a home studio, and it’s got the vibe like that, but the Quartet makes it sound as good as it can possibly sound.” – Diplo, Grammy Winning DJ, Producer, Songwriter (Major Lazer, Diplo, Usher, Santigold, Bruno Mars, M.I.A.)
“The preamps and converters in the Quartet don’t sound like a cheap circuit with the Apogee name; they have that Apogee sound. Rather than just being honest and transparent, it would be fairer to say that nothing is lost.. When capturing the subtleties of the creaks and finger drags and the little details that make an acoustic performance feel real, the preamps of the Quartet leave nothing to be desired. The same could be said about the way they record vocals. With all the breath and humanity that they preserve, the recorded performance is really true to itself… In general, the Quartet is a rock-solid music creation station. It’s serious, professional, looks fantastic and sounds even better. The features are just right, no frivolity. The iOS bonus just made it that much better.” – Mix Magazine
