Apogee, a company specializing in digital recording technology, has announced the first professional multi-channel audio interface for iPad & Mac, the Quartet.Priced at a pocket-burning $1295 (968 EUR), Apogee Quartet is a USB audio interface for professional musicians looking to achieve the ultimate desktop recording experience, including on the iPad.
The solution reportedly turns your Apple gear into a full-fledged studio with 4 inputs and 8 outputs of Apogee’s AD/DA conversion technology, as well as 4 mic preamps.
“Quartet bridges the gap between the 2-channel Apogee Duet and Apogee’s flagship interface, Symphony I/O,” says the developer.
A MIDI I/O connector allows users to connect and power a Core MID compatible keyboard/controller while using Duet.
“Quartet for iPad and Mac features special circuitry designed to deliver professional performance for iPad use along with low latency USB 2.0 performance for Mac,” says Apogee.
An iOS compatibility update will be available later this month, according to the company.
