Default New collaboration of Avid and Apogee

After a certain time of kinda estrangement between Avid and Apogee
they seem to have found together again obviously .

They seem to be official partners again and Apogee is offering
new, updated versions of the Duet and the Quartet in a bundle with Pro Tools 11.

You now even can find the Duet and the Quartet on top of the Avid hardware site.

IMO these both brands were and are a great combination, for me personally
and from my experience these are the absolute top brands particularly regarding audio quality.

I personally replaced my 003R with a Quartet 2 years ago and added a Duet later
for my mobile system and I definitely can confirm the exceptional sound quality of both
which is outstanding in their particular price range.

The driver issues I also had been experiencing for a while seem to have been solved,
I don´t have any problems anymore.
In addition I expect Apogee to bring out new drivers soon as they also have updated
both devices for the new collaboration.

Anyway the Quartet is a fantastic piece of gear in combination with Pro Tools 11,
working flawlessly here, is super stable and sounding amazingly well.
A real recommendation for the use with PT11 if there´s no need for many preamps.
On the other hand 4 very good quality mic preamps are build in, 8 further could be connected via Adat.
That´s not bad either.

The Duet is a high quality tool for small mobile applications, for mixing on the road for example.

Finally it´s good to see these both great brands work together again. Good for us users and I´m looking
forward to seeing future cool gear for the use with Pro Tools from Apogee.

All the best everyone,

cheers, VRW
