Apogee One: An all-in-ONE Swiss army knife for on-the-go Audio Production

Apogee One is the 2 I/O portable USB audio interface with all of the same studio quality, legendary Apogee features contained within the Duet and the Quartet. You can connect your guitar, microphone or use the built-in omni-directional microphone to capture those spirited first takes in quality that is good enough to use in your final mix. Recording both a guitar and microphone (external or built-in) simultaneously has never been easier. Just like the Duet and Quartet, One uses Apogee’s industry leading AD/DA conversion and mic preamp technology to produce studio grade music, vocal, podcast and voice over recordings. One, Duet and Quartet are now also compatible with Windows 10 OS allowing everyone the opportunity to experience the ultimate.

Sound Quality - The Apogee Advantage - A difference you will hear
ONE makes the legendary quality of Apogee’s mic preamps, AD/DA converters and clocking available in a portable form factor and at a great price. With components carefully selected in critical listening tests and a highly efficient circuit design, ONE was built by Apogee engineers to make a difference you can hear.

Pristine, next generation AD/DA converters
ONE’s AD/DA converters are designed to deliver the purest recordings and best listening experience possible. ONE’s efficient circuitry and state-of-the-art components provide a simplified signal path resulting in incredibly transparent recordings.

Smooth, detailed world-class mic preamps
ONE features a microphone preamp with seamless click-free transitions as the gain increases and decreases throughout the incredible gain range of 0 to 62 dB. This unprecedented feature allows you to dial in the perfect level, either with the controller knob or from within software, while delivering ultra-low noise and smooth, crisp detail. ONE’s mic pres are suitable for all dynamic, condenser or ribbon microphones, allowing you to capture any sound without compromise.

ONE is a microphone - There’s a studio quality microphone built-in to ONE
ONE features a built-in studio quality condenser microphone that makes it easy to quickly capture song ideas, vocals, podcasts and interviews. With the included mic clip you can position ONE perfectly on your microphone stand to capture any sound.

ONE is an audio interface - Connect a microphone, guitar or bass
ONE’s breakout cable lets you connect a microphone to the XLR input and an electric guitar, bass or acoustic guitar with pickup to the 1/4” instrument input. With up to two simultaneous channels of recording (instrument + built-in or external mic) and Apogee’s premium A/D conversion and mic preamp technology, you can make professional recordings anywhere with ONE.

ONE is a headphone amp and DAC - Connect headphones or powered speakers
ONE’s stereo output delivers audiophile quality sound from your Mac to your headphones or speakers. With ONE’s premium D/A conversion you will hear every subtle detail of your music like never before, allowing you to create better mixes and enjoy your iTunes library even more.

Apogee Maestro Software
Application for low latency monitoring and control of Apogee audio interfaces on Mac, PC or iOS

Access all control functions and settings with Maestro, Apogee’s comprehensive software control application. Maestro features a single window interface with quick access to all Apogee device settings. Select your input type and use the mixer for low latency monitoring. Maestro lets you easily configure your Apogee interface to fit your workflow.

Maestro is included in the ONE software installer for Mac/PC. If you’re connecting ONE to an iPhone or iPad (iOS connectivity kit sold separately), Maestro is available for free from the App store.

Logic Pro Integration
Apogee hardware control is integrated directly into Logic Pro X. If you are using an Apogee interface, you can adjust hardware input parameters directly from the Mixer view in Logic Pro X, including mic pre gain, input type selection, 48V phantom power and more. This simplified user experience helps you focus on a single session window when recording and offers comprehensive visibility and control of input parameters.

Control Apogee hardware and Logic Pro X from an iOS device
Apogee hardware input controls are also accessible through the Logic Remote App on iPhone or iPad, enabling Apogee users to wirelessly adjust their input levels and settings from anywhere in the studio. Drummers can adjust mic pres without having to get up from behind the kit, engineers can do a line check while still setting up mics, and home musicians recording themselves can switch between a microphone and directly connected instrument without having to be in front of their computers.

Alan Ashby - Musician

Recent Projects: Of Mice and Men "I love my Apogee ONE! We're constantly writing new material on tour and finding an interface that is not only compact but also durable AND delivers a great sound can be quite difficult. The Apogee ONE is the perfect solution. Plus the control knob is pretty handy!"

Zane Carney - Musician

Recent Projects: Confluence and Amalgam "I bring my Apogee ONE with me whenever I go out on tour with John Mayer, and it's helped me finish two distinctly different solo records in the process. The fact that it's so compact is an added bonus for the touring lifestyle - I would have brought this puppy in a rack unit if that's what it took!"

 

Myles Kennedy - Musician

Recent Projects: Slash, Alter Bridge

“I've been a loyal Apogee user for years. I recently discovered ONE to be the perfect solution for any artist/songwriter who wants an interface that will not slow down the creative process while on the road. Plug in the USB cable, fire up Logic or Garageband and you are ready.”

 

GoldStars
“Great product, use with garage band to record on the Ipad and you have great recording studio for up to 8 tracks. Having the option of the internal or external Mic makes it a truly portable device.”

“Just received my Apogee ONE and can’t stop playing with it. Absolutely LOVE this thing!! I own their JAM and wanted an interface with a microphone at a decent cost so leaned towards Apogee ONE. Loving the simplicity with which i can now connect it to my iPad and record.”

“I’ve been recording on my I Mac for a couple of years, first using a MOTU 8 pre, and then picking up a used first generation Apogee Duet, I instantly fell in love with the sound I was getting from the Apogee, but felt limited to my studio, since purchasing the new Apogee One for my Ipad, I can record anywhere, the sound quality, is actually better than my Duet, and what’s phenomenal about that is I’m getting this quality on my Ipad. Well done Apogee, and thanks also to Ed Needler, (my Sweetwater salesman) For hookin me up. If you buy this, you won’t regret it.”

Inside Audio - Apogee ONE Review

"We would recommend it to singer-songwriters or other artists that need to record two channels... It's a device that can be used in multiple ways perfectly on the road. Also, price-wise it’s a very interesting audio interface to have!"

 

AppleTell - Apogee ONE Review

"The Apogee ONE is a serious recording tool that’s small enough to bring anywhere. If audio quality is not something you’re willing to budge on and you want to be very portable, then this is the interface for you."

 

Tone Audio Magazine - Hi-Fi Playback and Recording on the Go

"The sound from the ONE is absolutely stunning. It has no trouble driving the headphones well beyond my comfort level, doing so with plenty of headroom to spare. The ONE has a, dare I say it, ruler-flat response. Its performance is on par with some desktop DAC/amps that are many times more expensive...With the help of the ONE, I can listen to high-quality music files from my iPad - and it sounds great. It's a no-brainer for audiophiles who travel a lot and don't want to lug around their MacBook. Not a road warrior? Not a problem. The ONE also works great as an audio engine for a clean and simple rig on your bedroom nightstand - or anywhere."
