The first professional multi-channel audio interface for iPad & Mac

Apogee Quartet is a professional USB audio interface designed to deliver the ultimate desktop recording experience to the iPad and Mac-based studio. Featuring 4 inputs and 8 outputs of Apogee’s industry-leading AD/DA conversion technology as well as 4 world-class mic preamps, Quartet bridges the gap between the 2-channel Apogee Duet and Apogee’s flagship interface, Symphony I/O.

A difference you will hear

From the mic preamps to the AD/DA converters and the clocking, Quartet is best-in-class and cutting-edge Apogee technology. With components carefully selected in critical listening tests and a highly efficient circuit design, Quartet was built by Apogee engineers to make a difference you can hear.

Analog & Digital Inputs

Quartet is equipped with 4 combination input connectors (XLR and 1/4”) for connecting microphones, guitars and keyboards or your favorite external mic preamps, compressors and EQs. Quartet also includes 8 channels of digital input via 2 optical connections (ADAT/SMUX) for connecting an additional analog-to-digital converter such as Apogee’s Ensemble.

Analog Outputs

Quartet’s 6 balanced 1/4” TRS outputs offer an impressive range of possibilities. Listen and compare stereo mixes on up to three sets of speakers. Mix your audio or Final Cut video project in 5.1 surround. You can also take Quartet on the road and use all three stereo sets on stage, sending signal to the performer, monitor mixer and front-of-house. Quartet also features a studio-quality 1/4” headphone output allowing you to independently adjust your headphone level separate from the main outputs.

Direct digital connection to iPad

Apogee Quartet for iPad and Mac features special circuitry that makes a direct digital connection to iPad and iOS devices and is certified by Apple’s MFi (Made for iOS) program. Apogee Quartet for iPad and Mac also charges your iPad while you record so your work will not be interrupted. Quartet provides a single USB MIDI connection for your CoreMIDI compatible keyboard, synth, or DJ controller. This eliminates the need for an external MIDI interface and promotes an all-in-one music creation solution where Quartet and Maestro manage all audio and MIDI. On iPad, Quartet’s MIDI connection allows both Quartet and a keyboard or DJ controller to be connected at the same time to the iPad’s single 30-pin/Lightning dock port.

Style Name: Audio Interface
I have owned an apogee quartet for about a year now. I bought it as I have used an apogee symphony before and it was good. I also regularly use apple hardware in my home studio. This product however is terrible. The monitor speaker outputs hiss and buzz! I have two other audio interfaces at home, no hum at all thought the analog outputs. This is replicated on other speakers in other locations. I have a 10 year old focusrite interface that I prefer to use now.

The apogee quartet does not connect to an original iPad as it purports. It does not connect to my iPhone 4s as it purports. The tech support are terse, elitist and fond of using big words to confuse, yet take no responsibility for a product that just won't work.

I have tried a power conditioner, hum buster and checking my earthing pin at home to try and fix the hum. No success. Apogee tech support recommended I lift the earth on the power cables going into my active studio monitors. That is dangerous and illegal. They seem not to care that spilling a drink or some such could cause electrocution. Even lifting the earth results only in a minor reduction in the horrible hiss. Likewise lifting the ground on the cables connecting interface to the monitors.

I thought my bad purchase could be rectified slightly if I could use this product as a portable recorder with my iPad or iPhone. Sadly this does not work. Again Apogee tech support blame me and my equipment, try to blind me with tech jargon and generally speak down to me. I have wasted some real time trying to get this product to work. Now, I can't be bothered. Things could be so simple, yet apogee fail to deliver on that. This interface has had me pulling my hair out.

I am a sound engineer with 20 years experience in audio production.

I had a problem with the package in the first time, and there was some missing cables. Then I asked Amazon to replace my Quartet, because I tought it could be some already returned unity.

After receiving the new Quartet I can only say that this is an AMAZING equipment! Just Amazing!

Everything works perfectly from the hardware through the software and its integration with Logic Pro X.

The sound quality is incredible!

Amazin' product of Apogee,after the tape im always use APOGEE for my recordings, (PSX100, Rosetta 800...) the only 2 bad things are NO TURNING OFF (or i can't find out) Switch and the front buttons they don't work like APOGEE products example the 1 botton is not working anymore... and i can't return the Quartet because is the Hearth of the Post Productions studio, the Pre amp are very clean crystal and noiseless, my DAW mixes are really more Fast and Easy than M-AUDIO or AVID interfaces ! a lot of configurations in this small but efficent Box !
