Two Can Have a Party

Giving you a full range of recording options, the Duet features two combination microphone and instrument inputs with two mic pre-amps and the option to add Phantom Power if needed. If you’d rather experiment with electronics, the USB MIDI input and output has you covered. Once you’re all plugged in, you can easily navigate between settings and tools with the multi-function control knob, two configurable touchpads, and scratch-resistant OLED color display.

Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing

Whether you use a Mac or a PC, the Duet is fully compatible, although a PC will require using the included external power supply. It’s also compatible with most DAW software, but the included Pro Tools package should you keep you plenty occupied with over 600 virtual instruments, effects, sound-processing, utility plug-ins, and the room to add plenty more function as needed. Easy to integrate with other devices, painless to pack, and powerful enough for a professional, the Avid Pro Tools Duet turns home recording into a proper pursuit.
