Avid has announced the introduction of Pro Tools | Duet and Pro Tools | Quartet, two new professional music creation solutions in the Avid Artist Suite, combining the industry standard Avid Pro Tools software with best-in-class audio interfaces by Apogee.

With Apogee as a new I/O Connectivity Partner for the Avid MediaCentral Platform, the companies are bringing music creators the same tight integration between Pro Tools | Software and Apogee interfaces as they would have with any Avid audio interface – delivering the openness and flexibility that are key tenets of Avid Everywhere™.

Avid Pro Tools | Duet and Pro Tools | Quartet provide everything needed for professional music creation, enabling customers to turn their Mac or PC into a high-performance yet portable music and audio production studio. With more than 60 AAX virtual instruments, effects, sound-processing, and utility plug-ins for Pro Tools | Software, combined with ultra-compact, best-in-class USB audio interfaces from Apogee, Pro Tools | Duet and Pro Tools | Quartet deliver the creative tools and sound quality to create the best mixes possible. EUCON-enabled Pro Tools I/O Control Software enables users to control the interfaces using any Artist Series controller, or a Mac or PC.

“We are very excited to be working with Avid as an I/O Connectivity Partner,” said Betty Bennett, Apogee CEO and Co-Founder. “Our two paths have been intertwined since the early days of the digital recording revolution. While Pro Tools | Software was first defining an exciting paradigm shift in our industry, we were perfecting AD/DA conversion and hardware technology for digital audio. Today we are proud to be able to come together and offer customers these two truly amazing solutions.”

Pro Tools | Duet and Pro Tools | Quartet are now available for purchase for $1,099 USD and $1,899 USD respectively.
