Am I correct in believing that the 'One' effectively has a two channel output and a one channel input?

i.e. two channels, one for Left and one for Right stereo output for either monitors or headphones?

AND the one channel only for a mic or instrument input? OR can you use both the input connector for an instrument like a guitar and the Apogee One's built in Mic at the same time? (effectively two audio channels being input into the Mac)




Shame there's no separate connectors for monitors & headphones, I imagine there will be a lot of continuous plugging and unplugging between monitors and headphones.

    Output is stereo via a standard 1/8" (3.5mm) headphone jack (aka "stereo mini-jack"). This can be connected to a pair of headphones or powered speakers. You could use a Y-cable (or similar adapter) to connect two outputs, but the "ONE" will still see it as a single audio output.

    The "ONE" supports three audio inputs, but you can use only one at any given time.

    -built-in mic

    -external mic via the XLR jack on the breakout cable (the "ONE" includes an excellent pre-amp, and provides phantom power if required by the mic)

    -guitar or other instrument or other "line in" audio input via the 1/4" (6.3mm) female Hi-Z TRS jack on the breakout cable

    You can choose the audio input both through the Maestro software, and with the silver control knob on the device itself.

  • ONE is great tool for singer songwriters. I have Duet which has seperate stereo out and headphone out. I have monitors, and sometimes I need to monitor through headphones. Duet is great for that.

    ONE is a single channel input. XLR, 1/4", and an internal mic that sounds incredible.
    It is a stereo output.
