The appogee duet will only be helpful on the audio that's recorded deriectly into, that can take advantage of its converters ...such as vocals, keyboards, guitars, etc. Vitual instruments and midi thats not plugged into it, wont be effected. The duet is a great interface and I have one. What ever is plugged into it and recorded, will sound crystal clear. So, if you record a live acoustic guitar through a condenser mic, plugged into the duet, it will sound amazing. It won't make a difference on vst and AU sounds because these sounds won't be plugged into the duet. It won't help the overall mix unless sources were patched to the duet.
Thanks Rodney.I defnitely needed to hear that.
This interface has been out for quite some time.Will Apogee contunue it's support during OS changes in future?The firewire interface has already been discontinued I guess.

Apogee have supported OS changes for quite a number of years, so I wouldn't think you need have any worries on that score. It was a bit of a surprise that they decided to go USB for the Mk.2 but I haven't heard of anyone complaining about it in practice. I'd say its worth paying a bit extra for quality gear.
