The Apogee Electronics ONE combines a 2x2 USB audio interface with high-grade converters and a built-in microphone in an ultracompact, elegant, and rugged chassis, giving podcasters, songwriters, musicians, and narrators award-winning sound quality, incomparable portability, and intuitive operability.
With the ONE, no external microphone is needed; convenient and quality recordings can be achieved with the built-in omnidirectional condenser microphone, which is housed in a specially tuned enclosure. If you need to track an external mic or an electric guitar/bass, use the included breakout cable to access the balanced XLR input and a 1/4" Hi-Z instrument input.
The transparent onboard mic preamps provide 48V phantom power, low-noise performance, and up to 62 dB of gain, more than enough boost to hit optimal recording levels with sensitive condenser mics or lower-output dynamic mics such as the Shure SM7B. The ONE can accept two inputs simultaneously—the instrument signal and either mic signal (internal or external)—for handling multisource sessions.
A single 3.5mm mini-jack output on the front of the ONE allows connection to headphones or powered speakers, whichever you prefer to monitor through. The large encoder knob provides user-friendly adjustments to the input level, output volume, and function selection. Additionally, 3-segment LED meters keep you informed of your I/O levels.
The ONE's size makes it very travel-friendly, and when fitted with the included microphone stand mount, it becomes the ultimate portable recording solution for quickly capturing musical ideas, recording high-quality demos, rehearsals, podcasts, lectures, interviews, voiceovers, and more.
Being bus powered via USB, the ONE requires no power adapter when used with a computer. It includes a mini-USB to USB Type-A cable for connection to your Mac/Windows computer, and adapter cables are available separately for connecting to iOS mobile devices. An optional power supply is required for use with smartphones and tablets.

The balanced XLR and unbalanced 1/4" connections are accessible via the included breakout cable. No breakout cable is needed to plug your headphones or powered speaker system into the ONE's 3.5mm stereo mini-jack output. Direct monitoring ensures that you can record without being plagued by latency in your monitor mix. You can even use the ONE as a premium DAC for listening to your music library with audiophile conversion quality.
