Hi Quin:

I just found your podcast and am seriously considering going the Logic/Apogee route that you recommend over the common Adobe Audition / mixer technique that other podcast consultants are recommending. My questions to you:
1) The other podcast consultants talk about a mixer + limiter + gate + compressor hardware. If I go with an Apogee Duet 2 or Ensemble, would I still need a limiter + gate + compressor hardware?
2) Or, I notice that your Logic workflow video shows that you have a limiter + noise gate + compressor + EQ (in the aqua blue color). Are the limiter + noise gate + compressor + EQ built into the Logic software?
3) Assume I want to bring in a Skype call and use the SoundByte cart software at the same time. With an Apogee setup, how would I do this?

Thank you for your content.

No worries.  When you buy the Logic Pro software you’ll get all the plugins necessary to master and produce a professional quality product.  The software includes a limiter gate, compressor, EQ and tons more goodies.  Trust me… you’ll never run out of options with Logic.   
If you’re going to bring in a Skype call AND use SoundByte for an audio cart you’ll need to look at the Ensemble.  The Duet only offers 2 channels. 
So with the Ensemble all you’ll need to do is take each input i.e. Skype, Sound Byte, and your voice and plug them into the unit.  That’s it.
