Why can’t I use my Apogee Duet or Quartet with Windows?

Apogee’s primary objective is to provide our customers with outstanding products and unparalleled customer support. Because Apogee is a relatively small company with limited resources, we’ve made the conscious decision to focus the full attention of our efforts on developing for Apple Mac OSX and iOS platforms.

What does the color of the LED on JAM indicate?

It’s easy to tell if JAM is connected properly by the status LED on the top panel. If it’s green, you are ready to rock and the light becomes your input level indicator. If it turns red, you are rocking too hard and you need to turn your gain down with the control knob.


Jam status and level meters

  • Blue – JAM is connected but not ready
  • Green – JAM is connected, ready and working with your software
  • Red – your level is too high.

My unit isn’t working. What do I do?

The first step is to always make sure to register your product. Please be sure to check our Knowledge Base to verify that you have connected your Apogee product correctly. In many cases, Apogee Customers report being able to solve their support problem by simply using Apogee Knowledge Base.

If you are still experiencing problems, contact our Expert Customer Support Team by submitting a support ticket at, or via live chat Mon-Fri 8am – 6pm PST. They will walk you through the necessary troubleshooting steps. If it is determined that your unit is in need of repair or replacement, the customer service team member will issue you an RMA Number (Return Merchandise Authorization Number).

Registering your product via our website and opening a support ticket will allow our team to assist you in the most efficient and effective way.

I bought my unit less than 30 days ago from an Authorized Apogee Reseller and I’m experiencing issues, what do I do?

If issues arise within 30 days of purchasing your Apogee product, we recommend you contact the reseller you purchased your unit from for a refund, credit or exchange depending on your reseller’s policy. If you choose to return your unit to the reseller yourself, it will not be necessary to receive an RMA number from Apogee. Feel free to contact Apogee for technical assistance with your Apogee Gear.

What is an RMA or RMA Number?

An RMA Number, or Return Merchandise Authorization number, will be assigned to you and your product once our tech services team has determined that your product needs to be sent in for servicing. All products sent to Apogee for servicing – regardless of whether or not the product is under warranty – require an RMA number. Without an RMA number, shipments will be refused and returned to the sender at their own expense. Before sending your product to Apogee, you must receive confirmation that the status of your RMA is complete.

I have my RMA Number… is my product ready to be shipped?

Your product is not ready to be shipped until the status of your RMA is Complete. Once you receive an email from Apogee with instructions in where and how to ship it, your RMA is complete and ready to be received by us.

DO NOT SHIP if you haven’t received the RMA email with shipping instructions. If you have not received this email, your RMA status is Incomplete and it’s likely that there is missing information. Incomplete RMA’s will automatically be returned to sender by our receiving department. You can check the status of your RMA by contacting Apogee Tech Support via online live chat Mon-Fri 8am – 6pm PST, or by sending an email to

Once your RMA is complete, you must mark your RMA Number clearly on the outside of the shipping box for return to Apogee. This helps our receiving department to quickly determine the nature of the shipment and expedite it to Tech Services.
