Apogee FX Rack – Single Plug In Uninstall

Some users may be very annoyed by the Splash Screens when loading their DAW, asking to activate, if they only own some of the FX Rack Plug-Ins, but not all of them. You can remove the single Native versions of Plug-Ins you do not own, to limit the number of Splash Screens.

  • Macintosh HD > Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > Components > remove the single Plug In you don’t want to load, such as MEQ-5.component
  • Macintosh HD > Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > VST > remove the single Plug In you don’t want to load, such as MEQ-5.vst
  • Macintosh HD > Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > VST3 > remove the single Plug In you don’t want to load, such as MEQ-5.vst3
  • Macintosh HD > Library > Application Support > Avid > Audio > remove the single Plug In you don’t want to load, such as MEQ-5.aax

NOTE – If you want to keep using the DualPath DSP functions of Element/Ensemble Thunderbolt DO NOT remove the Apogee FX Rack.component/vst/vst3/aax. This is the Rack version of the Plug Ins. This Rack version is how the DualPath is able to work, by loading this single plug in on the unit’s hardware DSP based Insert slot. Thus while you can remove the Native individual plug ins, you cannot remove single plug ins within this Rack version. This does mean you will still potentially get a Splash Screen when loading your DAW. We understand this may be an annoyance to some, but was a requirement for this DSP functionality. Just click “Quit” on the Splash Screen when loading to bypass.

How do I connect headphones with my MiC or Jam original or 96k now that my iPhone has no headphone jack?

We have made a number of products, Jam/MiC/Jam96k/MiC96k, which are Input Only devices for iOS.

When Apple started removing the headphone jacks from the iPhones this created a minor issue for users who got a new iPhone, and could no longer connect headphones to monitor their input with Jam/MiC/Jam96k/MiC96k.

You can use the Apple Lightning Dock to connect both your Jam/MiC/Jam96k/MiC96k and your Headphones, to your iPhone, at the same time.

You can also look into our newer devices we made after these new iPhones came out, which now have headphones jacks built in, with Low Latency Monitoring. These are MiC Plus, Jam Plus, and now HypeMiC!

What USB cables can I use with my One/Duet/Quartet?

This is a very common question!

This article applies to these units:  One iPad/Mac/PC, One for Mac/PC (silver), Duet iPad/Mac/PC and Quartet.

Many customers think because the port on the back of these units looks “non standard” that a standard cable cannot be used.  However this is not true in all circumstances.

The port on these units is a variation on USB Mini, which adds two extra leads, the little “humps” on the narrower side.  These pass power to charge iPads and iPhones, and also carry some of the iOS Maestro connection data to the Lightning port.  Thus if you are using a regular Mac or PC computer these are not in use, so a standard USB Mini cable, like this, will work exactly the same.

You only need the “special” Apogee style port for the Apogee iOS Lightning cable, like this.  We build this cable just for these units to work on iOS, so they are proprietary.  Thus if you use a regular USB Mini cable, like above, with a Lightning Adapter it won’t work, because these leads are needed for that iOS compatibility.

In short summary:

Mac or PC full size computer = Regular USB Mini is good!

iPhone or iPad = Requires proprietary Apogee iOS cable.
