The graphic below shows what all of the different LED colors on the Apogee MiC mean. You can apply this same information to MiC, MiC 96k, JAM, and JAM 96k.
Monitoring and recording is interrupted in Apple GarageBand and other Audio Apps from the ONE for iPad & Mac, Duet for iPad & Mac, Quartet, JAM, JAM96k, MiC, or MiC96k when a call is received. Once the call has ended or declined monitoring and recording is resumed.
Unless calls are more important than creativity? It is recommended that in the iPhone> Settings Do Not Disturb is turned On. This will prevent a call from interrupting that perfect take or inspired performance.
If you have a case on your iPhone or iPad, it may be obstructing the iOS connector from being inserted into the jack all the way. Please remove the case or cover to verify if this is the cause.
If you do not have a case or cover on your iPhone or iPad and the cable won’t stay connected, then there may be a problem with the iPhone or iPad, the Apogee product, or the cable. Please contact the Apogee Support Department to further troubleshoot the issue.
Though the documentation that came with your JAM or MiC refers to a complete User’s Guide, it does not exist. We apologize for any confusion this misprint may have caused.
Instead of a User’s Guide, we provide our JAM and MiC customers assistance through videos, Knowledge Base articles, as well as through support tickets & chats through our website: www.apogeedigital.com/support.
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.
If you are not able to get input in to Auria, follow these steps:
– On your iDevice, go to ‘Settings’.
– In the Settings page, go to ‘Privacy’.
– Select ‘Microphone’.
– Find Auria in the list and enable the switch next to it.
No. Though it’s possible to use iOS compatible Apogee interfaces with apps on the iphone, the interfaces cannot be used with the phone call function. The iPhone’s phone call function can only use the built-in iphone microphone, or the microphone on a headset plugged into the iPhone’s headphone jack.
If you can’t hear your input signal when using the Garageband app on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch, then you will need to enable the Monitor feature of the app. This feature is located in the Input Settings menu as shown in this video:
This setting is especially important for guitar players as using Garageband’s Monitor feature enables you to hear the guitar effects built into the program. Because of this fact, this method is much preferred over utilizing the hardware monitoring feature of the Maestro app.
The direct-coupled design of USB and Firewire audio interfaces can be susceptible to grounding anomalies that are difficult to discern. This can manifest in a variety of audible ways including hum, artifacts, and noises which can modulate with activity from the mouse, hard drive, wireless network, printer activity, or other functions of the computer.
One way to begin troubleshooting is to monitor the outputs of the audio interface with headphones. If the noise isn’t audible then it’s likely that a grounding issue exists.
If you look at the components of a computer based recording system, grounding noise can emanate from a multitude of sources. A few examples of these sources include:
A grounding problem could also be caused by the power, AC circuits, and power plugs of the room, or even the building you are in.
To troubleshoot the issue you’ll want to systematically remove, add or replace components in the system until the device (or devices) introducing the grounding issue has been discovered.
If you have questions, are unable to resolve this or any issue contact Apogee Support for assistance.
