How to use the Maestro low-latency mixer with the ONE for iPad & Mac

Maestro Low Latency Mixing

While recording, if you notice a delay between the moment you play or sing a note and when you hear it in your headphones you are experiencing latency. With Maestro’s low latency mixer, you can set up a signal path to hear yourself with minimal latency.
How to set up a session using the Low Latency Mixer

For Mac

1.    In your audio software, turn off software monitoring.

• In GarageBand, this is done by clicking on the Monitoring button in the Track.

GarageBand input monitoring

 

• In Logic’s menu bar, choose Logic Pro > Preferences > Audio and uncheck the Software Monitoring checkbox.

2.    In your audio software, set up a mix of all playback tracks and route the mix to Out 1-2. It’s suggested to set the audio software Master fader to 0 dB.

3.    In the Maestro Output tab window, set the Output Selection to Mixer. This sends the output of Maestro’s low latency mixer to ONE’s output, rather than sending your audio software’s output directly to ONE’s output.


4.    In the Maestro Mixer tab window, set the Input, Software Return and Mixer Master faders to 0. Output from your audio software should now be displayed in the Software Return meters and audible at ONE’s output.

5.    After configuring ONE’s inputs, the input signal should be displayed in the Mixer Input meters and audible at ONE’s output.

6.    Use the Mixer’s Input and Software Return faders to establish a balance between the input and playback signals. If you’ve found a good balance but the Mixer Master’s Over indicators light, reduce the Mixer Master fader.

 

For iOS:

  1. Setup your recording software as usual and make sure software monitoring is turned off
  2. Open the iOS Maestro app (download via iOS App Store) and navigate to the OUTPUT tab. Set the Output Selection to Mixer. This sends the output of Maestro’s low latency mixer to ONE’s output, rather than sending your audio software’s output directly to ONE’s output. 
  3. In the Maestro Mixer tab window, set the Input, Software Return and Mixer Master faders to 0. Output from your audio software should now be displayed in the Software Return meters and audible at ONE’s output.
  4. After configuring ONE’s inputs, the input signal should be displayed in the Mixer Input meters and audible at ONE’s output.
  5. Use the Mixer’s Input and Software Return faders to establish a balance between the input and playback signals. If you’ve found a good balance but the Mixer Master’s Over indicators light, reduce the Mixer Master fader. 

For Windows

In Windows, all controls are on the same page:

  • A: Set appropriate Analog Level (Int Mic, Ext Mic, and Ext Mic 48v)
  • B: Set appropriate Gain level for Inputs
  • C: Change source to Main to Mixer 1 to monitor audio from Mixer 1
  • D: Use volume knob to adjust volume to your Main outputs
  • E: In Mixer 1, use volume faders to adjust volume going to Mixer 1 Master
  • F: Use panning to pan Inputs 1 & 2 

How do I find the Maestro software on your website?

The Apogee Maestro 2 software is not on the Apogee website as a separate file. Instead, it is installed with the software package for your Apogee interface.

For example, if you download and install the Duet for iPad & Mac software, Maestro 2 will automatically be installed and placed in your Applications folder.

This is true for any Apogee interface software. You can find the appropriate software for your Apogee interface by going to the support section of our website:

The iOS cable won’t stay connected to my iPhone or iPad

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.
