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.

• 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.
