Please go through these steps to ensure that everything is set up properly:

 

 

Setting up ONE’s inputs:

 

Internal Mic

 

To use ONE’s built-in internal mic, launch ‘Apogee Maestro’ from your Applications folder, go to the ‘Input’ tab and click on the ‘Analog Level’ drop-down menu for Input 1 and set it for  ‘Int Mic’.

Gradually bring the input level in Maestro up until you get a good level from your input source. Make sure the meter isn’t going into the red.

 

 

External Mics

 

Connect your Mic using only an XLR cable (no 1/4″ adapters or cables) to the XLR input 1 of ONE’s breakout cable.

Launch ‘Apogee Maestro’ from your Applications folder, go to the ‘Input’ tab and click on the ‘Analog Level’ drop-down menu for Input 1 and set it to ‘Ext Mic’.

If you’re using a condenser mic that requires phantom power, choose ‘Ext Mic 48v’.

Gradually bring the input level in Maestro up until you get a good level from your input source. Make sure the meter isn’t going into the red.

 

 

Guitars, Basses, Keyboards, Hi-Z Mics that have 1/4″ cables, such as harmonica mics:

 

Connect your Instrument using only a 1/4″ instrument cable to the 1/4″  input 2 of ONE’s breakout cable.

Launch ‘Apogee Maestro’ from your Applications folder, go to the ‘Input’ tab.

Gradually bring the input level in Maestro up until you get a good level from your input source. Make sure the meter isn’t going into the red.

 

 

Setting up ONE’s outputs:

 

Using ONE with DAW or audio playback software:

– Launch ‘Apogee Maestro’ from your Applications folder, go to the ‘Output’ tab and set the  output to ‘Out 1-2’ (the drop-down menus under the software output knob)

– Confirm that the mute button isn’t engaged in Maestro’s output tab.

 

 

Using ONE without any software- input directly to output:

 

– Launch ‘Apogee Maestro’ from your Applications folder, go to the ‘Output’ tab and set the output to ‘Mixer’ (the drop-down menus under the software output knob)

– Confirm that the mute button isn’t engaged in Maestro’s output tab.
