One/Duet/Quartet – *PARTIALLY COMPATIBLE
Basic functions of our larger USB units work. This would be audio playback, some audio input, & output level control. (Note that ONE & Duet do not need the external power supply connected because the USB-C port provides bus power just like on a Mac!)
However these units are unable to connect to the Apogee Maestro iOS app, and thus are unable to access the Input Settings like Gain and Phantom Power or Output Routing, low-latency mixers, and Volume.
iPad does not get charged when a ONE, Duet, or Quartet are plugged in to AC power.
In some cases you may have to power down iPad, connect Duet or Quartet and power back up for them to be usable (ONE behaves differently, see below)
Quartet: offers the best partial compatibility
Duet: decent partial compatibility
- Able to adjust inputs gain with front panel knob.
- Other input & various settings must be changed with it connected to a Mac computer or Lightning iPad/iPhone first. Then you can connect to the USB-C iPad Pro and settings should carry over.
ONE: is the least compatible
- Inputs do not register in any app.
- Output control, playback, streaming from iTunes or other music apps works.
Please be aware this may not work in all cases or on all applications. There is lots of variability and things can change with each Apple iOS release or audio app update.
Note: The Anker USB-C to Lightning Audio Adapter is not a workaround
