The Many Ways To Use Your Audio Ape Pro

Windows, Linux or Mac


Connect- Just plug Audio Ape Pro receiver into any USB or USB C port of any laptop or desktop or connected USB hub. Audio Ape Pro draws very little power, so you can run with or without wall power to your computer.

Control- Once Audio Ape Pro is connected we are detected by your laptop as a USB Keyboard and we can send keystrokes triggered by our long range handheld remote. These keystrokes can be used to interact with many different apps like Zoom, Keynote and Prezi. We simultaneously show up as a MIDI device. MIDI commands are similar, but superior to using Keyboard commands. MIDI is the recommended control method for pro apps like QLab and SCS.

Audio- Lastly, we show up as a sound output device which allows you to the option to route audio from your computer to the HQ built-in headphone jack on Audio Ape Pro.

Standalone Music Player


If you want to run just your show music without the need for a laptop, Android or iPad? Then use Audio Ape Pro's built-in show music playback system.

Plug the Audio Ape Pro to any USB power plug or battery bank and we jump right into the stand-alone music player. Your music comes out of the HQ headphone jack onboard the Audio Ape Pro receiver. We can Play, Pause, FF, RW and fade and stop your music as well as control volume. All using the high powered handheld remote.

You can use any Micro SD memory card and load as many playlists and tracks as your Micro SD storage size allows. The included 8GB Micro SD card can store an average of over 1500 music tracks.
