How to connect Audio Ape Pro to your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

Here we show you how to connect your Audio Ape Pro to an Apple iOS device like iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch.

To connect a Lighting iOS device to the Audio Ape Pro you will need an Apple Certified iOS Lightning to USB adapter. You can get one by clicking here.

If you are using the newer iOS devices that have a USB C port instead of a lightning port, you do not need this adapter. Instead just use the included USB C to USB C cable.

Your SD card comes pre-formatted. If you want to use a different SD card you will need to format it. 

On the touch screen click button “SD Card” then “Format” and “Proceed”

All music files must be in WAV format using sample rate 44100Hz and be in 16 bit (not 32 bit or 8 bit)

Create playlists by adding folders to the root folder on your SD card named “Playlists”.

In the picture below we created a playlist named “SD Player Test”.  

The structure of your file and folder locations must be the same as what is pictured below. 

Set the order that your tracks playback, by using a number at the beginning of the music file name. 

All music files must first have a number in the track title for them to be recognized by the player. 

If the track doesn't doesn't have a number the track will be ignored.

If you are having trouble still, then make sure the SD card is fully seated into the slot on the Audio Ape Pro receiver.

Alternately you can download the test files that are formatted 100% correctly and fully tested by clicking the "Download Test Files" button below.

Using MIDI with QLab.

QLab is the most powerful Live show software to control your performances.

It's made by the industry leaders in software show control Figure 53.

We are thrilled to offer MIDI controls to control QLab.

Note, volume control cannot be controlled using  MIDI commands. Therefore we use keyboard commands (vol up and down) to control the overall system volume.

Something to be aware of is when sending keyboard commands to control your OS X system volume. You will have to use the control panel in OS X to specify the sound output you want to control the volume of.

For example, if you are using the Audio Ape Pro's headphone output, you will have to select that output where the blue arrow is pictured.
