The Software Control Panel
The Software Control Panel lets you adjust settings such as input gain, monitor mix levels,
and output volume.
Accessing the Control Panel
Mac OS X
The Software Control Panel can be found in System Preferences, under “Other.”
Windows
Double-click the M-Audio logo
located in the
system tray, generally located at the bottom
right of your Windows desktop.
Levels Tab (All Systems)
Input Gain This slider controls the level coming
from the microphone. If the Pro Tools SE input
meters are showing red, lower the input gain
level.
Monitor Mix This slider controls the signal level
from the input that is sent directly to the output
of Producer USB, and has no effect on what is actually recorded. The signal is mixed with the
output from Pro Tools SE and allows you to hear
the input signal before any software audio processing takes place.
This monitoring method, called “Direct Monitoring” or “Hardware Monitoring,” prevents undesirable delays (latency) common when monitoring your input signal through Pro Tools SE.
When monitoring your input using the Monitor
Mix Control, click the Mute button on the
Pro Tools SE track you are recording on. This
stops the track from outputting the signal being
recorded, and prevents “double-monitoring,”
that causes undesired “phasing” or echo.
Output Volume This slider controls the level of
the output signal from Pro Tools to the Producer
USB integrated 1/8-inch headphone/line output.

Latency Tab (Windows)
Mac OS X
In Mac OS X, the buffer size is adjusted within
Pro Tools SE by choosing the File Menu > Preferences to open the Preferences dialog, then
choose the Audio page. This lets you choose one
of the two radio buttons in the lower half of the
dialog.
Refer to the Pro Tools SE User Guide for
more information about setting the buffer
size and other important settings when configuring Pro Tools SE.
Producer USB Control Panel, Latency Tab
Latency is the time it takes for an input signal to
pass through your recording software and appear at the outputs. This latency can result in a
delay when overdubbing to existing tracks.
About Tab (All Systems)
This slider lets you adjust the buffer size in units
of samples. The default buffer size is 256 samples.
Smaller buffer sizes result in lower latency, but
may cause clicks, pops and dropouts on slower
systems. If you are experiencing clicks and pops
in your recording, try increasing the buffer size.
To adjust the buffer size in Pro Tools SE,
choose File > Preferences to open the Preferences dialog, then choose the Audio page.
This lets you choose one of the two radio
buttons in the lower half of the dialog.
Refer to the Pro Tools SE User Guide for
more information about setting the buffer
size and other important settings when configuring Pro Tools SE.

the track is in the red.
Placing a pop filter between the microphone

by reducing the impact of sibilance and plosives during a vocal performance.
Raising or lowering the Track fader will not
affect the input level, as it only controls the
track playback volume.
