DIGITAL.

Important for iOS Devices
Wrong chosen audio source can reduce the
recording quality.
The last connected microphone will be used as the
audio source. If you are using your headset for input
monitoring, you might record unintentionally via the
headset microphone. To avoid this:
USB port
Connect your headphone or headset to your iOS
device first before connecting the HANDMIC DIGITAL
to the Lightning port.
Ensure that the apps detect the HANDMIC DIGITAL as
the last connected microphone.
By default, you will not hear the HANDMIC DIGITAL until input
monitoring is enabled in an app.

Meaning
HANDMIC DIGITAL´s recording by using any Core Audio,
video app or recording software.
Red
Streaming audio: HANDMIC DIGITAL is
connected to an iOS device and a recording
app is receiving the audio stream
regardless of whether recording has been
started or not.
Off
Low power mode: HANDMIC DIGITAL is
connected to an iOS device but no
recording app is active, no audio
streaming.
Make sure that the recording app supports external
microphones.
Important
HANDMIC DIGITAL‘s input gain can be controlled by
either Apogee‘s Maestro App or any recording app that
supports Core Audio input control.
Apogee‘s Meta Recorder App* allows you to record
audio and control your HANDMIC DIGITAL.
For advanced recording adjustments (e.g. rumble
reducer, hiss reducer, overload eliminator and available
updates) but no recording itself use Apogee‘s Maestro
App.*
* Both apps install from Apple‘s App Store or
www.apogeedigital.com.
