How To Connect Mackie ProFX10v3 to iPad
Time needed: 5 minutes
Follow the steps below
- Connect Audio Mixer to iPad
If you have a lightning port, you will need the Apple Lightning Camera Adapter
If you have a USB-C port, you can just connect a USB B to USB C cable to your iPad. You may need to use the multipart adapter from Apple if you want to charge your iPad at the same time.
We only recommend the official adapters from Apple
- Open Garageband
- Turn Mackie ProFX10v3 Audio Mixer On
- Garageband will ask if you want monitoring
Generally, you’ll want to say “turn on monitoring”, this will allow you to use headphones plugged into your audio mixer.
- Set Your Microphone Gain
We don’t recommend using compression, eq, etc. if you’re recording. This will give you the cleanest recording and more options in post-production.
- Hit Record
And create your recording!
Some people have left comments on our video saying that this hasn’t worked for them. After restarting their iPad and their audio mixer, everything started working again.
