wth?! where are my posts? 1818vsl question

Post by Foster » Tue Jul 24, 2012 8:24 pm

i know i had a post/topic/thread asking questions about the 1818vs and they have dissapeared. whats up with that?


i have a question that was answered and dissapeared. i was told that the headphone out on the 1818 wouldnt work. this i was aware of before buying it today. BUT, i was also told by rim that i could use the main outs on the vsl and also use the ipads headphone out.

i cant do this. as soon as i try to plug something into the heaphone jack on the ipad my presonus audio output is gone. this is very important to me. i may have to have someone with headphones on to record and i need to have my monitors going to..well...monitor. so i need them both to work at the same time. normally they would just plug into the presonus headphone out but as we all know it does not work.

am i missing something?

We posted an explanation for all the moved posts in the first sticky. Sorry about that. We moved all the bug reports into the bug reports thread. Nothing got deleted, just moved ;)

if you moved entire posts then they seem to be way out of order.

can you just please tell me if it is possible to use the headphone jack from the ipad and 1/2 outputs from the presonus at the same time?

Yes, it's definitely possible to use outs 1&2 of the presonus and use the iPad headphone output at the same time. The two are separate streams and don't affect each other.

Any posts related to a bug got moved into the bug thread, so it's possible that the order got reset... We're still figuring out the best way to organize the forum.

Ok, so how do I do it? As soon as I plug my headphones in to the ipad the output to the 1818vsl goes out.

I just tried this, and it looks like this actually isn't possible in iOS5... I take back by previous answer, sorry...

Crap. In the original thread I started you said it could. That's one of the reasons I bought it. Darn it.

Do you know if that goes for all units? Like the focusrite?

Do you have any others you can try?

It's a limitation in the iPad itself. With iOS 5, only one audio device can play at a time. I misspoke, as I tried it on an iPad that wasn't running iOS5.

I am under NDA, so I can't talk about what iOS6 will be able to do, but Auria will fully support all it's great capabilities.

I am guessing then that is all interfaces then that do things this way. At least for now ;-)

Is this true? All interfaces?

Yes, all USB interfaces work the same way in this regard on an iPad, and not just in Auria, but in all iPad music apps. It's a limitation in iOS5.

RE 1818 headphone monitoring. If it is helpful, I have found that both the main outs and outputs 1and 2 are active. this means you can feed monitors from main out and a headphone amp from out 1 and 2. This has added advantage of giving you front panel level control of your monitors

Ian I know this but I am trying to avoid having to use extra pieces of gear. And I am actually using one send to my mains and the other for subwoofer in my studio. I don't have any throughs with my mains or sub so I need both. Eventually

I hope some interface manufacturers are reading these posts, as it would be great if someone came out with the ideal iPad interface. Right now, we've got some good options, but there are some definite limitations.
