Powering the iTrack Solo
The iTrack Solo needs a power source to operate. When you use the iTrack Solo with an iPad, it will not be powered from the iPad via the Device-Link cable.
Use the supplied USB cable to connect the iTrack Solo to a standard Apple USB Power Supply (or other standard USB power supply).
The Apple USB power supply is supplied with every iOS device or can be bought separately.
You can press the 48V button to check if the iTrack Solo has power - a red light should illuminate. The front panel USB LED will illuminate when the iTrack Solo is powered and connected to your iPad.
Note: When when connected in this way, the iTrack Solo will not charge the iPad's internal battery.
iOS Device Connections
The supplied iPad Device Link cable should be connected between the DEVICE LINK port on the rear of the iTrack Solo and your iPad. This cable will carry the audio between the recording app on your iPad and the iTrack Solo in both directions.
For USB-C iPad Pro please see this article
Connecting to a Mac or Windows Computer.
Connect the supplied USB cable between the iTrack Solo and your computer. This will power the iTrack Solo and carry the audio data.
Note: when connecting to a Mac or PC via USB, the Device Link cable must be disconnected in order for your computer to see the iTrack.
Windows: When using the iTrack Solo with Windows PC, you will need to install the audio driver from here.
Mac: You do not need to install a driver when using the iTrack Solo with a Mac as it is a class-compliant device and uses the Mac's built-in Core Audio driver.
