NOTE: In order to hear audio from Producer USB, you MUST connect your headphones, powered speakers, mixer or stereo system to the 1/8-inch headphone jack on the front of Producer USB. Sound will NOT come out of your laptop or computer speakers while Producer USB is connected to your computer.
The Software Control Panel
The Producer USB Software Control Panel lets you adjust settings such as input gain, monitor mix levels, and output volume. The Control Panel is divided into separate pages, each accessible by clicking on the corresponding tab. To open the Producer USB Software Control Panel: Windows XP/Vista users: A small M-Audio logo appears in the system tray, generally located at the bottom of your Windows desktop. Double-click this icon to open the Control Panel. Mac OS X users: The Producer USB Control Panel can be found in System Preferences, under "Other." NOTE: The Software Control Panel is available only after the Producer USB driver software has been installed. It will not appear if Producer USB is being used as a class compliant device (this means using the device with the drivers already built into the computers operating system). Also note that the Producer USB driver software must be installed and the device connected in order for Pro Tools M-Powered Essential to function.
Levels Tab (All Systems)
1. Input Gain Control - This slider controls the level coming from the microphone. If the input meters on your audio software are showing red, lower the input gain level. Monitor Mix Control - This slider controls the level of signal from the microphone that is sent directly to the mic's integrated 1/8-inch monitor output. This signal is blended with the output signal from your audio software. This monitoring method (called "Hardware Monitoring" or "Direct Monitoring") lets you listen to your input signal before any
When monitoring your input using the Monitor Mix Control, make sure that your audio software is not outputting signal from the track you are currently recording. This would cause "double-monitoring," resulting in an undesired "phasing" or "slap-back" echo. Consult the documentation for your audio application regarding disabling software monitoring. The Monitor Mix Control has no effect on what is actually recorded in your audio software. 3. Output Volume Control - This slider controls the level of output signal from your audio software.
Latency Tab (Windows XP and Vista)
The term "latency" refers to the time it takes for signals from the microphone to pass through your audio software and appear at the output of Producer USB. This latency can result in a delay that is undesirable when overdubbing to existing tracks. The slider lets you select the size of the buffer in samples. Smaller buffer sizes result in lower latency, but may not function well with slower systems, causing clicks, pops and dropouts in the audio playback. The default buffer size is 256 samples. If you are experiencing clicks and pops in your audio, try increasing the buffer size. On Macintosh systems, the buffer size is normally adjusted within your audio recording software. NOTE: This setting cannot be modified while a recording application is running.
Sample Rate Tab (Windows Vista Only)
This page allows you to choose a sample rate of 44.1kHz or 48kHz. This is provided in order for MME applications in Windows Vista to have access to both of the supported sample rates. ASIO and WDM applications let you change the sample rate within the recording software, regardless of the setting on this tab.
About Tab (All Systems)
This page contains information on your hardware and current driver software versions. This information may be helpful should you ever have the occasion to call for technical support. Clicking the links on this page will take you to useful pages on the M-Audio website.
software audio processing takes place, thereby preventing undesirable delays (latency) common when monitoring your input signal through your software. Adjust this slider until you have achieved the desired balance between microphone signal and playback levels.
Audio Software Configuration
The included Pro Tools M-Powered Essential software automatically selects and configures M-Audio Producer USB for audio recording. If you are planning to use a 3rd-party recording software, you will need to select M-Audio Producer USB as the audio input and output device for the software and its tracks. Please refer to the documentation for your recording software for more information.
Recording with Producer USB
1. 2. 3. On the Levels tab of the Software Control Panel, turn the Input Gain Control all the way down. (It should be all the way down by default.) In your recording software, select M-Audio Producer USB as the input source for a new track. While speaking, singing, or playing a musical instrument into the Producer USB microphone (at the loudest level you expect to occur during your recording,) slowly turn up the Input Gain slider until the red clip indicator begins to illuminate in your recording software. Then, turn the Input Gain slider down until your recording softwares clip indicator no longer illuminates. At this point, you should be ready to record with the optimum gain setting. Note: Placing a pop filter (available from most music equipment retailers) between the microphone and a vocalist can improve recording quality by reducing the impact of sibilance and plosives during a vocal performance.

you want to open the song in a Pro Tools session click Choose. Whether you click Audition Preview or the play button in the open demo session, you will hear the song playing in your headphones.
Before auditioning or playing the demo song, open the Software Control as described in Chapter 3, The Software Control Paneland turn the Output Volume all the way down, then raise it to a suitable level once the song is playing.
If you do not hear anything, check your hardware connections, and check your signal levels as explained in Chapter 3, The Software Control Panel then repeat step 4.
The Software Control Panel
The Software Control Panel lets you adjust settings such as input gain, monitor mix levels, and output volume. 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.
Accessing the Control Panel
The Software Control Panel can be found in System Preferences, under Other.
