Connecting and Powering the iTrack Solo

Powering the iTrack Solo

The iTrack Solo is an active device, and needs a DC power source to operate. It is important to remember that when you use the iTrack Solo with an iPad, it will not be powered from the iOS device via the interface cable.

Use the supplied USB cable to connect the iTrack Solo to a standard Apple USB Power Supply (or other standard USB power supply). One of these is supplied with every iOS device, or can be obtained separately. The front panel USB LED will illuminate when the iTrack Solo is powered and connected.

It is also important to note that when connected in this way, the iTrack Solo will not charge the iOS device’s internal battery.

Connections to your iOS device

The supplied iOS interface 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 iOS device and the iTrack Solo in both directions, but does not carry DC power in either direction (see above).
