STEP 2:  Download Apogee Maestro iOS in App Store

On your iOS Device open the App Store and search "Apogee Maestro".  Download this App and open it to use to control parameters of Quartet.


STEP 3:  Check your firmware version in Maestro iOS, as shown here.


If you have a USB-C iPad/iPhone:

Currently we cannot make the Quartet have Maestro control on USB-C iPad/iPhones, due to lack of certain control parameters in the previous MFi Specification.

Quartet users still have control of many parameters without Maestro, via the front touch panel on the Quartet.

For more information see this article.

Before using Quartet with a USB-C iPad/iPhone make sure it has been updated to the latest firmware:

  1. Using a compatible MacOS or Windows 10 computer, download Quartet Installer here.
  2. Run installer and use Quartet USB Firmware Updater included in Download.
