Setup Jam with Avid Pro Tools

Because JAM does not have an audio output it must be included in an aggregate device that combines multiple sources to create one audio device.

To set up JAM to work with Pro Tools do the following:

1) Connect JAM to your Mac using the included USB cable.

2) Open Audio MIDI Setup located in the Utilities folder on your Mac.
