IPL Studio C Users Guide

Macintosh: Getting Started

All audio signals from the Macintosh are routed into the the Yamaha DM1000 digital mixer via an optical line out card. You will need to make sure system preferences on the mac are set to the right output, and also that the mixer has the right settings.


Start by getting any kind of a audio signal playing from the mac (I go with pandora or itunes).

Now Look at the mixer. Try selecting Layer Channels 17-32, and raise the first two channel sliders. If that doesn’t work, read on...


Press the “Scene” Button on the bottom right of the Scene Access Section. From there make sure that “05 MAC PRO PLAYBACK” is selected. If not, use the scroll wheel to select this preset, and either press “enter” near the scroll wheel, or “recall” in the “scene memory” section in the bottom right corner near the screen.

Next, Select Layer “17-32”, and raise channels one and two on the mixer sliders.


You should now be hearing sound. Please refer to “Troubleshooting Sound” if you are not.


The MacPro in Studio C has two displays for your use in addition to the main screen.

To activate the Samsung Flatscreen, use the Remote Control on the desk to power it up. This display is really good for video editing. It should automatically load.


The Wacom Tablet. Power on using the button on top of the screen. This screen Is a touchscreen table for use with the associate pen. This is really useful for repetictive tasks, like drawing patches in isadora. It too should automatically load as a display.

As a default, tapping with the pen is a click, holding the pen to the surface is dragging. The two buttons on the pen act as double click and right-click, recpectively.

To edit functionality for the pen, visit Apple Preferences => “Wacom Tablet”

If either of these are not working, please refer to “Toubleshooting Visuals”.

Make sure to power off the displays before leaving the room.

Note: Sometimes, when the displays are off, the computer will still recognize them as operational, and it will allow the mouse to move thorugh to them. This can result in “losing the mouse”. There is nothing in the bottom left of the main screen, so drag the mouse down and to the left to try to find it again.
