Problems Routing an SSL BUS+ In and Out of Pro Tools via an Apogee Sympony – Solved

  • by

In a recent remote technical support session I helped a client work out why they were having a problem with the routing chain for their studio outboard equipment.

This is the signal path they wanted to achieve:

  • Pro Tools plays back an audio track
  • The track’s audio is routed to Symphony I/O Outputs 7+8
  • Sympony Outputs 7+8 are connected by jack cables to the SSL Bus+ Inputs
  • SSL Bus+ Outputs connected by jack cables to Symphony I/O Inputs 7+8
  • Pro Tools records onto a new audio track

My client talked me through the chain and I had a look at their software settings using Anydesk. I found the problem within the Apogee Control app.

By default Outputs 1-8 are all set to monitor signal from Playback 1-2.

Changing the Digtal Ref value to match the Playback channels recieved from Pro Tools solved the problem. The signal path now flowed exactly as my client wanted it.
