Greetings fellow traveler! In this article we discuss how to set up your Mobius as your Playback Engine within Pro Tools. Before we proceed, please make sure that you have already installed Pro Tools and all relevant drivers.
For Mac Users:
- First, launch your “Audio Midi Setup” utility and enable “Pro Tools Aggregate I/O” as your Sound Output device.
- Then, check the “Use” box corresponding to your “Audeze Mobius 3D 8Ch” device. If your Mobius is connected over BT, it will be listed as “Audeze Mobius 3D BT 2;” if your Mobius is connected over Aux, then you will need to select “Built-in Output.” Once you have enabled Mobius, please disable all other devices within the “Pro Tools Aggregate I/O” device.
NOTE: Your Mobius will be identified as two separate devices, one for input and one for output. Please make sure that you select the output device, not the input device, when performing this step. When connected over USB, the output device will have the number 8 listed in the “Out” column. When connected over BT or Aux, the output device will have the number 2 listed in the “Out” column.
- Once your “Pro Tools Aggregate I/O” device has been properly configured, close the “Audio Midi Setup” utility and launch Pro Tools. Go to Setup > Playback Engine, then select “Pro Tools Aggregate I/O” within the “Playback Engine” dropdown menu. Once this is done, select “OK.”
NOTE: If you get an error message reading “Could not complete your request because Pro Tools could not set sample rate to specified value,” please temporarily change your “Playback Engine” to “Built-in Output,” then relaunch your project. Once the project has loaded, you may set your “Playback Engine” back to “Pro Tools Aggregate I/O” and allow the project to restart.
