FYI, Charles announced over the weekend, on Facebook, that they are going to have a half price sale on Audio Ape and Media Monkey during the Covid-19 situation. Sale prices are reflected on their website.

I just happened to stumble upon Audio Ape due to devising my new programme.

Fingers crossed that you'll be able to help me with this one: I had been considering to order MediaStar Pro by Live Show Control (and before that by ProMystic) but now Audio Ape looks more appealing to me.

I'm planning on connecting Audio Ape with the Amazing Amp Pro by Empower Sound (via Audio Ape's DI box) and an iPad storing all the tracks I need for my performances.

Would I be correct in assuming that Audio Ape and the Audio Ape app mentioned on their website will work as a stand-alone solution for the music being played during my act or do I need both Media Monkey and Audio Ape if I'd like this system to work?

My apologies if for you pros out there this sounds like a pretty silly question. I've been a semi-professional so far who intends to go pro and honestly, I haven't been able to figure it out from what I read on their website. My bad.

So much looking forward to your responses. Many thanks in advance and stay healthy everybody.

You are correct the Audio Ape and free Audio Ape app work as a stand alone solution for music playing. The Media Monkey adds additional operations that are not possible with the Audio Ape Remote alone:
· Video playback
· Lighting control
· Live cameras
· Microphones
· Music playback

Wow, that was quick. Most appreciated, Michael.

Looks like to start with Audio Ape and go for Media Monkey at a later point in time to bring my stage presence to perfection. Controlling a video playback and stage lighting sounds more than interesting.

Again, many thanks for getting back to me so swiftly. I'll definitely consider using Audio Ape and purchasing it during the current sale.

If you think you might want the functions of the Media Monkey later, you might consider purchasing it now instead of the Audio Ape. You can use it to do the same things as the Audio Ape does and, when you're ready, you can use it for the video playback and stage lighting. It's more expensive but the price is still quite low on sale.

Thanks, all. If you buy Media Monkey, doesn't it include Audio Ape and get you both at once? I agree, not entirely clear to me on the site. Although that might just be because I'm missing something. Thanks!

No, the Media Monkey is a separate device. It does the same thing as the Audio Ape plus the additional functions I listed above. The Audio Ape controls music with an app on an iOS device.

That's good news indeed, Michael. Thanks ever so much. I then consider purchasing Media Monkey.

Do I need a DI box for Media Monkey, as it seems I don't - as opposed to Audio Ape ...

Hey Michael, sorry to ask more, but you do seem like a great resource for answers Smile In addition to Michael.Kegel's question above.... would the Media Monkey be ABLE to use an iOS to also control music? Thank you, sir!

The Audio Ape doesn't require a DI box unless you want to run a long distance from the Audio Ape to your sound system. In other words, the Audio Ape has a 3.5mm (1/8") output to connect from it to your sound system. If your sound system has a 3.5mm (1/8") input, you connect it directly. For smaller shows, where my sound system is nearby, I connect this Audio Ape this way. When I'm in larger performing areas and my PA is further away from me, I use 3.5mm cable to connect the Audio Ape to DI box and then an XLR cable to run to my PA system.

The Media Monkey connect directly to a computer using a USB cable. You connect your computer to your PA system, etc.

Sounds just perfect. Thanks a million and all the best, Michael!

According to the information on their website (I have never used a Media Monkey), it comes with an adapter to connect it to your iOS device to control music.

From their FAQs:

"Media Monkey can also work with iOS using our included adapter.
You can use our show app Audio Ape, or you can use other recommended iOS apps."
