Hi Will0z,


I understand that you are experiencing some audio lag and high CPU percentage when using your GarageBand app and connecting your headphones to your iPad Pro.


I would first check to see if there are any available updates for iPad Pro: Update the iOS software on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch


If your iPad Pro is up to date, try force closing the app and try a different app while the headphones are in use: Force an app to close on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch


Thanks for posting your question. Let me know if this resolves the issue.


Have a nice day.

Turn off any app..... Ok

I tried to use a fly mode..... But the problem start when I plug the head phone jack... I suppose 1) start a no optimizated service around audio out .... 2) driver problem 3) hardware problem. Some times sound with big latency problem.

OK. So they're just analog headphones (nice ones too). I don't understand how they can be working differently than the iPad speakers.

Now, your iPad has 4 speakers, the headphones only stereo. Is there a setting in GB or the iOS settings to do only stereo output? I wonder if GB is generating 4 channels and it has to be downmixed for the headphones. Look around and see what you can find.

If you quit apps you're not using this returns memory back to the iPad for your other active audio apps.

If you turn off Wifi, you can keep iPad from searching for WiFi signals while you are using your audio apps.

Also, turning off Background App Refresh makes sure no background running apps are trying to update their content while still working behind the scenes.


I work with audio apps all the time on my iPad Pro.

The only things you want running on your iPad when doing audio work is JUST your audio apps and mobile external audio interfaces, if any.

You DO NOT want any other unnecessary apps running in the background that aren't audio releated and turning off WiFi, if you don't need it during audio work, eliiminates, yet, another active iOS process.

Which kind of iPad pro have you? Neck use I used iPad pro 1 9.7 and all work right. Now I have 10.5.

I can't understand why same things work good without plug headphone. When I insert jack in audio out, after few minutes, latency go to hight and iPad became unusable .....

I use a powered USB hub 2 keyboards and focus rite solo (1gen) an all ok.

If I use garageband with audio out jack plugged and play a note with sound after half second .....🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

Dear sterling,

All things is right... Turn off all application .... Turn off update in back ground .... I rebooted ipad....

Put in fly mode....

Only thing left me in doubt.... I plug akg k240 or another headphone.... GB cubasis latency hight.... Unplug ... Return all ok.....

Another thing.... If I use headphone with microphone (Samsung s7 head phone) no latency .....

Is it possible that iPad detect hifi headphones and start a service like eq ... Volume control... Or another one which put audio system in over flow?

Probably I could explain better in Italian language ....😊

I hope I explained right my problem in English

Tnx

Will

Hi. Please use Italian if you like; we have Google Translate. But I think your explanation is clear.


You said it's OK using headphones with a mic attached, but not with the high quality phones. I wonder if GB is trying to access the missing mic input. Can you turn the mic input off in GB?

Hi,

Probably system are looking for at mic in but it may be low level system..... I tried to turn off in system but I found only cubasis and no GB...

In any case with headphone latency persist... With mic off.

Are there someone with iPad 10.5 who can try and tell me if have the same problem or no.... Because it s new hardware and probably driver not work correct.... But I need a test... 😊😊

I have the exact same issue. iPad Pro 10.5", wifi model. Brand new. All audio apps affected. Mighty frustrating? Since music is 100% of my focus right now.

Clearly a bug.


My only guess is that it might have to do with the new 120fps software hardware tech. It's like the audio buffer slowly gets filled up and out of sync. Getting unbearable in just minutes. In all music apps. Even Apple's GarageBand.


Apple perhaps hasn't had widespread enough field testing before going live with this feature. I hope Apple can solve it behind the scenes, not forcing all audio app developers to update. And they better solve it right now! This is the perfect musician's iPad. Can't have latency issue there.


Today's update did not solve it.

Hi cuckoomusic. Is your problem only with headphones, like the OP's?

Do the speakers work fine?

How about ordinary earbuds that include a mic input?


If the speakers are OK, that should excuse any buffering issue.


You should certainly report this to Apple at this link: Feedback - iPad - Apple.

I'd like to know if this problem you have in any condition.... With speaker ..... Or with plug out put. Becouse if (I think) we have same problem I suppose a driver or software problem in the other case .... A lot of problem around sound card.... I could think about hardware problem...

Next time look a synonymous of "problem" in the dictionary 🤔🤔🤔 I promise !
