Aurender App Guide 


Installation and Set Up

To set up the Aurender Music Server and remote App, please follow the instructions below:

1. Connect the Aurender to the following:

A power outlet using the AC power cord that came in the box. Make sure that the voltage marked on the rear panel matches the local voltage.

A wireless router with Internet connection, using an Ethernet (LAN) cable.

A digital-to-analog converter, or an amplifier with digital inputs using an appropriate digital cable.

2. From the iPad, go to the App Store and type Aurender in the search window.
Install the Aurender iPad application.

3. Open the Aurender application and the name of the Aurender Music Server will be shown in the Aurender tab of the iPad App Settings menu.

(Aurender must be on and connected to the Internet and iPad through the network)

  

  

4. Press the name of the Aurender Music Server and a pop-up window will ask for a Passcode.
The Passcode will be shown on the Aurender Music Server's front AMOLED display.
Enter the Passcode.

  

  

5. In the Settings menu, go to the Upgrade tab and press the "Check for the latest version" to make sure the latest software versions are installed.

6. After upgrading, the Aurender Music Server will automatically reboot. After rebooting, close the Aurender App and then restart it.

  

  

7. Time and language can be set to the iPad settings by pressing the "Set Aurender to iPad Time and Language" button located at the bottom of the Aurender tab.

  

  

8. To transfer files to the Aurender Music Server, please refer to the section on Transferring Music.
Transferring terabytes of audio files can take a very long time. It is highly recommended that it be divided into smaller batches.

9. Scan for newly added files using the Scanner menu.

   

  

 

Scanning will continue in the background, even when songs are selected and played. Please note that it can take a long time to scan large libraries.

10. After scanning is done, a pop up window will appear stating that the database is being downloaded. If the download fails to finish or gets stuck, please move closer to the wireless router and press Update song database. The time to download the database varies according to song database size and wireless connection speed between the wireless router and the iPad. It can be a few seconds or a few minutes. Note : Now, when files are added, deleted, or moved, the Aurender will automatically scan and update the song database. Scanning will start one minute after no more files are added, deleted, or moved.

Transferring Music

There are two ways to copy files to the Aurender's HDD. One is to use a computer connected to the Aurender Music Player via the Ethernet (LAN) connection. Another is to connect a USB memory device to the USB port on the rear panel.

Note: After song files are copied to the Aurender Music Player, the newly added songs or changes can only be seen after hard drive is scanned and the song database is uploaded to the iPad. This happens automatically a couple of minutes after the last changes to the hard drive. To see changes immediately, press the "Upload song information database" button in the Scanner menu located in Settings of the Aurender App. Depending on the size of the database, this can take a few second to about one minute.

PC Users

1. Open Network Connections and look for the Aurender Music Player.

2. Double click the Aurender Music Player and folders named "hdd1″ and 'hdd2' will appear.
Double-click this folder and you will be asked for the Username and Password. These can be found in Settings in the NAS Share section.

3. After entering the Username and Password, use your mouse to drag and copy files to the
folders on hard disk drive.

4. On the hard drive, folders may be created, named, or deleted.
To make a folder, right click on an empty space and click NEW-> Folder. The names for five folders on the hard drive will be shown in the second row buttons between ALL and MISC. If you have more than five folders on a hard drive, place square brackets around the folder names that you want - [My Music].

  

If the Aurender music server does not appear in Network Connections, input the Aurender IP address manually as follows:

1. Press the Windows + R on your keyboard (START -> RUN).

  

2. Type in two back slashes (\\) and the IP address of the Aurender music server.
(For example: \\192.168.1.171). The Aurender IP address can be found in NAS under SETTINGS on the iPad application.

3. Click OK and a window will appear with folders labeled 'hdd1'and 'hdd2'. Open the folder.

4. A popup window will ask for a Username and Password. They can be found in NAS under SETTINGS in the iPad application.

5. Drag and drop files in to hdd1'and 'hdd2', or sub-folders.

  

6. On the hard drive, folders may be created, named, or deleted.
To make a folder, right click on an empty space and click NEW-> Folder. The names for five folders on the hard drive will be shown in the second row buttons between ALL and MISC. If you have more than five folders on a hard drive, place square brackets around the folder names that you want - [My Music].

Note: Importing large libraries at once can take a very long time. We recommend importing files in batches.

  

Mac Users

1. Locate the Finder menu bar at the top of your desktop.

2. Click GO -> CONNECT TO SERVER from the navigation bar.

  

  

3. Type in 'smb://' followed by your Aurender's IP address.
(For example: smb://192.168.1.171) The IP address can be found under SETTINGS -> NAS.

  

  

4. Click Connect and a window will appear with folders labeled hdd1'and 'hdd2'.
Open the folder.

5. A popup window will ask for a Username and Password.
They can be found in the iPad application under SETTINGS -> NAS.

Note: If the Aurender is connected through a Gigabit network, the transfer speed will be roughly 50MB/sec. It could take 5-6 hours to copy 1TB of files. We recommend copying files in batches. The Aurender is able to playback music and copy files at the same time.

  

USB Memory Device  

Begining with Aurender System Software 4(5).3.130 USB copying for playback from a USB drive can be activated from the "Disk Information" tab in "Settings" in the Aurender Conductor App. Users can play files directly from an attached USB storage device (one device only) or copy the content into the Aurender's internal storage drive by selecting the command "Copy".   

  

If you wish to copy file content from an external drive into a specific folder you’ve created on the  Aurender internal HDD, you need to import using the same file structure employed on the Aurender.

  
For example, if you have a folder named "Music1/Rock/Eric Clapton/24 Nights" on your internal HDD and you want to copy another Eric Clapton album, “Clapton” from an external drive, then the folder structure on that drive should look like this: "Rock/Eric Clapton/Clapton”. After copying the album into the Aurender, the internal HDD file structure will look like: "Music1/Rock/Eric Clapton/Clapton”.
