Logic Pro X is compatible either with generic Mackie Control Universal (MCU) units or with the more suitable Logic Control protocol, an extension of MCU, specifically customized for the Logic’s functionalities.
- Establish a connection from your iPad to your Mac (see MIDI Connection Setup)
- In ONE Control, add a new controller by tapping the Plus button on the top leading corner of the main screen
- In the Mackie Control section, select Logic Pro X
- Logic Pro X should instantly recognize ONE Control as a Logic Control surface.
Setup a Mackie Control XT emulation
You configure you controller to act as a Mackie Control XT (extender) instead of the default mode (main unit). Doing so, you can use your iPad to extend a real Mackie hardware, or even use multiple iPad to setup a 16 (or even more) channels console.
How to configure the controller
- Create and open a new Mackie Control controller for your DAW
- Tap on Edit and then Settings
- In the Mackie Control Mode section select the channel range you want the XT controller to cover
- Close and reopen the controller
- Configure your connection and your DAW accordingly
ONE Control is not recognized
- In Logic Pro X, open the Control Surfaces window, accessible from the Logic Pro X menu. If you don’t see the menu, you need to activate “Show Advanced Tools” from Settings
- In the Control Surfaces window, check that Install automatically is active
- In ONE Control, return to the main screen the reopen the Logic Pro X controller
ONE Control is recognized but the main LCD is empty or using ONE Control produces unexpected results
Is very important that you have a single instance of Logic Control configured in Logic Pro X. If more than one instance is installed, Logic is unable to correctly send the proper messages to ONE Control.
- In Logic, open the Control Surfaces window, accessible from the Logic Pro X menu. If you don’t see the menu, you need to activate “Show Advanced Tools” from Settings
- Double check that you have only one instance of Logic Control in the list of surfaces available
- If more than one Logic Control surface is visible, delete (key backspace) the superfluous ones or delete all of them and repeat the connection procedure
