    Generic Controller like in Cubase?
    Hi all! :) I am using my MPD32 with OS X leopard and Logic 8. Everything works fine regarding the pads, but I do have a little question regarding the rotary encoders on the MPD. Because these are endless encoders (360°) I take it they are suitable for total recall with a DAW like Cubase or Logic? In cubase I could add a generic controller and specify the in- and outputs for the MPD, so cubase could send parameter updates to the MPD. Now in Logic, I understand I can let Logic associate an encoder knob with a Logic parameter by using the learn (cmd+L) mode in the software. However, when I change the value of this parameter with my mouse, the rotary knob has no notice of this. Therefore when I turn the know after updating the parameter with my mouse, the knob will let the value jump back to what HE thinks is still on screen. Is there any way I can let Logic share it's parameter values to the associated knobs on my MPD midi controller?

    Hi BenB08, Welcome to the macProVideo forums! I'm not familiar with the MPD32, but have you tried setting it up as a control surface? Logic Pro > Preference > Control Surface > Setup... Cheers Rounik

    Thanks for your answer! :) I tried it but while scanning Logic says no control surfaces are found, and when it suggests to add one manually the MPD32 does not appear in the list..

    Hi Ben, hmmm... I'd love to have a MPD32 to test this out on ;-) In the meantime, check out the: LC Xmu environment. This is a Logic/Mackie Control emulation and management for generic controllers. Wonder if it might help? Rounik
