Logic/Mackie Control & Logic 9 - "Save As" Bug

Logic/Mackie Control & Logic 9 - "Save As" Bug

Postby bex » Sat Feb 06, 2010 7:17 am

Hi everyone,

I have recently received an original non Pro Mackie Control Universal and it is working fine with Logic 9.1 except for a slightly odd behaviour with the SAVE and CANCEL buttons and I wonder if anybody else is experiencing this exact issue and has a fix?

What happens is that if I press SHIFT-CMD-S then the 'Save As..' dialog box appears and the MCU shows 'Save - Advanced Options' on the blue screen, 'SAVE' on the LED, the Vpots let me change the save parameters and the ENTER button lets me confirm the save and the CANCEL button lets me cancel out of the dialog box, much as you would expect.

Now the issue I have is that if I press OPTION-SAVE on the MCU itself, the same 'Save As..' dialog box appears, the same display appears in both the Blue and the red displays, but none of the controls of the MCU respond any more?

Pressing the CANCEL button does nothing at this stage but the press is remembered in memory. The only way to close/use the dialog box is to use the keyboard or Mouse. However if I then SHIFT-CMD-S directly after pressing the CANCEL button on the MCU, it cancels straight out of the dialog box as though it has saved the press in memory.

Seems mighty strange to me that the same command should make the unit act a different way depending on where that command came from.

Has anyone else experienced this or can suggest a solution?

thanks all!

oh in case it has any bearing - The MCU is connected via the MIDI port on a Focusrite Saffire Pro 10 I/0 via firewire. cheers

Confirmed. Logic 9.0.2. I may try later booting the LC's in Logic Control mode as opposed to Mackie Control mode and see if the behaviour is fixed, but I kind of doubt it.

Thanks Fader8,

It's good to know it's a quirk of the setup and not something I could fix by changing key commands.

Hopefully a fix will be forthcoming, but it's not the hardest thing to work around!

all best

Logic/Mackie Control & Logic 9 - "Save As" Bug

Hey, Gentlemen,

I too can confirm this quirk. Quirk because the first time I hit the SHIFT-CMD-S I got the weird behaviour.
Then I tried restarting Logic and the MCU and after playing around a bit I hit SHIFT-CMD-S. I didn't get the weird behaviour. I tried this four more times each time trying different combinations of logic operations. I tried it with SHIFT-CMD-Save on the MCU also. It seems pretty normal.... or maybe it's just biding its' time...patiently waiting for the opportune moment.... damn gremlins.
