Re: External Instrument plugin not showing any external devices

It would be interesting to have a definitive answer from Apple.

Re: External Instrument plugin not showing any external devices

Sorry, I think I misunderstood your answer. I know that I can create an external MIDI track, and indeed that is how most of my existing concerts are set up. Having discovered the External Instrument Plugin in Logic, however, I wish to do the same in MainStage. Can you verify whether, if you insert a...

External Instrument plugin not showing any external devices

In Logic I can control an external MIDI instrument by using the External Instrument "Utility Instrument" plugin. When opened it has a list of all connected USB MIDI devices. It is much more convenient to use this method than to individually configure outputs in Logic as it handles MMC Play...

Re: Recording dropouts with 3.5 (maybe plus Catalina)? Topic is solved

I too am on 3.5.1 and I confirm it's now mono and I am still hearing (and seeing, when viewing the waveform in Adobe Audition) dropouts. Worst of both worlds.

"PDF Page" inserted as mapping instead of bypass Topic is solved

I have tried this with two different control surfaces now, with the same result. I have two Channel Strips assigned to the same volume fader in - in this case - a Korg NanoControl 2. I wish to switch between them. Previously I would add a second mapping for the button, map both mappings to Mute at t...

Good to know.

It's also good to see MainStage getting some TLC and attention from Apple after a long span of what felt like stagnation.

Re: Recording dropouts with 3.5 (maybe plus Catalina)? Topic is solved

I considered it too but as long as I have a workaround with Audio Hijack I am not in a hurry to downgrade. Are we sure any Concerts created in 3.5 will load in 3.4.4?

Recording dropouts with 3.5 (maybe plus Catalina)? Topic is solved

Since upgrading, the day of a gig [1] to both MainStage 3.5 and Catalina, I find that when I use MS's native Record function, I now have many audio drop-outs in the recording of complex Concerts where previously I had none. Same Concerts, same computer, same lack of external CPU load. The interestin...

Re: Transpose of a single MIDI track down by a fifth on Bounce

Software: Arturia Jupiter 8-V.

I got around it by bouncing it in place and using that for the final mix. BIP didn’t seem to suffer from the same problem for this one time.

Transpose of a single MIDI track down by a fifth on Bounce

This is driving me mad. I am >< that far away from finishing this track, and it worked fine for the three weeks I've been working on it. It's a 35 minute long piece that combines MIDI and audio in several sections, and I am adding the last four minutes' coda. Today, when I Bounce the project, or Bou...

Re: MIDI notes from external sequencer not being "seen" by Logic Topic is solved

YES! That was it! I have never been into that section, so I am more or less sure that Logic disabled that port itself. Maybe I did and forgot? [attachment=0]Screen Shot 2020-04-18 at 10.34.19 AM.png[/attachment] I enabled the correct port and now I see MIDI data from all three channels in Logic. Tha...

Re: MIDI notes from external sequencer not being "seen" by Logic Topic is solved

It's in Project Settings > MIDI > Input Filter and is global to the project - no individual MIDI devices can be selected. And it's blank. Thanks for trying to help! The real issue is Logic is picking the wrong MIDI port on the sequencer, from which no MIDI will ever emerge, instead of the "In&q...

Thanks, JakobP. Good idea, sadly everything in there is normal (just Logic Remote running on an iPad)
