Can I save controller assignments? [SOLVED]

Sun Oct 16, 2011 7:09 pm

I just accidentally deleted all 18 switches and 9 faders assignments in the controller assignments window and now I have to reprogram everything again :)

It would be nice to have a save option to save the controller settings. Or maybe it's possible to save it somehow and load the file when needed?

Those commands are saved in the Preferences folder Logic Pro > Preferences > The file ending in .cs are your control surface details. ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.logic.pro.cs
Luckily I use Time Machine cause the same thing happened to me the other day but I just rolled back Time Machine a few days and restored that Preference and all is back to normal.

What buzwah said. Make sure you ALWAYS quit Logic first, then copy ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.logic.pro.cs to make a backup, or quit Logic first then replace ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.logic.pro.cs with your backup to restore.

Ok I am glad there is a solution but how do I find the file in the finder. I was looking for Logic Pro folder and couldn't find it. Where do I look?

thanks

~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.logic.pro.cs

The text in red means:

Home Folder/Library/Preferences/com.apple.logic.pro.cs

That's where you'll find it.

Yes, that's what "~/" means (my post). That's also what "Home Folder" means (ski's post). We just like to be cryptic like that. :lol:

Seriously though, glad to hear you resolved this.
