MIDI control assignment on aux tracks

Go to solution Solved by koam,

Recommended Posts


I want to use my MIDI controller (Electra One) to control various plugins on my aux tracks.

I layout all the controls I want in the Electra app, then go into Logic and learn all the controls in Control Surfaces > Controller Assignments... everything works fine... until I add or remove a track from the project... which makes Logic change the channel strip number for the aux tracks and thus all the MIDI mappings stop working (unless I go back into Controller Assignments and update the channel strip number for all MIDI mappings).

Can you make Logic freeze the channel number of aux tracks - so I can add and remove tracks from a project without messing up MIDI mappings?

Or is there a better/alternative (and probably blindingly obvious 🙃) way of doing this that I'm missing?

Many Thanks

Whenever I added or removed tracks the channel strip number in Controller Assignments was changing... which obviously messed up MIDI mappings.

The solution was blindingly obvious as I expected - I just needed to change the Channel Strip type to Auxiliary in Controller Assignments.
