Is there a setting to configure foot controller in Logic?
      #1036660 - 06/03/13 09:51 AM
Hi all,

I bought an M-Audio M-Gear Ex-P foot controller pedal a few years ago that unlocked a programme I was running (which only functioned with a cc11 signal) but never actually worked properly. By this I mean it only registers from midi parameters 73-127.

I am reasonably confidant it isn't a polarity issue as there's a polarity switch on the back of the pedal which if turned one way results in no data being registered at all, switched the other way will send a signal registering 73-127. That having been said it might well be a polarity and rhino infestation issue as far as I know, so little do I know about this end of things.

I rang M-Audio who suggested it might be a configuration issue within Logic itself. I went to preferences > Midi > Control 4 (foot control) to zero and ticked and restarted Logic but to no avail.

Does anyone know what I need to do to gain the full 1-127 functionality of the pedal?

Many thanks.

Can you check with another sequencer?

Good idea - downloading a trial of Ableton just now.
