Logic 9 MIDI foot controller settings

    Hi guys, thanks for looking. I apologize if this question is poorly asked, and/or if the answer can be found elsewhere.

    I am asking this question for a Japanese friend who can not speak English- I'm 99% sure I am understanding his Japanese correctly.
    I am somewhat familiar with audio, but not to the extent that I can figure this out by myself. Nor am I a Logic user. :eeek:

    Help please!

    OK-

    My friend is using a MacBook/Apple 10.6.8 and is running Logic Pro 9.
    He wants to use a wah-wah effect through POD FARM 2 but needed a controller, so he got an MBV EXPRESS MKII.


    When he launches POD FARM as a stand alone plugin while the MBV is connected he is able to effect the controller pedal and see the desired affect inside POD FARM. (i.e. He physically moves the pedal with his foot and the pedal is seen as moving inside the app.)


    However, when he launches the plugin within Logic, the physical pedal does not affect the pedal within the plugin. Instead on whatever track is selected the fader is manipulated.

    As Logic seems to receive MIDI data instead of the POD FARM plugin, we can assume that it is a setting issue, but I can't even begin to guess where to look. We tried to use the menu opened in "Command + L" and set settings but either that is the wrong place for or problem or we screwed something up.


    I hate asking something which I am sure is such a n00b question-:brkwl:

    Thank you so much in advance.

    This is the right place, you are talking about Controller Assignments. First, use the expert view there. Delete everthing you had done before.


    1. Open the Controller Assignment panel with "Command+L"
    2. Delete everything you made before.
    3. Select the track where the plugin is.
    4. Open the plugin.
    5. Switch the Controller Assignments to learn mode.
    6. Move the fader in the plugin, that should response.
    7. Move the Expression pedal.
    8. You should get a message that the assignment was learned and see it in the assignment list as a one-line-entry.
    9. Disable learn mode.
    10. Ready.

    Problem solved!

    Hello Peter,

    I met with my friend and once we figured out a few language things we successfully set up his equipment.

    I see now how simple an action it was...
    Thank you so much for taking the time to help us out!:)
