    Hi, I'm trying to record automation from my prophet 8 into logic 9 but I keep getting non reg lsb and msb messages. What are these? Are they the reason my automation wont record properly as in cc messages keep getting reset.
    I have tested my midi using a midi monitor and you can see these messages.
    See attached screen shot.

    A friend had the same problems with ableton and resolved by having the midi input as his soundcard and output as track and sync.
    I cant seem to work it out, any ideas guys (or girls)?

    Most likely yes. Your CC values are not really resetted but each NRPN message consists of a couple of messages and such a group builds one final message with an extended range, undeliverable by standard MIDI. If you use only parts of these messages your automation may jump like crazy.

    If you want to see the numbers and values of the messages better, you should set the controller display preferences of Midi Monitor to "decimal" or "hexadecimal", whichever you prefer.

    I don't understand the second part of the sentence but anyway – what do you expect these messages to do? It should be possible to record them and send them back to the synth at playback, but decoding and transforming them to get a usable range is a rather tough job in Logic.

    Maybe your synth can be set to send standard MIDI, this would be much easier if you want to automate Logic.
