    Help with Midi Controller
    Sorry for the misposting before, anyway, i have M-Audio Oxygen 61 keyboard and i was hoping to find out how to assign all the sliders and nobs on the keyboard so that they could work like fader or pan controls. I can already control the midi notes by pressing keys but i just don't know how to use the extra sliders and nobs on the keyboard with logic. So, Please help me.

    Hi again, Learning assignments with a MIDI keyboard is one of my favourite parts of Logic! This process can work with any plug-in or channel strip parameter (knob, button or fader). 1- In Logic move the desired channel strip fader with your mouse cursor. This selects the parameter. 2- Go to Logic > Preferences > Control Surfaces > Learn Assignment for... (or press Command - L) 3- The Controller assignments window pops up. Select 'easy view' initially. 4- The paramater name (e.g. volume for a channels trip fader) should appear next to parameter. If not move the fader up and down again with your mouse. 5- Now click or make sure the Learn Assignment button (bottom right of window) is highlighted. 6- Move desired fader/knob on your Oxygen 61. Often works best slowly and then a bit faster... 7- click the 'Learn Assignment' button again to deselect it. 8- Close the window & move the knob to get it working. Sometimes Logic takes a little encouragement to learn an assignment! I often find an extra step of clicking on the fader with the mouse and then moving the MIDI controller fader/knob does the trick. Now you have a knob/fader/button assigned to a parameter in Logic! More info can be found on p.164 of the Logic Pro Manual. Cheers Rounik
