Mark - you were talking about how rubbish using a Korg controller with Logic is - if you are talking about the Kontrol or microKontrol, you are right - native Logic support is poor, and using it manually is poor.

The solution that I'm 100% happy with is LC Xmu from OpusLocus - it turns the mK into a Mackie Control, it's been brilliantly designed, and it's like using all the best features of native mode, but *intelligently* dveloped, rather than just slapped in there.

Check it out before you skip the Korg - it's made a *world* of difference for me...

(And logic was *always* a Mac program first - quit it with this "Atari" stuff... ;)

FYI Nick,

it`s the Noro Virus causing an enteritis. Used to be called Norwalk Virus then Norwalk Like...so now we (md`s) use the name Noro just for confusion - just like MDs are known for ;-) Right now - winter time - it`s popular over here in germany,too !

Cya,Red !
