    I just got a Qu-16 and I’m trying to get it working with Logic Pro 9. I went through the process of setting up the Mackie Control according to the Allen and Heath tutorial, but nothing seems to be communicating with Logic. I had been using a Presonus 8 channel interface previously. I just made the step up and am having a hard time getting going… Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Update… I was able to get a mic signal to record in Logic through channel 1 of the Qu-16. Then the playback was coming back through channel 2. This was without the USB Preamp button switched on. When the USB Preamp is on both logic and the Qu16 get feedback when I raise the faders. I still have none of the Mackie Control features working. Thanks for any suggestions!

    Hi Tyler,

    Mackie Control – have you followed all steps of the DAW Control setup notes for Qu-16? If so please open a ticket with our Support team and perhaps attach a screenshot of your Control Surfaces / Setup window and one of your Environment / Clicks and Ports window.

    Audio routing – when you select a track in Logic you should see some details in the track inspector.

    To set the source, click and hold on ‘Input’ under I/O, then hover over Input and release to select the required input. For example Input 1 for Qu-16 Mono Channel 1.

    To set a different destination, click and hold on ‘Output’, then hover over ‘Output’ and release to select the required output or bus. This is likely to be either the corresponding Qu-16 channel or a master bus in Logic, depending on your workflow.

    You might find this easier by starting a new, empty project. The New Tracks window should open automatically. To start with, enter ’16’ as the number of tracks, ‘Audio’ as the type, ‘Mono’ as the format. Select Input/Input 1 and Output/Mono/Output 1, tick both ‘Ascending’ option boxes, then click Create. This way each track will be sourced from and routed to the corresponding Mono Channel on Qu-16.

    Thanks Nicola. I did open a ticket with the support team. I tried setting up a new 16 channel file like you suggested with no luck; however, today I was able to get playback coming through the Qu from pre-existing Logic files. The main L Output is being sent to channel 1 on the Qu and main R is being sent to channel 2. I still have not been able to get a mic signal from the Qu to record in Logic. Any thoughts? I’ll attach a couple screen shots as well.

    It’s sort of related but instead with a qu-24. I’m trying to record into logic through the qu-24. I’m getting signal in all ok but for some reason it bypasses the qu-24 faders. I can’t control the volume been recorded in logic with the faders but instead I have to use the Gain control. Is there something I’m missing here?

    Thanks 🙂

    You may want to read the answer to your question in that other thread: Logic Pro 10 not responding to Q24 mono Channel level when recording.
