9.1-Channel Studio Manual
Note: I recently upgraded to MioConsole3d beta 6 ... so you need to trash your MIO preferences:
- click on Finder
- navigate to your user folder (in the "Users" folder ... mine has a house icon and is called /Users/b_johansen/)
- hold down option and click the Go menu at the top of the screen
- choose "Library"
- navigate to Users/yourname/Library/Preferences/
- delete the "MIOConsole3d" folder
- delete "com.mhlabs.MIOConsoleX-CC.list"
Here is the 5.1 surround sound MioConsole3d template.
- login to computer
- flip on the power switch on the Furman at the very top right of the rack (this turns on the interfaces):
- wait for a few seconds for the interface to turn on so there is no pop in the speakers
- turn the key on the power sequence switch (this turns on the speakers):
- open MIOConsole3d.app (application on the Mac Pro computer)
- open the DAW or other audio program you will be working in and choose "MHLink Audio" as the interface.
- Execute the same steps as above but in reverse order
If using Logic:
Do the following to disable the MCU Pro within Logic so it controls MIOConsole3d ONLY
- open Logic
- if you are starting a new project, it is best to do the following before creating a new project
- go to the menu Logic Pro X > Preferences > Advanced Tools …
- put a checkmark in "Show Advanced Tools" and click the "Enable All" button at the bottom
- go to the menu Logic Pro X > Control Surfaces and click "Bypass All Control Surfaces”
- create a new Logic Project (File > New)
Then, do the following if you are going to use software (MIDI controlled) instruments in your project. Here is a short video showing the following:
- go to the menu Window > Open MIDI Environment
- next to "Layer:" at the very top left of the Environment box, choose "Click & Ports”
- from the "New" dropdown menu at the top of the Environment box, choose “Monitor"
- move the "Monitor" object below the other objects
- make the Physical Input box larger by clicking on it and dragging the bottom right of the box
- click and drag to create patch cables between all four outputs from the "Physical Input" box MCU Pro Ports to the Monitor box you just created
- now it will monitor the inputs but it will not allow them to be used by instruments in Logic
