I cannot for the life of me figure this one out. I am trying to control smart controls with my external midi controller. I am able to assign them but as soon as they are assigned they do not work. Now I am ONLY having this problem in my template :: I can make this work in a new empty template. But I have deleted all midi cabling and complicated routing that I would imagine could be interfering with any midi assignments but to no avail. I just cannot think of how to troubleshoot this. This new template I have made is pretty simple. NEWSFLASH... O.M.G.!!! I HAVE JUST SOLVED THIS!! The smart control assignments are not working (not on this machine anyway) when the track is in a sub mix folder (summing folder). I drag them out of that and it works! I hope this helps anyone else encountering the same issue.
