Logic TDM MIDI lockup, problems with Digidesign 003 driver?

    After installing the Digidesign 002/003 driver today, I´ve gotten some problems.

    When trying to start Logic first time after installing the driver, it took a long time checking MIDI drivers, before I was told there was something wrong with my them, so I needed to restart my computer. So I did, and Logic started up as normal. I recorded a 12 track session, everything seemed to work out just fine.

    When returning home to my RME Fireface, I´m having trouble starting up Logic, and get the same message about errors on the MIDI drivers. When I to start Utilities->Audio and MIDI setup in Finder, and then opening the MIDI window, it says "loading" for a long time. After a while I get a message that the MIDI server could not be opened, and are recommended to remove newly installed drivers. I´ve tried removing what I can of Digidesign stuff, but I keep getting the same issues after a new restart. "Digi CoreAudio Device" still shows up in Audio units, but I can´t get the option to remove it, and it also shows up in Audio devices in OSX preferences (hm, I don´t know the right translation here. It´s where you can switch between external or internal sound devices for In/Out). This happens whether RME Fireface is connected or not, and I´ve tried several restarts.

    Preferably I would keep/reinstall the driver, as I need to use the Digidesign 003 Rack+ next week as well, but first of all I need to start up Logic.

    The installed/active MIDI devices are 2 iOS remote apps and Native Instruments Kore. I mostly use Logic without any of these, but even if I just installed the last iOS app connection (DAW Remote) a few days ago, I´ve never been having any issues with this.

    Anyone who know how I might solve this problem?

    Macbook (early 2008), OSX 10.7.4, Logic Pro 9.1.7).

    I had to take out the digi midi drivers ( but not audio) in order to get my set up to work just last week. They were in library/audio/ midi (roughly).

    I vaguely remember having come across this at some time or another as well and having to remove the Digi MIDI drivers. And it seemed to solve things.

    I forgot to tell, but I got the same tip from my local music store, and it solved the problems for me as well.

    Root level of the system drive ---> Library ---> Audio ---> MIDI Devices or MIDI Drivers.

    If it's not there, check in the same directories in your User Libraries. But it should be in the Global one.

    I have been using Logic since 1.560 B.C. :)

    And for some stupid reason this is the FIRST time i join a usergroup like this.

    You guys just solved my problem when installing a Digi 003 Rack+ with Logic 9
    on Mac OS Lion (10.7.3)

    THANK YOU!!!

    And WHY! is it always that WE the USERS who BUY these products for professional use for a lot of money, ALWAYS have to do all the hazzle with software/hardware/drivers/operatives?!

    To ALL you manufacturers and developers out there PLEASE!
    get better at giving US the USERS who buy YOUR PRODUCTS and paying your salarys the BEST SUPPORT and HELP you can.

    I don´t know how many hours, days, weeks and months i have spent the last
    20 years as a musician/studio owner/producer on trouble shooting...

    And mostly getting my help from collegues, or forums like this one.

    THANKS to ELI in Montreal! :)
