Controller Assignments are stored in a file:
(The suffix .cs stands for "Control Surfaces")
If you delete this file or move it out of the folder, all custom assignments are gone and Logic makes a new file. Basically the same as deleting...
Your input port is an IAC Bus.
Feedback for IAC is not available because the IAC driver feeds back to itself by default. I like to call it "IAC Echo". Sometimes good, sometimes not.
You have to find a way to use another MIDI port, virtual or hardware. Maybe your Arduino has USB with its own...
Just a note: There are settings for reset messages in Logic’s global MIDI preferences, but the option for "send used instrument settings" does not work, at least not in my 10.5.1 Logic under Mojave. This option should send learned (assigned) parameters at several occasions, see the Logic user...
If you are familiar with Logic’s MIDI Environment, you can do it. Connect a monitor object to the channelstrip with the plugin, move knobs and faders in the plugin and look what the monitor shows. If you see "Fader" events, you are fine. Take a transformer with a map or a couple of transformers...
I think it is not the best idea to do this on a MIDI basis alone. From my experience this doesn’t provide enough control.
Rather have the two (or more) instruments online all the time, adjust their behavior in their settings and control their volume fader or any gain plugin and/or filter with...

In the left list click on "Microphone" and look in the right list if the streaming software is activated, which actually means that it is allowed to use audio inputs.
Punch in: you hear your new sound.
Punch out: you hear the original again.
If I understand you right, you want to record all the time and hear the original all the time. For that you need another track.
In case that you wish to hear always the latest recorded track ... mmh ... may...
The Logic User Guide covers much of the Environment.
It should be available as PDF also, somewhere.
Be aware that the Logic Environment is graphical programming,
it is complex. There are often different solutions for the same target.
To help in your specific case I would like to know what...
Maybe easier to use Logic’s MIDI FX plugins? You can do it.
Create an instrument track and at instrument selection look down the list, there should be an entry "AU MIDI-controlled effects". These effects usually have sidechains (external audio input). Take a plugin that doesn’t alter the tone...
Good to hear that you got it working. But I cannot help you with your current questions. I am not a SysEx guru, I know just basics and if it comes to complex structures I rather tend to give up and don’t control these parts of a device. And I hate SysEx manuals and even more the guys who write...
Fader, Instrument and Multi-instrument are not part of the problem. SysEx data are just numbers in text strings. Once the code is correctly created and on the way, it does not matter where it comes from.
I am afraid there is no universal generic SysEx string to test all devices on this planet...
ad 1) Editing SysEx data:
For me a single click on the code works.
You may try alt-click.
ad 2) Activation before editor close:
Yes, make it blue.
ad 3) The fields Checksum, Position and Value:
Those fields are not necessary in this case. Leave them at their default values.
Btw, "Position" is...
You are almost there.
No, the SyEx string does not require all 16 byte positions. It requires F0 (Start of File) and F7 (End of File) and in between exactly what your piano needs. There is no rule for the length. The MIDI channel does not matter.
This should work:
Set the fader output to SysEx...
I am afraid the only way to get the maintenance machinery moving a little is to send a lot of bug reports to Apple via Logic’s feedback function. Then, if we are lucky, one day in a not so far future a developer might get permission to look into the old code and try to fix those wandering...
Yes. He sends you the download link by email and you may get occasional emails afterwards.
The application is faceless like Soundflower. Manual (Wiki), installing and uninstalling instructions are on the github website.
If you don't have many and want to stay rather on the save side you can use CCs 80-119. Some plugins may react to that, but there is no 'official' function bound to these numbers.
Otherwise you are right: You can use what you want.
Well, this is a simple addition of two fader values, but in the Logic Environment it is not as simple as it sounds. The transformer is the only object capable of some math, but changing the "add" value in a transformer does not trigger output. This means, the output only changes if you move the...
Depends on what you want.
Fader A is the master and operates with an offset set by Fader B. In this case Fader B doesn't produce output, it just sets the offset.
If Fader B is moved, it constantly adds the offset to the current value of Fader A. In this case, both faders...
