You do not mention an audio interface, so I assume you work via USB only.

– Generally: According to the website the Headrush can use USB 2.0 or 3.0
Are you sure your Mac is compatible?

– Keyboard: Can you record MIDI data from the Akai keyboard?

– Microphone: Can you record via the USB microphone?

– Generally: Does your Logic record in 24 Bit (default)?
This is necessary for the Headrush.

– Headrush: Do you have the latest firmware (Version 1.1.1)?

– Headrush: Are the USB settings correct, according to the manual?

– Headrush: The manual shows inconsistent specifications of the sample rate for USB. First it says 44,1/48/96 kHz, in the recording section it says 48 or 96 kHz. Have you tried to record with 48 kHz and started the Headrush before Logic, as suggested in the manual?

– Headrush: Have you tested the reamping mode instead of normal USB recording?
(Logic to Headrush and back to Logic)

hi its me again, over the last we while played with the updating of the headrush pedalboard, took a while to update the version 1.1.1( did not mange to do it quite like the instructions but got it done eventually, then here is the good bit i tried to record and the mac said and showed i had recorded, but no volume either in record or playback mode.

pretty ***** *** with this so i switched it off, 10 minutes later i started reading my books again and switched it on to try and some how recover and it had started consolidating and i had volume had to turn the volume all the way down and yip i have my first recording (****) but it is a start Thank you again for the reply and now going to follow the book and try again.
