MioConsole 3d question here.. Running Logic X and MH 2882 3d. Trying to use hardware inserts, I'm having trouble getting the routing correct. On the Logic track I create an instance of I/O plugin--Where should I route the output and input? Then I create a new input strip in MioConsole--what channel should I bring the audio in on? Then on the Mioconsole input strip I create an I/O with routing over anaolg outputs/inputs to my compressor and back. Once I get the return from the compressor how do I send it back to Logic? In 3d there are no DAW or FW labelled channels, correct? In Logic I see outputs 1-32 but no DAW, Firewire, Analog, Digital labelling....and if I reset I/O labels there is no information provided by the driver. Why am I so confused??😂

Same reason I am. Questions like this have been asked a few times, seems like there's not much patience for people without a lot of hardware routing experience. I've had some luck but it's always a piecemeal and unintuitive arrangement. If I hit on a simple communication between Logic's i/o and Mio's i/o I'll let you know. Sorry!

Have you guys gotten in touch with support?

https://mhsecure.com/support

This sort of question is generally easier to answer interactively through our support channel.

That said, here is the cliff notes version:

In logic:

route to and from open channels (it doesn't matter which, as long as they are not being used by other i/o in logic). Note the channel numbers. You may find it easiest to use the same channel numbers for both input and output

In MIOConsole:

make a strip sourced by Host NN (where NN is the channel you routed to in Logic)
Set the post Insert direct out to Host YY (where YY is the channel you returned from in Logic)
If you want to use MIO Processing, insert the processing on the strip.
If you want the use an analog or digital loop, insert an I/O into an insert on the strip
In the I/O:

set the send the output you will connect to the input of your external device
set the return to input you will connect to the output of your external device

You only see Outputs 1-32 or Inputs 1-32 in logic because Logic routes to the MIO; the routing to physical I/O is done within the MIO and it is too ephemeral so it is not reported to Logic.

If you have further questions, it would probably be best to send them to support with details of precisely what you are trying to do, but if you follow the steps outlined above, it ought to be straightforward to set up your routing.

Thanks so much for this reply. I basically got this sorted out. Will the Logic I/O latency compensation work when routed through Mio Console? It appears to me that it does not since I don't get any result when I "Ping" from the Logic I/O plugin.
