asked Jun 5, 2020 in FaderPort 2018 by chrisdodkin (120 points)

Using the 2018 Faderport with Mac Logic Pro X version 10.4. macOS Catalina 10.15. 5

Installed the Universal Control App - updated the firmware on the Faderport.

Ran the boot-up procedure on the Faderport to select Logic mode.

Faderport shows up in Logic Pro X and works as advertised for a few days.

Today it freezes - no buttons or controls work any more - even though Logic is still running ok, and can be controlled from the Mac keyboard.

Power cycle the Faderport - still frozen.

Quit and re-launch Logic - Faderport still frozen.

Reboot Faderport with setup process for Logic - still frozen

Reboot Faderport with setup process for default (Not Logic) - Play/Stop/Loop/Record buttons now work.

Reboot Faderport with setup process for Logic - still frozen

Shut down everything - reset firmware on Faderport - Then reboot in Logic mode - power everything back on - works as advertised in Logic again.

What's going on here? Anyone else seen this behavior?

I have the same issue.

After about an hour, FADERPORT V2 stops working with LOGIC X. 

I am running the latest update of Logic (Dec 2021) and

Monterey on an Mac Mini.

I guess this is normal ... I had the same issue took all the same steps... all day, it just stayed froze until 3 mins ago.

I'm running Studio one 5.5.1 (Win 10 64bit) tho and it still crashed on me.

Universal Control (firmware v3.51)
