So I assume when you say you downloaded the latest drivers, you are talking about the version 1.3.0 from this source:

Ok so to configure Apple Logic Pro to use this control surface follow these instructions:


1. Select "Preferences" > "Control surfaces" > "Setup..." from the "Logic Pro" menu. This opens the "Setup" window.

2. Click on the top left "New" and select "Install" from the pull-down menu.

3. Select "Mackie Designs/Mackie Control/Logic Control" from the list in the "Install" window and click the "Add" button.

"Mackie Control" will be added to the setup window.

4. Click the "Mackie Control" icon. Then, from the top of the list at the left set "Out Port" and "Input" to "ZOOM R16_R24" using their pull down menus.


1. Select "Preferences" > "Control surface" > "Controller Assignments..." from the "Logic Pro" menu. This opens the "Controller Assignments" window.

2. From the "Zone" column select "Control Surface: Mackie Control." Change the functions as you like.

3. Controls F1~F5 correspond to the F1~F5 keys on the R24.

The above procedures are for Logic Pro 9. The names of the menus, for example, might be different in a different version of Logic.

Make sure you have run all the MAC OSX updates from your System Menu > Check for updates.

This device needs full USB power so don't run it off a USB hub unless its a powered one.

SEtting tempo on metronome Zoom R24

The metronome speed is controlled by the Tempo setting. The metronome controls only adjust the volume of the metronome and if the metronome is heard on the input or output recording. The R24 manual is available here: . See page 20 for setting the Tempo. The Tempo button is below the Tempo label to the left of the LCD display on the right side of the Zoom R24.

I hope this helps.

Only half the volume on the left channel of the mixer. Why? :(

Does the left meter do the same thing? If the meter matches the right one, I would suspect the volume potentiometer on the powered speaker. Try exercising the volume knob. There might be some oxidizing on the potentiometer.

There is no fuse... the USB is electronically fused in the COMPUTER, not the NIO.

The USB units will NOT activate or light UNLESS the correct driver is loaded and active in the computer. In the Windows type environment you ALSO have to select the external device as the default as opposed to the computer's internal audio system. The MAC likely has a similar setting.

Check if the Mbox2 has an echo setting that echos the audio from its input. If you want the audio to loop through the PC then it will have to echo there instead. Check that in "Sound and devices" of the PC are all set to transfer via the MBox for voice and playback instead of the internal PC audio system.

What exactly do I need to connect a Mackie 402-VLZ3 to a Macbook Pro ? Where can I buy the cables? Thanks!

The internal audio systems in the PC's are inadequate for high quality work. You should get an external audio system that attaches via firewire or USB to your MAC. Then use balanced cables from the mixer to this audio interface. There are MANY different audio interfaces... Search the music equipment suppliers in the "recording" section of their catalog...

My problem is that I have an xr-20 an was wondering what would be the best "bang for my Buck" when it comes to a music program to make the beats transferable to CD at CD quality I'm trying to start slow...

If you are looking for a straight audio solution Audacity is free and you can do lots with it. I was looking for recording software and got Reaper myself. It is a multitrack audio and midi recording program. It is free to try out and around $70.00 for the licence. One example is if you have a midi to usb adapter you can output midi from your XR-20 through the adapter into your computer into a channel on Reaper, record it as a track and work with it after that. You can edit it as midi or you can also record the audio from the XR-20 onto a track. With VSTi there are free synths on the Internet that you can use as FX for the track and run them using the midi track that you recorded. You can also run sample players that way. Here are some useful links: also In case you don't understand midi or recording here is another link to a site I highly recommend: ( It is listed as an attack site but I can vouch for the owner that it is absolutely not.) I downloaded the free Killer Home Recording Setting Up pdf and it is a wealth of free info. This site also has detailed explanations of Midi etc. I am a member of the forum(It is free to join as are the forums at the other sites I recommended). Joining forums is also a great way to meet users of the same gear as you. They are usually quite willing to help you as they have all been using that gear.
