  1. Can you tell me step by step how to set midi in motion up to logic as the included instructions are NOT clear. Thanks.

  2. Hi,

    I stumbled about your post by pure accident. I did rather expect to recieve an email ([email protected]) as this address is posted on my website (http://midiinmotion.fschwehn.com/support/).
    I assume, that you have already read all of the available help pages. I cannot say where your attempt to setup a connection between the app and Logic got stuck. In Logic there is nothing special to be done. It should work out of the box as soon as the connection between app and Core MIDI session stands.
    Please let me know
    I would be glad to recieve a message from you with more detailed information about the problem. It would help me to improve the documentation.

    Thanks in advance,
