Instead of having UF1 and UF8 synchronised to control Logic Pro, you may find it useful to have Logic treat them as independent control surfaces. This would allow you to, for instance, set UF1 to a particular track (like an important lead vocal), leave it there and for it not to be affected by your banking around on UF8 to control other channels. You can setup this functionality by using Logic Pro’s control surface groups.
1. In SSL 360°, go to the UF1 Layer and configure Logic Pro for Layer 1. If you do not see Logic Pro in the drop-down list, ensure you have chosen Logic Pro for DAW 1on the CONTROL SETUP page in SSL 360°.
2. In SSL 360°, go to the UF8 Layer and configure Logic Pro for Layer 2. If you do not see Logic Pro in the drop-down list, ensure you have chosen Logic Pro for DAW 2 on the CONTROL SETUP page in SSL 360°.
3. In Logic’s Control Surface Setup, insert a Mackie Control and set the Input and Output Ports to SSL V-MIDI Port 1. Make sure your UF1 is set to control Layer 1.
4. Then insert another Mackie Control and set the Input and Output Ports to SSL V-MIDI Port 5. Make sure your UF8 is set to control Layer 2.
5. Then, the MOST IMPORTANT final step, is to drag and drop the 2nd Mackie Control and move it to be directly below the first Mackie Control. This is what creates the independent control group in Logic.
You have now created 2 completely independent control surfaces in Logic Pro
