UF8 and LUNA

https://account.solidstatelogic.com/assets/uploads/product-images/SSL-UF8.jpg

 

In LUNA 1.2 Universal Audio introduced MCU control. Although there is currently no dedicated profile for LUNA in SSL 360°, UA did develop and test their MCU control using a UF8 set to 'Logic Pro'.

Currently V-Pots are restricted to controlling PAN but UA plans to develop their MCU control further in the future. UA are encouraging users to use the Feedback button located in the top-right corner of the LUNA window to submit their requests for additional MCU features.

 

Setup

Set SSL 360° to 'Logic Pro' on a LAYER.

In LUNA go to SETTINGS > CONTROLLERS tab.

 

If you would like to use LUNA on LAYER 1 then do the following:

Set INPUT DEVICE to SSL V-MIDI Port 1 

Set OUTPUT DEVICE to SSL V-MIDI Port 1.

Check the ON box in the left-hand column.

 

Functions

 The current controls have been implemented by UA for their MCU control. For more detailed information, visit the UA website.
