Mackie Control display control buttons in Logic Pro
The control buttons, located just below the left edge of the Time display, affect what you see in the main LCD and Time display.
SMPTE/BEATS: Press the SMPTE/BEATS button to switch between the two time formats (SMPTE time or beats). See Overview of Mackie Control displays in Logic Pro.
NAME/VALUE: Press the NAME/VALUE button to switch between the two parameter display formats (either the parameter name or value is shown) on the main LCD.
Hold down the SHIFT button, then press the NAME/VALUE button to cycle through three level meter modes on the main LCD:
Vertical: In this mode, the last character of each channel (in both LCD rows) is overlaid by a vertical bar that shows the channel level. The text characters reappear when the level meter is not visible.
Horizontal with Peak Hold: In this mode, the lower row of the LCD is replaced by horizontal channel level bars. Peak Hold appears as a hollow box, which disappears after a few seconds. Signal overloads (clipping) are indicated by an asterisk, which remains on the LCD display until cleared.
Off: In this mode, no level meter bars are displayed in the main LCD.
In all three modes, the SIGNAL LEDs of the channel strips function as per usual, indicating the presence of a signal.
Hold down the CONTROL button, then press the NAME/VALUE button to clear any overload (clipping) indicators in the Logic Pro Mixer and in the LCD if the Horizontal with Peak Hold mode is active.
Hold down the CMD/ALT or OPTION button, then press the NAME/VALUE button to turn on Control Surface Group Settings mode. This mode lets you edit the outlined control surface group settings, some of which are not accessible with a single button.
You can exit Control Surface Group Settings mode by pressing NAME/VALUE or by entering one of the Marker or Nudge modes. See Mackie Control Marker button in Logic Pro and Mackie Control Nudge button in Logic Pro.
