If you can't connect Logic Remote to Logic Pro, GarageBand or MainStage

To connect Logic Remote, check the network settings on your devices or remove a TouchOSC control surface from Logic Pro.

Make sure all devices are on the same Wi-Fi network

Your iPhone or iPad running Logic Remote and your Mac running Logic Pro must be on the same Wi-Fi network:

Make sure Logic Remote can access the local network

With iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 or later, any app that wants to interact with devices on your network must ask for permission the first time it tries to browse your local network. You can check to make sure the app can access your local network:

  1. In the Settings app, go to Privacy > Local Network.

  2. Make sure Logic Remote is turned on.

Firewall settings on your Mac may be blocking Logic Remote from connecting.

  1. Choose System Settings from the Apple menu , then click Network in the sidebar.

  2. Click Firewall.

Remove TouchOSC device from Logic Pro

  2. Open Logic Pro on your Mac.

  3. Choose Logic Pro > Control Surfaces > Setup.

  4. Check to see if a TouchOSC device appears in the window. If so, select the device, press the Delete key, then click OK.

  5. If there are other Logic Remotes in the window, delete them.

  6. Connect Logic Remote.
