    I'm having trouble with the I/O plug in Logic.

    My interface is a Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 with Mix Control.

    My plan was to run a track into an ART Voice Channel out of the output from the Pro 40 into the ART and then back into Pro 40.

    I was trying to use the I/O plug in with no results.

    After a looking at a few YouTube videos I watched one guy do what I wanted to do but only he was using Logic 9 but he was using a Pro 40 BUT he was using the Mix Control to route the signal. Every other video I have seen on re-amping or running hardware into your DAW using the Pro 40 (or any other Focusrite Saffire product) never mention this. Only that one

    So, I go back to the recording room and proceeded to:
    -came out of output 3 of the Pro 40 into the ART
    -came out of the out on the ART into input 3
    -set output 3 on the Mix Control to DAW 3
    -created a new audio track
    -and everything worked

    So what is up with the I/O plug in?

    Hey VJF !
    I'm not a Logic pro user but I had a saffire for many years (still do but I use it for headphone amp)
    I'm pretty sure, it's a mix control issue. For each physical output, you need to assign a source. Either directly or within a mix.
    The output 3 of the daw needs to be routed by mix control to the physical output 3..
    Something like this :

    Hope this helps

    That's exactly what I ended up doing, which is fine. On the road to investing in a patch-bay.
