1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Crush Pack, Mod Pack, Replika, and Replika XT will crash.

    Our teams are currently working on a fix, and we hope to have this out to you as soon as we can!

    Best wishes, 
    The NI Team

    Here is the last page of a nice beginner tutorial on Massive X:
    https://www.native-instruments.com/en/massive-x-quickstart/playing-and-controlling-massive-x/

    For a complete novice like me, this was very useful in learning some basics of synthesizers.

    Small question: At the link above, they describe how one can control two parameters with one knob. I got this to work just fine, but one small, first world issue - the software knobs don't twist when I twist the physical knob on my k61 mk2 or Maschine Studio, or touch strip on Maschine JAM. All three controllers change both parameters, but the software knobs in the Massive X gui don't change. (Running Massive X in Maschine).

    Is this normal/non-fixable? Twisting the knob at A doesn't change the knobs at B, though the two parameters *do* change as expected.

    Yeah that behavior is absolutely normal cause if you use the boxes to drag a macro in it works relative, you have also to set the amount indicated by a partial ring, You can also drag drag directly on the knob but only once then the macro and parameter are tied together absolutely.

    There're two things that one could do:
    1. Display the knob1 range at B in a darker-shaded red and while playing overlay it with the current red depending on the amount knob1 is turned (just like a meter that is filled)
    2. Add a second marker on the knobs at B showing the actual current value (i.e. sum of all modulators)

    I'd really like to have both. It also helps unterstanding presets. If you turn a knob you'll instantly see other stuff moving so you can guess how one knob/modulator affects everything else.
