The Code25, Code49, and Code61 are engineered to be all-in-one controller solutions for comprehensive interfacing and manipulation of virtual instruments, effect plugins, DAWs, and more.  This articles walks through how to set up the Code series controller with Logic.




Logic Pro X Setup

The M-Audio Code series keyboard is a class-compliant MIDI device. A class-compliant device is one that doesn't require extra drivers to connect your Windows or Macintosh computer. Class compliant devices use drivers which are built into the host (i.e. the computer) operating system. 

  1. Begin by connecting the M-Audio Code series keyboard into a free USB port on your computer. We recommend going into the back of your computer, as this is closest to the power supply. This will provide the most power necessary to the controller for optimum performance. 

  2. After connecting the controller to your computer, your Mac will install the driver necessary for the M-Audio Code keyboard to communicate with your computer.

  3. You will now have key control in Logic beginning upon startup

Logic Pro X Controller Assignments
