Getting up and running with LogicEase is a 3-step process.

Firstly, you’ll need to install an app called Keyboard Maestro. This App enables LogicEase to understand which keys you’re pressing when using Logic and to take action based on those keys.

Next, you’ll need to install LogicEase itself

Finally, you’ll need to make a few changes to Logic’s look and feel and you’l be all set.

Installing Keyboard Maestro

To install Keyboard Maestro, grab the free trial of the Keyboard Maestro application from the Keyboard Maestro home page

Once you’ve got it, copy it in to your applications folder and open it.

If you’re using Keyboard Maestro for the first time, please check the boxes for both Keyboard Maestro and Keyboard Maestro Engine in system preferences, under “Security and Privacy”, “Accessibility.” These must be enabled for LogicEase to work correctly.

Please note that Keyboard Maestro is limited by a 30-day trial period. After this time, a purchase of a one-time license is required to continue using the program, and subsequently, LogicEase.

More information about purchasing a license for Keyboard Maestro can be found here.

LogicEase works with Keyboard Maestro version 8 and following, so if you already own at least version 8, then you’re ready to go.

Installing LogicEase

You can download LogicEase from the link below. this is a zip file so, depending on your Mac’s settings, you may need to unzip the file manually when you’ve downloaded it.

When you’ve got it simply run the installer and follow the prompts in the same way as you do when installing a regular Mac App.

Setting up Logic

There are only 2 things you need to do to get logic setup to use LogicEase

The first is to make sure that the inspector is turned on. You can do this by pressing i. Logic will say either Inspector on or Inspector off. If you’ve just turned it off, press i again to turn it back on. This is important as LogicEase won’t work with the Inspector turned off.

The second thing that is recommended is to display the Control bar in custom mode. This is so that LogicEase can tell you where the locators are set etc. To do this, open a project in Logic with the main window in focus. Uninteract with everything and then press Vo home to land on the Control bar. Then drop the context menu by pressing VO shift M and choose the Customize Control bar in display menu option.

Press VO Home and then VO right arrow until you find the first popup menu. It’s just after the Go to beginning checkbox.

Open that menu with VO space and choose the custom menu option.

The last thing you’ve got to do is to save this as a default for all new projects. So press VO End to get to the end of this dialog box and VO Left to the save as default button and press it.

Right, you’re all set now. Press shift / and you should hear LogicEase say “LogicEase on.” If you don’t hear anything when you press shift / then restart VoiceOver and try pressing shift / again.

OK, next up you need to find out how to use LogicEase
