having a little bit of time, yesterday I tried to run Logic 2.5 in my TT with Log3 dongle, as i saw a post here and in a Facebook group from Edin Gadic,
where he explains that he has problems running it.
I managed to come by with 3 Log3 dongles.
I've opened them and I found that 2 were marked as Version F and one as version TT/F
On my first try, none were running, all has those kind of error:
I've tried from v.1.7 to 2.5, even Logic Audio.
Talking with Edin from what he has read, someone told about different TT timings.
So in my total ignorance in electronic details, I tried to add something between the Log3 and the TT.
Now that I think of it, if the timings on the TT needed the dongle to be faster, I was going the wrong way...
But well, let's stick on what I did.
I put a Key-Expander between the two,that expander has a white button.
I had to take out the Log3 PCB as the case didn't fit on the expander.
Switched for Slot 3 on Key-Expander, and tried to run the soft.
No luck at all.
Every version failed.
Then I thought: "haven't I a second Key-Expander?"
So here I am, putting two Key-Expanders between the Log3 and the TT.
Trying it again.
Ver 1.7 fails. It hangs, but no "key not found" error.
Ver 2.01 fails The same. It hangs, but no "key not found" error.
Logic Audio fails. Same "not a Falcon" and the audio error from before.
Ver 2.5 IT WORKS!!!
Well, perhaps it was luck, as Edin stated than he can sometimes run v1.7
I've tried around 10 times, always turning the TT On and Off, and every time it worked.
This was the F version.
On the first tries, I was changing the Slot number on the Key-Expander, but after 3 or 4 trys, I forget to do it.
So to my surprise, it was working, even without the correct Slot selected!
Then I tried the TT/F version of the Log3 dongle.
It also worked!
I tried the GM_Demo.log file that come with the software, and it worked perfectly.
The I tried the third Log3 ... no luck here.
The second F version, denies to run.
I've tried that dongle on an STE, and it worked flawlessly.
Then I try to run one of the working Log3 with only one Key-Expander, this time the one that has the black button.
And it worked.
Don't know why, as it seems it they have the same PCB.
Finally I've tried the other only thing that could seat between the Log3 and the TT, an Unitor-2 cartridge.
But no luck here.
As we were talking i saw that Edin has a Midex+, he tried that, but no luck also. That with the correct slot selected with the Cubase software.
I have no more TT's for trying, so well, here it ends my research for now.
I got them working, well, some of them, but Edin hasn't, so not all the happy that I could be.
