Add a control surface to Logic Pro — Apple Support

Some control surfaces such as Mackie Control are detected automatically when you open Logic Pro. You can add other devices that are not detected automatically using the Setup window. See the installation and setup information in the support materials for your particular device. Some devices may require different or additional steps, but in most cases you only need to select the name of the device you want to use with Logic Pro, then add it. When you add a control surface device, it is represented by an icon in the Device area of the Control Surface Setup window.

Although the Undo History and standard Undo functions are available in Logic Pro, try to get in the habit of creating backups before processing or editing. This provides a safety copy of your audio recordings in case something unexpected happens, due to a processing error or other unforeseen event.
