I have been searching detail video or article written about MOXF's DAW integration with Apple Logic Pro X for a long time, but couldn't find definite answer for few questions. I have heard that MOXF's DAW controlling options become very limited if Cubase AI or full version is not used, but to what extent? Is it true that only 4 out of 8 endless encoders are available for 3rd party DAWs such as Logic? Is Logic ASIO or VSTi / VST3 compatible? Can I use/assign all the track buttons, sustain paddles, pitch bends, volume slider etc.?
I found Logic a much cheaper option than the full version of Cubase considering the features I need. But at the same time, I wanted to use a keyboard controller trippled as a DAW controller, USB audio interface and tone generator. MOXF could have been my best choice but this limitation is a deal breaker for sure. I am now considering an AKAI MPK249 midi controller, Behringer QX1002 USB audio interface and Halion Sonic 2 as an alternative (Does Halion Sonic 2 offer Motif sounds?)
If anyone ever used the MOXF and Logic Pro X combination, can you please share the experience or provide any link? What am I going to lose in terms of control if I use MOXF as opposed to a normal midi keyboard controller like AKAI MPK249 that has 8 endless encoders? Thanks.
