“… give as much details …” - okeee, that’s going to be some longer than.
please bare with my English, I am Italian native.
I was using Analog Lab V and now Analog Lab Pro on macOS Catalina (iMac) and Ventura as well as Sonoma on MacBook Pro.
My midi-masterkeyboard is currently a studiologic SL 88 connected only via USB to the studiologic Mixface and that one only by USB to my macs, hence no power supplies all bus powered. Unfortunately the Mixface and SL 88 power switches are covered by my desktop and horrible to reach, although it doesn’t make any difference to my problem / question.
Than there is the AI, a Minifuse 2, that by itself has no power switch at all.
So the USB-A plugs of the Minifuse and SL MIxface are connected to a 4 port USB hub, each port switchable.
That way I can e.g. switch on the Minifuse only and use the monitors for listening my music-library on iMac only, or switch on the midis and use the setup to play.
The KRK monitors are routed through a 240V switch as well.
Now comes the daily routine when practicing / playing e.g. on Piano V3.
Start the iMac, switch on AI and midis on USB hub, switch on monitors.
In Analog Lab I chose Minifuse as ouptput, the SL Mixface as midi and I am fine to run, play and practice piano.
As I tend to put my Macs to sleep only and do not shut them down / restart thee for weeks, when my session comes to an end, I put my Mac to sleep and switch of the KRKs. As the AI and midis are not used I switch of their ports on the USB hub.
Evening I wanna do another session and wake the iMac by a space-key-stroke, switch on the 2 USB ports for Minifuse and SL devices and … BANG.
The iMac has automatically swapped to Minifuse as standard Input Output device, fine. Macs Midi-Stuido.app shows the MIxface is running but Analog Lab doesn’t remember the settings.
Waking from sleep the internal Mac speakers are always faster that the Minifuse and Analog Lab takes first active as it seems. And same for Midi, when entering Analog Lab settings it shows always ‘Build in Speakers’ selected for Output and for Midi it displays the 3 SL Mixface ports but none is selected / ticked.
It doesn’t matter any order in wich I switch on the USB ports or wake the iMac, the moment Analog Lab is active and running, when the mac goes to sleep and wakes up again, ‘Build in Speakers’ is selected for Output and Midi none of the available is ticked,
Analog Lab loses the Output & Midi settings always 100% and reproduceble in my case.
Further input … data, pics, screenshots, video required? please ask.
Any help is highly appreciated.
