Hi,

I am trying to disable the (external Jogwheel) transport control during recording, but can't find an option to do so.

I have a Tascam Fireone, which features a nice Jogwheel with transport control. Nice for "on the road" recording sessions. The only setback is: *whenever i touch the Jogwheel during a record process*, it will *stop recording* and discard the recorded file. aargh ! This is most annoying, so i ended up with kicking out my transport control during critical recordings, but it is more a workaround than a solution.
So, does anyone know how to prevent Logic from stopping the recording by touching a transport controll Jogwheel? Is there a possibility to record in a kind of "safe mode" where only a real "stop" command will stop the recording?

Any help greatly appreciated!

Edit: Additional Info: The Tascam Fireone is treated like a Mackie Control from Logic's point ov view

    Any idea what sort of message is actually being sent by the jogwheel? I mean, is it supposed to this? That it stops recording is one thing, but that it also discards the recorded file is odd, as this is usually a seperate action. I wonder if the message could be filtered out by a transformer in the environment?

    OK, so can't you "do" something in the Controller Assignments window? Either reassign the Jogwheel message, or assign a different message to "Stop"?

    Why not just 'not touch the jogwheel' while you're recording?

    Get a good old-fashioned wooden school ruler. The moment anybody looks like they might be thinking of touching the jogwheel, give them a sharp rap on the knuckles. That'll soon train them not to
