  3. While Learn Mode is active, click and move any parameter in Logic you want to control (fader, pan, plugin controls).
  4. Next, slide your finger on the Axiom AIR fader, knob, or pad you want to assign to that control. The parameter should begin to move/respond to the control immediately.
  5. Repeat these steps for any other type of parameter you want to map. When you are finished, make sure to click Learn Mode again (so it is not a darker grey color).
  6. Not all 3rd party plugin effects and instruments will work with this, but many do. The previous steps remain the same for those.
