i am working on porting your setup to work with a mac.
As a starting point, i used the MGO 1.01 preset.
I programmed my midi controller (FCB1010 UnO) to send the notes E0 to B0.
Recording the loops 1 - 7 works flawlessly, but when trying to make a mixdown on CH 8, the set behaves unexpectedly:
On the first press of switch 8, the mixdown loop starts recording.
On the second press of switch 8, the loops 1-7 stop, and a new scene is created containing the currently running clip (which is only the mixdown-loop on channel 8 ).
The clips on channels 1-7 however are not moved down to the new scene and the mixdown-loop doesn't get deleted....
What am I doing wrong here??
When examining your preset, i found out that in the "rec 8" - preset, you use outgoing keystrokes that differ from your original setup.
It used to be like this:
up Ctrl(x ) down Ctrl(v )
and in version 1.01 it looks like this:
[VK 1998844 X] Ctrl(x ) [VK 464945228 X] Ctrl(v )
This rises a couple of questions:
1) Is this a way to simulate mouse clicks?
2) and if so, is this available in the Mac version of MT Pro?
3) and if not, can the preset still function with the old keystrokes such as up and down?
What I did to make the setup mac-compatible:
I changed the keystrokes from "rec 8" to the equivalent mac keystrokes:
• i changed the "cleardown" keystroke to "command(shift (I))"
• i changed the "cut&paste" keystrokes to "up command(x ) down command(v )"
• i changed the "clear slot 8" keystroke to "up backspace"
Does anybody see my mistake? me needs help... :-/ after hours of fiddling around, my head smokes and simply doesn't want to wrap around the MGO 1.01 preset....

EDIT: Ok, i looked deeply into the setup once more and discovered where it goes wrong:
the translator "select channel" shows unexpected behaviour - it does select the track, but you are not able to navigate between the slots with the arrow-keys. I have no clue as to why this happens, but after fiddling around a little longer, i found out that when you press TAB twice (to go to arrange-view and back), arrowkey-navigation is again possible.
So i tried to implement two tab keystrokes in the "select channel"-translators...
Unfortunately, this didn't work out, because when you enter a "tab"-keystroke with the corresponding button in MT Pro, the program awaits a second, simultaneous keystroke.
The result always looked like this:
which translates to: press "tab" while holding "tab"
which translates to: press "tab" twice...
This seems to be a bug in MT Pro, right?
My workaround of the workaround:
In each "select channel"-translator, i added a "Tab" as last keystroke.
After each "select channel"-translator, i added as new one whith only one "tab" as outgoing keystroke.
Now almost everything works as expected.
Only one bug is left in the setup:
If you want to mix down lets say 4 running loops (and loops 5-7 are still empty), the "rec 8"-preset will copy the last loop (that would be loop 4) to the remaining channels too, ending up with copies of loop 4 on channels 5, 6 and 7...
This happens, because the preset instructs live to cut and paste the clips down to the new scene. If there is no clip to cut (as in channel 5-7), live will ignore the "cut" command and paste the last cutted loop into the slot.
We'll see if that issue can be solved...
I'll keep you posted...
