[Ardour-Users] How to set up mcu control surface in OSX?

Going off memory the Mac doesn't need anything edited in the .rc file IIRC.
The build and install I believe sets it up correctly, but I will have to
double check that sometime.  I don't remember editing anything the last
couple of times I did this anyways.  Yes I am aware you need to edit it on
Linux but the reason is that on Linux you ened to tell it to use the raw
port, not the alsa-seq port which causes issues.

It sounds like you didn't read the part about using the MIDI Patchbay app on
the first time OS X user page.  You need to download the MIDI Patchbay app,
it can still be found on various points of the internet, and route from the
mcu port to the MIDI port and Back, then enable feedback.

Completely unrelated and should never be needed to get MCU working.
