MEAP doesn’t seem to do much when I run it!

This is most likely due to one of the following:

  • You absolutely must set the MEAP Key Commands within your audio application. MEAP cannot run without these, as it needs them, to be able to tell your audio application what to do. If you are concerned about losing your own Key Commands:
    Save your Key Commands first > Switch to MEAP’s Key Commands > Use MEAP > Re-load your own saved Key Commands
  • Check that you have set the correct Audio Application Series from within MEAP. Some audio applications come in a a number of versions. It is vital that MEAP knows which application and version you are using. This is because many things behave differently depending on which application you are using.
  • Make sure that Solo Selected Tracks is OFF – And any other Preference options that MEAP needs are set as they should be. Read more about this in the manual. For example, in Cubase 6 – Check your Project & Mixer Preferences are set like this (The areas outlined in red are most important):

  • Be sure your first track is selected and not in Solo mode.
  • On some Windows systems you will have to make sure you are running MEAP as an Administrator. An ordinary process (a process run as a standard user) can not interact with or exchange information with an admin process. So if your audio application is running with elevated privileges, MEAP cannot interact with it. As of version 7.67.050 you can now simply start MEAP by selecting the shortcut “MEAP (Run as Admin)“. Or make sure you set MEAP to Run as Administrator. You can do this by Right Clicking on the MEAP short-cut and selecting “Run as administrator”.

Run as administrator

  • In earlier applications you nay need to do a dummy export in order for your Export settings to “stick”. Read more about this in the manual.
  • Be sure you have no applications running in the background that may interfere with MEAP sending Key Commands and Mouse Moves to your audio application.
  • Do not touch your mouse while MEAP is running. (Actually there are quite a lot of times when you can quite safely move the mouse but it is safer to leave it alone).

It is always a good idea to read the manual and do a small dummy export to make sure everything is set up correctly.
