Source-Talkback plugin does not respond to its key assignment, or it is not possible to learn a new key
Make sure Pro Tools is given Accessibility and Input Monitoring access in the Privacy settings located in System Preferences -> Security and Privacy -> Privacy. See the following article for details: Source-Talkback Privacy Settings.
If you continue to have issues with key assignments, try the steps detailed below in the “latches cannot be changed” section.
Source-Talkback latches and cannot be changed
If Source-Talkback latches automatically when using the iOS application, switch to use the Master version of the plugin. Then:
- Right click the plugin for the options.
- Forget the existing midi.
- Relearn the MIDI.
Cursors issues when selecting a text field
If your cursor has selected a text field anywhere within Pro Tools, you will see a series of ‘\’ whenever you use Source-Talkback. To avoid this, press the ‘ESC’ key. It will return your cursor focus back to Pro Tools, which doesn’t recognize the forward slash key.
IAC Driver and Source-Talkback
In order to work with Source-Talkback, the IAC Driver needs to be OFF. In some cases, Source-Talkback might be stuck open when the driver is on. In order to turn off the IAC driver:
- Go to Audio MIDI Setup.
- Go to Window > Show MIDI Studio.
- Double click the "IAC Driver" icon, if it exists.
- Uncheck the "Device is online" option.
Pro Tools crash with MIDI devices
When a MIDI device is being used (as an input, a controller, etc.) in Pro Tools and users add Source-Talkback into a track, Pro Tools crashes. In order to fix the issue, try disabling the MIDI devices and reload Source-Talkback onto the track.
