    Hi Basil, look at my settings here (Flex6500 and SmartSDR Marc (fantastic!), MacLogger DX (fantastic!) and Fldigi.

    Best results in decoding CW are obtained with pitch around 600 and with APF on (noise reduction Audio Peaking Filter).

    For audio I use Loopback.

    See screenshots…

    I want to use my Maestro and FLDigi running on my Mac.

    I do not recognize the Flex CAT window you show in your configuration screenshot. I have tried using xCat and so far no success.

    In your example, what Flex Client and CAT software are you using? Any suggestions how to interface a Maestro Flex Cient with FLDigi on a Mac?

    Jean-Luc -


    Thanks for these setup instructions, they worked perfectly for me! I haven't been on PSK31 for a few years, and now I'm back up and running completely native in macOS Big Sur.


    Love SSDR for Mac!!!

    -------------

    I do this all the time, Alan, albeit with a 6600M, not a Maestro, but the concept is exactly the same. The Maestro is the GUI and "owns" the slices. I use xCat and xDax + Loopback on the Mac to connect to the instance controlled by the "M" front panel. Works like a charm, with up to two slices for two different digital programs (including Winlink Express in a Win10 VM).

    I am still using v.2 SSDR because i want reliable profiles and a functioning ATU.

    Thanks.

    Could you also show a screenshot of your Mac FLDigi rig configuration page?

    Sorry about the large size of the screenshots - seems the monitor res I use (4K) results in lots of bits :-( Slice B in use here.

    To Alan

    Sorry, I was away from my shack the last few days. Have you solved your problem? I think Ted's explanations are very helpful!

    For the moment with the Flex6500 I use (I don't have a Maestro, I'm still hesitating):

    - Mario xCat https://dl3lsm.blogspot.com/p/downloads.html

    - LoopBack https://rogueamoeba.com/loopback/

    - Fldigi for Mac http://www.w1hkj.com/

    - Wsjt-x http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/wsjtx.html

    - JT-Bridge http://jt-bridge.eller.nu/downloads/

    - RUMlogNG https://dl2rum.de/rumsoft/RUMLog.html

    or (between the two my heart swings!)

    - MacLoggerDX https://dogparksoftware.com/MacLoggerDX.html

    - SmartSDR for Mac https://roskosch.de/smartsdr-for-mac/

    Everything works perfectly here, although I would like to have more specialized applications than FLdigi for RTTY. For CW, an application like CW Skimmer is also missing (but this would be harmful to my level of CW which I would like to improve during the next 100 years!) :-)
