Touchbar controls in Logic Pro X on a Macbook Pro

macOS and Mac Apps

I've read about and am able to confirm that, when using Logic Pro on a Macbook Pro with touch bar, automation controls are displayed on the touch bar and can be read with VoiceOver.
However, I do not seem to be able to change values of those controls. VoiceOver simply reads their labels, but they seem to be not actionable, at least from VoiceOver's point of view.

Is there anyone on this list using Logic Pro on a Macbook with touch bar?
If yes, have you been able to use these controls or are we out of luck?

Hi Vic,
I have used my 2016 Macbook Pro touchbar but not often, and not on Logic Pro X. The touchbar can be customized, and Apple accessibility will be happy to help you explore the limits of touchbar accessibility and customization. Frankly, though, I see little to no advantage using the touchbar since anything it might have can be accessed from the keyboard where accessibility is best.
Good luck,
