Rackspaces have a number that precedes their name but I can’t figure out where it comes from or why it’s there. Sometimes there are two rackspaces with the same number. I thought that it was simply a numbering convention, but there isn’t always a number 1, etc.
Also, I have midi input devices with numbers in front of them as well (i.e. 7- midisport 2x2 out). These seem to mysteriously increment at times, too. I opened a rackspace this evening and started with 6- midisport 2x2 out and things weren’t working even though everything worked fine the last time I opened the rackspace. I had to switch to the one labeled 7- midisport 2x2 out before anything would work.
I’m sure I’m missing something obvious, but as a fairly novice beginner, I’m a bit confused. Thanks in advance for any help.
