If I press record and let Logic cycle through several takes (say 5), I get separate iterations (say 23, 23.1, 23.2, 23.3, and 23.4).
Assume that I like take 23.3 and delete all other takes from the comp.
Assume several days later I change my mind and need to revisit the other takes.
If I drag the resulting audio file (say Test.23) to a separate new track I get a long single file which, if played all the way through, has all 5 iterations. Of course, they are not lined up for any type of comp capability. (If the original recording was 4 measures long, I've now got a 20 measure audio file.)
Is there a magic command to get each iteration to become a separately viewed "row" (take) in the track and thus be available for comping?
Failing that, what is the best method?
I have, of course, been able to drag the long Test.23 folder into place (aligned) and record the particular section of the file into 5 separate recordings to a separate track, all lined up, but this seems very tedious and inefficient.
Obviously, I'd like the magic command that splits the 20 measures into 5 tracks of 4 measures—all inside a new comp folder for the track.
