Re: Reading Logics EQ....

It doesn’t have to be a Logic file. Transfer the file to your Mac, compress it into a zip file as instructed on the link Jain gave you and you can attach it here.

Re: I accidentally hid the movie pre-visualization from my timeline and cannot figure out how to get it back

Sounds like maybe you've switched screensets?

Try this:

1. Press 1.

Do you see the movie track now? Yes? Great. No? Then proceed to #2:

2. Press G.

Do you see the movie track now? Yes? Great. No? Then proceed to #3:

3. Press Option-G, then select the Movie checkbox:

Re: Sampler Track Not Playing Back on Controller

Double-check the MIDI Start note pitch? Is it something like C-1 for example, which means C MINUS one, that's 2 octaves below C1.

Re: Sampler Track Not Playing Back on Controller

When starting a new project and trying to use a sampler instrument you had already saved before? That's what I'm not clear about.

Thanks Triplets and David - yes, I’m not clipping but I think I should probably aiming for -12 to allow for when I add more tracks and effects to leave a little headroom. As long as you're not distorting your recording, you're fine as far as the recording level is concerned: no distortion was creat...

If your recording peaks at -3 dBFS, then you're not clipping: the signal is not too hot and your recording is not creating any distortion. When recording in digital, distortion occurs only when you peak at 0 dbFS.

Re: The Art of Bussing

I would recommend you keep it simple and use only one multi-pressor plug-in, or even just an EQ and a compressor can generally go a long way. The thing is if you don't really know what you're doing then trying to tackle a complex set up like this will most likely result in sounding even worse. And i...

Re: Importing audio file in Logic

You need 3rd party software to do the routing. I use Loopback when I need to route audio in between applications: https://rogueamoeba.com/loopback/

Re: The Art of Bussing

Why are you using four different multi-band compressors to highlight different frequency ranges? And what do you mean by "highlight"? /what you're describing is not a commonly used technique, so I'm not sure what you're trying to achieve exactly.

Re: Sampler Track Not Playing Back on Controller

So does the issue occur as soon as you create the sampler instrument? Or after you save the project and reopen it?

The good news is, there's no need for you to know or understand any of this for basic MIDI Controller use.

Re: Can I delete these assignments?

If you choose Logic Pro > Control Surfaces > Setup, do you see any kind of device icon in the pane? If you do, select the device and press delete on your keyboard to remove it.

Indeed all drives used with Logi need to be formatted APFS or MacOS Extended.

Re: Does Logic Set Plug-in Output Quality To Maximum When Bouncing? Topic is solved

No, there's no such feature. Most plug-ins don't have a quality setting. I believe Alchemy (and Sculpture sort of) are the only stock Logic plug-ins that have such a setting.
