Re: Playhead/Position Line Missing, Logic Pro X Topic is solved

How much you want to bet Apple did this on purpose. If there were a way to prove it, I'd bet you everything you own, because that's just stupid and there's no way thy would ever do anything like that. There's not even a logical point to doing it… but I get the sense you're letting out some frustrat...

Re: Oscilloscope for Video

I just recently created one in Motion using a tutorial I found online for inspiration, though I wanted a linear frequency band (EQ) look to it. I did spend several years working intensely in Final Cut Pro and Motion as a videographer though, so it may not come as easily as it did for me.

Re: Powering Midi keyboard from Macbook Pro

Again, the bus power should be sufficient to power the Axiom.

Re: transport white line

Looks like you're on Big Sur now? Likely that's either a visual bug or a response to some sort of Accessibility settings you have active (Display or Zoom, or maybe something else if there are new categories). Seeing as I'm not on Big Sur though, I'm not sure I can suggest anything further than that.

Not sure what you're referring to by "external drivers," but bus power should be sufficient to run the Axiom.

Re: Low Mic Volume

Yeah, that's bound to be the issue then, all the effects that are on the track. I wouldn't recommend recording with a preset. Some reverb may be helpful, but too much processing while you're recording and it'll make it harder for you to recognize any issues with your recording, whether that's low si...

Re: Low Mic Volume

Not as far as I know… I've got my Scarlett 2i4 sitting next to me right now, and the meters are lighting up even with no inputs set up in Logic or Pro Tools in the background. Same after closing both DAWs in order to install an update for a plugin. It's a gen 1, but as far as I know nothing has chan...

Re: Low Mic Volume

That's a strange issue then. You're saying you don't get any metering on the Scarlett with the new project, but you do with the old one? Those meters have nothing to do with the software, so just looking at the interface and microphone itself, those meters should be reporting the same levels regardl...

Re: Low Mic Volume

Actually, no green light means no signal into the Focusrite, so your problem is there. Two things to check would be the gain level of the input and the phantom power (in this case, you want it *on*).

Re: Tempo Change?

Easily searchable in the manual. For my money, easiest method is to open the lists on the right side of the window, choose the Tempo Event List, and change the value there. Note that without using Flex Time or some other retiming process, your audio tracks will no longer be in sync with the project ...

Re: Patch changes from Qwerty Keypad??-appreciate any help!

Umm, I'm pretty sure that's never been a thing in MainStage… But as far as solutions go, theoretically, the Jump to Patch command might work. You'd have to have buttons on the screen to target each patch, which would mean they'd need each a dedicated CC number, and you'd have to figure out how to ca...

Re: How to use a sustain pedal

The low-rent way to do it would be to use Musical Typing to record the pedaling, but the catch is that you have to record it separately (unless you can manage one hand tracking the part and the other hovering over the tab key).

Re: New M1 machines: what adapter for USB2?

I know a lot of people use the docks from OWC—a lot of people on here, even, besides just facej. Another heavy hitter is the CalDigit TS3, which I used to recommend in my computer sales days (which weren't all that long ago—there just weren't any positions with the company after I moved cross-countr...

Re: New M1 machines: what adapter for USB2?

I'm looking at the new MBP 13", but just noticed, it only has TWO (!!WTF!!) USB ports. Im always supportive of the future tech, and usually never a complainer, but am I missing something? This is practically impossible to work at a 'Pro' level. Agree. But, pedantically: they're not just USB po...

Re: Upgrade to Logic 10.5 using Mojave on 2010 Mac

So they reckon that although my mac meets the technical requirements, the version of Logic Pro that I purchased in 2013 is too old, and the only way I can get Logic Pro 10.5 is to buy it again. I think this might be BS, because when I'm given the opportunity to buy 5.1 from the apple website https:...

Re: New M1 machines: what adapter for USB2?

For more clarity (and to water it down a bit), with USB, numbers=speed and letters=connectors. That said, there are additional non-lettered connectors, like "mini" and "micro." Thus from USB 1 to 3.2 (which has its own AKAs), things get faster. With old-style connectors, the -A c...

Yes… with AppleCare. Your computer will unfortunately be too old for that. Never had to deal with the phone line outside of AppleCare personally, so I'm not sure exactly what would happen if you just try to call…?

Re: Synchronisation query

Also not for nothing but instead of taking a photo of the screen with your phone try using the built-in Screenshot tool (may also be called Grab, depending on your OS, or else just use command-shift-3 to capture the whole screen or command-shift-4 to get a range selector.)
