Re: Control Surface - Logic Control? X-Touch One or Universal?

I was trying to use logic remote on my iPad, it is well designed but for me I don't think it can be usable for mixing because of the lack of tactile feedback as to whether your fingers are in control of the fader. When you are holding a mechanical fader, you can tell when it's in contact withy your ...

How to Improve Lyrics

When I write songs I start with some seed idea or phrase or just the title. Something that triggers an emotion in me. IMO Bob Dylan is the best lyric writer out there at this point in history-- power, variety, and scope. I've ready Jimmy Webb's book on songwriting and have some ideas about what to d...

Re: Flex pitch markers have disappeared Topic is solved

I've noticed another problem/solution related to this so I'm adding here: Problem: Some notes don't create flex pitch bars/markers. Exact situtation: The beginning word in a line of lyrics didn't generate a flex pitch bar, but others did. The phrase had been made into a region from a whole line by u...

Tuning Software Instrument when not directly editable

This confused me for about an hour of my life so I am volunteering to prevent anyone else having same problem. PROBLEM: Adding SW instrument to Project started with out-of-tune guitar ( about 27 cents flat). Project is too complete to re-record, tuning polyphonically makes guitar sound unnatural. ( ...

Re: Ambient logic pro x

Mine is a loose definition of ambient, it's more me thinking of "Where does this sounds like it comes from" ,. but I have really started to like using sound from old radio plays and movies--there are thousands available on podcasts, some from the 1940s and even 30's. When you combine trad ...

Re: Green dot on track header

The green dot is essential for clean up when you are disorganized and have recorded too many things or change the time matrix so Measure 45 is now middle of chorus rather than beginning. When I overuse Solo (say 5 out of 30 tracks) then try to clean up arrangement(mute the 25 out of 30) so I am usin...

Re: Flex Time pitch Noise

I'm a pretty bad singer and need lots of correction, I've used both and I can see how Melodyne might be better but it's more cumbersome for me to use because -- I have to work in their window environment, -- the notes don't have the "handles" right there visible on each note, which I find ...

Re: Unsure about choosing my first MBP for Logic Pro X

I benchmarked an hex core i7-8770K 3.7 with video benchmarks ( not sure if exactly parallel) and it's only about 25% faster than the cheap new m1 MBP. If you can wait for the next larger MBP release it might be quite bit faster and have more resale value in 3-5 years .

Have they added the feature to play all or selected scenes present, one after the other, from left to right. I know it's an exotic idea (snark)

I recorded some regions, with about 15 overdub tracks all along same part of timeline along the same verse chorus block.they're meant to be individually distributed over various verses later. I then dragged all the overdub regions to later on the timeline to an "extra" area with a plan of ...

Here is a easier to use, separate icon version with 4 basic icon groups. GT DR KB VO plus generic non-group CUE and DEPREC (X) ; DEPREC is meant to be a grab bag of ? trax. I'm finding it much faster to recognize what's where, I can see from peripheral vision "there's an opened stack of guitars...

As I'm getting older my visual scanning speed is going dooowwwwwn. If I look on a shelf with 29 objects looking for the one microphone, it take maybe 1 -2 seconds instead of the maybe half second twenty years ago. So scanning the edge of my project for "Which is the guitar ?" Becomes more ...

Hopefully the geniuses that programmed Live Loops will grasp the utility for a songwriter.
