Re: Triggering Drum Machine Designer from Beatstep Pro

No cabling is necessary, select the DMD track, and all incoming MIDI from your devices will be routed to and trigger DMD. Just make sure you're sending the right MIDI notes to trigger the appropriate sound.

Re: How to autosample a Reason instrument???

Ok, scratch that then.

How are you getting audio from Reason into Logic? Rewire? Or a virtual audio device? Can you insert the external instrument on a software instrument track, send the MIDI to Reason, and get audio back from Reason in the External Instrument?

Re: Question About System Overload Errors

Yes, you're maxing out one core, so you have a particularly heavy load on one or more channels. Firstly, in playback, select an unused track in the main window to make sure you're not in Live mode. That might help. Otherwise, look at your channels that are using heavy plugins, and spread the load ac...

Re: How to autosample a Reason instrument???

That doesn't sound like you're using Reason as a plugin, that sounds like you are using it external to Logic (ie Reason running as a separate app). Autosampler needs to be on the channel you are sampling from really. Try my initial suggestion - actual run Reason as a plugin in Logic, and sample that...

Re: Question About System Overload Errors

Single channel strips are processing on one core, so it's possible to have a plugin chain that exceeds what a single core can process, even if you have 7 other cores idle. (Equally, it's possible to use more disk bandwidth than your disk etc can deliver in the current buffer cycle, even if you have ...

Re: How to autosample a Reason instrument???

Yes, but what I mean is, you can sample Reason instruments with AutoSampler just like you can autosample any plugin.

Re: Any Fader goes to -71.2 (0 dbFs) when clicked on upon song opening

Control surface settings are global, not project-specific - you can remove (and then reinstall if desired) the control surface from the Control Surface Setup window, and/or trash your control surface prefs to reset things.

Re: How to stop Logic downloading Essential Sounds

Great, thanks. I have posted about this before, but no-one then had any working solutions either. How it should (imo) work (and is how it *used* to work in the before times): - With my external drive connected, see the full library of external content on the external (samples, intruments, loops, imp...

Re: How to stop Logic downloading Essential Sounds

Leave the Essential content on your system disk and then you won't get the annoying alert if your external drive isn't connected. If it were only that simple! Let's take just one of the pieces of content - Apple Loops. The system location for these is /Library/Audio/Apple Loops/Apple/ Currently, th...

Re: Control Surfaces / Logic Pro X 'sees' but does not cooperate Topic is solved

In the Control Surfaces setup window, is there an icon displayed for the Faderport?

If so, when you select the icon for it by clicking on it, are it's parameters shown on the left side (make sure the inspector is showing if not from the menu in the window).

Re: Emagic Logic 5 can't load included software effects and instruments. Topic is solved

In my experience, at least from memory (having converting all my old Logic 1.x, 2.x, 4.x, 5.x, 6.x, 7.x, 8.x and 9.x projects to LPX, but it was a few years back now), it doesn't matter for the conversion whether you have an audio device active or not. The project will still have all the audio setti...

Re: Emagic Logic 5 can't load included software effects and instruments. Topic is solved

Yep, you need an audio device active in the audio prefs, otherwise audio (and all related audio functions) won't be available.

Note - if this is just for converting projects, you don't actually need the audio system turned on/active in order to load, then resave, your projects.

Re: Graphics question for old 2011 macbook pro

I'm not sure as I don't use it - I just looked at the version I have on my system is 6.0.4 (current version is 10.3.5 apparently).

It looks like it doesn't require Mojave though, it requires HS so likely it should be ok on machines that don't have metal.
