Re: Buying a used Macbook for daughter's uni Logic work

And, for whatever it might be worth, I have purchased almost every one of my many Macintoshes from the "refurbished equipment" section of the Apple on-line store! :) Here, you can get "the same equipment that you salivated over last year," at significant discounts since the gear ...

Re: About copyright

Please bear in mind that US Law presumes(!) the existence of copyright – whether or not the author "registers" it. Therefore, you must now do what's known in legal circles as due diligence. Start keeping a diary , starting right now: "On [Date-A], at [Time-A], I encountered [specifica...

Re: Logic feature paralysis

Re: Change Key from E minor to F minor

Actually, I think that you will find that it does work generally. "E minor to F minor" is equivalent to "G to Ab major." (Minor scales are based on the 6th degree of the corresponding major scale.) This is just a rise of one semitone. Other single-note transpositions might requir...

Re: How to crossfade a song

"Bounce in place" is actually a very handy thing which Logic has implemented very well. When you've developed your song to the point that you're satisfied with "what it sounds like," Logic makes it extremely easy to then treat it as an audio file. (And, since the "bounce&qu...

Re: Naturalising with automation Topic is solved

I definitely agree that ... "if at all possible, play it ." Since Logic Pro is "the penultimate musical word processor," you can always fix your mistakes after the fact and no one will ever know. You can do it section-by-section, making as many "takes" as you like, and ...

Re: Naturalising with automation Topic is solved

Another thing that very commonly changes throughout a real human performance is tempo. For instance, in virtually every song the tempo of the "chorus" will be several BPM faster than the "verse." (I've seen plenty of videos discussing video/movie soundtracks where the "tempo...

Logic sound outputs such as click-track to external device

I have a musical keyboard (a Korg "Kross 2") which can also function as an audio input/output device. When I plug it in, I see that it is recognized and that it becomes the default input and output device in the "Sound" control panel. However, when I plug my headphones into it an...

Re: M1 Macs, internal vs external SSD

I use external SSD's now because the puny internal SSD in my MacBook Pro filled up fairly quickly. (It's the only thing that I don't like about it ... other than a general lack of USB-C ports and that I have to use-up one of them just to provide power.) The single most important characteristic of an...

Re: How do I persuade Logic to auto-detect the bank names of banks other than zero?

"Well, now, isn't this very interesting." No one ever made it their business to accumulate such a list? Manufacturers didn't, either? Wow.

I guess that I "simply. assumed" that this sort of thing would by now be something that was "completely standardized."

Re: How do I persuade Logic to auto-detect the bank names of banks other than zero?

Okay, so what you're saying is that Logic actually didn't retrieve the patch names from the instrument itself. (Well, superficially it certainly seemed to.) Is there a way for Logic to retrieve this information from the instrument? Just curious now ... Or, are there available pre-existing lists for ...

Re: MIDI track and audio track are "paired" – why?

Ahh ... that's it ... both were "selected." So, the "mute" option carried to every "selected" track. Thanks!

[SOLVED] MIDI track and audio track are "paired" – why?

I recorded both a MIDI track and an audio track (of the synthesizer's output) at the same time. Now, I find that they seem to be "paired," in the sense that I cannot mute the MIDI track to listen only to the audio: when I do so, both are muted at the same time.

Why?

How do I persuade Logic to auto-detect the bank names of banks other than zero?

Magically, Logic knows about all of the instrument names in "Bank #0" of my Kross keyboard, but it doesn't seem to be able to do the same for all the rest of them.

Is there anything that I can do to cause Logic to load the names from the other banks?

Re: Bug or Feature? Importing Drummer track converts it to midi

Maybe we should toss this over to the Logic software-development team ... because this might be a very good new feature . When you "import an algorithmically-generated track," of course "it makes sense" to run that algorithm and to import the generated sequence of MIDI events. Un...
