Re: dBFS Audio Clipping ???

You can safely go up to 0 dBFS. You have to watch out for distortion that could be generated by other processes (too much limiting, too much compression, intersample peaks etc...) however keeping your mix below -1 dBFS, -3 dBFS, -6 dBFS or any arbitrary value other than 0 dBFS won't prevent you from...

Re: Missing Auto saved and revert to

Very sorry to hear about your issue Dr4k, these situations are utterly frustrating. :( Has anyone ever encountered this? In nearly 30 years of using Logic I've never once had a situation where I loaded a project and it didn't come back the way I saved it. Same here. I have seen my share of weird beh...

Re: Selection Based Processing Converting Mono to Stereo

That is: I could pull all plugs off a track, route it to a mono output, and get my stereo ass handed to me? How exactly are you normalizing? Are you bouncing? What menu, or key command exactly are you choosing, what settings? I tried to reproduce: here I have an audio track with a stereo audio regi...

I agree that it's a time consuming task, but it does clean up your editing. Glad to hear it makes a difference. :)

Re: trim - bounce - handles

Ok, I understand, however my question is, what goal are YOU trying to accomplish when doing this in Logic? Have you experimented with the Optimize feature I suggested? It trims your audio files to the region boundaries, leaving 5 seconds (in my example screenshot) before and after the region boundar...

Re: Logic Pro X going Out of Tune

I will try this later today. But pitch bend is in semitones right? No, pitch bend data resolution depends on how the instrument/patch is programmed. Pitch bend is a 14 bit message that spans values from -8192 to +8191. That scale can be applied to any semitone range the instrument (and the patch) a...

Neither. Just set your volume as desired using the volume fader.

Re: trim - bounce - handles

Not really. The idea is to BIP a Region which is part of a longer file, and the BIP contains the actual Region plus maybe 1sec at the start and at rhe end which can be revealed if I want to. Optimize keeps the region and trims the audio file leaving the desired number of miilseconds before and afte...

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

Usually the hardest bit in all this is figuring out the bank change data format, particularly if it's something custom, and/or dealing with the inherent bank limitation of the multi-instrument object. When necessary I have created multiple multi-instruments for the additional banks for example when...

we could try to build one together and make it available for download. Korg usually is quite good in documenting their stuff.

Re: trim - bounce - handles

Then I'm afraid I'm not understanding what you want. Do you mean that the audio file should be longer, but the audio region stay the same? If that's what you mean then no, that's not possible. What is the goal, if what you're adding before and after the region is silence anyway?

Re: Does anyone know why this happens? Is this a bug? Topic is solved

It's not so much a quirk, rather a concept:. It is however one of Logic's quirks that there is only one single folder object per Logic project (with only one single associated color, name, and icon) (and that that single object isn't visible in the MIDI Environment). The result is that if you have ...

When exporting MIDI to audio, is it recommended to manually set the volume for a track using the instrument channel strip volume fader, such as gain stage? or simply choose to normalize?

I would just set the volume using the channel strip volume fader.

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.) Indeed there's no way for Logic to retrieve that information, you have to enter it manually. What seems to have been retrieved (bank zero) is ...
