You can use a software reverb in Logic while monitoring via your interface. The reverberated signal will have a some latency on it but that will often act in our favour as the pre-delay.

Re: Latency

They need to re-invent the entire system to eliminate or severely reduce latency to where it's not even noticeable. Of course it's possible on the UAD Apollo interfaces, but their plugins only run on their hardware. Surely an Intel CPU with 8+ cores can do it, there's nothing so special in that box...

Re: OS X Update on older MacPro: Yes or No

I have a 2010 Mac Pro. I'm running Mavericks. I tried El capitan, but I can't stand the new San Francisco system in some cases on a non-retina display. Aside from that El Capitan seemed to work ok, but i feel the machine benchmarked a little better under Mavericks then it did under El Capitan, for w...

Re: Latency

Dealing latency is unfortunately one of the challenging issues of working with a DAW. It sounds like the reverb and delay plugin you are using are introducing quite a lot of latency. Different plugins require more latency then others, it depends on how much processing they are trying to do. When you...

Re: SSD4 crashing on LPX 10.2.1

I had this problem recently and during a tech support phone session with them they noticed that the name of the plugin didn't look right. It turns out that I had used LPX plugin manager to apply a custom name of "ssd4", We removed the custom name and SSD4 stopped crashing. From another thr...

Re: Custom names for plug-ins crashes Logic [FIXED]

I just discovered this problem the other day also with SSD4, I had used a custom name of SSD4. it would always crash. When I was on the phone with Slate tech support he noticed the name of the plugin didn't look right, so I told him about plugin manager and we removed the custom name, problem solved...

Re: External instrument vs External midi

To Bounce, i just create a new audio track, set the input channel to my external instrument audio input, mute the track, then record - you don't need to mess around with bussing them as it won't echo when recording if you mute the record enabled channel. that will work but you're probably introduci...

Re: External instrument vs External midi

I have been doing a lot of experiments lately concerning plugin delay compensation and midi..and the EI plugin definitely handles all of that stuff differently then using an external midi track. The EI plugin appears to send midi immediately, it is not delay compensated for the midi part...but the a...

Re: Solution/Alternative for Chord Track?

I agree with you, Cubase's Chord track is spectacular and I wish Logic had it. I haven't found a good plugin yet that really does it.

Re: automate Smart control with Step Editor?

Turning PDC off made no difference

This data was created in the step editor...which means it is region automation.

Re: Negative Midi Latency since Update 10.2.1

I guess the guys earlier on this thread are already working with apple engineers to figure this out, so hopefully that will come soon. It sorta seemed at first like it might just be related to old project file data being mis interpreted in some way, but then someone finally said they are having the ...

Re: Negative Midi Latency since Update 10.2.1

I just turned off audio pre roll in project prefs to see if that would replicate what you see with the flashing playhead. The playhead doesn't jump back and preroll anymore but it also doesn't stay in one place and flash like you reported, it just starts playing immediately but some audio from the p...

Re: Negative Midi Latency since Update 10.2.1

Yea its odd that mine is behaving differently then yours for sure! That being said, I just tried to replicate this by creating a 1 second PDC delay and recording some live midi using another mac program as a keyboard controller, I don't have access to real midi gear at the moment...but...no...my the...

Re: Negative Midi Latency since Update 10.2.1

All of the video concerning the playback of data is delayed. So that if you have 1 second of latency induced by plug-ins and press play, you'll see the playhead flash for 1 second before it starts moving, so that when it passes over an event, you hear that event. Prior to 10.2.1, you would see the ...
