I have little experience of Logic and I am not a musician, but I would like to write canon. I am unable to find the tool which I need to progress. Perhaps somebody will be able to point me in the right direction. What I need is the ability to copy musical phrases into several identical clones such that modifying one clone will modify all clones in the same way. I do not know whether this feature is available in Logic or in other composition software. It is central to the visual software that I use.. Sketchup and After Effects, where the clones are called “components”. In Sketchup, for example the individual occurrences of clones can be modified in some respects, (stretched, scaled up or down, laterally inverted..) while modification of its fundamental structure will impact upon all occurrences of the component. Such a tool is exactly what I need in Logic to tinker with a canon by tweaking a note or two without having to worry about tracking down all the other identical phrases where the notes should also be modified. Laterally inverting would also be a useful, one click way of running a melody backwards, or upside down. In Sketchup the dependence of components can be broken by selecting a group of them and right clicking to “make unique”.. This makes them independent of the original component, but they continue to be dependent between themselves, until they are selected one by one and made truly unique.
This is exactly what I want as a beginner playing around with fugue...unfortunately I cannot find the tool which will do this. I tried fugue machine which limits me to the iPhone and only permits 4 clones without real control over where phrases enter of exit. Does anybody have an idea where I can find tool to do this ?... In another DAW if necessary. Thank you.
