Automating Bouncing Stems

Tue Jun 21, 2016 5:56 pm

I posted this as a reply in the Logic Pro section but I thought it might be useful for people looking here:

Okay here is a first draft of the stems automation that I set up using Keyboard Maestro. It's basically a macro of key commands for the stem bouncing process. It does require the application Keyboard Maestro.

Feedback welcome - my aim is to improve this process.

I have attached keyboard Maestro Macro file.

Great! Thanks for this.

Just wonder, if the same is possible with the Automator?

Hi Felix. Having just taken my first tumble down the KM rabbithole, I came across your yt video and love the concept!

I replaced the 90sec delay with a pause until the image of the "Bouncing..." text was no longer in the front window screen. That way if bounces are quicker or slower they still work and no time is wasted. :-)
