Groove Templates For All Ya'll Logic Freaks (Update)

Tue Aug 14, 2007 1:08 am

some of the classic drum machines and samplers (MPC included of course :roll: :lol: ) groove templates in two .lso files, in one as quantization templates ready for usage and in the other as midi sequences used in the quantization templates extraction for the first one, so u can have them physically.
a bit more detailed content description is inside the archive

update 09.26.2007: a new archive "Logic Groove Templates (upd).rar" uploaded with additional Oberheim DX templates and a single Roland TR-808 quantization template

have fun

Hey! Cool!

Tue Aug 14, 2007 6:08 pm

Literally just this afternoon in the airport, awaiting a flight home, II watched John Silverman's Seattle User Group "Round Trip" presentation, in which he referred to these, or something like them. He said they were "all over the web," but my Google searches didn't bring up any site that worked. And here ya got 'em!

Here's hoping I can install it all correctly. Thanks very much!

pardon my ignorance, i hear a lot about these groove templates, but im not exactly sure what they are.

is it velocity grooves or quantization?

He discussed only the quantization (unless I missed something):

"Round Trip Beat Making" at the bottom of the page.

Clip two, about 9-10 minutes into it.

How can I load the grooves into my own Logic startup template and keep them there always without them disappearing at next startup?
BTW...thanks for your contribution. I will download this.

the "tedious" job of extracting the templates i did already :)
there is an autoload.lso file in the archive with the templates appearing in the quantization list, hope u have already found that out
if u need the midis, then just copy-paste them from the second .lso file into your own project Arrange window

these only deal with quantization, no velocity fluctuations have been spotted

I really hate when I feel like I'm an asking a stupid question..but..wth...

I've spent a lot of time creating a new 'default' template for my Logic 8 rig..How do I get the quantize templates from your files into mine?

step by step..I'm feeling rather lame today. :)

sure does seem to me that this is a weird 'coding' issue for Logic..Shouldn't all these kinds of files be located in one universal place like

~\library\application support\logic?????? Just seems like that would make more sense...

really have no idea how this all works on Mac in Logic 8, i compiled these on PC in Logic 5.3, but to my understanding u should just use the autoload file included in the archive, although i'm not sure it's compatible with Mac and/or Logic 8
i'm not aware of a method of transfering templates from one file into another, other than just using the midi sequences (also included) and extracting the templates from them in a new file. In Logic 5.3 the templates are stored within the project file itself
since so far no one has reported any problems using these with newer versions of Logic i assume they work, maybe Logic 8 users could help

Updated:

This is how i manage to have the quantize files working in Logic 8.

1) Startup your custom template.
2) Go to File menu, open Drum Machines MIDI Groove Templates.lso. Drag the Midi files to your custom template arrange window.
3) You can pack them into a folder and on the Option menu, select groove templates and make groove templates. All the quantize will appear on your MIDI THRU box.
4) Lastly, hide the folder.
Save i as template and everytime you launch Logic 8, the midi quantize will be there.

Cheers

Groove Templates For All Ya'll Logic Freaks (UPDATE)

Tue Nov 13, 2007 5:55 am

Hi, this is my first post here, I've been looking for these templates forever! I can import them to Logic 8 no problem and they work fine under the original .lso, but as soon as I save the file as a template (having edited it to my specifications) all the quantize options disappear! I guess i'll take the long route as explained above...Thanks for the workaround..

make sure to check out pg 461/462 in the Logic 8 manual.

Ok..ya'll feel free to open up the L8 file here and tell me if it's working for you. I'm heading over to the SUGGESTIONS PAGE now..

Hey dkgross,

I tried out your template and does work. I have updated my post in making the quantize work for Logic 8 (up 4 post). I read on your suggestion page and i totally agree with you that these should have a library instead of scrolling the 100 list to find the quantize we want.

Thanks Dave.

Cheers

Anyway, i complied all the Midi quantize and made it to Logic 8 template. Here's the MIDI Groove Template for Logic 8.
