Picking a start and end [SOLVED]


Recommended Posts

Hi there. Im new to Logic. Ive been tinkering and figuring a lot of things out on my own. However sometimes I don't know the proper terminology to use in order to google search to try and figure out the issue. So Im hoping someone can help.


So my question is. If I want to isolate an area of a track. Lets say from bar 4-8 on the ruler. How do I do that ? I want to do this at times so it will continuously play that part over and over while I edit some things. Also, Sometimes Id like to take a part and convert to an audio file to send someone so they can hear that part.


What are markers used for ?


Also, how do I export the song as a mp3 file or wav file in its entirety?


Thanks for any help guys and gals.

What you want is to define a cycle range.

Click-drag horizontally on the top half of the ruler and you'll see a yellow band presenting itself. Logic will now cycle through the in and out point when playing.


Markers can be used for many things. One example is to define sections of a song.


Lastly. Bounce is the command you are looking for when you want to turn your project into a media file.

Perfect man. Thanks for the help. Now my next question is this. Currently I'm just using an Apogee Jam and the internal headphone jack for playback. When I'm playing the song and I scroll the track from side to side theres a fuzzy sound in the headphones. Any idea what that is ? It seems to only be when I scroll side to side during playback.


The next and most important question is the audio level. I noticed my audio files look louder on screen. It seems to be controlled by my gain button on the Apogee Jam. I turned it all the way down and it still doesn't seem to quite match the tracks that i recorded a few days ago. Im gonna include a few pictures. So when looking at the picture below can you notice the differences ? The tracks "US METAL 04.13 and 04.15" was recorded a few days ago. Tracks after those, "guitar, and rhythm#20.2" was recorded today. Can you see the difference in the wave size ? Im not sure if thats the proper terminology but I think you will grasp what I'm trying to say :)


Any ideas how to fix this or make sure that everything is at the same levels ?

Hi lorper!


Click this link to your signature and add your system information:

• Logic version and sub-version (e.g. Logic Pro X 10.2)

• OS X version and sub-version (e.g. OS X El Capitan 10.11.1)

• Computer (e.g. MacBook Pro, Mac Pro, iMac)

• Processor (e.g. 2.2 GHz Intel i7)

• Memory (e.g. 8GB)

• Audio interface manufacturer and model (e.g. RME Babyface Pro)


(most of that information can be found by choosing Logic Pro X > About Logic Pro X, and  > About This Mac)


Now my next question is this


Since this is totally unrelated to your previous question it is good forum etiquette to start a new topic.

I'm closing this one for the time being and marking it solved.
