columbasaurus Posted July 16, 2017 Share Posted July 16, 2017 i have recently moved from Garageband (both 6.0.5 and 10) to Logic Pro X, after over five years, and i'm not having a very good time trying to convert. beginning to wonder why i spent £200 on the thing. need help! i started to read the User Guide, but it seemed to me it was written for three year olds, and wasn't at all helpful. i'm not (yet) trying to convert old GB tracks to LPX, but i am trying to record new stuff in LPX, and i can't figure out how to do some very basic things that i knew how to do in GB. i would be very grateful if someone could point me at some useful info for Garageband users about how to use Logic Pro to do what you used to do in GB. For instance, when creating a new audio track, what on earth does "Prepare new audio tracks for immediate recording" mean? if it means what i take it to mean (i.e. switch on the red light), why would i not want to do that? why is that not the default? and if that isn't what it means, what then? and as for "I want to hear my instrument as I play it" - even i in my ignorance know that's called 'monitoring'. i don't get why LPX, which is supposedly a professional application, wouldn't call it that? And mono/stereo - why is it called Input 1 and Input 2 now? what's wrong with good old left and right?! or is that something else entirely?! (i have a third speaker for my 'Eno' channel, but have no idea how to have any more! i mean, where would they go?!) i appreciate some of my problems are because of ignorance, but that's why i'm looking for a useful manual, not one that treats me like an idiot or one i need a degree in music tech to understand! i am a musician of many years' standing, and have done quite a lot of recording in GB. even had a track played on national radio! many thanks for listening!
