The groove track feature is incredibly frustrating.


Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had this experience? You set up an audio track as a groove track, and I'm using a drum loop as the groove track. I've added a midi kick to beef up the kick in the loop. The timing is still a little off, but the groove is there. I nudge some of the kicks 5 ticks left or right until the match exactly. Everything sounds great. I copy/paste the region with the kick and suddenly, all of my timing edits are gone. Even the original region reverts. The region that I did the original edits on hasn't moved yet it still reverts. Does anyone else have this problem and if so, is there a solution?

just wondering; if you're fine-tuning placement of the kick, why do you need the groove track active?

and make sure your region is a perfect length (for example, 4 measures exactly), so that cutting-&-pasting it, it always lands on the exact start of the next section...

Excellent question. The transient detect in logic is not always spot on. Logic will sometimes put the transient marker 5 to ten ticks before the actual kick transient. Worse, enabling the marker so you can move it to the correct start of the kick has no effect. there is still a faint outline of where the original marker was and that's what logic uses. You can't actually edit the groove track.
