Aux out with Ultrabeat


Recommended Posts

Hey all. I'm using Logic Pro 7 and I've been watching videos on Logic Studio and I really dig the multi channel settings for the Ultrabeat which entails setting up multiple aux channels for sub mixing. I don't want to upgrade quite yet to Logic 8 due to lack of cpu and space so, please no replies to upgrade. How do I set up multiple aux's in my environment and do I need to do anything besides change the channel for each drum in Ultrabeat or do I have to bus that track out to the aux's...if that makes sense. I'd really appreciate any help with this. Thanks in advance.

Hi mrdustin. Welcome to the Logic7 legacy club ! ! ! !


Go to your environment screen and select New > Audio Object

(it's right down the bottom of the pull-down menu of "New")


When you assign this object to be an Aux, you will see that Logic

always allows you the option of choosing one more Aux object

than you have already created. Ie: If you already have six Aux channels,

Logic will offer you 1 to 7 as the assignment for the new one.


You need to make SEVEN aux channels in all to handle the Ultrabeat

outputs, as the "Main" designation within Ultrabeat will always appear

on the channel where you insert the plugin. Your Aux channels are

for Ultrabeat's 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14 and 15-16.


These channels will appear in the Global Mixer when you select to show

"Aux" in the sidebar. They will be separated in distance in the mixer

display from your instrument plugin channel, which can be annoying

when you're trying to balance Ultrabeat's outputs in a mixdown, but there

is a nifty workaround: Instead of only displaying the Global Mixer, create a

layer in the Environment which only contains the Ultrabeat instrument

strip and the 7 Aux's. Make a separate Envionment window showing this

layer as part of your mixdown screenset and you have all your drums in

one window !
