Midi and Audio on the same track?


deepee

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I've tried looking around and reading the manual and such, but cant seem to get my head around this. I open a new audio project, and layer my kicks, claps and snares etc. But can't seem to find the option to record midi. Can I have some help on how to do this. I'm running Logic 8. Thanks.

Well how come i've seen people had like an audio kick drum, and on the next track under it be playing there midi keyboard with sound? How do you do that. Much like this video.

At about 1 min 50 - 2 min 10.

 

At the start of the video he is layering a kick drum on an audio track. The kick sound is from audio that he has imported and then cut up.

Then around 1 min 50, he opens a jupiter 8 software synth on an instrument track. He hits play and starts playing the jupiter 8 synth via midi while listening to the kick drum that he layered before.

 

Without sounding condescending, you really need to learn the basics of Logic or any DAW before you watch a video like this. This video assumes that you know the difference between audio and midi. I would recommend becoming familiar with Garage Band (which is a free application that came with your mac) before jumping into Logic.

I just spent about ten minutes screen-shotting and drawing arrows and text into the pictures for a step by step. and then come back to find out you've found out by yourself.

 

Sam, since you've spent the time, why not post them anyway? That way if someone in the future does a search and finds this thread, it could help them a lot! Thanks!
