"No Out"


Recommended Posts

So, I haven't gotten into Logic Pro much, but I know I will soon (school's out, which means more time to play!). I tried opening an existing MIDI file, but it won't play. In fact, anything that I put onto the interface won't play. I've checked here, and tried that, but to no avail. In the lower right corner, it says that there is "No Out," and I have a feeling it might have something to do with that.


Also, being that I'm a noob, I have another question. How do I access software instruments? Actually, this question is better: is it possible to have software instruments play whatever I want them to, instead of just loops? Can I take the tracks from my MIDI file and make them better quality instruments?


Oh, and I think the answer to this is a definite "NO" but I'll ask it anyway: can you input notation into Logic like Finale or Sibelius?


Wow, I got the program on an impulse and have no idea what I've gotten myself into!

Yes, you can do all of the things you mentioned, including inputing notation. But let's take everything back a couple of steps.


To learn, it's easier to do it one thing at a time.


Try placing some audio Apple Loops onto some Audio Tracks (it should say 'track 4' for example on the channel strip, in between the i/o settings and the pan knob).


See if you can get some sound out of that.
