Change Default output for new channels


Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I've recently changed my mixing structure to have all channels route to a stereo bus I create before it goes to the 'stereo out' channel. This is so I can use sends on the whole mix. The 'Stereo out' in logic does not give you the option to use sends.


Is there a way to change the default output for new channels / instruments to something other that 'outputs 1-2'


Is there a way to change any of the default settings on the 'new channel' dialogue?


Many thank anyone who has the knowledge!

Just select the desired settings in the dialogue, and they will stick: next time you open the dialog, the last settings you used will be the default one, so if you choose a bus for your output, then from now on the default will be that same bus for new tracks outputs.



No workee here, David.

If I create a new track with Output set to Bus 1 and immediately create another track, the Output reverts to Output 1-2.


LP 9.1.8 on OS 10.6.8.



Not working here either (OSX.7.5 & LP9.1.8 )


Of course, as an alternative, there is the "New Track with Duplicate Setting" function, which does keep the output routing.

Ok sorry to hear that - it works as expected here in 9.0.2 in 10.5.8 (ancient, I know), as long as I don't quit Logic. I can close the project and open another one and it still works, in fact if I set the output of a new audio track to "Output 1" and then create a software instrument track, the default output is still "Output 1".


If it no longer works then CCT's suggestion is a great one - or you could create a template with the type of channel strips set up as desired then import them with the File browser.
