Unfortunately the plugin settings are non-automatable, so I found a workaround: I created a summing track stack with the necessary registrations as subtracks, and I mute them when the corresponding registration is not selected (using automation). This way, I can even mix various registrations like organ stops (e.g. Principal + Flute) or use another ...

I haven't personally worked with Logic or Mainstage much, but the basic steps I'm outlining here seem to be fairly DAW-agnostic, and I have applied them in both Reaper and Ableton Live so I presume they work similarly. I'll talk about Logic here since that seems to be the more common choice. Concepts There are a couple of basic ideas you're going to use ...

It's because it's a summed audio track. There are peaks and valleys now that have completely changed. think of three separate waveforms with totally different wavelengths. Now, you imagine the peaks and valleys getting summed together. Suppose that you remove the longest ( lowest ) wave. Now you will have parts that are quieter and parts that are louder ...

Hey RobDel now I understood your answer! So here is it how my Sound engineer teacher told it to me: The most important thing when creating a full album with a cohesive sound is to record the songs in the same room with the same instruments played by the same players trough the same microphones into the same mixing desc into the same converters... The mix ...

The best way I can think of removing the vocals is splitting the stereo track into its respective left and right mono channels. After that, invert the phase of one of the mono channels and you will get the vocals cancelled out. The downside to this is that there is a high possibility that it might change how the stereo track originally sounded like. Another ...

If your aim is to simply be able to see the buss/aux tracks in the "Tracks area"... http://support.apple.com/kb/PH13024?viewlocale=en_US ...then you can make the "busses"/"auxes" visible in the "Tracks area". This can be done by going in the "Mixer" window and Ctrl clicking anywhere in the channel strip you want to have shown in the "Tracks area". Then ...

To move the whole automation, you have to select the entire area of the automation first, then move it. BUT.. This is a common problem, that pretty much everyone solves the same way. Do not under any circumstances automate the final volume of a track...EVER. In Ableton you drop a utility effect on the track and use it to do volume automation. This way ...

We call 'wet', the return from an FX processor. 'Dry' is the input signal to the effect. So if you turn 'wet' down and 'dry' up, the signal will pass through the effects unit unchanged. The reason many effects units have a dry/wet setting is so you can either use them as insert effects, or send effects. An insert effect is one where all of a channel's ...

Best way I could find. Make all your audio "follow tempo" The way to do this is to mark the region, and check the "follow tempo" checkbox in the inspector. After you have done that you can just change the BPM to the desired speed. Now, sometimes the "follow tempo" checkbox does not show up. I read somewhere that this is because the follow tempo feature is ...

There is a VERY simple way to do this, as I have needed the exact same effect before. Click in an empty plugin window, go to Audio Units > Apple > AUpitch this will allow you many many semitones of pitch shift with the ability to automate smooth changes. Hope this helps

Yes. The tape delay (as well as other delays) has an LFO that modulates the delay time, in turn this will result in a modulation of pitch. Just keep the output on 100% wet, but use the delay as an insert (not a send).

In Live, the spacebar plays from the start marker position. However, fn + left arrow (OSX) or Home (Win) should move the playhead to the beginning. If you're using a MIDI controller for transport control, you can double-tap the "Stop" button which will return the marker to the beginning as well.

First off, I think it's cool they didn't just ask you to make it sound like Transformers! But I think it's a difficult task because the sound in the clip is very stylised and not actually in very tight sync to the action. It feels like you hear more swooping/flying around and atmos than actual synchronised movement sounds, so perhaps part of the challenge ...

Take a look at the bottom of the Channel Strip section. Here you will find a Format button that shows if the track is stereo or mono (there is a two-circle icon indicating it is stereo): or Click-hold the button and select either Left or Right channel: Additional details in the manual around page 264-265. Note that if you want to physically change the ...

What are the moving green bars in the following picture that Logic Pro displays called? This is called a Level Meter. What do they measure? They mesure dBFS What is the smaller colored line often moving above the bar? This is the maximal value the audio peak reached What is the number scale Logic uses, quadratic? I'm not sure to well understand ...

A couple beautiful plugins for achieving this effect that are fun to even use in tandem for a richer warble: https://www.xlnaudio.com/products/effect/rc-20_retro_color http://www.psychicmodulation.com/echomelt.html I endorse both enthusiastically! And if you want some more grit and hiss, add TB ReelBus to your arsenal. It's designed to simulate magnetic ...

Yes, Pro Tools has something extremely similar. Unlike Pro Tools, Logic does not have playlists. The easiest way to look at a 'playlist' is simply as a 'take'. In Pro Tools, you can either record over the previously recorded region, or each recording can have its own playlist. Even if you didn't use playlists initially, it is easy to tell Pro Tools to ...

Use the Replace button next to cycle record.

Personally I prefer Boar for version control of binary files. That is the exact use case of that system - mostly used for photos, etc. On the other hand, I can also recommend you the git Large File System. That means you can stay with git syntax/toolchain without a need of setting up boar.

Took the above advice. This has been working great for me with git. Logic Pro X 10+. .gitignore .DS_Store Project\ File\ Backups Undo\ Data.nosync Autosave DisplayState.plist WindowImage.jpg Haven't tried it, but splice looks interesting as well.

I often encounter this situation. In fact this is how I bumped onto your question since I again have that situation (some 10+ back vocals that all need to be pitch shifted -100 cents). If you have the option of using a project template the best thing I found out to work is to create environment patching with a single control for a parameter across multiple ...

Logic's Flex Time and Ableton's Warping are conceptually similar, in that they're timestretching based on markers. In Live, audio is stored in Audio Clips, and the Clip View editor will pop up if you double-click one. Warping is not done from the Arrangement View timeline - it's done within the clip itself. If the Warp switch is engaged on the Sample ...

Does the Logic X Legacy and Compatibility content overwrite the new content? No. Legacy and Compatibility content is Jam Pack / Garageband / Logic Studio 2 / LP9 content. It is included so that projects created in those programs will seamlessly open in LPX. Why some other packages become selected when L&C is checked is beyond me, but in my ...

On the Pedalboard Plugin in Logic the Tru-Tape Delay Pedal has a reverse delay feature

The only way it seems to be possible is by using 'Tempo Operations', which you can assign a keyboard shortcut to. Although it's possible, it's certainly not ideal. You would have to hit your chosen command to bring up 'Tempo Operations', then alter the start and end values for 'Position' and the start and end values for 'Tempo' by tabbing through the value ...

If I am understanding you correctly, you can put a Scripter MIDI plugin on your Effectrix channel and accomplish what you want. The script would be something like this: /* Modify any note to C3 */ function HandleMIDI(event) { // listen for MIDI events if (event instanceof Note) { // if the event is a note event.pitch = 60; // change the pitch ...

I'm not sure which version of Logic you are using. I use Logic 9, so I'm not sure that the specifics of this will translate to 10, if that is what you are using, but I imagine this function exists somewhere within 10. In the top right corner there are two mouse tool options. The left is the primary mouse action, while the right is to create an action ...
