    (Re-)recording MIDI notes and dynamics in Logic?

    I've never found a good way to re-record dynamics/vibrato (etc) info in Logic. There's something with the workflow which doesn't make sense to me. For instance, I sometimes ending up with stuff like this: Also, both region based automation and track based automatons seem to have...

    Anyone using Studio One? I am trying to build an orchestral template with kontakt libraries. How do you deal with recording automation and midi cc like dynamics and expression in Studio One?

    Articulation Switch and Automation Level Jump Issue

    Having an issue with Logic and Kontakt 5's library in particular. I've been using Logic's new articulation feature to switch articulations within regions. This works 80% of the time, occasionally I'll have to jiggle some handle to get it to remember which articulation to switch to. However...

    Transitioning from recording CC data as part of MIDI track to Automation track in Cubase 9.5.

    Hi folks I’ve been experimenting with where I record my CC data - CC 1s and 11s mostly. I find that viewing and editing CC data in a Cubase Automation track is MUCH easier than doing the exact same things in the edit window of a MIDI part. However, whenever I record the data - whether it’s in...

    Hi folks, I've been having some serious issues with automation/MIDI writing in Logic Pro 10.4.1. I think there may be several issues I'm encountering, some of which may be a potential misunderstanding of how Logic 10.4 handles MIDI CC Region Automation vs Track Automation, and some of which...

    Behringer BCF 2000: Make use of motor faders?

    Dear VI control members, after visiting this board every now and then for years, this is my first post and it is a result of desperation. I've used the search function, but wasn't able to come up with a solution. TL;DR: How do I send the automation-data I recorded into my midi parts back to...

    Hi! When recording MIDI Strings and Winds we end up with a performance that have lots of modulation. I often want to quantize this performance, resulting in the MIDI notes being on the grid but the modulation left unaffected (see attached picture). How do you guys go about this procedure? Is...

    Behringer BCF2000 - Worth It? (...if it's cheap?)

    I have an opportunity to pick up an unused Behringer BCF2000 at an excellent price. I'm a Logic Pro X user who needs something basic for automation input (both for VIs and as a mix control surface). I'll be in the market for some more specific gear (Avid or thereabouts) in the next year or two...

    I generally have lots if problems with Logic's Smart Controls workflow. And with Berlin Strings, it seems more complicated than with other libs. When looking at this list (in Kontakt) when using BS, it is totally empty: As you can see in the Kontakt window, BS comes with CC3 assigned to...

    Anyone having any luck automating enable/disable of Kontakt 5 in VE Pro 6?

    Disabling Kontakt 5 from parameter in Cubase is fine, but enabling crashes VE Pro. Updated to latest versions of Kontakt, VE Pro and Cubase 8.5.30. Confirmed that enable works fine in Play and VIpro. Just not Kontakt. It seemed to work fine when I lightly dragged the parameter from .50 to .49...
