    VEPro7 and the Logic Template with more instances

    I'm using VEPro 7 and Logic 10.4.4. I have created a VEPro template 4 Instances (WINDS, PERC, STRINGS, BRASS), and I want to use the Logic AU3 BETA Template. But the project only has 24 port with 3 instances. I know I could move merge my instances and then it would be fine. But I want there to...

    VEPro with Logic - Create a Reverb send with VEP hosting the reverb

    I'm trying to figure out how to create a reverb send in Logic. But I want the reverb unit to be in a VEPro instance and then on a track in Logic I can use a bus to send a part of the signal to it. From videos I've seen I've only seen how to use the Audio Event to switch the output form a track...

    Dedicated subforums for Cubase/Logic/the major DAWs?

    Based on this DAW poll, it seems that Cubase and Logic are the two most used DAWs among composers working with virtual instruments - especially Cubase, but that could change now when Logic has track disable, articulations sets and hopefully more features for composers/VI users in the future...

    Tip for Logic users with performance issues: Memory diag

    I've had some serious issues with Logic lately, and spent a lot of time troubleshooting. The main thing that came out of all these hours were mainly one thing: MacOS/Logic allow us to load more samples into Kontakt than our system can handle, and there's no built in way to monitor that. The...

    Buy new Mac Mini vs upgrade Thinkpad X1E

    I'm at a bit of a crossroads here and could use some advice. Up until this past semester of college I had a 15u server rack with a 4u workstation, a 3u VEP PC, a Linux server...It just became too much. I wasn't even using the VEP machine and plus the whole setup was a pain to move in/out of...

    Kontakt/Logic can't find my new sample drive even though it has the same name?

    So I just got a new sample drive. The old one was a RAID 0, this new one is a JBOD. I gave it the exact same name. Copied the entire folder hierarchy. I open up Logic and Kontakt can't find anything. So I have to sit there and re-point everything to the correct location. It's tedious and very...

    The new 2019 Mac Pro Announced! - Apple is back!

    The new Mac Pro has been announced, and I must say, it's impressive! I think Apple is back to caring about their Pro's. A new Logic Pro X version supporting super high track counts. A new 6K retina Pro Display XDR. For those who are PT users, high HDX card counts in a single machine (up to 8...

    Logic - static control for a track

    In Logic: Is there a way to map a controller to only and always control volume of a specific track? I have a Dialog track an temp music track (audio inputs from my video slave) and I want to map a fader/knob/something to always only control volume of each of those tracks. All of the...

    (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...

    A couple of questions for Logic users

    I'm new to Logic (but not using DAWs) and have a couple of questions: When I load a multi-plugin like Kontakt or Omnisphere in Logic and play one instrument on one channel on my keyboard, all the channels for that plugin light up in the mixer window, and in the tracks window. Is it really not...

    Logic's 'secret' way to deal with dynamics

    OK - so it's not secret, but my feeling is that many users aren't aware of this or focusing on it: Logic's Modifier (MIDI plug-in). This little plugin is very useful: You can set your mod wheel (or other controller) to avoid the upper range in your libraries, if you feel that they are too...

    Logic - VE-Pro - is there a trick to automatically re-connect after a crash?

    Using VE-Pro usually in de-coupled mode it happens from time to time that VE-Pro crashes (probably Kontakt is causing it). After re-starting it I have to manually re-connect all the 40+ instances I have going which is tedious. Is there a trick to get them to re-connect automatically? I often...

    Reverb Sends Logic - Best Way???

    At the moment I have my tracks routed to reverbs, through auxiliary sends, and the tracks outputed to a bus. Eg: Violins I Legato goes to the Valhalla aux and is outputed to the UpperStringsLong bus. The problem is when I bounce out my section buses as stems they are 100% dry I wanted to know if...

    Hi All Just wondering if I can slave Logic from Mac to Cubase on PC? Or do I need to invest in a 2nd PC and pro tools etc to slave picture particularly to Cubase 9 on my PC? I currently have a macbook with Logic which I dont use much. Thanks Kyle

    Logic Panning

    In Logic when your are mixing your orchestral instruments, what panning option do you use on Logic's track panners? Stereo Pan, Balance or Binaural Pan. I see by default its using balance. But doesn't it work better to use Stereo Pan?

    Problem with Logic Custom Patches (sends and outputs)

    Is there any way to save a channel strip patch which can: (a) 'send' to a pre-existing reverb aux instead of creating a new one (because I prefer a clean template, using I/O labels and avoiding duplicating the same reverb), and (b) remember the output settings of the channel strip patch...

    Free Logic articulation set for VSL Dimension Strings

    I've made a Logic articulation set for VSL Dimension Strings (full). Because Logic 10.4 cannot currently control the VSL matrices (which need more than one message to set the X/Y axis), there is a corresponding Scripter script which interprets the articulation IDs. If you use this with the...

    XFade Considered Harmful (free Logic script for VSL)
