    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)

    Have you ever noticed that while most sample libs feature dynamic crossfade (henceforth 'xfade') for expression control, many of the best demos rarely use it? xfade is an inherent compromise between limited sample levels and the continuous, within-note, dynamics afforded by wind and string...

    Recalling track stacks with Instruments in Logic

    Hi all, I have created some track stacks which contains various instruments in Logic, eg one stack with only violins, another one with only violas etc, and saved them. I'm trying to find out what the simplest and most obvious (if any) way to get access to what I have saved in all projects is...

    Hello, It is fantastic to be apart of an engaging and talented community. As an avid watcher of Christian Henson's vlogs, I was inspired to explore the world of sampling. I've loved playing with Spitfire Audio's; Olafur Arnolds' Chamber Evolutions, so I decided to try and come up with my own...

    Logic Pro Memory Leak?

    After having my template open for a while I am seeing that Logic Pro is taking up around 22GB of application memory while I only have VE-Pro instances running within Logic itself and those should not cause such a memory hogging scenario... VE-Pro is also using around 20+GB but that of course I...

    Logic System Overload fix?

    I am in the process of setting up and testing my new template. The new big change is that I have a new powerful slave machine with 128GB RAM. The new template now has every virtual instrument and sample library loaded onto the slave machine. My slave machine is way more powerful than my DAW...

    TouchOSC Help with Logic

    I'm trying to get TouchOSC working with Logic, and don't seem to be having much luck. I have setup my iPad as a Controller in the MIDI Controllers in Logic. If I use the Logic iPad template it all works fine. But I now want to create my own layout in ToucOSC to control CC parameters like CC1...

    Keeping track of ideas (everything and anything ...)

    Wondering how you guys keep track of your musical ideas (I'm thinking more chord progressions / melodies / themes e.t.c. which come to you as you are improvising). At the moment I keep coming up with ideas which I save in whichever project I have open at the time in Logic but that ironically is...

    Logic Track On/Off

    I am creating a large-ish template but only have 24GB RAM. Is having most tracks switched off by default a workable solution? In reality, does the On/Off button mean the track and plugins do not affect CPU at all or is it just a glorified mute button? I’ve read conflicting opinions on this...

    Programming Midi in Logic Pro X (cc 64)

    I recently picked up the Spitfire Labs Soft Piano. I have a hard drive filled entirely with piano VIs and am almost annoyed at how much better the Soft Piano is than my others. Except. For some reason, cc 64 sustain is a bit wonky. There's a threshold somewhere between 100-119 where if I...

    Sierra vs. High Sierra for Logic 10.4

    Logic's big offensive Tooltips

    Can someone help me get rid of these?

    Logic “Select Highest / Lowest Note” function - Cubase equivalent?

    Is there a way to quickly select the top or bottom notes of a polyphonic midi part? In logic this was possible with the great feature - Function > Note Events > Select Highest Notes (or Select Lowest Notes) which I used all the time and really miss. Does Cubase have a way to do this as well? I...

    MIDI Export issue in Logic

    A significant part of my current workflow involves exporting MIDI data as .mid files, but I’m experiencing a glitch. I select the region I’d like to export, and save the file. The .mid file can then be imported into other software, and the data itself seems fine. However, unlike bouncing a...

    Logic X - Is it possible to print stems with reverb e.t.c.?

    Read a ton of posts about this and struggling to find something definitive. Basically I have summing track stacks i.e. Orchestral Strings, routed to Spaces Reverb which results in a Strings Master. It is this master I am trying to print together with the reverb effects e.t.c. :confused:

    Basic Reverb Routing

    Hi all. With a large-ish orchestral template (using summing stacks in LPX), do you route Reverb via 'Send' or 'Output'? From what I can see 'Send' gives you individual control of Reverb but you hear 2 lots of sound (source + reverb) whereas Output uses 100% of signal and to my ears sounds better?

    Why slave Protools to Logic / Cubase Etc

    The most important differences between Logic and Cubase for use with sample libraries?
