Re: Advice re:interfacing old analogue tracks into Logic

Mr Brownsound that is absolutely brilliant Sir - thanks so much! I'm not familiar with the concepts of synch pulsing / time-stretching but, armed with your suggestions, I shall do my homework and venture forth. Thanks again - master stroke amigo!

Advice re:interfacing old analogue tracks into Logic

Hi! Looking for some suggestions here ..... I've just stumbled across an old reel-to-reel machine that can play some of the old, dusty reels of muzak which I obviously made in a former life (I can't remember recording most of this - maybe they're not my tapes!) Anyway, the idea is to get them off sa...

In a mess with 3rd party stuff - HELP!!!

Hi, I've got myself in a right pickle this end and was wondering if anyone on here might be able to help me out. I'm running OSX 10.6.8 with Logic Pro 9 and, up until very recently, an Apogee Duet interface. Again, prior to very recently, the 3rd party stuff I had on my system was: '60's Abbey Road ...

Re: NI Guitar Rig ver.1 with 10.6.8 + Logic Pro 9?

ARRGH! I've just discovered that the latest upgrade (Guitar Rig 5) is for OS 10.7 or above whereas I'm on 10.6.8 operating system (and plan to stay with this platform as it seems the most stable).

Re: NI Guitar Rig ver.1 with 10.6.8 + Logic Pro 9?

Thanks J! That's a shame, yeah, I should hae checked but it was 'last one - when it's gone it's gone' & all that! So, do you reckon I should go through the motions of registering it in the hope that I can then upgrade to a Guitar Rig version that will be compatible with my set-up? (My set-up bei...

NI Guitar Rig ver.1 with 10.6.8 + Logic Pro 9?

Hi, would anyone happen to know if the original Guitar Rig from Native Instruments will run with OS 10.6.8 & Logic Pro 9. I made an impulse buy (too good to be true perhaps!) ie: an official new / old stock unregistered box. It's going to take a week to ship but now I've bought it I'm thinking i...

Weird happy accident with wah wah pedal!

Stumbled across this cool 'tone boost' thing. I record my guitar mostly DI using the amp modellers in Logic to sculpt my sound. To date I've been fairly happy with this arrangement but recently got hold of a Fender Jag and the tricks I use to get a good, workable electric guitar sound weren't really...

Forum users opinions sought: LOW CUT & HIGH PASS filters

Continuing with my 'Explorations In Equalisation' studies I have become interested of late in the human hearing frequency range spectrum and how to address my mixes in light of this. I work in isolation and, as a result, rely on heavily layered multi-track recording techniques to realise my full son...

Re: Crash course needed in EQ & COMPRESSION!

Hey David! I'm sorry man, I thanked Jarle but, prior to that I THOUGHT I'd posted a long reply thanking you along the lines of 'what great analogies' but it appears I obviously didn't!! OK, unfortunately I've got 'bass player's thumb' tonight and having to type with 'my left foot' so I'll have to ke...

Re: Logic 9 crashing with Kontakt 5 Player.Recommendations p

"Yup 9.1.8. on 10.6.8 is the most stable Logic Pro ever" - Lagerfeldt Just read this on another thread. That's what I've been running with NO problems up until I tried running the Abbey Road Drums software using the free Kontakt player - "D'oh!" So it's a Kontakt/AR problem then!...

Logic 9 crashing with Kontakt 5 Player.Recommendations pls?

Hi! I've been running Logic 9.1.8 on my OSX 10.6.8 Mac Mini with NO issues for some time now however, I recently bought the Abbey Road '60s Drums software and, in order to run it, downloaded the free Kontakt 5 Player. Unfortunately I've been getting crashes left, right & centre ever since! In fa...

Re: Low levels issue when connecting V-Drums as MIDI control

Oh yeah, of course! I've got this Abbey Road Drums software and I'm trying it out for the first time. I laid down three takes with the Kontakt platform on each MIDI lane but it's running really sluggish so that's why I'm trying to just stick to one pass.

Re: Low levels issue when connecting V-Drums as MIDI control

Progress of sorts Eric so thanks very much for your insight here. That said, I'm not out out of the woods yet. At least I'm hearing myself now (I couldn't hear the kick at all trying to monitor my last tracking pass and I really need to hear the kick to play in time correctly). I've just been back m...
