Re: Logic Pro 10.7 with Spatial Audio announced!

Hi! Found this about Stream Deck. Hope this helps! https://freepctech.com/gaming/how-to-stop-steam-from-opening-on-startup/ Oh sorry, it’s for Steam Deck rather than Stream Deck . I’ll let you know if I find something for Stream Deck. Update: Ok, for something called Stream Deck, it should be the s...

To Stop Avid Link from starting at boot: In the terminal do: sudo defaults write /Library/LaunchAgents/com.avid.avidlink.plist RunAtLoad -boolean false To again allow Avid Link to start at boot, run the same command again, changing the “false” to “true”. Oh. my. GOD thanks so much for this. Avid Li...

Re: Finding chords for a melody

Sure, the script may be using the same pitch set, but it’s plain to hear the D hammering away as the tonic. I’m not one to gatekeep against generative music, but computers don’t understand music theory or ear training. That track is in D minor. The chords 1-2-5-6, 1-2-5 and 1-3-5 are constructed fr...

I don't have an M1 but presumably one can use the Touch Bar just the same as on an Intel Mac? The Touch Bar is the Touch Bar; the chip inside should be irrelevant.

Re: Crashing when converting files from 48 to 44.1

Since there was the case but no answer around, i literally was sure that this was all about software. The system update didn't do anything, but updating logic solved it (i updated the osx just to be able to upgrade logic btw). Apparently some versions don't work with each other. Some versions… of L...

Re: Setting the downbeat to a certain frame.

It was screwing me up when it would take the video previous to bar 3 and basically chop it off (or put it before zero if that makes sense) and of course I found myself having to zoom out to find my cursor again. Ahhh got it. Yeah, Logic makes the changes in real time (as opposed to Pro Tools, which...

Re: Track/Region Colors Changing Automatically From MusicXML Import

Well, no, that took a turn but I think I figured out the "why" of it. Opened the mixer to start assigning sample instruments and it turns out that there are way less channels than there should be. Looks like all the matching "1"s, "2"s, and "3"s were created a...

Track/Region Colors Changing Automatically From MusicXML Import

Hey all, This is a really niche question but I thought it might be worth asking if there's a workaround. I have a score I did in Finale about a year and a half ago, from a time when I wasn't as clever about my score design/formatting. Long story short there, I have several staves that are labeled si...

Re: Scaling Score window doesn't work anymore Topic is solved

Thanks for that point of view. How did you manage to master the scoring possibilities of Logic Pro ? Trial and error, YouTube and this forum ? I'm still trying to find out if David Nahmani's book covers deeply the scoring aspect of Logic Pro... Come to think of it, if not David's book (though I don...

Re: Track Pause Times on albums ???

I can't speak to vinyl, but I do recall that WaveBurner's default was a two second gap between tracks.

Same for Roxio Toast, I think, though I only used that for my brief stint in videography to mass duplicate DVDs.

I don’t agree - I am getting a degree from Berkee in music theory and composition - all of my work is notated in logic - it is deep to learn but the rewards are great ! There has been nothing I have not been able to help people with, score or motte in logic - I used finale and switch to logic - thi...

Re: Scaling Score window doesn't work anymore Topic is solved

From someone studying scoring: Really need to use something meant to handle notation still, and probably forever more. EDIT: Just realized you didn't mean "scoring" scoring. In that context: for simple things, one might get away with using Logic, but I'd liken it to using a car engine to c...

Re: Missing Input Monitoring Button

Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure the Input Monitoring button disappears for inputs/outputs that introduce such high latency (namely, wireless devices, like Bluetooth headphones) that input monitoring isn't feasible. When I/O is in parentheses in Logic, it's because that's the device that'...

Remember the days when everything was going onto CDs, and WaveBurner would handle that intercessory interval for us? Those were the days.

Re: Setting the downbeat to a certain frame.

The second line is grayed out because that's for enabling the offset. As far as we know thus far, you don't need it, so don't worry about that for now. (It's disabled until you check the box to enable the offset, anyway.) Shortcut answer: the time in the upper left corner of your Display is what you...

Re: Setting the downbeat to a certain frame.

There's a lot of differing opinions on here, but generally I do one project per cue as well. Go to File > Project Settings > Synchronization… and there you can specify which bar/beat you want to be synced at a given SMPTE location. For instance, for a bit of headroom before the start of the cue, you...

You're talking about the start of the cue, right? Or do you mean a change in the middle of the cue?
