Relaxing Ambient piece - Resonance

Well, hello all. It's been a while since I have had time and been able to use my synths to create anything, so this last week or so I have made an effort to work on this cover of Resonance, by Immersion Theory. I transcribed the music by ear, and used LogicProX synths and Omnisphere to come up with ...

How to create shorter 'Drummer Track' patterns

Hey all I have never been good at drums and often use the drummer track with Logic automatically creating the drums parts for me. I then play with the controls to adjust to my liking etc. However I am writing a piece that has some uneven time signatures within it, not overly complex, just a typical ...

New MBP - can I copy previously downloaded content instead of having to download it?

Hi All So, I have got myself a replacement Macbook Pro, which is a 2.9GHz i7, and I need to get all my sounds installed again etc. I haven't been able to migrate anything across because of issues I had with the previous Macbook Pro so I am doing a fresh install of all my apps on High Sierra. I can a...

Will upgrading to a SSD instead of HDD improve things? Topic is solved

Hi All Just a quick question as I am about to upgrade the main drive in my Macbookpro from 350GB HDD to a 1TB SSD and I am curious as to if this will make any noticeable improvement in any items within LogicProX. I often get audio playback issues within LPX where the system maxes out and wondered if...

Great sound overall but I would turn the vocals way up. They are totally hidden in the pads.

Pretty intentional Eric! My voice... yuk!! Really don't like it but I had a go

Cover of Excerpt from Genesis' Suppers Ready

I did a short cover of the mellow section of Suppers Ready by Genesis.  I always loved the chord progression in that section but I can't sing to save my life so please excuse the voice!!

Re: Help with chord please

Thanks to you both.  However, I am sure David won't mind my sayind... outstanding explanation Mike, thank you. So, that means the notes in the chord according to guitar tab site are: B D# F# plus the 11th which is E Still... on the actual track, I don't hear the F#, I am sure I hear a G#. Anyone car...

Help with chord please

I have been listening to Elbow, Any Day Now - which is an incredible track, and wanted to have a bash at it on the keys so did a quick search on net for chords even though I could potentially work themn out form ear.  The only one I can find is a guitar tab page, which lists a chord I can't figure o...

Re: Seeking guitar sound creation advice please

Ah drat, sorry about that folks... I am sure a version of it will be available in USA. It's the live version of Carpet Crawlers, around 1977, the one off the album, Seconds Out, was recorded in Paris I think!  I'm not sure he's doing volume swells, well at least not with his feet, as he is walking a...

Re: Seeking guitar sound creation advice please

Yes, sort of! Not quite endless, but one that continues at least without decaying too soon. The example I gave fits exactly i.e. Genesis' Carpet Crawlers live version on the album Seconds Out.  You can hear it clearly in this YT version, all through... but if you need specifics;  00:53 1:20 1:52 3:4...

Re: Making A Quick Time movie of Logic Project

B) I am no expert, but as long as you recorded your own version of the song, and were not making money off it, I think this would be OK. Others may be more enlightened than I on this matter, though. D) I use an excellent app called ScreenFlow, but I believe QT can record screen capture too.  And ye...
