Logic 9 How to automate recording: Multiple Autopunch

    Hi everyone,
    I wonder whether it would possible to set multiple Autopunches through the timeline; I hope someone may figure it out.
    Let's suppose that in an External MIDI track I wrote 88 or more midi events, all the same length and velocity, placed contiguously in a midi region at one semitone distance from lowest to highest with two empty measures between each event.
    Let's assume I want to record in an audio track the signal from an external synthesizer *, so to obtain single, separate audio files for each midi event. A sampling operation.
    Here my question goes again: is it possible to automate this procedure by setting multiple Autopunches for every midi event?
    This would help a lot, since I would just start the playback at the beginning of the timeline without having to relocate the Autopunch a hundred times and repeat the whole thing for the following 15-16 velocity layers.

    * which I correctly set and made recognizable in the Environment.

    Someone else might be able to answer more directly, but I'll just say that it looks a lot like what you want to do is what Redmatica Autosampler does, and it is now built into Logic X and Mainstage 3.

    Assuming Logic 9 cannot do it the way you want, and you can't use Logic X or Mainstage 3, I would simply let Logic record without punches, and just slice up the audio after the fact. Doesn't seem to me that slicing would take any longer than setting a zillion punch points.

    More efficient than this is to use strip silence that will automate the splitting for you if you leave silence between each note and then use the "convert to sampler track" function which works for the ESX-32 sampler.

    This video shows the process:

    I thank you both, I will try the Strip Silence function. Meanwhile, since simple slicing would take a lot of time I found useful the Divide Multiple function.

    To be more accurate should be fine typing manually the split point, and then let Logic divide in multiple regions - but I don't know if it is possible.
