A friend has asked me to help him with his compositions which he has done in Garageband by getting them into Logic, followed by help with orchestration and mixing. I've loaded two of his GB songs into Logic Pro 8. I get an arrangement page and mixer that looks a bit like what I expect, but there are a few things that make no sense to me. I don't use Logic a lot, and it looks like this will drive me onto the learning curve if i can just get started. First, the arrangement page I get is close to what I'd expect; a lot of Instrument tracks with MIDI regions in them. But there are some things that make no sense. For example, there are MIDI regions that appear to be in the wrong track -- like a piece of MIDI called Grand Piano in a track named Asian Flute. (!?). Is the GB import a hit and miss thing? A best effort that needs a lot of editing, or should there be a strong correlation between the GB song and the Logic arrangement? Second while the project loads, I get messages saying I don't have EXS24. Obviously I do -- it came with Logic Pro, and I use it a lot. The mixer shows a lot of channels with "EXS24" crossed out. If I click on this, the drop down list shows EXS24 twice; once is apparently the EXS24 I don't have (because it shows no sub-selections) and the other is the one I do have (because it does show sub-selections, although it is named (EXS24 (sampler)) . Does this make any sense? Why is Logic telling me I don't have the EXS24? Is the conversion trying to create Instrument Tracks with the EXS24 loaded and set to an instrument that corresponds to the instrument that was used in GB, and not getting it right? Second, whatever sound EXS24 expects does not appear to exist. I have the complete install of Logic Pro 8, and there are libraries of sounds in my -Library-Audio folder, including garageband loops. If I attempt to load a sample into EXS24, a series of nested menus appears as expected, but no matter what I select, Logic waits a while and then says it cannot be found. This does not happen if I start a new project, create and Instrument Track, and set the input to a MIDI controller. It all works as expected under these conditions; I can play the instruments and load a variety of sounds with no problem. Can anyone give me a couple of hints about importing GB, where I'm going wrong here, and what I might do to get this exercise moving in the right direction?
