I'm crossposting from GS seeing as youzeguys probably know more about Logic than the general pop. I just got a Euphonix MC Control and am transitioning from Pro Tools to Logic. I have a simple, obvious workflow for writing automation scene by scene. I can't figure out how to do this in Logic 9.0.2 on 10.5.8 Mac Pro: 1) Make markers for verse, chorus, bridge 2) Make cycle to loop verse 3) Suspend automation 4) Arrange fader values to taste while cycling over verse 5) Write current fader positions to automation on all channels across the entire verse 6) Repeat for chorus, bridge, etc. This is what the "Write" automation mode was meant to do. "Latch" and "Touch" are realtime automation modes for rides. "Write" is the simplest of these forms, and is meant for setting up initial values and writing new values across a section of a song coming out of suspend. Incredibly, the simplest automation mode, despite warning dialogs &c, is completely broken in 9.0.2!!!! In 9.0.2, "Write" doesn't write anything, until you change a value. That's LATCH in most automation systems. "Write" is supposed to mean "take current state of controllers and print it to the automation data." Dead simple. Doesn't work. First of all, if there's no automation data on a track in 9.0.2 (the line is black rather than yellow), Write writes nothing. Zilch. This they may think they are doing you a favor with, saving you from writing unwanted automation. Some favor! It would be as if "record" wouldn't record audio on a track where there was no audio already present. The combination of "Write" mode and play means "record automation from the current controller state." Period! No reading what's already there, and no skipping writing if there's nothing there. And there doesn't seem to be any means of writing the current state either. Write to End and Write to right locator don't seem to work when stopped (and I had some trouble getting write to end to work at all). I can't get my workflow above to work in 9.0.2 on two different machines. It's a total non-starter. I tried on simple sessions. You go into write mode and it doesn't write anything until you make a change while playing, and when there is prior automation, the first thing it does is READ the prior automation when going from "Off" to "Write", snapping your faders back to where they were. Buggered! How would you do this workflow, and what use is a Euphonix controller without being able to do it? (And btw, change the automation preference to "Write changes to Write" and watch the bizarre behavior as you write from cycle to cycle...like a harmonic resonance between prior and new states... ) Thanks in advance for your assistance.
