Hi everyone, 1st post so please be kind!! I loaded Logic Express 9 five days ago, having switched to Mac just a month ago. I have a few queries that you may be able to help me with. Query 1 When recording using the built in microphone for some reason the input level is really loud and I can't figure out how to adjust it. If I was on a physical mixer I'd turn down the gain input. But....the weirdest thing is that it doesn;t record at this level. The monitoring is all distorted, yet when I play it back it's normal. What's going on, and how do I adjust it? Query 2 The Midi instruments in Logic appear to lost their settings. If I use them in Garage Band you get nice reverbs etc, but all this goes in logic leaving the sounds a bit flat. How can I ensure it still uses the same same settings? Query 3 This is similar to query 2. If I listen to a loop in the window on the right it sounds great. But if I drop and drag it into a track it changes. Again it appears to lose the settings (reverb, eq etc), but I have had some of them change completely, for example drums playing different drums to the demo. Query 4 I'm nervous to play with too many of the settings and mess it up, as it's all so complicated, but there's a delay in the sound which is really offputting when recording. How can I reduce this? Query 5 This isn't so important as it only happened once, but one of my Garage Band tracks wouldn't open properly in Logic. It was making weird sounds and came up with an error about compatibility. Any ideas? Thanks in advanced.
