Logic 9 Synching Live audio with midi

    A few years ago a producer friend of mine showed me something and I’m trying to recreate it.

    He received a recording of a guy singing and playing the acoustic guitar and dropped it into Logic.

    He was then able to synch up the recording with the metronome in logic and it lined up beat for beat. Logic seemed to not only be able to determine the tempo of the song but it “stretched” the recording so that there was never a place where the click track didn’t line up.

    He was then able to add midi instruments and edit them in the piano roll.

    I had a recording session this weekend and have 5 audio tracks. Three for the drum kit (left overhead mic, right overhead mic and a mic on the kick drum), a line out from the bass amp and one mic in front of the guitar amp.

    Now I’d like to synch it all up in logic so I can use mid instraments.

    Could someone please tell me how this is done? A link to a tutorial is fine.

    Does anyone have any experience with this?

    Have you tried using the Beat Detection option?

    Thanks for your response, I gave up on doing this with these recordings. I went through the manuals and youtube videos and decided to just edit and mix without any midi on this project. I now have a fairly sophisticated monitoring system and we will be recording with a click track and doing one instrament at a time. Then giving the musician a chance to punch in on his mistakes. So everything should be fairly synched up on the next project and I will be able to drop in loops and do some midi stuff in the future.
