    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Layering Audio Objects

    Okay, I get it. When I tried to create my own Audio Instrument on a new layer in the environment (instead of using one of the ready-made Audio Instrument channel strips on the ready-made Audio Layer), I was acutually conjuring up an Audio channel strip and not an Audio Instrument channel strip...

    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Layering Audio Objects

    My earlier files were created with Logic Audio 3.5, so I purchased Logic Pro 7.2, but I don't see anything in the manual about how to open files on a PC with a Mac.

    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Layering Audio Objects

    Well, I have to admit that I'm not a fast reader. I received my copy of Logic 7.2 about 5 weeks ago, and I've been reading approximately a chapter a week, so I haven't got to chapter 6 yet, and didn't know about setting the channel type. Thanks for clarifying the difference between an audio...

    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Layering Audio Objects

    I watched the video, but I had already figured out how to do that, thanks to Eli's earlier explanation. However, my problem is a bit more complicated than that. I will try to explain it as simply as I can. Try this little experiment: Open a new project. Open an environment window. Create a...

    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Layering Audio Objects

    Okay, apparently there are two ways to cable a MIDI instrument to a software instrument in Logic 7.2's environment. One works; the other doesn't: 1) Open a new project, and create two new tracks in the arrange window. Open an environment window, and, if necessary, create a new layer. Create a...

    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Layering Audio Objects

    I guess I didn't phrase my question very well. There is more than one kind of audio object. So, instead of asking: Is it possible to layer audio objects, I should have asked: Is it possible to layer audio instruments in the environment... just as you can layer MIDI instruments (as described by...

    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Layering Audio Objects

    Is it possible to layer audio objects with Logic 7.2? I know it's possible to play several instruments simultaneously by setting 2 or more tracks to record, but I'm wondering if there is some way to layer instruments in the environment.

    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Logic 7 + MacBook Pro = No Sound

    Thank you, Doug. You solved the mystery. Also, thanks to all the other users who took the trouble to read my tale of woe, and offer help. For the sake of anyone else who's stumped by this, here's the relevant paragraph on page 67 of my Getting Started With Logic user's guide: "Audio Instrument...

    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Is it possible to pay for expert support?

    I described my Audio Midi Setup under the thread titled "Logic 7 + MacBook Pro = No Sound." Under Audio > Drivers > Core Audio (Enabled) > Driver, I only have one real choice, which is Built-in Input. According to the Macbook Pro's Audio MIDI Setup utility, the Built-in Input is set to Line...

    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Logic 7 + MacBook Pro = No Sound

    Another piece of the puzzle has been found, but the mystery deepens. I discovered that I can record and playback audio, if I connect a microphone via line-in. Also, as I mentioned earlier, I can hear the metronome during recording. However, still no sound when playing back recorded MIDI...

    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Logic 7 + MacBook Pro = No Sound

    I have two choices when I click and hold the driver menu: Built in Input, and Built-in Microphone. I've tried both, and neither one works. I have three options for the Port parameter, and I've tried all three: Off, All, and "Port 1 (USB Axiom 61)." Notice that Logic correctly identifies my MIDI...

    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Logic 7 + MacBook Pro = No Sound

    No songs are loaded automatically when I open my copy of Logic 7.2. Also, I was surprised to discover that there don't seem to be any folders with demo songs and environments created by Logic users. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place: Applications > Logic Pro.app All I'm doing is opening...

    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Is it possible to pay for expert support?

    Thank you Mark. I've removed my email and telephone number, as per your good advice. I don't know what I was thinking. I guess it was a momentary lapse of judgment, due to my mounting desperation. Also, I didn't understand how your private messaging system works. In fact.. truth be told.. it...

    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Is it possible to pay for expert support?

    I'm in Walla Walla, the south eastern corner of Washington State, U.S.A, but I don't necessarily need on-site support. I'd be happy to pay any charges for email or telephone support, and I understand now that I can be contacted via the forum's private messaging system. (Thank you Mark for...

    Logic Pro 7 & earlier Is it possible to pay for expert support?

    Hi, Is there some email address or phone number I can call on for expert support? I don't mind paying a reasonable fee for immediate individualized help. Does Logic Pro employ paid experts? Or are there any freelance experts out there who can help me solve my problem in a matter of minutes or...
