Logic Pro 8 Copying data between songs ala DP?

DP has chunks and clippings, along with the ability to import data from other projects. I know I can import other environment info, which I had to do yesterday, but, if I need to, can import multiple tracks of audio and midi "easily" like copy and paste? I know you can have 2 projects open at once but any time I tried this on my G5 I thought that it would be impossible to work as it was very slugish. So, I haven't tried it on my intel mac. But, if one turned off the audio driver (once again, assuming you can like you can in DP), can you just select a track in one song and paste it into another track of a different song as long as they're both open? Just curious. I realize I can export audio and midi and get it in there eventually. Was just looking for DP like way to it.
Just answered my own question on my lap top. Turned off the audio driver, opened up a second song and copied and pasted no problem.


You sort of need to do it in two steps. First, as you've figured out, you can copy and paste the arrange window data between songs easily enough.

Secondly though, you need to copy the channel strip setting from the source project and paste the channel strip setting into the destination project. You need to do these one channel strip at a time, unless you actually save the channel strip settings as presets and then call them up in the destination project.

And I haven't tried this with the audio driver disabled. It _should_ work - but then again, lots of things in life aren't as they _should_ be.
I didn't try this between big sessions with the audio driver on, but did try it with it off and it was very smooth. I just remember when running L7 on my G5 that when I had 2 projects open things were veerrrrryyyy slow so my first thought was just turn off the audio driver while you open 2 things. It's definitely the way to go if you need to import some stuff from another song quickly!
