Hey everyone, my name is Beau. I have been writing songs for the past 12 years and during my summer break i wanted to record a demo so i can start networking my music. I have a mac book pro 2.4 core 2 duo with 2 gigs of ram. os x 10.6.3. i have a fast track pro A.I. and an m-audio axiom 49. I am using logic 8, and i'm having some serious issues with..... well everything. Let me clarify. Logic 8 is eating away at my soul. I've spent the past week doing nothing but reading manuals/forums/FAQ's (adult A.d.d. doesn't help) that i just want to crawl into a corner and cry. Everyone is explaining these complex banks and multi instruments and how to do all this complex stuff, but i can't find anything on just using logic as a glorified Garage band(with the fun soft synths.) I just want to be able to record acoustic & electric guitar, my keyboard(without the banks n stuff, if i want to switch from a piano to a violin, i'll just click it), use the 9 faders as track volumes, and the pads for recording drums. I won't be using any of this for live preforming. please help me haha. Thank you very much.
