Logic Studio apps Midi sequences?

Hi folks,

Anyone know if MS can trigger MIDI sequences?

I have it set up to play audio backing tracks but it would be nice to have a MIDI sequence playing alongside.


Cheers,
Robert.

Software or external sequencer?

I'm not sure about an external sequencer, but it might be able to be done if you can get the sequencer to synch up to MainStage via MIDI clock.

Obviously MS doesn't load/run MIDI sequences in the program. With its clock you might be able via Rewire or maybe the IAC driver to have a second program running and play the sequence back through there. I've seen post of people doing that.

So, definite advantage over rendering the MIDI file to audio and sticking it in a Playback plug-in?

Software - Logic, for example. ;-)

Thanks, I'll look around.

Yes, I have a hardware Novation Basstation. It'd be nice to be able to play with the knobs (ooo-err!) on stage, without having to play the synth-bass melody at the same time.
