Logic Pro 8 Question about overlapping audio regions

#1
Hello:

If I have overlapping audio regions, can I set up the track so that both regions play at the overlapped part? Is this possible?

The reason I ask is that if I have a repeating 8-bar pad part, I often have to let the region go another one or two extra bars for the pad to die out. This means if I want to repeat the pad part I have to put an audio region on another track to start in 8 bars.

Thanks,
Dave

Yup-it's called a crossfade. It fades out of one region and into the other region.

Other than that, each channel strip has a single voice. If you want to play two regions at the same time with no fade between them, you'll have to put them on separate tracks.

Re:Overlapping regions

You might want to use the "Duplicate Track" function (menu, command, or button) - this duplicates the channel strip settings on a new audio track with an independent voice.

Thanks Orren. I appreciate the quick response.
