Re: Logic X Pro - Tempo and Audio Files

Your 2nd "fix" would be to indeed print the individual drums onto the tape, Then import them to Logic. Then you groupd all these new tracks. Then you edit them to MATCH the original Stereo drum track exactly, hit by hit, until you are done. If you have set Smart Tempo to follow the originally recor...

Re: Logic X Pro - Tempo and Audio Files

Have Logic's Smart Tempo analyse the imported 388 tracks and apply the audio's region tempo to the project (control-click on region). Set the project's Smart Tempo to "Keep" ("Automatic" might work as well). THEN import or record the additional drum tracks into the project. It should "Just Work".

Re: TOMB Software Update!

There's a little exclamation point button in the upper right-hand corner of every post.

That's the "report" button.

Does switching percussion on/off have any influence? Usually, percussion is triggered off the topmost (1') drawbar, which is the sixth harmonic, I guess. When percussion is switched on, that drawbar's harmonic is killed. I've heard of mods that restore the harmonic even when percussion is on, or tha...

Demux the frequency crossover and add Air to excite and invigorate. Careful on the routing, and go easy on the caffeine.

I've heard absolutely great stuff on a Kemper, and I've heard boring, nasal shit on a Kemper.

A tasteless player will be tasteless no matter what the equipment, and somebody with a cultured sound will coax it out of whatever he's using, be it digital, analog, expensive, cheap, old, or new.
