Applications :: Logic Express 9 With Midi Keyboard And Drum Machine

Feb 3, 2010

I have a yamaha mm6 keyboard which I have connected to my mac using midi, in logic express it shows that it is detecting the notes, yet nothing plays through the laptop speakers! I am selecting external midi when I make a new track btw. If I record something it even shows the notes as I play, but no sound. I want to use the instruments on the keyboard but don't know how to do this. Also I have a boss dr 670 drum machine and I can't get that to work at all in logic, the keyboard worked if I used a software instrument in logic. I want to also use the drums from the machine and things like it's quantizing, but I can't get logic to pick it up at all.

Applications :: Logic Express 9 Not Sending MIDI Data To External MIDI Devices?

Mar 13, 2010

I just recently purchased Logic Express 9. I am having difficulty getting the application to play my external MIDI gear.

I selected the appropriate track type (external MIDI), then selected from the library a MIDI device and channel. Logic sees the MIDI devices that I configured through Apple's "�Audio/MIDI interface� app".

This is my setup�

Logic Express is installed on an iMac with 4GB Memory running the latest version of MAC OS 10.x Snow Leopard.

I�m using a Motu Fastlane 2x2 MIDI Interface with Motu�s latest driver installed.

Connected to the Port A input of the Fastlane is a Yamaha P-80 that I am using as a MIDI controller and whose sounds I also want to use. Connected to the two output MIDI ports of the Fastlane are the Yamaha P-80 and a Roland JD990 MIDI synth module. In are correctly routed to outs and vice versa.

The Fastlane is recognized by the MAC computer. Also Logic Express sees the instruments I configured within the Apple�s �Audio/MIDI interface� app.

I am able to use the P-80 keyboard to record MIDI data to Logic Express for either an internal instrument track or an external MIDI track. The soft synths in the internal tracks play with no problem. For an External MIDI track, I see the data in the Piano roll view. When I play the track, no sound comes out but I see the output MIDI data indicated at the bottom of the arrangement window. Also my external MIDI gear�s audio outs are patched into an audio mixer connected to powered monitor speakers. So I would definitely hear the devices if they were receiving MIDI information. The MIDI indicator lights on the external devices are not flashing when Logic is playing back the data.

So obviously I have an output communication issue. Either something is not set properly within the Logic software or the �Audio/MIDI interface� app.

When I open up the �Audio/MIDI interface� app and click on test. I am able to here the tone when I press the keyboard which indicates the Motu Interface is receiving data from the keyboard. However, when I click on the port�s output arrow that is supposed to send a tone to the MIDI instruments, I hear nothing which is consistent with what is happening within Logic.

I know the Motu Fastlane works because I used it for a long time in a Windows based system. I have checked each wire and they check out as well. I have checked and double checked each connection and they are set properly. At this point, I am not sure what to do to correct this problem.

Applications :: Logic Has Self-contained Drum Program Which Allows To Plug In Drum Hits

Nov 18, 2010

I'm just starting to mess around with Logic Express 8, but I'm coming from Magix on Windows so I had a question about virtual drumming.I'm trying to figure out if Logic has a self-contained drum program which allows you to plug in drum hits for each piece of the kit (kick, toms, snar, etc) on a rhythm map, or if there's good software for download or purchase that can be used for this purpose.

OS X :: Logic Express 7 MIDI Options With M-Audio?

Dec 2, 2007

I am running an M-Audio Keystation Pro 88 MIDI controller via USB into Logic Express 7. I use Mac OSX. I'm going straight from the Keystation Pro 88 into the MIDI port of my MacBook Pro. I use a Pre Sonus Firepod as my audio interface (not sure if that's even relevantWhen I begin playing too many notes (especially after pressing the sustain), the piano (Garage Band grand piano .exs) starts to cut out. It sounds like BAD static, as if the MIDI were overloading Logic. I've tried changing the buffer size in audio preferences - it gets no better, only worse when I lower the size (32 being nothing but static).

Applications :: What Is The Difference Between Logic Studio And Logic Express?

Jul 24, 2009

Does anybody know what the specific differences are between Logic Studio and Logic Express?

Also, is there any place where I can get Logic Studio for cheaper than the $499 retail price? The cheapest place I found I was at MacMall for only $49 cheaper.

Can anybody find anyplace cheaper, preferably around $350 or lower?

Applications :: Where To Find Logic Express/Logic Pro

Jan 9, 2011

Is it likely? Aperture is a pro app and is on there, and it'd make sense if they also added Logic and Final Cut - it'd be like a professional version of iWork with the whole set.

Applications :: Garage Band Midi Keyboard

Jun 20, 2006

I have a cheap little usb keyboard that I use in Garageband. It sounds great but I have a problem doing drums with it. It seems that the bass drum is lower than my keyboard allows me to go. Is there any way of changing the octaves that a keyboard controls so I could lower down to the bass drum? I found the bass using the software keyboard but it is just a few notes lower than my keyboard goes.

Applications :: Garageband & MIDI Controller - Software Instruments With The Keyboard?

Mar 15, 2009

I have only just got a MIDI keyboard conencted via USB to control the software instruments on Garageband. The only problem I am finding is if I say, sample some drums, I can only play them back by manually placing them in the chord orchestrator.
What I basically need/want is to control the track (the part on the left) by a single press on the keyboard; so if I wanted 2 kicks to sound, I'd press the key twice. But at the moment it's just not registering at all, and only allows me to play the stock software instruments with the keyboard

Applications :: Logic Express 8 - Creating Noise Sweep

Jul 10, 2009

I am new to Logic and have read through many tutorials which enabled me to create a trance/house song. It, however, is missing something crucial - a noise sweep or build-up or shwoosh sound, etc. I need that "airplane take off" sound that builds up before the bass hits. I have searched google and have been successful in finding posts that help other users, but not me. I need a step by step breakdown of how to do this...meaning like a 10 step list of exactly what to do (every step of the way).

Applications :: Logic Express 8 Versus Garage Band And Jam Packs?

Nov 17, 2007

I hope I posted this in the right post.

I am finally upgrading to a MacBook Pro sometime around January, and I am as excited as can be. I do some messing around with audio, but nothing too serious, just things for fun and to show people, every now and then for a school project etc...
Mainly playing with samples and I'm looking to get more into it, and start some amateur DJ mixing.

That being said, I'm debating between Logic Express 8 and Garage band (plus several Jam Packs: Remix, Symphony Orchestra, World Music and Rhythm Section) since Logic would be cheaper.

MacBook Pro :: 13" Run Logic Express And Final Cut Express?

Apr 16, 2010

I really would like to get the cheaper, lighter, smaller, more portable 13" if at all possible. However, I need it to smoothly run Final Cut Express (I do some video editing for work) and Logic Express (I'm a full time musician). I travel a lot with my computer and my current 15" 2.16GHZ MBP has always been a bit bulky and heavy, and lags a bit when using Final Cut.

Will I get smooth performance running FCE and LE with the 13", and will it be a capable computer (keep up with updated software) for the next 4 years or so? I'd probably max out the RAM and maybe get a faster processor if I was to settle on the 13". If not, I'm looking at having to get the 15", any suggestions on which 15" model would be the best for me in terms of what I need it for? Would I be set with a lower end 15"?

MacBook :: How To Master Logic Express 8

Apr 16, 2009

I have seen a few videos about mastering and gave it a try myself. It can be done by clicking the master tab, then going to the Input 1-2 column setting and then clicking setting - mastering, etc.

When I first did this a few weeks ago, there were many options such as hip hop mastering, electronic mastering, etc.

Now, when I do so, I have different - much less enticing options and have no idea where the good ones went.

Software :: Logic Express 9 Re-Install / Get Back Original Demo Project As Learning Tool?

Oct 26, 2010

i've been using Logic Express 9 for a few months now and started today messing about with the included demo project "The Numbers Game".Unfortunately, I accidentally hit save on a change and now have fundamentally affected the demo.

If I do a re-install of Logic Express 9 will this wipe out or affect my other projects in any way? I really don't want to lose any of the work I've done so far, but would really like to have back the original demo project as a learning tool.
