just out of the oven. synth only...i was afraid how it would turn out but the mastering tentative kind of corrected a few annoyance. lesson number one: kik and harmony need to be mastered separately...now comments are more than welcome.

I'm not sure of what i want when i'm working or where i'm going... i kinda go with what the machine spits out. but your right there's some eq to do on the high end and on the mix stage it was more annoying than that. listening to it again i think there just a few sounds that needs to be tamed..and the kik..well that one is garbage.

Neat track aqua. This one's in the playlist now. I like the absence of a kick and snare personally, so I wouldn't worry too much about the kick. Some percussive sounds struck me as scratchy, but not in a bad way. These percussive sounds contrast very well to the spacey pads in the background, so I'd not change them (just fix whats bothering you with it).

Thanks for listening. It was done with the instruments in Logic 7. The more i play with them the more i find how much they can't do what the XT and the Ultra can do in term of amplitude and pitch modulation.
--
i recently bought a m-audio usb midi interface..is it me or midi over usb is simply not tight. anyway that case is closed. the G3 with the old serial macman interface is way more precise..that little thing better not break.

thanks again

when you say XT I guess you mean the Waldorf XT and what about this "Ultra" Question

I have that big Steinberg 1 U Midex thingie. It uses USB. I am mainly using that one with the dual 1.2 ghz G4. Midi timing is OK, but not what I would call great. However it is far better than how I remember midi timing from way back in the 80s.

well...the emagic driver is needed in case you use their midi interfaces but as Stein says I wouldn't touch it Very Happy

The Emagic USB drivers should be left alone. Apple might suddenly decide to update/patch it.. and now they have made a kind of integration of Garageband with the Logic products. Unless you really know what you are doing and why.... leave those files alone Very Happy

Thanks. i taught the emagicusb driver was only needed if you had an emagic interface. maybe this driver interfere with the m-audio one...i don't know..timing is not there. the 1/4 note is kind of slightly different all the time. its not so bad but when i used the g3 i saw the difference right away..upgrades Question Question waiting for tiger.

Hmm... if the 64s are going Steve Reich in ya.. then I guess you should check the Logic settings. That app is deep. Carlo s probably an excellent diver.

i'm gonna look around again..it's the interface because the timing is fine when using an internal instrument.

I tend to use a hardware MIDI clock with my system (I use a PC though). Software, in my mind, is too un-dependable (kernel interrupts, USB driver, USB physical, etc.) for generating a clock, so I sync software to external clocks, then calibrate for latencies. Audio has timed DMAs & buffers, so it is made to be accurate, but MIDI drivers are entirely software driven...very bad.

I have the Emagic AMT8 on USB...which is *supposed* to get really great timing under Logic (It more or less pre-loads the midi data to the AMT8, then sends it out when a clock arrives). I have never used it with Logic, so I think it reverts to a "standard" mode, which would be like any other interface. Timing doesn't seem bad, but like I said, I tend to have my software sync to my hardware.

So, in short, try using a hardware clock if you've got one, and sync Logic to that.

good idea. That might do the trick.

Carlo. There's one thing i find very annoying with Logic. Say you input midi note for a bassline with the mouse. If you go back and work on the drum part the lenght and the velocity info of the previous note is remembered. can you desactivate that?

Steve Reich composed the music in order to explore timing issues and phasing etc. Long story. Very Happy

I never input notes in step time so I would have to check the manual for that but it seems logical (pun intended) to remember "the lenght and the velocity info of the previous note" but I am sure you can alter that through key commands (maybe Embarassed )
