The Logic function of my dreams?

    Hi
    I was just wondering if any of you guys could help me. I'm using my Logic Audio on Mac, day in day out, and I would be unreasonable happy if you could solve this problem of mine.
    The thing is i have quite a few audiotracks going in all my arrangements, i also use a lot of plugins. This is a bad combination. Is it possible to apply an insert plugin to a given audiotrack without doing the solo/bounce function?
    I'm looking for a button that say something like "apply effect to track" with a backup option.
    I think it is very very annoyng that i have to

    1: Make a loop selection
    2: Solo the track i need to apply the effect to
    3: Gain the track to 0
    4: Press to monobutton on the masterfader
    5: Listen to the entire track while bouncing
    6: Remove the original track from the arrangement
    7: Insert the new processed track at the correct position
    8: Depress the mono button on the master fader
    9: Remove the insert plugin from the track
    10: Reset the correct level on the new processed track.
    11: Remove the loop selection

    I'm sure the guys at Emagic must have thought of a smarter way to do this?!

    Thanx in advance..........i'm sure others would benfit from this function as well.

    See ya

    Hey Lenz! What audiohardware do you use?

    Hmm..not sure about Logic but in Nuendo you have the ability to select a track..go to Audio Process and choose an effect and apply it..thus taking the processor power away from plugin hell! I havent run Logic in awhile since they dont support Win2k yet...sad sad sad!! 5.0 supposedly but who knows when that will come out!
    Look to see if you can select a track and process the effect right to it

    Hey Nik

    I use the MOTU 2408 mkII system on a Mac.

    Btw. I checked out the Home Studio on the website...I'm impressed, it's huge.....all you need is a pool and sauna and you have everything one could ask for.

    See ya

    You could use the ADAT (B) lightpipe to feed the (C) inputs and "Bounce on the fly":

    1. Set Output to (B 1/2) and pan hard for mono Tracks
    2. Create a new Track
    3. Set Input to corresponding Output and set Output to former Source Out
    4. Adjust Levels: Source @0db new Track @actual panning and Level
    5. Record the spots you need

    Voila - half the steps! I find this quite useful, when applying autotune to vocals ;)
    That's the hard(ware) route, but I certainly pray with you for a soft path!

    What we really need at HOME is a small room with a bed...those huge couches really hurt :p

    Cheers, Niko

    Yeah!.....that will save me some time....wouldn't use it on drumtracks though, because of the phasedrifting.....or is that not considered a problem?
    I'm actually amazed that Emagic didn't put this function in their software?!.....perhaps we'll see it in 5.0....it wouldn't surprise me.

    See ya

    You can bounce 8 tracks at one time - no up to 16 if you connect it vice-versa...
    Phasedrifting should not be a problem cause you stay in digital domain, but watch out for latency issues (as always)

    This may sound like obvious no-brainer stuff,but here goes anyway! Are you sure you are fully utilizing your aux sends?? No sense in opening another platinum verb on a separate track if the same verb sound exists elsewhere. If so, then your looking at bounces, I too do it often with Autotuning. Can't wait for 5.0 !
