I wrote: How do you use logic, if you do it at all - as sequencer or more as tape-machine style recording tool? Or is logic just sitting in your studio to offer compatibility? Charles Di Pinto posted August 18, 2001 01:55 PM Hi there, Perhaps Logic users are just highly busy people? Maybe we could introduce ourselves, start the Logic Family... Of course, I'm a logic user, and have been since the days of Notator on an Atari. That's over ten years now. And over that time, I've had a chance to use alot of programs, like cubase vst, cakewalk, pro tools (tdm)and samplitude. Logic is basically the centerpiece for everything I do. Without it, projects would take me 10x the time they do now. I work with the musical styles that Logic, imo, is best suited for: electronic, hip hop and alt rock. It's my sequencer and audio multitracker. I currently live in Brazil (although I'm from the States) where Logic is somewhat popular. I'm kinda paranoid about how I like to use the program (with and autoload and .prf file on floppy always with me when I travel), so I'm not sure I'd be getting alot out of this forum if it becomes, exclusively, a "use logic better" clinic. But firsthand info about new releases, reports on different hardware setups (how about a laptop LAW with the tascam usb thingee?) and patch swapping (es1 and plug ins) could all be very fun. I run my LAW with a MOTU 24i, and although I'm not particularly fond of the way they integrate, the MOTU converters a pleasing, and I can get 24 simultaneous tracks on record. Not that I have ever had to do this in a work scenario. I also have an old audiowerk on my home system. What systems do other people use out there? Do you like them? Why or why not? Take care... Charles Di Pinto pan : posted August 18, 2001 02:13 PM Hi Charles, thank you for your reply I don't think, that logic users are more busy than users of Protools or Cubase, are we? Or do we just work 10 times more than them? I started off with Creator on Atari and a Sequential Studio440 MPC-like sequencer and sampleplayer. And with the Unitor, I achieved really good sync to tape. I made the switch to logic on mac, when 3.5 was released and I really had to hold back hence the multitude of possible tracks really got me away from focussing. In the meantime, LAP supports so many audiotracks, that I record most of the tracks directly into logic. I sometimes have it synced to a 24 Track by a timemachine, that also syncs the desk automation, but the basic setup is to run it as master MIDI-audio sequencer - be it in an editing booth with an Audiowerk/2408 or in the mix on a TDM system. keep it coming Niko How about you?
