    Thank You PreacherofArrakeen
    The drums are made with stylus rmx software which i use as a plugin in logic studio.These are actualy a drum loops which you can edit just like a midi notes , cool thing.
    I think it was all recorded one afternoon but I´m not sure , maybe two.
    Keep on rocking

    Impressive. How did you do the drums? On an electric kit, hitting keys in realtime, step-write, or a combination? I am just starting to learn Logic's tricks. Light years ahead of my last sequencer, Cubasis. 5 stars. One more question: how long did it take you to put this together?

    Logic has a full drum synth. With any sequencing program, you can draw out individual notes if you want, step edit, or record in real-time with a midi controller.

    Actually you can draw notes by hitting command while in selection tool, on the piano roll view on Garageband.
    And Logic express does come with instruments and effects, what it doesn´t have, are the utilities, like Mainstage, compressor, or Sundtrack Pro.

    Impressive vox m8, Very talented on the axe, can you do both at the same time?
    If yes, you're a perfect candidate for a frontman.
    World next Rock Idol?
    Possibly =)

    @ShSwStudios I agree with you more or less, though I think Hendrix would've made use of whatever tools were at hand at a given moment to expand his capabilities. The sequencer and soft-synths are merely tools. It requires an artist/craftsman to know what to do with the tools. As for me, Cubasis, on an old Mac, was very clumsy, with some of the basic features of a sequencer not working properly, or at all. No audio, either. Logic is a great tool, but it is only as good as the person using it.

    You can do alot more with logic if you want to use midi, and synths, drum machines and such. Protools is simply the industry standard, most studio's use
    protools, but that doesn't mean its better.

    The Drums are all programmed in Logic with Stylus RMX software.

    @PreacherofArrakeen you didn't understand me^^ it's the quality that comes from the equipment, so the quality is just as good as the engineer is. But the music output shows how much the musician feels his song. And for me, working with software-synths etc. is like drawing without a pencil..
    Hendrix was just a guitarist and singer, not an audio-engineer!
    And there must be a reason y some of the "old legends" who are still alive&making music hold distance to those modeled sounds..

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem: Whenever I add a beat that I'm going to record over using Logic, it won't play it until I close Logic and then Open it up again.
    It's pretty annoying. Any suggestions?

    @PreacherofArrakeen Do you believe, that hendrix did music without looking on a computer screen? :s
    Why don't most of the musicians today accept that good music comes from the heart, not from a "better" sequencer than the last one?

    Thank you dkrumrie123 , it is an old AKG C4000.

    he recorded with midi. you can see the tracks on the screen. but if you want to use a real drumset, hook up around 8 mics to your computer, one for each component of your drumkit you want to record, be it your toms, snare, hi-hat, overheads, and record them each to a different track.

    you mean you just plugged the guitar directly into the computer, so no other eqipment was needed apart from the guitar, cable and logic?

  • shredder27
    shredder27 13 years ago

    why would you use a midi controller for audio tracks?

    Logic Pro wouldn't run well on a Mac Mini, if at all. It barely runs on my Mac Book pro :P
