View Full Version : Bouncing a choir in Logic 7
What's the best/easiest way to do this? Ideally I hoped to record the midi track coming from WB onto the virtual instrument track that has kompakt loaded...but that doesn't seem to work. Should I instead be trying to record audio somehow? I'm not really sure how to go about doing that either. Arming a seperate audio track obviously only gives me the option to record from hardware inputs. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious here. Right now I have a recorded midi track -> WB -> back to logic, into a kompakt instance on a virtual inst. track, It SOUNDS fine, but as I said..I can't seem to record anything ON that virtual instrument track. And obviously freezing won't do anything either. Thanks!
i thought i'd experiment a little, and I figured out something pretty intesting, and one possible solution to my problem. If any Logic user is interested in having useable (ie processed by WB) midi data on the kompact virtual instrument track, heres what I found:
Assuming your environment cabling is the same as EWQL suggests (ie..the OUT from wordbuilder virtual port 2 cabled Directly to the kompakt track in question (copy/pasted from the mixer environment layer), heres what I did,
1)Deleted the cable from worbuilder virtual port 2 -> kompakt track
2)Created a cable from wordbuilder virtual port 2 -> "to recording and thru"
Now when I arm the kompakt track for recording, it records all the WB processed midi. This allows me to mute my original midi track, close wb, etc. Then I am free to freeze the virtual instrument track or whatever I want.
Maybe this is something most logic users have figured out by now...maybe not. But I couldn't find it mentioned anywhere in the manuals, pdf's or forums, and it seems like a pretty useful setup to me!

Hey subt - thanks for the tip... I'm having some problems with this as well and it sounds like this might be a solution.

This is a good trick for getting the raw MIDI data from WordBuilder. I guess the best time to use it would be for freezing the track.
You can also do a realtime bounce, and then put the new audio file in your pool, and import it onto a new audio track (old-skool manual freezing). This is handy if you hate working with the environment.
Logic can't freeze or offline bounce any MIDI data that's not on the instrument track, because it's leaving Logic and going through WordBuilder for processing.
