创建琶音模式在逻辑 - 第1部分
Rounik Sethi on Tue, February 1st 20 comments
Logic comes with a built-in arpeggiator. It's true! Many new Logic users search for it within the DSP Effects area to no avail - or hope that it may be an option within the included instruments. Inste

逻辑带有一个内置的琶音。这是真的!许多新的逻辑用户搜索DSP效果区域内不得要领 - 或希望,它可能是一个选项内包括文书。相反,我们需要深入到逻辑的环境,以创建一个琶音器,一旦你知道如何使用它,将工作的伟大。

有两种主要方式设置逻辑的琶音。在本教程中,我们将探讨它的最简单的方法和运行,并创造一些琶音模式。

01 - 选择你的仪器

I've started out by creating a new Software Instrument track and have chosen to use Sculpture as my instrument of choice. If you'd like to follow along I've used the preset:
06 Mallet Instruments > Classic Vibraphone

接下来,我创建了一个MIDI上的电颤琴的轨道地区和一些和弦铅笔:

下面是我们的仪器听起来像:

[音频ID =“628”]

02 - 创建一个琶音

如果你从来没有涉足Logic的环境之前和这样的思想干扰你的睡眠,没有恐惧。这真是一个友好的地方,一旦你理解的基础,而一旦掌握,你就会明白为什么逻辑是如此受欢迎!

我们将要创建一个新琶音对象和它的电颤琴跟踪路由。

选择“ 窗口”

选择

创建一个琶音对象。您可以拖动和放置在一个方便的地方,在环境窗口。

03 - 接

琶音在它的右上角有一个三角形。这是一个输出插槽。这让我们把它连接到另一个对象,并输出MIDI信号从一个通道条Arpegiator对象。

在这种情况下,我们要arpeggiate电颤琴仪器。因此,输出三角拖动电缆会出现。砸电颤琴通道条电缆。建立连接!

我们从ARP电颤琴通道条改为输出。

04 - 跟踪琶音

我们的琶音需要它自己的轨道。它不能创造良好的,但它可以arpeggiate MIDI音符,我们的打法(或在赛道上的地方),并将它们发送到连接的电颤琴轨道。

在安排当地的返回创造一个新的轨道。不要紧,什么类型的赛道,我们将其分配给我们的琶音。

环境窗口的位置,这样你可以看到排列页面上的曲目标题列表。从环境窗口拖动到新的轨道头琶音对象。琶音对象是现在分配给追踪。

如果碰到现在玩,你会听到原来的电颤琴和弦,而不适用于他们的任何arpeggiation。

琶音器可以不arpeggiate不同轨道上的一个区域的MIDI音符。该解决方案?只需将地区在安排当地的电颤琴轨道的琶音器的轨道。

05 - 实时的现实!

如果你打你的MIDI控制器或使用的Caps Lock键盘,你只会听到正在播放的单音符/和弦MIDI音符。这是因为逻辑的琶音实时:运输已在运行,或者换句话说,你必须在“玩”模式。

点击播放,你会听到从我们的和弦模式已创建的琶音。

[音频ID =“634”]

06 - 琶音选项

有很多事情可以做,以改变方式的和弦琶音。

选择琶音跟踪和督察琶音的轨道披露箭头以显示更多选项。

在这里你可以设置的琶音和弦方向。例如,将发挥最高的最低音符, 会从最高到最低,并随机会以随机顺序播放的音符。

您还可以设置的琶音音符速度,选择限制在球场范围内,以确定哪些债券将于琶音。 ( 键限制范围以外的任何票据将不会琶音)。

决议决定琶音模式的注意分工。这也可以形容速度。例如,设置分辨率为1 / 8,将导致较慢的格局,在超过1 / 16。如果你是一个非常前卫的效果后,尝试将分辨率设置为随机!

另外一个有趣的选项是设置,可以跨越最多至10个八度重复的琶音音符的八度!

这是可能的“遥控器”在琶音这些设置,但是这超出了本教程的范围。 史蒂夫H的逻辑TNT1教程在这里可以找到更先进的琶音的技巧和窍门。

07 - 获得创意

由于琶音是一个环境对象,它可以被路由到已创建的分层琶音模式的其他文书。

Create a new Software Instrument track and place an Instrument of choice on the track. In this example I'm using the ES2 and the setting:
12 Synth Keyboard > Electric Harmonics


现在跳回环境窗口拖动的琶音器的第二输出到这种新的软件乐器通道条。有了一些调整,你可以创造一些有趣的琶音模式。当然,你选择的声音可以有很大的不同。实验与合成器的低音和较短的舞蹈和恍惚音乐的刺声音。

[音频ID =“636”]

然而,有一个警告,成立这样的琶音。琶音不写输出琶音模式(您是否记录路轨或使用MIDI地区)的说明。所以,如果你一个和弦琶音跟踪记录,你会记录你玩,而不是你听到的琶音模式的原始票据。

因此,如果你想呈现的音频模式,然后确保使用实时模式时反弹。这使得逻辑发送原和弦的琶音和记录输出,必须实时完成。

当你创建了一个琶音器,你可能希望你的项目保存为模板,以避免需要重新建立一个从头开始的琶音。然而,留本教程的第二部分,我们来看看,为创造一个琶音环境,可以切换开/关,可应用于无需额外的凌乱布线所需的任何软件乐器的音轨调整...这种方法也将写琶音模式直接到你选择的曲目。

    Hi Rounik, The guidelines were helpful, however, I had a little problem - with this method the output from the other tracks in the arrangement window goes away! Would be grateful if you could let me know how could I bring it back on? Thanks, Ankush

    Hi Ankush, What do you mean "it goes away?" Are the level meters of those channel strips still registering an output? Are those MIDI regions muted? This shouldn't happen... unless one of the channels is solo-ed or some connections inthe Environment's 'Cables and Ports' layer have been broken... Try creating a new project and following the steps from scratch. Also you can download the project file to accompany Part 1 here: http://www.macprovideo.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/Arp-in-Logic-Part-1.zip Furthermore, I'd recommend following Part 2, as it's a more flexible way to use an Arpeggiator in Logic: http://www.macprovideo.com/blog/logic-pro/creating-complex-arpeggiated-patterns-logic-part-2

    Thanks to you, I just noticed that, though in the arrangement window none of the tracks were solo-ed or muted, in the mixer window there was an extra instrument that was solo-ed and hence was creating the problem. Its gone now and working fine. Thanks a ton again. Regards, Ankush

    Being as I am jumping into the middle of Logic without a lot of the initial training, this may be an easy answered question but... I followed your steps and got the arpeggiator working well except for one odd thing that I can't solve. The initial chord that I created using the pencil tool starts with a full chord bang of the notes so if I use something with any reverb or echo, it lingers rather than just doing the random order I asked it to. The rest of the chords sound like they should which is strange since I copied the initial chord and pasted it in to make the learning process quick and easy. Any thoughts? By the way, easiest Logic tutorial I've tried so thank you for the good work! Thanks, Kyle

    Hey Kyle, Thanks. Glad you've been enjoying the tutorial :) Is the first chord starting on Bar 1? Or does the playhead start playing back before the first chord... say a bar or so? Also, what version of Logic are you running? e.g. 9.1.5. Thanks Rounik

    I'm on 9.1.5 The first chord is right on the beginning of Bar 1 and there is no delay from hitting the play button to the sound. It literally sounds like I've pounded the first chord with the sustain pedal held down but I drew the notes.

    Thanks for this tutorial. I was up and running in no time. Aside from bouncing to audio, I would like to record arpeggiated notes using a pre-existing MIDI region. It seems that, for recording purposes, the input is only recognized physically and not with pre-existing MIDI regions. For example, I record-enabled the software instrument track and created an empty MIDI region on that track as well. When I try to record the arpeggiated notes onto the software instrument track using a pre-existing MIDI region on the Arpeggiator track, it plays the music during the recording, but the MIDI data does not get recorded onto the MIDI region. Is there a way to route it in the Environment to get it to record the arpeggiated notes onto the software instrument track using a pre-existing MIDI region on the Arpeggiator track? This is in contrast to playing the chords by hand while recording. I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong or the capability is not there. Thanks!

    Hi Dheeraj, Yes! You can do this. First I'd recommend you setup the Arpeggiator using the second tutorial in this series: http://www.macprovideo.com/hub/logic-pro/creating-complex-arpeggiated-patterns-logic-part-2 (Link is at the bottom of the article above.) This will give you much more control over creating Arpeggiated patterns. Save the arp project as a template and then follow these steps: 1- Place the MIDI region (preferably chords) you wish to arpeggiate on any Software Inst track. Bypass or remove the Instrument on that track. 2- Next you need to cable the output from that track's channel strip to the input of the Arpeggiator. (i.e. the Arp On/Off switch). 3- Back in the Arrange area select the Soft Inst track you want to record to and hit Record. You should now have an arpeggiated pattern :) Hope this help, R

    I just followed your steps on a track I finished this morning and it works great! Step 2 was exactly the solution I was looking for: creating a connection to the Arpeggiator from the software instrument track output. Thanks so much, Rounik!

    This is a great tutorial but please answer Kyle's question. I'm having the same problem. Bar 1, Beat 1, hit play, blam, the chord rings out, then the arp kicks in. This is super annoying. I move the midi pattern back a bar, problem solved. Well Logic, what if I wanted the arp. to start on the first bar?

    Hi Eric & Kyle, What version of Logic are you running? Which plug-in are you using? Buffer I/O size? Sometimes Logic can be a bit fussy if the MIDI event start exactly on the beat (Bar 1, beat 1). It's a legacy thing. It's not uncommon for many long-time pro Logic users to start their projects at Bar 2 or 5... just not Bar 1! I'd suggest following part 2 of this tutorial-article, you'll actually be able to print the arpeggiated to the MIDI region and therefore be able to bounce your pattern / song to audio without using the real-time mode. Lot's of other advantages too :) Hope this helps R

    Hey there, need help guys! i just started using environment for the last 3days, i manage to do a few stuff, but there is one thing i still can't do. I simply cannot create a new instrument track on my mixing table (environment one), wether im starting on an empty project, or a template. I go to "new", "mixing table" and there the option to create a new software instrument track is disabled. (same same for the audio) I know i can create new tracks directly from the edit window, but this is not what i want. Can somebody please help me getting this option enabled in the environment window?

    I also tried ALT + Click, which allows me to copy and paste the track, but as soon as i change instruments, all tracks become the same intrusment.

    Hi Aksel, yeah, Alt-drag/click will create a copy, not a new track. You will need to create your tracks in the Arrange area, and the corresponding channel strip will appear in the Environment window. It'll just take a couple of quick key commands to do this: 1. Switch back to the Arrange window (Command ~) 2. Hit Alt-Cmd-N and create as many tracks as you need. 3. Switch back to the Environment (Cmd ~) Alternatively, if your MUST stay in the Environment only then create some Aux channel strips and assign them to software instrument channels in the Inspector's Channel drop down menu. Hope this helps R

    Thanks for the quick reply Rounik. What you told me does not really help though. I have an exercice to do for school. Here's the thing: I have 5 tracks on which there are no outputs, so my guess was to create 5 new tracks in the environment window and then come back to the arrange window to map them to the right track. I tried creating aux tracks, but it still does not work, meaning there are already midi notes recorded on each of the 5 tracks I have, played, without getting any sound from it. any ideas? ps: what worked (but is surely not the best way): i created new tracks in the arrange window like you advised me to, and i mapped each existing tracks to the new instruments one newly created .

    Hi Aksel, You don't need to be in the Environment window to set the inputs and outputs of tracks. Simply create a new track in Arrange area and in the window set the input or output. If you're working with already created tracks then simply select the track header and change the input / output in the left channel strip (in the Inspector). Not sure why this isn't the best way... why do you need to be in the Environment? What are you trying to achieve? If you already have tracks created in the Arrange then Logic has already created channel strips for you which you'll see in the Environment window, Mixer window and the Arrange area's Inspector.
