创建逻辑复杂的琶音模式 - 第2部分
Rounik Sethi on Sun, February 6th 20 comments
This tutorial continues from where the previous "Creating Arpeggiated Patterns in Logic - Part 1" left off. If you're relatively new to Logic's Environment and haven't already followed that tut, I'd r

本教程继续从以前的“创建琶音模式在逻辑-第1部分”不放过。如果你是相对较新的逻辑的环境和尚未其次,啧啧,我建议标题中有第一次。

在本教程中,我们将采取一看,在如何获得更多的控制在琶音对象,并设置它,让您你的模式 ,可以适用于任何您所选择的软件乐器轨实时不同的琶音。我们还将创建一个方式切换开启和关闭。

这是一个很多获得通过,事不宜迟,让我们直接跳到!

01 - 选择你喜欢的声音

我已经开始了一个新的空白项目,并创建一个新的软件乐器的音轨。我选择了下面的通道条设置:

10世界

当然,你可以选择你喜欢的任何通道条设置。单音低音合成器可以工作得很好,如果你正在寻找创建一个电子的杰作。

02 - 在正确的途径

我们将路由这个琶音不同我们的方法,在此啧啧的第一部分。之前我们让我们来看看在环境窗口中的快速查找,特别,点击

开放的环境窗口,并选择点击

的点击

重要的是了解信号的逻辑流,无处更好地了解如何比与这两个对象工程。如果没有从物理输入对象的音序器输入的连接,然后当你按一个键MIDI键盘(或Caps Lock键盘),MIDI数据不会达到你的轨道,在逻辑的混合机。

03 - 创建一个琶音

选择

放置在MIDI信号链之间的物理和音序器的输入对象的琶音器的优点是,我们现在可以申请arpeggiations为准跟踪我们在安排当地的选择,而无需创建一个新的轨道,特别琶音对象。 (下一步)。

04 - 去Arpeggiate!

为了证明这种类型的琶音如何从一个在本教程的第1部分的不同,我创建了一个额外的软件乐器的音轨,一个雕塑脏编钟作为乐器的声音。要创建的琶音,它只是打游戏,按住和弦MIDI键盘的问题。

现在,如果你选择不同的软件乐器的音轨在播放/记录,你会被自动创建使用追踪仪器的琶音模式。

下面的屏幕快照显示了录制一个简单的模式,同时切换曲目的结果。你可以看到,当我选择了每首曲目的MIDI音符事件的位置。

它听起来像:

[音频ID =“647”]

05 - 时间切换

所以,你已经记录了您的琶音模式。你很高兴,可能现在你想记录构图其他一些地区。但是,我们有一个问题。你玩实时/记录到任何轨道上的任何MIDI音符将被处理在环境中的琶音对象!

我们需要找到一种方法,它完全无需断开开关。让我们的头回到我们的环境窗口,要做到这一点。从当地的环境菜单中选择

这个最有用的对象,将允许我们交换机的ARP或关闭。更确切地说,它就会使你的路由通过它的输出MIDI信号。这是一个有点像道岔 - 火车,然后按照你切换到火车轨道。

06 - 连接电缆的切换

目前,电缆切换正坐在那里无所事事。我们需要的MIDI信号到达电缆切换,才达到的琶音对象,因此路由电缆如下:

  • Cable from the Input View to the Cable Switcher.
  • Next, route the first output cable from the Cable Switcher direct to the Sequencer Object.
  • Drag the Second output cable from the Cable Switcher to the Arpeggiator. (Make sure the Arpeggiator's output is still going direct to the Sequencer Input too).
  • Finally, change the range of the Cable Switcher (in the Inspector) to read 0 1. The first cable output = 0 (direct to Logic / bypassing the Arpeggiator object). The second cable output = 1 (the MIDI notes pass through the Arpeggiator object and then into Logic).

它应该看起来像这样:

电缆上的转换器,单击路由通过不同的输出MIDI信号。

现在,您已经创建了一个ON / OFF开关,这样你就可以选择是否播放/录制的表演通常或琶音模式。

07 - 进行实时

让我们快速查找在逻辑的MIDI编辑琶音模式之一。双击上的MIDI地区在钢琴卷帘,以查看它的内容。

如果您遵循本教程的第一部分,你将毫无疑问,立即通知差异。配售之间的物理输入和时序逻辑的输入环境的琶音对象,从琶音对象的实际输出的票据记录 - 而不是你所扮演的原和弦。

额外的好处是,如果你想使追踪(或项目)的音频,可以反弹脱机。是啊。没有反弹对话框中需要使用实时选项的逻辑已经写入您的音轨的MIDI音符事件的琶音模式!

08 - 更多琶音对象=更多选项

现在,我们已经得到了使用一个琶音措施,让我们的创意和路由在逻辑的可能性,更深入地探索。

创建更多一些琶音对象,并把它们添加到信号链如下图所示。请注意我是如何改变每个琶音对象的参数值,将它们命名为适当。

另外请注意,我已经增加了电缆切换的范围,考虑到额外的输出电缆。

您不必停止存在。您可能希望两个琶音要处理的MIDI音符有线接二连三一些有趣的/奇特的效果,你不妨来控制电缆切换使用的MIDI控制器上的一个关键。很多,很多的环境中是可能的。

09 - 互动设计技巧

有夫妇的接触,我们可以添加,以使这个环境更直观,更易于使用。

首先,让我们相信,我们可以访问,而无需深入的环境此电缆切换按钮。只需右击环境页的背景,并选择“无框浮动窗口“。调整窗口的大小,所以你只能看到电缆切换和位置,任何地方,你想它是在屏幕上。

我还建议在环境的空背景右键单击并选择“ 保护立场和隐藏电缆 ”。这意味着你可以不小心删除的电缆,并打破的信号流链。

请记住您的环境是保存在这个项目。我会建议您的理想琶音环境,并选择文件

只要您选择创建一个新的项目,你的琶音模板将提供给您!

这里的一个证明一些复杂的琶音模式,就可以轻松实现之间的不同琶音对象,用不同的方向模式和倍频设置的开关 - 所有这些都在实时的音频采样!

[音频ID =“654”]

10 - 附录:琶音的方向模式的解释

这里有一个简短的运行模式,在逻辑的琶音对象提供不同的方向。这些决定和弦的各个音符播放顺序。

  • Up: Plays from the lowest note to the highest note.
  • Down: The opposite of Up.
  • Up/Down: Plays from the lowest note to the highest note and then highest to lowest note.
  • Auto: Plays Up if the lowest note of chord is played first. Plays Down if highest note of chord is played first.
  • Up/Down2: Same as Up/Down except the highest and lowest notes are not repeated.
  • Random: As the name suggests, notes of the chord are played in random order.
  • All: Plays all notes of the chord simultaneously!

检查这些,甚至更多的逻辑环境的技巧和窍门教程 ,将让您的音乐作品脱颖而出!

    Rounik,
    Great articles on the arpeggiator!
    I have just one thing to add, if you don't mind...
    Click on the cable switcher and look in the Inspector. You'll see the Input is set to Control #7 (MIDI Volume). If you're like me and you have a CC#7 slider on your controller that you use to adjust (or record) volume moves, they can cause the cable switcher to switch.
    One way to avoid this is to set the MIDI input of the cable switcher to react to something like Poly Pressure, or Fader, or Meta. Alternatively, you could change the "-1-" value to a CC number that you know you won't generate from your controller.
    Cheers!

  • Thanks for the great info, Rounik. Is there a way to arpeggiate an already recorded loop?

    Hi Pat. Do you mean an audio loop or a MIDI region? Thanks!

  • Thanks for clarifying: MIDI region. I'm hoping to take what I've already recorded and arpeggiate it, creating another MIDI region (obviously with the arpeggiated pattern in MIDI note events). Is that possible?

    Hi Pat, this is a good question. I'd use "Method 1" from Part 1 of this Arpeggiated patterns tutorial: http://www.macprovideo.com/blog/logic-pro/creating-arpeggiated-patterns-logic-pro-part-1 This will arpeggiate (in real-time) pre-recorded MIDI note events on the Arpeggiator Track in the Arrange area. You can then bounce (again in real-time) this to audio...

    This is an amazing tutorial! It really helped me out a lot! But, of course, i do have a question. is it possible to set different arpeggio resolutions to different keys.... ex: key C3 play resolution 1/8, key D3 plays resolution 1/16 etc.... and again THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH

    Thanks Jonathan! And that's a great question. It is possible... I can think of a couple of ways to do this using a transformer to route certain pitches to different arpeggiators... Let me think about this a little while and I'll either write a new article for The Hub showing one method to do this or post a quick 'How-to' on the MPV Logic forum. Thanks!!

    Hi Rounik, thanks for this informative tutorial. It helped me much more than the Logic Pro manual. My question is: if I treat an already recorded midi part with an arpeggitor, can I record the result only by bouncing or is it possible to get a new recorded midipart of it. I hope my English is clear enough. With kind regards

    Hi Orest, Thanks for your kind words! If you have an already recorded MIDI part which you want to apply arpeggiating... here's what I'd do: You'll need to use the technique shown in Part 1 of this article here: http://www.macprovideo.com/hub/logic-pro/creating-arpeggiated-patterns-logic-pro-part-1 basically: - Route the output of the Arpeggiator object to the track you want to arpeggiate. - Create a track for the arpeggiator in the Arrange area. - move the MIDI region to that Arpeggiator track. This will allow you to apply arpeggiator to the pre-recorded MIDI region... but not record it to MIDI. ________ The only way to effectively record the output as MIDI is to route the MIDI out of Logic and then back into Logic. I haven't tried this in a long while. I'd suggest enabling IAC in the Audio MIDI Setup app (inside Applications/Utilities) then you can send the MIDI out of Logic to an app like MainStage - and then use it to bring it back into Logic...) Sorry, I haven't got time to try this out now... let me know how you get on and when I have time I'll take a closer look. Perhaps I'm missing something :) Best R

    Ahhh! OK. Forget about using IAC driver to route MIDI back into Logic... of course, this can be done more easily :) So, please follow the steps above in my previous comment... but ALSO, route the output of the software instrument channel strip (the track) in Logic's Environment directly to the Sequencer Input. Now, in the Arrange area click on the littlr "R" button on the Instrument's track header (to record arm it). Hit record and the arpeggiation will be applied to the MIDI region and recorded to the record armed track. Make sure to remove the cable connecting the output from the software instrument channel strip to the sequencer output once you're done. Hope this makes sense. :)

    Hello, it worked. I opened a new sequencer-input in the mixer environment window, was a bit puzzled, because the sequencer-input in the click&port window vanished. Back in the mixer window I connected the software instrument that should be arpeggiated with the sequencer-input, enabled record - et voila. the method with an external midi player and iac I will evtl. try later, I don´t want to bother too much with technical issues. Thank you for the immediate help.

    Thanks for this article. It covers a lot more than I already knew about setting up the arp in Logic. Still, this all seems unnecessary. Don't most DAWs and/or synths offer an Arp button with parameters? I just bought a $12 synth with a built in Arp. I usually just program my notes into the piano roll which takes less time than messing around in the environment and all these cables. Give me lots of flexibility to put in the occasional octave jump to create melodic interest. I hope Logic updates this issue and/or at least offer it on the ES synths and maybe Sculpture.

    Hi EDGEK8D, Thanks. You're correct most modern DAWs now include a much easier way to create arpeggiated patterns by way of a built-in mode within a plug-in or an easier object to insert or apply to a MIDI performance. The Environment in Logic provides a huge amount of flexibility and possibilities. Which is why saving the arpeggiator as a template is important, and/or transferring it to a new project. Who knows what'll happen in Logic X, or when... but if you have time I'd recommend checking out some more of what the Environment can offer. Here's an example of a complex object/device I've created which you can download: http://www.macprovideo.com/hub/logic-pro/mpv-free-stuff-step-sequencer-for-logic-pro :)
