设立外部MIDI乐器逻辑的一部分1
Richard Lainhart on Sat, May 28th 15 comments
Using Logic Pro's built-in software instruments and controlling them with an external USB controller is pretty straightforward, and many people work in Logic this way exclusively. But suppose you have

使用Logic Pro中的内置软件乐器和控制他们与外部的USB控制器是非常简单的,和许多人的工作方式完全在逻辑。但是,假设你有一个多音色MIDI键盘或鼓机与标准的MID端口 - ,你怎么去设置,工作与逻辑?在本教程中,我们将向您展示如何。我们将假定你有一个标准的MIDI接口连接到您的系统,和你有一个集成式控制器,如MIDI键盘,至少有一个标准的MIDI音源,你已经进入外部混频器修补某种监测。


第1步 - 打开音频MIDI设置

我们需要做的第一件事情是OS X的音频MIDI设置实用程序配置 - 逻辑需要的配置,以知道如何路由的外部MIDI乐器流入和流出的逻辑本身。因此,开放在您的应用程序文件夹的“实用工具”文件夹,找到“音频MIDI Setup.app并双击它来启动它。如果您没有看到一个窗口中的MIDI工作室,选择“ 窗口”


你会注意到,音频MIDI设置自动识别MOTU 896HD音频接口,MOTU快128 MIDI接口,和对KORG NanoPAD通过FireWire和USB连接到我的电脑,我的USB控制器。但它并没有认识到我的库兹威尔K2500键盘,我也有MIDI接口MIDI电缆连接,作为前期的USB MIDI通讯不允许这种自动配置。我们需要做的,手动。


第2步 - 添加MIDI键盘音频MIDI设置

要添加您的MIDI键盘,单击窗口顶部的“添加设备”按钮,这将增加通用的新的外部设备图标到窗口:


我们只能离开它,但它更有意义的名称正确的键盘,因为这是的名称,它会出现在逻辑。


第3步 - 名MIDI键盘

要正确的名字你的的设备,双击新的外部设备的图标,打开其属性窗口:


接下来,设备名称,要在其下的键盘出现在名称的类型 - 这可能是该设备的实际型号名称,但你可以将其命名为任何你喜欢的,真的。如果你喜欢,还可以增加制造商的名称和键盘的型号,尽管这是可选的。你甚至可以改变图标的​​东西更紧密合作,像您的设备。要做到这一点,请单击左侧的“打开”图标浏览器按钮,并选择可用的图标:


如果您的键盘没有发送或接收所有16个MIDI通道上,您可以禁用为无效的点击蓝框下传输和接收。我的K2500可以使用所有16​​个通道,所以这里是我最后的配置看起来像:


点击 Apply按钮完成配置,然后关闭设备“窗口。


步骤4 - 连接MIDI端口

我们在音频MIDI设置的最后一步是连接键盘和MIDI接口的MIDI端口。在我而言,我已经从K2500的MIDI OUT连接MIDI输入端口8上的Express 128的物理MIDI电缆,并在K2500上的MIDI MIDI端口8上明示。

当然,在对K2500的MIDI输出可以连接上明示的​​任何端口,就像任何输出端口上明示的MIDI可以连接在2500的MIDI - 对我来说,它的减少混淆两个港口8S上为K2500表达,但您这样做,否则你可能有自己的理由。但是,我们至少要拥有的MIDI系统和键盘之间的两个方向,因为我们将要使用的控制器和作为声源的K2500。

在任何情况下,你需要告诉您已连接该物理端口上的MIDI接口的音频MIDI设置。你虚拟MIDI键盘和接口之间的电缆连接-点击键盘上的MIDI输出端口上,并拖动,在接口上,从该端口8。不要从端口8上的MIDI端口上K2500的接口是相同的:


如果你犯了一个错误,你可以删除一个补丁电缆,按一下就可以了,击中删除。在这一点上,如果您有其他标准的MIDI设备在您的系统,你将要添加的姓名,和那些过于连接。否则,我们在这里的工作是做,我们可以关闭音频MIDI设置和Logic Pro中移动。


第5步 - 启动逻辑并创建一个新的空项目

下一步,我们的教程启动逻辑的目的,创建一个新的空项目,并当你要求建立新的轨道,选择一个外部的MIDI音轨,确保打开库“选项也选中。与一般的通用MIDI选择默认情况下,选择作为默认声音或修补与GM大钢琴,仪器标准的Arrange窗口将打开:


下一步,选择新的轨道,去到“媒体库”选项卡,在屏幕的右侧,你应该看到一个MIDI接口端口的列表,您早在音频MIDI设置配置的MIDI乐器 - 在我的情况, K2500端口8上。点击您的仪器,并在右栏选择频道1:


我们刚分配的新轨道的MIDI乐器的K2500,并设置MIDI通道1的输出,跟踪。


第6步 - 打开本地控制关闭

我们的基本配置,只是做了,但还有最后一个重要的步骤之前,你应该继续上。眼下,在一个典型的配置是否MIDI键盘,它设置本地控制开,这意味着,当你玩的钥匙,键盘产生仪器的自己的声音引擎的声音,以及发送的MIDI逻辑。逻辑,但是,配置循环,通过积极的MIDI数据

然而,与本地控制开,打注意引发两种声音,因为这个MIDI控制回路。至少,打每一个音符的声音,将大大降低您提供复音。更糟糕的是,有些键盘反应严重到这样的MIDI循环,就可以开始行事怪异,甚至锁定。所以,我们想在这里的是,“断开”从自己的声音引擎的MIDI键盘,使弹奏键盘不会触发票据直接。这是当地关不控制 - 它引发直接在自己的声音引擎的笔记禁用键盘,和键盘乐器的声音生产的部分分离,从而禁用MIDI循环。本地控制关闭,大多数多音色的键盘支持这个原因,是一种功能,尽管它可能是您的特定仪器上的其他事情。

因此,在移动之前,本地控制设置为“关闭”,如果可能的话。您可以确认,本地控制禁用记录准备,你的第一首曲目和演奏键盘 - 你应该听到什么。再次启用就绪记录和播放,现在你应该从键盘发送MIDI通过逻辑和仪器再次。


第7步 - 选择一个声音

现在,终于,它的时间记录的东西。你可以选择你想直接使用键盘上的声音,如果你喜欢,或从逻辑程序更改消息发送给它,而不是。要做到这一点,双击在Arrange窗口打开程序名称“窗口中的轨道头的曲目名称部分:


在这个窗口,只需点击程序号之一发送该程序更改为您的仪器,并选择该声音。当然,你必须先知道声音是在您的仪器。如果你这样做,可以使这个过程中多了几分直观通用程序编号,通过改变实际的声音在您的仪器名称。要做到这一点,只要双点击相应的程序数量和改变它以一个声音的名称,如上图所示。当你这样做,曲目名称也会随之改变。如果你有耐心,你可以去这里通过列表,并输入正确的程序更改地点的所有声音名称 - 这将是一个繁琐的过程,但你只能做一次,然后你可以选择的名称,而不是由数字声音。

[有快速互联网搜索可以帮助您找到适合您的外部MIDI乐器现有的逻辑模板。 还记得你的项目保存为模板,所以你不需要每次创建一个新的项目通过这个设置过程-埃德]


第8步 - 录制一些歌曲

一旦你选择了你的声音,点击“录制”按钮,并在逻辑记录到的第一首曲目的几个酒吧。播放它们,以确保你正确记录他们。现在,一个单独的MIDI通道上的一个不同的声音记录的另一条轨道,通过点击以上的轨道轨道在Arrange窗口的下拉菜单并选择新的MIDI通道与下添加另一个MIDI音轨, 或通过输入命令选项- M:


要指定的声音或程序的变化,这条新赛道,滚下旁边的箭头,仪器的名称,新赛道的左侧,然后点击打开该程序的名称列表,然后选择一个程序的程序号:


(请注意,我选择了这里的Moogy低音是一个人的名字,当我在程序名称“窗口中,我已经进入 - 除非您输入特定的程序的名字,你只看到通用的方案。)

现在记录的第二轨道。从这里,你可以继续增加新的曲目,并录制M​​IDI音符,最大的16个MIDI通道,或许多为您的设备支持。

就是这样!我希望您发现本教程非常有用,并检查出101逻辑:核心逻辑101的MIDI:MIDI揭秘教程。

    I can't get sound when I set up the audio track. My synth is connected to my computer via USB and I have instrument cables connecting the synth to my audio interface. The input in Logic are the same as the input I plugged my cable into and there is no sound in my audio track.

    I'm not getting audio in my audio track. My yamaha motif xf8 is connected to my computer via usb and I have an instrument cable connecting it to my audio interface. The inputs in Logic are correct. Logic is receiving the midi data just fine but it's not receiving audio from the audio track. What am I doing wrong? Do I still need to connect my yamaha to the interface in the audio midi set up even though the midi data is been transmitted through the usb cable?

    Hi Richard, I've followed your tutorial to the letter, but I'm getting no sound from my microkorg. Midi messages are being sent, and when I change the patch name via logic, the microkorg's display also changes, so they're definitely connected. But no sound from the korg! Any thoughts?

    Hi RIchy, Do you have the audio outputs from your MicroKorg connected to the inputs on your audio interface? You will also need to create an audio track in Logic and set the input for that track to match the connected input on your audio interface. Remember to click the "I" (Input Monitor) or "R" (Record-ready) on the track so you can hear the Microkorg's audio coming through Logic.

    Thanks for your quick reply, Rounik. No, my audio ouputs from the Korg are not connected to the inputs on my audio interface (which is a focusrite saffire pro, if that helps). I know how to record the audio form the Korg, but I want to record the Korg's sounds using MIDI for greater flexibility.

    Hi RIchy, Sure. I understand what you're saying. But it's important to remember that MIDI isn't sound. MIDI is information or data - there's no sound contained in a MIDI message. That's why, if you wish to hear the sounds generated by the Microkorg, you need to route it's audio output through Logic. You don't "need" to record it - you can simply record the MIDI data sent from the Korg, and monitor the audio created by the Korg within Logic or via a separate headphones or speakers connected to the Korg. Hope this helps, Rounik

    Thanks. I just wanted to know if it was possible to record with midi data instead of audio, but from what you're saying, it isn't possible.

    Hi Richy, Well, you can of course record the MIDI note event data from the MicroKorg. Think of it like recording your performance without any sound. MIDI data and cables don't carry audio just this "performance data". And that is the beauty of MIDI... you record the MIDI performance and then change the sound source later. so you might record a piano sound... but you can change the sound source on the MicroKorg or in Logic to create completely different sonic possibilities. Plus, even though you need to monitor your audi signal to actually hear sound generated when you play MIDI notes, you don't need to record the audio... just record the MIDI and then the MIDI notes will trigger the sound source on your MicroKorg synth. Hope this helps and makes sense. R

    "you can of course record the MIDI note event data from the MicroKorg". HOW?! I've been through this tutorial and I still can't do it! That was my original point.

    So you've followed every step... OK. What happens for you in step 08 when you hit record in Logic and hit the keys on your Microkorg? Are all physical connection setup correctly? What about in your AudioMIDI Setup? In Logic, when you hit a key on the Microkorg, do you see the note data begin received by Logic? (Look in the Transport display).

    Thanks Rounik. When I hit record and play some notes, the MIDI data is displayed as usual in the piano roll, and the transport bar is showing the note data received by logic. The audio midi setup is correct as far as i can see (i followed this tutorial to do it) and the physical connection must be fine because i play all the other synths/instruments perfectly fine using the Korg.

    Thanks Richie. That's great. SO it sounds like you simply need to - set some cables and take the audio output from the synth into your Mac's Audio Interface. This will carry the audio sound waves from the MIDI device into your Mac and into Logic. (The other MIDI connection only outputs notes into Logic - but no sound. When used with Software Instrument tracks the sound is generated by the Instrument in Logic - not from any external source). - Create an audio track in Logic - Set the inputs to match the inputs on your audio interface. - record-enable that audio track - Play some keys on the Microkorg and you should see the MIDI notes being recieved by Logic (look in the Transport display)... and you should see some audio signal in the audio track. Hope this helps R -

    Hello, I have a Korg X5DR sound module and I can't get Logic Express 9 to recognize it. This is my set up: KaySound keyboard controller. (no sounds) Technics 88 key weighted keyboard which I also use as a controller. I like playing the weighted keys. Midiman midisport 2x2 interface Korg X5DR sound module. I'm able to record using the sounds from Logic. My KaySound controller is going in the "in" of the Midisport. My Technics is going into the other "in" of my Midisport and the Midisport goes into my iMac via USB. Now just that set up alone allows me to record using the sounds from Logic, but shouldn't I be able to see the Midisport in Library of Logic. It's not there, but I'm still able to record. I don't understand that. Now as far as the Korg module, I tried every conceivable set up going into Midisport and cannnot get Logic to see it. At one point about a year ago I had it working and recording in Logic, but I don't remember how it was set up. I tried checking for a driver for the Korg, but all I could find is one for a PC. I don't remember having a driver for the iMac. This is driving me crazy. Thanks for any help. sus4

    Is it necessary to check "receives MIDI beat clock" in Audio MIDI Setup if the synth needs to receive clock for tempo synchronized modulations (LFOs, delays, etc.)? I usually leave it checked just in case, but, as far as I've seen, the only parameters that are critical are the modules internal settings (receive clock=on, or whatever it is for that device), and the Logic project setting>synchronization>MIDI tab>Transmit MIDI clock destination (must be checked and specified. I leave it set to All). Thanks for your helpful tutorials.
