Hi Steve In the "Tips & Tricks" you mentioned the following to my post: >>> Yeah, believe it or not, Logic doesn't allow you to perform live and record the performance!!! It's setup to bounce only...however, I've got some work-arounds which can over come this deficiency. There's a weird way to do it internally using side chains and there are a couple of free and/or cheap products you can get to reroute audio in order to get the outputs back on an audio track to record! That sounds great! I know about side chains though I've not be able to set it up yet.. Is it possible to tell me what these other cheap and dirty products are that work around this "bounce only" issue? I thought it was just me that couldn't figure out why Logic just doesn't seem to have an easier way to just record in a certain way on the fly! I'd love to know what the work around is as I've got about two hours of jam mixes ready to lay down and I'm ready to go to the next step now...I think I might be hacking my own system but so far I like the way it's working, the felxibility and ability to get a live feel and jam parts to electronic music is desired for me, and to be able to semi capture the arrangements...Then to have the matrix editor to add also - I'm not sure how or even if.. what I'd even end up with...some tracks with audio recorded and some midi sequences playing the virtual instrument parts..and then some way to merge them as one..I'm relying on the "PATTERN MODE, and "MUTE" for operating Ultrabeat also..using the keyboard to switch sequences and mute at the same time..so "bounce" would not be able to record that...at least i don't think it will..I'm trying to get a method that works both ends against the middle...a live "jam" usingh Live and rewire, combined with the Logic, virtual instruments , Matrix editor, midi sequences, that could also be bounced...and somehow matched up, or merged with the "work around" recorded tracks. I'd appreciate any tipos and tricks in advance!!:)) I'm wondering if "M" program from Cycling 74 might be useful in this also..?
