Hey guys,

 

I've been reading all day and hoping I could make this happen but I'm losing hope.

 

I have an Pro Tools HD 2 system with 8.1.1 and Logic Pro 9.1.3 installed on my computer.

 

I currently have Logic slaved to pro tools but I can only get sound to come out of the built in output of the speakers which I then record it to pro tools on seperate passes. I'm trying to get my logic instruments to go out seperate audio channels and into seperate audio tracks on Pro Tools.

For example, I want a sound from my exs sampler to be monitored through my pro tools channel 1-2 and a sound from ES1 or some synth to be monitored through channels 3-4.

 

It would just make things sooooo much easier if this could happen! I also have reason 5 rewired to logic which I wanted to go through logic into pro tools on seperate channels as well.

 

As of now, I'm using all 3 programs but I have to use just one stereo channel in pro tools to monitor both logic and reason!

 

Is it possible to assign logic to go out different output channels into different pro tools tracks??????

 

Thanks much - Oh yeah I'm also on Snow Leopard if that matters.

 

Josh

    Oops I meant I can only get sound to come out of my built in output of my computer through the 1/8" jack and then record it down to pro tools. Bouncing would be better but being able to seperate into pro tools and record would be best!

    Bouncing doesn't work for me either because I have a lot of outboard synths and drum machines hooked up midi. I love the sequencing in Logic so I want to be able to monitor the audio and record it into pro tools!!!

     

    Anybody know if this possible???

    Bouncing works for external synths, they must be bounced in realtime.

     

    You can assign any logic synth to any output by changing the setting on the output channel tab on the channel strip.

     

    Why do you want to go to protools? is there something that you can do in PT that you can't do in Logic?

    Hello and thanks for the reply.

     

    I have to use pro tools to monitor and mix my beats as I'm making them. I have many outboard keyboards, the mpc, and a sampler that I like using as well as sounds from logic and reason and pro tools. I can't input the audio into anything other then my pro tools rig so I must use pro tools right???

     

    To make them all work best together, I need them all to work at once. I'm very close, its just this seperating logic tracks to different pro tools tracks while I'm making the beat that is frustrating!

     

    If its impossible I will move on but I'm thinking there has to be a way.

     

    Anyone else?

    Why can't you input audio into Logic? Anything you can record to protools you can also record to logic. Have you checked ouit the "external instrument" plug in in Logic's instrument channel strip menu for your external MIDI gear?

    I have 40 output channels of outboard gear I'm running that connect to my pro tools with analog 1/4" cables... That can't go to logic right???

    Sure you can. Logic can record as many inputs as you have on your audio interface. What interface are you using that has 40 inputs?

    Sorry for my ignorance, but I´m really puzzled by this thread.

    How do you slave Logic to Pro Tools?

    Are they playing together in sync?

    If PT is your main app, why don´t you simply rewire Reason to PT,

    giving you up to 64 inputs?

     

    If I open Logic after PTLE, I´m prompted like "another Rewire app. is already running."

    If I open Logic after PTHD I´m having a conflict between DigiCoreAudio and DAE/TDM.

    As I understand Logic 9 is no longer supported by DAE/TDM.

     

    Correct me please. This could be interesting.

    I'm using Pro Tools HD with two 96 i/o interfaces and two 1622 interfaces. Since I'm using Pro Tools for that I can't just use Logic... Besides I love being able to mix in Pro Tools while I'm making the actual beat!

     

    I'm thinking about downgrading to Pro Tools 8.0.1 and down to leopard but not sure how hard that will be. Logic and Pro Tools supposedly will work how I'm thinking it can!

     

    But is it worth it to change? I'm just not sure yet.

    @Jan D

     

    I slave Logic to Pro Tools with the IAC bus. It's pretty easy if u do a goole search.

     

    I was thinking about rewiring with Reason but I love how the Logic Midi Sequencer works and I'm trying not to stray away from it... Still thinking about what I should do. Maybe even use the Pro Tools Midi.

     

    I heard Logic 9 is not the problem, its Pro Tools 8.0.3 and newer that doesn't support logic...

    My problem is I'm running pro tools 8.1.1... If i downgrade to 8.0.1 it doesn't work in Snow Leopard I believe... Then i have to download to Leopard...

     

    Correct me somebody please!!!

     

    Decisions decisions.

    I love mixing in Logic..... I guess it comes down to personal preference.

    Avid dropped support for Logic TDM in Pro Tools HD 8.0.3. You need Pro Tools HD 8.0.1 if you want to use Logic with TDM hardware. Pro Tools HD 8.0.1 is qualified up to OS 10.5.8. Anything else is untested.

     

    Logic followed suit by dropping the DAE menu in version 9.1 or later (gleamed from reading these forums), but annoyingly did not mention anything in their release notes. 9.0.2 is the last official mention of TDM support.

     

    You can always use eight channels of Avid hardware with CoreAudio. By using aggregate IO you can do what you need to with eight channels. If you want to use DAE TDM, the only guarantee is PT HD 8.0.1, Logic 9.0.2, OS 10.5.8.
