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.

    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?

    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?

    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 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.
