You can't use instrument tracks in STP. You could bounce or render them as audio and bring them into STP, but not as instrument tracks.
If your beats aren't syncing w/in STP, the audio you were using may not have the right metadata, or it could be as simple as having a different feel than the other material.
What you can do is continue to compose in GB and export your tracks, and mix in STP. If you want to use loops that come with STP, you can use those in GB. The difficulty you run into is that you can't actually "compose to picture." So if you need a video window, you're stuck, without getting into Logic Pro.
Hope that helps!
Thanks, Matt. Can I use Logic express??? If so I can't get my husband to agree to $200 more onto of the boat load we just sunk into this, unfortunately. If not then I am resigned to having to do what I have to do then. How can I get my stuff from garage band to STP? Can you give me the step by step? I'm afraid it has something to do with exporting every tack separately...
Thanks for your help with this.
Wishing money grew on trees...
Logic express has a video window, and I think all of the instruments from GB can be played in LE, though I don't have any Logic products.
But maybe the track transfer first. Here's a really nice page I found with step-by-step and screenshots for getting track out of GB. In these scenarios the destination is Pro Tools, but once you get the tracks out, you can transfer to any other workstation and it will work. Here's the link:
