Logic Pro 9



In the last week when I try to edit a bounced audio file (mp3) the audio region is not behaving when snipped and faded.


I have chopped the end, trimmed the beginning, faded in and out on both ends and then moved audio file to start of arrange window (bar 1) only to find it skipping at the start and ending prematurely where its not supposed to.


Only started happening recently and not sure what is going on!


Anyone else finding this problem?

Logic Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.1), Macbook Pro

    Don't use MP3 in  Logic. Ever. Always convert to PCM (=AIFF or WAV) first.

    Also, don't use fades on Flexed audio. First Flex, then bounce-in-place the flexed audio to a new track, then mute the original, apply fades to BIPped file.

    Sorry, I cannot, I have no psychic powers to allow me to see you setup, mixer, plugins, preferences etcetera etcetera. I don't even know what you mean by distortion, as it can come in many, many different types and sounds. So, ideally, I would like to hear the distorted bounce, first of all, then I'd like to see your track and channel strip and all active plugins' interfaces (the complete signal flow) AND last but not least (and maybe even not last because I may well have forgotten something): your bounce settings.
