    It was the Churchill quote that threw me.

    Hi

     

    In order for us to help you, it would be a great help if you could possibly be more concise with your posts

    Honestly, I find it incredibly difficult to decode your post, such that I think the questions were (?):

    My point being that I can't record/practice the solo part without hearing the rest and me. Would a Mackie 402 VLZ3 do the trick?

     

    Probably not... you should be able to achieve what you need within Logic (see Pancenter's post above)

    I have tried some of the approachs you mention above. I sent the solo software inst. output to a bus and sent the bus to stereo output 1-2,nada. The bus input had only a greyed out stereo out 1-2.

     

     

    This makes no sense to me. Perhaps you could post a screenshot of your mixer?

     

    and

    Just one more question,if this BESPECO MIDI Interface requires no drivers but shows up as online connected to Ports 1 and 2 then it has been recognized by the Audio/MIDI set up, right? and should work,it does work but these cables all over the place are insane.

    Is this a question, an observation, or an expression of your dislike of cables?

    Before I can record I must practice a LOT which requires hearing not only me on my breath controller, but accompanimen too,it used to work this way-select then record enable and mute the track, doing this in previous Pro versions worked as well as express, if the track I want to control isn't muted the sequencer will of course playback what is in the score for that track,this gets in the way of my trying to add dynamic expression

     

    In Logic's  Preferences/Audio  click on the "General" tab.

     

    Do you see..    Track Mute/Solo:     set it to  CPU-Saving (Slow Response)

     

    Quit Logic, restart and see if that helps.

    You are probably (a guess) expecting the behaviour that would be with Preferences:Audio:General Track Mute/Solo Slow in Logic 8/9?

     

     

    Exhausting.... ;-)

    Extremely so!

     

    After I posted that I went back and read your early post as I thought I'd seen it before, I assumed it didn't work for the OP, after going through all the other rigmarole, it's the only answer.

    It is mentioned but never explained how to do it,typical RTFM joke.

     

    I totally understand what you say and I'm 61 too - that was my point - I'm not an audio engineer that thinks about that stuff for quite a few hours a day on a regular basis - if I'd done that for some time I ought to be a pretty forking good by one by now - I have all kinds of things to consider and give priorities to.

     

    You must be bothered about getting somewhere with this (yeah, for yourself first), because you wouldn't keep coming back here, for example, would you ? CCT and Pancenter must have given you some ways to think about it all and not all realisations come to me at once anyway, you know...

    If you open Logic's Help Menu and type  "Input Channel Strip"  its all right there, the explanation of where it can be created and it's purpose. If the manual says the Input channel strip object can only be created in the Environment the next search would be creating environment objects. In it's own way, Logic's layout is very logical. It helps if you have an idea of what object oriented programming is, you tend to see Logic as a single entity instead of separate screens, functions...etc. Whether you're looking at the Arrange page or the Environment, you're actually looking at the same thing.

     

    But I agree with CCT in that 55plus could've explained the procedure he was trying to accomplish in a single, short paragraph, it was very difficult to decipher what he was trying to do.

    I will do that instead of

    buying the Mackie.

    I think that is really a very sensible decision - if this guy knows his stuff, you will undoubtedly get a lot of answers that you need and be able to make some proper progress - we all have to keep finding a way of moving forward.

     

    I'm in the north of England (I have visited Bath, which is beautiful) and I know what you mean about being at our time in life when one begins to lose one's friends, its just the inevitable course of nature, I'm afraid.

    Skepticism and verbosity are fine as long as they serve your needs and not prove a hindrance.

     

    Hope George and you hit it off and gets your setup going.
