You can open GB projects in LE, but you can't open LE projects in GB.

Currently Being ModeratedAug 6, 2007 12:48 PM (in response to 55plus)I think maybe I don;t know what I'm talking about, but let me try to help.
Articulation and expression? By articulation do you mean velocity? And by expression do you mean perhaps something like sustain or vibrato?
Assuming that is what you meant then do you still have the midi file somewhere so that you can open it in LE?
If so, then just reopen it, open the matrix editor and adjust the velocity of the notes there. You can do this in the GB midi editor as well. As far as the expression, which i'm assuming is some sort of modulation, I think only LE will let you use hyper draw to change that info in the matrix editor. Of course a lot of this can be done in the event list of LE as well.
I hope this helps.Macbook, Choose

Currently Being ModeratedAug 7, 2007 12:52 AM (in response to Ryan Johnson)Thank you for your kind reply. The term velocity has been adopted by Logic to mean several things,ie:in some cases it seems as though it controls the volume, but the JamPack4 Orchestra instruments seem to use it in it's original meaning-the strength with which a player strikes the keys of an acoustic piano, possibly also the strength guiatrists can vary while plucking the string; the orchestra instruments have varying types [gentle or hard accent] and it would seem no one knows how to access these controls without a foot pedal-which most likely has an independant recording system like the track automation (genial idea). The editing in GB(and possibly Logic Pro) is divided into several catagories, 2 of which are Expression and foot pedal *niether of which can be used in notation view*. Expresssion is logic's term for the dynamic range soft to loud and back, that's why two foot pedals are available: on/off for traditional piano sustain function, and a '0 t 127' graduation pedal, the doc. on the JamPack4DVD gives a complete list of midi 0 to 127 control options for articulations-unless an Apple Augur wants to step in here-it would seem these controls are only available when a pedal is connected-logical actually-unfortunate not to have any written help on the subject from the developers (hint). Many thanks anyway for your help, it gives me options to try out (since I have nothing to do but waste time), events list would work if i knew what Apple means with those articulation numbers and how to differentiate between velocity and articulation values, Thanks also for your comment about the graphic editors, I knew of this but just prefer working in musical natation view, and if you play around with the GB versions you will see that the options differ tremendously between notation and graphic. editorsMac Mini, Choose, M-Audio 49e USBMIDI Controller
Currently Being ModeratedOct 4, 2008 3:11 AM (in response to 55plus)I give up, I've had no answer to this on many other forums and I expect the parameters I'm wanting to change will appear when I ask Logic to do something that requires them.
