Hey all I know what I'm looking for is not called "sound banks" but that's the closes I could get. What I'm looking for is the instruments sounds file to external devices (XR, ES,etc...). Coming from PT I know they call it the .midnam files, not sure what Logic calls them. Basically, its a file that pretty much has a pointer to all sounds in your extrental device allowing you to change sounds within the program instead of on the external device.


Thanks in advance.

    Believe it or not, Logic doesn't support those sound file names. You might be able to find a logic song online somewhere with the instruments you need. Otherwise, you may have to set it up yourself and either type in the patch names or paste them from a patch list.

    Hi,

    You are referring to "Program Name" banks, for external Midi synths and such.

    Logic comes with a huge library on the install DVD. If your particular synth is not there, you can search the web and see if anyone out there has made a Multi-instrument with the patch names.

    Of course, any custom patch names you have will not exist, you have to create those yourself. And, if you can stilll download the "Soundiver" public beta from Apple, thisa software will help you create them with less fuss. Search Apple's download section.

    Where are the program banks? I've never seen them. Are they new to 7.2?

    Hi,

    They are old as the hills. So old, in fact, they do not automatically install anymore.They should be in your "Environment Toolkit" or something like that, in your Install DVD. Search in your Install DVD.
