    Re: Recording Virtual Instruments
    I'm probably not so young and little as you think:) But I'm glad hackers get some respect:) it worked years ago before the first synthesizer was even invented and we were running oscillators that repair TVs through the first Echoplez tape delays - one vinyl getting recorded and then bootlegged - lost in total obscurity -thirty years later the cult legend surfaces - you can see it here: www.silverapples.com I was in the original band I wish I had the time and money or a secure job doing this all day long - or the chance to sit down with someone who could give me one week of hands on lessons doing it the "right way" I'd be very glad about that - in the meantime - I continue hacking away as best I can! odessaflyer

    If you want to perform during a bounce, you can't! Bouncing accepts no user input. I bought a program called WireTap Pro that I use to record my performances. I put WTP into record and then play my Logic song. It captures everything perfectly.

    Or, just use QuickTime Pro ... File > Record Audio (or something like that) ... does the same thing as wiretap ... :)

    [/quote] The Noise Gate trick is the only way I know to record a virtual instrument played live as an audio track. You don't really use the Noise Gate as an effect, just it's Side Chain Monitoring capability. It's a bit complicated at first, but it works great. However, as Martin said, I don't think you need to do that in your situation. In a typical situation, you would record the Virtual Instruments as MIDI data. That way, it's much easier to edit the data. I hope it helps![/quote] This hack is not necessary anymore! With Logic 8 it is very easy to record a software instrument to an audio track : 1-Insert a soft inst on a track and send its ouput to a bus. 2-Select the bus in the input of an audio track. 3-Make sure Record is enable on the audio track and select the inst track. 4-Hit Record and play the inst... it will be recorded as an audio file. Very nice!

    Besides, I believe that the noise gate work-around will only record in mono... solution: Upgrade!
