    New to Logic, can't change channel strip output destination in Express 9 (seems locked to output 1-2), thanks!
    Hi, Is it a limitation in Logic 9 Express that I cannot change the output of a channel? Just wanna create some busses for my tracks but I cannot change the output of my channel to the bus. It is fixed on 'output 1-2', and when I click it does nothing, I don't get the menu with the option to route it to my busses... Thanks you for helping! Grts, Brice

    Hi Brice - Logic Express 9 is pretty old software now, but all output options should be accessible in the I/O section output popup menu near the bottom of the channel strip [where I assume you're seeing Output 1-2]. In Logic Pro there'd be options there for [interface] Output or Bus, and I'd be surprised if you couldn't route a track to a bus/Aux in Express as well. If you haven't already done so, try the routing in a new, fresh Project just to be sure it's not some kind of corruption in the current Project [and of course the usual troubleshooting steps -- close/reopen Logic, shutdown/restart the computer].. Maybe in Express you need to create the Aux [destination] first? Maybe you have to enable bussing in the Preferences? I'm just guessing, I never owned or used Express, and of course I have no way to check it out here at this point.. AFAIK the main difference between Pro and Express was the omission of a number of plug-ins, not any limitations on such a basic signal routing feature as bussing. [GarageBand is limited in that way, but Logic Express's feature set was always much closer to Logic Pro]. MPV has a number of older courses that cover Logic Pro 9, that should be applicable to Express as well: https://www.macprovideo.com/library/application/logic?afid=E470KLQ7r9 [under Logic 9] You could look through them for any videos on bussing, but while that particular functionality should apply to Express I can't say that for sure. However it seems like you know where to go to make that setting, you're just not seeing the expected options.. Just curious -- if you're a new Logic user why so old a version? The current version of Logic [Pro X] is only $200.
