I am trying to duplicate the processes shown in the Core Logic Tutorials '154 Moving Objects', '155 Layering Channel Strips' and '156 The Instrument Object' as I wish to have one MIDI object (on one channel strip in the arrange page) triggering synths on several channel strips/faders. I am having 2 problems with this.
1) If I COPY the faders (all with ES2 plugins) to a new environment layer (as recommended in the tutorial) and cable them together in series, only the first fader's ES2 plugin fires. If I TRANSFER the faders, it DOES work. I would prefer to copy if possible. Can a group of COPIED faders be made to work??
2) If, having transferred faders 1, 2 and 3 to this new environment layer, I cable the faders in PARALLEL by creating a new MIDI instrument object by clicking 'New>Instrument' and then, as per tutorial 156:
a) Setting its ports to 'Off'
b) Cabling from the MIDI instrument object to fader 1,
c) Cabling from the MIDI instrument object to fader 2,
d) Cabling from the MIDI instrument object to fader 3, only fader 1's ES2 plugin fires. According to the tutorial, all 3 should fire.
Clearly, something is missing. What do I need to do to enable my Logic 9.1.4 to do what the tutorial says it should do?
