Logic Pro and Voiceover – How to. Track monitoring – understanding the settings

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Wrapping your head around the track monitoring in Logic – practical demonstration

Honestly, it’s a mindbend sometimes to understand why we hear things that we don’t want to hear, isn’t hearing what we do want to hear, and understanding how to control this behaviour makes for frustration free sessions. So let’s hear how it changes with the settings. It’s easy once grasping what Logic does.

Information:

Preferences I change:
Open the Logic preferences with Cmd + , (comma)
Go to toolbar, select “audio”
Exit the toolbar, now choose the “General” tab.
Navigate past the “Software monitoring” checkbox.
The checkbox of interest is called, “GarageBand requires the Input Monitoring button to be on, and the track to be either focused or record enabled.
It also says, “Input monitoring only for the focused track, and only when input monitoring is enabled (as in GarageBand)”
What confused me to start with was the simple wordiness of that checkbox and I’m wondering why it’s relevant to mention Garageband. Ever. 🙂

things to note:

There is some serious latency in this tutorial and it can be distracting. I will at some point redo it and clean up my rambling. Time permitting, that is.

Logic Pro and Voiceover – How to. Punching in, the basics.

Punching in with voiceover in Apple Logic Pro

Let’s be honest, we all make mistakes. and rerecording an entire track that sounds great but for that pesky sour note or bad pronounciation can be such a bother. So let’s just punch it in. It’s easy.

Information:

Shortcuts I use are:
“Set punch in locator by playhead”
“Set punch out locator by playhead”
“Toggle auto punch mode on/off”

things to note:

My settings are:
Track toolbar >No overlapp.
The track has no take folder at the start of this tutorial.
These options may not change anything, but it is worth noting. I’m demonstrating a simple punch in and do not consider possible complications.

If you have more information about the punching in process, please comment on this page.

Using the Automation event list with voiceover in Apple Logic Pro

Information:

Automation event list opens with Cmd + Ctrl + E.
The list shows only events that are currently on the selected track. If the shortcut Cmd + Ctrl + E does not work, it is most likely because the currently selected track does not contain any automation points.
If you have more information about the event list, please comment on this page.

About this song:


I read books. Lots of books.
I escape, sure I do. It’s my safe place.
And Recently I started listening to a podcast featureing fairytales the way they were written, not as they got cleaned up and polished by Disney. And those are disturbing, interesting, fascinating, and like a kick in the ass for creativity.
However, information overload is a thing, even if it’s self-imposed entertainment.
I’m not sure what that dark and absurd stuff does to the mind in the long run. Or if it’s even worth the bother considering.
As far as the name is concerned, I did read Beowulf recently – or an abridged podcast version. and I can’t help sympathize with Grendel. All he wanted was peace and quiet.

Lyrics

Grendel
Lyrics by Jenny K. Brennan

Once upon a time there was a poet. He wrote a story where they all died. And someones mother was insane in the swamp and they came to get her.
And once upon a time there was a princess in a tower and she got knocked up and died when she tried to escape. Got strangled on her hair.
And once upon a time there was a happily ever after.
Can you tie up this story line?
Can you soothe my Grendel?
Oh, I’ve been losing all my heroes cause I’ve been killing them all.
I don’t know what I’m on.
It’s gotta be something strong.
I’m a poet after all.
Oh, I’ve been losing my direction and maybe I’ve gone too far.
It’s all the stories I read.
It’s all the stories I read.
It’s all the stories I read.
I want to believe in fairytales.
Do you believe in happily ever after.
Do you believe love’s like a fairytale.
I wanna believe in happily ever after.
But I do believe that love is a fairytale.
Once upon a time.
Oh, I’ve been losing my perception.
Cause I’ve been turning it down.
I don’t know what I’ve done.
It’s gotta be something dumb.
I’m a poet after all.
Oh, I’ve been burning your instructions and maybe I’ve gone too far.
It’s all the stories I read.
I want to believe the fairytale.
[Solo] Do you believe in happily ever after.
Do you believe love’s like a fairytale.
I wanna believe in happily ever after.
But I do believe that love is a fairytale.
I am nothing if not a believer.
In fairy’s play, the hero’s quest, the maiden’s everlasting innocence.
I am nothing if not a believer.
Once upon a time there was a dragon. He hoarded all the people and all the cats. He traded on the market for something interesting to read.
Once upon a time there was a king who tried to marry his daughter. Because he couldn’t find anyone as perfect as her mother who died.
Once upon a time I believed in love.
Once upon a time.
Do you believe in happily ever after.
Do you believe love’s like a fairytale.
I wanna believe in happily ever after.
But I do believe that love is a fairytale.
Once upon a time.
