  • Sync Problems - Importing Garageband FIles Into Logic Studio 8

    Hi Guys,
    I was wondering if anyone can PLEASE HELP?!!
    I'm having a real headache when I open my Garageband files in Logic Studio 8 - most of the real instrument tracks end up out of sync with the software tracks!!
    For example, I opened a song in Logic 8 (mostly Apple loops/beats & software synths - but with some rhythm guitar parts and bass) and the guitars and bass are a few beats in front of the rest of the song.
    The same thing happens (sometimes) with the vocal tracks too...
    It's become a real nightmare for me - I'm due to go into a professional studio in a few weeks time to start mixing my (Garageband) songs (in Logic). Aaaargh! Pressure!
    A previous advisor kindly advised me that I may be exhausting my Mac's processing capabilities.
    However, I use an iMac (250GB, 3GB of RAM, 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo). It's only around 1 year old - so I'm sure it should be man enough for the job.
    However, the studio I am using to mix my album have the latest up-to-date MacPro's - and when they open the Garageband files I've supplied to them (on dvd) in Logic 8....they are having the same problem. The tracks are out of sync...
    I've supplied them with both the Garageband files (as an exported project) and the imported Logic 8 version...
    I just don't get it.
    The songs play okay in Garageband. (Ok, I get the occasional processor I lock the tracks, problem solved).
    I'n not using any fancy plug-ins.
    I don't have any other applications running.
    I'm not sure what the RPM of my iMac hard drive is (can anyone advise me how I can find this out please?) but I'm sure that can't be an issue either....
    If anyone can please help, I'll be so grateful.
    I've been working on my album for 11 months now - and I'm about to go into the studio to mix it in late August.....and after all my hard work, I'd be so relieved if anyone can help me avert a catastrophe!
    Many thanks folks (in advance) if you can help.....

    And it's the same in Logic?
    Also, if you have plugins on the main output or busses - what is your PDC setting in your audio prefs? Make sure it's set to "All".
    Yes, it's the same in Logic (44.100).
    No sure about PDC settings etc as I am not familiar with Logic.
    However, I'm not using any plug-ins - and when I check under Logic/preferences/audio/general - "Plug in delay" is set to "Compensation: All"
    (Sorry to sound like a novice, but as I mentioned in my original post, I'm not familiar with Logic........but the studio where I'm taking my album to be mixed is)!

  • Using Logic Express 8 to open .aif or iso song files from Logic Pro

    I can open the song but only the lead vocal track has volume. I get a message that some of the files are "5 bit" and can't work with Logic Express 8. Is there a problem converting these files from Logic Pro to Logic Express 8 or do I have another problem

    assuming no one else responds with a more complete answer, can you be a bit more specific of exactly what the message says in full.
    Does it give you any indication which files?
    Logic Pro does have more plug-ins and features that will not be backward compatible, especially if it some plug in that is required that comes with LP but not LE.
    I haven't been able to find any reference about 5-bit - hence the need perhaps for a more complete message output.

  • Sorry, new.  How to get rid of files left from firewire transfer from old to new mac shows up in finder.

    When I transferred files by firewire from a macbook to a macbook (snow leopard) I find some type of files in the finder of the newer mac.   They look like
    user files and appear to show network connections or something I do not recognize, I don't seem to be able to delete these files for some reason.  Is there
    any way short of formatting and starting over please??

    The best method is to archive the contents of the TC to a disk.. archive is available via the airport utility.
    Simply plug in a USB drive large enough to store all the material presently on the TC, 1TB or 2TB or 3TB.. whichever model it is.
    Archive I have drawn red box around.
    Once the archive has completed ..
    Use the Erase disk.. just the Quick erase is ok.. takes a couple of min and then you have a nice empty drive to start loading TM backups on.

  • How to save kontakt sample files in Logic Pro X project?

    I'm using Kontakt (Komplete, Native Instruments) as my samples for my midi in Logic Pro X, and my sample libraries are stored in an external hard drive which I bring around.
    I need to send my Logic file over to another computer which will not have my hard drive that contains my sample libraries.
    Is there a way to save my Kontakt Sample midi files together with Logic's folder, so when I open Logic without my ext Hard Drive, the midi can still be read?
    I tried clicking Save As --> Organize my project as a "Folder", and ticked EVERYTHING --- Audio Files, EXS instruments and samples, Ultrabeat samples, Space Designer impulse responses, Movie file, Include Apple Sound Library Content.
    But when I unplugged my external hard drive (which my sample files are stored), and clicked open that logic file which i saved, windows pop up saying it cannot locate my samples.
    Is this a bug in Logic Pro X, or am I doing something wrong?
    Or is it totally not possible to copy sample files over?

    Logic will not copy over any 3rd party samples etc. If you really need to, you would need to copy the appropriate libraries manually, though with Kontakt, some libraries would need to be re-authorised.

  • Can't get songs from my iPod into the library on my new mac

    I recently had to get a new hard-drive on my dell laptop, and iTunes was uninstalled from the computer. When I re-installed iTunes, my iPod was not being recognized by the laptop, so none of my songs on my iPod were in the library anymore.
    Now I have a new MacBook, and my iPod is being recognized, but I can't get most of my songs from my iPod into the library in iTunes.
    I'm sure there is an easy solution, but I can't figure it out!
    Any help is much appreciated!!!

    If you have any iTunes Music Store purchases the transfer of purchased content from the iPod to authorised computers was introduced with iTunes 7. A paragraph on it has been added to this article: Transfer iTunes Store purchases using iPod
    The transfer of content from other sources such as songs imported from CD is designed by default to be one way from iTunes to iPod. However there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve music files and playlists from your iPod. I use Senuti but have a look at the web pages and documentation for the others too, you'll find that they have varying degrees of functionality and some will transfer movies, videos, photos and games as well. This is just a small selection of what's available, you can also read reviews of some of them here: Wired News - Rescue Your Stranded Tunes
    Senuti Mac Only
    PodView Mac Only
    PodWorks Mac Only
    iPodDisk PPC Mac Only (experimental version available for Intel Macs)
    iPodRip Mac & Windows
    YamiPod Mac & Windows
    Music Rescue Mac & Windows
    iPodCopy Mac & Windows
    There's also a manual method of copying songs from your iPod to a Mac or PC. The procedure is a bit involved and won't recover playlists but if you're interested it's available at this link: Two-way Street: Moving Music Off the iPod

  • 2 music media folders containing songs, want to combine into one before moving to new Mac.

    Hi, I've 2 music folders on my account containing music media, one named iTunes Music, the other Music. One is @ user/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/iTunes Music, the other is @ user/Public/iTunes Music/Music. This is on a g4 fp iMac using os 10.5.8 leopard, and iTunes 10.6.3.. I remember moving the folder iTunes Music/Music to the public folder many years back so as to be available for other accounts. I don't remember how that went except that it must have worked at the time, and probably wasn't used much by other accounts if at all, but has worked fine for me through the years, and now I've this to clean up before moving all the music media, and play lists to the new (to me) iMac, as I want to leave years of hoarded items/clutter behind so I'll be able to function more efficiently. 
    I'd like to combine all songs into one folder and eliminate any duplicates before moving the music files, and play lists to the newer iMac core 2 duo 2.66 GHz with iTunes If anyone would be willing to guide me on how to do this, I would be most grateful. What I've been reading on this subject of transferring the media, and play lists to another mac looks to be pretty straight forward. If it wasn't for the two separate folders containing music files I don't think I'd have much of a problem, but I'm unsure of how to proceed, and avoid losing any content other than duplicates.
    Thank you,

    Would manually dragging and dropping files from the folder Music to the folder iTunes Music, but not any duplicate files, be the way to start or is there a simpler way to combine the two? My library isn't large but it would still take some time, and I'm unsure of what would be the result.

  • TS2972 I can see the song titles in itunes shared library on my new imac  but songs will not play. I have a pc with wifi network that the main music library is on. tried saving songs from pc to an external drive then to new mac but thats not working eithe

    attempted to transfer itunes music from pc to new imac. didn't work. apple suggest using sharing method. main library of music is on pc. did those steps and shared library shows up on mac but when you click on the song to play it doesn't play or maybe ther is no content? any suggestions?

    Hi there,
    It sounds like your purchased content is not transfering via a flash drive. It may be easier to re-download this contnet directly from iTunes. Take a look at the article below for mor information.

  • Adding songs and editing info is VERY slow on brand new mac

    Hello, I have a brand new macbook computer. I'm trying to add songs to my iTunes library, which is mostly empty at this point. As I try to add songs to iTunes, they take quite a bit of time to get added into iTunes. If I try to edit their info (through Get Info), it takes forever for the information to go through. I have my preferences set to organize my music library folder. I noticed that only songs that are in my iTunes Library folder take a long time to get added (so, adding music that's in a random folder on the computer and isn't in my organized library folder gets added to iTunes very quickly, but if I'm adding music that's going to get organized in my library folder, it's very slow.)
    I don't remember it being this slow on my older macbook. Any ideas as to why this is going so slow? It's clearly not a RAM or size problem, since this is a brand new macbook.

    Hi JGG,
    Thank you for your reply. I forgot to mention that I house my iTunes library on an external drive. I understand that, of course, anything hosted off of my computer would be slower than if it was on my laptop, but this still seems much slower than it was on my older computers (where I also used an external to host the music). Also, I mentioned earlier that if I added music to iTunes that was in a random folder on the external, it would show up instantly on the playlist; but if I added music that was within my iTunes library-folder on the external, it would upload very slowly. Even after it's on the iTunes playlist and "organized" within the Library-folder with the correct titles/folder names, just editing a song (for example, to change the year) would take a long time as well.
    Edit: And, I just realized, there is a big delay when I try to click on a song to play. The little spinning color wheel pops up for a few seconds every single time I click to play a new song out of my playlist. I'm sure that NEVER happened in the past on my old macbook when I also used an external drive.
    Thanks for your help!

  • Installing saved files from a hard drive on to a new mac!

    My Mac Book Pro suffered damage and has been replaced. Everything had been saved via Time Machine on an external hard drive. This question may seem silly but before sinking it all across, do I have to re-install my programs such as Final Express or is that data part of what has been saved?

    Have a read at the Time MAchine FAQs from our local TM guru Pondini

  • What's the best way to (re)install Logic Studio? Need Help.

    I bought Logic Studio a few months ago and installed it on my new MacBook Pro 2.4Ghz with 2G Ram, 160G hard drive @ 7200 rpm. Being new to Logic, at install, I just put all 40+ gigs of content on the computer. After a while I considered putting the Apple Loops (roughly 12gigs) onto an external hard drive to save space on my computer, just to see if it would work, then consider moving more content over later. After doing this the Logic application couldn't find the Apple Loops, and I couldn't find a way to help it see the new path, so my Apple Loops were essentially rendered useless (since I had already deleted them from the computer). So I stopped right there, and haven't done anything else. Just worked with Logic without using Loops, which I have to say is still an incredible program.
    What also seemed strange was this: In moving the Apple Loops, the available disk space on the computer didn't seem to change much. It went down a few gigs, but not the 12 or so I was expecting. Not sure why that is. It seems like Logic and all the content is actually taking up around 50 gigs or so on my computer (and the Apple Loops are supposedly gone or not available). What is that about?
    Feeling like I had really fouled things up, I called Apple Care. They said that the content of Logic is stored in many places in the computer's libraries and system folders, but it was really confusing trying to locate all of it, because the info they sent was from Logic 7 and older versions of GarageBand. I guess Logic 8 is too new for them to have anything on it. There is no uninstall for Logic Studio. But they strongly recommended that I perform an Erase and Install, and then re-install all my software including Logic, and then assign the hard drive I wanted the content in. That would open up a lot of the computer's hard drive space, they said. It seemed like an extreme measure to take for such a small blunder, and I haven't tried it yet, but will if it's the best option.
    If I do this, is running Logic content (i.e. Loops, Impulse Responses, Jam Packs, etc.) from an external hard drive (and the one I have to use is 5400rpm--is that too slow or am I getting too picky?) the best way to go, or should I have all Logic material coming from the same machine? How do I get some of my hard drive space back?
    Has anyone out there experienced this too? Is there anything documented about where the content is stored for Logic Studio? Is Erase and Install really the best thing to do in this situation?
    So many questions...

    Hey Blue,
    Let me see if I can help you a bit.
    Logic Studio has 28+ gb of loops. Almost 23 for STP and 6 for the Jam Packs, etc. They should be located in /Library/Audio/Apple Loops/Apple (that's the default install loc.). Copy them to an external drive and then delete them from your main drive. Go to /Library/Audio/Apple Loops Indexes and delete those text files. Now go to /Library/Preferences/Soundtrack Pro and delete those text files, too (more Loop Indexes).
    Now open Logic Pro and it will say 'No Apple Loops found'. Click 'OK' and then open your Loop Browser. Drag all the Jam Pack folders, STP folder, etc. that you want to use onto the Loop Browser. Logic will ask you if you want to 'Copy to Loops Folder' or 'Current Location'. Choose 'Current Location'. Logic will now index the loop folders.
    NOTE: You can change the names of the folders to suit your liking. For example: I added the 2, 3, 4, 5 after the Jam Pack names to make it look smoother on the popup menu and changed iLife Sound Effects to Sound Effects - iLife and Apple Loops for STP to STP. Now the Jam Packs 1-5 come up first on the popup menu and the FX stay at the bottom. I likee!!
    Now, if you like you can take your EXS Factory Samples and Ultrabeat Samples, 3.35 & .889 gb respectively, and copy them to an external drive. I have mine in the same place as my Jam Packs, etc. You can find these files in /Library/Application Support/Logic. Toss out the originals and put ALIASES from the external drive back into the /Lib/App Sup/Logic folder.
    Also, if you open STP and click the Search tab in the right pane you will see a button that says 'Setup' next to it. Click that and you can use the checkboxes in the window to activate/deactivate any of the loop folders available.
    A clean install is the best IMO if you have a little time because a) you DO NOT have to install GB at all (that saves the .aif file size - Logic Studio uses .caf files at half the size of the originals) b) Logic Studio will install the extra GB or Logic 7 content if you need it at it's reduced size. It will basically get rid of all the old clutter that you do not need. Only install what JP's you want and move the bigger stuff to an external.
    Rock up Logic and it should all be in place. That procedure saved me 32.5 gb on my main drive.
    NOTE #2: You have another 12 gb (if you installed all Jam Packs) that reside in the /Library/Application Support/GarageBand/Instrument Library/Sampler. These are the Jam Pack Instruments & Sampler files for World, Symphony, etc. They cannot be moved from the startup HD (as far as I can tell). So keep that in mind if you don't want a certain JP.
    Hope that helps,

  • Exporting 7.2 song files

    does anybody know how to export logic 7.2 song files to logic 4.8 or equivalent. read manual but that option doesnt appear in my > file > export menu.
    G5 2.0 ghz   Mac OS X (10.4.6)  

    I don't think there is a "Direct" way anymore. In version 6, there was an "Export as 4.8" option, but that has been removed. If you, or someone you know, has version 6 still active on their system, you could perhaps get the song back to version 6, and then go from there.
    Keep in mind the differences between version 7 and version 4 are quite significant, so it's possible that option was eliminated simply because they aren't even close to compatible anymore. For starters, the OS's are different. version 4 was OS 9 only, and version 7 is OSX only.
    Another option, would be to "Export All Tracks As Audio" from version 7, and then simply import all the audio files into 4.8. Or if it's MIDI only, perhaps Exporting as a MIDI file would work, at least as far as getting the MIDI information transfered.

  • ITunes Song File Will Not Upload To iTunes Match/Cloud

    I have two song files that are failing to upload. Both files play fine. I have tried creating new AAC files. I have reimported the files from the CD using error check. I have turned off iTunes match and turned it back on, I have deauthorized the computer and reauthorized it. Other files on the CD imported correctly and uploaded. I have tried adding both files one at a time. One file is 6 MB and one file is 4.5 MB.
    iTunes Match gets to step of uploading the file, hesitates, stops and restarts the process. Thanks for any suggestions,

    These are 2 song files imported from 2 CDs using iTunes as AAC MP4 files. All the other songs on the 2 CDs have uploaded to the iTunes Match cloud with no problems.
    Importing one of the songs as MP3 (4.5 MB became 4.1 MB) worked. However, when I repeated the process with the second problem file, iTunes Match again fails at the upload step. Seems to be random, but your suggestion worked for one out of two.
    Thanks. Can anyone think of anything else to try?
