We had a Logic related question come in recently from listener George Majerus via the pro tools expert podcast. It’s a subject that I’ve seen come up over and over in various forums and discussions. Thank you, George, for asking about time stamps and bouncing in mono. Let’s explore the answers:

Hoo boy... my spidey senses are already tingling as Logic users the world over wince at the title of this post. But I'm standing my ground here:
I prefer Flex Pitch Over Melodyne For Pitch Editing in Logic.
I am not a keyboard player. Sure, I play a little. I have a little bit of technique. And I know what notes to play and when to play them. But I don’t have the piano technique to execute my ideas at fast tempos. Enter Logic’s tempo sets as a convenient way to switch between a slower part entry tempo, where I can play in my parts with the timing and feel that I want, and a faster playback tempo, where the parts are played back at full speed.
In the first part of this article, we looked at creating an Articulation ID set for a third party library from scratch. Creating articulations on the Articulations pane, and setting the transformation in the Output Pane of the Articulation Set Editor were the first steps, making this articulation set usable for editing articulations after notes were entered. In this article, I’ll show you how to set up create and customize key switch assignments for real-time articulation switching, how to use score symbols for articulation switching, and how to make your Articulation ID set portable between projects.
In this Expert Tutorial, contributor Chris Vandeviver walks through dicing up and creating your own electronic kits by using Flex Time to quickly break up drum loops, exporting the samples back into the Project Browser, and dragging and dropping the samples right into an Empty kit.
The elusive ingredient we all always seem to be searching for is the perfect emulation of analog circuit components and characteristics. Hear for yourself if True Iron by Kazrog fills the need.
