Toggling tracks and effects in Logic using an electronic drum kit

Category: Music Comments: 4 comments

For a while now, I’ve been searching on the internet for some decent instructions on how to program toggles in Logic using a MIDI drum kit or keyboard. I’ve found a few hints here and there, but nothing that explains it from beginning to end. A couple of weeks back I finally managed to get a working setup so here’s a description of how to go about it.

The idea is simple. A toggle is a button that turns something on or off. The mute button is an example of a toggle. If it is enabled, a track is muted; if it is disabled,  the track is unmuted. I wanted to be able to trigger the toggling using the MIDI output from an electronic drum kit...

I just rearranged my 19″ rack. I took out the crackling Mackie, obsolete compressor and V-Amp, and rerouted some equipment so my setup is aimed more at actually making music instead of at trying to figure out nice audio routing. Suddenly my filterbank, guitar pedals, kaossilator and machinedrum came alive and produced this dark and sinister track called Bury me in a nameless grave:

Alesis Multimix 8 Line

Category: Music Comments: One comment

The schematic of the Alesis Multimix 8 Line is printed on top of its cover and not in the manual, which is kind of annoying if you’ve got it racked up. So I took a picture of it and uploaded it here for reference since I couldn’t find it anywhere else either. Click on the pic below for a large photo. I hope it’s useful to some people, it is to me at least. :)

The reason I needed the schematic is that I’m trying to figure out why my machine sometimes switches to mono output or left or right only signals. The Alesis website says: When a mono signal is present on any input or stereo send, the Left signal is automatically summed to mono for mono or stereo compatibility. I don’t understand the “or stereo send” part here, I suspect they mean “or stereo return”...
