    Modulate (LFO?) between completely different audio track sounds
    Hi and thank you for entertaining my somewhat novice question. This is my first posting here. I'm using Logic Pro X 10.5.1. I'm searching for some way to switch in some control-able, sync to the BPM-able, LFO-like manner between two completely different guitar sounds applied to the same played guitar recording. For instance, the recorded guitar's sound might switch between a classic jazzy guitar tone and an echo-y distorted rock sound, alternating on every quarter note. Hopefully, that modulation between the two tonalities could be set to happen on whatever frequency I prefer for the particular song. Is this possible without doing backflips? I was thinking it would be great to be able to have the same recording on 2 different tracks, modulating alternating volume between the two tracks with some LFO or such, but I have no idea how to approach this! I hope I'm explain gin this well enough. Again, thank you for even entertaining how this might be done.

    Re: Modulate (LFO?) between completely different audio track sounds
    Hi - It sounds like what you're describing could be easily done by Automating the Bypass buttons of two different plug-ins, having one turn on when the other turns off. [Apparently automation could also be done with the new Step Sequencer, but only on Pattern tracks, which probably doesn't apply to your scenario] I've attached a Logic course [above], in case there's something in there that gives you any ideas. The course discusses [regular] Automation in videos 46-51.

    Thank you, Joe!
    Much appreciated. I'll try this approach.
