    Auditioning MIDI regions
    Hi all, Quick question if I may. So, from watching Logic 101, I now know that I can audition audio in the audio bin, merely by clicking on it, but what about MIDI? If I record/program a MIDI region, how do I go back and just audition that region without either changing my cycle location points, or having to solo the track that the region is on, and playing the session from the start of that region? I just want to be able to audition a MIDI region like I would/could with an audio region in the bin. Thanks much, Laurence M. Schwarz Edmonds, WA

    Hi Lawrence & Welcome to the forums! You can't audition MIDI regions in the audio bin. However, what you're asking to do is essentially available by creating green apple loops. If you haven't got to the apple loops section yet, I won't spoil it for you. ;) Rounik

    Hi, One thing you can do is use the Event List to easily navigate through all your MIDI region. 1- Open Window > Event List. 2- Click on the "Link" button until it turns purple. You will have a list of all the MIDI regions in your current arrange page. 3- In the Event List, select the region you want to listen. 4-Hit the "S" key on your keyboard and use the "Play from Selection" Key Command to listen.

    Hi Rounik, Well, that's certainlyh good enough. All I wanted to just do was what I had written, and if there's a way outside of moving the playhead, or the cycle region, then that most definitely works for me :-) Thanks for your reply! -Laurence

    Hi Rounik, Errr.......O.K., I don't mean to be a complete idiot here, but I followed your instructions, and just created a test MIDI region with a little bass line. I then went to the Region drop down and clicked on "Add to Apple Loops Library" just like you recommended. Now I can't find it. Where on my computer would it be? I called it "Laurence's picked bass", and I searched for "Laurence", I searched for "Laurence's", I searched for "picked bass", but no how, no way can I find it on this machine! I even closed out the Logic session, and reopened a new one just to see if it was temporary? Nope. Still there. Well, at least now I know how to create Apple loops from MIDI regions. I just don't know how to get rid of them ;-) Thanks, Laurence

    Hi Rounik, It's me again, Laurence. Well, it's official.....I AM an idiot. So, I ditched the Apple loops search indexes, and voila, gone. What I find to be interesting, I looked in my local profile Library > Audio > Apple Loops > User Loops, and it wasn't there, yet it was still cached in the loop browser some how. Interesting feature. -Laurence

[/quote] Hi, It should be located in ~/Library>Audio/Apple Loops/User Loops/SingleFiles. Maybe you missed the last folder ? Christian
