    Recording Audio in Logic
    I just got finish with the 101 video and 1 question for me keeps coming up. Its about recording audio. I am used to recording a whole song from start to finish on a track via 8 track and then adding / bouncing tracks.( dry track ) With logic is it better for me to just do the verse and chorus and what other audio for the song and copy it for the other parts of the song? I want to be able to song write but not go crazy with audio editing.

    Hi shovelhead & welcome to the forums :) You know, it's really down to you and the way you prefer to record. Logic can fit your needs either way. If you want to capture the immediacy and performance aspect, then record the whole things through and use the punch in recording or takes features to record and edit small sections later. Often, producers record as many takes as possible to have as much material to substitute "unwanted" parts with. Sometimes a first recording is perfect (I've yet to achieve this ;) and it'll work fine. Then you must decide whether to record all parts simultaneously or whether to record track by track. Most pro's would do the later, unless of course recording a live performance. HTH Rounik

    Thanks, I was just worried about the audio file being to large say for instance a 4 min song and laying down a audio guitar track just for reference then going back and adding the other parts in smaller regions.

    Re: Recording Audio in Logic
    Hi, 4 minutes... should be absolutely fine! Of course it depends on the sample rate and bit depth of the audio file... but for example, yesterday I was recording some audio... one 6 and a half minute 24bit, 44.1Khz wave file was about 96mb. Do check you have enough space on your HD. But aside from that I believe there is a 2GB limit on wave and aiff files. There are some good tips on Punch recording and take folders in the Logic 101 tut. You can use it as a reference tool - again, I'd suggest finding the way that to record that suits your needs and make sense to you :) Rounik
