How do I clear the pattern menu in Ultrabeat?
Jan 15th, 2010, 09:27
Hi - I recently bought Steve's Ultrabeat Unleashed tutorial and love it. I'm following the tutorial and trying to create and save patterns. In the tutorial, Steve creates a sequence and stores it in the pattern currently selected in the pattern menu dropdown - for example number 1 (out of the 24). he also copies and pastes sequences to new numbers. I understand all this, but what I'm seeing is not what is in the tutorial. Basically, each time I instantiate Ultrabeat on a track, the dropdown pattern menu is filled with what I can only describe as gobbledygook. And what's more, the gobbledygook is different each and every time I instantiate UB on a different track. To provide examples: I just created a new instance of UB. Here is a screenshot of the pattern menu: [i]No matter if I save my images as gif, jpg or png I get a message that it's an invalid file type, so I've had to just give the image URLs here instead.[/i] http://definitiondesign.co.uk/logic/1.gif I then created a new instance. Here's the screenshot. You'll notice in this one that patterns 1, 2 and 3 are even grayed out, so I can't choose them anyway! http://definitiondesign.co.uk/logic/2.gif I asked a friend of mine who also has Logic what he sees, he sent me the following screenshot (which looks just like the tutorial): http://definitiondesign.co.uk/logic/3.gif So I'm obviously doing something wrong. I've tried choosing each pattern, ctrl-clicking and choosing 'clear' for each one, but nothing happens, the menu still looks the same. I've manually cleared all pattern information but still nothing changes. I know I'm missing something very obvious, but at the moment it's proving a real stumbling block. Any help appreciated. I'm running Logic 8 on Snow Leopard 10.6.2. Thanks!Reply
