    Track coloring
    Hey everyone, I'm fairly new to Logic and I was wondering if there's a way to get the tracks to automatically change color when you create them. (Like they do in Pro Tools) Or do I just have to manually change all the colors?

    Hi coolhandchad, welcome to the macprovideo forums! By default the track's colors are set to blue (audio) and green (software instrument). You can turn on/off the color bar for track headers by right-clicking on a track header and choosing: "Configure Track Header". But, it won't automatically assign different colours to newly created tracks unfortunately... One way, is to create a template. Let's say you often work with 16 audio tracks. Create a new project with x number of audio tracks and manually assign a new color to each of them. Save the project as a template: File > Save as template... Hope that helps Rounik

    Yeah, that helps. I hadn't really thought about using a template. Thanks Rounik. Chad
