    Transfer tracks to w/plugins to another Logic song
    HI everyone, I am sharing a session with my buddy in NYC. I sent him a rough stereo mix in logic pro and he blew over it with (sax,Trumpet,Flute,etc). How can I import his tracks with plugins to my master song? I hope this clear. thanks in advance. PS. we have the same plugins.

    Why not just have him send you his project file? Have him save it "with assets" (but only check off the items that are absolutely necessary), zip up the file, and have him FTP it to you.

    If you're using Logic 9, then you can use the Selective Import Feature: [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/blog/logic-pro/project-project-import-features-logic-9[/url] This is much easier than opening two projects simultaneously and copying and pasting between them. Hope that helps R

    Indeed! Besides, having more than one project open at a time is not a good idea.

    Hi llear... Well then I'd go through your friends project and save channel strip settings for every track. Take a screenshot to help. Then in your project rebuild the tracks and channel strip settings. Next, open up both projects and then copy and paste regions from one to the other. Cheers R

    Agreed... Here's my suggested procedure, which is a little different from what Rounik suggested (with apologies)... Save channel strips for each of your friend's tracks as Rounik suggested. I take it that your friend played acoustic instruments? If so, then he's provided you with audio tracks and in that case, while you're in his project, select all of the audio [b]regions[/b] in the arrange page and CMD-C copy. Now those audio tracks are in the clipboard. Close that project out completely without saving. Open YOUR version of the project and create the requisite number of channel strips for your friend's parts. While you do this, do not use CMD-X or CMD-C, as it will blow out the clipboard. Once you're done setting up the channels, use the command "paste at original position", not CMD-V. Voila, those audio regions will now be in your version of the song.

    Oh nice! I like that method Ski... "Paste at original position" is going to make everything a lot smoother than my suggested method. :)

    I just absolutely love paste-at-original-position. I rarely ever use CMD-V. The amount of time I save by using... Wait, I'm not going to say any more. I'm going to write a quick tip on this. Shhhhhh, don't tell anyone, cuz then they'll know what's coming! Oh, um, er...
