Actually, I have to bounce in real time because I have a few Steve H-style percussion randomizers playing that won't sound if I bounce off-line. But just to cover the bases, I did bounce off-line even though I knew I'd lose those instruments, just to check and see if it would skip the appropriate section off-line, and nope, still bounced the whole file.
No big deal, I was pretty sure I was actually going to have to cut the section out anyway. But in my mind it was so cool to set my locators backwards and just bounce it out without having to do all the drudgery of cutting and deleting, and making a cup of tea and looking out the window, and then being so worn out I'd have to go have a sit-down. Really, just sheer laziness on my part.
Well, that and, thinking I could bounce with a backwards locators selection made and have logic skip that section for me, I foolishly promised to email an mp3 with the section removed to the guy (in Boston) I'm working for when I had a very small window of time in which to do it. Like, 2 minutes before I was heading out the door. And though the operation you describe is pretty quick in itself, I'd eaten up all the time trying the other thing. So live and learn. (Though I repeat, for Logic developers, if there are any listening in, that would be a cool feature: to be able to bounce a song with a backwards cycle selection set. Please?)
And Adam, thanks for the congrats! Almost fell on the floor, as I don't usually win stuff like that. So now I'm buying Lottery tickets...
Hope you get lucky next time. Though I have to confess, this is the first time I've been a subscriber. I have, however, purchased and downloaded pretty much every Logic tutorial MPV offers (all but 2, as it turns out, now that I have the subscription and am looking more carefully). I need more than one listen, so I like to have the tutorials right here so I can go through them again (and again, and again, and again). In fact, I haven't even got through all the ones I've downloaded. I keep going back because I've forgotten what I'd already learned. So I'm actually using the subscription to check out a lot of the NON-Logic oriented tutorials.
I'm very grateful for Steve H, and Rounik, and Skye, and non-moderator but savvy guys like you who are so generous and willing to share their wisdom and know-how here in this forum. Thanks again. And say hello at the next NYCLUG. Nice to be able to put a face to the name.
Very best wishes,
