Re: New to Logic, can't change channel strip output destination in Express 9 (seems locked to output 1-2), thanks!
Hi Brice -
Logic Express 9 is pretty old software now, but all output options should be accessible in the I/O section output popup menu near the bottom of the channel strip [where I assume you're seeing Output 1-2]. In Logic Pro there'd be options there for [interface] Output or Bus, and I'd be surprised if you couldn't route a track to a bus/Aux in Express as well. If you haven't already done so, try the routing in a new, fresh Project just to be sure it's not some kind of corruption in the current Project [and of course the usual troubleshooting steps -- close/reopen Logic, shutdown/restart the computer]..
Maybe in Express you need to create the Aux [destination] first? Maybe you have to enable bussing in the Preferences? I'm just guessing, I never owned or used Express, and of course I have no way to check it out here at this point.. AFAIK the main difference between Pro and Express was the omission of a number of plug-ins, not any limitations on such a basic signal routing feature as bussing. [GarageBand is limited in that way, but Logic Express's feature set was always much closer to Logic Pro].
MPV has a number of older courses that cover Logic Pro 9, that should be applicable to Express as well:

You could look through them for any videos on bussing, but while that particular functionality should apply to Express I can't say that for sure. However it seems like you know where to go to make that setting, you're just not seeing the expected options..
Just curious -- if you're a new Logic user why so old a version? The current version of Logic [Pro X] is only $200.
