    Tutorial request: Drum maps/ edit
    Hi, I'm a new boy to Logic. After around 20 years of Steinberg products (mostly Cubase) I've finally gone for Logic 8 after reading all the good things about it. Like a lot of Cubase users, the thing I miss most is the dedicated drum edit page. I have tried setting something similar up using the Hyper editor and the Environment (this was done by reading an artical in SOS magazine and following it bindly- i.e. I wasn't sure why I was doing things, just following orders!) The article was obviously written long before Logic 8 arrived, so it may be out of date. I've got myself into problems trying to move notes in the hyper editor (seems you can only move them in chunks of whatever the grid is set to- but not if the grid is set to "off") and a few other funnies. I'm not knocking Logic, so far I like it a lot, but after spending many years with Cubase's drum edit page, I'm trying to get a similar workflow going in Logic. Anyway, I hope this is the correct forum to be posting these requests. Cheers, Davy

    Hey Davy, I cover that very topic my September Tips and Tricks videos on Hyper Sets... or, you could load can use the new grid editor in Ultrabeat to program you drums!

    Hi Steve, Thanks for the reply. I've just purchased the TNT subscription which is downloading as I type, so I'm hoping I can see the September issue, even though it's now October? If I need to pay extra to see previous months, I'm happy to do that. I did have a quick look at the grid editor in Ultrabeat. From my brief look It seems beats are going to be exactly on the beat- I'd like them not to be, and the other thing is I have (and love ) EZ drummer, so I'm hoping to use it. I don't think I can use EZ drummer within Ultrabeat? I think the hyper edit is the way for me. I just got a bit mixed up with moving things like hihats just a wee bit. Old dog and new tricks! Anyway, I'll wait for this download and watch the tutorial. For a newbie like myself, these tutorials are great. Pretty good price, especially for us in the UK with the dollar rate being in our favour at the moment! Cheers, and thanks again for the reply.

    I often use EZPlayer (free from ToonTrack) to push midi beats to Ultrabeat, EXS and Drumcore. It's a simple thing to manipulate the mapppings from within logic's environment if you run into issues. Shaun

    Hi Shaun, So, you use the midi files in ezy free? I'm perverted in that I like to create my own beats (I know, I should really get out more!) I'm still a bit slow on the environment and what it does. I have just made a drum map for EZ drums Vintage kit. Only took an hour! Thanks to the tutorial mentioned above, I almost understood what was going on! Time for a screen break.....

    :) I'm not a drummer (but I've got rhythm!) so I usually start with a midi groove, adapt and adjust from there. If you're new to MVP, check out the Mastering Logic and Environment videos they sell....excellent resources...got me up to speed quickly after switching from Sonar to Logic about 3 months ago. Shaun

That's more than enough for my old brain for now! You are right though, the Mastering Logic has definitely helped me get out of my Cubase ways. Cheers.
