Anyone knows a trick or a workaround to output Flex Time slices
to individual sliced audio files in Logic Studio 9 ,
so that it would b possible to load them into MPC?

is it possible at all ... ?

The MPC is a sampler.

Don't ever forget what that means.

Managed to configure Kontakt 4 as Sound module with MPC3000
but cannot figure out how to make Logic Studio 9 to act as a sound module

using Kontakt 4 VST or Logic instruments....

i know it involves lots of messing with the Invironment in Logic but i still can't figure it out :(

anyone could share Logic 9 setup or template ?

Here is a tutorial I posted some time ago about using Logic Pro 8 as a sound module.

It does not involve messing with the environment at all and is pretty simple to setup providing you possess basic knowledge of the MPC and Logic. I see no reason why it shouldn't work with Logic 9, but I haven't tried it.

Answers to many of your questions will be in that thread, if you still have any post them there.

Not sure if its been mentioned here in this thread but I use these MPC 60 groove templates for timing in Logic. it swings nice and mpc like without much hassling around with settings in logic.

if you cant find them in the link below google em. there out there.

(delete if not appropriate for this thread.. just thought id put it under 'logic')

i have 'inherited' an imac g5 (the first version, without webcam, 20"), right now, its running panther. i want to run logic 8 on it, so i need tiger or leopard.
which of those would you recommend? id guess tiger to be lighter, and ive read some forums that say early versions of leopard gave problems (cpu overloading and such).. however, i already have a leopard disc lying around here somewhere... im not done reading up about it yet, but i thought id ask anyway :)

EDIT: my plan for now: install leopard, see how that goes..

Find the tempo of the song the accapella came from to give you a base tempo, it will fluctuate throughout a track.

Im sure Logic has tools for that, but then you do have ears right?

Dont forget the MPC's TAP TEMPO function.

I just made the jump to logic as well. Super dope all I can say is make a beat and whatever you need done just look it up and then just do it in logic. Otherwise you will spend time reading books and not making music. Apple **** on there competition...

Count the number of beats in 15 seconds and multiply that figure by 4.
