Punch In et Out dans Logic Pro

Made a mistake when recording? No problem. Mike Watkinson shows how the old skool method of punching in and punching out in Logic Pro can be used to make it sound perfect.  

Lors de l'enregistrement audio dans Logic Pro, vous avez plusieurs choix quand il s'agit de réparer une erreur. Une approche pourrait consister à enregistrer sur une piste toute fraîche. Deuxièmement, vous pouvez exploiter la capacité de créer des logiques prend et les stocker dans un dossier de prises lors de l'enregistrement sur le dessus d'un enregistrement existant. Mais il est une autre façon. Il fait usage d'un concept qui est né dans les jours de bande lorsque le nombre de pistes d'énormes étaient impossible et l'enregistrement d'un regard neuf d'enregistrement signifie sur un existant prendre.

Poinçonnage et le déroulement mise en œuvre de deux façons dans Pro Logic: manuellement ou automatiquement.


La méthode manuelle

Afin de rendre Pro Logic se comporter comme un magnétophone, de sorte que vous devez agir comme op bande et physiquement percer les boutons d'abandonner et de sortir sur un enregistrement (comme si vous étiez poignarder les boutons sur une plate-forme Studer) procédez comme suit:

  • Click and hold the Record button and activate Punch on the Fly (this is also available from Options > Audio)

Enabling Punch on the Fly

Activation de poinçon sur la mouche


  • Open the Key Commands window (Logic Pro > Preferences > Key Commands, or Option-K) and search for the word ‘Record’
  • Find and select ‘Record Toggle’. this is usually set to Shift-R but just in case it isn’t, set up a keyboard command in the usual way
  • Back up from your mistake, record enable the track(s) and hit the Play button
  • Hit Shift-R (or your own key command) at the appropriate moments (in and out) to punch in and out

Comportement par défaut est logique Avantages pour capturer votre punch-in comme une nouvelle prise, qui sera automatiquement sélectionner à la place de l'erreur. Les deux régions sera placé dans un dossier de prises pour plus de commodité:

Logic creates a take folder by default

Automatic for the People

Si c'est tout ce que beaucoup trop dur comme travail, vous pouvez utiliser Autopunch comme une alternative, comme suit:

  • Click the Autopunch button in the Transport

Autopunch (in red!)

Autopunch (en rouge!)


  • The Autopunch area appears in the Bar ruler. Adjust its left and right boundaries as appropriate

The Autopunch area - in red!

La zone Autopunch - en rouge!


  • Back up a little way before the Autopunch area and hit Record
  • The Record button will flash until it gets to the Autopunch area, where it will go solid red and recording will take place. With nothing else selected in the Transport, a take folder will be created as before
  • You can also quickly define an Autopunch area without enabling Autopunch in the transport by making a Marquee selection and pressing Record

Autopunch can be defined by a Marquee selection

Remplacer

The Replace button

Le bouton Remplacer


En cliquant sur le bouton Remplacer dans le transport (à côté du bouton Autopunch) s'arrête Pro Logic de créer un dossier de prises. Au lieu de cela, l'une des deux choses l'une:

  1. If you are using ‘Punch on the Fly’ the new region will replace the old one in the area where you punch in
  2. When using Autopunch, the Autopunch area is removed from the existing region as soon as you click Record in anticipation of the new material

Autopunch with Replace mode (and an active Cycle area!)

Autopunch avec le mode remplacer (et une zone active du cycle!)


Ne paniquez pas! Dans les deux cas le son est remplacé effectivement supprimé du disque (comme elle le serait si ce n'était de bande). La façon la plus simple pour restaurer une section manquante si vous gâcher consiste à utiliser Commande-Z!

Having come from the world of tape and very familiar with manually punching or dropping in I find that Logic doesn't work well with the manual method.

The source audio drops out for a brief moment at the beginning of the punch and I haven't been able to figure out why. My buffer size for recording is set to 128. If anyone has a suggestion please let me know. I prefer this method because it's much quicker than resetting markers.

Auto-punch works great (no drop out), but it takes longer to reset the punch points therefore disrupting the flow or groove the artist may be in.

Great advice. Thanks for explaining the punch in and out process so thoroughly.

davelopez,

I'm from the tape world too, and I've always enjoyed how quickly Logic responds to manual punch-in/punch-out. If it didn't work as good or better than tape I'd have shopped for another DAW long ago. Here's the recipe for success:

- make sure the Punch on the Fly feature is enabled
- make sure Replace Recording is enabled
- use **only** the Record Toggle key command to get in/out

If you're still experiencing audio dropouts then I'd have to chalk it up to the possibility that you have latency-inducing plugins somewhere in your signal chain.

Thanks, Ski.

Ingredients 1 and 2 are already part of my recipe so I think my problem may be because I haven't been using the Record Toggle key command. I'll give that a try.

If that works then you are my hero!

Thanks again.

When I use auto-punch-in and set my punch-in point at the 3rd beat of a bar it starts recording at the beginning of the bar which I don't want. Can't figure out why and what I'm doing wrong. Can you help?
Thanks.

I forgot to mention I'm working in midi not audio.
Thanks
