Lesson 8. Recording > Recording MIDI

Recording MIDI

In the last lesson you added a drum loop using the Hyper Editor's GM Drum Kit hyper set. That's a great way to program beats, but there's nothing quite as intuitive as playing a beat out and recording it. In the following steps you will redo the beat by playing your MIDI keyboard and recording the MIDI events created by pressing keys.

In the exercise above, you got a quick introduction to the Record button. Just as on an analogue tape deck, the Record button is the Transport button with a circle on it. Press the button, and you're recording! When it comes to recording MIDI, Logic always records to the track currently selected in the Arrange window. In fact, as you select MIDI or Audio Instrument tracks in the Arrangewindow, they automatically become record-enabled and ready to accept MIDI input (you've already used this feature several times while playing Logic's internal Audio Instruments). All that's left is to actually record. Let's give it a shot now.
