Lesson 12. Setting Up the Audio Environment > Finishing the Autoload Song

Finishing the Autoload Song

You're about to save your finished Autoload Song. But first it's important to create enough Audio Objects to get you quickly making music whenever you start a new song. You'll also want to make sure there are a few tracks ready to go in the Arrange window. Let's add three more Audio Track Objects and three more Audio Instrument Objects.

Create three Audio Track Objects and three Audio Instrument Objects (you will have a total of four of each Object).

Name your Objects appropriately, and arrange them in the order shown in the figure below. Don't worry about placing them in exact positions; you'll use a special command in the next step to clean up the Audio layer and align all the Objects.

Press Cmd-A to select all the Objects on the Audio layer.

From the Environment's local menu bar, choose Options > Clean up > Align Objects.

The Audio Objects align in a straight row. Now that the Environment looks pretty and organized, let's turn our focus to the Arrange window.

Close the Environment window.

In the Arrange window, assign each of the Environment's Audio Objects to its own individual track.

If you so desire, assign icon graphics to each channel.

The Autoload Song is done!

Save your Autoload Song (Cmd-S).


If you started this lesson with 12Begin.lso instead of your own Autoload Song from Lesson 4, you'll need to use the Save As option to save your Autoload Song in the User > Library > Application Support > Logic > Song Templates folder on your hard disk. (See the end of Lesson 11 for details.)
