Lesson 5. Working with Apple Loops > Working with Tracks

Working with Tracks

The song you're working on has four empty Audio Instrument tracks, but no remaining audio tracks. The Bongo Apple Loop you just added filled the last audio track with sound, so before you can add any more Apple Loops to the song, you'll need to create a few more audio tracks. Let's get this housekeeping out of the way now so we can have fun later.

Adding Tracks

In Logic, all tracks listed in the Arrange window must be assigned to channels. Channels are simply paths that audio and MIDI use to travel into and out of Logic. For example, MIDI messages travel through MIDI channels as they leave Logic and travel to your MIDI interface and then to another MIDI device such as a hardware synthesizer or digital-effects unit. Similarly, audio tracks are a type of audio channel that can read recorded audio, like a vocal or guitar part, off the hard drive and send it to your sound card's outputs.
