As I am turning into a Bass export factory from Logic Pro X to feed my hungry
Beatbuddy is there any Best Working Practices (BWP) to use as a template.
Logic Pro X
1 Use the Arrangement in GLOBAL tracks to map out song sections, often 8 bar blocks:
Intro, Verse, Lift, Pre Chorus, Chorus, Bridge, Instrl, Outro
Create a a new Drummer track
Select a style of drummer e.g. Darcy for pop, Kyle for Rock
Is it better to just use one drummer for BWP ?
Set up an 8 bar loop, then in Drum Editor use the X/Y pad to get nearest grove,
Follow rhythm Check box, Check so drum follows Bass
Preview styles ,
Create a BASS midi track, select Play Midi keyboard to trigger Bass (select Picked)
Then when groove is right, record Bass part.
Create a midi drum track , select Drum Kit, So Cal
Then copy Drummer track intoMidi Drum track, converts to editable midi track
remove any drum sounds with Foot on them e.g. Hi hat Foot Closed , also any open HiHats
Add a Midi instrument track
Select Patch category: BASS
Select Patch : Picked BASS
Record Bass Part
Edit Bass midi in piano roll editor, select All notes, Quantise by default to 16ths
Bass track push up Octave or two to keep well clear of Drums
(Apply great tips Persist, Beat Buddy Form advises) for Export as Midi file
Then select both midi Drum and Bass tracks using Apple Cmd + J to join
Select this merge track (Bass has joined into Drums) and export as a midi file.
Select Songs, select a set list folder
Create a new spong
Select a drum set: currently use Rock with Bass
(for playing live want a balanced consistent sound so is it BWP to stick to
One Drum set with a Bass ?
Also how can the Bass sound be balanced up so it blends with the drums ?
4 Then import the exported Midi File.
This is an excellent Forum and is a real game changer for me for songwriting and live
performance. thanking you all in advance.
