Question about Logic and Abelton
My current live electronica band rehearse once a week and we need to keep recording our
jams now as an ongoing process as a large part of our performance is improvised. What I've
been doing so far is turning up at the rehearsal rooms with our various recorded backing
tracks, samples and parts on audio and midi channels in a project in Logic and then we mic
up the drums, guitar, vocals and route the stereo out from my soundcard into a Mackie
mixing desk, adjust the levels for each and then take a stereo tape output or sub-out and
route the master Mackie signal BACK into my laptop soundcard stereo input, create a stereo
track in the same track in Logic (below all of my various midi and audio tracks) and hit
record...then I can jump between midi tracks for playing parts and trigger audio backing
tracks etc...whilst the whole three hour session is being recorded onto the stereo audio track
for us to listen back to afterwards.
However, recently I've bought a Korg Nano Controller and a M Audio Radium 49 with a copy
of Abelton Live 8 and have now arranged our live set as clips and lots of fx mappings and
vsti's as a project file Abelton.
What I want to do is the same as before but use Abelton Live to trigger all my clips and
record the rest of the band as a stereo channel from the Mackie into my laptop in the same
way as I did with Logic before but when I boot up Logic, create an audio track and minimise
it, nothing gets recorded in.
Is there any way I can still record into Logic (or even Abelton) or do I need to get another
laptop with Logic or recorder and record from the Mackie straight into that.
I understand that when you boot up Live, load the project and then boot up Logic, it goes into
Rewire Mode but I'm not sure it's configured properly. In the stereo audio track in Logic, I
select the correct input but it's just not having any of it.
Cheers dudes and dudettes

File?: No file
why cant you just record to an ableton audio track the same as you did in logic?
I had an idea for a script once. It's basically Jaws except when the guys in the boat are going after Jaws, they look around and there's an even bigger Jaws. The guys have to team up with Jaws to get Bigger Jaws.... I call it... Big Jaws!!!
