Logic 9 Bleeding

    I'm having a strange problem that is occuring only now after months of trouble free work.

    I have one track which is panned all the way to the right, and is totally inaudible on the left when monitoring in an Arrange window.

    When I bounce the track into my I-Tunes I'm now hearing it on both sides. It's much softer on the left, but it needs to be silent.

    Why it's started doing this now I don't know.

    I have closed the program, restarted my computer, and tried creating new projects/arrange windows.

    Please help...thanks so much!

    Hi there, have you done this particular thing successfully before with your current setup?

    Yes I have been doing this for over a year with many projects.

    Is it a stereo track?

    All I can think of is something on your output strip, but if it sounds right in logic... Might be worth trying an online (real time) bounce?

    Noteman, make sure all of your iTunes prefs that mess with the sound are disabled.

    Hello everyone

    Thank you all for your speedy replies of almost two months ago.

    I only received an email notification for the very first reply from mt100UK and figured that was the end of that.

    And I have been letting a coworker with his own computer deal with making the tracks that I really should be doing myself on my Mac and Logic.

    I haven't fixed this vexing issue yet.

    I tried all of your suggestions and a whole bunch of other things myself to try and fix this but no luck yet.

    My original post stated that the panning sounded fine in Logic but didn't some out in I-Tunes..

    Now it's doing the same thing in Logic, so I guess I need to test my hardware connections and make sure they aren't giving me problems.

    Fun stuff!

    Ok so I've tested my hardware, all good there.

    I've gone into several different projects to listen to different parts individually, soloing bunch of different parts and have discovered that I can't get 100% panning.

    If I pan all the way, I still get a whisper in the other side, where I need SILENCE. This is so the house won't hear my count-ins/click tracks etc.

    Nonetheless, when I bounce a project and listen in I-Tunes or VLC player (just to try something else) the amount of undesired signal on the left side is much greater than the whisper I just mentioned in my last reply.

    Yes it is a stereo track.

    Use the Direction Mixer to pan a stereo track, found under Imaging in the Logic plugs.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I tried messing around with it and the result seems the same, I can't get 100% panning, I still hear a small amount of the track on the side where I'm trying to get nothing.

    Just to rule something out, could this be analog crosstalk?

    Thanks again guys

    Maybe something was screwy on me before, but it now seems the crazy problem I had doesn't exist.

    Analog cross talk seems the most likely case. I didn't bother hooking up my studio monitor speakers to try things out. Ya, duh...

    Found the silence on the left channel I was looking for.

    For what it's worth: I got the analog cross talk with my Audio-technica M50's and with my custom made in-ear monitor buds, when I plugged them into the headphone jack in back of my I-Mac and with my Apogee One interface.

    This all feels pretty amateur, I imagine there's a little snicker going on, all good.

    But I'll do up a load of tracks and play them at the gig before I lock this case closed I guess.
