Logic 9 Drag & Drop Regions Problem

    Running LE9. I have two projects open. I want to drag and drop a region from project A’s arrange area into an open track on Project B’s arrange area. Project B already contains numerous tracks occupied by regions. Problem: when I drag the region over from A to the open track on B, the region will often end up in one of B’s occupied tracks, and not the open one I desire. Sometimes the dragged region will cover an existing region on B. I’ve tried hiding all occupied B tracks and muting them, too, but it doesn’t make any difference. BTW same problem with copy and paste. The A regions are vocals and sound effects, no MIDI or loops. Any ideas on how to make a clean export/import?

    Try copy / paste.

    This has always been a bit hit and miss. I just dump it in and then manually adjust to the desired location.

    Thanks Guys,
    As I mentioned, copy and paste yields the same result. I guess I'm stuck with manually adjusting the regions. This will be a bitch because of the large number of tracks in Project B. Oh well. One alternative is to bounce the tracks on Project A into an mp3 and drag that into B, however, mp3's don't have the quality of the original recording. Requires follow up EQing which I'm not that good at.

    Why not use the track import feature?

    I agree - try Track Import (from the File Browser pane, or the Import command. Gives you lot's of options, very intuitive.
