Logic 9 groups in Logic 9

    or groups in Logic at all.

    I'm ProTools certified, working on learning Logic Pro and get certified there, too. I've used ProTools nearly exclusively in my short audio career, and am used to some of the workflows in PT. As I'm learning, I'm trying to find ways to do what I am used to in PT.

    Grouping in PT rocks in that you can have subgroups, and tracks can be members of multiple groups. For example, I could turn on Group A which includes the Lead Vocal and drums--solo, mute, select regions, hide, and all kinds of other stuff--then I could turn on Group B which might be the Lead Vocal and guitars and manipulate those tracks.

    There doesn't seem to be any way to do this in Logic. I'm hoping there is.

    On a side note, does this forum have groups? And is there a Logic for ProTools switchers group?

    Thanks!

    Click with Shift and Control in the Group Display to assign a channel strip to more than one group.

    I think you just need to use shift to do this (page 764 in the manual) but will check it out later as that's a great feature. :) I found a few other cool group options in the manual too that are worth checking out such as just option clicking in the little group box in the mixer to instantly assign that track to the last created group. Good stuff.

    You're right! This is also more consistent with how 'adding something to something' usually works in OS X.

    Awesome! I knew there had to be a way. I suppose I could've just asked "how do you add a track to multiple groups?" in my original post. *sigh*

    Thanks y'all. I like to think of myself as resourceful, and I used the Peachpit book, google, this forum, logic help menu, but didn't look in the manual! so many resources, so little brain power. Thanks guys! I'll try to keep the ignorant questions to a minimum!

    Great feature but there's a graphical bug.

    If a track is a member of multiple groups (say 1 and 2) this will be presented as "1+2" in the tiny group display of the track.

    If I deactivate group 1 all tracks that are only a member of group 1 will get their "1" greyed out which is correct. But the "1" in "1+2" will not be greyed out on tracks that are members of both 1 and 2. This will fool the user to believe group 1 is still active.

    Done.
    A bit of a pain to fill in the survey about musical interests each time. One suspects they have this feedbackpage for the purpose of collecting information about their users rather than getting bug reports.
