    Not sure if this is the right forum section for this thread, but it seems relavent.

    There are some great tutorials Both groove3.com/str/ and https://www.macprovideo.com/ do great work

    But there is one missing, I would love to see an ADVANCED Logic 9 environment tutorial.
    Something delving deep, deep into the chasms of the Environment window.

    Honestly, it would be allot easier for you to just ask a question here.

    As an author myself, I can assure you that both the author, who may not get much $$$ if a tutorial doesn't sell because of a lack of interest, and the publisher, who will only pay out the thousands of $$ in advances for the actual creation, that takes months most of the time, the risk is very high.

    In all my years around here yours is the first request for a more detailed "environment" tutorial, so I am guessing that it wouldn't sell very well. And I also doubt someone would want to take the time to do it. Have you checked Youtube?

    So that said, what can I/we answer for you, specifically?

    It is the right forum Jay and your question has sense. As a Logic Environment expert I can say I receive weekly personal Emails in my site from people asking the same question. I must think seriously about that and if find some time I do something. The other question is what the people want to learn about the Environment. The Environment is a huge area so it is some kind of Software in the software i.e you can develop complex midi tools to behave as midi plugins (Macros) at a high level - currently I work at such Intelligent smart complex tools. So there are thousands of topics which must be covered - more than all other Logic sections gathered.

    Anyway as was mentioned you are welcome to ask any Environment question and we will do our best to assist you.

    Hello George and Tangra, I will have to spend an hour or two and write the things I have questions for. As for the DVD I'll work on some stuff that I think would be good then hopefully other LUGers will jump on board. I'm not going to give up on this I'm passionate about this DVD tutorial and I'll never stop asking.....:D .........PLEASE......

    I studied the whole environment section in the manual and it scrambled my brain, so I found youtube very helpful, but it's like an easter hunt. Then I had other musical commitments and left a lot of my environment window studies behind, now I've forgotten SOOOO much, and there's no way I'm going to do all that again, it wasn't my forte in the first place and I'm sure I'm not alone?

    My point is This is the reason I think there should be a Environment window DVD it is for me the hardest thing to get my head around. Ok, my memory's not the best but still, throw me a bone it's complex?

    1.....I did seem to come into a little trouble tonight though. I had an audio track which was on channel 1 then I duplicated this track, later on I noticed that the track I duplicated was on the same channel as the one i duplicated it from. (I'm not sure if it's a bug but normally when I duplicate tracks logic chooses the next channel for the duplicate) So to take the duplicated track off of channel 1 the only work around I could come up with was to create another track which is on a different channel then reassign the originally duplicated track via cntl/clicking the track>Reassign to the track on a different channel then delete the latest created track and keep my newly reassigned (duplicate) track.
    I thought I would of been able to switch this duplicated tracks channel to another channel through the Environment window? But I couldn't see it there?

    Excuse the long post...

    Sorry for the shameless plug, but I have been developing some Logic Environment widgets for use in live performance. You can find tutorials and background at ewilogic.com

    I have spent the last two years studying the environment extensively to create these tools and am still learning. The manual, while helpful, is not terribly enlightening. I would love to see a repository of heavily advanced environment tutorials as it would have saved me months of research and hit-or-miss trial and error. Though I would not have learned or retained nearly as much.

    One absolute must is to check out Len Sasso's Logic Toolkit from his website swiftkick.com. An indispensable tool for learning and using the environment. I learned a huge amount by "reverse engineering" many of his objects.

    Here's to the environment! May Apple NOT kill it in Logic X!
