    Basically I'm running low in disk space, but i've got a new external hard drive, but I'm trying to clean up all my data before I start copying it across elsewhere!

    Anyway, what I've noticed is that, when I create a new project, then save it and give it a name etc, if I've been using ultrabeat, it actually copies the ultrabeat sounds into that individual project. This means its causing duplicates of the same instrument loads of times throughout all my projects.

    My question is, why does it keep duplicating all these sounds? I'm trying to keep my disk space down and this isnt helping!!!

    Another question, my mate has logic pro with all the hundreds of sounds. I only bought Logic Express, and I need more synth sounds, is there any way I can grab them off his macbook??

    Cheers

    Im pretty sure that the default option on the save as is that you save ultrabeat regions as samples. Theres a check box that allows you to say yay or nay to this. Same with the EXS samples. As to how you would rectify this on already saved projects, it would probably mean opening them again and resaving them as a new project without the option selected?

    Hope that helps.


    Oh and if any one knows how to reopen a midi region into ultrabeat and it to have the midi parameters from your region in it, id like to know that!

    Hey, cheers for that, il check that out now, it ust seemed odd that it was saving the ultrabeat samples over all the time, when i havent changed them!!

    That midi thing would be quite useful for me too!!! logic tutorials and manuals never cover what ya really want to know!

    SH, do you mean you want to use the ultrabeat as some kind of arpegiator? You could load individual synth samples into the Ultrabeat synth and trigger them with the pattern sequencer.

    To my knowledge you can't drop previously created midi patterns directly into the module itself. You can use ultrabeat to trigger off midi in the arrange area tho - just drag a midi pattern onto whatever track the ultrabeat is assigned to. Its a good way of making glitchy stuff.

    Sansie, I don't know how easy it would be to use logic 8 sounds with express as the Jam Packs etc are installed with the program. Maybe just get their disks and try! Either way tho, if you're struggling for HD space you won't want them - the full logic 8 install is around 50-60gb.

    Nope, i know how to create an arpegiator without using ultrabeat. Theres an option to create on in one of the menus, then you reassign you previously existing instrument to input into the arp and control it from there. That ultrabeat method wouldn't allow you to control the note etc surely?

    It was the second bit i was looking to do. More or less looking to tweak/completely change some drum parts that i already had without recreating them from scratch.
