Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from question about autoloading "SC"—— In video #2... there is a click being used as a side chain for KICK, CLAP and 1&3 notes/hits. These measures are looped at 130bpm... HOWEVER... what happens when you auto load these "SC"s and your bpm is slower or faster? The loops at 120bmmp don't line up. Would appreciate a reply. Cheers for a great series!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Excellent! Just finished watching this series. Christopher is a great instructor who explains things clearly. His topics are always intriguing and he presents unconventional but interesting ways of doing things in Logic. I especially liked when he talked about pitching the vocals up by a few cents and how he got that from his guitar playing background. Keep them coming Chris!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Title is spot on I looked into this for gain staging and auto loads. I am not an EDM artist but the info here helped me with my recording to deal with hot tracks from synths/drums for providing headroom and to automate processes to be more efficient with time management. I really liked his clear fast paced instruction.
