Re: Editing Audio In Logic ???

It's not really ' converting ' the MIDI file. It's essentially playing the MIDI file through the internal sound generator and recording the digital output back onto the USB stick.... but yes, it gets you an audio recording without needing a conventional audio interface. Does that mean if it records...

Re: Editing Audio In Logic ???

It's seems I can save the edited MIDI track in Logic as a format 1 MIDI file to a USB key, insert the key back to the P515s USB to device port, then convert the edited MIDI file to Audio inside the User memory of the P515 without the need for an audio interface external set up. In Logic Pro, select ...

Stage 3: Replay the edited MIDI data back out to the hardware piano. The MIDI is essentially replicating you, controlling the piano, but now without performance errors. Stage 4 record the audio outputs of the hardware piano back into the DAW so you have a final sound recording. Stage 3 and 4 obviou...

Re: Editing Audio In Logic ???

When you're finally ready to record the audio, just arm an audio track in the usual way, set to record from the inputs the piano's audio is coming in on. Does that mean either to disconnect the MIDI cable set up in exchange for an audio cable set up, then in Logic select bounce MIDI to audio? Or si...

Re: Editing Audio In Logic ???

If the Yamaha P515 has the ability to record MIDI, I could just connect a cable from it's USB to Host port in to the Mac, open Logic, launch a MIDI track and begin recording MIDI using the piano sound from the P515, when all editing is done, how would I then send the MIDI recording back to the P515 ...

Re: Editing Audio In Logic ???

Whilst you can record a performance on the P515 as a MIDI 'song' you'll need to transfer it over to your computer on a USB drive (page 105). You can then bring it in to your DAW, edit it and export it back to a USB drive and load it onto the P515 again. You can then play the MIDI file and record th...

Play the P515 whilst recording the MIDI output. Then edit the MIDI to correct any mistakes or things you feel could be better.* Then play back the MIDI through the P515 and record its audio output. You might need to drag the recorded audio slightly to make up for timing delays from the MIDI process...

How then is that possible? As I didn't think editing audio was as advanced as editing midi?

Re: Editing Audio In Logic ???

Use midi controller lanes (lane sets). You can 'draw' in values for midi cc parameters . I considered using compression to attenuate for the loud notes, but applying compression has a tendency to change the overall sound of the audio itself which is what I'm trying to avoid. I tried using automatio...

RichardT wrote: Thu Mar 31, 2022 11:40 pmBasically the limiter will do nothing at all to signals below -4.5dB, but the compressor will star acting below that so that the dynamics change more smoothly.

That sounds perfectly logical, I didn't consider as such, but your suggestion seems the way to go.

Just curious, but can I ask why? Is this to meet some regulation for a website?

I feel the track sits better with a slight volume reduction at the peak.

It depends how your limiter works! Which limiter are you using? But in these circumstances, I’m not sure you want a limiter, maybe a compressor would be a better bet . I considered compression but thought a Limiter would cut it straight off at -2.5dB thus reducing the peak to -4.5dB or is this a wr...
