I'm new to the Logic express interface (and hoping this is my final transition between programs - Adobe Audition, Acid, Sonar, Garageband - too much! The learning curve is getting to be impossible!). The program recognizes my audio interface, and I have no problem recording or hearing playback of recorded tracks. The way that Logic deals with MIDI, on the other hand, is totally beyond me. When I play my keyboard, Logic indicates that there is input, but I cannot hear the input. Similarly (and to some extent, I assume these two issues are probably be connected), I have no idea how to access the settings for software instruments. How can I choose a different instrument than the preloaded one of the track? How can I modify the instrument? How can I add effects? On the normal audio tracks, the I/O box and effects boxes are all present on the strip on the left side: but on the MIDI tracks, all that it offers is (I assume, because I can't hear what changing these parameters does) three wheels of reverb, chorus, and some sort of modulation. I similarly have no control over the I/O stuff. I know that is a lot of questions, but hopefully there is a simple answer to my question! Thanks.
