    in Logic 8, when i go to the midi event window to edit midi instruments such as DFH or any of the software instruments, they do not make sound as i drag the events around. this happens most of the time i start up logic but every once and a while they do. can anyone help?

    Does it happen when you open a particular project or template? If so, check the template or project hasn't been saved with a channel solo'd on the mixer or with the volume down. Sounds stupid but it wouldn't be the first time someone's stumbled on that.

    Also check the volume / gain / drive on the instrument itself, make sure that isn't right down either. Lastly, (though this is HIGHLY improbable) check the velocity on the MIDI notes. If it's 0, you ain't gonna hear jack.

    Hth. :)

    well they do make sound during playback, just not when being clicked or dragged around in the matrix. It does sometimes but usually it doesnt.
