Am I retarded?
by Chris Randall
Due to a customer question, I was poking around Logic today trying to figure out how to send MIDI to an insert. (Basically, the dude wants to use the midi-to-pitch feature of Discord 2 in Logic 7.) Back in the bad old VST days of Logic 5, in order to facilitate this sort of thing, you would put the MIDI-aware effect as the input on an instrument track, and send audio from the appropriate audio track to its sidechain input.
I was thinking that CAN'T POSSIBLY still be the case, what with the Magic Of AudioUnits and Thinking Differently and all that type of stuff. Can it? Is there still no way to send MIDI to an insert in Logic? Or am I, in actual fact, retarded?
