I recorded a thing on the drums!! 😁 (The backing track isn't mine, full credit to Jack Curtis of https://drumdrumdrum.org; all his stuff is up on Bandcamp, highly recommended: https://drumlessbackingtracks.bandcamp.com).
I screwed up slightly in a couple of places because I'm used to watching the iPad in front of me and knowing when time changes are coming from there but I kept having to look over at the computer to my left instead. I've subsequently realised that I can use the iPad as an extended monitor for the laptop and can move the track time display over to that.
I also discovered the fun* of getting audio and video synced up, and how despite the fact that the iPhone says it's shooting video at 60 frames per second, it's ACTUALLY 59.94 and so by the end of the song the audio I recorded directly in Logic Pro had drifted significantly from the video. Thankfully iMovie has a "Speed Editor" where you can get it all lined back up again.
But eeeee! Absolutely stoked with this!
Yessss, got the Bridge4 configured to control Logic Pro now! So I can start and stop recording, play and pause the existing audio, and switch between and trigger live loops scenes all right from the pedalboard without needing to take my hands off the guitar. 😎
I am having ENTIRELY too much fun in Logic Pro right now. I've taken the song I recorded back in May (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/2029), recorded a bass track with my guitar amp/load box/audio interface setup, and have turned it into this electronic-sounding thing. (Once I'm happy with it, I'll upload it.)
Also, man, listening to this back again I can really hear that I sucked at keeping the guitar in time with the drums. 😛
I ordered a laptop stand so I could have my laptop hooked up to my drums in a more useful position, it arrived today and fits perfectly! So much better than having it dodgily perched on the luggage to the left there. 😛
I also discovered that Logic Pro has a thing where it can pick up the tempo of what you're playing and it lets you adjust it after the fact! I'm a bit shit at keeping time, but I recorded a section by trying to keep a count in my head ("ONE and TWO and THREE and FOUR and") and I actually ended up surprisingly close to 120bpm the whole time.
