Recording is certainly no small feat.
Wouldn’t you agree? You have to find the best spot in your room to record, set up your gear, your microphones, and then actually perform.
While I’m sure we’d both love to own the “One Take Wonder” title, it’s never that simple.
It’s much easier (and smarter) to lay down a couple of different takes. Because then you can pick your absolute favorite bits from each take to create the ultimate take.
The pros do this all the time. They scrutinize every word and phrase. Looking for that *one* bit that stands above the rest with emotion, style, and performance.
And then they comp those best bits together as if they were all recorded like a One Take Wonder.
Logic’s Take Folder system for picking and choosing your favorite takes is truly a jewel in the Logic crown. And to be honest, I’m a little embarrassed that WLPR has never covered them in the last 2 years.
So today I’d like to right this wrong and cover in great detail what makes Take Folders so special.
We’ll talk about:
- The Ease of Quick Swipe Comping
- How to Edit and Move Around Takes within a Take Folder
- How easy it is to use Flex Time inside a Take Folder
- How to preserve your carefully selected Comps so you don’t lose them when you record more Takes
- How to move Takes outside of a Take Folder
And much more. It’s a doozie of a video. But if you ever needed to know more about Take Folders, today’s post is for you.
