When you’re writing and producing music in Logic, that’s a fun time, isn’t it?
Writing and recording, throwing it all up to see what sticks. It’s such a liberating experience to see your ideas come to life 🙂
But let me ask you – do your Projects ever get SO BIG that you have a hard time even knowing where you are? It’s not uncommon these days for Logic Projects to balloon well past, 20, 50, or even 100 tracks!
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could organize your tracks quickly, so instead of staring at 100+ tracks, you maybe have 10 groups of tracks?
Maybe it’s just me, but the bigger my Logic Projects get the longer it seems to take me to get them finished.
That’s why I love Track Stacks. Track Stacks are these amazing folders for organizing your Logic Projects fast. Not only that though, but Track Stacks also allow us to:
- Adjust the volume, mute or solo a whole group of tracks
- Process a whole group of tracks as a single track with the Logic Plugins
- And even play multiple software instruments as if they’re a single instrument
Can you imagine? Combining 15 kick tracks for the ultimate kick track, and then playing all 15 with a single key on your keyboard?
(I actually don’t recommend this. But still!)
If you’re not using Tracks Stacks – more power to ya. But I have to say I couldn’t imagine mixing and producing without them.
Thanks Chris for another mixing nugget of gold.
And once again, heres Alchemy, the plugin that doesnt get near the attention and props it deserves.
Heck yes, Jimmy! Alchemy is so freaking amazing. Can be a bit intimidating, hah. But it has just about every sound I could ever want.
In fact, after buying the Arturia and Native Instrument bundles, I just went right back to Alchemy and the other included instruments in Logic.

Hey Joce, thanks so much for the kind words and checking out WLPR! I really appreciate the comment. Happy to help any way I can!
Hi everyone. I’m new to Logic Pro X (only 1 week in) and am both loving and overwhelmed at all of the possibilities. One thing I don’t understand about the track stacking: When I open a guitar track and choose an amp/tone, it seems that the stacks are automatically created. If I cut and paste part of a track, it pastes that piece on one of the stacked tracks below, as opposed to where I want it on the original track. I’m sure I’m missing something but don’t really understand the stacking yet. And insight based on what I’ve described? Thanks!
