I thought I had found the solution yesterday when I discovered the 'Master fader' in the Channel strip section, but IUquickly realised that although this fader will keep the overall mix levels in trim, I cannot plug anything into this fader if I needed say a tape saturation plug in over the whole mix !
Previously I have outputted each Logic channel to outboard converters, like the MOTU 24 I/O via FireWire, and then on to my outboard mixer. This of course didn't need a Stereo Mix Out Fader within Logic, so I have never needed to find one.
Now I am mixing 'in the box' so to speak, andI need to find out how to add a 'Stereo Ou't fader to any song that I had previously recorded without one.
The loss of the Solo facility has happened on my recently recorded songs in the last 2 weeks, but when I boot up an old song, recorded say from 3/4 years ago, the Solo button will still not work, in the Arrange Page, or the Mixer and Click and Ports pages?
That's why I'm wondering if recent updates in Logic Pro 9 ( I'm still on Snow Leopard by the way ) have changed something in my set-up ?
