I don't know the Virus, but it will probably have a clock to MIDI or External option - check your manual. You will also need to tell Logic to output MIDI clock to the desired port in it's sync pages.

You probably just mean MIDI CC messages recorded from the VIrus, not automation. Are you saying you don't know how to edit MIDI CC messages in Logic in the various ways? (hyper view, hyper draw, hyper view in the matrix editor etc etc)

Hi Desmond, I still don't know how to access the cc messgaes in hyper draw, when i record a filter sweep from the virus it records and plays back but i dont know how to edit the cc messages, i have opened up the hyper draw and there is not an option there, just the velocity, volum etc.

I have looked at the manual and still cant work it out..

Let's keep it easy for now.

In the arrange page, select the region you recorded your filter sweep in. Open the event list, and have a look what CC data is recorded. Let's say your filter sweep is on CC17.

Close the event list. Select View -> Hyperdraw -> Other and choose CC17. (Or you could choose "Autodefine" and Logic will do it for you).

Now your CC17 data will be displayed in the arrange region in a manner similar to automation, and can be edited in the same way.

There are lots of other ways to edit CC data graphically, but rather than retype the manual for all the editors, start with this first. You can also enable this view in the matrix editor (nee piano roll).

Still having problems..

I looked in the event list and there is no cc numbers.

I have these headers in the event list

Position, Status (which says sysex underneath), Channel (0) Num (32) Val (51)

Where do i find the cc Numbers?

Thanks.

So is the Virus sending sysex then, and not MIDI CC's..?

If so, that complicates the issue. See if you can set the Virus to transmit MIDI CC's from it's knobs.

You can't really graphically edit sysex data, at least not easily.
