So i was trying to figure out how to strip sound out of a movie and add your own foley or sound design within logic. I am not sure if any of you guys know how to do that i am Just trying to start learning how to do that and score for film. Oh by the way what are some good sound on the motif XS for foley or strange effect ( something that sounds like space)

What kind of movie are you working with? You ‘client’ should be able to do this for you. You are able to must the movies playing in Logic but, this particular kind of thing is better accomplished through Soundtrack Pro. Imported movies should show the audio tracks and give you the ability to record additional tracks for sound effects, etc…

As for the other question. It doesn’t take very long to audition the possible voices that would fall into the spectrum of what you are looking for. Eliminate all of the natural instruments: piano, organ, guitar, bass, brass, woodwinds, etc…

So that leaves you with, synths, pads, sound effects in voice mode. All told, there is a fraction of the XS’ voices that can apply…

i am pretty much a student trying to just learn the basics, right now I am importing a mp4 file( which works in quicktime) and trying to just mess around and figure things out, the only problem i have is that he audio is still planing with it, plus everything is so new to me that I am having a slight learning curve.

Again, Soundtrack Pro is the proper application for that if you purchased Logic Studio. Because again, the audio track is separated from the movie and affords the opportunity to multitrack record additional dialog, sound effects. etc…

In Logic however, as a work-around, you can double-click on the movie and it should open in it’s own window with a volume fader that you can mute.
