Capture Last Take as Recording is one of those little features that endear Logic to its users. Ever had a moment when you're jamming along to a track, and you realize you just played a perfect take but weren't in record? Then, after pulling the SPL back, pressing Record, and playing the take again, you don't quite do as well the second time. Or the third. Or the fourth. At those times, Capture Last Take as Recording can be a song saver!
Capture Last Take as Recording automatically prints the MIDI notes you've just been playing into the selected MIDI track. Logic maintains a log of all incoming MIDI events anytime its sequencer is playing. Because Logic keeps track of your performance, it's a simple matter to turn that performance into a MIDI RegionLogic just retrieves it from memory and prints it into the Arrange window.
The Transport window's memory display shows you how much memory is available. If you jam along on your MIDI keyboard as Logic plays, you'll notice this number decreases with every key pressed, because each incoming MIDI event is stored in memory in case you need to recall it using Capture Last Take as Recording.
Capture Last Take as Recording is only available to Logic Pro users, and you must set up a key command to use it. Let's do that now, and then experiment.
Capture Last Take as Recording works only for incoming MIDI events. It does not work for incoming audio.
