Step 1: Start recording a few takes on the same track. Logic is very intuitive where you can record over the previous take without losing or destroying the takes before. A good way to do this is to turn on loop recording where you can record a few takes at once.
Step 2: Once you have the tracks recorded, double click on the region to show all takes. You may click once on the individual tracks to listen to them to pick the best parts from the different takes. Placing the cursor over the tracks will bring up the ‘comp tool’ that looks like a vertical bar. Click and drag over parts from the different takes that you want to use for your final track. The blue regions are the ones assimilating the top track and the white regions are the unused regions.
Step 3: Once you are satisfied with the final track from the different takes, you can either choose to create a new audio file of the track or just remove the unwanted region. By clicking the arrow on the top right hand corner of the top track (final track), a drop down menu will appear where you will see ‘flatten’ or ‘flatten and merge’. ‘Flatten’ is to just to get rid of the unwanted regions but ‘flatten and merge’ will create a new audio file (it works like ‘glue’ )
There you have your perfect take!
