Default Realtime MIDI Playback from Logic to Pro Tools?

Trying to make something happen I've never done before... almost there...

I've got a fairly complex project going in Pro Tools that calls for a MIDI piano track. This MIDI track is putting a load on the CPU to the point that it's really inconsistent in its playback as I'm working with it—dodging CPU errors—so I decided to try something I've always heard of: Syncing Logic with Pro Tools and building the MIDI track there. I found a decent video tutorial that took me all the way to LP & PT being synced, using a MIDI drum track in LP, but with PT & LP playing back separately through an outboard mixer.

I need to know how to have PT import what LP is doing so I can record it on a PT track as audio. If anyone can point me to a How-To on that, it would be hugely appreciated.

Default Re: Realtime MIDI Playback from Logic to Pro Tools?

Not sure if this will help, but worth considering; You don't mention what piano VI is in play here, but I used Keyscape a lot for its Yamaha C7 grand, but it would always drag my system down to its knees. My solution is to use MiniGrand to get the midi all squared away. Then, I would load Keyscape in place of MiniGrand and commit the track.

As for syncing the 2 rigs, I think you need one to generate MTC and set the other to read and sync to MTC(Midi Time Code).
