Recording on more than one track

Logic can record on multiple tracks simultaneously, irrespective of the type of track (audio, MIDI, or audio instrument).

To arm multiple tracks, simply SHIFT-click on their record buttons.

When you start Logic recording, it will record on all tracks at once, allowing you to capture multi-microphone sessions, multiple outputs of an external hardware device, or a MIDI and audio performance simultaneously, for example.

SHIFT-click on the record buttons, to arm multiple tracks for recording.

The configuration in your picture will not work, no audio will be recorded. You need to Shift-Click on the audio track, so both an audio track and an audio instrument track are selected.

Yes you are correct - actually for illustrative purposes I specifically did it so only one arrange track was selected rather than both, as I thought I might then get comments about "how can you select more than one track in the arrange page?" :)

Is it possible to record on multiple instrument tracks using DIFFERENT inputs at the same time? i.e. a midi drum controller playing an ultrabeat kit while a keyboard controller plays an EXS patch?

I will be covering more of this stuff in time as it's quite commonly asked.

In the meantime, check out the "MIDI Multi-track Recording" section on page 121 of the Logic Reference Manual, and specifically the "Multiplayer Recording" bit.
