    Basically, I want a few seconds of space in front of my first bar.... I've always just started my instruments at bar 2, but I 'm wondering if there's a way to have the "1" marker start at that spot

    This is a simple option in project settings in Cubase and Reaper. I assume it can be done in Logic, too.

    Well there is, but I wouldn't recommend it. The white square right next to the bar 1 marker can be dragged backward to start the song at a negative bar number. It gets kind of buggy though. For example, the code for copying and pasting automation relies on the song starting at bar 1 and it can get a bit weird if the song starts elsewhere. I'd recommend just starting at bar 2, or better yet, bar 5 (because then you skip a whole measure and your measure markers will still line up).

  3. What's with the pitch shift in the "Hammond" synth patches?
