Print ⌘P – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Print    ⌘P

A most fundamental command across all applications. Other than a score I am not sure what I would print, or where the print command might be active…Score Editor only.

Nudge Region/Event Position Left by Bar – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Nudge Region/Event Position Left by Bar

Moving regions based on position (bars, beats) is very handy. Cause the selected region(s) to be moved to the left by one bar. There is a “fence” at bar 1 – no nudging left before this point in the project.

Move regions in the Tracks area – Logic Pro X

You can also nudge regions (move them in small increments) left or right using key commands. To nudge regions, you first set the nudge value, then move selected regions by this value. Alternatively, you can nudge regions by a set value.

  Show/Hide Staff Style Window    ⌃⌥⇧S

As written. Working with scores is “fussy” work. Things need to look just right. Quick switch to get the tools in front for a moment.

The state of the Staff Style window is saved in screenset data. There appears to be a “refresh bug” when switching screensets having the style window open. The outline of the window appears, but it is not filled in

Staff Style window – Logic Pro X

You view and edit staff style parameters in the Staff Style window. The upper part of the window shows a list of available staff styles, with a visual representation of the selected staff style. The lower part shows the staffs that are used for the selected staff style, with parameters for each staff. The voices used for each staff are listed to the right.

Delete Duplicated MIDI Events ⌥D – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Delete Duplicated MIDI Events    ⌥D

The definition of “Duplicated” is important to know. It is in the documentation. Essentially a duplicate MIDI event as defined by position, channel, and number, the value of the event is ignored. Works on the selected region.

Always good to know what will really happen when you invoke the command.

Delete notes in the Piano Roll Editor – Logic Pro X

Any events occurring twice or more at the same position (and pitch) are deleted, allowing one to remain. This is true regardless of whether the duplicates have different velocity, aftertouch, or controller values. Events on different MIDI channels are not considered duplicates.

Attach Symbol: Accent – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Attach Symbol: Accent

Add an accent mark to a note (or rest?) in a score. There are fine controls for what an accent does when played (increased MIDI velocity)

Add accents and other symbols to notes – Logic Pro X

The Part box includes symbols such as accents, fermatas, phrasing marks, bow markings, and others that apply to a single note, over which the symbol appears. (Trills are in a separate section).

 

 MIDI Meaning settings – Logic Pro X

These settings determine if, and to what extent, the insertion of the listed symbols affects the MIDI playback of notes (that these symbols are attached to).

Move All Track Automation to Region ⌃⇧⌘↓ – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Move All Track Automation to Region    ⌃⇧⌘↓

I don’t see automation move from track to region when I use this command. I am not sure if the automation is moved (copied to region, removed from track) or simply copied. Needs investigation.

Hmm. The command is now ‘Convert All Track Automation to Region’ located in the ‘Mix’ menu item.

Does not do what is expected…here is a tutorial from Logic Pro 9…music.tutsplus.com – Toby Pitman

Looping Track Automation in Logic Pro

In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to loop Track Automation in Logic Pro without having to physically copy it. This technique can be a real time saver as re-editing your copied Automation data for a loop means you have to re-copy the parts again! Not any more folks!!!

 

 

Region-based vs. track-based automation – Logic Pro X

Logic Pro offers two types of automation: track-based automation, and region-based automation. Track-based automation can be applied to the entire track, from the beginning to the end of your project. Region-based automation only applies to the specific region the automation parameters are connected to. With track-based automation, if you re-record, move or copy regions (either to another point on the same track, or to another track) the automation data remains tied to the initial point on the track in which it was created. With region-based automation, if you re-record the region, the automation is lost; if you move or copy the region (either to another point on the same track, or to another track) the automation remains with the region. Region-based automation is particularly useful when you are automating instrument parameters.

Attach Symbol: Flageolet – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Attach Symbol: Flageolet

Small circle (un-filled) above a note in a score. I am not at all familiar with this notation. 

Mathematical models of flageolet harmonics on stringed instruments – ScienceDirect

Flageolet is a common technique to elicit harmonics on stringed instruments like guitars, pianos, and the violin family: the bowed or plucked string is subdivided by a slight touch of the finger. The paper discusses appropriate linear wave equations which model the flageolet phenomenon. The standard second order wave equation fails, because the resulting Dirichlet boundary condition at the finger uncouples the two parts of the string and produces tones different from the flageolet. We include and discuss fourth order corrections, due to string stiffness, as a possible source for the flageolet phenomenon.

Go to Marker Number 4 – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Go to Marker Number 4

I suspect that some people will use markers and know which one they want by ordinal position.

I don’t see the value of it. Good to know that I can.

Markers overview – Logic Pro X

When Show Advanced Tools is selected in the Advanced preferences pane, you can use markers to tag different parts of a project, and quickly select the parts for playback, arranging, and editing. Markers can help you organize your project, and also act as storage areas for locator positions.

Scissors Tool I – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Scissors Tool    I

The keyboard command ‘I’ is used when the Tool menu is visible. To switch to the Scissors Tool you would type ‘TI’. There is a command ‘Set Scissors Tool’ that will switch the left-click tool. It is available if you have a Touch Bar.

Split regions with the click of a mouse.

Common tools – Logic Pro X

Use the Scissors tool to split regions and events, allowing individual sections to be copied, moved, or deleted.

Copy Selected Regions to Focused Track – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Copy Selected Regions to Focused Track

Can’t seem to locate any particular documentation. Experimentation says I should select a track to establish focus then select regions (shift-click), the Copy Selected Regions to Focused Track.

I’m not really sure of how this fits into a workflow.

Catch Playhead Position ` – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Catch Playhead Position    `

That’s not a speck of dust on the screen – it’s the backquote – on the tilde key.

Toggles the “Catch Playhead” button and stops scrolling or catches up depending on the state.

If regions are scrolling along with the playhead during playback you can stop the scrolling, perform some task, and then catch back up.

I need to learn more about how the playhead works in the windows other than Arrange.

Catch preferences – Logic Pro X

 

Control how windows change as the playhead moves – Logic Pro X

You can control how windows update to reflect changes to the playhead position using Catch modes. When you work in Catch mode, the visible section of a window follows the playhead during playback or recording.
