Add Audio File… ⌃F – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Add Audio File…    ⌃F

Add an audio file to your project. Only active when the Project Browser is visible. A much better path to adding audio files than I usually use. I had been using the Media Browser. The “Finder” interface that we get with “Add Audio File…” is much more familiar and usable.

Add and delete audio files – Logic Pro X

 

When you add an audio file to your project, Logic Pro automatically creates a region that encompasses the entire file length. You can create as many regions as you like from the same audio file. There are no length limitations to regions, as long as they don’t exceed the length of the source audio file. Creating multiple regions from the same audio file is beneficial for many tasks—using different portions of a vocal take that spans the length of the project, for example.

7 Tips for a Balanced Static Mix

7 Tips for a Balanced Static Mix

by Nick Messitte, iZotope Contributor June 17, 2019

If you’ve strolled along the forums, checked out engineering podcasts, or watched YouTube videos, you’ve probably heard of the static mix—yet the static mix is hard to put into words: every engineer seems to have their own definition.

View Mode: One Track – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  View Mode: One Track

In the Piano Roll editor.

When you have multiple regions selected you can view all of the MIDI notes for all of the regions at the same time. To look at one track choose this view mode. ‘Selected Regions’ will show all the values.

It is particularly handy to choose ‘Collapse Mode’ to show only the MIDI notes that are actually in use. The ‘Collapse Mode’ button is directly to the right of the ‘View’ drop-down menu at the top of the editor.

Production Expert | How To Move Sessions And Projects From One DAW Like Pro Tools To Another Like Studio One Or Logic Pro

With more and more people using different DAWs, the need to be able to transfer a project from one DAW to another has grown. In this article we are going to show you how to move projects from one DAW, like Pro Tools, Studio and Logic Pro, to another DAW. In this article we will also cover the pitfalls in the export and import processes and how to overcome them.

Moving projects about. Very important to know how to do this.

Toggle Channel Strip Solo S – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Toggle Channel Strip Solo  S

Toggle the solo state of the selected channel strip. Where to Solo can be confusing. Soloing a channel strip allows all tracks that are assigned to the channel strip to play. Soloing a track affects the selected track(s).

Mute and solo channel strips – Logic Pro X

You can also listen to a channel strip signal alone (solo), silencing all other channel strips. Soloing channel strips is useful when you want to work on a track or region individually; for example, when you’re editing regions on the track, re-recording a part, or adjusting volume curves.

 

Solo tracks – Logic Pro X

You can solo a track, silencing all tracks that are not also soloed. Soloing tracks is useful when you want to work on a track individually, or work on a few tracks, without hearing the other tracks in the project.

 

 Mute and solo regions in the Tracks area – Logic Pro X

You can solo multiple regions by clicking them, then click-holding one of the selected regions with the Solo tool. Playback starts from the position of the pointer until you release the mouse button.

Apply Transform User Preset 12 to selected Events – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Apply Transform User Preset 12 to selected Events

The MIDI Transform window can be opened from the Window menu, or by entering ‘⌘9’. There are 30 ‘Apply Transform User Preset … to selected Events’.

Use transform sets – Logic Pro X:

1. Choose Create New Transform Set from the Presets pop-up menu.

2. Set conditions and operations.

3. Select the “Hide unused parameters” checkbox. This helps to avoid changes to conditions and operations that aren’t required for (or may disturb) your transform set.

4. Choose New Parameter Set (Number) from the Presets pop-up menu. Enter a new name for your transform set.

This transform set now appears at the bottom of the Presets list in all MIDI Transform windows for this project. You should consider saving your user transform sets in one or more template projects. This way, they are always available to you in all future projects.

 

Tip: Renaming an existing transform set creates a new transform set that is identical to the original. The existing (source) transform set is retained.

Delete MIDI Events Outside Locators – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Delete outside Locators -> Delete MIDI Events Outside Locators

Only keep what is between the locators. My list of Logic Pro X keyboard commands was out of date.

The ‘Delete outside Locators’ command (not looking proper) is correctly named ‘Delete MIDI Events Outside Locators’ (looks proper). The command makes sense with MIDI events, not necessarily much sense with audio data.

Mute and delete regions and events – Logic Pro X

 

Inside or Outside Locators: Erases all MIDI events inside/outside the locators.

Delete notes in the Piano Roll Editor – Logic Pro X

 

 

When copying events or reducing the length of MIDI regions, events can sometimes end up outside the limits of a MIDI region. These technically still belong to the MIDI region, although they won’t be played or heard.

Now here is the best part. The reason you will need all these additional tracks and instruments. There is a new project setting on the General Page. And this one little checkbox CHANGES EVERYTHING:

Scroll to Buses – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Scroll to Buses

This command is available in the Mixer window/view ‘View’ menu – Scroll to – Buses

Scrolling the mixer view can be useful. Buses are not – they aren’t visible entities anymore.

Apple uses two spellings for buses – buses and busses.

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

  Center around Playhead ↓

Smart Tempo Editor tool. The assigned keyboard shortcut – down-arrow – only seems to work with audio regions. With MIDI regions it has no effect, in fact, moves to the next track in the Arrange window.

Smart Tempo overview – Logic Pro X

 

Smart Tempo brings powerful new tempo analysis and editing capabilities to Logic Pro. With Smart Tempo you can record a performance without the metronome and have Logic Pro adapt the project tempo to match the tempo of the recording, or keep the project tempo and flex the recording to match it. Smart Tempo also makes it easy to create remixes using audio files and MIDI regions with different tempos that all conform to the project tempo, or adapt the project tempo to the tempo of an imported audio file or MIDI region.

Set Text Tool – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Set Text Tool

Normally used in scoring mode – chord symbols, lyrics, performance notes.

The Text Tool can be used to edit the names of regions as well. Normally I rename regions using ⇧N with a region selected. I guess the Text Tool could be used if I was doing a lot of renaming.

As an exercise I will look to see if I can create Nashville Number charts in Logic.

Assign tools – Logic Pro X

 

You can assign tools to the Left-click and Command-click Tool menus. The pointer adopts the shape of the active tool, so you can quickly identify which tool is being used.
