Select Soloed Tracks  – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Select Soloed Tracks


Selects all tracks that are currently soloed. This can be very useful. At the minimum a quick way to be able to pan or level control the current group of playing tracks. Only available in the Edit>Select Tracks> menu, or by command. The command only works when the Arrange window is the current focus.

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.

Set Marquee Tool ⌥2⃣ – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Set Marquee Tool   ⌥2⃣

A predefined way to turn on the Marquee tool. I currently have Logic set to switch to the Marquee tool when the cursor is in the lower half of a track (upper half for Fade tool).

I should remember to switch the command-tool to something other than Marquee.

Previously posted here.

The Marquee Tool – Logic Pro X – learning at the elbow of the internet

I keep trying to use the marquee tool to make things easier. I keep forgetting.

 

 Select parts of regions in the Tracks area – Logic Pro X

Only the part of the region inside the marquee is selected, letting you select inside, or across portions of, regions. You can perform most edits, such as moving, cutting, copying, and deleting, in the selected area. After editing, the selected area becomes a new, separate region. The marquee selection uses the current Tracks area Snap value.

If you play a project after making a marquee selection, playback starts at the left edge of the selection, and ends at the right edge. If you create a marquee selection while the project is playing, playback continues past the end of the selection.

If you start recording after making a marquee selection, Autopunch mode is activated, and the marquee selection is replaced by the punch locators. All tracks within the marquee selection are record-enabled, and all other tracks are record-disabled.

Apply Transform User Preset 3 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  3 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.

Edit Project Alternatives – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Edit Project Alternatives

Rename or delete alternatives. I find alternatives to be very useful dealing with sets of recorded music. Each song in a set gets it’s own alternative.

Use project alternatives and backups – Logic Pro X

 

When Show Advanced Tools is selected in the Advanced preferences pane, you can create alternative versions of a project, each with a unique name and different settings. Project alternatives let you save “snapshots” of a project in different states, including different cuts or mixes. They’re saved as part of the project and share the same assets. Alternatives for the current project appear in the File > Project Alternatives submenu.

Backups let you go back to earlier saved versions of a project. Each time you save a project using the File > Save menu item (or pressing Command-S), a version of the current project alternative is saved (up to ten backups per alternative). In the Project > Revert to submenu, backups for the current alternative are listed in descending order from newest to oldest.

Rest ˽ – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Rest    ˽

It’s a great idea to rest. When using the Step Input keyboard you insert a rest by pressing the space bar. The rest will be chosen by the note value selected in the upper part of the keyboard.

Use step input recording techniques – Logic Pro X

Step input allows you to insert MIDI notes when you’re not recording in real time. You can use step input to create note runs that may be too fast for you to play or to replicate sheet music that’s too difficult for you to play.

  Load Audio Sample…    ⌃F

EXS24 software sampler. The keystone of software instruments in Logic Pro X.

This is a tool that I use all the time, the software instruments, but probably will never dive into to create my own instrument. Complex and challenging. I assume that the limited user interfaces on early samplers made it “easier” to work with once having learned the basics. Modern sampler instruments are far more complex.

 

EXS24 mkII Instrument Editor overview – Logic Pro X

The Instrument Editor is used to create and edit sampler instruments. A sampler instrument consists of zones and groups:

Create Flex Marker At Previous Transient – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Create Flex Marker At Previous Transient

I think I would use the methods described in the user guide (see below) to create the three Flex Markers with a simple click as opposed to only creating one of them. Difficult to say, very easy to use and manipulate.

Time stretch using flex markers – Logic Pro X

 

In the Tracks area, you edit the timing of audio material using flex markers. After adding flex markers to an audio region, you use them to time stretch—compress or expand—the audio material. The boundaries within which this is done are determined by the preceding and following flex markers, or the region start and end positions if there are no preceding and following flex markers.

Create 1 Track Automation Point at Region Borders ⌃⇧⌘1 – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Create 1 Track Automation Point at Region Borders  ⌃⇧⌘1

Creates automation points that can be used to change the automation of the entire region. Create the points, grab the “curve” and move it.

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.

Autoscroll to Selection – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Autoscroll to Selection

The normal behavior of the Mixer window is to scroll to reveal the channel strip of a track that is selected in the Arrange window. If you want the mixer to remain where it is, possibly focused on AUX strips, when you select a track in the Arrange window you need to turn off Autoscroll to Selection.

The command is not mapped to any key. The command is located in the View menu Mixer windows. The command is a “toggle”. Mapping a key command allows you to toggle Autoscroll on and off.

What’s new in Logic Pro 10.4 – Logic Pro X

The responsiveness and performance of the Mixer is improved, particularly for projects with high channel strip counts. In addition, the Mixer provides several new capabilities, including creating a default channel strip configuration, disabling autoscrolling to the selected channel strip, and highlighting channel strips corresponding to a send or routing destination. In addition, selecting multiple channel strips also selects the tracks assigned to them.

  Go to Marker Number 14

Another of the numbered marker commands. Not happening for me. I name my markers or use the forward/backward marker commands and buttons on the X-Touch.

Markers overview – Logic Pro X

There are several ways to create and edit markers in Logic Pro. You can view and edit markers in the following work areas:

 

 Navigate using markers – Logic Pro X

You can navigate through your project using markers. This is useful when you want to quickly jump to, and edit, regions or events at a specific position in your project, for example.

Show Detailed Help ⌘/ – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Show Detailed Help    ⌘/

This is the fastest way to find out how something works. Open the Key Commands Edit window (⌥K), type in a bit of the command name so it appears in the list. Move the cursor over the command and type ⌘/ – if there is help available it will open in the help window.

Remarkably useful.

How to get help – Logic Pro X

 

Logic Pro provides several ways for you to get answers to questions, learn about controls and functions while you’re working, and view detailed information about all aspects of the app. You can also view information directly in the app using the Quick Help feature.
