Set Scissors Tool ⌥:three: – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Set Scissors Tool        ⌥:three:

I don’t edit audio very much. I typically put the playhead where I want to split a region, and use the split region command – ⌘T. It would probably be better for my workflow to start using the Marquee tool to select the area I want split apart and use the “Split Regions/Events at Locators or Marquee selection” – ⌃⌘T

If I had a touch bar that would speed things up as well.

It is important to remember to cross-fade between regions if there is sound happening. I have the fade tool and marquee tool enabled when the pointer tool is in the proper location. Makes fades easy. If I set the Scissors tool via the above command I now have to switch back to the pointer tool to do a simple fade. 

We shall see how this works out.
