Select Highest Notes ⇧↑ – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Select Highest Notes    ⇧↑

As the command is named. Select the highest note in chords in the region. “Select Lowest Notes” is also available. Probably useful if you are trying to create separate tracks for “instruments” from a chord. I currently don’t see me using this command much.

You can watch the command in action in the Score Editor, or with the Event List open. 

Split chords in the Piano Roll Editor – Logic Pro X:

These commands can be used with regions containing chords to separate the top note of each chord (often the melody), or to separate the bottom note of each chord for a bass line. Once selected, the notes can be cut or copied, and pasted into a region on a different track.
