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

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

  Scissors Tool    I

I usually split regions by positioning the playhead at the start or end of the segment and using the ‘Split Regions/Events at Playhead ⌘T’. That’s a bit fiddly. I am learning to use the much? easier ‘Split Regions/Events at Locators or Marquee Selection ⌃⌘T’.  It’s pretty quick to zoom out and use the Marquee tool to select the areas of interest.

I suspect that if I spent more time making beats and loops that I would become a real fan of the Scissors tool.

The ‘actual’ key command is T I – T to open the Tool menu, I to choose Scissors.
