Toggle Hide Group 22 – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Toggle Hide Group 22

Hmm. 32 groups. The keyboard commands for 1 through 9 are ⌃⇧1 to ⌃⇧9 .

The commands do what I expect. If there is a group numbered ‘n’ the command toggles the view of the tracks/channels. Hidden, but not like “Hide Track”.

Groups are “mixer groups”. The overview helps us get started. It is a good thing to read through all of the sections talking about groups.

Groups overview – Logic Pro X

The Mixer groups feature is only available when Show Advanced Tools is selected in the Advanced preferences pane.

 

 It appears that ‘Toggle Hide Group nn’ only works when the Arrange window is in front. The channel strips do toggle their visibility in all the windows.

Adjusting ‘group’ volume causes me to consider VCAs – a channel can only be controlled by one VCA, but a channel can be in multiple groups which may be able to control the volume fader.

⇧ SHIFT  –  ⌃ CONTROL  –  ⌥ OPTION  –  ⌘ COMMAND
