Delete Similar Regions/Events – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Delete Similar Regions/Events

_Similar_ needs definition.

When working with MIDI events (notes) the command will delete all of the events that have the same note value. I guess _similar_ means that velocity and duration are unimportant.

The ‘Delete but Keep Similar Regions/Events’ is a simple way to isolate all of a particular drum hit, like a kick drum. Select a note, use the command, all you have left are the kick drum hits.

I still haven’t been able to locate a definition of what _similar_ events or regions are. My best guess, formed by playing with regions and selection commands, is that all MIDI regions are similar. All audio regions are similar. MIDI regions are not similar to audio regions.
