Waveform Vertical Zoom x 4 – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Waveform Vertical Zoom x 4

Set the visual display of the waveform to 4 times standard. You can set the waveform to a maximum of 8 times normal.

Using the ‘Waveform Vertical Zoom In/Out” commands allows for smaller adjustments. Waveforms have 16 visual levels, meaning you can increase in 15 steps.

Far too many people make determinations of how loud things are by looking at waveforms. I find it difficult to discuss levels with these people. The waveform display is an aid to finding transients and relative levels…specific levels should be determined in different ways – who knows what the scale is…
