Apply Transform User Preset 12 to selected Events – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Apply Transform User Preset 12 to selected Events

The MIDI Transform window can be opened from the Window menu, or by entering ‘⌘9’. There are 30 ‘Apply Transform User Preset … to selected Events’.

Use transform sets – Logic Pro X:

1. Choose Create New Transform Set from the Presets pop-up menu.

2. Set conditions and operations.

3. Select the “Hide unused parameters” checkbox. This helps to avoid changes to conditions and operations that aren’t required for (or may disturb) your transform set.

4. Choose New Parameter Set (Number) from the Presets pop-up menu. Enter a new name for your transform set.

This transform set now appears at the bottom of the Presets list in all MIDI Transform windows for this project. You should consider saving your user transform sets in one or more template projects. This way, they are always available to you in all future projects.

 

Tip: Renaming an existing transform set creates a new transform set that is identical to the original. The existing (source) transform set is retained.

Delete MIDI Events Outside Locators – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Delete outside Locators -> Delete MIDI Events Outside Locators

Only keep what is between the locators. My list of Logic Pro X keyboard commands was out of date.

The ‘Delete outside Locators’ command (not looking proper) is correctly named ‘Delete MIDI Events Outside Locators’ (looks proper). The command makes sense with MIDI events, not necessarily much sense with audio data.

When copying events or reducing the length of MIDI regions, events can sometimes end up outside the limits of a MIDI region. These technically still belong to the MIDI region, although they won’t be played or heard.

  Scroll to Buses

This command is available in the Mixer window/view ‘View’ menu – Scroll to – Buses

Scrolling the mixer view can be useful. Buses are not – they aren’t visible entities anymore.

Apple uses two spellings for buses – buses and busses.

  Center around Playhead ↓

Smart Tempo Editor tool. The assigned keyboard shortcut – down-arrow – only seems to work with audio regions. With MIDI regions it has no effect, in fact, moves to the next track in the Arrange window.

Smart Tempo overview – Logic Pro X

 

Smart Tempo brings powerful new tempo analysis and editing capabilities to Logic Pro. With Smart Tempo you can record a performance without the metronome and have Logic Pro adapt the project tempo to match the tempo of the recording, or keep the project tempo and flex the recording to match it. Smart Tempo also makes it easy to create remixes using audio files and MIDI regions with different tempos that all conform to the project tempo, or adapt the project tempo to the tempo of an imported audio file or MIDI region.

Set Text Tool – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Set Text Tool

Normally used in scoring mode – chord symbols, lyrics, performance notes.

The Text Tool can be used to edit the names of regions as well. Normally I rename regions using ⇧N with a region selected. I guess the Text Tool could be used if I was doing a lot of renaming.

As an exercise I will look to see if I can create Nashville Number charts in Logic.

Assign tools – Logic Pro X

 

You can assign tools to the Left-click and Command-click Tool menus. The pointer adopts the shape of the active tool, so you can quickly identify which tool is being used.

New Track Alternative ⌃⌥⌘N – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  New Track Alternative    ⌃⌥⌘N

I don’t normally create tracks that share plugins and processing but with different regions or arrangements. What I normally do is create a new track and copy regions to it so I can have different processing and plugins on the audio. If I want the audio to “voice” differently I would rather see it as a separate channel/track.

This probably comes in to play during production and arrangement as opposed to recording and mixing.

Use track alternatives – Logic Pro X

You can create and edit track alternatives and switch between them. Each alternative can contain different regions or arrangements, while sharing the same channel strip and plug-ins. Track alternatives are like “playlists” for individual tracks that can be used to try out different ideas or archive tracks at different stages of development.

  Snap Mode: Ticks

Adjusts the Snap Mode to work in ‘clock Ticks’ – 1/3840th of a second.

I am rarely working at a level in audio files where the extra fine control is necessary. There is a very useful statement about zoom modes and the 1:1 nature of cursor movement to regions.

I finally found some discussion of the “SHIFT-CONTROL” cursor and its movement.

Snap items to the grid – Logic Pro X

The Tracks area includes a grid that helps you align regions, automation points, and other items with the time divisions in the ruler. When you perform any of the following actions, the items move according to the current Snap value:

Default Interpretation – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Default Interpretation

Change the interpretation of scored notes.

Interpretation – Logic Pro X

Music notation is meant as a guide to performance, and rhythmic values are often not notated with metronomic precision. The Interpretation setting helps you produce a more readable score from real-time recordings. You should usually turn it off when adding notes via step input or with the pointer.

 

 Note attributes overview – Logic Pro X

You can control the appearance of individual notes in the Score Editor using note attributes. Note attributes include note size and position, accidentals, stems, beaming, and interpretation. Using note attributes, you can enhance the readability of the score and add performance information.

 

 Change the syncopation or interpretation of notes – Logic Pro X

By default, note syncopation and interpretation match the settings chosen in the Region inspector. You can change interpretation settings for individual notes to improve readability.

Creating Space in Your Mixes – Produce Like A Pro

One of the hallmarks of a great mix is separation between every instrument. Most mix elements have wide frequency spectrums—even a kick drum can extend well into the high mids and above. When so much information exists in every instrument, it’s easy for things to sound cluttered and messy. Creating space in your mixes is a must for a clear, defined sound!

Pop quiz: How many EQ plug-ins ship with Studio One Pro?

If you answered seven, congratulations! Then you know about the Pro EQ, the three different Fat Channel EQs, Ampire’s Graphic Equalizer, the Channel Strip, and using the Multiband Dynamics as a really hip graphic EQ. But actually, the correct answer is eight.

Toggle Next Region/Event or Move Marquee Start (or Extend Marquee Selection) to Next Transient ⇧→ – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Toggle Next Region/Event or Move Marquee Start (or Extend Marquee Selection) to Next Transient ⇧→

I haven’t figured out the “toggle” part of the command, but the extend selection makes sense.

With a note (event) selected in a MIDI region ‘⇧→’ will extend the selection to include the next event. Easy to grab a note and the next few to make adjustments.

Using ‘⇧←’ (previous) extends the selection backwards in time.

With a marquee selection the commands behave as described, moving the start of the Marquee selection or extending it.

This is very handy fine-grained control of selections. I need to remember to make sure that the Marquee Ruler is visible.

Select parts of regions in the Tracks area – Logic Pro X

 

Do one of the following:

Using the Marquee tool:

Press and hold Shift, then click in the Tracks area to change the selection in any direction.

Shift-click inside a selection to move the selection end closest to the pointer.

Option-Shift-click inside a selection to move the selection end farther from the pointer.

Using any marquee selection:

Press and hold Shift while using the Left Arrow key or Right Arrow key to move the marquee start point.

You can also use the Toggle Previous (or Next) Region/Event, or set Marquee Start to Previous (or Next) Transient key commands.

Use the Left Arrow key or Right Arrow key to change the selection end points.

You can also use the Select Previous (or Next) Region/Event, or set Marquee End to Previous (or Next) Transient key commands, depending on the type of region selected.
