Channel strip types in Logic Pro – Apple Support

Aux (Auxiliary) channel strips: Used for a variety of signal-routing purposes. Aux channel strips are used to set up send returns, where a channel strip signal is routed to an aux channel strip for effects processing. They are also used for grouping and for distributing a signal to multiple destinations via sends.

Clear Lane Set – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Clear Lane Set

Clears the current Lane Set.

Use Lane Sets in the Step Editor in Logic Pro – Apple Support

 

The Lane Set functions let you limit the Step Editor display to only the required MIDI event types. For example, imagine you have recorded a synthesizer lead MIDI region. You could create a Lane Set that contains individual lanes for each note pitch in the region. Drag each note event step vertically to adjust its level. Within the same Lane Set, you could create two more lanes to control the lead synthesizer’s filter cutoff and resonance parameters, allowing you to create or precisely edit filter changes.

Fix Displayed Note Positions and Durations – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Fix Displayed Note Positions and Durations

When MIDI regions are quantized it can have an effect on the notes as displayed in a score. The notes will be played according to the quantized rhythm, with the displayed notes representing things differently.

Swing (jazz performance style) – Wikipedia

In music, the term swing has two main uses. Colloquially, it is used to describe the propulsive quality or “feel” of a rhythm, especially when the music prompts a visceral response such as foot-tapping or head-nodding (see pulse). This sense can also be called “groove”.

 

Bret Pimentel explains things like this

Sometimes a well-meaning composer or arranger will try to approximate a jazz swing style notationally in this way:

 Logic Pro Quantize region parameter – Apple Support

You can fix the display quantization of all MIDI events in the projects using the Score Editor’s Functions > Quantization > Fix displayed Note Positions and Fix displayed Note Positions and Durations commands. These commands may be useful for exporting projects (complete with display Quantize settings) to other notation programs that don’t feature display quantization. The commands are also available from the shortcut menu when you Control-click notes in the score.

Understanding Spectrograms

Understanding Spectrograms

A spectrogram is a detailed view of audio, able to represent time, frequency, and amplitude all on one graph. A spectrogram can visually reveal broadband, electrical, or intermittent noise in audio, and can allow you to easily isolate those audio problems by sight. Because of its profound level of detail, a spectrogram is particularly useful in post production—so it’s not surprising that you’ll find one in tools like RX 8
 and
Insight 2
.

It is good to know how the spectrograms work. The overlay of the waveform is an added bonus.
