Save as Template… Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX

I use this command a fair bit. I tweak my template when I learn new methods or choose a new primary tool. No need to map it to a keyboard command, but it’s good to know where it is in the File menu.

My template editing consists of creating a new project from the template, making changes, then doing a save as template using the original name (click on the template file name in the mini-Finder to get it filled in) and over-writing it.

Multiple busses. Multiple sends for monitor mixes.

For today’s work I reinforced my understanding of sends, faders, panning, and such for Logic.

Modified the multi-bus template to add HP1 and HP2 to bus labels for in-ear/monitor mixing.

I am reminded that Outputs (sends) are assigned to busses. Logic creates AUX channels (with strips) as destination for the busses. Keeping this distinction in mind helps understanding the audio path.

Vocal contrast: give the vocals a 1⁄4 note or an 1/8 note delay. When the chorus hits, change it to a 1⁄2 note delay and turn up the feedback a little bit. The vocal will have more depth in the chorus. Back off the high end with an EQ to create depth without the obvious echos.

This works

These are handy tips. I like them. I keep them in a collection on the twitter…
