Add or remove gaps in a Logic Pro arrangement – Apple Support

Sometimes you may want to remove an entire passage from a project—for example, you may want to remove the regions of all tracks between bars 17 and 20, so that all regions (and bar changes, tempo changes, and global score symbols) from bar 21 on are moved four bars to the left, closing the gap left by removing the four bars.

Select Next Region/Cell on Focused Track → – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Select Next Region/Cell on Focused Track   →

Selects the next region on the focused track. The concept of the focused track is important. It is quite possible to have a region selected on a track that is _not_ the focused track. Using this command can cause some confusion if you are not focused 😉

Simply, pay attention to which track is highlighted when navigating and executing commands.

The concept of _focused_ tracks is gently introduced, without a significant discussion of what that really means.

Select tracks in Logic Pro – Apple Support

You can select multiple tracks. When multiple tracks are selected, the first selected track is the focused track. Some operations, such as choosing a patch in the Library, only affect the focused track when multiple tracks are selected.

When multiple tracks are selected, the track number of the focused track also appears selected (lighter gray color) on the left edge of the track header, unlike the other selected tracks.

New Tracks for Selected Regions – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  New Tracks for Selected Regions

Creates new tracks for the selected regions. The clarification in the documentation is that a new track will be created for each _source_ track, not a new track for each region. All the regions from ‘Track A’ get moved to a new track, ‘Track A New’.

Create tracks using existing channel strips in Logic Pro – Apple Support

In Logic Pro, select the regions, then choose Track > Other > New Track For Selected Regions.

The selected regions are moved from the source track to the new track, which uses the same channel strip as the source track. In other words, only one channel strip is used for all tracks.

If you use this command with regions selected across several tracks, a new track is created for each source track. For example, if you select regions on three source tracks, three new tracks will be created for the regions.

Nudge Region/Event Position Left by Nudge Value ⌥← – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Nudge Region/Event Position Left by Nudge Value    ⌥←

Moves the starting position of the event to the left by the Nudge Value. Quick way to get things lined up to be sample/frame/beat aligned. I typically show the toolbar and set the nudge value there. Just a simple reminder of the settings.

Move regions in the Logic Pro Tracks area – Apple Support

You can nudge regions (move them in small increments) left or right using key commands. To nudge regions, you first set the nudge value, then move selected regions by this value. Alternatively, you can nudge regions by a set value.

undocumented command. There are many fine points about regions and how to work with them. They are only documented in the Logic Pro 9 manuals. Time to read Chapter 13 of the Logic Pro 9 manual.

Logic Pro 9 User Manual: Selecting Regions

This action removes all unselected areas from regions which are partly marquee-selected.

 

 Logic Pro 9 User Manual: Creating Your Arrangement

Once you have added your audio and MIDI regions to the Arrange area, you can edit and reorganize them to create an overall arrangement, or project. Most arranging and editing techniques work identically for both audio and MIDI regions. Apple Loops are also handled in a similar fashion. Where handling differs, variations are pointed out in the appropriate sections of this chapter. Note that all operations described with a pluralized heading (regions, for example), apply to one or more selected region(s).

Logic Pros: One-click Logic arrangement tricks- 9to5Mac

Today we are showcasing some over-looked Logic arrangement tricks. Prying apart a project’s regions in order to make alterations, injecting a gap for a new part or even just moving an entire section of your piece around can be tedious. However, Logic Pro X’s underrated Toolbar houses a number of functions that can get many of these tasks done with a simple selection and a one-click command.

The 2 Arrangement Rules That Every Producer And Mixer Should Know – Bobby Owsinski’s Music Production Blog

The 2 Arrangement Rules That Every Producer And Mixer Should Know – Bobby Owsinski’s Music Production Blog:

When two instruments with essentially the same bandwidth frequency (like guitars) play at the same volume at the same time, the result is a fight for attention. Think of it this way; you don’t usually hear a lead vocal and a guitar solo at the same time, do you? That’s because the human ear isn’t able to decide which to listen to, and becomes confused and fatigued as a result.

Arranging Sampled Strings – KeyboardMag

Arranging Sampled Strings – KeyboardMag:

“Use separate patches for each instrument, as this fights playing strings like an organ and forces you to think of all of the parts separately, as an arranger working with real string players would.”

I’m so glad I went to Feedly to find MusicTech feed today. In the list of similar was Keyboard Magazine. It’s not just about playing keyboards and pianos, it’s about using keyboards.

I’m always on the lookout for arranging tips for “virtual” ensembles, including how to size and “sound” the groups of instruments.

Handy hints. Examples in score!!!!
