Toggle Hide Group 63 – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Toggle Hide Group 63

Change the hide state of group 63. There is no group 63. The maximum group is 32. Maybe in a future release.

Still keeping groups in mind. Possibly use groups during mix and routing setup, then disabling during mixing.

Possibly a combination of a group for every summing stack?

Overview of groups in Logic Pro – Apple Support

You can also automate a group. This lets you easily set the change for parameters of a group of channel strips over the course of a project. For example, you may wish to group all of your guitar channel strips together and have all of their relative volumes change at the same time throughout your project. For more information on automation, see Overview of automation in Logic Pro.

 

Toggle Hide Group 39 – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Toggle Hide Group 39

Toggle between showing and hiding channels in group 39. This command is defined, but does not exist. There are currently only 32 groups possible (Logic Pro 10.6.1)

Overview of groups in Logic Pro – Apple Support

Prior to mixing, you may find it useful to define some logical channel strip groups. You could, for example, group all drum channel strips under one drum group. This would allow you to control the group meters (volume, pan, mute, solo, sends, and so on) using a single control, while still maintaining the relative parameter values of each channel strip.

 

Toggle Hide Group 53 – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Toggle Hide Group 53

Hide/un-hide group 53. This command is bogus. There are only 32 groups possible. Maybe someday…but who can remember 53 different groups?

Always a good time to consider the utility of groups and how workflows can be streamlined (or complicated.)

Select Project 18 – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Select Project 18

Nope – I won’t have 18 projects open. Common wisdom is that having more than one project open at a time can lead to project corruption.

This could be a holdover from the early versions of Logic where projects were called “songs”, and people using Logic for playback in peformances would have many songs open, strictly for playback.

The current world has MainStage for playback purposes. A far better tool for backing tracks or, possibly, programmatic audio.

There is no documentation in user manuals for Logic 7, 8, 9, or 10.

Toggle Hide Group 55 – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Toggle Hide Group 55

There are currently only 32 groups available. Maybe in the future?

Group editing in Logic Pro – Apple Support

Group editing allows you to perform many editing, arrangement and timing operations on all group member tracks simultaneously. For example, you can combine the comping feature with group editing so that every comp uses the same takes. You can move, resize, and arrange regions for all group member tracks together. You can also adjust the timing of the group, ensuring the group remains in time.

 Should learn something about Groups each time I enter one of the bogon commands…

Select Members of Group 39 – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Select Members of Group 39

Select all channels that are members of group 39. This is not possible. There are only 32 groups.

Toggle Hide Group 48 – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Toggle Hide Group 48

Toggle the visibility of channels in group 48. There are only 32 groups available at this time.

Overview of groups in Logic Pro – Apple Support

You can have a maximum of 32 groups, and a channel strip can be a member of multiple groups.

 

Toggle Hide Group 43 – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Toggle Hide Group 43

Another of the possibly misleading commands about groups. There are 32 groups.

 

Open/Close MIDI Insert 11 Plug-in Window of focused Track – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Open/Close MIDI Insert 11 Plug-in Window of focused Track

Another bogus command. There are only 8 MIDI Insert slots (Logic Pro X 10.4.6).

Set Track and MIDI Thru Parameters by Region/Folder – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Set Track and MIDI Thru Parameters by Region/Folder

This was hard to track down.

My current description is…with a region (or multiple regions) selected the command will set the defaults for track and MIDI regions to the settings of the selected region(s).

Much confusion occurred. Documentation refers to “MIDI Thru” as the region name. I have seen that. I tested the command and changed some MIDI defaults. Now the defaulted region is named “MIDI Defaults”. The latest documentation doesn’t reference “MIDI Thru” and uses the term defaults.

A “simpler” description is the region named “MIDI Thru” contains the MIDI settings that are applied to any MIDI coming in to Logic – like a MIDI Thru port – probably not the easiest thing for the non-MIDI generation to understand as the implication of the word “Thru”.

My Logic now reads “MIDI Defaults” – checking a different system to see what it looks like. My other Mac says “MIDI Defaults”. Following is an image from Apple…MIDI Thru Lives!

 

Region inspector – Logic Pro X:

The Region inspector shows parameters for the selected region or regions, including Quantize and other parameters. Some parameters are shared, while others are available for only audio or MIDI regions. There are additional advanced quantization parameters that you can view and edit by clicking the More disclosure triangle.

You can also open the Region inspector in a separate floating window.

MIDI Thru Lives!

Open/Close MIDI Insert 9 Plug-in Window of focused Track – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Open/Close MIDI Insert 9 Plug-in Window of focused Track

 This is one of the “suspect commands” for me. How would I know which insert is in slot 9? In Logic Pro X you can only insert 8 MIDI plugins, so the 9-15 commands are bogons (bogus bits/particles).

An audio channel can have 15 inserts, but again, how would I know what is in slot 7 to begin with?

Time to check the predecessors. I can’t find any reference at all pre-Logic Pro X. I did find this…

Open/Close Instrument Plug-In Window of Focused Track:

While everyone is elated about the new addition in SMART TEMPO in Logic X, I am secretly celebrating another hidden feature in 10.4. It is called “Open/Close Instrument Plug-In Window of Focused Track”. Logic users have been asking for this particular feature for years and now it is here. Let me show and tell you what this does.

I also got to play a bit with using the PX-330 as a GM MIDI module.
