Show/Hide Project Audio – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Show/Hide Project Audio

Shows or hides the project audio browser. There is a button in the control bar – one of the browser collection – that can be used to show the project audio.

The browsers (and the commands) show evidence of being added to and changed over time. Project Audio is clumped with browsers, but not called a browser. “Media” browser has no command available to show or hide, just clicking on the “Media” tab in the audio/media/file browser.

There is a command sequence on the Logic Control – SHIFT-F8 – that is mapped to ‘Show/Hide Project Audio’. A bit of reading in the Control Surfaces manual leads us to the term ‘Audio Bin’ which is now known as ‘Project Audio’.

A lot of the Logic workflow can be inferred when reading _old_ documentation.

Show/Hide Browsers F – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Show/Hide Browsers    F

Opens and closes the audio browsers side of the main screen. Project Audio, Media, All Files. Like a tiny Finder interface, but nothing like the Finder at all.

In the beginning I would use the Finder to locate files and them drag them into the Tracks area. This works, but doesn’t allow the kind of control that I get using the All Files browser. These days I use All Files and move audio to tracks in a more organized way.
