Open Metronome Project Settings… – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Open Metronome Project Settings…

Opens the Metronome Settings. I have never played with the metronome settings – I mostly do playback. It is kind of nice to be able to have the metronome be a MIDI device. It is also nice to be able to send the metronome to any of the stereo pairs available on your audio interface.

Metronome settings in Logic Pro – Apple Support

The Metronome project settings combine all parameters for speaker click, MIDI click, and Klopfgeist—a virtual metronome sound source. Klopfgeist can be used in addition to, or in place of, the speaker and MIDI click sources.

 Logic Pro Klopfgeist – Apple Support

Klopfgeist is an instrument that provides a metronome click. It is inserted in instrument channel strip 256 by default and is used to generate the MIDI metronome click.

  Toggle Metronome Click    K

Turns the metronome on and off. I should try doing this while working on a track sometime, just to hear how far things may slip.

Use the metronome in Logic Pro – Apple Support

Logic Pro includes a metronome, which plays a steady beat (like a “click track”) to help you play and record in time. You can turn the metronome on or off when you’re recording, or any time your project is playing. The metronome always plays at the project tempo. This means that if a tempo map has been created by Smart Tempo, the metronome automatically follows it. It also means that if Smart Tempo is automatically adapting the project tempo to the performance being recorded, the timing of the metronome adapts along with it. For more information about Smart Tempo, see Logic Pro Smart Tempo overview.

 

 “K” is for Klopfgeist | Logic Pro

Klopfgeist is the software instrument that powers Logic’s Metronome function. For many of us, there’s not much more to think about with the Klopfgeist other than enabling the Metronome and hitting “record.” But there’s plenty to dig into with our trusty and unwavering click. Whether it be for utility or creativity.

Here’s the idiot-proof version for those who have never worked in environment before. I like having a separate individually adjustable click track:

This is a very handy little trick – make a MIDI recording of the click track.

 

Here’s the idiot-proof version for those who have never worked in environment before. I like having a separate individually adjustable click track:

1) Make sure tempo is as you wish it to be. Create a MIDI instrument track and choose instrument Utility->Klofgeist. Leave that track selected

2) From the Logic Main window, Open Environment window. WINDOW->OPEN MIDI ENVIRONMENT

2) At Upper Left Corner of Environment window , Pull down menu “Layer” with default value “Mixer” to choice “Clicks and Ports” ( Layer->Clicks and Ports)

3) Click and hold on the little arrow in (MIDI Click icon) and drag to (Sequencer Input) icon there is some confirmation I forgot but I accepted. A line should stay when you release, something like appears below.

4) Close Environment window

5) Make sure the click track you created is in Record mode and start recording. Boxes should appear, sent from the metronome to the track. Those notes comprise your click track.
