Scrub Rewind – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Scrub Rewind

Scrub while rewinding. I use the jog wheel on the X-Touch in most cases. Press the SCRUB button and move the jog wheel in the proper direction. It is easier to speed up/slow down using the wheel.

Slicing cuts the audio material at transient markers, then shifts the audio while playing each slice at its original speed. No time compression or expansion is applied to the shifted audio. Any gaps that occur as a result of shifting the audio can be filled using the decay function. Slicing is a good choice for drums and percussion and comes with the following parameters:

  Scrub Forward

Scrub the playhead forward. Assigning forward and backward to keys might help the process. Remembering how to get audio to play while scrubbing helps too.
