Remove Overlaps \ – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Remove Overlaps    \

Removing overlaps is essentially the same as the “Trim Region” commands. If there are no overlapping regions the command changes nothing.

Resize regions in the Tracks area – Logic Pro X:

 

 

Remove overlaps between regions

 

Select the overlapping regions, or select all regions on the track by clicking the track header.

 

Choose Edit > Trim > Remove Overlaps (or press \).

 

Where the selected regions overlap, the length of the left (earlier) region is reduced to remove the overlap.

Copy MIDI Events… – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Copy MIDI Events…

The command is found in the “Edit” menu of the usual places – Tracks, Events, Piano Roll. Unlikely that I would turn this into a keyboard command. There are lots of things to be fiddled with.

Edit events overview – Logic Pro X:

The Event List L(ock), M(ute), Position, Status, Ch(annel), Num(ber), Val(ue), and Length/Info columns display all details of all event types. In most cases, you can directly edit the data displayed (except for the Status column, which indicates the event type).

 

 There is more detailed discussion of this in the Piano Roll documentation.

Copy notes in the Piano Roll Editor – Logic Pro X:

There are a number of ways to copy or move notes in the Piano Roll Editor. In addition to Option-dragging or using the Copy and Paste menu commands, there are advanced Copy and Move operations such as directly swapping events, or merging a group of notes from one section of a region to the same region, or another region.

1/8 Page Right – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  1/8 Page Right

 Move the visible part of the current page in the Score Editor.

As far as I can tell “1/8 page” is 1/8 of the visible score. If your visible score is 8 bars wide then you can move the score a bar at a time. Handy.

Score layout overview – Logic Pro X:

You should use Linear Score view for editing, as screen redraws are much faster, especially on slower computers.

Notation overview – Logic Pro X:

You can view MIDI regions in software instrument (and external MIDI instrument) tracks as music notation in the Score Editor. Notes and other musical events are displayed as standard notation, along with common symbols such as time and key signature, bar lines, and clef signs. You can add and edit notes, add sustain pedal markings and other symbols, and print the score.

Apply Default Crossfade ⌃⌥X – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Apply Default Crossfade  ⌃⌥X

 When editing it is important to create a crossfade at the boundary where the edit occurs. Left side fades out, right side fades in with the fades cross at the point where edit was made. It is quite possible for there to be an audible click or pop if the cross fade isn’t made.

I have”Fade Tool click zones” as well as “Marquee Tool click zones”. The Fade Tool click zones are the upper left and right corners of a region in editing windows. If you place the cursor between two regions that are adjacent the Fade Tool does a crossfade. Left corner, fade in. Right corner fade out.

The default crossfade time is set in the Audio preferences “Editing” tab. Twenty milliseconds.

I need to remember the “Equal Power” crossfade so I can use it when I “clip gain” a region. Get a better transition with differing levels.

Create fades – Logic Pro X:

You can fade in the beginning of audio regions, and fade out the end of audio regions (including audio Apple Loops).

Fades are only visible if you are zoomed in enough to see the waveform in the audio region. You can create a fade using either the Fade tool or the Fade In and Fade Out parameters in the Region inspector.

Set Region Anchor to Next Transient – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Set Region Anchor to Next Transient

I haven’t found a good explanation of “the anchor”. Sometimes it says start of audio in file, sometimes a position in the Audio File editor. Time for me to find some books that “teach” Logic Pro.

Use transient markers to make selections – Logic Pro X:

You can use transient markers to select part of an audio file for editing purposes.
