  New Multi-Instrument

Located in the ‘New’ menu in the environment window. These days I only have one ‘real’ MIDI instrument, my PX330 digital piano. It is multi-timbral. I might find a use for working in the environment sometime.

Good timing. My study plan for the day is directed at software instruments, MIDI, and connecting both audio and MIDI data on the same track/channel strip.

Haven’t found a decent description of what this does or why I would want to do it.

Today I will search the online help instead of the user guide. Let’s see if I get quicker or different results.

Resize selected objects using key commands
Use the following key commands to decrease or increase the width or height of selected objects by 1 pixel:

A nice, direct link. Now the User Guide.

Same spot in the User Guide. Working in the Environment.

  Apply Buffer Template to Definition
 

This appears in the ‘Options’ menu in the Environment window. The best that I can determine is that the “buffer” is actually the clipboard.

Someday I will find a decent tutorial that can help me learn to use the Environment, Big subject.

Environment overview
The Environment refers to the virtual environment of Logic Pro inside your computer. It provides a virtual view of your MIDI studio, giving you complete control over your MIDI setup, and includes the following objects.

Physical Input and Sequencer Input objects: Represent the physical MIDI inputs of your MIDI interface and the Logic Pro input.

Instrument objects: Virtual representations of each MIDI device (synthesizers and samplers, for example) in your MIDI rig.

Faders, knobs, switches, and other objects: Used to create new data, or to control and modify the MIDI signal flow in real time.”

Hunting the Logic Pro X ‘Environment’

@StudioIntern1 #LogicProX

Today’s ‘command’ was “MIDI Environment”. I know so little. I have the chapter in the Logic Pro X User Manual.

Off hunting for resources out there in the internet.

  MIDI Environment

Today’s command is actually an entire section. All of the commands in the MIDI Environment are listed here.

A tremendous amount of work can be accomplished here, in fact, it is the place where we can place plugins on the input channel for recording effects to the audio track.

This is another part of Logic Pro X that I have barely scratched the surface of. A chapter to read, maybe find some tutorials. If I wanted to “abuse my tools” this is where I would probably start.
