New Monitor – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  New Monitor

Creates a new monitor object in the current layer of the MIDI Environment. There is a 32 event limit which seems small, but in reality is certainly enough for almost any command series. SysEX need not apply.

Monitor objects in the Logic Pro Environment – Apple Support

A monitor object displays all events (MIDI and meta) passing through it. It remembers the last 32 events, with the newest events shown at the bottom of the list. You can resize it to show from 1 to 32 events. Clicking anywhere in the body of the monitor clears all events.

 

Apply Buffer Template to Cable(s) – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Apply Buffer Template to Cable(s)

Set the attributes of selected cables to those contained in the buffer template.

Highly unlikely that I will be building a virtual mixing desk or instrument.

Object groups in the Logic Pro Environment – Apple Support

When building a virtual mixing desk or synthesizer layout in the Environment, you often need to work with large groups of fader objects that have the same size, regular spacing, or a similar definition.

To save time on the definition and alignment of these groups, you can choose (one or more) objects as prototypes (templates) by copying them into the Clipboard. (Choose Edit > Copy.) You can then apply certain characteristics of these template objects to selected objects.

Clear Cables only ⌃⌫ – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Clear Cables only    ⌃⌫

Remove the cables from the current selection in the Environment.

Cable Environment objects in in Logic Pro – Apple Support

Choose Edit > Clear Cables only to remove the selected cables, without clearing any objects that happen to be selected.

This is useful when you want to clear all cables leading to, or from, one or more objects, due to the fact that selecting objects also selects all associated cable connections.

Send All Current Fader Values – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Send All Current Fader Values

Send everything that we have. Essentially sets everything to the currently displayed settings.

Probably very useful when trying to program the environment and wanting to have a known state of things.

Special functions in the Logic Pro Environment – Apple Support

Sending fader values: Choose Options > Send All Fader Values (or use the Send All Current Fader Values key command) to make all fader objects send their current values. Choose Options > Send Selected Fader Values to make all selected fader objects send their current values.

 

Object Width +1 Pixel ⌥⇧→ – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Object Width +1 Pixel  ⌥⇧→

Change the size of the selected object – make it one pixel wider.

In the days of retina displays and massive numbers of pixels it remains unclear about how useful this is. A 19 inch screen that is 1024×768 pixels has a pixel count of approximately 100 per inch. My Retina 5K iMac (5120×2880) is closer to 320 pixels per inch. My eyesight can’t distinguish a single pixel difference in dimension anymore.

Adjust position, size of objects in the Logic Pro Environment – Apple Support

Objects can be freely placed, which allows for flexibility, but can lead to overlaps or misalignments—particularly when pasting between layers. Fortunately, you can quickly clean up object positions.
