Delete MIDI Events Outside Region Boundaries – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Delete MIDI Events Outside Region Boundaries

Deletes events that are not in the current region. This is confusing to me. If I insert notes outside of a MIDI region the region gets extended to include the new notes. They are not “outside”. If I shrink the region (move back so new notes are not visible) the notes are not in the region. If I extend the region the notes come back.

If I delete events outside of the region boundaries while the region is “shrunk” then the events are deleted.

I am not visualizing a workflow where this would happen.

Event Channel = 1 – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Event Channel =   1

Set the channel of selected events to channel 1. Sets the MIDI channel for the events.

Edit Event List events in Logic Pro – Apple Support

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).

 

Relative Position ⌃⇧R – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Relative Position  ⌃⇧R

Show the MIDI event positions in a region as if the events occurred with the beginning of the region at the start. This can be very useful when working with region that may repeat at different points in a project. Handy. If Relative Position is set then Show Event Position and Length as Time will cause the position to start at 00:00:00.

View > Relative Position: Causes the event positions to refer to their relative positions within the MIDI region (their distance from the start of the MIDI region), rather than to their absolute location within the project.

 

Select Previous Region/Cell/Event or Move Marquee End (or Marquee Point) to Previous Transient ← – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Select Previous Region/Cell/Event or Move Marquee End (or Marquee Point) to Previous Transient    ←

The classic left arrow. Select the previous “thing”. This is one of the highly overloaded key command – five more commands that take higher priority depending on context.

I wonder why they simply didn’t define it as multiple commands – the Marquee descriptions can be confusing.

Select regions in the Logic Pro Tracks area – Apple Support

To perform some edits on regions, you must first select the regions. You can select one or multiple regions, select regions on different tracks, and quickly select muted regions, overlapped regions, or regions meeting other criteria. Selected regions appear brighter in the Tracks area than unselected regions.

Event Channel = 10 – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Event Channel =  10

Set the channel of the selected event(s) to 10.

Sometimes using keyboard commands is easier than trying to drag numbers up and down, typing in numbers.

There are some special considerations with MIDI channels in the event list. If you select multiple events, open a channel number for editing (double-click so you can type), and type a number in the selected events will be changed relatively. Select channels 11, 12, and 13, change the 11 to 6, you will get channels 6, 7, and 8. Change to 12 and you get 12, 13, and 14. The same thing happens if you type in a number, or drag the number up or down.

If you use the ‘Event Channel = 10’ command all of the events will have their channel changed to 10 with no relative changes. Good to know…

Essentially you execute the ‘Event Channel +1’ and ‘Event Channel -1’ when you drag the channel numbers up and down.

Change event values in Logic Pro – Apple Support

You can change the event values shown in the Event List Value, Number, and Channel columns by using the mouse as a slider or with text input. You can not directly alter the event type in the Status column.
