Manage key command sets in Logic Remote on iPhone – Apple Support

Manage key command sets in Logic Remote on iPhone – Apple Support

As soon as you edit the original key command set for Logic Pro in Logic Remote, a LogicKeyCommands.plist file is saved to the File Sharing area. You can share, back up, or restore the key command set from the File Sharing area.

I want to reset the key commands in Logic Remote to their default state. My reading of the documentation tells me that removing the file(s) LogicKeyCommands.plist from the Logic Remote space (see using the Finder to work with files on iPad and iPhone).

Deleting the plist file resets the key commands.

NB Key command layout is problematic if you want to share key commands between Logic Remote on iPad and iPhone.

Add, remove, and edit key commands in Logic Remote on iPhone – Apple Support

After you turn on key command editing, you can add, remove, move, and customize key commands to suit your own workflow needs. You can also organize key commands by color.

The default commands in Logic Remote are numerous, and not very interesting for my work. I need to create a set of commands. I will start by removing some.

Tap the Settings icon (gear) at the top right of the display. Choose ‘Edit Key Commands’. Edit/Move/Delete as desired. Tap ‘Done’.

When searching for commands I can press the microphone button on the search field and speak the command.

I was inspired by going through the complete Groove3 tutorial for Logic Remote.

Mapping Remix FX to Launchpad in Logic Pro – 9to5Mac

Mapping Remix FX to Launchpad in Logic Pro – 9to5Mac

Considering how simple it is to download Logic Remote for free and use your iPhone as a sort of always-on, heads-up display, solely for Remix FX, alongside your Launchpad, I’m still not sure any of this is worth the trouble anyway. As much as I would like to have this one, single Logic Pro controller instrument in front me that I can completely master, and ignore as much of everything else as possible, Launchpad’s touch-button toggles and faders just don’t seem to be able to keep up with Apple’s remote multi-touch screen control. I get it, with Logic Remote you can be flipping and waving your fingers across the iPad, automatically and simultaneously engaging and adjusting various FX with immersive touch and swipe movements. And it all just works immediately and always with no mapping needed.

Quick Help Follows Pointer – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Quick Help Follows Pointer

This is an important setting. Logic Pro X has an extensive help system that can be displayed in various ways.

The simple method, after enabling Quick Help, shows a ‘tool tip’ window in yellow containing help for whatever is currently beneath the cursor. Quite handy, but it can be visually annoying.

You can cause the help info to be displayed in a small Quick Help window by making sure this option is un-checked. The option is in the Help menu. The location of the Quick Help window is the top of the Inspector column in the main window.

You can drag the Quick Help window out of the main window and position it anywhere on the screen that you would like. This becomes very useful for screensets that do not have the main window open.

If you have an iPad running “Logic Remote” connected to your session you can put the Quick Help window onto the iPad using one of the built-in commands.

I need to use “Logic Remote” more often.

3rd Party Plug-In Control Surface Parameter Lists – Logic Pro Help

3rd Party Plug-In Control Surface Parameter Lists – Logic Pro Help

Since Logic 9, we have CSParameterOrder.plist files for Logic’s native plug-ins. These can be made for 3rd party plug-ins as well. These lists allow you to reorder or remove parameters as they appear on a supported control surface.

Useful discussion of using parameter lists to change the order of controls when working with control surfaces. The default controls for EQ are great, but many plugins need better arrangements.

I’m still dealing with Smart Controls – a whole different story.
