Time For an Occasional Reminder re: How to Pay For My Books – Whatever

Don’t send me money directly for the books I write, actually go ahead and buy them from a bookstore.

John Scalzi on giving him money directly as opposed to through his publisher. I kind of wish I trusted the record labels as much as Mr. Scalzi trusts his publisher.

I think he’s right.

I have made inquiry to record labels asking how to get the most money to the artists, and received replies. In a t least one case the artist work had been “for hire” so it didn’t matter, they got payed to perform.

Support the people and organizations that make the things you love possible. Really.

Set Optimal Region Sizes Rounded by Note Value – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Set Optimal Region Sizes Rounded by Note Value

The word “optimal” cannot be found in the Logic Pro X documentation except in the keyboard shortcut reference section. Literally no discussion of the command located – “Set Optimal Region Sizes Rounded by Bar”, and no mention at all of the command of the day.

Little to no reference found on the web.

Let’s check Logic Pro 9 help file…bingo

Our command used to be called “Set Optimal Region Sizes Rounded by Denominator” which only makes sense if you treat your music as if it had a time signature – what a relic.

There is an entire section of the “old” manual that doesn’t exist in Logic Pro X documentation. I have extracted that and saved a copy here…

Logic Pro 9 User Manual: Resizing Regions

 

The MIDI > Set Optimal Region Sizes Rounded by Bar command (or the corresponding key command, default assignment:  Shift-Command-B) reduces or increases the length of a selected MIDI region, making it just large enough to contain the events (or regions, if a folder) within it. The region borders are rounded to the nearest bar.
