Select And Operate using Transform User Preset 19 – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Select And Operate using Transform User Preset 19

Invoke program 19 on the MIDI region we have selected. I have to remember that Logic comes from the age of 20th-Century computing. “Back in the day” these commands would have been empowering. We can still use them, just no need to really have a dedicated command per preset. Times change.

Depending on your needs, it may be worthwhile to create your own transform sets. These can be configured and saved as part of a project. (Doing this in your template projects makes your transform sets available in all projects.) Your transform sets are shown at the bottom of the Presets pop-up menu.

 

Toggle Selected Track(s) or Channel Strip(s) Record Region Automation Mode – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Toggle Selected Track(s) or Channel Strip(s) Record Region Automation Mode

The “Record Region Automation Mode” switch is located in the automation pop-up menu for software instruments, and external MIDI instruments.

I am still not clear about recording automation into MIDI regions.

I am not the only one…

(5) Recording live region automation? – Logic Pro Help

I’m trying to record Expression (MIDI CC #11) using Logic’s automation record feature (tried both Touch and Latch), but no joy.

When recording, you can record region-based automation data into MIDI regions on software instrument tracks even if tracks are in Read mode. The ability to remain in Read mode is a huge time-saving asset, freeing you from switching back and forth from automation mode.

 

Choose automation modes in Logic Pro – Apple Support

When recording, you can record region-based automation data into MIDI regions on software instrument tracks even if the track is in Read mode. In Logic Pro, do one of the following:

 Choose automation modes in Logic Pro – Apple Support

Read: Plays back all automation that exists on the track. If volume data exists, for example, the Volume fader moves during playback, following the prerecorded automation on the track. You can’t change the value of the chosen automation parameter by moving controls when in Read mode. However, you can record region-based information directly into a MIDI region in Read mode.

 If You Use Region Automation, This Is A Tip That Will Change The Way You Use It – YouTube

Region automation in Logic has been around for a while now. It’s excellent for automated parameter values that need to get moved with regions when copying/pasting/dragging them around the timeline. A problem arises, however, when some parts contain region automation, and others don’t. Does Logic chase the last used value? Or does it use the static default value set by you initially? Watch this video to learn how to control this critical behaviour that affects the playback of your mixes.

 The region automation setting discussed in the YouTube video from Logic Pro Expert is a project-specific setting.

Once you’ve captured your primary performance, it’s not uncommon to want to add some MIDI continuous controller message to enhance the part. Maybe it’s via an expression pedal to add some CC 11 data for more refined dynamic movement. Perhaps you want to use some knobs or sliders on your keyboard controller to create some movement of one or more of the soft synth parameters you are triggering.

Select All Aliases of Region ⌥⇧A – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Select All Aliases of Region   ⌥⇧A

Selects all aliases of the currently selected region.

Create MIDI aliases in the Logic Pro Tracks area – Apple Support

You can create an alias for a MIDI region or a folder. An alias is a reference to a region, and looks similar to a normal region in the Tracks area. If you alter the original region, all aliases of the region are similarly altered.

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.

 NB When making aliases it is important to make sure that Preferences/General/Editing:’Select regions on track selection’  is not checked. That way you can select a region, select a track, move the playhead, and create the alias in that spot. It is probably a good idea to create a keyboard shortcut for the command ‘Toggle Select Regions on Track Selection’.

The Event List accepts real-time and step recording of MIDI events, as described in Overview of recording in Logic Pro. Similar to the other MIDI editors, you can also create events directly in the Event List.

 

Separate MIDI Region by Note Pitch – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Separate MIDI Region by Note Pitch

Separates the MIDI region into multiple regions, each with only one note pitch. Each note pitch gets a separate track. Remarkably handy for drum parts.

Demix MIDI regions in the Logic Pro Tracks area – Apple Support

This feature is especially useful for separating drum parts that have been recorded into Logic Pro from a drum machine where all notes are on the same MIDI channel. Each note region can then be assigned to another channel strip, or perhaps some can be deleted, to thin out the original drum pattern.

Does Your Brain Hurt When This Message Come Up? Read On For Instant Headache Relief | Logic Pro:

We’ve all been there. We’re in the heat of working, editing away; we make a snip or cut with either a key command, menu function, or tool, and bam. It pops up. Stopping us dead in our tracks. We’re locked out of doing anything else and are confronted with a do-or-die decision that we must make before we can move forward. The entire universe is shrunken down to a simple call to action. Keep, shorten, or split. But, but, but…. what do they each do?

Eli’s explanations are always helpful. Split? Keep?

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.

Change event position and length in Logic Pro – Apple Support

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.

  Apply Transform User Preset  5 to selected Events

“Calling macro 5, macro 5 can you please come to the front desk. We need your expertise here.”

I have to remember the timeline of Logic. Its roots are 30 years old. Having any kind of preset is a workflow enhancer.

The built-in presets can be used to spark your imagination.

I write little macros all the time in text editors, don’t see why I wouldn’t if I was working on an involved MIDI project.
