Event Channel = 9 – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Event Channel =   9

Set the Event Channel number for the selected events to 9. This saves you from having to use the cursor to drag a value up or down. You can also change the Event Channel for the selected events by double-clicking the channel field (open for editing) and typing in the channel number 1..16 and pressing return.

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.

 

Show/Hide Assign 1 – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Show/Hide Assign 1

Toggle the visibility of MIDI Assignable Controller knob 5.

There I times when I wish I could return to my 1990s MIDI rack and program and mix with 21st century tools. Of course I can get almost all of the MIDI gear in software, so it’s simply about racks of gear. Should spend some time with Reason so it can look pretty 😉

Trim Note to Remove Overlaps for Selected – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Trim Note to Remove Overlaps for Selected

The menu commands say ‘with’, the key command says ‘for’. Odd.

Multiple notes must be selected. The notes that occur earlier in the time line get shortened. Quick way to clean up sloppy “playing”.

  Select And Operate using Transform User Preset 18

Select events and change them according to the rules of User Preset 18.

Use MIDI transform sets in Logic Pro – Apple Support

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.

 

Select And Operate using Transform User Preset 20 – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Select And Operate using Transform User Preset 20

Process the MIDI events using program 20. Lots of program slots. Unlikely to ever need 30 user-defined programs. The built-in programs do a lot of the typical heavy lifting.

Logic Pro MIDI Transform window overview – Apple Support

The MIDI Transform window is a powerful tool for edits that would otherwise be impossible (or tedious). For example, imagine an orchestral project that has been sent to you for editing. The individual violin and viola parts were recorded with a different string library. Two hundred MIDI regions contain aftertouch information that introduces an unpleasant pitch modulation, and some sample layer switching artifacts when played with your string samples. After looking at this aftertouch information, you discover that only a small range of values is causing the problem. Your options: edit your sampler instruments, manually remove all aftertouch information (region by region, or globally, thus losing the performance benefits that the aftertouch information provides), or alter the problematic values in the MIDI Transform window.

 

Select And Operate using Transform User Preset 23 – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Select And Operate using Transform User Preset 23

Execute MIDI transformation 23, please. I don’t know what it does, but I suspect that I will remember it.

Plenty of macros available. The built-ins cover my needs.

Create Lane ⌥⌘N – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Create Lane    ⌥⌘N

The comparison between lanes in the Step Editor and tracks in the Tracks area is helpful.

The Step Editor should not be confused with the Step Sequencer.

The Step Editor allows you to create detailed editing windows for MIDI events that can contain lots of details that need to be attended to.

Logic Pro Step Editor Overview – Apple Support

Lane: Each MIDI event type, be it a note or MIDI controller, is arranged from top to bottom in horizontal lanes much like the track lanes shown in the Tracks area. The type of event shown, and controlled, on each lane is freely configurable. You do this by setting Lane parameters (for each lane) in the inspector. For more information, see Logic Pro lane parameters overview.

 

Open/Close MIDI Insert 14 Plug-in Window of focused Track – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Open/Close MIDI Insert 14 Plug-in Window of focused Track

Opens (closes) the 14th MIDI Insert plug-in. That’s an awful lot of MIDI inserts on a channel.

Use MIDI plug-ins in Logic Pro – Apple Support

MIDI plug-ins are inserted in software instrument channel strips and process or generate MIDI data—played from a MIDI region or a MIDI keyboard—in real time. Included are the Arpeggiator, Chord Trigger, and Modulator, along with plug-ins for transposition, randomization and other processing. Scripter enables you to create your own MIDI processing and generation scripts.

MIDI plug-ins are connected in series before the audio path of a software instrument channel strip.

MIDI plug-ins have a MIDI input, the MIDI processor, and a MIDI output. The output signals sent from MIDI plug-ins are standard MIDI events such as MIDI note or controller messages.

Event Channel -1 – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Event Channel -1

Decrement the channel number of the selected events.

This is a quick way of changing the (potential) instrument for a given MIDI event. Valuable when working with multi-channel software instruments or external devices.

Assign notes to voices and staffs in Logic Pro – Apple Support

In cases where the division between voices needs to be more flexible, you can separate voices by assigning each voice to a different MIDI channel. This allows voices to cross while still being displayed independently. Notes not assigned to any MIDI channel are not displayed, allowing you to “hide” notes from display (such as improvised parts or trill notes, for example). This does not affect playback, but only the display of notes in the score (the playback channel is determined by the setting in the Track inspector).

Logic Pro X: Designing Electronic Drums Kits with Drum Machine Designer – dummies

Drum Machine Designer is a software instrument interface for building electronic drum kits and customizing drum sounds in Logic Pro X. Drum Machine Designer loads automatically with many of drummer’s library presets. Logic Pro’s Drum Machine Designer includes the following components:

Quick introduction to using Drum Machine Designer. NB how to get DMD on a track/channel.

My goal is to create a drum machine in Logic using the drum samples/sounds from an EZDrummer kit. Time will tell.

Control Multiple Instruments on Different MIDI Channels – Logic Pro Help

Control Multiple Instruments on Different MIDI Channels – Logic Pro Help

Controlling multiple instruments on different MIDI channels in Logic is easy, and it does not require you to ever open the environment! It also allows you to record different controller keyboards on different software instrument or external MIDI tracks. Whether you’re trying to use an external sequencer (like an MPC 2000, or even another computer running Logic) to trigger instruments within Logic, or whether you’re simply trying to play different instruments using different MIDI controllers, read on.

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.

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.

Capturing MIDI Controller Automation After Recording MIDI In Logic Pro | Logic Pro

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.
