Show/Hide Note Pad ⌥⌘P – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Show/Hide Note Pad    ⌥⌘P

The menu command is “Show Note Pads” using the plural.

The Note Pad is a very under-used tool. I am clearly guilty of it.

There are “pages” in the Note Pad for the project, and one for each track.

If you use Alternatives (I do a lot): the Note Pad contents are Alternative specific. Separate sets of notes for each alternative.

Text files cannot be “dropped” into the Note Pad, but images and PDF files can be.

It would be great if the Note Pad could be “detached” from the Arrange window and allowed to float in the project.


The Complete Guide to Recording Electric Guitar — Pro Audio Files

The Complete Guide to Recording Electric Guitar — Pro Audio Files

One of the biggest fundamentals of getting great guitar tone is having a taste for great guitar tone. It would be hard to cook something in the French culinary style if you’ve never had French food. Yet, I see a lot of guitarists and engineers approach recording guitar this way.

At the heart of any great tone is great ears. Tools like microphones and amps can help sculpt your tone, but if you haven’t acquired a taste for fine tone, how will you know when you’ve arrived?

It’s not simply a matter of placing a mic in position and pressing record. Great guitar tone is often the culmination of many elements.

This sums up lots of thoughts about electric guitar (and other things run through the amps and pedals). 

My struggle is with DI signal that’s way too distorted when distorted, and way too loud when the volume pedal got pressed (I think it was a wah-wah). Finally figured out something that started to work, but still have a very hard time.
