The header area at the top of a plug-in window is common to all plug-ins. You can use it to adjust the size of the window, link plug-in windows when more than one is open, switch the plug-in parameter view, and route side chain source signals.

 NB These are Global Commands. You can open the plugin windows for a track even if you can’t see the channel strip in any of the visible views. It’s kind of nice to be able to work with a plugin without the distraction of the standard mixer or channel views.

Confused By Reverb? This Might be The Plug-in You Need | Production Expert

Confused By Reverb? This Might be The Plug-in You Need | Production Expert

If you haven’t checked out FabFilter’s Pro-R reverb you absolutely should because reverb presents some specific challenges to the UI designer. Reverb is complicated. it’s a fact, and broadly speaking there have been two common ways to address this in a UI. Either present just a few controls and let the user dial in a room, hall or whatever, adjust decay time and an HF damping and get on with it (i.e. present simplicity at the expense of control), or present a comprehensive set of parameters and scare off some of the users.

The FabFilter “Beginner’s Guide to Reverb” should be required homework before using any reverb. Most of the controls are available in lots of ‘verbs’ – but the Pro-R interface is sooooo pretty.

The presentation really presses home the points of how the pieces really work…

Open/Close Audio Insert 10 Plug-in Window of focused Track – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Open/Close Audio Insert 10 Plug-in Window of focused Track

Opens or closes the tenth audio insert on the focused track. Unlikely that I would have ten inserts. The key point here is “focused track”. There is no way to toggle the state on all of the selected channels/tracks.

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.

Open/Close MIDI Insert 8 Plug-in Window of focused Track – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Open/Close MIDI Insert 8 Plug-in Window of focused Track

Opens the plug-in in the eighth slot on a MIDI instrument (external or software instrument). The number of MIDI inserts seems a bit excessive to me, there being documentation for 15 slots, with only 8 actually available. I suspect there are some sequences of arpeggiators or other mapping/modification tools that could be applied.
