  Quantize Selected Events    Q    ⌘:6:

Quantization is very “fiddly”, but essential to create good sounding music. With MIDI notes both time and pitch can be quantized. Audio regions present a different challenge for editing.

From what I can see the typical drum editing task (getting hits “in time”) can be accomplished to a great extent with a simple quantization to the appropriate division. Want those kick hits right on the beat? Turn on Flex Editing and quantize to a quarter note.

Quantize regions – Logic Pro X

Quantizing involves the rhythmic correction of audio or MIDI regions to a specific time grid. Any notes not played in time are moved to the nearest position on the grid.

  Advanced Quantization Parameters

Expose the advanced quantization parameters in the Region Inspector. Essentially this clicks the exposure triangle on the “More” section of the inspector. For MIDI regions you can see things like Q-velocity (see image). For audio regions you can expose the fade and delay settings.

Advanced quantization parameters – Logic Pro X

When Show Advanced Tools is selected in the Advanced preferences pane, you can quantize regions with greater precision using the advanced quantization parameters in the Region inspector. Using the advanced parameters, you can apply a swing or other quantize feel to MIDI regions. Not all advanced quantization parameters are available for audio regions.
