Fix Displayed Note Positions and Durations – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Fix Displayed Note Positions and Durations

When MIDI regions are quantized it can have an effect on the notes as displayed in a score. The notes will be played according to the quantized rhythm, with the displayed notes representing things differently.

Swing (jazz performance style) – Wikipedia

In music, the term swing has two main uses. Colloquially, it is used to describe the propulsive quality or “feel” of a rhythm, especially when the music prompts a visceral response such as foot-tapping or head-nodding (see pulse). This sense can also be called “groove”.

Sometimes a well-meaning composer or arranger will try to approximate a jazz swing style notationally in this way:

 Logic Pro Quantize region parameter – Apple Support

You can fix the display quantization of all MIDI events in the projects using the Score Editor’s Functions > Quantization > Fix displayed Note Positions and Fix displayed Note Positions and Durations commands. These commands may be useful for exporting projects (complete with display Quantize settings) to other notation programs that don’t feature display quantization. The commands are also available from the shortcut menu when you Control-click notes in the score.

Quantize 1/8 Swing F – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Quantize 1/8 Swing F

Set the quantization to an eighth note, swing pattern F (swing percentage 71%) The current quantization value is displayed in the Region inspector. There are two controls – the Quantize menu and the value menu.

Logic Pro Quantize parameter values – Apple Support

Swing quantization: The 1/16 Swing A-F settings delay the position of every second point in the quantization grid by a fixed percentage. You can also manually alter the swing factor of any Quantize value.

Quantize 1/8 Triplet (1/12) – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Quantize 1/8 Triplet (1/12)

Sets the quantization value to an eighth-note triplet (one twelfth of a 4/4 bar).

Quantize regions in Logic Pro – Apple Support

The Quantize parameter in the Region inspector applies to whole regions. If you want different parts of a region to have different Quantize values, you can split the region, apply different quantize settings to different segments, and then join them using the Join command or the Glue tool.

 

Quantize 1/8 Note – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Quantize 1/8 Note

Set quantization to an eighth note. Selecting a group of notes with the Quantize Tool will adjust them to eighth note positions.

Logic Pro Quantize parameter values – Apple Support

The Quantize parameter is non-destructive. It adjusts the playback positions of notes in MIDI regions when Logic Pro is in playback or record mode. The original positions are kept in the regions, so you can go back to the original timing.

 

Quantize 1/1 Note – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Quantize 1/1 Note

Quantize to a whole note. I always think it is strange to see 1/1 to represent a whole note.

Logic Pro Quantize parameter values – Apple Support

The Quantize parameter is non-destructive. It adjusts the playback positions of notes in MIDI regions when Logic Pro is in playback or record mode. The original positions are kept in the regions, so you can go back to the original timing.

 Quantize regions in Logic Pro – Apple Support

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.

You can quantize regions in the Tracks area by using the Quantize parameter in the Region inspector. Several advanced quantization parameters are also available in the Region inspector for greater control over quantization.

Before you quantize audio regions on an audio track, you must assign a flex mode to the audio track, and select the Flex parameter in the Region inspector for that region. For details, see Flex Time algorithms and parameters in Logic Pro.

The Quantize parameter in the Region inspector applies to whole regions. If you want different parts of a region to have different Quantize values, you can split the region, apply different quantize settings to different segments, and then join them using the Join command or the Glue tool.
