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.

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

  Quantize 1/8 Swing D

Quantize the MIDI playback of the selected region.

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.

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

  Fix Displayed Note Positions

We need to understand “display quantization”. It means what I think it means, but I had to go hunting in the documentation to confirm. Moves displayed notes to their “proper” positions. “Set the visual quantization value” describes what is going on, and why we might need it.

Quantize the timing of notes in the Logic Pro Score Editor – Apple Support

You can quantize, or automatically correct, the timing of individual MIDI notes in the Score Editor. This is useful when regions in the track contain the right notes, but are not perfectly in time with the project. When you quantize the timing, items are adjusted to the selected note value. You can quantize the timing of regions with drums, single-note instruments, and chordal or polyphonic instruments.

 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 1/16 Swing C – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Quantize 1/16 Swing C

Quantize the region on sixteenth notes with swing pattern C. As always the precision of computers can “help” us create very well aligned music. It doesn’t sound natural. Most humans can’t perform with such precision. The quantize commands can be used to “help” the  computer be less precise (in a very precise way) or more human.

Sometimes quantization is referred to as “humanization”…so not.

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.

  

Quantize 1/16 Note – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Quantize 1/16 Note

Make the grid sixteenth notes. This is usually pretty decent for slow-moving music. Sort of like auto-tune for “fat fingers”.

Logic Pro X: Quantize regions

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.

Logic Pro Quantize parameter values – Apple Support

Normal quantization: The 1/1-Note, 1/2-Note, 1/4-Note, 1/8-Note, 1/16-Note, 1/32-Note, and 1/64-Note settings quantize the MIDI region to the equivalent note value.

 

Quantize 1/8 & 1/8 Triplet – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Quantize 1/8 & 1/8 Triplet

Quantize the selected audio or MIDI regions to an eighth-note resolution.

  Quantize 1/16 Swing E

The fine art of humanizing machine-generated musical sounds. 

Logic Pro Quantize parameter values – Apple Support

You can quantize selected audio or MIDI regions (including a mixed region selection) using the Quantize parameter in the Region inspector. This parameter determines the division of the quantization grid.

  Set Division Value to 1/8 Triplet (1/12)

Sets the MIDI quantization to an eighth-note triplet, effectively 1/12 of a bar with regard to timing.

Quantize Selected Events Q ⌘:6: – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  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.

Advanced Quantization Parameters – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  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.

Logic Pro | F is For Flex and Feel

Logic Pro | F is For Flex and Feel:

Finding the right feel for our music is an incredibly important part of getting it to sound right. Fortunately, Logic has a lot of tools to help us control, correct, and capture the feel of our performances. Among the tools in our toolbox are Fex Time, and the ability to make custom groove templates.
