Force Interpretation ⌃⇧I – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

Clear pick finger – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Clear pick finger

Removes the ‘pick finger’ notation on the score. There is a complete lack of information about pick fingers, other than the indicators P I M A C – the “names” of the fingers.

A large amount of assumed knowledge.

The Spanish Fingering System – dummies

In traditional guitar notation, the letters p, i, m, and a are used to refer to the fingers on the picking hand. Taken from the Spanish language, here’s what the letters represent:

Force Syncopation ⌃⇧Y – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Force Syncopation  ⌃⇧Y

I can’t explain it any better than the documentation does.

Change note syncopation and interpretation in the Logic Pro Score Editor – Apple Support

By default, note syncopation and interpretation match the settings chosen in the Region inspector. You can change interpretation settings for individual notes to improve readability.

Logic Pro Syncopation region parameter – Apple Support

Syncopation involves rhythmic patterns that go against the normal rhythm as defined by the time signature. The Syncopation setting helps you produce a cleaner-looking score by displaying syncopated notes with fewer ties or subdivisions.

If Syncopation is turned on, each note is displayed graphically as a single note when possible (rather than as several tied notes), regardless of its rhythmic position. If it can’t be displayed as a single note, the note is divided into the minimum possible number of notes, connected by ties. In some cases, the display of syncopated notes also depends on the Max Dots setting—see Logic Pro Max Dots region parameter.

Independent Grace – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Independent Grace

Makes a note on the score an independent grace note. When scoring music we don’t worry about the actual performance – that’s the job of the musician. When an automaton interprets a score it needs to know the rules for performance.

Make the rules clear so the music can playback in the expected manner.

Use independent notes in the Logic Pro Score Editor – Apple Support

Independent Grace: The note is displayed as a single (independent) grace note.
