Apply Region Tempo to Project Tempo: Applies the tempo of the selected region to the project tempo. In the Apply Region Tempo to Project Tempo dialog you can select additional options:

  • Align downbeat to nearest project downbeat: Aligns the region downbeat to the nearest downbeat in the project, regardless of Project Tempo mode.
  • Maintain relative positions of all other regions: When selected, maintains the temporal relationship between regions in the project when applying the region tempo to the project tempo. This can be particularly useful in Adapt mode.

Toggle Metronome Click – Smart Tempo Editor M – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Toggle Metronome Click - Smart Tempo Editor    M

Turn the metronome click on or off. No need to click that button with the pointer/cursor sitting over it.

Clicking with a mouse is probably not sensible to lots of people. Trackpad is far more likely to be used by beginners. Need to use terms like position the cursor/pointer instead of move the mouse.

Tempo Track: Replace By Average – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Tempo Track: Replace By Average

Straightforward definition. If I was concerned about the timing of music I would certainly pay more attention to tempo.

Add and edit tempo points – Logic Pro X

Using this function, the selected tempo points are replaced by their average value (the weighted average) so that the length (duration) of the performance is maintained.

 

 Tempo track overview – Logic Pro X

In the Tempo track, tempo changes are represented by tempo points. You create tempo changes by adding tempo points and editing their values. You can expand the Tempo track to give yourself more room to work, and adjust the range of values for the Tempo track.

Smart Tempo overview – Logic Pro X

 

Smart Tempo brings powerful new tempo analysis and editing capabilities to Logic Pro. With Smart Tempo you can record a performance without the metronome and have Logic Pro adapt the project tempo to match the tempo of the recording, or keep the project tempo and flex the recording to match it. Smart Tempo also makes it easy to create remixes using audio files and MIDI regions with different tempos that all conform to the project tempo, or adapt the project tempo to the tempo of an imported audio file or MIDI region.
