Toggle Fix Value – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Toggle Fix Value

Toggle the use of fixed value when creating steps.

Create steps in the Step Editor in Logic Pro – Apple Support

You can assign a fixed value when creating event steps. When enabled, the Fix Value item in the Lane Set pop-up menu prevents any event value from being altered with the Pointer or Pencil tool.

 It might be useful to read some of the Logic Pro 9 manual describing the Hyper Editor (Step Editor in X) for a discussion of ‘fix value’ and other nuanced behaviors…

Logic Pro 9 User Manual: Creating and Editing Events in the Hyper Editor

You can also assign a fixed value when creating events. The Fix Value checkbox in the Inspector, when selected, prevents any event value from being altered with the Pointer or Pencil tool.

 

Set Step Color by Row Color – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Set Step Color by Row Color

Set the color of the selected step to the color of the row. Akin to setting region colors according to track colors.

Everything old is new again. Step Sequencing. NB each cell in a sequence can be a sequencer.

Logic Pro Step Sequencer overview – Apple Support

Each pattern region or cell functions as an independent step sequencer, with its own configuration and settings. You can copy and move pattern regions like other regions in the Tracks area, while pattern cells can be copied, moved, triggered, and queued like other Live Loops cells. You can modify pattern region and cell parameters in the Region inspector or Cell inspector, respectively.

Trim Note End to Selected (Force Legato)        ⌘3⃣

Create Multiple Lanes… – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Create Multiple Lanes…

I quoted the help document below.

I keep thinking back to Vision in the 1990s and how I wouldn’t even consider Notator…I think I may have missed out on a true power tool.

⇧ SHIFT  –  ⌃ CONTROL  –  ⌥ OPTION  –  ⌘ COMMAND

Create lanes – Logic Pro X

 

Create lanes for all event types in a region
Select the region.

Choose Lanes > Create Multiple Lanes (or use the corresponding key command).

In the dialog that appears, click the All button to confirm that you want to create lanes for all types of events in the region.

Tip: It’s a good idea to create a new Lane Set before creating a group of new lanes. For more information, see Use Lane Sets.

Use Lane Sets – Logic Pro X

You can store a combination of lanes as a Lane Set. When a Lane Set is saved, the vertical zoom setting of the Step Editor is stored. You can save as many Lane Sets as required in each project.

Set Nudge Value to Step Input – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Set Nudge Value to Step Input

In the Step Editor menus as well as in the dropdown in the Toolbar – Nudge Value. Changes the nudge value to the Step Input value. Makes it easy to move events by steps. If the Step Editor has lanes with different divisions (see reference to the grid) this would be quite useful.

“Step Input” is the value selected for events in the “Step Input Keyboard”. You can change that value in the “Step Input Keyboard” window – click on the value or use keys (1/16th is ‘5’). You can also set the value using the “Set Division Value” commands.

 Change the grid and step display – Logic Pro X

 

The Grid parameter in the Lane inspector is important when creating event steps. When you create new events, they’re automatically added at grid positions set by the Grid parameter. This makes it easy to create a drum pattern with 4 divisions on one lane, 8 divisions on another lane, and 16 divisions on another lane—assigned to kick, snare, and hi-hat sounds, for example.
