Rest ˽ – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Rest    ˽

It’s a great idea to rest. When using the Step Input keyboard you insert a rest by pressing the space bar. The rest will be chosen by the note value selected in the upper part of the keyboard.

Use step input recording techniques – Logic Pro X

Step input allows you to insert MIDI notes when you’re not recording in real time. You can use step input to create note runs that may be too fast for you to play or to replicate sheet music that’s too difficult for you to play.

Octave 2 – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Octave 2

Switch the Step Input keyboard focus to octave 2 (C2). The Step Input keyboard has octaves 0 through 7 with 7 additional semi-tones below C0. Not quite a Bosendorfer Imperial Grand (97 keys) but close. Lowest note on a traditional piano would be ‘A-1’, highest ‘C7’.

Range is ‘F-1’ to ‘B7’.

Octave + 2 ⇧X – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Octave + 2 ⇧X

Move the Step Input keyboard focus up 2 octaves. This command does not appear to be documented, but moving a single octave is – the X without SHIFT.

The same is true for the Musical Typing keyboard.

The current octave is not synchronized between the Step Input keyboard and the Musical Typing keyboard.

To move down or up by octaves: Press Z or X.

Note “F” F – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Note “F”    F

Don’t be fooled. Note “F” is the only “Note” command that actually matches. The “note” keys are arranged as an octave on a piano keyboard. The keys are the same in the ‘Step Input’ keyboard and the ‘Musical Typing’ keyboard. Typing a note key adjusts the octave on the “piano keyboard” so the note is at the center of the octave. You can change the octave by clicking on one of the piano keys in the window. Very handy.

Octave – 2 ⇧Z – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Octave - 2 ⇧Z

Move the “selected” octave down 2. I’m not really sure how this is useful unless it is because it makes it easier to see the location of keys on the keyboard.

I am more likely to be using the “Musical Typing” keyboard.
