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

  Fix Displayed Note Positions and Durations

When MIDI regions are quantized it can have an effect on the notes as displayed in a score. The notes will be played according to the quantized rhythm, with the displayed notes representing things differently.

Swing (jazz performance style) – Wikipedia

In music, the term swing has two main uses. Colloquially, it is used to describe the propulsive quality or “feel” of a rhythm, especially when the music prompts a visceral response such as foot-tapping or head-nodding (see pulse). This sense can also be called “groove”.

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.
