Set Global Edit Mode to Gate ⌃⌥G — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Set Global Edit Mode to Gate   ⌃⌥G

Sets the edit mode for all of the rows. Just like selecting ‘Gate’ from the menu bar control.

I really need to re-think my idea of step sequencing. Programming a sequencer using visual tools sparks lots of ideas.

Gate: Drag vertically in the step to set the Gate value as a percentage of the step. The Gate value shortens the note length to less than the duration of the step.

The Edit Mode selector in the Step Sequencer menu bar controls the edit mode for all rows in the pattern. Step On/Off mode is always available on the left-side button on the selector. You can choose other edit modes from the menu on the right side of the selector. The chosen edit mode appears on the right-side button. Edit modes include the following:

Decrement Loop End for Row ⌥⌘- — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Decrement Loop End for Row ⌥⌘-

Shorten the length of the loop. This command will wait for me to dive in to step sequencing again.

Using edit modes, you can control different attributes of the note or event triggered by a step. Some edit modes apply to only one row type, while others are common to both types. For note rows, you can change the velocity, pitch, gate time, number of note repetitions in a step, and other attributes. For automation rows, you can change the value of the automated parameter. Edit modes common to both row types include skipping and tying steps, changing the loop start and end point, and changing the step rate

Remap To Root Notes — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Remap To Root Notes

I was not born into an era where samplers are “free, fast, and easy”. I decided I didn’t need to spend the $2000+ for a very finicky computer that could only record 10 second clips. Silly me.

Today I would pull out a MacBook Air, attach an audio interface, and do the most amazing sampling, all for less than $2000, and with an interface that is indescribably different.

I’m still not going to jump into an MPCX Professional 😉

Someday when I sample.

Import Region Information ⌃I — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Import Region Information    ⌃I

Imports the region information. I’m not really clear about where or when I would actually use this.

  1. In Logic Pro, add the audio file to another project.
  2. Select the audio file in the Project Audio Browser.
  3. Choose Audio File > Import Region Information from the Project Audio Browser menu bar.

The saved region information for that audio file is displayed in the Project Audio Browser and can be used in the current project.

Next Sampler Instrument — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Next Sampler Instrument

Switch to the next Sampler Instrument. The Sampler is opaque to me. Some day I may pursue learning about sampling, and probably compare using Sampler or Alchemy for working with samples.

Load and save instruments in Sampler — Apple Support

A sampler instrument is the file type that is loaded into Sampler with the plug-in Settings pop-up menu. When you choose a sampler instrument, the associated audio files are automatically located on the hard disk (or disks) and are loaded into your computer’s RAM.
