Reset Individual Track Zoom ⌃⌥⌘⌫ — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Reset Individual Track Zoom    ⌃⌥⌘⌫

I *really* need to practice track zooming (display zooming in general) on the 13-inch laptop. I got spoiled by the large screen on the iMac, and never have bothered to really try working with smaller screens (and possibly multiple screens).

First thing to learn is ‘Toggle Zoom Focused Track or Row ⌃Z’ along with ‘Reset Individual Track Zoom’. Add these as well

Zoom tracks in Logic Pro — Apple Support

In the Tracks area, tracks can be zoomed using the Tracks area zoom controls (and Waveform Zoom slider) and also zoomed independently. When a window is first opened, there is a default zoom setting that provides a compromise between optimal visibility and working space in the Tracks area.

16 Considerations for Naming New Instrument Presets — Pro Audio Files

It is human nature to categorize the world in order to make sense of things, and to perhaps mitigate the overwhelming variety that exists in all facets of our environment. Anyone that studies a subject in-depth will need to implement (and in some cases invent) logical ways to compartmentalize concepts in order to better understand the ideas, not only in isolation but as they relate to the larger body of knowledge. This process is not an easy one, and there can be pitfalls concerning things that fall into grey areas or potentially unique items that may not fit into any established category.

Select Tracks and Set Default Region/Cell Parameters by Region/Cell/Folder — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Select Tracks and Set Default Region/Cell Parameters by Region/Cell/Folder

It isn’t clear what this command actually does. I selected a number of regions on separate tracks. I issued the command. The Region inspector now reads “Audio Defaults”. Nothing has changed on any of the tracks (now all selected) or any of the regions.

If no region is selected, the upper line of the Region inspector displays the text Default Settings. The region parameter settings displayed are applied to newly recorded regions as realtime playback settings.

The human interface to a step sequencer can be daunting. The days of patch-cords are gone, as are toggle switches. Programming the sequencers, and performing with them, is an entirely new world.

Launchpad anyone?

Logic Pro Step Sequencer overview — Apple Support

Step Sequencer is inspired by classic hardware step sequencers that have rows of configurable switches or knobs used to generate repeating musical patterns. In Step Sequencer, you create patterns by editing multifunctional steps in the step grid. Each row controls either a sound (which can be a drum kit piece, a note on an instrument, or a range of notes) or an automation parameter (letting you create automation changes over time in the pattern). Each step represents a definable length of musical time–by default, steps are of equal length, but you can change the length for individual rows or steps. You can adjust a wide range of parameters for individual steps, including velocity, pitch, gate time, and more; and edit pattern and row settings including pattern length, row loop start and end points, playback position, and rotation.
