Logic Pro | F is For Flex and Feel

Logic Pro | F is For Flex and Feel:

Finding the right feel for our music is an incredibly important part of getting it to sound right. Fortunately, Logic has a lot of tools to help us control, correct, and capture the feel of our performances. Among the tools in our toolbox are Fex Time, and the ability to make custom groove templates.

Show/Hide Help Tags — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Show/Hide Help Tags

Displays handy pop-up help when you move the cursor over buttons, tools, etc.

It can get pretty annoying if it is on all of the time, but I do tend to turn it on when working in an area that I am not completely familiar with (all of Logic?)

I still think “Smart Help” in Logic Remote is a great idea, even if a bit distracting. Like Help Tags the iPad brings up the relevant page in the Logic help files.

I found the “Quick Help Follows Pointer” control and assigned a keyboard command to it. When Quick Help is active, and you issue the command, the help will show up in the Inspector area instead of presenting a yellow bubble. The Quick Help inspector can be dragged out to give a floating help window. I need test Quick Help with Screensets.

The Quick Help function/window is global. The state of Quick Help persists across all Screensets.

How to get help — Logic Pro X:

Logic Pro provides several ways for you to get answers to questions, learn about controls and functions while you’re working, and view detailed information about all aspects of the application. You can also view information directly in the application using the Quick Help feature.


Waveform Vertical Zoom x 8 — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Waveform Vertical Zoom x 8

Normally I use the control buttons at the top of the tracks area — waveform, width, height. I would probably have a better experience if I used the keyboard commands to size the region and adjust the waveform size.
