New Transformer — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  New Transformer

Uncomplicated. Of course what to do with a transformer object is not at all clear to me at this time. I think that I might be able to make a “chord” player or something similar.

Transformer objects overview — Logic Pro X:

You can use a transformer object to select, filter, and alter MIDI events in real time. Transformers can also process meta events, as long as they aren’t the meta events that affect transformers. These particular meta events change the transformer, rather than being processed by it. For more information, see Use meta events to control condition and operation values.


Velocity 64 (mp) N — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Velocity 64 (mp)    N

Certainly a different way to “chord keys”.

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.

To set the velocity of the inserted note: Click the Velocity buttons.

There are eight velocity values—represented by the traditional volume indicators ppp, pp, p, mp, mf, f, ff, and fff. These correspond to MIDI velocity values 16, 32, 48, 64, 80, 96, 112, and 127, respectively.

Set Smart Tempo Mode to Keep — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Set Smart Tempo Mode to Keep

Keep Project Tempo: Maintains the project tempo when you record audio or MIDI, or when you import audio files. Audio regions for which the Flex & Follow parameter is not set to Off conform to the project tempo. Choose this mode to work as in previous versions of Logic Pro.

Smart Tempo overview — Logic Pro X:

Smart Tempo brings powerful new tempo analysis and editing capabilities to Logic Pro. With Smart Tempo you can record a performance without the metronome and have Logic Pro adapt the project tempo to match the tempo of the recording, or keep the project tempo and flex the recording to match it. Smart Tempo also makes it easy to create remixes using audio files and MIDI regions with different tempos that all conform to the project tempo, or adapt the project tempo to the tempo of an imported audio file or MIDI region.
