MIDI Out Toggle (option-O) — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX

Very little documentation about this one (and the counterpart MIDI In Toggle — option-I)

Wound up opening the Event List to see if anything happened when I toggled. Yes!

At the top right of the Event List are 2 buttons that look like MIDI DIN plugs — one with an “in” indicator, one with an “out” indicator. Toggling MIDI In and Out changes the state of these buttons.

From the glossary of the Logic Pro X User Manual.

“MIDI In button
The button used to turn on Step Input mode in the editors. See alsoStep Input function.”

Excerpt From: Apple Inc. “Logic Pro X User Guide.” iBooks.

Unfortunately there is no MIDI Out button description there. The roll-over help is informative, hard to get it to stand still so it can be copied.

MIDI Out Button (option-O)

Play MIDI events when they’re clicked, selected, or added.

MIDI In button (option-I)

Add notes without recording in real time — using your MIDI keyboard, for example

There are some very deep technical things that talk about using SYSEX faders in the environment to do extreme control of MIDI devices. Not ready to dive in there yet. The environment could provide a solution for resetting all of the lights on my X-Touch controller.

Forgot the MIDI In side of things…

The Marquee Tool — Logic Pro X

#LogicProX @logicproexpert @vandeviper

I keep trying to use the marquee tool to make things easier. I keep forgetting.

Watched this video — 6 Reasons to Use the Marquee Tool — made some notes.

My notes follow — better to read the article that accompanies the video.

2018-12-21 — watch

Make selection of region or file

Marquee at bottom of region — Set Marquee tool for command-click

Use to remove chunks of empty space as opposed to Strip Silence — highlight, press DEL

Split Region — double click on region at proper location for split

Select region and press play!

Create new track, highlight region, option-drag to new track

Click on automation line gives 4 nodes for simple drag

Selection-based processing — use marquee as opposed to ‘Split Region’ (cmd-T) on either end of the section of the region

Save as Template… Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX

I use this command a fair bit. I tweak my template when I learn new methods or choose a new primary tool. No need to map it to a keyboard command, but it’s good to know where it is in the File menu.

My template editing consists of creating a new project from the template, making changes, then doing a save as template using the original name (click on the template file name in the mini-Finder to get it filled in) and over-writing it.

Multiple busses. Multiple sends for monitor mixes.


Multi-Bus Template

Logic Pro X — EFFECTS SENDS — Post Pan, Post Fader, Pre Fader, Sends on Faders, Independent Pan — YouTube:

Logic Pro X — EFFECTS SENDS — Post Pan, Post Fader, Pre Fader, Sends on Faders, Independent Pan

For today’s work I reinforced my understanding of sends, faders, panning, and such for Logic.

Modified the multi-bus template to add HP1 and HP2 to bus labels for in-ear/monitor mixing.

I am reminded that Outputs (sends) are assigned to busses. Logic creates AUX channels (with strips) as destination for the busses. Keeping this distinction in mind helps understanding the audio path.
