Shift selected Zone(s)/Group(s) Right (Zones incl. Root Key) ⌥⇧→ — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Shift selected Zone(s)/Group(s) Right (Zones incl. Root Key)    ⌥⇧→

Changes the root key when moving a zone. Unchanged from the EXS24 in function. Visual interface changes abound.

Graphically edit Logic Pro Sampler zones and groups — Apple Support

You can edit zone and group parameters numerically in the Mapping pane zone view and group view. You can also graphically edit a number of zone and group parameters in the Mapping pane keyboard view and the Zone pane.

Rewind one 1/16 Note — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Rewind one 1/16 Note

Move the playhead (play position) backwards one sixteenth note. Useful when programming music from the keyboard.

A lot of the interface is muscle memory. We see an image, click on it, something happens. It’s hard to learn keyboard commands for doing lots of things because we don’t have an image on screen that we can associate to the keyboard action. It takes __lots__ of practice.

Kinesthetic learning…important concept.

Get started with project playback in Logic Pro — Apple Support

You can play back the project at any time to hear your latest changes. You control playback and navigate the project using the playhead, the ruler, and the transport buttons, located in the control bar.

Use transport keyboard shortcuts in Logic Pro — Apple Support

Some transport functions are available as key commands. Most of these transport key commands have no default assignment, and need to be assigned manually. See Assign key commands in Logic Pro.

Toggle Track On of all Tracks With Same Instrument of Project — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Toggle Track On of all Tracks With Same Instrument of Project

Tracks can be turned off to help control the consumption of resources. You can have multiple tracks that use the same instrument. When multiple tracks share an instrument they share the channel strip. Resource consumption is apparently controlled by the channel strips, at least for plugin loading and processing.

Using the ‘Toggle Track On’ of all tracks command will ensure that the channel strip resources will be deactivated or activated as needed.

In complex projects I would imagine that it is very easy to lose track of all of the tracks that might point to the same instrument.

I wonder what might be the harm in changing the ‘Toggle Track On – ⌥M’ keyboard shortcut to invoke the ‘Toggle Track On of all Tracks With Same Instrument of Project’ command. It certainly seems to perform the same function for an Audio track or an External MIDI track…

Turn off tracks in Logic Pro — Apple Support

When no other track is assigned to the same channel strip, turning off a track also saves processing power, because plug-ins on the channel strip are no longer processed. Turning a track off (or turning it back on) takes slightly longer than muting or unmuting the track, due to internal pre-processing. Unlike muting a track, turning off a track can not be automated.
