Note “G” G — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Note “G”   G

In the past I claimed that the “F” key was the only key on the Musical Typing Keyboard that was “true”. The G key will also insert a note that is a G — my bad.

I keep forgetting that if I want to play in some notes to record, or try out an instrument, that I can bring up the Musical Typing Keyboard — ⌘K — and play some notes.

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.


Crop Regions outside Locators or Marquee Selection ⌘\ ⌘3⃣ — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Crop Regions outside Locators or Marquee Selection ⌘\  ⌘3⃣

undocumented command. There are many fine points about regions and how to work with them. They are only documented in the Logic Pro 9 manuals. Time to read Chapter 13 of the Logic Pro 9 manual.

Logic Pro 9 User Manual: Selecting Regions

This action removes all unselected areas from regions which are partly marquee-selected.

Logic Pro 9 User Manual: Creating Your Arrangement

Once you have added your audio and MIDI regions to the Arrange area, you can edit and reorganize them to create an overall arrangement, or project. Most arranging and editing techniques work identically for both audio and MIDI regions. Apple Loops are also handled in a similar fashion. Where handling differs, variations are pointed out in the appropriate sections of this chapter. Note that all operations described with a pluralized heading (regions, for example), apply to one or more selected region(s).

  Page Right ↘

Scroll the page in the score to the far right (think swipe left) using the ‘end’ key on the extended keyboard. Page Left with the ‘home’ key. Essentially go to the beginning (home) or end (end) of the score. Sometimes the terminology confuses me. I am used to full-page displays that fit completely into the window. Just my assumptions.

Notation overview — Logic Pro X

You can view MIDI regions in software instrument (and external MIDI instrument) tracks as music notation in the Score Editor. Notes and other musical events are displayed as standard notation, along with common symbols such as time and key signature, bar lines, and clef signs. You can add and edit notes, add sustain pedal markings and other symbols, and print the score.

  Previous Plug-in Setting

I thought this was a duplicate — “Previous Plug-in Setting or EXS Instrument” — but no, this is a separate command. This command is in the plug-in window menu. It is used to recall the previous (in the list) plug-in setting.

Show/Hide Browsers F — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Show/Hide Browsers    F

Opens and closes the audio browsers side of the main screen. Project Audio, Media, All Files. Like a tiny Finder interface, but nothing like the Finder at all.

In the beginning I would use the Finder to locate files and them drag them into the Tracks area. This works, but doesn’t allow the kind of control that I get using the All Files browser. These days I use All Files and move audio to tracks in a more organized way.

Logic Pro main window interface — Logic Pro X

You create and play projects in the Logic Pro main window. The main window is organized into different areas to help you focus on different aspects of your project, such as recording, arranging, and mixing. Buttons in the control bar show or hide different areas of the app.
