  Attach Symbol: Accent

Add an accent mark to a note (or rest?) in a score. There are fine controls for what an accent does when played (increased MIDI velocity)

Add accents and other symbols to notes — Logic Pro X

The Part box includes symbols such as accents, fermatas, phrasing marks, bow markings, and others that apply to a single note, over which the symbol appears. (Trills are in a separate section).

MIDI Meaning settings — Logic Pro X

These settings determine if, and to what extent, the insertion of the listed symbols affects the MIDI playback of notes (that these symbols are attached to).

Move All Track Automation to Region ⌃⇧⌘↓ — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Move All Track Automation to Region    ⌃⇧⌘↓

I have no idea what I was babbling about last December. I couldn’t locate the command, or make it do anything that I wanted it to do. The command is, indeed, ‘Move All Track Automation to Region’, and it behaves exactly as expected. Automation points that occur within the region boundaries are moved to the region. Anything outside of the region(s) remains as track automation.

I don’t see automation move from track to region when I use this command. I am not sure if the automation is moved (copied to region, removed from track) or simply copied. Needs investigation.

Hmm. The command is now ‘Convert All Track Automation to Region’ located in the ‘Mix’ menu item.

Does not do what is expected…here is a tutorial from Logic Pro 9…music.tutsplus.com — Toby Pitman

Looping Track Automation in Logic Pro

In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to loop Track Automation in Logic Pro without having to physically copy it. This technique can be a real time saver as re-editing your copied Automation data for a loop means you have to re-copy the parts again! Not any more folks!!!

Region-based vs. track-based automation — Logic Pro X

Logic Pro offers two types of automation: track-based automation, and region-based automation. Track-based automation can be applied to the entire track, from the beginning to the end of your project. Region-based automation only applies to the specific region the automation parameters are connected to. With track-based automation, if you re-record, move or copy regions (either to another point on the same track, or to another track) the automation data remains tied to the initial point on the track in which it was created. With region-based automation, if you re-record the region, the automation is lost; if you move or copy the region (either to another point on the same track, or to another track) the automation remains with the region. Region-based automation is particularly useful when you are automating instrument parameters.

  Attach Symbol: Flageolet

Small circle (un-filled) above a note in a score. I am not at all familiar with this notation.

Mathematical models of flageolet harmonics on stringed instruments — ScienceDirect

Flageolet is a common technique to elicit harmonics on stringed instruments like guitars, pianos, and the violin family: the bowed or plucked string is subdivided by a slight touch of the finger. The paper discusses appropriate linear wave equations which model the flageolet phenomenon. The standard second order wave equation fails, because the resulting Dirichlet boundary condition at the finger uncouples the two parts of the string and produces tones different from the flageolet. We include and discuss fourth order corrections, due to string stiffness, as a possible source for the flageolet phenomenon.

  Go to Marker Number 4

I suspect that some people will use markers and know which one they want by ordinal position.

I don’t see the value of it. Good to know that I can.

Markers overview — Logic Pro X

When Show Advanced Tools is selected in the Advanced preferences pane, you can use markers to tag different parts of a project, and quickly select the parts for playback, arranging, and editing. Markers can help you organize your project, and also act as storage areas for locator positions.
