Change Gain… ⌃G — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Change Gain…   ⌃G

You can adjust the gain of the audio file, destructively. I use this command whenever I get an audio file that has a maximum gain of 0.0 dB — Logic can’t (or won’t) manipulate this audio in a non-destructive fashion, so I reduce it by .1 dB.

The key command is shared with “Normalize Region Gain” which I use all the time to adjust tracks to have peak values of -9 to -6 dB. The only time this would be counter-productive is when I get multi-tracks of a live performance. In these cases the peaks are performance coordinated. Use the Gain plugin across every track to lower the gain of everything equally — turn down the recording.


Use output channel strips — Logic Pro X

Use output channel strips — Logic Pro X

By default, a project contains one output channel strip that takes the signal from all the individual tracks in the project. You add additional output channel strips to assign submixes, or to prevent them from being controlled by the master channel strip.

Today seems like a good day to learn how output channels really work. Also time to learn about Solo and the various ways it looks. Solo Lock and Solo Safe become interesting.
