“K” is for Klopfgeist | Logic Pro

Klopfgeist is the software instrument that powers Logic’s Metronome function. For many of us, there’s not much more to think about with the Klopfgeist other than enabling the Metronome and hitting “record.” But there’s plenty to dig into with our trusty and unwavering click. Whether it be for utility or creativity.

The best translation of Klopfgeist I have seen is “rapping spirit”.

Create MIDI aliases in the Logic Pro Tracks area — Apple Support

You can create an alias for a MIDI region or a folder. An alias is a reference to a region, and looks similar to a normal region in the Tracks area. If you alter the original region, all aliases of the region are similarly altered.

Select regions in the Logic Pro Tracks area — Apple Support

To perform some edits on regions, you must first select the regions. You can select one or multiple regions, select regions on different tracks, and quickly select muted regions, overlapped regions, or regions meeting other criteria. Selected regions appear brighter in the Tracks area than unselected regions.

NB When making aliases it is important to make sure that Preferences/General/Editing:’Select regions on track selection’ is not checked. That way you can select a region, select a track, move the playhead, and create the alias in that spot. It is probably a good idea to create a keyboard shortcut for the command ‘Toggle Select Regions on Track Selection’.

Use MIDI transform sets in Logic Pro — Apple Support

Depending on your needs, it may be worthwhile to create your own transform sets. These can be configured and saved as part of a project. (Doing this in your template projects makes your transform sets available in all projects.) Your transform sets are shown at the bottom of the Presets pop-up menu.

Transforms are project specific.

Show/Hide Tracks View — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Show/Hide Tracks View

Shows or hides the tracks view in the Main Window. This was added when the Live Loops features were added. The Main Window can show the tracks view, the live loops view, or both.

Available as a button in the control header. The control header is just above the rulers.

I have to remember that I can hide the transport display at the top of the main window.

Logic Pro Tracks area overview — Apple Support

The Tracks area is where you arrange regions to build your project. The Tracks area, located in the center of the Logic Pro main window, shows a visual representation of time moving from left to right. You build your project by arranging regions in rows, called tracks, that run from the beginning to the end of the Tracks area.
