You can add a channel strip to, or remove a channel strip from, single or multiple groups. You can also temporarily disable all group parameter links—applying a Group Clutch—to change the volume of an individual channel strip, for example.

Hiding groups hides channels in the mixer, and associated tracks in the Main Window.

Revert to Saved Screenset — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Revert to Saved Screenset

Returns the screen to the original state of a saved (locked) screenset. This is an easy way to change a screenset back to the save (locked) state.

If you don’t have the command assigned to a key press you revert a screenset by selecting the screenset (keys 1-9 and more) or by selecting the screenset from the menubar.

Select Members of Group 6 — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Select Members of Group 6

Select all of the channels/tracks that are members of group 6.

Groups are useful. I would start by making sure that I have the Groups Inspector available as a separate window. I would name all of my groups with something meaningful. I would select members of a group by clicking on the group name and using the gear menu to select the members.

The Group tool on the MCU is a good way to perform the functions of the Group window. The Group number display is lacking, having only two positions, so we get G1, G2, … G9, G1…..G1, G2 and so on. If the group is named then the first 10 characters of the name are displayed in the information panel.

You use the Groups inspector to define the behavior of each Mixer group. The Groups inspector appears in the Track inspector when one or more groups have been created, and it can be opened as a floating window as well. It contains the following settings:

Shuttle Forward — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Shuttle Forward

Move the playhead forward — wind the “tape” forward. I have used the shuttle feature in my video players on the Mac, but never tried it in Logic.

I need to spend a session or two using the transport controls on the screen, and on the X-Touch. Things I have simply never considered, or have forgotten about from my days of fiddling with tape recorders .

Shuttle Rewind and Shuttle Forward: Repeated key presses increase the winding speed. Repeated presses of the opposing shuttle key slow down the shuttle speed, and eventually change the winding direction. Shuttle disables Cycle mode. Shuttling is halted by the Stop command.
