Logic Pro Step Sequencer overview — Apple Support

Step Sequencer is inspired by classic hardware step sequencers that have rows of configurable switches or knobs used to generate repeating musical patterns. In Step Sequencer, you create patterns by editing multifunctional steps in the step grid. Each row controls either a sound (which can be a drum kit piece, a note on an instrument, or a range of notes) or an automation parameter (letting you create automation changes over time in the pattern). Each step represents a definable length of musical time–by default, steps are of equal length, but you can change the length for individual rows or steps. You can adjust a wide range of parameters for individual steps, including velocity, pitch, gate time, and more; and edit pattern and row settings including pattern length, row loop start and end points, playback position, and rotation.

Move Movie Region to Playhead — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Move Movie Region to Playhead

Moves the movie region (including audio if it has been imported) to the current playhead position.

I don’t work with movies at all. I do watch tutorial videos all the time. Maybe I should create Logic projects for some of my videos so I can work through the tutorial. Something to explore.

Add a movie to your Logic Pro project — Apple Support

You can view a QuickTime movie file synchronously with your project, making film and TV scoring quick and easy. Although you can’t record or edit video directly in Logic Pro, you can replace the soundtrack of a video file with music, Foley, and dialogue arranged in your project.

Save as Zoom 2 ⌃⌥⇧⌘2 — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Save as Zoom 2 ⌃⌥⇧⌘2

You can save up to three zoom settings that can be recalled with a command key.

You can use the Zoom tool to zoom in on portions of the display. Each successive Zoom is saved as a list (like breadcrumbs) and you can backtrack zoom settings by clicking the Zoom tool (as opposed to dragging a selection area).

My use of Zoom tools is rudimentary. I use a large display. This is all going to change as I learn to use my laptop for in-depth work. The difference between a 27 inch display and a 13 inch display can seem daunting.

Zoom Logic Pro windows — Apple Support

When you zoom in or out, the top-left (and selected) event or region remains in the visible area of the screen. If no selected region or event is visible, zooming is centered around the playhead. If the playhead isn’t visible, the current center of the window is retained.

You can store three different zoom settings for each window using the Save as Zoom 1–3 key commands. Use the Recall Zoom 1–3 key commands to recall your zoomed settings. These commands only apply to the active window or window area.
