Logic Pro Live Loops overview — Apple Support

Live Loops lets you arrange and play with musical ideas in real time in a grid of cells, each containing a musical phrase or loop. You can start and stop cells freely while keeping everything in sync with the beat and the project tempo. Each grid row uses the same signal routing and channel strip settings as the adjacent track in the Tracks area. Cells in grid columns, called scenes, can be triggered together to act as musical sections. An extensive set of parameters gives you full control over playback, recording, and looping, so you can spontaneously take your music in new directions.

Nudge Region/Event Position Left by 1/2 SMPTE Frame — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Nudge Region/Event Position Left by 1/2 SMPTE Frame

Move the event one half frame to the left. The amount of time that is shifted is dependent on the SMPTE frame rate. I am always entertained when I see and hear videos that are remarkably well aligned…

Logic Pro soundtracks overview — Apple Support

QuickTime video is embedded with an internal SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) timecode. SMPTE timecode is an absolute timecode that covers a 24-hour period. It displays hours, minutes, seconds, frames, and subframes. Logic Pro recognizes SMPTE timecode and converts it to MTC (MIDI Time Code). MTC is the MIDI equivalent of SMPTE timecode. Different video frame rates are automatically interpreted by Logic Pro. See MTC interpretation in Logic Pro.

By default, note syncopation and interpretation match the settings chosen in the Region inspector. You can change interpretation settings for individual notes to improve readability.

Logic Pro Syncopation region parameter — Apple Support

Syncopation involves rhythmic patterns that go against the normal rhythm as defined by the time signature. The Syncopation setting helps you produce a cleaner-looking score by displaying syncopated notes with fewer ties or subdivisions.

If Syncopation is turned on, each note is displayed graphically as a single note when possible (rather than as several tied notes), regardless of its rhythmic position. If it can’t be displayed as a single note, the note is divided into the minimum possible number of notes, connected by ties. In some cases, the display of syncopated notes also depends on the Max Dots setting—see Logic Pro Max Dots region parameter.
