New Track with Next Channel / MIDI Channel ⌃↩
Create a new track using the next channel. Increments MIDI channel by 1. Creates new audio and software instrument channels as well.
I don’t get to create tracks in this way, being led by my mixing work, and possibly misled by workflows I have learned.
On the X-Touch the key sequence is SHIFT+OPTION SELECT where SELECT is one of the 8 channels. Creates a new channel to the right of the selected channel.
Something to experiment with.
Create tracks using existing channel strips in Logic Pro — Apple Support
This command creates a new track below the selected track, and assigns the next channel strip to it. If no next channel strip exists, one is created automatically.
