Select Project 18 — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Select Project 18

Nope — I won’t have 18 projects open. Common wisdom is that having more than one project open at a time can lead to project corruption.

This could be a holdover from the early versions of Logic where projects were called “songs”, and people using Logic for playback in peformances would have many songs open, strictly for playback.

The current world has MainStage for playback purposes. A far better tool for backing tracks or, possibly, programmatic audio.

There is no documentation in user manuals for Logic 7, 8, 9, or 10.

Independent Grace — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Independent Grace

Makes a note on the score an independent grace note. When scoring music we don’t worry about the actual performance — that’s the job of the musician. When an automaton interprets a score it needs to know the rules for performance.

Make the rules clear so the music can playback in the expected manner.

Use independent notes in the Logic Pro Score Editor — Apple Support

Independent Grace: The note is displayed as a single (independent) grace note.

Slip Left by Nudge Value ⌃⌥← — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Slip Left by Nudge Value    ⌃⌥←

Interesting ways to move things in the regions. I would compare it to a slide rule movement. Slipping shouldn’t be confused with rotating, which is also possible.

Move regions in the Logic Pro Tracks area — Apple Support

You can slip regions, which moves the content of the region left or right by the nudge value without moving the boundaries of the region. The content effectively moves inside the region, which remains stationary. Slipping a region is possible only when the source content exceeds the length of the region by the amount you slip (or greater).

Show Movie in Finder — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Show Movie in Finder

Open a Finder window showing the current movie file. The menu command is File>Movie>Show in Finder.

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.
