Using the Sample Editor’s “Time and Pitch Machine”
You can use the “Time and Pitch Machine” to radically alter the time structure of audio files, including time compression or expansion, and pitch transposition. When changing the pitch, you can also correct any alteration of the formants—the vocal characteristics of the pitch-shifted audio. Pitch shifting without formant correction causes a phenomenon commonly known as the Mickey Mouse effect.
In the “Time and Pitch Machine,” time and pitch functions can be carried out together, or can be performed independently of one another.
The Tracks area is where you arrange regions to build your project. The Tracks area, located in the center of the Logic Pro main window, shows a visual representation of time moving from left to right. You build your project by arranging regions in rows, called tracks, that run from the beginning to the end of the Tracks area.
It’s like the roadmap.
A project is a Logic Pro document that contains all of your recordings, the location of media files you add, and all the changes you make. You start working in Logic Pro by creating a project, or opening an existing project. You can have multiple projects open at the same time, and transfer media and other data between them.
This is a good, brief overview of what a project is.
Logic Pro is a powerful, full-featured music app with all the tools you need to create professional-quality music productions. You can record, arrange, and edit audio and MIDI regions, add high-quality effects, mix your music in stereo or surround, and export the final mix in a variety of formats for distribution.
