Paste Channel Strip Setting ⌥⌘V — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Paste Channel Strip Setting    ⌥⌘V

Useful when you want the same settings on another channel. I use this to setup mixes of live band recordings. Not so much if I am mixing with tracks all assigned to appropriate busses. If I like the channel strip setting so much I have been know to save it and use the Settings menu to set the channel up.


Snap Mode: Smart — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Snap Mode: Smart

Changing the Snap mode can improve your workflow. I think I have turned it off (little button at left of Snap menu) once in 3 years, just to see what it does. Dragging and sliding things is kind of difficult to do depending on screen real estate. I usually move audio by “nudging” which gives me control over direction, and amount of movement. Set the nudge value, Option-click left or right arrow key. Well controlled. Super-fine adjustment.

Snap items to the grid — Logic Pro X:

The Tracks area includes a grid that helps you align regions, automation points, and other items with the time divisions in the ruler. When you perform any of the following actions, the items move according to the current Snap value:

Moving and resizing regions

Moving the playhead

Adjusting the cycle region

Dragging loops to the Tracks area

Moving automation points in automation curves

Move regions in the Tracks area — Logic Pro X:

You can also nudge regions (move them in small increments) left or right using key commands. To nudge regions, you first set the nudge value, then move selected regions by this value. Alternatively, you can nudge regions by a set value.


Flex Tool X — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Flex Tool    X

I have not enjoyed the experience of editing audio to correct for timing inconsistencies. Everything I have seen or heard about editing drums make it seem like a nightmare. The Flex Tool looks like it makes editing simple and straightforward. Using Groups with editing enabled seems like it would make that a lot easier.

This makes me wonder about quantizing the audio files? Does that do something “interesting”?

Time stretch using the Flex tool — Logic Pro X:

The Flex tool gives you quick access to basic Flex Time editing functionality, without having to turn on Flex view. When you click a region with the Flex tool for the first time, a transient detection process is performed on the audio material and the most suitable flex algorithm is chosen.


Show/Hide Help Tags — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Show/Hide Help Tags

Displays handy pop-up help when you move the cursor over buttons, tools, etc.

It can get pretty annoying if it is on all of the time, but I do tend to turn it on when working in an area that I am not completely familiar with (all of Logic?)

I still think “Smart Help” in Logic Remote is a great idea, even if a bit distracting. Like Help Tags the iPad brings up the relevant page in the Logic help files.

I found the “Quick Help Follows Pointer” control and assigned a keyboard command to it. When Quick Help is active, and you issue the command, the help will show up in the Inspector area instead of presenting a yellow bubble. The Quick Help inspector can be dragged out to give a floating help window. I need test Quick Help with Screensets.

The Quick Help function/window is global. The state of Quick Help persists across all Screensets.

How to get help — Logic Pro X:

Logic Pro provides several ways for you to get answers to questions, learn about controls and functions while you’re working, and view detailed information about all aspects of the application. You can also view information directly in the application using the Quick Help feature.
