  Waveform Vertical Zoom x 8

Normally I use the control buttons at the top of the tracks area — waveform, width, height. I would probably have a better experience if I used the keyboard commands to size the region and adjust the waveform size.

Logic Pro X: Change the waveform display:

You can switch the waveform from its usual view to one that shows the structure of the recorded digital data. This view is useful when you are eliminating clicks and pops from your recordings, for example.

I’m not sure we should show people the “misguided” view of digital samples over time, but it is kind of interesting to look at it.

Open Tempo Operations… — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Open Tempo Operations…

Finely tuned control over tempo curves. This appears to be a much more controlled way to “draw” tempo changes, and certainly makes sense if you don’t want abrupt tempo changes.

Tempo Operations overview — Logic Pro X:

You use Tempo Operations to create tempo changes, and edit existing tempo changes. The window automatically displays the area you’ve selected for editing. Changes are displayed graphically in real time, as the tempo curve is processed, so you can see the results of your edits.
