Change Gain… ⌃G — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Change Gain…   ⌃G

You can adjust the gain of the audio file, destructively. I use this command whenever I get an audio file that has a maximum gain of 0.0 dB — Logic can’t (or won’t) manipulate this audio in a non-destructive fashion, so I reduce it by .1 dB.

The key command is shared with “Normalize Region Gain” which I use all the time to adjust tracks to have peak values of -9 to -6 dB. The only time this would be counter-productive is when I get multi-tracks of a live performance. In these cases the peaks are performance coordinated. Use the Gain plugin across every track to lower the gain of everything equally — turn down the recording.
