Region Automation: Control Change 30 — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Region Automation: Control Change 30

Open/Set Region Automation to Control Change 30 (CC30). It is possible to write “programs” for MIDI devices that aren’t notes being played.

Object groups in the Logic Pro Environment — Apple Support

When building a virtual mixing desk or synthesizer layout in the Environment, you often need to work with large groups of fader objects that have the same size, regular spacing, or a similar definition.

To save time on the definition and alignment of these groups, you can choose (one or more) objects as prototypes (templates) by copying them into the Clipboard. (Choose Edit > Copy.) You can then apply certain characteristics of these template objects to selected objects.

Nudge Region/Event Length Right by Bar — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Nudge Region/Event Length Right by Bar

Extend the length of the region or event by a bar. The length of the extension depends on the time signature.

Only MIDI regions can be extended using this command. Applying it to an audio region does nothing, not even flash the “can’t do that” indicator.

The “Nudge Length” commands are not specifically mentioned in the documentation for resizing regions.

Resize regions in the Logic Pro Tracks area — Apple Support

You can shorten both audio and MIDI regions so that only part of the region plays. You can lengthen MIDI regions to add silence to the beginning or end of the region. In addition, you can resize the common edge of two adjacent regions to control the transition between them and remove overlaps.
