Snap Mode: 1/32 Triplet (1/48) — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Snap Mode: 1/32 Triplet (1/48)

Set the Snap Mode to a 1/32 triplet (i.e. 1/48 of a bar).

The snap values are found in the Snap menu displayed in the Piano Roll editor.

Snap to grid in the Piano Roll Editor in Logic Pro — Apple Support

The Piano Roll Editor has a grid, similar to the Tracks area grid. When Show Advanced Tools is selected in the Advanced preferences pane, you can set the Snap value for the Piano Roll grid, independent from the Snap value for the Tracks area grid. The Piano Roll Editor Snap pop-up menu contains additional values including specific note values.

Force Accidental — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Force Accidental

Forces the display of accidentals (and naturals). Display of notes in the Score Editor depends on the chosen key signature. You can force accidentals to be displayed, even though the key signature implies where the notes are sharp, flat, or natural.

Watch out for classically trained musicians who will double-sharp or double-flat notes depending on the key signature. If a tuba part is written in Bb Major (2 flats) and you put a flat on a Bb (implied) the player _will_ play an A natural (B double-flat).

Don’t accidentally confuse the world 😉

Change how accidentals appear in a score in Logic Pro — Apple Support

By default, the display of accidentals depends on the chosen key signature. Using note attributes, you can change flats to sharps, and vice versa. For information about setting the key signature, see Add key and time signature changes to a score in Logic Pro.

Event Channel = 10 — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Event Channel =  10

Set the channel of the selected event(s) to 10.

Sometimes using keyboard commands is easier than trying to drag numbers up and down, typing in numbers.

There are some special considerations with MIDI channels in the event list. If you select multiple events, open a channel number for editing (double-click so you can type), and type a number in the selected events will be changed relatively. Select channels 11, 12, and 13, change the 11 to 6, you will get channels 6, 7, and 8. Change to 12 and you get 12, 13, and 14. The same thing happens if you type in a number, or drag the number up or down.

If you use the ‘Event Channel = 10’ command all of the events will have their channel changed to 10 with no relative changes. Good to know…

Essentially you execute the ‘Event Channel +1’ and ‘Event Channel -1’ when you drag the channel numbers up and down.

Apply Last Edited Fade Again ⌥⇧X — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Apply Last Edited Fade Again    ⌥⇧X

I create fades using the fade tool that is enabled in the top half of the region display. Very handy. Typically I select multiple regions and apply the fade to all of them at once. This command allows me to apply the fade easily to selected regions.

Maximum fade value is 99,999 which appears to be 100 seconds. That means that the fade values are expressed in milliseconds…

Create fades in Logic Pro — Apple Support

You can fade in the beginning of audio regions, and fade out the end of audio regions (including audio Apple Loops).

Fades are only visible if you are zoomed in enough to see the waveform in the audio region. You can create a fade using either the Fade tool or the Fade In and Fade Out parameters in the Region inspector.

5 Different Ways to Use Software Compressors — Audient

5 Different Ways to Use Software Compressors — Audient

If you asked a room full of audio engineer students what a compressor does, you’d probably get a wide range of responses. “It’s the thing that makes tracks louder!” one may claim. “It’s that plugin David Guetta uses to make his synths pump!” another might say. Is there a single answer? Technically speaking, compressors simply reduce the dynamic range of a signal. Depending on their settings and application, however, compressors can be incredibly useful in a variety of situations. For this tutorial, we’ll be using Ableton’s stock compressors, but any basic software compressor will do. Here are 5 common uses of compressors:
