Nudge Region/Event Length Left by Division — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Nudge Region/Event Length Left by Division

Make the currently selected Region/Event shorter by the division value. Moves the end position of the event earlier in time.

The “Nudge Region/Event Length” commands are only mentioned in passing in the “View and edit music notation” section of the manual. Clearly the commands are useful in places other than simply notation.

I think I am more fascinated by the “slip” and “rotate” region commands.

Move regions in the Logic Pro Tracks area — Apple Support

You can 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.

Logic Pro MIDI Transform window overview — Apple Support

The MIDI Transform window is a powerful tool for edits that would otherwise be impossible (or tedious). For example, imagine an orchestral project that has been sent to you for editing. The individual violin and viola parts were recorded with a different string library. Two hundred MIDI regions contain aftertouch information that introduces an unpleasant pitch modulation, and some sample layer switching artifacts when played with your string samples. After looking at this aftertouch information, you discover that only a small range of values is causing the problem. Your options: edit your sampler instruments, manually remove all aftertouch information (region by region, or globally, thus losing the performance benefits that the aftertouch information provides), or alter the problematic values in the MIDI Transform window.

Toggle Auto Input Monitoring — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Toggle Auto Input Monitoring

Use this when doing punch recording. Typically you would have it on so you can hear previous recorded input that switches to “live” at the punch-in location.

You can use the key command to toggle the mode, configure the control bar to have the Auto-Input Monitoring button available (speaker with AUTO underneath), or toggle the setting with the Record button (control-click for menu).

Turn on input monitoring for audio tracks — Logic Pro X Help

You can turn on input monitoring to monitor audio tracks that are not enabled for recording. This is useful for setting audio levels or practicing parts before you commit to recording.

Punch in and out of audio recordings in Logic Pro — Apple Support

When it comes to judging punch-in and punch-out points during punch recording, you should turn on auto input monitoring (which it is, by default). This setting allows you to hear the input signal only during the actual recording; before and afterward you’ll hear the previously recorded audio on the track. If auto input monitoring is turned off, you can always hear the input signal.

How Inter-plugin Communication Shows up in Your Workflow

by Will Hunt, Product Marketing Manager January 16, 2020

We talk about Inter-plugin Communication in our products, but what does it actually mean? It is not one single feature, but a framework that lets iZotope plug-ins work as a team to help you accomplish common mix tasks that professional engineers tackle on the job every day. In this article, I’ll use the Tonal Balance Bundle to demonstrate ways iZotope plug-ins use this framework to streamline common mixing tasks.
