Recall Screenset 2x ⌃2 — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Recall Screenset 2x    ⌃2

I don’t imagine that I would have 20 or more screensets, but I can certainly imagine situations where that might happen. Easy to imagine 20 or more scenes in a movie or show where a screenset is used to help keep things arranged (and now I can see where numbered markers might help as well.) I can also see the value of being able to program screenset changes into playback.

Seems that I have the screenset recalls mapped to SHIFT-number as opposed to CONTROL-number.

Create, recall, and switch screensets — Logic Pro X

You position windows in a layout that suits the way you work. This layout of various windows, including their display size, zoom levels, position, and other settings, is called a screenset. Once defined, you can save, and freely switch between different screensets, much as you might between different computer displays.

Create 2 Track Automation Points each for Volume, Pan, Sends — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Create 2 Track Automation Points each for Volume, Pan, Sends

Adds typical automation “lanes” with points for adjustment at the start and end of a track. Automation points are added for each send that is currently assigned to the channel for the track.

Add and adjust automation points — Logic Pro X

To create changes over time to volume, pan, and effects settings, you add automation points to a track’s automation curve at different places, and then adjust the automation points so the value of the setting changes. You can adjust automation points by moving them up or down to a new value or by moving them left or right to a new point in the timeline. Numerical values are displayed alongside each automation point. You can also raise or lower the value of MIDI parameters associated with notes in instrument tracks or Drummer tracks. Note and numerical values are displayed alongside each MIDI data point. You can also add automation points at selection area or region borders.


Delete Unused Groups — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Delete Unused Groups

This command is used with the EXS24 sampler. Another casualty of the slashing of documentation in the change from Logic Pro 9 to Logic Pro X.

Wildly unfortunate — if you use the command-/ keypress to get further help on the command (as suggested in the Key Commands window) you get directed to the “Groups” section of the help system. Mixer Groups are definitely not what is going on here. Miles away. Mis-direction.

Logic Pro 9 Instruments: Creating EXS24 mkII Instruments, Zones, and Groups

Choose Group > Delete Unused Groups in the Instrument Editor.

EXS24 mkII overview — Logic Pro X

EXS24 mkII is a software sampler. It plays back audio files, called samples, that you load into it. These samples are combined into tuned, organized collections called sampler instruments. Because sampler instruments are based on audio recordings, they are ideally suited to emulating real instruments such as guitars, pianos, and drums.


Automation Select Tool U — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Automation Select Tool    U

Selects the “Automation Select” tool when the Tool menu is open. The key sequence to select the tool is T followed by U. There is a separate command — “Set Automation Select Tool” — that can be assigned to a keypress if you desire. Personally the T-U sequence works just fine for me.

Select, copy, and move automation — Logic Pro X

After you create automation points and curves, you can easily change things to meet your needs. You can copy automation within a track or between tracks and can move automation within a track. When moving regions, you can choose whether or not to move any existing automation with it.

Audio File Editor overview — Logic Pro X

Most day-to-day audio editing tasks are performed in the main window and Audio Track Editor. The Audio File Editor is useful for removing pops and clicks in audio material, setting accurate crossover points for looped playback, correcting phase cancellation errors, and more.
