  Previous Patch, Plug-in Setting or EXS Instrument    [

Quick way to listen to various settings. Especially handy if you have a number of saved settings that vary only slightly, it’s like using a knob or slider to adjust.

Work with plug-in settings — Logic Pro X

Plug-in settings are stored with the project file and are automatically recalled the next time the project is opened. In the plug-in window, you can load, copy and paste, compare, save, create default, and delete plug-in settings. You can also load, save, and delete plug-in settings in the Library.


Region Automation: Control Change 32 — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Region Automation: Control Change 32

Set the region automation to CC32. With automation being displayed (press ‘A’ on the keyboard) you will typically see “Track” automation. Click on the “Track” button to change to region. There is also an on/off control button as well.

I am not sure of what “Region Automation” is all about. Ahh. Now it makes sense. Sound in space over time. A remarkably complex programming space. I simply need to re-think my programming methods. Parallel programs with function calls tied to time points as opposed to simply being interrupt driven. I need to meditate.

Show automation curves — Logic Pro X:

Before you can add automation points to a track’s automation curves, you need to show the automation curves. Automation curves are displayed as colored curves and points on top of audio and MIDI regions across the track, running the length of the project. You can choose whether to view and edit automation across the track (track-based automation) or only within the track’s regions (region-based automation).


Add Audio File… ⌃F — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Add Audio File…    ⌃F

Add an audio file to your project. Only active when the Project Browser is visible. A much better path to adding audio files than I usually use. I had been using the Media Browser. The “Finder” interface that we get with “Add Audio File…” is much more familiar and usable.

Add and delete audio files — Logic Pro X

When you add an audio file to your project, Logic Pro automatically creates a region that encompasses the entire file length. You can create as many regions as you like from the same audio file. There are no length limitations to regions, as long as they don’t exceed the length of the source audio file. Creating multiple regions from the same audio file is beneficial for many tasks—using different portions of a vocal take that spans the length of the project, for example.

7 Tips for a Balanced Static Mix

7 Tips for a Balanced Static Mix

by Nick Messitte, iZotope Contributor June 17, 2019

If you’ve strolled along the forums, checked out engineering podcasts, or watched YouTube videos, you’ve probably heard of the static mix—yet the static mix is hard to put into words: every engineer seems to have their own definition.
