Re: X-AIR and M-AIR mixers and system delay? — Music Tribe

This is a very handy tip.

Re: X-AIR and M-AIR mixers and system delay? — Music Tribe

You can add delay to a bus or Main LR mix on an XAir mixer by inserting a Pitch Shifter FX processor. This is the best processor to use for this because the Delay control has finer resolution than the normal delays. If you set Semi and Cent to zero, Mix to 100% and Hi Cut to 20kHz, the processor will just act as a delay. Use half of a Dual processor for a bus or the Stereo version for Main LR or a linked bus pair.

Use step input recording techniques — Logic Pro X

Step input allows you to insert MIDI notes when you’re not recording in real time. You can use step input to create note runs that may be too fast for you to play or to replicate sheet music that’s too difficult for you to play.

You can use one or more of the following for step input:

Snap Mode: 1/4 Triplet (1/6) — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

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

  Snap Mode: 1/4 Triplet (1/6)

The Snap Mode menu/control that I regularly see (and on occasion, use) is at the top of the Tracks window. Interestingly, the menu does not contain the note or triplet options. If I assign the command to a key and invoke it the Snap Mode control “blanks” giving no indication that it is enabled, or what it is set to.

I suspect that this is a bug, or a set of modes that are no longer considered useful. In either event I am very unlikely to set my Snap mode to ‘1/4 Triplet’.

Snap items to the grid — Logic Pro X:

The Tracks area includes a grid that helps you align regions, automation points, and other items with the time divisions in the ruler. When you perform any of the following actions, the items move according to the current Snap value:

If I am using the Piano Roll editor the Snap Mode control does show the note-valued menu items, and displays it as ‘1/4 T’. Snap modes appear to be independently set in the two edit/arrange windows. As I thought about this, and looked at the interesting 1/96 setting I remembered the ‘old days’ of MIDI where time could be specified down to 1/96th of a quarter note.

Nudge values can be set to the note-valued settings as well.
