Trim Region End to Next Transient ⌃] - control-rightSquareBracket

Exists in ‘local’ menus and contextual menus.

I understand “Trim Region Start to Next Transient ⇧⌃]”, but trim end to next transient?

I really need to be using the “Audio Track Editor” to edit zoomed regions without zooming the tracks in the arrange window. So many fewer changes of reality.

The complete chapter is here…

5 Ways To Play Like Bill Evans — KeyboardMag

5 Ways To Play Like Bill Evans — KeyboardMag:

Bill Evans single-handedly changed the sound of jazz piano—literally, with his left hand! His four-note, rootless chord voicings consist of guide tones (thirds and sevenths), along with chord tones, color tones, extensions, and/or alterations.

This was a challenge. Read some, look at the printed music, imagine what it sounds like, find the example audio on SoundCloud.

I made it work.

Delete Lane Set — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Delete Lane Set

No default key command.

In the Step Editor you can create multiple lane sets. Fascinating reading. A different way to edit MIDI data, useful for creating patterns.

Way more powerful than the “Magic Drumstick” and the “Pulse Window” that I remember from Opcode Vision.

The Sound of the 1970s and 1980s

More like the 80s

NAD integrated amplifier, Dual turntable, recordings from 1950s, 1960s. All vinyl, all the time…

The simple answer was “Boston Acoustics”, not me, I know there are tools that will “warm it up”.

I went “B&W”. No one was saying “Bowers and Wilkins” in the U.S. Too much like “Evelyn and Crabtree” (or the other way around, fun nose trinkets).

Modern “flat” speakers are sooooooooo flat compared to anything from the 1980s at a real person’s budget.

Devil’s in the details, watch out for “re-masters”.

So the saxes, the Evanses, the odd-rhythmists, they need warm. Yup. A transistor needs help. So does the computer 😉

MJQ — Django — Rudy Van Gelder re-master (he surely didn’t record it?)

Needs warms. Cold, wintry sound without help.

My attempt is flat speakers proceeded by iZotope “Vinyl” to get me vintage gear, with a T-Racks 5 “Saturator-X” at the front. It’s pretty close to the home stereo. Maybe a little “room”.

The new graphic EQ for the home stereo might be Audio Hijack with a bunch of plugins in front of the audio. It works for me, since that’s what I heard and what I know deep in my ears.

I need to build the amusing “Hey Dingus” command of “Play me some Bill Evans on a 1960’s stereo” — how’s that for a graphic EQ? The AREQ?

Ahh, the magic happens.

I need to add some room! not where it was recorded, but where it is heard. T-Racks 5 — CSR Classik — Room. Reflections only.

I want to be in the room where a performance happens!

The VIrtual Orchestra: String Basics — KeyboardMag

The VIrtual Orchestra: String Basics — KeyboardMag:

Many film and TV scores live or die on how well the strings are conjured. Fortunately, the state of the art of sampled string libraries is finally approaching a level of illusion that can convince all but the most refined ears. As much as we’d all love to play a keyboard and sound like a symphony orchestra, it almost always takes the patient construction of multiple tracks and an understanding of real orchestration to create authentic string passages.

I need to translate into Miroslav Philharmonik 2 or Logic’s “Studio Strings”.

A good morning (or two) exercise.
