Previous Screenset — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Previous Screenset

Switch to the previous screenset. Previous means “current screenset minus one”. Next screenset means “current screenset plus one”.

I would like to be able to jump back to the most recently used screenset, but that’s just me.

Create and recall screensets in Logic Pro — Apple Support

Note: Screensets 1 to 9 can be recalled by freely defined key commands, not only the number keys on your computer keyboard. This allows you to use the number keys for other purposes, such as opening or closing windows. The 1 to 9 key commands are called Recall Screenset 1–9 in the Key Commands window.

Paste Steps ⌥⇧V — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Paste Steps    ⌥⇧V

Paste the steps (on the clipboard) onto the current row. The contextual menu for the row has the copy/paste commands in it, available when there is something to be pasted, dimmed if not.

I used Opcode Vision and Studio Vision back in the late 1980s. At some point I should re-visit step sequencing with the incredible array of instruments I now can carry in my tool bag.

Edit Step Sequencer steps in Logic Pro — Apple Support

You can copy a step, including all of its step settings. When you paste a copied step, the destination row should be of the same row type (note or automation) as the source row. All step settings are copied, with one exception: If the step rate was not edited for that individual step (that is, if it still uses the pattern or row step rate), the pasted step inherits the step rate of the step that it replaces.

Cycle Through Mixer Modes (Single, Tracks, All) ⇧X — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Cycle Through Mixer Modes (Single, Tracks, All)    ⇧X

Switches the mixer modes from the keyboard. I don’t think I have any real use for ‘All’ mode.

There are no separate commands for setting the Mixer mode to Single, Tracks, or All.

The GLOBAL VIEW button on the X-Touch is used to switch between ‘All’ and ‘Tracks’. Press OPTION+GLOBAL VIEW to switch to ‘Single’ mode.

Overview of mixing in Logic Pro — Apple Support

Click the Single button to show the signal flow of the channel strip that corresponds to the selected track in the Tracks area.

Click the Tracks button to show the signal flow of all channel strips that correspond to tracks used in the Tracks area.

Click the All button to show the signal flow of all channel strips available in the project.

Mackie Control Global View buttons in Logic Pro — Apple Support

The GLOBAL VIEW button is used in conjunction with the other eight GLOBAL VIEW buttons to display (and edit) specific types of channel strips. Pressing any of the buttons activates All View; when this view is active, the green LED to the right of the GLOBAL VIEW button is lit.

Logic Pro 9 Control Surfaces Support: Mackie Control: Global View Zone

When you press one of the buttons in the Global View zone, the corresponding type of channel strip appears in the main LCD. You can edit each channel strip with the corresponding channel strip controls. Pressing multiple buttons (Audio Tracks, Instruments, and Aux, for example) displays all channels of the selected types.

The version 9 and version 10 (prior to 10.5) Control Surfaces Support manuals have far better documentation and descriptions of the Mackie Control functions and uses.

Clear pick finger — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Clear pick finger

Removes the ‘pick finger’ notation on the score. There is a complete lack of information about pick fingers, other than the indicators P I M A C — the “names” of the fingers.

A large amount of assumed knowledge.

The Spanish Fingering System — dummies

In traditional guitar notation, the letters p, i, m, and a are used to refer to the fingers on the picking hand. Taken from the Spanish language, here’s what the letters represent:

Assign To Exclusive Group: 4 — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Assign To Exclusive Group: 4

Assigns the selected pad/button to exclusive group 4.

Use Logic Pro Drum Machine Designer pad controls — Apple Support

Exclusive Group: Choose a group for the pad. You can assign multiple pads to the same group. As soon as one drum sound in the group is triggered, all other sounds in that same group are stopped. For example, you could group three pads with open, semi-closed, and closed hi-hat sounds. Only one of these sounds can be played at a time, mirroring the behavior of real hi-hats.

Create and customize Drum Machine Designer kits in Logic Pro — Apple Support

Create custom Drum Machine Designer kits with more than 2000 kit pieces patches from the Logic Pro sound library or use your own samples.

I keep thinking that the Drum Machine Designer could help with “drum replacement” or “drum enhancement”l. A lot of experimentation needs to happen.
