Capture most recent MIDI performance in Logic Pro — Apple Support

It’s possible to capture your most recent MIDI performance, even if Logic Pro isn’t recording using the Capture Recording feature. You can use Capture Recording whether in playback mode or stopped.

When Cycle mode is off, Capture Recording creates a region containing all the MIDI events received during playback. In Cycle mode, you can use Capture Recording to create a new take region for each new cycle during which MIDI events are received when you have the Overlapping MIDI Regions preference set to “Create Take Folder.”

Toggle Software Monitoring — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Toggle Software Monitoring

Changes the state of software monitoring. As stated in the documentation you should use direct monitoring from your interface when you don’t need to hear the sound with any of the inserts. Monitoring through plug-ins can cause uncomfortable latency.

Before recording audio in Logic Pro — Apple Support

Enable software monitoring, which allows you to monitor incoming audio through any effects that are inserted into a record enabled audio track, if desired. Many audio interfaces offer a direct or hardware monitoring option which sends the audio signal being recorded to a monitor output before the signal is sent to Logic Pro. If your interface offers direct recording you should use it, and only use software monitoring if you’re using effects on an record enabled channel strip.
