Nudge Region/Event Length Left by Division — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Nudge Region/Event Length Left by Division

Make the currently selected Region/Event shorter by the division value. Moves the end position of the event earlier in time.

The “Nudge Region/Event Length” commands are only mentioned in passing in the “View and edit music notation” section of the manual. Clearly the commands are useful in places other than simply notation.

I think I am more fascinated by the “slip” and “rotate” region commands.

Move regions in the Logic Pro Tracks area — Apple Support

You can nudge regions (move them in small increments) left or right using key commands. To nudge regions, you first set the nudge value, then move selected regions by this value. Alternatively, you can nudge regions by a set value.

Trim Region End to Next Region ⇧\ — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Trim Region End to Next Region    ⇧\

Make the end of the current region extend to the start of the next region. Removes gaps between regions. I get confused by assuming that “trim” means cut.

Resize regions in the Logic Pro Tracks area — Apple Support

Choose Edit > Trim > Region End to Next Region (or use the corresponding key command).

Apply Normalize Region/Cell Gain Again ⌃G — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Apply Normalize Region/Cell Gain Again    ⌃G

I habitually change Region gain on tracks that I mix. My current target is peaks of -12 dB. I don’t change region gain if all of the tracks come from a “live” performance where players are typically self-adjusting. In those cases I work with the faders all set to about -9 dB to start.

Normalize audio regions in the Tracks area — Apple Support

You can normalize the gain of selected regions in the Tracks area, without opening the regions in the Audio Track Editor. The Normalize Region Gain menu command is non-destructive: the original file isn’t altered, so you can return it to its original state.

Convert Regions to New Regions ⌥⌘R — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Convert Regions to New Regions    ⌥⌘R

It is a simple matter to create a “clone” of a region. Hold down Shift and Option while dragging a region. There are now copies of the region, located at different points in the timeline, that play the same audio. If you adjust the “original” region start or end point all of the clones are adjusted as well.

More than likely the regions should be made independent so they can be adjusted individually. Use the ‘Convert Regions to New Regions’ command.

The documentation (and the menu command itself) do not agree. The documentation and menu read ‘Audio Region to New Region’ as a sub-menu item of Convert. “Edit->Convert->Audio Region to New Region”.

Clone audio regions in the Logic Pro Tracks area — Apple Support

You can clone audio regions in the Tracks area. Cloning an audio region is similar to creating an alias of a MIDI region; the clone doesn’t contain any audio data, but is only a reference to the original, and any changes to the original apply to its clones.

Part of the documentation reduction debacle of the conversion from Logic Pro 9 to Logic Pro X…The Logic Pro X documentation turned into something other than a user manual, more like a guide…sigh

Logic Pro 9 User Manual: Creating Your Arrangement

Once you have added your audio and MIDI regions to the Arrange area, you can edit and reorganize them to create an overall arrangement, or project. Most arranging and editing techniques work identically for both audio and MIDI regions. Apple Loops are also handled in a similar fashion. Where handling differs, variations are pointed out in the appropriate sections of this chapter. Note that all operations described with a pluralized heading (regions, for example), apply to one or more selected region(s).

Arranging overview — Logic Pro X

After adding audio, MIDI, and Drummer regions to your project (by recording, adding loops, using Drummer or adding media files), you build the project by arranging the regions in the Tracks area. As you work in the Tracks area, you can play the project at any time to hear your latest changes.

Delete and Select Next Region/Event — Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Delete and Select Next Region/Event

Deletes the selected region(s)/event(s) and selects the next region.

When you delete a region with the Erase tool or the delete key only the selected regions are deleted. There is no longer a selection.

Delete regions in the Logic Pro Tracks area — Apple Support

You can delete one or more regions if you don’t want to use them in your project. When you delete a region, you can move the regions that follow in the track to fill in the empty space left by the deleted region.
