Drawing Automation in Logic Pro X

Wouldn't you love to just grab the pencil tool in Logic Pro X and literally draw in your automation? This is something I'd always wished for in Logic 9, and now you can in Logic Pro X. Simply switch to the Pencil tool and let your inner artist go at it!

Tips: the slower you draw the more individual nodes are created. If you need a straight line hold the SHIFT key down while drawing. Want to quantize the data? Open the Event Tab in the List Editors window. Switch to the Automation Select Tool and highlight all the data you want quantized. Go back to the Event Editor window and choose a quantization value!

Logic Pro X: A Smarter Color Palette


Who'd have thought there was room to improve the Color Palette!? Even though you can no longer choose custom colors, Apple has made it considerably smarter. Very often you'll have different colored regions on a track after picking various shades from Logic's Color Palette. In Logic 9 if you wanted to select the same shade, it was either a test of your ability to distinguish subtle color variances, or you simply remembered where the color was on the palette! In Logic Pro X, when you click a track with various colored regions (with the the Color Palette open) it shows you all the region colors used on the specific track with a white highlight. You can also click any region, or shift click regions on other tracks to display the colors. No more guess work!

Logic Pro X: Snapping in an Audio Take Folder

volume experienced
For nearly 4 years I've been waiting for this feature! Audio Take folders in Logic Pro X can finally snap to the beat. In Logic 9, lot's of dance artists pack take folders full of audio loops, then Quick-Swipe across them to grab element chucks from the different loops for a stop-chopped electro house technique. I have an article I wrote for macProVideo on doing this very thing. The only problem with this technique up until now, was that when you went to swipe across the various takes, your swipes were not quantized/snapped to a beat. You had to watch the time bar ruler at the top of the arrange window to make sure your swipes were at least close to snapped position. Now in Logic Pro X you can enable "Snap Quick Swipe Comping to Absolute Values" from the Snap menu. This literally snaps your swipes to beat!
