What You've Learned

  • Song templates are preconfigured song files that contain an Arrange window set up for certain types of music production.
  • When you create a project folder, all audio files added to the song will be copied into the project folder. This makes it easy to back up your song when you're finished making music.
  • Rubber-banding lets you drag a selection range around multiple adjacent Regions. All Regions enclosed or touched by the rubber band are selected.
  • The Cycle mode, when enabled, defines an area of your song that will play over and over again. To create a cycle, drag from left to right in the top portion of the Bar Ruler.
  • Skip Cycle mode defines an area of your song that Logic jumps over, or skips. To create a skip cycle, drag from right to left in the top portion of the Bar Ruler.
  • The Scissors tool is used to divide Regions.
  • Hiding tracks removes them from the Arrange window's display, but the tracks are still part of the arrangement and they continue to play (Logic Pro only).
  • The running man button in the top left corner of an editing window activates Logic's Catch mode. With this button enabled, the window's display area follows the SPL as the song plays.
  • To disable the Catch mode, move the scroll bar at the bottom of the editing window.
  • The Scroll in Play function causes Arrange area Regions to scroll past the SPL like tape scrolling past a playhead.
  • Key commands give you access to most of Logic's functions direct from the keyboard. You create them using the Key Commands window. Choose Logic > Preferences > Key Commands (Option-K) to open the Key Commands window.
