Beside the key commands there are (for me) three main features in Logic that are overlooked a lot. My whole workflow is based on this features (which makes it really painful for me to change to any other DAW). The inspector is showing all parameters of the selected region. But: if no region is selected everything set in the inspector concerns every new recorded midi region. Example: no region selected, inspector set to 16th quantisation: everything recorded from now on is quantised to 16th. Same for transposition, dynamic range, velocity, etc. Can save a lot of time when wisely used. Make your own screen sets. If you want to see the piano roll and the same region as a score and also in the event list open all three editors and place them without overlapping good visible on your screen and save it as a screen set. It's one key command to recall that combination. I never open or close windows while editing. I record midi and see everything immediately in open editors. And beside plugins I NEVER have overlapping windows on my screen. I just select my screen set which has the needed combination of editors open. All of them are interactive. I can select a note in the score, adjust the length in the piano roll and change the velocity in the event list without any window action. The little chain symbol determine what is shown in the editor window. Yellow chain means the content changes to the selected region. If switched to black it keeps the shown content independent of the selection. I use this a lot to show my piano sketches in a score window and play the instrument part reading it. Or watch the bass part while playing chords. I have a screen set with two score editors, one showing the piano sketch (locked by black chain) and the other shows my current recording (yellow chain). Works for all editor windows. Some examples of my screen sets: Main work area (Logic default) on main screen, mixer on the second (mixer divided into two windows for tracks and aux's) Main window + event list + piano roll editor on main screen, mixer on the second Main window + event list + score editor on main screen, movie on the second Score editor for arranging showing the whole score (small zoom) Score editor for arranging showing all strings + woodwinds Score editor for arranging showing all strings + brass Score editor for arranging showing all woodwinds + brass Two main (arrange) windows, one with close zoom and one with the whole song Main window + piano roll incl controller lane Main window + score incl controller lane You get the idea.
