Welcome to day 26 of “Newbie to Ninja” here on WLPR! “Newbie to Ninja” is a beginner’s guide to Apple’s Logic Pro. Videos drop daily (Mondays-Fridays) for the next several weeks.
If you’re brand new to Logic Pro, this series will help you go from feeling like a beginner to complete comfort in Apple’s amazing DAW.
Editing audio used to be a truly laborious affair. For example, let’s say you wanted to edit the timing of a guitar performance to line up better with the Project Tempo.
Well, you’d have to:
- Split up your regions with the Marquee or Scissors Tool at every transient
- Move those regions around to line up with the grid
- Backfill and fine-tune the region boundaries to avoid bad edits
- Add crossfades between each region to ensure smooth edit points
- Enable Flex for your audio track
- Choose a Flex Mode
- Pick a Quantize value
Flex Time makes editing in as simple as can be in Logic Pro. Grab a transient with your Flex Tool to bend and stretch audio like a rubber band. Or let Logic Quantize your audio with the click of a mouse.
Heck, turn on Flex & Follow for all audio tracks and change your Project’s tempo. Hear how all your audio just follows along with the updated tempo!
Learn all this and more in today’s 26th installment of “Newbie to Ninja” above.
