Yesterday we got right down to writing a basic riff using all the available tools in Logic. But if we can honest… my timing wasn’t spot-on ;P
So now it’s time to dig into the weeds of the various Logic editors and clean up my performance. Logic allows us to Quantize our performances to the Project Tempo. And it’s super easy to do!
With MIDI performances we can use the Piano Roll Editor to tighten up my Electric key performance right to the grid.
When it comes to Audio Regions, we can use Logic’s amazing Flex Time. Flex Time is a time compression and expansion tool for adjusting the timing of recorded performances.
Instead of chopping up your performance and moving the Regions to line up with the grid, Flex Time allows us to change the timing of the performance after the fact.
To put it simply – Flex Time is amazing.
We’ll also check out Flex Pitch, which is Logic’s algorithm for adjusting the pitch of recorded performances. Flex Pitch works great with monophonic signals.
Monophonic means instruments that play one voice or pitch at a time. Think a vocal track, bass guitar, or lead guitar or synth.
Logic has all the tools one needs to nail that perfect performance. Even if we don’t nail it the first time around 🙂
