Now on to today’s post…
Key commands are a Logic user’s best friend. Or at least they should be! The time it takes to press a key on your Mac’s keyboard takes ages using a mouse.
(And if you use the Key Command launcher in the Logic Remote app, it can be even faster.)
And Logic Pro has tons of pre-assigned key commands for many common commands:
- R for Record
- A for Automation
- E for Editors
But did you know there are lots of commands in Logic Pro that have no key commands assigned to them? And that many of those commands are only available to be used as key commands?
While it may be daunting to explore the “Unused” tab of the Key Commands menu, there are plenty of gems to assign.
So today I’d love to share 10 unused commands I’ve assigned to my Mac’s keyboard. They’ve dramatically sped up my workflow when:
- Writing Automation
- Bypassing Effect Chains
- Copying & Pasting Plug-ins (or Sends!) from one Channel Strip to another
- Undoing and Redoing changes specifically in the Mixer
- Undoing and Redoing changes specifically with Plug-ins
Hopefully today’s video above will inspire you to dig a bit deeper into the “Unused” tab of Logic’s Key Commands menu.
