KeyCommands List

If you are already familiar with using Logic, there are a few changes from the default key commands you should be aware of. These KeyCommands are based on the default (US) Logic key commands now updated for version 10.5, but with some minor changes. I remapped the SpaceBar to make logic’s playback behavior more in line with other DAW’s. The default Logic Playback behavior can be found by pressing ⌃⌘Space.
Since there are specific commands to “Create Folder Stack ” (⇧⌘H) and to “Create Summing Stack ” (⇧⌘G), I remapped the command to “Create Track Stack…” (⇧⌘D), which would just open. A Dialog and ask you to choose whether to create a folder stack or a summing stack. Now ⇧⌘D will Duplicate a track and it’s Settings and Regions. Coincidentally I remapped the Open Track Stack and Close Track Stack keys as I added a single key command to Open/Close Track Stack which is ⌥Accent.
Also I personally set VoiceOver to only use the CapsLock key thus freeing up more options for modifier keys. You will have to make this change yourself in the VoiceOver Utility found by pressing VO+F8. If you don’t set VoiceOver to use capsLock only, you will have to press VO+TAB to pass through any KeyCommand with Control & Option as modifier keys.
And of course, if you haven’t already done so, grab a copy of the Logic Keyboard Ninja Key Commands File. Installation instructions if needed can be found under the “Installing The Key Command File” heading on the Getting Started page.

Play & Record

Play or Stop: ⌃⌘Space
Think of this as a Play/Pause command. With each press of this key command, the playhead will pause or resume playback from the current playhead position. e.g. If you start playing from the beginning of the project and then press ⌃⌘Space around measure/bar 3, when you press ⌃⌘Space again, playback will resume from that exact spot around measure/bar 3 where it was “paused”.
Play or Stop and Go to Last Locate Position: Space
Playback will always start from the last place you moved the playhead to. E.g. If you start playback from the beginning of the project, and press Space around measure/bar 3, playback will stop and the playhead will return to the start of the project. The next time you hit Space playback will start from the beginning again. If you were to use one of the Project Navigation methods outlined below to move the playhead to say measure/bar 3, playback will now resume from bar 3 whenever you press Space.
Record: R
Press to start recording. Press Space to stop recording. Press Space again to playback what you just recorded.
Record/Record Toggle: * (on the NumPad)
Stops recording but continues playback. Press again to resume recording from current playhead position.
Capture as Recording: ⇧R
On a MIDI track if you start playing with out hitting record first and you liked your performance this will allow you to capture it after the fact.
Record/Record Repeat: ⌃⌥R
Deletes recording, moves playhead back to recording start position, and start recording again.
Discard Recording and Return to Last Play Position: ⌘Period
Deletes recording and move the playhead back to the last play position. Unlike Record/Record Repeat, you will need to manually begin a new recording.

  • Record Into Cell ⌥R
  • Play Enter (On The NumPad)
  • Pause Period (On The NumPad)
  • Stop 0 (On The NumPad)

Workflow Tip

I would recommend setting the division value to be a beat or 1/4th note as its listed in logic with ⇧/. This way you can use Comma and Period to move by measure, use ⌃⌘Comma and ⌃⌘Period to move by beats and use ⌃⌥⌘Comma and ⌃⌥⌘Period to move by 16th note divisions through out the project.

Workflow Tip

“Folder Stack” allows you to group tracks so you can mute and solo, adjust volume, pan, and etc for a group of tracks from one fader or track header. “Summing Stack” actually routes the output of all the tracks in the stack to a bus, so in addition to all the things a folder track can do you can also put effects on a summing stack to effect all tracks in the stack at once. You can also record MIDI data on a summing stack to trigger all the software instruments inside of the track stack at once. You can unstac either folder or summing tracks with the flatten stacks command.

Selecting Regions

  • Select Next Region/Event or Move Marquee End (or Marquee Point) to Next Transient →
  • Toggle Previous Region/Event or Move Marquee Start (or Extend Marquee Selection) to Previous Transient ⇧←
  • Toggle Next Region/Event or Move Marquee Start (or Extend Marquee Selection) to Next Transient ⇧→
  • Set Marquee to Selection * ⇧⌘
  • Set Region/Event/Marquee Start to Playhead Position ⌘LeftBracket ( [ )
  • Set Region/Event/Marquee End to Playhead Position ⌘RightBracket ( ] )
  • Go to Selection Start ⌃Home
  • Go to Selection End ⌃End
  • Play from Selection ⇧Space

Workflow Tip

The above commands are mostly contextual. Right and Left arrow will select the next and previous regions respectively. If you have a marquee selection however, Right and left arrows will adjust the end point of said marquee selection forward or backwards by a transient. This is a great way to fine tune where a marquee selection ends.
Similarly, Shift Right and Shift Left arrows Will extend the selected region to include the next or previous region respectively. If you have a marquee selection however Shift Right and Shift Left arrows will adjust the start point of the selection forward or backward by transient. This is a great way to fine tune the start point of any marquee selection.
The ⌘LeftBracket ( [ ) and ⌘RightBracket ( ] ) KeyCommands will set the start point or end point of a selected region to where ever the playhead is. This is a quick way to trim a region. However if you have a marquee selection ⌘LeftBracket ( [ ) and ⌘RightBracket ( ] ) will set where the marquee selection start and end points are. So you can use ⌘LeftBracket ( [ ) and ⌘RightBracket ( ] ) to set where a marquee selection starts and end after converting a selection to a marquee selection with ⇧⌘\. Once you have the start and end points set, you can fine tune the start point if needed with Shift Left and Right arrows, and the end point with Left and Right arrows.
For other ways to make selections, see the “Making Selections” section on the “Getting Started With Logic” Page. Useful pointers can also be found on the [Frequently Encountered Scenario page.

Workflow Tip

Logic does select all regions on a track when you Navigate to a new track in the track header area. However, when you select a region in the track background area inside the track contents area, it will not change what track is selected in the track header area. To use the move selected region to selected track or copy selected region to selected track you will need to first select the track you want regions moved/copied to in the track header area, then in the Track Contents area, interact with a particular tracks background area and select the region you want to move or copy with VO+Space before issuing those commands. As logic does not Change the selected track When you select a region on a different track in this manner, the move or copy command will move or copy the region to the track that is selected in the track header.
Other means of making selections can be found on the “Frequently Encountered Scenario” or the [“Getting Started With Logic” pages.

Workflow Tip

You can nudge a region right and left with ⌥→ and ⌥←. To set what value the regions are nudged by use one of the “Set Nudge Value to” options to set how far right and left ⌥→ or ⌥← will nudge. You can also set nudge value by Edit menu > Move > Set Nudge Value. To nudge a region by different nudge values on the fly without having to constantly change the amounts ⌥→ and ⌥← are set to, use one of the “Nudge Region/Event Position Left/Right by” key commands.
