Logic 9 Trasients and editing with marque tool

    Hello


    Help!

    I have 2 question both non related.

    Marque- I could of swan I use be able to break a region with the the Marque then keep pressing the right arrow key to tab to the next transient and do it again without having to command+click to bring the marque line back. Every time I break a region I have to command+click and so on and so forth?????

    Transients-I am new to logic 9 so I'm not fully used to the new transient "thing" in the sample editor. When I click the button and it turns orange, all is good. But I can't figure out how to get one of those transients lines back once I accidentally delete one?

    Side note-Can I tab to transient in the sample editor? Fingers crossed!!!

    Regards,
    Jay

    You write it in with the pencil tool, it will usually snap to the nearest transient so should be the same as the one you deleted if you click in approx the same place.

    It still works here if I split the region by using Backspace.

    If I split the regions by using "Split Regions/Events by Locators or Marquee Selection" Logic 'forgets' that you are working with the Marquee tool and selected the next region instead (when using the right arrow).

    Ok, Thanks to both.

    So is there any way to tab t transient in the sample editor?
    It would save me a bunch of time when using the EXS24.

    From what I know you can, but it's a two step process to set it up.

    1) Assign key commands (Set selection start/end to next/previous transient)

    2) Analyse with Flex before working in Sample Editor (you can also use the Audio File>Detect Transients Sample Editor menu item.)

    Here are Logic's transient related key commands (but not necessarily with the factory key assignments):

    -------- Global Commands --------
    Forward by Transient
    Rewind by Transient

    -------- Arrange and Various Editors --------
    ← •Select Previous Region/Event, or Set Marquee End (or Point/Other Side) to Previous Transient
    → •Select Next Region/Event, or Set Marquee End (or Point/Other Side) to Next Transient
    ⇧← •Toggle Previous Region/Event, or Set Marquee Start (or Extend Point) to Previous Transient
    ⇧→ •Toggle Next Region/Event, or Set Marquee Start (or Extend Point) to Next Transient

    -------- Arrange Window --------
    Move Selection with First Transient to Nearest Beat
    ⌥7 Slice at Transient Markers
    ⌃← Trim Region Start to Previous Transient
    ⌃→ Trim Region Start to Next Transient
    ⌃⌥⇧⌘← Trim Region End to Previous Transient
    ⌃⌥⇧⌘→ Trim Region End to Next Transient

    -------- Sample Edit Window --------
    ⌃⌥⇧⌘↖ Go to Previous Transient
    ⌃⌥⇧⌘↘ Go to Next Transient

    ⇧← Set Selection Start To Previous Transient
    ⇧→ Set Selection Start To Next Transients
    ⌥← Set Selection End To Previous Transient
    ⌥→ Set Selection End To Next Transient
    ⌥⇧← Selection Start and End to Previous Transient
    ⌥⇧→ Selection Start and End to Next Transient
    ⌃⌥⇧← Selection Start and End to Previous Transient and Play
    ⌃⌥⇧→ Selection Start and End to Next Transient and Play

    Set Region Anchor to Previous Transient
    Set Region Anchor to Next Transient
    ⌘T Toggle Transient Editing Mode
    ⌘+ Increase Number of Transients
    ⌘- Decrease Number of Transients
    D Detect Transients of Audio File

    Except that - as far as I can tell - Go to Previous Transient and Go to Next Transient doesn't always work as expected, these key commands are really useful when editing audio. Those I marked in red are particularly useful.

    Having said that: depending on what you want to do, you may not even need to to the sample editor to get your work done.
