Waveform Wednesday: Customize Logic’s Keyboard Shortcuts

A great feature in Apple’s Logic (Pro and Express) is the ability to customize keyboard shortcuts, and to create shortcuts for commands that previously had none. To do this, go to Logic - Preferences - Key Commands (⌥+K)

Scroll through the window to find key commands for functions you not have known existed. Use the search field in the top-right to type in a command you’re looking for.

To change a key command, click Learn By Key Label, and type in the command. Logic will warn you if it is already in use, and give you the option to replace if you like.

The best part is that you can export and import commands. This is useful when working in Logic on a different computer.

To assign a shortcut from a MIDI device (such as record or rewind from the transport buttons on the Oxygen25), click Learn New Assignment in the bottom-right.
