Track grouping was upgraded in Logic Pro X 10.2.1 to allow making settings to more than one track group at a time. Sound engineer Scott Hirsch demonstrates this new feature. He then shows how track groups can be set to phase locked editing for drums and how this affects flex time editing in the arrange window on audio regions with different lengths.
- [Voiceover] In my opinion, grouping functions…for tracks in Logic has always been a bit behind…the curve as compared to grouping features…in other DAWs, so just Pro tools.…WIth a 10.2.1 release, Logic Pro now has some improved…functionality to groups.…Let's check those out.…So here we have a band kind of performance…where we've got a drum kit on the first four tracks.…A bass, a guitar, and a left and a right roads piano tracks.…Let's pop over to the mix window, Command Two.…
Now here I'm going to make a group for all…of my drums tracks.…So I'll select Kick, Overhead, Left and Right…and Snare.…Those are my drums tracks and just like before,…we can assign these to a group,…we'll assign them to group one.…And I'd also like to make a group for the…two Roads tracks.…So I'll select those and then Shift and select…those two tracks and I'll put that on Group Two.…Now the new feature in 10.2.1…is that if we go into here and open the group…settings window, we can now change the parameters…for one group at a time or both groups together.…
