Scott Hirsch shows how Track Alternatives allow for multiple edits of any MIDI or audio-based track. The Track Alternatives can be quickly pulled up in place on any given track while the track effects and automation remain the same.
- [Narrator] One of the most powerful new features…of Logic 10.3 is a new editing and arranging tool set…called Track Alternatives.…Track Alternatives allow you to edit…and make different versions of any audio region…or set of regions or mini-performance on a given track.…Essentially, this is Logic's version of Track Playlists,…something you might be familiar with…if you're a Pro Tools user.…Now Track Alternatives can work similarly…to Logic's take folders,…which have been around for a while.…
But as you'll see, they can be used…either in combination with take folders…or on their own.…I'll first demonstrate how you can use Track Alternatives…while recording and arranging a part.…So first, to use Track Alternatives…we'll want to turn them on,…and it's just really a view setting.…So if I type Option T…to get our track header configuration,…you'll notice a button here called Track Alternatives.…It's currently turned off,…and when I click on this you see…a little up and down arrow appears…to the right of every track name…
