Fixing a chord clash in Apple Logic pro X

Like most things, fixing a subtle clash in logic is pretty much the same as it was in Ableton. I'm playing this line and there's something I don't like, but I don't wanna lose it, so we're going to capture it. And so now the goal is to superimpose the melody over the chords and find the problem. So we select them both. And to make our job easier, we're going to view notes by region color. Now the chords are brown and the melody is green. Shift option arrow will transpose the melody down into the octave of the chords, and hopefully we can see the problem.

Yeah, this one's pretty subtle, but you know what? It bothered me and that's what it's all about, right? Because only you get to decide what's a clash and what isn't helping you to train your ear and do something about it. Well, that's our job.


Like most of the important things we teach, the platform is less important than being able to realize your ideas. This is why we teach logic and Ableton separately, but combine everyone else together when it comes time to talk about the things they all have in common: Mixing, Music Theory, Songwriting, Sound design. In this case, the operations for locating this harmonic “clash“ are pretty similar. We don’t have focus mode in Logic Pro. But we can assign colors to notes, select them and then view them against the rest of the arrangement. Key commands for transposition Are up to you. Capture recording works and much the same way as well. #LogicPro #Producertips #Ableton#prodcerlifestlye

Upward compression, downward compression, and expansion

Downward compression, upward compression, expansion. and it’s to get these mixed up. But I hope you’ll forgive me if I try to simplify this in about 30 seconds. All three are form of dynamics processi
