Cmd + S | Save

This is by far one of the most useful key commands in Logic Pro if you you’re tracking live instruments or even Midi for that matter.

Hit record but forgot to arm your track? Nothing can be more annoying. This key command means you don’t have stretch and move the mouse when tracking apart.

Cmd + G | Group Tracks

Huge sessions call for organization, group, and stack your tracks and bring some calm to your DAW session!

X | Create crossfades

This neat key command will create crossfades within your chose audio regions.

Shift + X | Create auto-cross fades

Similar to crossfades but with even less work needed, automatic crossfades!
