I would not pin this as “Logic’s best kept secret”.

The keyboard shortcuts for manipulating events in the matrix editor on the other hand, actually useful.

Logic’s best kept secret is that it’s a pile of shite.

R Munch says:

Blah. I just hit record and create a midi-track. Cool feature with the chromatic, but seriously not the best kept secret.

Harry Hockjne says:

This was very interesting. Never seen this before, and it’ll come in useful for me.
Also, your voice is very relaxing 😀

Kirk Forchetti says:

Very Helpful little tip. I really like how you will target one specific task and then teach it in an under 4 minute video. It’s hard to go through long tutorials, so these little videos which get to the point and have valuable information is great. Plus, you can make a lot more of them yourself! Very great advice – Thanks!
