mixer view in Logic X

Postby MarkOne » Sun Aug 05, 2018 5:32 pm

I'm sure I'm being dim...

Is there a way to toggle between Mixer filling the screen and arrange filling the screen. You can hide the mixer, but I just can't see how to hide the arrange page

I'm sure Desmond will know if such a way exists. I'm guessing you need to tell Logic to 'undock' the mixer - I'm fairly sure I've seen it on a separate screen, so if that can be done, it's down to the toggling / switching active window.

I do hope Des knows how - I'd quite like to try that as well! :)

Sure. Logic 8 and onwards added the integrated arrange window approach, where the arrange page can have the lower half become the mixer window, track editor etc - but you don't have to use Logic that way. :)

So, put the arrange page as you'd like it. This is on screenset 1 by default. Press "2" on your computer to go to screenset 2. Some combination of different windows may now appear depending on what's in your current template.

Arrange the window how you'd like - say, open a new "Mixer" window, close any arrange and other windows, and position it full screen. Now, you press 1 for your full screen arrange, and 2 for your full screen mixer window.

And maybe 3 for your "editing" screenset, with various editors and other tool windows open for your convenience.

Just because these are tools that have been there since Logic 1.x doesn't make them any less useful! ;)

There are many other window key commands too, depending on your window workflow... so you could open a full screen main window, and a full screen mixer window, and toggle between them using the cycle windows key command - but screensets are better and are the best approach for this stuff.

See - I knew he was dead clever.

I've never even looked at window sets! Maybe I should rtfm one day... :)

Must be nice to have an acronym named after you - rather than just used about you! ;)
