Logic Pro X Tutorial: Copying A Bar of Automation Data (Quick Tip Series)

Copying A Bar of Automation Data in Logic Pro X

You’ve programmed an awesome chord progression or lead line and you want to do something fancy with it.

Next, you decide to be a smarty pants and use a filter cut off to add something similar to the underwater Drake effect that everyone seems to be trying to recreate.

You’ve written your automation and it sounds insane!

You now want to copy the Automation Data across to a new track but because you’re a lazy sod you don’t want to draw it out manually again.

It’s cool just repeat this, Go to Track > Other > New Track With Same Instrument. Copy a bar of your sequence, containing the Automation data, to this new track below.

Then copy and paste ‘under’ your sequence of notes above. With each duplication, the Automation data will copy and you’ll see it both on the new and previous tracks.
