My Mac Pro arrives tomorrow and I've been learning Logic via the Groove3 training series. I need to hit the ground running! I'll be recording an album right away which involves lots of guitar tracks. Much of the music involves stops in the guitar parts, so I want all the empty spaces to be very clean. Here's how I would do it in Sonar - Suppose there is a 2 beat section that should be silent. I'd split the clip in two right in the middle of the part that needs to be silent. Then I'd resize each side of the clip so that I'm basically eliminating the silence. Then I'd put a very quick crossfade in to eliminate pops. I know that Logic can work this way, but I'm looking for a faster method. The above way isn't bad, but doing it for 10 guitar tracks in 12 songs gets tedious. I noticed in the Logic training videos that you can just use the mouse to highlight a section, then hit the delete key. That saves me one step. But what about the crossfades? I'm just trying to get this tedious editing as proficient as possible.
