    A little help with editing when zoomed in far
    Hey everyone, I want to know how i can edit parts of my arrange window e.g a crossfade between to audio tracks. Only when i am zoomed in very close, and i'll hit the play button, logic will play from the cycle range and i'll miss where my edits are. Is there a way i can still play from the cycle and see my edits without the screen changing? I know this is hard to explain, if you need more details please ask. If anybody has used pro tools, this can be done by using the 'dynamics transport' under options. Cheers

    Hi Bequick, I think you want to turn off "Catch"? If you turn it off (it's the little walking man icon above global tracks) and then play it automatically turns itself back on... However, Logic has options :) Go to Logic Pro > Preferences > Global [Catch] Here, un tick "Catch when Logic starts" Now in the Arrange, set your locators, zoom in on the crossfade or edit area and press play. The Playhead begins playing from the cycle start but your view will stay fixed on the area you wish to look at. Another tip that may help. If you wish to keep the cycle area on, but begin playback wherever the playhead is. Press pause twice. Let me know if that helps or not. Cheers Rounik

    my pleasure :) There isn't a key command for "play from playhead regardless of cycle" unfortunately. But you can of course assign a command for Pause... Another way to do this (if you use the Marquee tool a lot as a secondary mouse tool) is to click in a region with the marquee tool and press play. The playhead will begin playback from the marquee "line". You can also use a marquee selection to play just the selection regardless of the cycle area being active... but i digress ;-) Take care, Rounik
