Cut and Insert Section would do something like this:
example: 4 regions, each 2 bars. All next to each other.
Set the locators over region no.2.
click Cut Section.
Region no.2 is cut and now the Arrange looks like:
Region1 (bar 1-3) | Region 3 (bars 3-5) | Region 4 (bars 5-7)
Now place the playhead at bar 5 1 1 1 and click on 'Insert Section' and Region2 will no be pasted at Bar 5-7 and region 4 will be shifted to Bar 7-9.
If you have regions on multiple tracks, then cut and insert section will cut an insert whole sections of the Arrangement!
Does that make sense? Well, I would take a screenshot, but I'm not near Logic right now :( - However, I don't think this method will help you....
I re-read your post, and see you want Logic to randomly position the regions on to one track...
Unfortunately, AFAIK, Logic does not have a feature that can do this 100% automatically. However, there is one method I would use when manually moving regions randomly, but I would advise you to backup your project first to make sure you can return to it as it is if you decide to ;)
- Set the Drag mode to 'Shuffle Left'.
- Drag a region and drop it over or on top of another region on the same track.
- It will be inserted to that position and all regions will shuffle to the left or right to accommodate it.
Hope that helps :)
