I'd recommend checking out the blog post I linked to about the Marquee tool. This should give you some similar functionality to the PT Selection tool.
Also check out Olav's workflow tricks (videos 06, 07, 08) here:
Next, open the Key Commands window and search for "Marquee". There's commands there to move the beginning or end of the Marquee selection to the playhead.
Also I use left/right arrow to move the end of the Marquee selection area, and Shift-left/right arrow to move the beginning...
Fades work differently in Logic. I think this is an area where PT trumps Logic... What you can do is select the audio region and in the Inspector (next to Fade In/Fade Out) is an empty space. Double-click there and enter a value, e.g. 80 seems to be good for a 2 frame fade when frame rate is set to 25fps.... 67 is about 2 frames at 30fps in Logic.
So, for example, I would encourage you to set up the following key commands:
- Nudge Region/Event position RIGHT by SMPTE frame.
- Nudge Region/Event position LEFT by SMPTE frame.
Also right click on the "Region Inspector" and choose "Region Inspector Float" which you can move to wherever is more convenient.
Now, use the key command to nudge the region as desired by frame, double click on the Inspector float Fade In/Out areas and enter the value and press Enter.
Not as quick as PT for this kind of work.... byw, if you want to eye-ball this... you can set a number of different preset zoom levels (look up the recall / save as Zoom in the KC window). This gives you instant zoom to, for example, sample level if needed...
Hope this helps somewhat. Let me know if you have any other questions :)
