Logic Pro - Macro Megathread (2022)

As there are so many of them, I update these macros as and when requested. Judging by the fact that I now call it "Strip Search - Patch" rather than "Stack", it's quite possible that I adjusted the AppleScript when Logic updated a while back, and didn't upload a new version to the thread.

I just tested this version and it works for me. Have a go.

Thank you, yes, that worked for me too. Clever stuff. I only had to change the image for "Find Image - Right Edge of Selected Finder Item" to suit my preference of "Light" appearance for MacOS.

Glad to hear it works now!

If only Apple would get their act together and give us a decent browser rather than more "AI" nonsense.

Don't get me started..!

Really enjoying this macro!

I was trying to make a similar macro for the export tracks function. Unfortunately I can't seem to make this work based on the 'Bounce Project macro'. I just lack the knowledge on how to built such a macro. Could you help me out also with this one?

Thanks in advance!

Here's a macro that will export all selected tracks by cycle range to a named folder on the Desktop:

Hi Neil,

Thanks (as always) for the quick reply! However this macro doesn't give me the result I had in mind.

The only thing I would like KM to do is to open up the export destination folder after exporting tracks. I do understand that, to make that possible you'll have to automate the whole export process.
I would like to automate that after I click the 'export' button at the export window, so that I can choose the export settings with each export.

@kevinpatrick Ah yes, of course. Sorry, there are a few conversations going on at once here...

Bit of a niche one, but...

12/8 is a time signature I find myself writing in quite often, and can be felt, in practical terms, as 4/4 with a triplet feel. When I start an idea, I'd like to set the project tempo using tap-tempo on the quarter-note pulse, but this doesn't work with 12/8 as there are technically six quarter-notes to a bar, and the pulse is actually dotted quarter notes. Still with me?

I can tap the quarter note pulse and then trigger this macro which will calculate the correct tempo that equates to 12/8 with the same pulse. Like I said, it's a bit niche.

hi, how you did it?

hello, How do I find the click co-ordinates for different colours? thank you !

There are a few ways, but you could use a tool like this:

You'll get a result like this:

...and you can use the numbers in the Colour Submacro like this:

Instance__ColourWindow[1] + 219
Instance__ColourWindow[2] + 106
