- sample accurate
Describes editors (such as the Sample Editor or Arrange window) that display or allow you to edit individual samples in an Audio Region.
- Sample Editor
An editor in Logic in which stereo or mono audio files are destructively cut, reversed, shortened, changed in gain, and processed in a number of other ways. The Sample Editor allows sample-accurate editing of an audio file.
- sampling rate
Refers to the number of times per second a digital audio file is sampled. When audio comes in through your sound card, analog-to-digital converters sample, or check, the signal's voltage level. Logic can record and edit audio at sampling rates ranging from 44.1 kHz (44,100 times per second) to 192 kHz.
- Scissors tool
A tool with which you divide Regions. It offers different options for dividing Audio Regions from those for MIDI Regions.
- Score Editor
Logic editor that deals with standard musical notation.
An onscreen layout of windows that you can save. Each window retains its position, size, and zoom settings. You can save up to 90 screensets for each song.
- Scroll in Play
A function similar to the Catch function, but instead of the SPL playing across the Arrange area's Regions, the Arrange area's Regions scroll past a stationary SPL, like tape scrolling past a playhead.
Moving the pointer back and forth (in a scrubbing motion) while playing back an Audio Region to locate a specific section.
An output on an audio channel that splits a portion of a channel's sound out and sends it through a system bus to another Audio Object.
A computer application that allows you to record both digital audio and MIDI data and blend the sounds together in a software mixing console.
A Drag mode that causes a Region to shuffle up to the Region immediately to its left or right, depending on the Shuffle mode selected. This ensures that one Region plays smoothly into the next with no drop in the track's audio.
Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers. These folks set up a synchronization system that divides time into hours, minutes, seconds, frames, and subframes.
A way to temporarily allow you to hear one or more selected tracks, events, or Regions without hearing others that aren't soloed.
- Solo tool
A tool that enables you to listen to selected Objects by themselves (click and hold the Object to do so).
A main Logic file that contains all references necessary to produce a final audio output.
- Song Position Line (SPL)
A vertical gray line on the Bar Ruler and in other horizontal time-based windows that indicates where you are in a song. In Play mode the SPL lets you hear that section of your song. You can position the SPL with the mouse, by clicking the Bar Ruler, or by entering bar numbers in a dialog.
- song template
An empty song file that is preconfigured with a set of empty Arrange window tracks designed for a specific purpose such as mastering, 24-track recording, or surround mixing.
- Standard Instrument
The simplest track playback Object. It transmits MIDI data over just one channel, which makes it perfect for connecting to an external mono-timbral MIDI device such as a digital effects unit.
- Standard MIDI file
A common file type that almost any MIDI sequencer can read. In Logic you can export selected MIDI Regions as Standard MIDI files.
Recording notes one at a time in a MIDI Region.
A hardware or software device used to generate sounds. Logic features several software synthesizers, including the ES1, ES2, EFM 1, ES E, ES P, and ES M.
