Been working in Logic X for a few days and noticed something different from Logic 9 in the piano roll.  In LP9, when I've recorded a midi region, opened in piano roll, chosen a quantize setting (say "1/16 Swing E"), that setting will remain when I open other regions for editing.  It's easy to keep a consistent rhythm throughout the song that way. 



Now in LPX, quantize reverts back to 1/16 every time I open a new region and I have to remember to change it back to 1/16 Swing E every single time!  It's an extra step I have to do and very annoying once you realized you forgot to change it somewhere down the line.  Am I missing something?  Is there a way make this behaviour "stay" as in LP9?

Logic Pro X, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)

    Hi redmusichouse,

    Been having the same problem- I quantize the same way afterwards within the roll and you're right, this does really slow the process down. A few times I've even forgotten that it's quantizing back to 16ths and start fixing note timings in the piano roll before realizing it just wasn't set to what I'd wanted. If you happen to get any answers to this please let me know!



    P.S. This is off the subject but can't hurt to ask another LPX user.. I'm also looking for a way to customize the colors as we could with LP9 without acutually having to edit the plist file.. It's actually a pretty big deal to me as I'm color blind and the new color scheme they've chosen especially against the black background is a problem. If you happen to hear anything....
