Here's How To Quickly Comp Audio Takes In Logic Pro X

Compositing audio takes is an essential skill for crafting the perfect performance. In this video, Booker Edwards shows you how to do it in Logic Pro.  

Logic Pro is one of the most capable all-round DAWs on the market and its audio editing tools are especially powerful. In this short 4-minute video from the course Logic Pro FastTrack 201: Advanced Audio Editing Tips, Logic Pro expert Booker Edwards delves into one of the more advanced techniques - creating audio composite takes, or "comps". 

Booker uses a practical example of a multi-lane audio track that has been recorded in several passes, and then demonstrates how to use the comping tools like quick swipe, scissors and trimming to take the best parts of multiple takes and combine them into one perfect take. You'll see how to correct timing by moving different parts of takes around, and how to move comp sections between lanes. It's an easy-to-follow example that will help you when comping any kind of audio material for the perfect outcome! Check out the rest of the videos in the course to learn more advanced Logic Pro audio editing tips.
