4. Using Logic’s Arrangement track
1 Open Global Tracks to reveal the Arrangement track. Hit the + button in order to create a new arrange marker, and drag the right edge out to the required length of your first song section. The default length for a new arrange marker would be eight bars. 2 New markers are titled automatically from a menu of existing names. Choose one that suits, or rename it by choosing Rename from the menu. You can also colour code regions by pressing Option-C and assigning a colour to each highlighted marker. 3 Construct the rest of your Arrangement track by hitting the + button, dragging new markers out to the required lengths and renaming them as you go. Each new marker will always appear ‘glued’ to the right-hand edge of the previous marker. 4 Now for the cool bit. To move a whole section from one place in the song to another, simply drag it along the Arrangement track to its new location. The other markers will snap together to fill the gap so that the new arrangement flows seamlessly. 5 To copy a marker – in order to create another chorus, say – hold down the Option key while dragging. The new copy will be placed before the start of the marker over which you release it. 6 Delete an arrange marker by hitting Backspace twice – first to delete the regions below it, then the marker itself. To delete markers without deleting the regions of the song that are associated with them, select Suspend Content Connection before hitting the button.
