A more audible click track

Metronome settings in Logic Pro X

Ever wondered how to change the metronome in Logic Pro X to a more sensible and audible one? Here´s a tip to stop that Klopfgeist from haunting your projects:

  1. Clone these settings in Project Settings – Metronome (the Midi click settings on the right is NOT necessary, it´s the key settings on the left that are important).

  2. I made a ready-to-go channel strip setting you can download.  Copy the file to your desktop, open Finder, press ⇧⌘ + g and paste:
    ~/Music/Audio Music Apps/Channel Strip Settings/Instrument
  3. Now drag the file from your desktop to the above folder.
  4. (Re)start Logic. In a project, open the mixer, choose to view ALL tracks
    Mixer view
  5. Select the channel strip named “Click”. Press “Setting”, and you should be able to see my custom metronome template called Metronome. Click it.
  6. Press R to test it. You´re welcome.

He has used computers for production since the age of 16, and has been a Mac/Logic Pro user since 2010, when he did "the big switch". He has never looked back. Andreas´mind is almost constantly occupied with music, and chances are great you´ll find him in some studio, in some akward hunched position with a big smile on his face.
