If you’re constantly selecting multiple tracks when editing in Logic, thinking there must be a better way, you’re right. The solution is using Groups. By assigning multiple tracks to a group, you’re able to control them collectively from a single track.
For mixing, Groups are arguably even more useful. Want to turn up the drums but keep the relationship between kick and snare? Try assigning you tracks to a Group.
In this Logic Tips video, Jono Buchanan explains and shows you how to set up Groups and goes through the settings appropriate for multitrack audio editing and mixing.
