Helpful Logic Pro Sound Design Tip – Remove Silence from Audio Regions

Hello everyone! I just discovered this nifty sound design trick on accident and wanted to share this with you guys.

Remove silence from Audio Regions is a trick you can use to immediately separate your recordings so that it’s easy and ready for layering. I know that this is what I’m going to be doing every time I am doing sound design from now on!

  1. Open the Browser and select the audio file you wish to remove silence from.

3. This brings up this nifty little window. Here you can let Logic know the threshold for your volume and what you consider a ‘silence’. It even politely asks how long it takes before it’s considered as ‘silent’. After setting your preferences, press the blue Okay button.Screen Shot 2018-10-04 at 1.07.40 PM (2)

4. Select Yes. Screen Shot 2018-10-04 at 1.07.44 PM (2)

5. BAM. Just like that, we were able to take all Silence out of the audio region. Saves tens of hours of going through each transient to figure out which clip I want to use! No more cutting.Screen Shot 2018-10-04 at 1.07.48 PM (2)
