How to use Smart Controls in Sunday Mix for Logic Pro X

Using Smart Controls is the simple solution to making your mix sound fantastic. Check out the video or the details below to learn how to use them:

When you load Sunday Mix, you will be able to see the Inspector window at the far left of the screen, the Smart Controls window at the bottom of the screen, and the Notepad at the far right. If you ever close out of these windows, just click their respective button in the top toolbar to make them visible.

The center section of your screen is the Workspace. This is where you will do most of your editing. There is also another important window that is not visible, and that is the Mixer. You can either toggle between the Smart Controls window and the Mixer window by clicking the Window buttons in the top toolbar, or using the keyboard commands “B” for Smart Controls, and “X” for Mixer.

With Smart Controls, we’ve programmed some of the most common parameters for worship - style mixing in the Smart Controls window of each track. Just turn the respective knobs for each parameter you would like to change, and you never have to open the plug-ins. On the other hand, if you would like to dig in to the plug-ins, they are accessible at any time via the Inspector window on the left, or the Mixer window.

In the Workspace, you can expand the Sub Mix track stacks to view all the tracks, and scroll through each one to view the Smart Controls options on every track. Some of the tracks will have different controls available, so feel free to experiment with different combinations of effects.
