Using the Transport Bar

The Transport bar spans the entire lower edge of the Arrange window. You can use it to move through your project and start recording. It contains buttons that will be immediately familiar if you’ve used a tape recorder or CD/DVD player, such as Play, Rewind, Pause, and so on. The Transport bar also incorporates a number of features that simplify tasks you will perform in Logic Pro, such as recording over a repeatedly cycled section, or listening to a part in isolation.

The Transport bar consists of three parts:

Figure. Transport bar.

You can alter the Transport bar by adding or removing buttons and displays, providing faster access to the functions you need most often. You can also open an independent SMPTE or Bar display window. For more information, see Hiding or Showing the Transport Bar.
