Nudging can be used to make small adjustments to the timing of your regions, as well as rhythmically move regions around the Logic Pro workspace. Whether you’re looking to move a MIDI recording, a vocal sample or an entire track, nudging is a clever tool that can speed up workflow and help you build your Logic projects more efficiently.
