Why stretch a MIDI sequence in Logic Pro X

  • I like playing around in a key and to record everything – regardless of timing and rhythm.
  • Usually my recordings are too fast.
  • When I find a nice and suitable sequence for ambient sounds, I will cut it out to a new sequence and stretch that for long sustain and slow tempo.
