Finger snaps in Logic Pro X

February 26, 2018

This post is short and sweet.

For anyone looking for finger snaps in Logic Pro X, they can be found in the library under Percussion > Performance Patches > Claps and Snaps Performance.

Claps run C2 through A2 by half-step.
Snaps run C3 through D3 by half-step.
There is also a stomp at F3.

To notate as a single line:

  1. Select your snap track.
  2. In the score, choose Layout > Show Staff Styles
  3. In the dialog, choose New > Mapped Style
  4. Click the name
  5. Name it something useful like Finger Snaps
  6. Change high and low to C3 or C#3 orD3, whichever snap works for your piece.
  7. In the bottom row, enter 2 for position. Logic Pro will change it to +1, but that’s okay.
  8. In the bottom row, change Drum Group to Bongos.
  9. Close the dialog.
  10. In the Region inspector, set the staff style to #Finger Snap.

After you add a note, you may wish to replace the note head with an X. You can do this as follows:

  1. In the part box, choose the section with the X, O, filled triangle, and filled oval.
  2. Click the X
  3. Pencil-click the note

Hope this helps.
