Logic Pro X: Pack and unpack folders

Pack and unpack folders

You can pack selected regions into a folder, or create an empty folder and add regions to it.

Pack regions into a folder

  • Select the regions, then choose Functions > Folder > Pack Folder from the Tracks area menu bar.

    If the selected regions are all on the same track, the folder is created on that track. If the regions are located on different tracks, a new folder track is created.

Note: When moving a folder with a single content track between tracks of the same type, the folder contents play using the channel strip of the hosting track.

Create an empty folder

  • With no regions selected in the Tracks area, choose Functions > Folder > Pack Folder from the Tracks area menu bar.

    The new, empty folder contains tracks assigned to all channel strips from the current level.

Unpack a folder

  1. Select the folder.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Choose Functions > Folder > Unpack Folder to New Tracks from the Tracks area menu bar.

      Logic Pro creates new tracks on the same level that the folder was located on (below the former folder track).

    • Choose Functions > Folder > Unpack Folder to Existing Tracks from the Tracks area menu bar (or use the “Unpack Folder to Existing Tracks” key command).

      The regions contained within the folder are placed on tracks assigned to appropriate channel strips.
