8 Bar Grid Lines For Arrangement

Hi everyone,

I was recently watching a YouTube tutorial (Zen World) about song arrangement and how having your grid set to 8 bars can help when arranging 8 bar loops into a full song arrangement.

The logic being that you don’t need to see any 1/16th divisions, etc when you are at this stage (for EDM) you only need to drag 8 bar loop regions around the grid.

Great idea I thought.. except I can’t seem to set up the grid like this in Logic? Divisions in the control bar doesn’t accommodate for this setting.

Anybody any suggestions for if this is possible in Logic Pro?

Just used this method for arranging a track and it worked really well. Helped me focus on track flow with regards to keeping things interesting. A good rule to bear in mind for any EDM/House music = small change after 8 bars, big change after 16 bars. Maybe a bit too formulaic but a good guideline.
