Hi,
the scripter in Logic Pro MidiFX is quite powerful.
The factory content is comprehensive.
But I wonder if there are some third party offers for it.
Haven't found anything...
Or should I learn Java Script language?
:help:

If you're familiar with any of the C family of programming languages, you should find JavaScript familiar.

"JavaScript: The Good Parts" by Douglas Crockford, published by O'Reilly, is a great introduction. It omits the clunky and ill-conceived parts of the language. If it had been around when I got started I wouldn't have had to un-learn a lot of bad habits.

Check this site; was down/out-of-business for a while but looks like it may return; had lots of cools stuff:
https://www.logicscripts.net

Bunch more here:
https://www.logicprohelp.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=45

Both of those came up right away with this google search, along with other useful links:
logic pro scripter plugin

Eg:

It's funny - that "good parts" Javascript book is literally the shortest full-size O'Reilly book I've ever seen. What does that tell us about the language? :D

I would recommend Marijn Haverbeke's Eloquent Javascript which is free online.

Thanks for your recommendations!
Thirty years ago I programmed with C.
Seems that I should revive my (limited) abilities...

Start with General javascript but ignore all the stuff related to web browsers, which basically simplifies javascript study down to an afternoon honestly if you know how to program already. Javeascript lets you do a lot of crafty little things you can’t do easily in c. It’s a very simple Untyped language and quite nice actually I have come to enjoy it.

For learning LPX scripter you can have a look at the logicpro effects guide (see help menu in lpx). There is a section on scripter that covers the midi related api almost entirely but a few idiosyncrasies you have to just find out about through trial and error and googling around.

I’ve spent a lot of time with it in the past couple years and pushed it about as far as it should be pushed, feel free to pm me with questions or ask on here or on the logicpro forum midifx section.
