Live Loops helps users to create music in new free-form and nonlinear ways. Recordings, samples and loops can be arranged in grids and users can easily perform and capture into the timeline. Remix FX enhances live loops, both the features become even more powerful when using with the free Logic Remote App. Logic Remote App helps in pairing your iPhone and iPad with Mac for multi-touch control over Live Loops and Remix FX.
Sampler and Quick Sampler
Sampler represents the next generation of the popular industry-standard EXS24 plug-in. Creators can use the drag and drop feature of workflows in sampler to create high end multi sampled instruments. Quick Sampler is a fast and simple way to turn any individual sound into a playable instrument.
Logic Pro X 10.5 gives a collection of tools to work together and create original beats. Step Sequencer is a new editor to program drum beats, bass lines, and melodic parts using an interface inspired by classic drum machine workflows. Drum Machine Designer is the tool for building drum kits. Each drum pad can host the new Quick Sampler and Drum Synth plug-ins, making it easy to edit and shape individual sounds within a drum kit. After kits are created, they can be played in real time, or programmed with Step Sequencer.
