California based tech giant Apple has upgraded Logic Pro X app to version 10.5 for Mac. The major update includes professional version of Live Loops, new beat making tools, and redesigned sampling workflow which will help improve productivity and creativity for producers, artists, and more.
Logic Pro X 10.5 for Mac
Live Loops – freedom to produce music
New Live Loops allow creators to produce music in new non-linear and freeform ways on in Logic Pro X. A new musical grid helps in organizing loops, recordings, and samples in an open way, so that musicians can freely play or create various arrangements on the timeline and perfect their melodies by using other production tools in the app.
Users can also use Remix FX to improve Live Loops. With the Logic Remote app, users can connect their iPhone or iPad with Mac to navigate Live Loops and Remix FX using multi-touch controls.
Re-designed Sampler and Quick Sampler
Now musicians can easily work on the new Sampler and sound shaping controls to produce and edit complex multi-sampled instruments via drag and drop workflows. In addition, Logic Pro X also offers Quick Sampler to directly record or import sound clips or recordings from other apps on Mac like Voice Memos, to edit and loop them using a keyboard controller and sound-shaping controls.
New Step Sequencer, Drum Synth and Drum Machine Designer
For electronic music and hip hop producers, Logic Pro X now offers three new creative tools to produce original beats: Step Sequencer, Drum Synth and Drum Machine Designer.
- With editing tools and pattern based creation style, Step Sequencer creates original base lines, drum beats and other melodic parts by offering musicians control of note velocity, skip, playback direction, gate, randomization and repeat, in a classic drum machine workflow interface.
- Drum Synth provides a variety of software generated kick drums, toms, percussion and snares sounds with individual sound shaping control. Thus, music producers can fine tune their preferred parts and blend them with other samples.
- The new Drum Machine designer works with the new sampling and beat programming workflows to build electronic drum kit on the app. Imported from Quick Sampler and Drum Synth, music producers can easily and quickly edit each sound in the drum kit to be played in real time or with Step Sequencer.
Apple’s Logic Pro X is already a popular creative tool for professional musicians and helps to produce, combine, edit and play tunes, melodies, beats and much more. Grammy Award winners Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X, Dua Lipa and Travis Scott are a few renowned artists who praise the creative process of the app on Mac. With this major new update, Apple has made using Logic Pro X easier and faster to use. Read the complete press release here.
The updated version of the app is already receiving praise for a comprehensive music creation experience.
