Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Crafting beats in real time, part of Logic Pro X New Features.
- Back in the day,…the MPC, an old school drum machine sampler,…changed the way beats were made,…and the Logic Pro 10.1 update nods…at one of the methods you could use…to compose a beat on the NPC.…In this movie, we'll explore the very NPC-like…Note Repeat and Spot Erase feature.…We'll also look at the new Smart Quantize tool…for further MIDI editing and tweaking.…Let's make a new software instrument track…and put the Drum Machine Designer setting…Trap Kit on there.…Go ahead and click New Track,…Software Instrument,…I'll keep Open Library checked,…and I'll click Create.…
Now, in the Library, I'm gonna navigate over…to Drum Machine Designer,…and we have this Trap Door kit.…So let's load that up.…And I can close the Library.…So here I have a cycle region…between bars five and nine selected,…and I want to add a little drum fill in there.…So one way I could do that…is I could try to record it in rapidly…by clicking on the MIDI keyboard,…or I could draw it in the with the new Brush Tool,…but I want to show you a new way…
