- 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…
Join Scott Hirsch as he dives into Logic X's powerful new synth workstation, Alchemy. From there, you'll be guided through all the key features available in the newest feature set (10.2.1), including enhancements to Drum Machine Designer, new arrangement marker techniques, and techniques to back up and share your Logic projects with the outside world using the groundbreaking new integration with Gobbler and Apple Connect. Your workflow will be improved creatively as well, with a look at new overlapping recording modes for both cycle and non-cycle modes. Scott also explores to the ten new drummer personalities and Drum Machine Designer, as well as the improved Retro Synth and the brand-new Mellotron software instrument, powerful MIDI editing and sequencer features in the revamped Piano Roll Editor, and the enhanced Mixer (now with VCA faders and easy viewing of your Track Stack components). You'll see these and many more enhancements that make Logic Pro 10.1, 10.2, and 10.2.1 instant, must-have upgrades.
