Logic Pro 10.5 was just updated, and it makes a lot of sense with iPad. Basically, you get all the pro production tools you had before, but with new tools for electronic music production.
- Live Loops – being able to cue, play, and perform loops, live, and have them recorded into Logic. This is very useful with the iPad Logic Remote. It works a little like a Novation Launchpad.
- Sampler and Quick Sampler – Sampler lets you edit complex multi-sampled sounds with a visual interface. Quick Sampler is about taking a sound and turning it into an instrument as fast as possible.
- Beat Creation – new tools for programming beats using an interface that’s kind of similar to a drum machine. There are drum synths, a step sequencer, and more.
- Logic Remote – the free iPad app that lets you control, trigger, and perform loops.
“Logic Pro X has always been my one and only DAW. The workflow is unmatched, and the built-in sound libraries have been essential to my music from the beginning. Now with the addition of Quick Sampler and Drum Machine Designer, I’m getting back hours I used to spend in the studio building sounds and kits. This lets me spend more time writing new verses and editing 70-take vocals.” — Finneas O’Connell, Grammy Award-winning producer: Billie Eilish, “Bad Guy” and the album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”
And if you open up Logic Pro 10.5 and go to file > new from template > demo projects & there’s the Ocean Eyes project. You can edit all of Finneas’ work right there.
Logic Pro 10.5 has changed the way that I produce. Quick sampler, Drum Machine Designer are two of the smartest plugins I’ve ever used. It’s out today and you should do yourself a favor and download it. FREE to all current logic users— FINNEAS (@finneas) May 12, 2020
What kind of sounds can you get using the new tools and iPad as remote for triggering them?
