Today, Apple has announced a major Logic Pro X update, with a professional version of Live Loops, a completely redesigned sampling workflow, and new beat-making tools. The company states “With its collection of powerful creative features, Logic Pro X 10.5 will be a massive release for all musicians, including those producing electronic music.”

“The Mac and Logic Pro X are essential tools used by the world’s top musicians and producers to create the music that we all love,” remarks Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Apps Product Marketing. “Logic Pro X 10.5 represents the biggest update to Logic since the launch of Logic Pro X, with powerful new tools that will inspire every artist — from those just getting started with Logic, to those already using it to produce Grammy Award-winning albums. We can’t wait to hear what these artists create next.”

Live Loops

It appears that Apple is going after some Ableton-like functionality with Live Loops. Now Logic users can create music in new freeform and nonlinear ways. Loops, samples, and recordings can be organized into a new musical grid, where musicians can spontaneously perform and capture different arrangement ideas into the timeline. From there, tracks can be further refined using the usual features in Logic.

Remix FX enhances Live Loops with an exciting collection of electronic effects like Bitcrusher, filter, gater, and repeater that can be performed in real time over individual tracks or the entire song mix. Both features become even more powerful when using the free Logic Remote app, allowing users to pair their iPhone or iPad with their Mac to provide Multi-Touch control over Live Loops and Remix FX.

Sampler and Quick Sampler

Logic’s new Sampler is a powerful multisampler that enables sound designers to quickly create sophisticated instruments.

Sampler represents the next generation of the popular industry-standard EXS24 plug-in with an all-new modern design and expanded sound-shaping controls, while maintaining full backwards compatibility. Producers can use Sampler to create and edit sophisticated multisampled instruments, using elegant drag-and-drop workflows that automate complex production tasks.

Logic Quick Sampler

Quick Sampler makes it simple to turn any sound into a musical instrument instantly.

Quick Sampler is a fast and simple way to turn any individual sound into a playable instrument. Musicians can pick a sound from within Logic, the Finder, Voice Memos, or even record directly into Quick Sampler. With just a few clicks, an imported sample can be trimmed, looped, and played across a keyboard controller, with access to creative sound-shaping controls.

Better Beat Creation

Logic Step Sequencer

Logic’s new Step Sequencer is designed to make it easy to build original and creative beats.

The new Step Sequencer, Drum Synth, and redesigned Drum Machine Designer will help producers create original beats faster than ever.
