Yup! LOGIC X has released an update. It seems like a while since the last one so I was stoked to see what was new. The good news is they didn't do anything drastic to the interface. The bad news is that the new upgrades are really built for for folks doing electronic music and for folks doing Rap/HipHop. Of course, these upgrades can be used by anyone for anything, it's just a matter of finding how to use them in your workflow. Honestly, it looks like they are trying to turn LOGIC in to ABLETON.

ANY LOGIC X USERS OUT THERE? WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE UPGRADE?

Yes these looks absolutely amazing!

If you want some fresh metal drums sound that don't sound like EZdrummer/Steven Slate - you can now just buy a sample pack from any where and drag and drop them into your project - and boom you have a new drum plugin that no ones else uses!!! 😲 Heck, you can even just ask some drummer online for their drums-only recording, and logic pro will do all the slicing and sampling for you at the touch of a button!!

Or how about grabbing the drums-only intro from your favorite recording, and then use the exact same recordings as a drummer instrument!

A lot of the the looping functionality they have added supports audio so you can get super creative with your riffing / leads.

This update feels like winning the lottery!

I was sorta hoping for an update on the guitar sim that's built in, but no such luck. I'm really glad they are still developing the app smile.gif I love Logic and I'd hate to see it fall by the wayside. Please do share if you put something together using the features you just mentioned. Maybe even a vid about it?

I haven't upgraded yet, but this video shows how cool this is:

When first saw the update I also shared your thought, not serving much for a guitar player. To be fair though Logic has always been favored for EDM, soundtrack etc. type artists. All friends I know of around me who are logic users prefer it for its midi etc. type advantages, there's even one doing midi with logic then go audio on reaper.

But for guitar players who also wants to make their own songs or backing tracks, it can be pretty useful. Kris pointed out the sampler, I can also point out the loop stuff. First here's a video of someone making a song from loops just by almost randomly clicking(jump to 1.30);



But with the right loop collection, one can make rock type backings too. There are a lot of kontakt based loop libraries sold out there, Uebershall uses its own player (looks similar to apple loops) and offers interesting metal, rock loops too; https://www.ueberschall.com/products/constr...Date/20.en.html

So probably not you as you're familiar with all steps of a production, but the guy who's focused on only guitar and don't know much about midi it may be a good solution.

I watched the vid but didnt' seem to see examples of what you were talking about in terms of creating your own drum sets, having logic chop things up for you etc? It seemed more like ableton than logic with the cells and live sample triggering. All that is cool of course, just seems more geared to EDM/hip hop than rock. I"m sure more vids are going to be coming out every day. I'll try to keep on them and find the bits you mentioned and share them in this thread.

QUESTION: ANYONE UPGRADED TO THE NEW LOGIC X YET?

I'm sure I'll start digging it as I get more familiar with it smile.gif It does seem pretty heavy on trying to be ableton with the same sort of cell window and live sample triggering and such. Does make it easy to make backings with the right sample samp pack. Just hit play and trigger a few samples and bam you've got a backing smile.gif I'm guessing all the EDM folks will love this.

Yeah the loop functionality should be amazing for quickly arranging and creating backing tracks.

A lot of our more modern sounding lessons use samples/looping.

Sampler, looping and lots of new tools for producing! I've also seen similar updates on Cubase 10.5 (the software that I use) and I'm extremely happy! smile.gif
