Live LoopsFor spontaneous composition.
Live Loops is a dynamic way to create and arrange music in real time. Kick off your composition by adding loops, samples, or your recorded performances into a grid of cells. Trigger different cells to play with your ideas without worrying about a timeline or arrangement. Once you find combinations that work well together you can create song sections, then move everything into the Tracks area to continue production and finish your song.
Bring DJ-style effects and transitions to an individual track or an entire mix with a collection of stutters, echoes, filters, and gating effects.
Control features like Live Loops, Remix FX, and more from your iPad or iPhone using Multi-Touch gestures.
Live Loops supports Launchpad for a tactile experience. Use an 8x8 grid of colorful and expressive pads to dynamically trigger cells, input notes, adjust mixer levels and more.
Step SequencerPure beat poetry.
Step Sequencer is inspired by classic drum machines and synthesizers. Using the Step Sequence editor, quickly build drum beats, bass lines, and melodic parts — and even automate your favorite plug-ins. Add sophisticated variations to your pattern with a wide range of creative playback behaviors. Use Note Repeat to create rolling steps, Chance to randomize step playback, and Tie Steps Together to create longer notes.
Logic RemoteTouch and flow.
Logic Remote lets you use your iPhone or iPad to control Logic Pro on your Mac. Use Multi-Touch gestures to play software instruments, mix tracks, and control features like Live Loops and Remix FX from anywhere in the room. Swipe and tap to trigger cells in Live Loops. And tilt your iPhone or iPad up and down and use its gyroscope to manipulate filters and repeaters in Remix FX.New
Sequence your beats
Program drum patterns and melodic parts from your iPad or iPhone. Create dynamic rhythmic performances, and automate your plug-ins — all with a quick tap of your finger.
Control your mix from wherever you are in the room — whether that’s next to your computer or on the couch — with Multi-Touch faders.
Pair and play
Use a variety of onscreen instruments, such as keyboards, guitars, and drum pads, to play any software instrument in Logic Pro from your iPad or iPhone.
Create at the speed of sound with key commands in Logic Remote. Choose from curated commands for popular workflows, or create your own custom set.
We redesigned and improved our most popular plug-in — the EXS24 Sampler — and renamed it Sampler. The new single-window design makes it easier to create and edit sampler instruments while remaining backward compatible with all EXS24 files. An expanded synthesis section with sound-shaping controls brings more depth and dynamics to your instruments. The reimagined mapping editor adds powerful, time-saving features that speed the creation of complex instruments. Use the zone waveform editor to make precise edits to sample start/end, loop ranges, and crossfades. And save hours of tedious editing with new drag-and-drop hot zones.
Quick Sampler is a fast and easy way to work with a single sample. Drag and drop an audio file from the Finder, Voice Memos, or anywhere within Logic Pro. Or record audio directly into Quick Sampler using a turntable, microphone, musical instrument, or even channel strips playing in Logic Pro. In a few steps, you can transform an individual sample into a fully playable instrument. And with Slice Mode, you can split a single sample into multiple slices — perfect for chopping up vocals or breaking up and resequencing drum loops.
This powerful but easy-to-use plug-in creates synthesized drum sounds. Choose from a diverse collection of drum models and shape their sound with up to eight simple controls. Drum Synth is also directly integrated into the bottom of the Drum Machine Designer interface — giving you a focused set of sound-shaping controls.
Drum Machine Designer
Redesigned to be more intuitive and integrated, Drum Machine Designer lets you effortlessly build electronic drum kits. Apply individual effects and plug-ins on each discrete drum pad to experiment with sound design and beat-making in new ways. You can also create a unique layered sound by assigning the same trigger note to two different pads. To help you quickly edit sounds, Quick Sampler and Drum Synth are directly integrated into the Drum Machine Designer interface.
DrummerCompose to the beat of a different percussionist.
Using Drummer is like hiring a session drummer or collaborating with a highly skilled beat programmer. Create organic-sounding acoustic drum tracks or electronic beats with the intelligent technology of Drummer. Choose from dozens of drummers who each play in a different musical genre, and direct their performances using simple controls.
Compositions and PerformancesYour studio is always in session.
Logic Pro turns your Mac into a professional recording studio able to handle even the most demanding projects. Capture your compositions and performances — from tracking a live band to a solo software-instrument session — and flow them into your songs.
The ultimate way to record.
Seamless punch recording. Automatic take management. Support for pristine 24-bit/192kHz audio. Logic Pro makes it all easy to do — and undo. You can create projects with up to 1000 stereo or surround audio tracks and up to 1000 software instrument tracks, and run hundreds of plug-ins. It’s all you need to complete any project.
Get the most out of MIDI.
Logic Pro goes beyond the average sequencer with an advanced set of options that let you record, edit, and manipulate MIDI performances. Transform a loose performance into one that locks tight into the groove using region-based parameters for note velocity, timing, and dynamics. Or tighten up your MIDI performances while preserving musical details like flams or chord rolls with Smart Quantize.
As your song develops, Logic Pro helps organize all your ideas and select the best ones. Group related tracks, audition alternate versions, and consolidate multiple tracks. Lightning-fast click-and-drag comping helps you build your best performance from multiple takes.
Go off-script and stay on beat with Smart Tempo, a way to effortlessly mix and match music and beats without worrying about the original tempo. Record freely without a click track. And easily combine and edit MIDI and audio tracks — from vinyl samples to live instruments to multitrack audio stems — with constant or variable tempo.

Quickly manipulate the timing and tempo of your recording with Flex Time. Easily move the individual beats within a waveform to correct drum, vocal, guitar, or any other kind of track without slicing and moving regions.
Edit the level and pitch of individual notes quickly and easily with Flex Pitch. Roll over any note and all parameters are available for tweaking.
Create alternate versions of a track or multiple grouped tracks, and switch between them at any time to audition different options. Create, store, and select from different edits and arrangements of track regions to make it easier to experiment with various creative ideas.
Takes and Quick Swipe Comping
Click and drag to choose the best sections of each take to create a seamless comp, complete with transition-smoothing crossfades. Save multiple comps and switch among them to pick the one you like best.
Consolidate multiple related tracks into a single track. Wimbledon to west croydon. Use a Summing Stack as a quick way to create submixes. Or create layered and split instruments.
Create as many alternate versions of a project as you’d like, each with its own name and settings but sharing the same assets — efficiently saving storage space. Load any version to make changes without compromising your original.
Track Groups and VCA Faders
Manage large mixes with Track Groups and VCA faders. Assign any selection of channels to a track group, then control the levels or other parameters of all tracks in the group from any single channel in the group.

Upgrading to macOS 10.13 High Sierra will break Logic Pro X on some systems with both Logic Pro 9 and X.
Apple moved the user directory out of ~/Library/Application Support/Logic folder with the introduction of Logic Pro X.
Those who installed Logic Pro X on a new system got a new folder called Audio Music Apps and everything from now on could be accessed from this directory.
Some of us that have used Logic Pro 9 and installed Logic Pro X on that same system had instead a directory hard link created to mimic the contents of the old ~/Library/Application Support/Logic folder. This way we could access all our old custom samples and Channel Strip Settings with the added benefit of being able to work with both Logic Pro 9 and X in tandem.
Enter macOS 10.3 High Sierra.
The latest macOS from Apple converts your SSD system drive automatically from HFS+ to APFS –the latest file system– without asking, and this has at least one downside for us with the hard linked directories.
APFS does not support hard links and the links from ~/Library/Application Support/Logic and ~/Music/Audio Music Apps will break on those systems using this method of mirroring.
APFS will automatically convert hard links to Finder Aliases but those will be orphaned (I’m not sure if this is a bug in the first iteration of High Sierra or if this is expected behavior?).
This will totally break Logic Pro X since it can not find some of the content it needs to function properly.
The good thing is this content isn’t deleted from your hard drive even though Apple has hidden it. The location of the content is now inside a folder inside /.HFS+ Private Directory Data?.
This folder will have a directory name of `dir_` followed by a some digits. You can safely recover your content and move it to the expected location.
Use this command in the Terminal to reveal the hidden directory and view it in a finder window:
open /.HFS+ Private Directory Data?/
- I would first and foremost advice to be patient and not to update to High Sierra right away. Many older apps will not work, including Logic Pro 9.
- If you absolutely want or need to update you can do so without converting your system drive to APFS. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of advantages to APFS but it’s a new file system that may need a few tweaks here and there. It will also save you from some of these head-scratchers. You can use this method if you want to upgrade to macOS 10.13 High Sierra but don’t want to change the file system from HFS+ to APFS:
- Download High Sierra from the Mac App Store
- Quit the installer when it prompts you to install.
- Launch the Terminal and type the following:
'/Applications/Install macOS High Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall' --converttoapfs NO
- Proceed with the installation.
- Another method could be to break the hard link for /Music/Audio Music Apps and for ~/Library/Application Support/Logic prior to the macOS install. This would save you the annoyance of hunting down the hidden directory after the fact.
