The last few updates have been absolutely game-changing for us Logic users. There are truly no limits now to how you can approach your songs now in Logic Pro.
One major game-changing update was the introduction of Live Loops. Before Live Loops, you basically had to arrange your song as you wrote it in the tracks area.
But sometimes you just need a place to catch your ideas. Who knows what the arrangement might be? You just know you have a lead idea here, or maybe a drum idea over there.
Live Loops is brilliant because it’s a scratchpad for catching your ideas.
Its beauty lies in its simplicity:
- You record independent ideas into separate cells in the Live Loops grid
- Then you can test-drive different ideas by clicking on any Cell across the grid
- And the whole system plays back on a loop
This allows you to feel out your ideas before you commit to an arrangement.
It’s easy to assume that something like Live Loops only lends itself to loop-based music and beatmaking. But I’m telling you, that is so far from the truth.
That’s why in today’s video I take on Live Loops in a more “traditional” sense. That is, recording only guitar-based ideas into the Live Loops grid.
From there I’ll show you:
- How to Record Audio into Cell Take Folders
- How to adjust the Cell/Loop start and end times
- How to Quantize your Audio Cells
- How to add Automation to your Cells
And much more 🙂
So watch me lay down ideas in the Live Loops grid in today’s video above.
