Features of Logic Pro
Let us now have a look at some amazing features that make Logic Pro app unique as compared to other music editing tools.
#1. Wide Range of Editors and Tools
You can now record, edit MIDI or audio using a wide range of diverse editors and tools. Now you don’t have to worry about using multiple programs and tools. You can find everything you need in this music software app. I loved how I didn’t have to shift between apps and tools to get the work done.
#2 Flex Time and Flex Pitch
We often find out-of-tune vocals and melodies that need to be changed when we look at recorded audio clips. This can be quite hard but with the Logic Pro app, you can now get everything done with the Flex Pitch tool. Flex Pitch can help you tune and change melodies of any recorded audio clips. You can also change the timing and tempo of any recording using Flex Time. These two tools have done a lot for me when editing my tracks.
#3. Smart Tempo
Smart Tempo now lets you import any audio file in Logic music software. Once you import it, you can incorporate the tempo into any project BPM you might be working on. This is where technology and music have shown that when combined, they’re the best.
#4. Logic Remote
When you’re working on your Logic Pro X, you might be scared of not being able to access it elsewhere. Well, that’s not the case with Logic for PC. You can now perform, mix and use your Logic Pro on your iPhone or iPad using just the Logic Remote.
#5. Make Your Own Beats
You can also use the Drum Machine Designer to make fresh custom kits. You can add, remove, make, and modify your own custom beats. If you’re a mad drummer like me who like savvy beats in your tracks, then this is definitely for you.
#6. Wide Range of Tracks
Quite often, I’ve had to use various apps or tools to make different genres of beats. However, with Logic Pro X, you can choose any type of acoustic, hip hop, or even electronic drum tracks. The beat library has over 33 distinct drummers that can help you perform unique grooves.
#7. Sound Library
Logic Pro has the largest sound library with over 4,300 instrument patches, 1,800 sampled instruments, and more than 10,000 Apple loops. These beats cover a wide range of genres and give you better control over what exactly you want in your final track.
