If you want to learn how to make beats with Logic Pro X and all of its great features (drummer, channel strips, software instruments, effects plugins, etc.), this tutorial is for you!

In this video, JT from Delicate Beats shows you a bunch of cool and simple tricks to start making beats FAST and the PRO way 🙂

0:46 Step #1: Creating a new session and tracks. First let’s setup logic to make use of audio and midi, as well as start quick with Apple loops.

2:56 Step #2: Let’s discover the main features of the most important window in Logic Pro X: the arrange window. This is the hub. The arrange window let’s you arrange and sequence your beats, set the tempo, hit record, drag and drop Apple loops.

5:17 Step #3: In the arrange window, it is crucial to understand the basic building blocks of a musical composition: mesures or bars. This will dictate how to relate to our loops’ length and understand where to start key moments of a sequence, like a chorus, a verse, etc.

10:31 Step #4: The fun starts as soon as you begin dragging and dropping a few Apple loops of your liking. Apple loops are a great tool to draft ideas, get inspired, find a cool chord progression or add liveliness to a track.

13:04 Step #5: Let’s start personalizing our loops by learning to cut, copy and paste midi and audio information. By making the most out of the command-click tools, we start to learn to work like pros as we now have access to 2 tools at once through keyboard shortcuts.

20:12 Step #6: Let’s learn the basics of mixing and balancing: where to find and tweak volume and panning. This is the simplest yet most effective way to mix a track.

22:16 Step #7: One of the coolest and most powerful new features in Logic Pro X: the drummer. Apple really nailed this one. You can now layer drums with a real drummer, use his skills to create the perfect drum rolls to transition from in a super easy and intuitive way.

36:23 Step #8: Now we’re getting serious! It’s time to hit the keys and create our own chord progression and melodies. By understanding how to record midi sequences and how to edit the midi data, we finally unleash the true power of Logic Pro X. Because Logic comes bundled with a LOT of software instruments, you cannot go on with the tutorial unless you understand every bit of information in this part of the video 🙂

41:58 Step #9: I litteraly learned how to mix songs by using Logic’s built-in channel strips and tweaking them to my liking. In this part, i show you how to start off with a channel strip and how to add effects plugins to further enhance and mix your track.

So there you have it! Apple Loops, software synths, the basics of audio and midi editing. This should get any beginner going. The rest is trial and error as well as some magical errors along your producer’s journey…

**EP now available on Spotify, iTunes, and Bandcamp.**

This fiery 4-piece promises a rowdy, unbridled and all together good time that’ll leave the soles of your feet singing a tune of their own. Featuring a thunderous double-bass slapping alongside, soulful lead guitar, a freight-train rhythm, and a howling lead vocal all delivered in a style that defies pigeonholing but might be described as a rootsy amalgam of folk, country, blues and whiskey.

The animated video, by French illustrator CERËGA ( stars Snoop and Blakkamoore as aliens who come to earth to “infect” people with good vibes, then fly back to space after hosting a killer party inside a dormant volcano.
Of working with Snoop once more, BLAKKAMOORE says:
“It was an awesome experience. Imagine being in the studio with a legend humble enough to give you creative control, talented enough to accomplish whatever we set out to create and high
enough to keep things lit the whole time.”
