#LogicProX #Tutorial #BeatMaking
Here is a breakdown of a trap/drake type beat I made in logic pro x using various virtual software instruments, as well as some midi effects. Lastly I show how I have tracked the beat down and used compressors for the final mix. If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I’ll do my best to answer.
