About Logic Pro X Drummer

The new Drummer Tool in Logic Pro X is really useful for producers wanting to create a simple, or complex drum beat really quickly and without much hard work.

Created using some of the industry’s best session drummers and recording engineers, Drummer delivers impeccably performed, natural-sounding drums. It can listen to any selected track and come up with the perfect complementary groove.

About Drum Kit Designer

While Drummer does the playing, Drum Kit Designer provides deeply sampled, realistic-sounding drum kits. Thousands of varied strikes were recorded from each piece. The result? Extensive layers of samples that faithfully re-create the character and sound of the originals — including how they respond to the nuances of a drummer’s performance.

You can swap pieces to build a custom kit, choosing from a diverse variety of snares, kicks, toms, hi-hats and cymbals. Finesse the sound of each drum by adjusting the tuning, dampening and gain. And enable stereo or mono room and overhead mics. Each kit comes with its own unique mix.
