The note repeat feature on an MPC has become fundamental to beatmaking. It gives us the ability to repeat a note (at a certain rate) by only holding down a note (pad or key). This workflow works nicely on quick hi-hats or simple percussive hits.

Here is a quick way to get a note repeat in Logic Pro (almost as quick as you would on an MPC). In this video we will be using Logics’ built in Arpeggiator MIDI FX plugin to create a note repeat action.

Simply change the desired rate and hold down a note. Thats all there is to it.
