Logic Pro X 10.1 update includes new sounds and features – an update for the beatmakers

Apple releases Logic Pro X 10.1 just in time to steal the show at NAMM without even being there! Classic Apple. Oh and did I mention Logic Pro X 10.1 adds many new features? Some of the new additions are Electronic based Drummers, the Drum Machine Designer and other beatmaker features like Note Repeat and Spot Erase. 

Here a video overview on my favourite new features:

The key new features in Logic Pro X 10.1
