How to use Logic Pro X’s Sampler to create your own instruments

The latest Logic Pro X update ushered in a slew of new features that have people buzzing.

In a recent post, we discussed the overhauled Drum Machine Designer and how it can be used to easily create custom drum kits. Today, we turn our attention towards Sampler, Logic Pro X’s new native sampler instrument / synth which has supplanted the old EXS24.

In the tutorial video above, we take a look at the workflow for creating a multi-sampled instrument via Sampler, using a melodic sample found on Splice Sounds. Prior to the 10.5 update, creating our own multi-sampled instrument with the EXS24 was a bit more of an undertaking, perhaps distracting from the music making process. Watch and learn how easy it is now to get up and going with your own custom instrument, using Sampler in conjunction with other features offered in the latest iteration of Logic Pro X.

Do you have any questions on a specific concept that was covered in our tutorial of Drum Machine Designer? What’s your favorite feature in Logic Pro X’s 10.5 update? Let us know in the comments below.
