The logical choice

With Live Loops and any Launchpad, you can activate cells to experiment with arrangement ideas, and record your performances. Cells can contain one-shots, loops, MIDI patterns and automation data, and can be dragged-and-dropped or recorded live into Logic’s tracks area, to build song arrangements quickly.
