Drag and drop samples into Logic to quickly create a playable instrument

The process of creating instruments and drum kits can take a lot of time and effort. Logic Pro allows you to quickly create playable sampler instruments by dragging in audio files from anywhere on your computer. Simply drag a collection of audio files to the bottom of the track list to get a menu of options for sampler instruments. When you choose Drum Machine Designer, every sample will be placed on its own pad with separate channel strips and Quick Sampler for every pad.
