Using MIDI to Control Ultrabeat’s Sequencer

Pattern performance can be influenced by incoming MIDI notes. This allows you to spontaneously interact with the step sequencer, making Ultrabeat an excellent live performance instrument. The way Ultrabeat reacts to MIDI control is determined by the chosen pattern, playback, and voice mute mode options.

All the creative pattern switching options discussed in this section are achieved through the use of MIDI note messages and can therefore be simply recorded, edited, arranged, and automated in Logic Express.
