Learn how to make a trap beat with Logic Pro and Amadeus Code

Make a quick trap track with Logic Pro and the Amadeus Code app

Amadeus Code is an artificial intelligence powered songwriting assistant.  Create inspiration, song, and melodies instantly and infinitely.  In today’s demo, we learn how to make a trap beat with Logic Pro by importing MIDI files from the Amadeus Code app.

With Amadeus Code, the creation process starts within the app (until we release our VST/AU plugin) but can easily continue in Logic Pro by exporting MIDI files from the app.

Let’s get from this:

to this:

in just a few steps!

First, Open Exported MIDI Files

Here’s what you’ll see in the exported folder.

  1.  Harmony MIDI
  2.  Melody MIDI
  3.  .m4a Audio

To import the MIDI files to Logic Pro, create a new song and drag and drop the 2 MIDI files onto the song or just double-click on the MIDI file.

Looking good so far!

Next, Assign Instruments


Fire up your favorite synth or keyboard and assign it to the melody and chord tracks.  We chose a bell synth from Logic’s preset synth for the harmony track.

Editing Harmony MIDI

Since you have the chord MIDI file, you can easily edit notes to create a pattern.  In our case, we edited the chord into an arpeggio and tuned it an octave higher.

Next, add some bass

Your bass track also can be made with the harmony MIDI file just by creating a new track from the lowest note of the chord.

Since the bass notes are rather long (sustained) in this track, we chose a bass synth with some character.

💡Tip: You’ll find these types of bass sounds in categories named, sequence, rhythmic, arpeggiator, gate depending on the synth you use.

Lastly, add a beat loop.

We selected a hip-hop beat and repeated it for the length of the song.

And that’s it!
