Logic Pro X: Create and remove steps

Create and remove steps

The Trigger row consists of buttons 1 through 32, which represent steps or beats in the selected sequence. Note trigger events are placed on corresponding steps. This is where you designate when (on which beat) the selected sound plays.

Note: You can create and remove steps while the step sequencer is running.
