Loading and Saving Ultrabeat Settings

Ultrabeat settings are saved and loaded in the same way as other Logic Pro instruments. For more information, see the MainStage documentation.

An Ultrabeat setting contains:

The joint recall of all this information when loading an Ultrabeat setting is extremely practical, because the musical effect of the patterns—especially those with sequenced gate and velocity parameters—is often tightly tied to the tone and impact of the sounds being used.

Note: When you save a drum kit with the Settings menu, only the location of the sample is saved with the setting. An Ultrabeat setting doesn’t actually save the audio files themselves—merely a reference to their hard disk location. If you load a setting that contains a reference to a sample that has been moved or erased, a dialog prompts you to specify or find the sample. To avoid this problem, it is highly recommended that you use the Finder to create and manage a dedicated Ultrabeat sample folder—for all sounds and kits.
