You're a fan of ­čöŐmusic and want to learn how to mix your ­čöŐmusic? Kalimba on Logic Pro? Or perhaps just create and add effects to your project? In this article we give some tips to help you create your magical realization ­čÄÁ!

Step 1: Prepare your Kalimba

One of the main differences between a conventional Kalimba and an electronic Kalimba is the jack connector. To connect your Kalimba to your computer or Logic Pro software, you'll need to check that your instrument has a connector with a 3.5 mm jack input.

Step 2: Connect your Kalimba

Once you're sure your Kalimba has a 3.5mm jack input, you can connect it to your computer. For macOS, connect the jack to an audio socket. For Windows, you may need to install an audio driver for your Kalimba to be recognized (if not, contact our technicians for help).

Step 3: Open Logic Pro

Once your Kalimba is connected to the computer, you can open your Logic Pro software. If you don't have one, you can download it from the official Logic Pro for macOS website. If your Kalimba is properly connected to your computer, you should be able to audit the incoming signal in Logic Pro.

Step 4: Add audio tracks

Now that you have the sound, you need to add audio tracks to record and mix the signal. Use the "audio tracks" section on the software to create new audio tracks and link the signal to them. You can also add effects or virtual instruments such as filters, reverbs and equalizers to your tracks.

Step 5: Record your tracks

Once you're ready, you can start recording your tracks. Use the "Recording" section to define the time and format of your recording and start recording. When you're ready, click on the "Play" button and start playing!

Step 6: Mixing your track

Once you've recorded your track, you can mix it. Use the audio tracks to adjust the level of each instrument and add effects to get the perfect sound. Once you're happy with the mix, record your track.

Step 7: Share your music

You're now ready to share your music with ­čîÄterre! If you'd like to share your mixes on the various streaming platforms, you'll need to import your track onto these platforms. Your track will then be accessible to all members and you'll be able to use it in your next projects.


Mixing your Kalimba with Logic Pro is one of the best ways to share your music and enhance it with effects. Start by making sure your Kalimba has a 3.5mm jack connector, then connect it to your computer. Patch the signal to Logic Pro, record and mix your tracks, apply effects and share your music with the world! ­čîÉ
