Apple Release Logic Pro X
Apple have released their long awaited music production software Logic Pro X.
Used to edit and mix layers of audio tracks, Logic Pro X is the most advanced version of Logic to date. Sporting a new modern interface, Logic Pro X also comes with new tools, instruments and effects to please musicians and audio engineers alike.
A standout feature is ‘Drummer’, described as FCP.co as “a revolutionary new feature that provides a virtual session player that automatically plays along with your song in a wide variety of drumming styles and techniques”. There is also a new ‘Flex Pitch’ feature that allows the user to adjust the pitch of individual notes in an audio file, and iPad integration much like ProCutX for Final Cut Pro X.
“Logic Pro X is our most powerful version yet, with advanced tools and a modern new interface designed to streamline the process of creating professional quality music,” says Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
By far, the most interesting feature to us at Tech TV is the ability to import and export Final Cut Pro XML files. This means a smooth workflow from editing our corporate videos in FCPX to a detailed audio edit in LPX. Logic Pro X will also export AAF files to exchange with Avid Pro Tools, meaning greater flexibility for collaborations.
Priced at a competitive $199.99 (with Pro Tools retailing at $699.99), Logic Pro X is expected to be a hit and has received a great first review from Jim Dalrymple.
“Logic Pro X is the best music software release I’ve seen from Apple in a while. They added a lot of pro features, but at the same time managed to make the app more approachable—that’s a difficult thing to do.”
