Logic Pro X Updated With Smart Tempo & New Effects


Apple today announced an update to Logic Pro X, featuring new tempo detection technology and a number of new effect plug-ins.

Smart Tempo is a new tempo detection technology that automatically manages tempo across all the content in a project. Smart Tempo gives users the freedom to record naturally without a metronome or click track, yet still have their performance stay in sync with any other tempo-based content or features in a project.

It’s also easy to combine recordings from different sources with varying tempos, making it a valuable tool for electronic musicians who create remixes and mashups.

New Effect Plug-Ins

Logic Pro X also includes a variety of new content, including two Drummers that play roots and jazz-influenced brush styles, two vintage brush kits for the Drum Kit Designer feature, more than 800 additional loops and a new library for Alchemy synths with 150 cinematic presets.

Pricing and Availability

Logic Pro X 10.4 is available today as a free update for all existing users, and is available on the Mac App Store for $199.99 (US) for new customers.
