Apple has introduced Logic Pro X, an update to their popular DAW that features a new user interface, powerful new creative tools for musicians and an expanded collection of instruments and effects.

apple-logic-pro-x-uiKey New Features:

  • Logic Pro X includes Drummer, a virtual session player that automatically plays along with your song in a wide variety of drumming styles and techniques
  • Flex Pitch provides integrated pitch editing for audio recordings. This is way beyond AutoTune – Flex Pitch analyzes your audio and then lets do Melodyne-style audio editing. You can move the pitch of individual notes up or down, for pitch correction, or use it as a creative tool.
  • Logic Remote lets you play and control Logic Pro X from an iPad, letting you create and mix music from anywhere in the room. (Screen shots below).
  • Retro Synth is a new virtual instrument that emulates some of the most popular classic synthesizers from the 70s and 80s.
  • Vintage Keyboards offer realistic models of electric pianos, B3 organs and clavs.
  • Track Stacks lets you organize and collapse multiple tracks into one. It can also be used to create complex layered instruments.
  • Smart Controls allow you to manipulate multiple plug-ins and parameters with a single move for quick and powerful sound design.
  • An improved Mixer helps manage mix sessions more efficiently, with increased visibility into signal flow and dynamics and faster ways to manipulate channel inserts.

While Apple has added many new features, virtual instruments and an iPad remote app, it has kept the price at $200.

“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,” said Apple’s Philip Schiller. “Musicians are going to love creative new features like Drummer, Flex Pitch, Track Stacks and the Arpeggiator.”
