Japanese site Macotakara reports that Apple is finishing up work on a new version of its Logic professional audio software, Logic Pro X.
According to the report, Logic Pro X:
- Discontinues the Soundtrack Pro component of Logic Studio with the update. This would mirror the move taken with the release of Final Cut Pro X earlier this year. Soundtrack Pro 3 had been offered with both Final Cut Studio and Logic Studio.
- Logic Pro X is also said to fold some of the existing production tools such as WaveBurner directly into the core Logic Pro application.
- MainStage, Apple’s software for bringing virtual instruments and effects to live performances, is reportedly set to be spun out as a separate standalone application.
- Apple will not be incorporating a GarageBand-style user interface for the revamped application.
No details on availability or pricing for Logic Pro X are included in the report.
Not especially exciting as rumors go, eh? What would you like to see in the next version of Logic Pro?
