Logic Pro X 10.0

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released Logic Pro X 10.0, redesigning the professional audio app with a sleeker, darker interface. New features include Track Stacks for grouping related tracks, Smart Controls for adjusting multiple plug-in parameters at once, a virtual drummer (safe from spontaneous combustion!), and Flex Pitch for fine-tuning the pitch of notes. Released alongside the update is Logic Remote for the iPad, a free companion app to control Logic Pro X remotely. If you’re worried that Logic Pro X will be the disaster Final Cut Pro X was on initial release, we suggest reading veteran Apple writer and guitarist Jim Dalrymple’s thorough review. As with all Mac App Store apps, there is no upgrade discount; if you want to move up from the previous version, you must still pay full price. ($199.99 from the Mac App Store, 650 MB)
