Apple has released Logic Pro X 10.0 with a hefty list of new features, enhancements, and fixes for the professional audio app. The update adds 3 new Drummers and 11 new Drum Kit Designer patches, improves handling of multiple displays on OS X 10.9 Mavericks, improves Shuffle commands, and illuminates the glyph on the Metronome button when Logic is stopped or in Play mode to indicate that “Click while recording” is enabled. The release also make several enhancements to the Channel EQ and Linear Phase EQ plug-ins. For a complete rundown on the massive changes in Logic Pro X 10.0.5, be sure to read the release notes (we recommend carving out some time in your calendar before doing so).

Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily
Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.
