Apple has released Logic Pro X 10.0.7, a massive update with over 330 enhancements and bug fixes. The biggest news is that the professional audio app now supports 24 simultaneous processing threads on 12-core Mac Pro models, which should provide a nice boost in performance. The release also enables you to insert current volume, pan, and send values for all selected tracks at the playhead position; improves the Drummer track’s timing if Low Latency mode is enabled; enables you to paste automation at the playhead or marquee selection area; consolidates the Snap, Alignment Guides, and Snap to Grid settings within the Snap menu; and improves import and export of XML with Final Cut Pro X. ($199.99 new in the Mac App Store, free update, 828 MB, release notes, 10.8.4+)
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.
