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+)
Option-click to Hide Apps Quickly
This trick has been available in the Mac OS for years, but many people still don't know it. If you have too many windows cluttering up your screen, you can hide specific ones easily as you work. When you're in any application, hold down the Option key and click on another app's window, on the Dock, or in the Finder to switch to that other app and simultaneously hide all the windows in the previously current app.
