Logic Pro 7, Logic Express 7, and Jam Packs Released

Send Article to a Friend

Apple's music focus lately has been on the iTunes Music Store, but the company sang a different tune last week when it introduced Logic Pro 7, Logic Express 7, and two additional Jam Packs that can be used with those applications as well as GarageBand.


Logic Pro 7 adds three new software instruments: Sculpture, a "component-modeling based synthesizer;" UltraBeat, a drum machine; and Guitar Amp Pro, a guitar amplifier simulator. (Apple previewed these components at the NAMM exhibition last January; see "Apple Clarifies Logic at NAMM" in TidBITS-713.) Logic Pro 7 also adds support for Apple Loops and features distributed processing, enabling other networked Macs to work on audio files concurrently.


Logic Express 7 is a streamlined version of Logic Pro 7, much as Apple's Final Cut Express is an intermediate version of Final Cut Pro; see Apple's comparison chart at the URL below for specific differences between the two Logic applications.

For GarageBand users who have now played every instrument and loop available in the program, Apple also released two new Jam Packs. Jam Pack 2: Remix Tools adds beats, bass lines, and synth hooks for your next dance party. Jam Pack 3: Rhythm Section expands GarageBand's lineup of drum kits, percussion, and other instruments.

The full version of Logic Pro 7 costs $1,000; upgrades from Logic Gold/Platinum 5 or 6, or Logic Pro 6, cost $300. Logic Express 7 sells for $300, with upgrades from Logic Express 6 priced at $100. The new Jam Packs are $100 each. Both Logic applications require Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
