Logic Pro X 10.4.2

Apple has released Logic Pro X 10.4.2, a maintenance release with a lengthy list of minor enhancements and bug fixes for the professional audio app. The update now lets you relocate the Sound Library to an external storage device, tweaks Smart Tempo to analyze tempo data across multi-track recordings to define the Project Tempo, and lets you apply Automatic Slurs to selected notes in the Score Editor. The app also remains responsive when resizing the Key Commands window, eliminates lag when selecting tracks in large projects, adds a scroll bar to the File Tempo Editor, updates Alchemy’s additive synthesis engine for greater clarity and improved tuning stability, and fixes numerous crashes and hangs. ($199.99 new in the Mac App Store, free update, 1.45 GB, release notes, 10.12+)

  1. I hate to be picky, but is an update that adds a “lengthy list of enhancements” really a “maintenance” release? I’ve always thought of a maintenance release as being basically just bug fixes.

    I do realise I’m being pretty trivial here.

  2. We agree—this update basically has a ton of bug fixes and not much in the way of new features. Even the things Apple calls out as new features and enhancements are really small, so it’s still a maintenance release.

  3. Fair enough! I’m not a Logic user, so I can hardly judge.

  4. I just spent $479.00 for ReVoice Pro 4 in order to take advantage of ARA 2, now I read that it’s not compatible with Logic Pro 10.4.2 and they’re blaming Apple. Can you find out about this?

  5. Thanks for taking the time to get back to me. I hope they get this ARA2 issue fixed pronto.
