10.4.5 update: Increased Number of Tracks and Channels, up to: 1000 stereo audio channel strips 1000 software instrument channel strips 1000 auxiliary channel strips 1000 external MIDI tracks 12 sends per channel strip all-new DeEsser 2 plug-in 16 ports of MIDI clock, MTC, and MMC from Logic – yeah, expect to see a Mac Pro in broadcast/film/TV applications running audio Mixer configuration can be set to your own user-definable defaults (huge time saver there, finally) A clever automatic duplicate erase when you’re merging MIDI recordings And some new keyboard shortcuts to save you time when editing: Option + Shift while rubber-band selecting in the Piano Roll: new time Handles selection. Option-click track on/off button: loads/unloads the plug-ins on the channel strip (wow, easy A/B!) Shift-double-click Tracks background: start playback from that position. And for the “I have an old beat-up MacBook you can pry out of my dead fingers” crowd – finally Freeze works the way it should. (How many of you were desperately freezing tracks while cursing Logic as the CPU meter refused to go down?) From the release notes: “Freezing a track now unloads its plug-ins to free up resources.” http://cdm.link/2019/06/logic-pro-x-10-4-5-upgrade/

Wow, I literally tried to buy this today (the day 10.5 was released) and it can't be installed on my computer. If I had bought it yesterday I would have gotten the previous version, and it would have worked. I can't just buy the previous version now because that would be to easy. Thanks Apple!

why "OS X 10.12 or later" ? Is 10.11.6 such a vintage crapware ? I could understand a special update for the new APFS of 10.13 but between el Capitan & Sierra what is the point ???

This great piece of software is getting better after each update. I use it besides Cubase 9.5, but I will soon change this and use Logic Pro X only. The new features in every update are wonderful and the DAW is very stable and fast. A big thanks to the developers!

Great software. After having used both Cubase and Pro Tools since the late 90s, I've been using Logic exclusively for the past year. Wrote and recorded a whole album using it.

I consider myself a musician hobbyist playing keys and guitar. For a very long time I used Boss HD recorder/mixer to take my tracks. Last year I started to use Garageband which was truly amazing and lifted my track quality considerably. Sadly for mixing things with compressor, limiters, good EQ plugins, it rather was limited. I now have upgrade to Logic Pro. I did put a strain om my hobby budget but it was well worth the effort. For $200 you get a professional suit to do about anything you want regarding recording and mixing tracks. When coming from Guitarband the learning curve is still steep but ones you make the 'click' it is the most important tool for any musician.

Buy it, use it, adore it. Like I do. :-) Full 5 stars

Best and very affordable mastering tool. Yes, mastering tool because I don't like the workflow for creating music. Ableton Live is much better for doing this.

Hey all, I wanted to get some feedback here from those who have used LogicX before buying. I play the guitar and I would have a music related use for it. However in most cases I would want it more for as an audio editor and production app to go with final cut and other editing tools. I currently own a copy of Amadeus Pro, and that's a great editor as well. That's why i am asking if I would be wanting to use logic for something it wasn't intended for, and I should stick with the editor I have, or if Logic will be of any use for regular audio editing. Thanks

Alchemy is really an awesome synthesizer and is already equiped with a huge amount of presets. And it has a wonderful GUI. Meanwhile there exist many great AU plugins too and they all work like a charm.

Back to Logic Pro X again after some ups and downs using other audios, and this may be the optimum state of Logic imo. Surely will keep using it.

I bought my first Mac because of Logic Audio. Back in those early days of hard disk recording each major update of Logic was a truly exciting event. I fondly remember the first audio recording engine with time stretching, the first software based sampler instrument, the first customizable virtual mixer and the first integrated audio effects plug-ins. With Logic X that old feeling of excitement is back with a vengeance thanks to a brand new take on virtual drumming, flex pitch, a beautifully redesigned graphic interface and numerous improvements under the hood. This is one awesome feeling.

Finally I have a macbook pro. And finally I can use Logic again. Long time ago, when it was available for windows, it was my fav recording software. Apple bought Logic and I was forced to use cubase but it never came any close to what logic can do. Excited times for me. A new OS and Logic back in the studio.

This new version is AWESOME. And I mean A_W_E_S_O_M_E. I was waiting for this a very long time and I urge every Logic 1 to 9 owner to update now. It even more stable compared to 9 and has so many new great feature it is a blast to use. I was so close to jump the Ableton Live train but Logic Pro X made my day ! Thank you Apple for the best Logic ever.

Let us all "watch the way they go" for just a moment and share our pertinent observations. Watching the act of self-serving greed that serves no one may, in the end, be instructive. I recently purchased Logic Pro v9. To get v10, I will have to uninstall v9. I will also have to pay another 199.99. If I DO uninstall v9 and find v10 wanting, I am not permitted to re-download v9, which I now legally own, as it is "no longer available at the US App Store." Such dulled brilliance in the minds of self-anointed aristocrats whose only accomplishment will be the end of any form of trust between consumer and corporate atrocity is in itself a marvel, a feat worthy only of the lowliest of thieves. I will no longer EVER use the app store for anything except updates, and of those I shall be particularly wary. I was a long-time Mac devotee. I am no longer. Such small-minded, ham-fisted pilfering aimed at those who made a company great (we, the users) is not only an act of unbridled greed, but also an act of heinous treachery. Unless of course we are witnessing some huge merger, meant to create a monolithic monopoly of unknown power and proportion. In either case, I quit. I will have computers built to my own specifications in future. I cannot watch "the way they go" as I can no longer afford it. Nor can I stomach it.

I eed some advice. . . I am a pianist. I want to make "beds" for my piano, using my Rodes microphones and analog hardware to record the piano parts after I complete the "frameworks" on my Mac Pro. I may record direct to my Mac but believe I will need some sort of modular interface to do live recordings not using all digital instruments. I may want to do piano, bass, and drum tracks and then import them into the DAW that I choose (with your help). I was set on Logic Pro. Now I see Logic Express at the same price. Are these upgrades or full programs? Which is a better program? Should I move towards Ableton or Cubase? I've used Cubase and I get somewhat confused. Any other ideas? I'll consider any suggestions (on this topic), and thank you in advance for your expertise and your time.

3 1/2 years and no new version? Logic is starting to feel a bit dated compared to Cubase. Not much evolution going on with Logic nowadays. Apple? Forgetting your pro users? iOS is the thing now I guess.

Nice to see they fixed the HT problem so soon. Only problem is that 9.1.3 still is "heavier" on the Mac than 9.1.1, and there is no real benefit to do the update. How are you thinking Apple?

This totally kills hyper-threading support for 2010 Mac Pro's. You should expect to loose 40% performance. Weakest update ever. Make a 9.1.1 backup or be sorry.

The 8.0.2 update screwed up my Audio/Instrument Library. Especially Ultrabeat and some beat-audio-files of my projects seem to be missing. Unsure if this is a specific problem in my case, yet, if anyone experienced similar symptoms plz report.

I hear all that you are saying and yet I've mixed music for several films released by major studios in logic and half a dozen CDs. The reviews have been good and the I've been nominated for a major award for one of the films. Your excuse me if I wonder if it might be the old “user error” that is the reason you are having so much trouble. The equipment never substitutes for good ear training and creativity. Although I do not use logic for all things, I have found it to be a fast and reliable tool for me to work with in a professional environment. I noticed your earlier, disdainful comment to the other Logic supporter about his work, and I imagine you will dismiss my comments with the same arrogance. Luckily I am not dependent upon you to pay my fees or review my work. Those who do must not have the benefit of your highly refined taste.

This isn't a review, but rather a question as to why this update will no work for me. In fact, Logic Pro 7 will absolutely not work on my Powerbook. I've tried many forums and discussions and cannot figure this out. Logic Pro 7.0.1 crashes on launch - every time. Dongle is in and works fine (tested it on a different system to confirm). Then when I tried to run this updater (7.1.1) the installer tells me that there is no eligable app in the applications folder. Yet Logic is in there. Does anyone have a clue as to what's going on? Naturally I don't have time to re-install my OS. I'd really like to use this app I paid a thousand dollars for. Apple won't help, even though it's an install/launch issue. They said it's "beyond their support agreement". The application is brand new. Powerbook works fine in every other way, with all other applications. thanks, mateo

I bought Logic 6 when it came out, and was not really that impressed- however after buying Logic 7 I really am impressed with it. 1) Better interface/ more modern The interface is clunky and slower than Logic 6. Apple obviously just added more code on top of the original thereby just more processing cycles for the same operations. Plus it looks like crap. Just use the OSX file dialogues for God sake. Soundtrack looked like hell and now Logic does. 2) Multi-tonal scale support for ALL logic plugins When's the last time you wrote something using microtones - especially in a sequencer with electronic instruments? Priorities, priorities, priorities. 3) Professional mastering plugins ??? I would hate to hear your "professional" music. The Multiband Limiter still destroys the stereo image during the master process. Huge(!) phasing issues. Granted this goes back to Emagic, but Christ, fix the bugs before you add a bunch of crap no one uses. 4) Lots of presets 5) Contains Waveburner, a CD Red Book creation program Waveburner does not work. Period. Too many bugs. It's joke. 6) 3 completely new soft synths which bought separately from any other company would cost at least $500 each. Really? Spectrasonics stuff cost around $300, is ten times better than this Apple crap, and I already own it. Priorities, priorities, priorities. Fix the program before adding a bunch of crap. Really, when one considers all of the above, and countless more which I have not mentioned one just has to be impressed with what the program is- where it is going- and how much it is sold for. Yeah right...Still no sample accurate resolution in the arrange window, an amzaing plethora of bugs, a crappy, clunky new interface, still no latency-free capatibilty with PCI based DSP cards. Lots of bells and whistles, but nothing of import. It all comes down to looking at products intelligently- in Logic's case, there is no one music production solution which is as integrated with both hardware- and software- I mean come on! Logic is now becoming one with the Mac- we have not seen this much integration since Notator on the Atari!! Apple sucks. Tech support calls are now $200 per incident. Give me German tweakheads over greedy America assholes anyday.

Considering the fact it doesn't crash THAT many times anymore, Logic 7 Pro is _slowly_ approaching the status of a "Pro Music Software". Right now there are still a few annoying bugs left, however, minor ones. It should be remembered that bugginess is not _directly_ Apple's fault, they're only trying to fix the awful buggy leaking boat the Emagic Sleazo Posse sold to them. :-/ But why did the screen zoom controls change? Argh. Also, considering the fact that LP7 has easily the most versatile selection of built-in plug-ins (and the settings), there's no true competition. If somebody's nagging they're being robbed etc., perhaps they should think about quitting the "pro" game. There's the cheaper Express version for you hobbyists and I-want-it-all-without-paying-and-eternal-free-updates-too -people. Get that first, make some hits, collect your bling-bling and upgrade! ;-) Understand the facts, personnel and man years behind this product and its development. Buy a car today. Have a new free motor installed after five years of usage? Never heard of that.

Update went smooth, no problems there. Still, my first session resulted in a crash within 30 minutes!! My system is extremely stable otherwise and I have nothing but validated plugins that work without any problem in Digital Performer 4.5. Logic 7 has so far been NO FUN!

Considering that this product just 4 years ago would have cost more than $3,000 dollars one just has to be impressed with what Apple has done with Logic. I bought Logic 6 when it came out, and was not really that impressed- however after buying Logic 7 I really am impressed with it. Lets just go through some key points: 1) Better interface/ more modern 2) Multi-tonal scale support for ALL logic plugins 3) Professional mastering plugins 4) Lots of presets 5) Contains Waveburner, a CD Red Book creation program 6) 3 completely new soft synths which bought separately from any other company would cost at least $500 each.

Logic is now becoming one with the Mac- we have not seen this much integration since Notator on the Atari!! Sure you can copy software- and argue that "companies are making so much money", but musicians were the first to complain when MP3's started burning a hole in their pockets! And for all of you out there that want to argue that stealing a car is not the same as stealing software- then think again! Its not.

Having been using Logic Pro 7 for a while I can say that It's not worth the EXPENSIVE upgrade, I have been a established Logic user and It's down hill from now on. Now Crapple own the license there has been no updates since it's release, this is already proof they don't care about bugs in software and the customer support is a joke compared to Emagic's there's two hopes Bob hope and no hope! Stay with Logic 6 don't believe the hype.

What am I supposed to do? I already have over 1000$ invested in this software since 1998. Long term users are supposed to pay more over time than initial buyers!?! BAD MOVE CRAPPLE!
