Quote of the Day

ďAs soon as you start relying completely on technology, you may end up with something that only shines on the first listen. What you need is something thatís going to be interesting to you over and over. And the only thing that gives you that is people, because machines donít have a soul.Ē- Patrick Leonard

Apple Logic Pro X for $199

What's new in Pro X: Logic Pro X introduces an advanced yet intuitive new interface designed for pro musicians, a ton of inspiring new plug-ins and sounds, and more powerful tools that keep the creative process flowing.

Seamless punch recording. Automatic take management. Support for pristine 24-bit/192kHz audio. Logic Pro makes it all easy to do - and easy to undo. With over 250 audio tracks available and the ability to run hundreds of plug-ins, you'll always have what you need to complete your project. The unique Low Latency mode temporarily bypasses plug-ins that add latency, so players can give their best performance. And with Logic Remote, you can engineer it all on your iPad from anywhere in the room.

Take folders make it easy to organize and manage all your recorded takes and overdubs. You don't even have to create or rename a folder. Just record over your existing material, and Logic Pro automatically creates a new take folder. Then you can listen to each take, delete the ones you don't like, and color-code the ones you do.

Logic Pro has an enormous collection of plug-ins and sounds to help you flesh out your ideas. You can start with Drummer, a virtual session player that provides realistic, natural-sounding acoustic drum performances. Going for an electronic sound? Fire up Ultrabeat and quickly zero in on the perfect groove.

Put a chord through the Arpeggiator and experiment with new sounds. Audition one of 1500 Patches, instruments, and effects for voice, bass lines, brass, strings, woodwinds, and so much more. And explore a collection of more than 3600 electronic and urban loops, covering everything from Hip Hop to Electro House, Dubstep, Modern R&B, Tech House, Deep House, and Chillwave.

Logic Pro goes well beyond the average sequencer with an advanced set of options that let you record, edit, and manipulate MIDI performances in just about any way imaginable. Transform a loose performance into one that locks tight into the groove using region-based parameters for note velocity, timing, dynamics, and more. See and edit MIDI as beams in a classic piano roll style, as steps in rows, or even as standard music notation. Shape MIDI controller and pitch bend data with a breakpoint graph directly on each MIDI region or below the notes in the Piano Roll editor.

Instantly convert any MIDI performance into notation or use extensive step input options to enter the music manually. Then you can edit those parts, knock out lead sheets, or create elaborate orchestral compositions using a complete set of music notation tools, from comprehensive layout and print options to instrument transposition, drum notation, and adaptive lyric input. Staff Styles let you tailor the size, clef, transposition, and other details for a particular instrument and save them for easy recall. Instrument Sets let you switch quickly between viewing, editing, or printing any subset of your ensemble. And an extensive set of features for guitar make it easy to generate tablature, insert Chord Grids from a library of over 4000 chords, or notate every hammer-on and bend in that wild solo.

Whether you're an aspiring film composer or just want to lay some tracks for a five-minute video, Logic Pro makes scoring and sound design easier than ever. Import a movie and play it back full screen or from a thumbnail-size window embedded neatly into the interface. Use the movie track to visually spot your sound effects to a specific frame. Whether you navigate with the Logic Pro transport or from the movie's own controls, everything stays right in sync. Logic Pro automatically generates specialized SMPTE-locked Scene Markers, or you can insert your own, to identify key transitions in the video. And Beat Mapping makes it easy to create tempo maps that line your music up to those transitions. When it's all done, you can export right into the movie file.

With the Logic Remote app, you can use your iPad to control Logic Pro on your Mac. Play any software instrument in Logic Pro from your iPad with Smart Controls right above the instrument you're playing, so it's incredibly easy to shape your sound as you go. Quickly scroll through the massive Sound Library in Logic Pro for inspiration. And when you're ready to record, Logic Remote lets you do so from any part of the room, or even the recording booth.

Available from the Mac App Store for $199.99. Just click to download and install.
