Apple very quietly released the latest version of Logic last week, called Logic Pro X, to pretty widespread acclaim. There’s a lot to like in this new version, including a new streamlined look, a new collection of virtual instruments (including the incredible virtual Drummer, with sounds from Bob Clearmountain), built-in pitch correction and remote control from an iPad.
Best of all, Logic Pro X is only $199, which might take a real bite out of Pro Tools sales, since the leap to PT 11 has many users on the fence.
Here’s a great overview of X from my friend Dot Bustelo on Lynda.com. If you’re interested, you can also check out my recording, mixing and mastering courses on Lynda and get a free 7 day subscription as well.
