Logic Pro X is Apple’s professional audio production software and the counterpart to its entry-level Garageband app that comes with Macs and iOS devices. The $199 suite offers audio recording functionality alongside world-class virtual instruments, effects, and thousands of high quality audio samples and loops. With recent additions like Flex Pitch – a completely embedded custom audio pitch manipulation tool– and the automatic beat-making machine known as Drummer, Logic Pro X remains as one of the leading software suites in the recording industry.

With Logic Pro X, Apple has notably put a focus on producers of popular mainstream genres, offering features specific to electronic music and hip-hop audio production in recent updates to the suite. That includes the new heavy weight sample manipulation synth Alchemy that Apple integrated after it acquired developer Camel Audio in 2015.

Unlike Garageband, Logic Pro X isn’t available as a full version for iPhones or iPads, but there is a Logic Pro Remote app that acts as a companion experience for controlling transport functions and other features remotely.

IK Multimedia has released loads of new generation products for portable and mobile musicians over the last 12 months. From the iRig HD 2 condenser mic and the sub-$100 iRig Pre guitar interface, to the new Syntronik for Mac/iOS, IK has something for everyone this holiday season. Back in August, the company debuted its latest MIDI controller product known as iRig Keys I/O. As expected with IK, this appeared to come along with everything you could want in a sub $300 controller, but this time around IK decided to take it one step further with a more all-in-one approach.

The controller keyboard-meets-audio interface brings a lot to the table for the price tag, but is it all a little too good to be true? We decided to put the company’s latest flagship driver to the test over the last couple weeks in a typical home studio environment across a number of different projects.
