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.

Selection-Based processing might not be the most exciting feature you’ll find inside of Logic Pro X, but it is certainly one of the unsung heroes of Apple’s flagship audio software. While much of our discussions on Logic Pros are in some degree centered around making music for various applications, Selection-Based Processing is useful for just about anyone. Whether it’s for intersting creative FX flourishes at just the right spot in a verse or making basic editing tasks a breeze for your next YouTube upload, SBP has you covered. expand full story

Feature Request: Audio Quick Look previews for Logic Pro sessions in Finder

The Quick Look feature in macOS has always been a particularly useful, albeit somewhat unremarkable feature in Apple’s desktop environment. Select any file in the Finder, hit the Space bar and boom, you get a quick look at the contents of the file without having to open it in a compatible app. I use it relentlessly. If you’re anything like me, this is incredibly convenient for previewing images, listening to audio files and getting a quick peak at documents/PDFs. However, it all depends on the type of file you’re taking a Quick Look at. A Logic Pro X session file offers up an image of the main tracks area in that particular session just the way it was when you last saved the project along with some quick links to backups, but we think it’s time Apple takes it up a notch.
