The latest performance update to Logic Pro X takes full advantage of the power of the new Mac Pro.
Released today, the latest version of the Logic Pro X (10.4.5), Apple's professional music production software, supports up to 56 processing threads, allowing pro music producers and film composers to work through demanding music projects with ease.
Apple says that with the new Mac Pro, Logic can now run up to five times the number of real-time plug-ins compared to the previous generation Mac Pro. Logic Pro X 10.4.5 increases the available track and channel count for all users, now supporting up to 1,000 audio tracks and 1,000 software instrument tracks, providing four times the number of available tracks for the most complex productions. Additionally, Logic Pro X now supports 1,000 auxiliary channel strips, 1,000 external MIDI tracks and 12 sends per channel strip. Users can also expect improved responsiveness of the Mixer and Event List when working with large sessions, and projects with numerous Flex Time edits and tempo changes perform more efficiently than ever.
Additional new features in Logic Pro X 10.4.5, include:
- The loop browser can filter by loop type and allows drag and drop of multiple loops into your project simultaneously.
- The redesigned DeEsser 2 plug-in provides more options to reduce sibilance on audio tracks.
- MIDI beat clocks can be sent to individual ports, each with unique settings like timing offset and plug-in delay compensation.
Logic Pro X 10.4.5 is available today as a free update for all existing users, and is available on the Mac App Store for $199.99 (US).
