Apple Logic Pro X Review

The Case Against X The time has finally come for the new Logic Pro version. It was almost four years without a major update, many were doubtful that it might ever see the light of day and even ventured it would disappear. The software has arrived. Should we be happy or not? Here are some answers. read more…

Making Music on the iPad

The iPad for Musicians: Present State Considered a bulky iPhone by its detractors when it was first presented, the iPad has been revolutionizing the market of mobile computing ever since — and our DAWs as a consequence. A good enough reason to take a stand on the issue. Let's start with an overview of Apple's offering. read more…

Could the Apple iPhone be the best portable recorder?

My iPhone is an 8-Track Recorder The iPhone is a great little piece of machinery. It can do anything! What's the weather going to be like in Chicago tomorrow? At what time does Police Academy 17 run again? 7:20pm. A Bomberman game? No problem-o. Lady Gaga's latest hit? You got it. We're just missing some useful tools for musicians... You think? They are already here. read more…

Logic Pro X Review by C-Los (Logic Pro X)

By beatsbyclos, 24/04/2015
Everyone says that Pro Tools is the industry standard. But for me as a primarily hip-hop producer, Logic is the logical solution. With this DAW you will be able to record, mix, master, create using MIDI, or even edit and sync video to music. You have over 200 tracks available for each session, 15 slots for plug-ins, and eight slots for your sends. This is enough to handle even the most extreme sessions.

I’ve been using Logic Pro X for seven months now and overall I am very satisfied with the improvements from Logic Pro 9. I run Logic Pro X on two different Macs, one of them being my oldest and main workhorse, a late 2009 iMac 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7 with 8GB RAM with the MAvericks OS. Occasionally, I may have a buffering issue that stops playback, but simply pressing play again, my sessions will playback fine.

I’ve also had sessions where I was pretty heavy on plug-in usage and my sessions were able to playback just fine. I use Avid’s MBox mini for my audio playback and microphone inputs, and they have worked flawlessly. I’ve also had the opportunity to produce a song where I had a guitarist lay down electric and bass guitar tracks using the stock amps and pedals that Logic offers.

However, because Logic Pro X is now a 64-bit application, this could very well mean that you may not be able to use any of your previous 32-bit plug-ins (but there’s ways around that). If you have 32-bit plug-ins that you covet, I would consider researching solutions before fully committing.

Another problem I have yet to figure out is the solo-safe feature. In my mixes, I use submixes to sum similar tracks to one fader. In Pro Tools, I gray (or disable) out the solo button on my submix auxiliary tracks so that even if I have to solo one or more tracks, they will still be heard. Logic offers the same feature, but it simply does not work like it’s supposed to.

One feature I frequent often is Logic’s addition to Flex Time. You are now able to adjust individual notes of singers with Flex Pitch. When activated, MIDI notes are created on the piano roll to reflect what the singer sung across the keyboard. From there it’s quite simple to click and drag notes to their desired position. This feature is very similar to Melodyne, and really helps dial in those sharps and flats where redos are not an option.

Another feature that is new to Logic Pro 9 is Track Stacks. Track Stacks offers a better way to help organize those big sessions by combining multiple tracks and managing them with a master fader. One way I find summing tracks to a “Folder Stack” useful, is stacking background vocals. I do this in addition to sending background vocals to their own submix for extra control.

One feature I believe is underrated, is Logic’s new stock compressor plug-in. The compressor still offers the seven different modules within the compressor, but now some of the modules also have a distortion knob to help your sounds cut through the mix better. The VU-style metering also help give a refreshing look to the new compressor. Next, I found that Logic’s stock compressor also has a mix knob to allow me to do a bit of parallel compression, mixing the original unprocessed signal with the processed signal. Once I’m finished adjust parameters on the compressor, I can use the new output knob to boost or attenuate the processed signal’s level.

I love Logic because it fits my needs as a creator of music. There’s plenty of loops that come stock to help spark inspiration, but Logic also offers some of the best stock virtual instruments I’ve heard from any DAW. Some say that “it’s not which DAW you choose, but how you use it.” But Logic Pro X is a music producer’s DAW. And if your plan is to produce music in any capacity, I highly recommend making the logical choice, and purchasing Logic Pro X for your studio.

New Flex Pitch mode
New features on stock compressor
Track Stacks
Tons of virtual instruments
New Studio Drummer
Great Affordability

64-bit only application
Solo-safe does not work properly

zurf's review (Logic Pro X)

By zurf, 28/11/2014
Already, no problem installation, setup is easy, we download, hop it's done, the instruments provided are convincing and impressive library provided. No incompatibilities especially with virtual instruments I use regularly, except that it took the Upgrader ... but that's normal. I almost have not used the manual to get into it ... but my experience with Logic 8 probably helped. I use it in a home studio setup (so no live:-) )


When recently I decided to change the material of the studio I opted for an Imac / SSd 256GB / 5i processor with an external HDD for backups and Logic works perfectly with this config. Question stability no problem unless you do a little risky stuff but otherwise no real worries when the CPU load ... I do not even think.
I was a little scared saw everything we see on the forums about Yosemite but I have had no problems with this new version of Apple's OS.


That's one month that I use, and working every day with, I begin to get an idea about it. Do not talk about the price that is the lowest in the market and of course I would do this choice eyes closed.
This choice was guided by the confidence I have in Lengeling Gerhard and Chris Adam programmers who are responsible and that I enjoyed working with Notator I then passed Logic 8 and now (I do not know if are always the ones who make development) Logic X.
Logic X developments for what I've tested to date are well regarded: the tracks of automations that are right next to the automated track, zoom the keyboard they were "sting" in Digital Performer which is really handy, and if we add to this a look that is very successful I can say that I am satisfied.
In practice I find that I never do the mastering of my pieces with Logic but with Digital Performer which I find most useful tools in particular regarding audio editing but now, they are only working habits, we can not be good at everything and Logic is really perfect for composition.
Maybe there-he has things to improve so I put only "excellent"!
