Review Logic Pro X

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…

Logic Pro X Review by C-Los

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.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE
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.

STAND-OUT FEATURES
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.



MY OPINION
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.

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

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

zurf's review

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:-) )

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

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.

OVERALL OPINION

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"!

Disappointing possible unreliable.

By ougarit, 13/10/2014
Installation via Mac apple store, fast at first, but a terrible slow when there are additional download packs. Even when we finished there yet ...

FITNESS / PERFORMANCE

2 Macs, no worries on that side ...

EXCEPT qd as we enter the soft one realizes that it is severely buggy.

What I have noticed for the "time

Having a test this morning ONE STEREO track (one ...) to check if the signal from my D90 going on in my RME via ADAT I noticed with dismay that LOGIC PLANTED, finding no more NO plug, including Apple and Logic plugins. (See attached image)

A shame. short not reliable live.

I keep it as it is paid for and related to my Apple account (...) but for my home studio.

Live audio recording, no question of a fool of myself with an app that plant because it puts two in AUi record. And the worst is that it works start but suddenly disappears plugin (see attached image with the exclamation mark). If clicked, total crash. Bug completely traitor so ... it starts well and after a bug while ...

Furthermore I have repeatedly noted that despite incessant download additional packs, Logic can not find the files ... What L9 has never

I pass over the difficulty in changing MIDI program what I did in 1 mouse click in Cakewalk Pro Audio 9 there 10 years and smoothly in Logic 9, instead of names of instruments, we have MIDI numbers, convenient, and then double-tracks and while we may have names instead of 127 No S GM on inactive tracks can not be accessed on active runways; BREF.

Finally, the famous Logic tested yesterday via remote Ipad is not worth all the excellent Neyrinck. At the end of a few minutes, it Freeez, the level of tranches no longer works. In short a beautiful miss for Apple, which says a lot about the future of Logic, yet for 15 years THE competitor PT HD.

well done. :( dropoff Window

NOTICE GLOBAL

Given the lack of seriousness of Apple, which is more concerned with its widgets has its pros components, it leaves one by one, I retreated to Reaper, 100X reliable. (4 years to release a new look Logic and buggy)

In conclusion, an admittedly harsh opinion but unfortunately justified. I therefore agree amount of people who have put hands dirty and discovered a long list of bugs.

In fact, at first sight seems LX fantastic and far more advanced than was L9.

Yet as we dig we realize that there is a lot of work to do yet, not on details but on essential points.

If LX plant ADAT recording mode when using a Fostex on EMR c "is serious. But as already explained what n" is not the only hearty bug which I was confronted. If we can not display the names of MIDI progr mentally and must list the 127 instrumentals is lamentable ...

what more

By jembozzo, 11/08/2014
install internet on the apple store site niquel
config is alone with mac osx, especially if you have a card apogee directly supported
since the transition to mavericks, I have a little problem with my sound card that hangs when I open logic, I have to go into sound preferences and re join my card! I know why
if not, I was already on Logic 8 and 9, it's simply huge
and the sound is better

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

imac i7 3.2 GHz, 8GB RAM
it must now
my soundcard apogee duet
everything goes niquel
this is perfect

OVERALL OPINION

it's been 4 years since I moved from Nuendo has logic!
and pc Macintosch
it's like going from the Velib Tmax

I mao since 1985! and frankly, I tried pro tools, I stopped! too many problems

on logic pro x, sound is processed at 24 bits directly and we feel a real difference with the previous version
even when you want to open your projects, they are sounding better reopened
for less than 200 euros you will not find better on the market, with a bank of his sick
high performance plugs and very professional virtual instruments
a drummer emulation, sets and patterns to turn pale dave wakle
an arpeggiator, etc. etc.
this is THE music software to own if you are on mac,
it is indisputable
