World Exclusive: All New Logic Revealed

Rumors have been flying around the internet for months regarding development of a new version of Final Cut while news on Logic Pro's development, however, has been scant, if non-existent. This knowledge has been under lock and key within the top secret labs at Cupertino and, as with all unreleased products, anyone that knows can't tell, and anyone that tells... well, doesn't know.

Until now, the features in the next version of Logic have been shrouded in mystery. Yes you read that right: Until now... because we at macProVideo have a world-first exclusive video, by our very own Logic Guru, SteveH, who gets hands-on with the latest iteration of Logic. There are a host of surprises in store for long-time users and for those looking to jump over from competing DAWs.

All in a Name

Perhaps the biggest surprise is the name change and while the consolidated interface has the same look and feel to Logic 8 and 9, other new additions are apparent under the hood and in the re-engineered instruments and plugins.

While I haven't been able to get hands-on with this version myself, (I must remind you this is not yet available to the public), SteveH was so excited by some of the more radical changes he made a "first-look" video as soon as he could.

Bridging the Gap

From the little I've seen, it's apparent that Apple have gone out of their way to make Logic's instruments more accessible and easier to use. I imagine the aim is to help all users, regardless of musical (or software) level make music for any genre more quickly. After all this is what we launch Logic to do, right?

But for those who consider themselves "Pro" audio guys and gals you can breathe again. The high-end features are all still there with some stunningly useful additions that look set to maintain Logic as the hub of your production studio and live-setup rig. You've got to check out this video to see what I mean!

You Got it

We're really proud to be the first to get you this sneak peek of the new Logic. So without further ado take a look at this exclusive video and drop us a comment below with tutorial suggestions and with any questions for SteveH on the features that didn't make it into this video:

Please Note: The version in this video is not the final release version. As a result, macProVideo cannot be held responsible for any changes made between the version shown in the video above and the final release candidate.

The gesture sensor with the 3D camera is the best news I've ever heard. Too bad we have to wait a few months to put an hand on those new assisted musical devices :-&

Stupid video. What a waste of time to make . . . and watch. Serious music producers don't have time for such jokes.

Ah - just kidding. Steve, you continue to rock. Too freakin funny man.

How exciting....I'm sure LogicBand Express can't be far behind! Does it choose Apple Loops for you also? And, you forgot to mention the upcoming Windows and OS9 Versions!

That was pretty funny! I thought for a second, "New Logic is looking kinda cheap and toy-like." I think some people are still believing it! That's making me laugh even more so.

Michael Barela
LOL!! My heart sank; just bought Logic 9 a few weeks ago! So after getting news about the new Duet yesterday, (just bought one of those too), I thought... my luck... all the new stuff comes out right after I buy it! You got me! LOL!! However; I was very disturbed by the "new features". But I'm afraid this joke will soon come true, the way things are headed these days...

My favorite feature is the "text me a sandwich" button.

The only problem I'm having with it is that it keeps texting me baloney sandwiches, when I'm a vegetarian! Yuck!

Steve, can you fill us in on how to further customize the sandwich texting feature?

I was crying of disappointment. Thanks God this is untrue. I was about to resign logic if this was true.
Apr 01, 2011
Den
Wow. I was sooo excited when I got the email. A new version of Logic and a preview video too! The penny dropped when I heard Steve utter the 'April 1st' words.

So, now I'm so disappointed and my iPad isn't going to be here for another couple of weeks.
I'm gonna have to finish my EP instead. Oh Well!

And I did so like the wood effect.

I bet that was Igor's idea.

"...but, does to go to 11...?"

The E-Mail got me. The launch in the video gave it away.

Great video and yes, I did get punk'd!

Although Steve didn't show it in the video, all the Guitar Amp and pedal dials go to 11.

Thanks to everyone for you hilarious comments. May everyday be April Fools day! It's always so much fun for me to spoof the awesome DAW that empowers us to bring the gift of music into the world. Logic rocks!

@Rounik Sethi, I have not tried the Auto Composer yet but there is an new master bus plug-in with only one button! It called "BetR". You just press the button and everything sounds better. :D
Apr 02, 2011
Rounik
@EricBradley,Good spot! It doesn't work for me on a mono signal! And it doesn't bounce in place... Right I'm going to fill in a bug report on this for LogicBand '12 ;-)

Great work. You got me too!!!

Got me, kind of. Suspicion began with the constantly "evolving" arrange page. How annoying would that be. And when SteveH calls the addition of wooden side pieces a "feature", well, that's a good tip that we're in the land of comedy.
Happy April Fool's Day guys, made me smile, but I was a little terrified there for a moment.

Hilarious!
Love the wood paneling and the changing color (urp) and gee, writing music is so hard, this is so much better! Thanks, guys, for the laugh!

I know don't know guys. I have GarageBand on my iPad and it has some smart instruments such as...piano, bass, guitar, and drums. Maybe not totally an April fools joke after all. I can't see why apple would have smart instruments on GarageBand for iPad and not for the new logic pro 10. Smart instruments on the new logic is real in my opinion. Guess we'll just have to wait.
