Is audio grouping more robust with stack tracks?

The Earl of Cirencester    Said...

Hmm, not sure about the new look. Also still don't think you can re-order the plugins (menu) or move Aux tracks (without creating a track on the arrange page). Also hearing the audio processing is the same as 9(poor multicore distribution). Plugins and most of the instruments have the same dated GUI as before and I'm not sure if you can still insert a plugin on, say, FX slot 9 of multiple tracks, if you wanted something like Sonimus Satson sat at the bottom of all your tracks before you start adding other FX etc.

Hopefully they improved the bit conversions (some plugins in the 32bit engine just run at 24bit). In my opinion these were always a factor that could make the sound worse if you're not careful.

MEH - not impressed. And i own L9.

Why nothing like Ableton Session view ? just seems like incremental improvements here and there. In large part a me too catching up with the competition.

I'm sticking with Ableton.

Hahah nice summary, Mr. Batt

Disappointed by these thread comments - I was expecting to find the inevitable ton of entertaining vitriol, but nobody appears to hate or be much affronted by Logic Pro X at all. boo

As soon as I saw an Eric Persing Facebook comment announcing LPX, I immediately thought: It's going to all about a new Clip Launch Mode, or something Live-oriented to compete with Ableton, Bitwig and Maschine, maybe based around the iPad..

but no. Garish Bitwig colour schemes aside, I admit to being among those who are not jumping up and down.

Final Cut X was such a radical ground-up redesign. Surely LPX has undergone equivalent under-the-hood treatment?

If Flex Tune and Flex Time REALLY work as advertised, LPX may warrant further investigation

macprovideo.com has a free 'what's new' series up if anyone is interested.

Just started using it, still waiting for all content to download, looks very good but time will tell.A shame you have to download it all as with slow internet takes an age.

Shame not to see an ESX 24 update - after all Apple bought Recmatica and we've been hoping that this technology would be incorporated into the new update - no sign of it yet though.

JXN    Said...

Just had a go with it,

Been a logic user since Logic 6 and updated a lot the way.

Verdict: not too impressed. If you see it like this, as an update there is not that much difference for the time it's taken to get here, the midi inserts are good, the flex pitch needs work (poly etc), track stacks.... Arnt they just groups in a folder.... The GUI will appeal to the garage band user..

New synth is nice,

Not into the idea off logic writing my drum sequences for me at all.. (Garage band croud will love it)

If I could take my money back I would, but it so cheep I'd have probably paid the same for just the update to find out anyway.

Ill be considering the the switch to Ableton if the direction keeps heading this way for logic...

Negative rant over ;-)

Cheers.

The Mountain Lion requirement is unfortunate. I hate being forced to do OS upgrades just to run new software.

Mattsynth    Said...

I agree with you Brian, I also hate upgrading my OS just so I can run software. It screws up everything and I spend day getting it all to work again. I use Cubase and they seem to keep all there updates backward compatible for a long time. I have been very happy with Cubase 6. I have never tried Logic but considered it a few times.

mee3d    Said...

I just see this as an update and that's just fine for me, the GUI is better, there's quite a few nice instruments and some better compositional tools - and its cheap enough (and I spent 1000 bucks on it some years ago). I updated from Lion to ML to run this and everything worked as it did before - It was painless for me. Not that happy about no 32bit support but 90% of my plugins are 64bit already and the ones that aren't, such as Waldorfs PPG 3v /Largo are kinda address in the Logic X app itself! People complained that FCPX was a radical change and now people are complaining that LPX wasn't radical enough... as a seasoned Logic user, I'm enjoying it.

Dr kimono    Said...

Incremental upgrade Can be a good thing. I've been using logic from the beginning. I use less than 10% of its facilities. I play live, jazz/electronics, work with singer songwriters and do post production composition for movie trailers. What do You Need an upgrade on. Logics a great recording program, and linear composition. Live is just great at writing. Let them play to their strengths, not become watered down versions of the same 'do-everything' program

Rich    Said...

I'm very impressed. I've used Logic since v4.8 back in 2002 and (unlike most who are getting very upset at the changes Apple are making), I think it gets better with every new revision. Flex Pitch is great, as are most of the new plugins. Shame there's no EXS update, but I have a feeling that will be in the next version in a few years time.

Doris    Said...

Hmm. After all this time and we get features that have long been implemented in other DAWs. Was expecting something special not what appears very much to be just some added features and a new color tint.

Logic X unfortunately has no more global chord track. Apple loops are thus become useless(Logic X as well?):-(

AKA    Said...

I wonder when you import loops if they finally play in tempo when you preview them (not apple loops). External instruments drop outs maybe resolved? I'm gonna wait for further reviews.
