At Last…Logic 10.3

Playlists…have come to Logic.

Amen..now if we can only have the ability to move channels around in the mixer.

This looks like a pretty big update in a lot of areas. But here’s the rub..it’s only for Mac OS Sierra…which does not support Pro Tools 11 or my audio interface.

But here we are in the accelerated age. And this bump in the road  ( new interface and Pro Tools 12) is a small price to pay for the power and speed of current DAWs.

This also will force me into Thunderbolt territory (which is already going the way of the Dodo thanks to USB C).

Kudos to the Gearslutz Website for being on the bleeding edge of technology.

 

 

Logic X 10.2

My composition Mac Program of choice has just had a major upgrade, one which includes Alchemy, an amazing synth that was created and developed by Camel Audio. It seems that Apple has bought the entire company so I imagine that we will be seeing the inclusion of Camel Space and Camel Phat in Logic before long.

This synth does most types of synthesis ( although I didn’t see FM or Wavetable) and even tackles Additive which has been a tough sell to the synth buying public so far. The Sampler module will import EXS samples and the Granular Module will take in standard wave files. The closest competition to Alchemy would probably be Omnisphere by Spectrasonics (which I don’t have).

There are quite a few performance upgrades in this update as well.

I am still waiting for Playlists and Channel Moving in The Mixer Page…pleaseAlchemy?
