Apple introduces Logic Pro 6 & Logic Express 6

At NAMM Apple streamlined its professional audio production software line by announcing Logic Pro 6 for professional musicians and Logic Express 6 for students and educators. Logic Pro 6 consolidates 12 pre-existing products into one comprehensive package for just $999 (US). Logic Express 6 provides a basic set of professional tools to allow students and educators to compose and produce music with sophisticated results at an affordable price of $299 (US).

Logic Pro 6 includes Logic Platinum and the entire line of 53 audio DSP plug-ins and professional-quality software instruments. Logic Pro 6 is a recording studio in a box with everything professional musicians and audio engineers need to compose, record, edit and mix their music, including professional software instruments, multitrack recorders, mixing desks and sound effect processors. Logic Pro 6 also includes the ability to create 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound, support for up to 128 audio tracks, virtually unlimited input channels and a sample rate of up to 192k.

Based on Logic Pro 6, Logic Express 6 is a computer music production application designed to fit the needs of students and educators with a basic set of professional tools to compose and produce music with sophisticated results. Logic Express 6 features powerful audio production tools, including over 28 effect plug-ins and sample-based software instruments. Logic Express 6 also includes support for up to 48 audio tracks, 12 input channels and a sample rate of up to 96k. Since everything learned in Logic Express 6 is directly transferable to Logic Pro 6, Logic Express 6 offers a smooth migration path to high-end audio production.

Logic Pro 6 and Logic Express 6 are part of Apple's complete line of music creation tools that address the needs of consumers, students, educators, creative pros and professional musicians alike. At the entry level, Apple's new GarageBand music application turns a Mac into a professional-quality musical instrument and recording studio. Jam Pack, an add-on music content package for GarageBand, expands the user's creative options by providing additional loops, software instruments, effects presets and guitar amps. Designed specifically for videographers and motion graphics professionals, Apple's Soundtrack music production tool provides creative pros with more than 4,000 professionally-recorded audio loops and sound effects to create professional-quality soundtracks, now available at an even more affordable price of just $199 (US).
