Apple updates Logic Pro to v8.0.2

Apple has updated Logic Pro to v8.0.2. This update addresses specific customer and compatibility issues of Logic Pro 8.0. It includes Waveburner 1.5.2 and Impulse Response Utility 1.0.2, which address issues for Waveburner 1.5 and Impulse Response Utility 1.0 respectively.

If you are using Logic Node you will need to update your Logic Node application on connected computers as well. After running the updater you will find an updated Logic Node installer called Logic Node 8.0.2.dmg in your Utilities folder.
