Apple updates Logic Pro to v10.5

Apple

Apple today unveiled a major update to Logic Pro X with a professional version of Live Loops, a completely redesigned sampling workflow, and new beat-making tools.

Susan Prescott, Apple's vice president of Apps Product Marketing:

The Mac and Logic Pro X are essential tools used by the world's top musicians and producers to create the music that we all love. Logic Pro X 10.5 represents the biggest update to Logic since the launch of Logic Pro X, with powerful new tools that will inspire every artist — from those just getting started with Logic, to those already using it to produce Grammy Award-winning albums. We can't wait to hear what these artists create next.

Release Notes

Live Loops:

  • Compose music by arranging and triggering cells in a grid using loops, samples, and your recordings.
  • Perform and capture freeform arrangement ideas into the tracks area.
