Hey There, and Happy 10.6!
In what I would say is a shocking turn of events, today Logic Pro sees its 2nd major update of 2020.
Released back in May, the blockbuster 10.5 update arrived only 6 short months ago. Before 10.5, Logic Pro’s last major update was back in 2018.
But if you’ve been paying attention, the news from Apple HQ has been nothing short of seismic.
First, Apple announced it will be replacing Intel processors in Macs for their own Apple Silicon. Now Mac will finally enjoy the fluidity and power already living inside iPhones, iPads, and Watches.
Then, this past Tuesday Apple announced the first 3 Silicon-powered Macs.
Not only that, but today’s release of macOS Big Sur brings the feel of iOS to Mac. Now, finally, Mac and iOS devices will be living on the same processors and ecosystem.
And today’s 10.6 update is part of that transition to Silicon and Big Sur.
Logic Pro comes to us with a shiny, updated logo. Optimized for Apple Silicon, and some other interesting updates.
While 10.4 and 10.5 delivered massive advancements to Logic Pro, 10.6 is all about the details.
But thanks to an update in both Logic Pro and Logic Remote, your iOS device is now even more awesome. Because Logic’s Step Sequencer is now fully accessible with Logic Remote.
This means you can now enjoy a tactile beat-making experience using your iOS device.
Couple that with:
- Full support for all Novation Launchpads (rotation no longer required to use with Live Loops)
- A new selection of Keyboard patches in the Logic Library
- A new drag-and-drop zone in the track headers for Sampler
- New Drum Machine Designer Tutorial Template
And plenty of other workflow enhancements and bug fixes. It appears the team at Apple is developing Logic Pro faster than ever before 🙂
