This week continues our countdown to 2022 here on WLPR. And this week I wanted to show mix engineers why they might want to check out Logic Pro.
This follows right on the heels of last week’s 10 reasons why producers & beatmakers should check out Logic Pro.
This post is for anyone who considers themself a mix engineer but has never given Logic Pro a try.
Let’s be real – Logic has often been pegged as the musician and producer DAW. Sure, it might be great for writing and recording ideas. But the professionals wouldn’t possibly use Logic Pro as their DAW of choice. It’s unheard of!
#1 – pros do use Logic Pro. (Greg Wells recently said Atmos in Logic Pro is like, “flying a fighter jet with an undo button.”)
#2 – the mixing and editing tool kit in Logic Pro has exploded in the last 8 years:
- From switching your stereo session to Atmos with the flip of a setting
- To multiple, fantastic systems for comping and editing your tracks
- To opening plugins in Dual Mono and Multi Mono instances for processing each channel independently
Things are pretty awesome over here for us Logic users 🙂
So I recommend checking out the video above for why any mix engineer should consider demoing Logic Pro.
BTW – Try Out Logic Pro FREE for 90 days
Oh, and before we dig in – did you know Apple offers a 90-day free trial of Logic Pro?
Heck yeah! Just head over to Apple’s website to download the free Logic Pro trial:
Unlike other DAW trials out there, everything in Logic Pro is available with the 90-day trial. Every feature, plugin, instrument and sound is there for you to check out.
(Do note that you will need an Apple computer to try out Logic Pro.)

A Very Merry Christmas Chris!!!
Another nice presentation (does this sound like a stuck record?!!!!!)
It occurred to me that I feel so lucky having started with emagic back in the 80s, as I think the very steep learning curve of a DAW deters us off adopting a new platform. Of course back in those days, whilst non Apple users were able to embrace this wonderful system, all DAWs, and specifically emagic wasn’t as deep as Logic Pro is now.
One element I still have to get my head around which I feel needs better explanation is the LUFS standard, and how it compares with previous……. I maybe missed your explanation already?
Thanks so much Ross, and a Merry Christmas to you!
I appreciate you and anyone else who is already well familiar with Logic Pro for entertaining these 3 “10 Reason Why…” posts. As you obviously already are very familiar with How much Logic rules 🙂 But I just had to trumpet to those who haven’t tried Logic Pro yet why they might want to try it out.
And thank you for the recommendation regarding a post on LUFS and loudness! That’s actually been an idea in the back of my head for 2022.
This next year I plan on diving headfirst into more content on recording, mixing, etc. of course still focused on Logic Pro. But more on the craft of music making 🎶
