Today, Apple updated Logic Pro with powerful new features available on Mac and iPad. With the new Mastering Assistant and professional palette of intuitive sound shaping tools, musicians can deliver a release-ready mix faster than ever. Logic Pro for Mac now gets incredible sample manipulation with Sample Alchemy and the radical reshaping and rearranging capabilities of Beat Breaker. Logic Pro for iPad offers even more powerful features, including Quick Sampler Recorder mode, which allows users to quickly capture “found sounds” with the iPad’s built-in microphone and instantly create custom, playable instruments. Producers and beat makers with their own collection of samples can quickly build kits or custom instruments using enhanced multitasking features like Split View and Stage Manager. And users can easily work between Mac and iPad with project round-tripping, allowing them to make music on the go or in the studio.
New features for Mac and iPad
Mastering Assistant gives creators a quick and easy way to add the final professional finish for a release-ready mix. Once a mix is complete, Mastering Assistant can instantly analyze the audio and make expert refinements to the sound, adjusting elements such as dynamics, frequency balance, timbre and loudness. Creators can also use Mastering Assistant’s initial processing as a starting point and then fine-tune each setting with intuitive controls, creating a mix that sounds great in the car or in the club.
Logic Pro now supports 32-bit float recording when used with compatible audio interfaces. This helps artists minimize the digital clipping that can occur when recording more dynamic instruments or performances. With 32-bit float, even recordings made at lower levels can be easily amplified without raising the noise floor, ensuring studio-quality audio and flexibility in post-production.
New in Logic Pro for Mac
Sample Alchemy and Beat Breaker were introduced earlier this year on Logic Pro for iPad and are now available in Logic Pro for Mac. Sample Alchemy allows users to transform a single audio sample into a playable instrument using a variety of techniques including granular, additive, and spectral synthesis. Artists can now create a wide range of unique soundbeds, pads, effects and rhythms, pushing the boundaries of creativity.
The Beat Breaker multi-effects plug-in allows creators to radically reshape and rearrange audio in real time, cut up audio, rearrange it, and add scratch effects. By changing the speed, direction, volume and number of repetitions for each segment, musicians can effortlessly define complex patterns that can be changed on the fly.
The Tools menu in the Tracks area and the time-based editors now include Slip and Rotate tools, which allow users to move content within audio and software instrument areas without changing region boundaries.
Today’s update to Logic Pro for Mac introduces two new sound packs: the Hybrid Textures sound pack includes a collection of 70 patches, as well as over 80 Apple Loops with Sample Alchemy, while the Vox Melodics sound pack features a diverse collection of over 475 lyrical contains music. phrases, hooks, layered harmonies, FX and one-shots.

The Quick Sampler plugin allows users to quickly create sampler instruments from virtually any sound. The new Recorder mode allows users to create instruments and drum kits by recording audio directly using the built-in microphone or a connected audio input, allowing instrument creation to happen virtually anywhere.
Now creators can seamlessly switch between Logic Pro and other apps like Voice Memos or the Files app using Split View and Stage Manager. Split View allows users to open two different apps (or two windows from the same app) by splitting the screen into resizable views, while Stage Manager allows users to resize windows, view multiple overlapping windows in a single view, or tap to switch between apps. and more.
Users can quickly find the perfect sound in the browser by simply dragging a finger up or down to preview multiple samples, loops or instruments. Additionally, users can select and drag their own samples from the Files app into Logic Pro to easily build drum kits or add stems to a project.
Logic Pro expands its popular in-app lessons with additional instruction on a wide range of topics, including Mastering Assistant, Sample Alchemy, Beat Breaker, beatmaking, automation, sound packs and playing surfaces. The Hybrid Textures sound packs also come to Logic Pro for iPad, offering creators new material to explore the power and depth of Sample Alchemy.
