solid and improved

Recent changes to the UI have been polished in 10.3.2 - text rendering has improved on non-retina display, and some strange bugs with third party plugins in 10.3 are gone in 10.3.2 (though I did have some issues with Omnisphere 1). Gradually one gets used to the updated UI - lighter and flatter than before, a little “iOS-ified”. Logic’s library of sounds keeps growing, and the included plugins, some of which go back to Logic 5, still are of outstanding quality and more than hold their own ground. Audio region processing (Functions -> Selection-based processing) is great, the A-B options are nice. The mixer has flexible time-saving routing. On a sufficiently fast computer Logic gets out of the way, and is reliable for long hours, and complex projects. Highly recommended.

Logic Pro X : is it as good as it’s name lives up to?

yes, it lives up to its name. When I first set out to buy this DAW i was expecting maybe a handful of bug fix updates, yet whats actually happened is full-fledged updates which make your DAW feel new again, With some much needed GUI design updates. The (What I call) Alchemy update, Just goes to show that apple are still dedicated to there pro users, and also suggests that we will continue to see absolute awesome updates in the future.

When I first got this DAW some many few years ago now, I thought it was brilliant, possibly the best DAW I have used (And i’ve used pretty much all of them, such as ableton, cubase, pro tools - except FL Studio, like really?) Even though back then it was buggy as hell (Don’t worry they're all gone now).

Today, well today I still get excited everytime theres a new update, heck, even when I open a project!

All in all, You can’t go wrong, Out of the box you get only the best included plugins, Yes, Logic comes with a whole array of seriously powerful plugins - For instance, I a load of powerful third party plugins, yet i still find myself using Logic’s own.

Worth every penny!

Missing Loops - Unable to Download

I’ve been using Logic X for around a year - it’s an awesome bit of kit, but it’s not all been problem free. Predominantly using NI, but even without NI VST instruments, there’s a whole host of Logic instruments that I regularly use. In the latest update however, the Apple Loops don’t appear to be working correctly - if I select an ‘instrument’ I’m finding a whole load of loops which don’t appear to be downloadable or playable. There’s a small arrow pointing downward in a circle next to the loop name, but clicking on it doesn’t do anything. I’ve re-indexed the loops but this hasn’t changed anything.

No idea how to fix it, but if it wasn’t for that, it would be a 5 star rating.
