Ratings and Reviews
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.
Good, but insane MIDI handling.
Overall a competent DAW, and capable of producing commercial quality results. Though it has to be said there are better third party alternatives for many of the effects, the modulation fx especially are poor.
A good DAW if you do pretty much all your synth stuff "in the box". Once you get involved with multiple hardware synths or own a hardware sequencer or two things get frustrating real fast. Logic has a crazy way of handling MIDI inputs from hardware. Whatever bit of gear it comes from, whatever MIDI channel it’s on, Logic simply sums the lot together and sends it to all record-armed MIDI tracks which then record it all. So if your hardware sequencer sends on channel 1 and your Moog is on channel 2 then trying to use a soft synth on channel 3 means the sequencer simply over-records on all three tracks. As does the controller keyboard.
Pretty much every other DAW on the planet allows you to select MIDI hardware input ports a track at a time. Not Logic. It just sends all the incoming MIDI to all the tracks. If you can get your head around the MIDI "environment" window you can stop that by forcing each controller to only operate one synth, but at the expense of needing a keyboard/controller for every synth AND not being able to record any MIDI at all, just audio.
So 3 stars.
Annoying American voices
I am new to Logic Pro, and when I downloaded the program it came with a load of intro’s to tell me what was new in Logic Pro X. SAdly they are all in USA voices and they are really irritating and far to fast to be really any help. Mostly confusing and simply take up disk space. I cannot find anything to tell me why I have not got the metronome and clock in the pop up menu as I keep on seeing in all the help and educational courses. May seem trivial but, all these little things add up to more USA confusions when try to comprehend the simple things. I noticed when I use the in program help wow is it ever slow and grinds along wasting much time. Still I found a good English course which I am enjoying
