    Apple registered three new trademarks: Morph Pad, Ultrabeat, and Sculpture. They were registered on Jan. 15. They are all under the description of:
    Maybe these have already been announced as features and I just haven't heard. But if not, let the speculation begin!

    I read that Ultrabeat and Sculpture have to do with Apple's acquisition of Logic and a upcoming release of it, I believe. I saw those names mentioned, actually, in this month's Macworld magazine in an article about Logic, but I can't remember the specifics and I don't have the mag in front of me. Not sure what Morph Pad is...maybe it morphs your iPod into a musical instrument!

    Actually, I do remember now. Ultrabeat was a software drum synthesizing tool and I think Sculpture was a Guitar amp/synth type thing.

    Somebody find your copy of Macworld and get the specifics.

    My money is a software add-on to Garageband. Altho it is an anagram of "Mr Poh-Pad" so it could be a device to support the needs of any elderly people with less digestional control than they used to.

    I'm only guessing, you understand, don't go and think that I've got the skinny on all this ...

    They are NOT included in Logic Pro 6, and they may or may not be included in Pro 7. There is some speculation that they may be sold individually, as the previous set of plugs were, in spite of how weird that sounds- why bundle everything together only to start selling things piecemeal again. Even the folks that are heavily involved in Logic development and marketing don't really have an exact idea of which way it will be done. I certainly hope they will be included in 7, but the main thrust of 7 that is certain will be an updated GUI.

    My guess would be some physical (most likely) or virtual X/Y controller for crossfades, filter sweeps, anything where you can assign properties to an X/Y axis (maybe even X/Y/Z with touch/velocity sensing capability for the Z axis) and control a "morph" between the properties. I could see this being something that would have functionality in a variety of apps- audio, video, graphic arts, photography, and be usable like a trackpad on a laptop the rest of the time.
