    No rumors on Logic Pro X? I've already googled and seen most of the fake leaks, etc. I know that Xavier dude said they're working hard on it, but otherwise is there really no other scoop on this?

    I know Logic 9 works fine. I use it and love it...but we're going on 4 years here without a major update (and don't tell me about 64bit in 9.1). This app usually only went 2 years between major revisions, so we have to be close, right??

    If we're getting close, I would imagine someone out there has their hands on it. I've heard enough about iPhones. We all know we'll have an iPhone 5s within 9 months, so bring me some scoop on the pro app that hasn't had a major revision in 4 years.

    And considering it's been 4 years...I'm guessing this update will be quite substantial. I'm excited.

    My guess? Apple doesn't want to alienate the pro music producers like they did video editors.

    I mean there is alot of speculation out there but no major update in more than 4 years is way off. And thats a fact... So yeah im a bit concerned about that.

    I agree. Apple has really been lacking with it's pro apps and updates. I know they are probably stretched thin but Compressor looks a mess on my rMBP. I've noticed Apples' releases have become scattershot during the Cook era. Examples, the Lion preview, iPad 4, and 128 GB iPad. So I think it could be released any day now. Or never.

    So, I can't believe I hadn't seen this one, but Apple done got themselves a patent on melodyne like polyphonic note detection:


    AND, much like the Universal Audio plugins I've been drooling over lately, Logic's own compressor already sort of emulates classic compressors (I knew it mimicked different types of compressors, but didn't realize it was this specific)


    But who knows if they accurately MODEL the hardware they're based on...

    It'd be so awesome if the bulk of their plugins were to get an amp designer/pedalboard like refresh...and accurately emulate the classic hardware that this software is intended to replicate. I'd really flip if there were also some sort of tape machine emulation. Something big is coming! After all the tweaking from v5-v8, v10 will probably be huge...especially considering all the time they've put into it.

    I don't know if anyone's heard this but there was a Roland Synthesis Expo at Huddersfield in England a few months back. One of the tech guys basically let slip that Roland and a number of other companies were working together on a replacement/advancement for MIDI.:eek:

    This may be something that may feature if developed...
