99% of plugins I am using are 32 bit, and they don't work in Logic Pro X. Massive fail, Apple!

Massive fail? really? Don't you just use the version you have, which worked fine until the recent release, and wait until the plug ins you need are rolled out in 64 bit version over the next few months, and then decide if you want to upgrade?

I suppose you think PT11 is a massive fail too, since it's all 64-bit? 100% of my plugins are 64-bit, so no problems for me!

If I have Logic 9 installed and want Logic X, does it overwrite version 9? Or does it install a separate version of X? If so do I just then delete version 9 (move to trash) and all my plugins and content will remain the same?

Thanks :)

Wrong, I would actually say that the massive fail should be blamed on your plugin developers. It's not like 64 bit technology was just discovered the other day....if these guys can't be bothered to rewrite some code and update their plugins after 4 years, perhaps it's time to dump them!

All companies should be forced to update plugins and software to 64 bit compatibility. 32 bit software and machines are part of the past not the future.

They're separated. Deleting either one or both will not disturb your plugins. So yeah, your plugins and content will remain the same. Logic Pro X only supports 64 bits plugins, just so you know :D

noone is forcing you to update you know....and if youre any serious about this you shouldnt upgrade for a while still...
most likely a 64 bit version will be launched soon. if not, then those plug ins are outdated anyway and you should really get new, supported ones.
cant imagine it to be too big of a problem...

Exactly. But in the few cases where you want to keep using 32-bit plugins, it's nice that Logic Pro 9 doesn't just disappear.

I've been very impressed with LPX. LP9 was great, but this is really something else. Nice work, Apple. Looking forward to Aperture 4 or X or whatever you call it.

It's about time that all 3rd party plugins are 64 bit. Apple created the bridge to help aid in the transition from 32 to 64, but after a certain time the 3rd party plugins should have been replaced with 64 bit capable versions. This is not an Apple problem, imo.

The thick of it
I was just about to ask for an opinion on what everyone thought of X. I really want to make the jump. It looks slick.

I really like it. I've worked with Logic since version 7, and although I liked its power and versatility, the interface needed work. Apple got it right with the new version.

I'm glad the update is out so quickly; I was working with a software instrument the other day and Logic crashed, just vanished from the screen. Hopefully that bug is fixed now.

What do you guys think of Logic vs Propellerhead Reason? I know they serve very different uses, but the solo musician without a lot of physical tracks is where I'm at. I have an old version of Reason I've been using and it's great. Not sure which one (or both) to upgrade to.

I'm more impressed that you have 100 plugins!

lol, most apple users are so reliant on presets it's not even funny. I just sigh in professional environments, "I could do this if you bought this plugin". How were you hired again?

Switching from the Audio File Editor to the Audio Track Editor after enabling Flex Pitch.
Selecting or moving notes in the Piano Roll.
Saving a patch with an edited Smart Controls layout.
Several Software Instrument tracks are created in quick succession from Logic Remote.
Changing a velocity range in the EXS Editor while playing a note.
Deleting an Arrangement marker.
A second lane of MIDI data is added with the pencil in the Step Editor.
• Fixes an issue that could cause content downloading to hang.
• Logic Pro X should no longer hang if the Length parameter in the Step Editor was double-clicked.
• Logic Pro X no longer hangs when a settings folder containing more than 138 settings files is accessed from Logic Remote.


Track Stacks

• Tuner is now available when selecting the main track of a Track Stack.
• The output routing on a Drummer Track that has been manually reassigned to an Aux is no longer reassigned to No Output when changing drum characters.
• It is again possible to switch Aux channels that are part of a Multi Output Software Instrument between mono and stereo.
• Resolves an issue in which a copied main track of a Summing Track Stack did not maintain the correct routing for sub-tracks.
• Track Stacks that contain both software instrument and audio tracks will no longer be inadvertently flattened by loading a Patch.

• You should now be able to select rests and bar repeat objects in the Score window.
• Mapped Staff Styles no longer improperly show a Transpose value.


General

• Create New Track with Next Channel now works as expected for multi-timbral Software Instrument or External MIDI tracks.
• When Follow is selected in the Drummer Editor, a track is now automatically assigned for Drummer to follow.
• When exporting projects to AAF, 24-bit audio files are no longer converted to 16-bit.
• Resolves an issue in which in some cases notes copied in the Piano Roll ended up at unexpected positions.
• Shift-clicking in the timeline to adjust the cycle range now works as expected.
• The Mixer now correctly shows channel strips when navigating between multiple folders in the Main window.
• Take regions now appear consistently in the Track Audio Editor when they are selected.
