    Apple today updated its professional audio editing software Logic Pro X to version 10.3.2, introducing bug fixes, performance improvements, and a couple of new features.

    Today's update brings three new Drummers able to play percussion in the styles of Pop, Songwriter, and Latin, and the new Drummer loops can be added to songs and customized with performance controls.

    Apple has also improved the responsiveness of the graphical user interface, introduced an automatic time align feature for improved morphing in Alchemy, and debuted new tools for fine tuning the pitch of an audio region. The full change list is below:
    Apple has also updated Logic Pro X companion app MainStage 3 with stability and performance improvements.

    Logic Pro X can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $199.99. [Direct Link]

    MainStage 3 can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $29.99. [Direct Link]

    Can anyone confirm if it runs on the latest High Sierra beta? 10.3 and 10.3.1 crashes on startup.

    Yes, that's one of the many sound effects available in Logic.

    On the "Choose a Project" screen, if I select "Empty Project," the app crashes as soon as I "[c]hoose a track type." On the "Choose a Project" screen, if I select anything OTHER than "Empty Project," the app immediately crashes. Anyone else?

    I'd seriously love some Logic cricket samples.

    Damn! I hope beta 3 comes soon and fixes it. I got people getting after me to start their production, as well as in the middle of recording an EP myself >.<

    Don’t use beta software in the midst of projects!

    I know, I know! I did it to myself :p

    That being said, I've been beta testing OS X since Mountain Lion and haven't had any major incompatibilities like this. I didn't even have issues with the first public or dev beta of HS.

    I love what apple has done with logic. It's one of the products with which they've done their best. -- at least in the sense that it's probably the best value pro music production app; filled with high quality processors and instruments.

    I wasn't sure what to think when they bought it from emagic all those years ago. While it was neck and neck with cubase and cakewalk back in the day, it's now definitely a step above that competition.

    Pro tools is still more widely used in top studios, but I believe that has more to do with legacy since a decade ago computers needed extra cards with DSP chips to handle large projects; and what's more, Pro tools is only preferred by many of those who are recording and editing live music rather than having a electronic production focus.

    And... for what it's worth, GarageBand is nothing short of remarkable for its price: $0.00

    Logic is BY FAR the best Apple App ever made. The power coupled with the ease of use and easy pairing with GarageBand are second to none. I remember when Logic 7 was $1000 and it was confusing as hell to boot. Then in Logic 8 they made it more "GarageBand Like" and that's when I bit. Of course when they did this a lot of "Pros" whined that they were making it "too much like GarageBand". Nope, the power was still there and today, far exceeds LP7. And only $500 for LP8 seemed like a great deal because it was 1/2 the price of Logic 7 and a LOT better. But I still had to buy all 5 jam packs individually at about $100 a pop. THEN...they lowered the price to $200 and threw in all the JamPacks for free...ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!???? So it went from about $1500 for the functionality in LP7 to $200 in LP9/10!!! And with all the new features since LP8 (Flex pitch, Flex time, new synths, drummer, etc.), it is BY far the best DAW on the market. Great Job Apple!!! And appreciate the love for this amazing Pro App. :):D

    What does Time Machine need to do that it doesn't already?

    I anticipated an update this week because of previous updates in the third week of July, but think its rather an odd release given that Logic Pro 11 is bound for release very soon. I have a source (close friend) who works in the developmental team for the Logic Pro app and he stated that they are in the final stages of the massive update. From what he tells me, we should be seeing a new native sampler plugin as well as some new native instrument plugins. They have taken a page from Ableton as far audio manipulation and have created new processes to work with. No set date yet for the release, but I'm definitely excited for it.

    LP11 will probably launch alongside the iMac Pro in December.
