The industry-leading application for music creation and audio production dramatically broadens the capabilities of computer-based studio environments with Logic Pro 7. The first choice of many prominent musicians and producers, Logic Pro 7 provides the most comprehensive collection of music creation tools, all for $999.

Create your own music using an advanced spectrum of features and tools for computer based music production. Logic Express provides a step up from GarageBand for aspiring musicians, producers and composers without breaking the bank. With the same flexible layout as Logic Pro, you can dive deeper into the creation and manipulation of audio and MIDI, for just $299.
A collection of new Jam Packs for GarageBand were also made available today.

I guess this quashes the "ProBand," rumors. $999 is a bit pricey but for pros it's a comprehensive studio solution that's cheaper than most on the market.

I think it's awesome that Apple switches to a over the year, whatever day of the week release schedule as opposed to releasing stuff on fixed days or dates. Lowers the anticipitaion a bit, albeit not much with us jumping every rumor. :D
But no rumors for this one... Apple did it again.

Good for Audio pro users... nice seeing apple and mac in every area, still missing some points in Electrical engineering but I have time... I know it's no apple's fault, only those "idiots" who make my simulation program.... anyway... Good for the people who can enjoy a mac while doing music...

Audio = iTunes > GarageBand > LogicExpress > LogicPro

Video = DVDPlayer > iMovie > FinalCut Express > FinalCut Pro

Optical = DVDPlayer > iDVD > ? > DVDStudio Pro

Image = Preview > iPhoto > ? > Motion

Text = AppleWorks > Keynote > ?




Well it would seem we are still missing some application in this Apple trend. I say we will be seeing a DVDStudio Express, and some other applications. DVDStudio Express will give you greater control over DVD creation and formats than iDVD and not cost as much or have all the features of DVDStudio Pro.

There is my Rumour ;) :D

They [Apple] are really cranking out some nice looking products. Now I just need to get some money to buy a them and a new Mac to run them! :D

Glad to see that they are still hard at work!

Maya - you beet me to it. I was thinking the exact same thing when I was reading through the thread.

I must admit I do like their thought process. The difference between FCE and FCP is stuff I'd never want to use at home, but it has somethings iMovie can't do from what I've read (still waiting on my iMac G5 with FCE installed so I can't comment on it yet)

Eddie Cue (Vice President Applications of Apple) did the Business Track keynote at the Popkomm conference that started in Berlin today. So today is a special music day, at least in Europe.

This software looks like it will make the pros happy. I'm still learning garage band ... i'm far from pro. Maybe someday.

Apple are still missing a VERY important tool for music users: a "red book" compliant CD authoring tool. In fact, there is no such tool in OS X that I'm aware of, so I'm still using Emagic's WaveBurner Pro in OS 9. Very frustrating. What's worse is that WaveBurner Pro had a big notice on it when I bought it well over a year ago that OS X support was in the works.

Argh!

WaveBurner Pro should really be brought to OS X to compliment DVD Studio Pro... pro products for audio and video.

Regardless, Logic 7 does look amazing.

Dude, you have this seriously messed up.

Audio Production = GarageBand > Logic Express > Logic Pro

Audio Viewing = iTunes

Video Production = iMovie > Final Cut Express > Final Cut Pro

Video Viewing = Quicktime Player

DVD Production = iDVD > DVD Studio Pro (there's no middle gap as DVDSP addresses both the Pro and Prosumer markets)

DVD Viewing = DVD Player

Image Viewing = Preview (if you insist on including it) > iPhoto

Motion Graphics = Motion (what on earth does it have to do with images? by definition they don't move.)

Text = TextEdit > AppleWorks

Presentations = Keynote

From the press release:

Additionally, users can compile and burn CDs to the Red Book standard with WaveBurner, a stand alone mastering and CD burning application included with Logic Pro 7.

WaveBurner -is- included in Logic pro 7!

It'll directly cut Redbook complient CDs.
They talk about it in the "Complete Music Studio" "features" section.

Logic Audio/Big Box Upgrade?

It looks like a Logic Express 7 upgrade is only available to Logic Express 6 owners and not Logic Audio/Big Box owners, but you can upgrade to Logic Pro from Logic Gold/Platinum - which is really unfair!!!!
Anybody see an Audio upgrade?
