  • Logic Pro X review

    Apple has done a great job of simplifying the entire interface without actually removing much. In fact, it’s actually been able to fit even more into the simplified UI by offering one-click access to functions that were in the past tucked away in menus or only accessible through modifier keys.


    Apple loops, list editors, and the browser feel less cluttered and easier to navigate thanks to the larger UI elements, but look relatively the same on the right hand side of the screen. The Library, on the other hand, has been given a new location on the left side of the screen next to the track headers and the Inspector.

    $200 is an insanely low price for everything that Apple has been able to do in Logic Pro X. It might have been a long time coming, but there’s something to be said for how much you get with Logic Pro these days for what used to cost upwards of $500. Close to 20GB of Drum Kit Designer samples isn’t the half of it.
