Seems to be a HUGE update... lots of improvements as well, and (for now) very snappier. As always, keep the previous version for your own safety

Honestly, the bugs just over shadow an otherwise positive update

Can't believe it, they still haven't fixed the stupid bug where "Catch" intermittently activates in the Piano roll when clicking notes or background
Makes the Piano roll absolutely PAINFUL to use for drum editing where you're not using editing with CYCLE on

God ****ing damn it!!! Still no plug-in delay compensation for automation. This can't be real!!!



Please write to Apple and make a report: https://www.apple.com/feedback/logic-pro.html
Information about this hilarious problem: Serious old bug (Broken PDC) completely ignored by the Apple Logic X programmers!

Honestly I don't know why they even bothered with the update after reading this.

Everyone uses automation & third party plugins these days.

Logic is practically unusable for Professional use.

I suggest everyone working in the Logic department STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND ALL WORK TOGETHER TO FIX THIS IMMEDIATELY. ABSOLUTE DISGRACE^

Hyped for this update. Any compatibility issues?

Seems pretty stable for now. I opened recent projects without any issues.

This looks great for folks wanting FL Studio & Ableton style workflows. Maybe I can implement some of this, though none of it fits my workflow. Or maybe there are some new MIDI loops included. I do use those sometimes. Unfortunately for me, I'm looking for a different type of workflow enhancements. Cool to see Apple continuing to update though, especially when they're free.

I wish LPX was more friendly to external sequencers. Not having to record enable tracks to receive MIDI from the outside world would be a great start. An option to not auto record enable selected tracks would also help. This is the main reason I switched to Studio One, but I miss some LPX features & instruments.

Resizable mixer tracks (height). Visual options (skins). Ability to save multi-output routing for VIs. Rename plugin inserts. Better organization of channel strip settings. I imagine these are some easy additions if more folks wanted them. I'll continue to submit suggestions.

I really hate to be that whining guy but all Logic users please really do take the time and make a report to Apple about the missing PDC for side-chains and automation.

I know this form is a bit cumbersome and it's easy to think that some other guy is already reporting this issue. No, please go over and tell Apple that literally any UAD user for example can't use Logic Pro X 10.5 to it's full extent: https://www.apple.com/feedback/logic-pro.html

C'mon man.
How can you make a statement like that when there is so much evidence to the contrary?
I get it, the automation thing can be a huge hassle and they really should fix it.
But the statement above is just flat earther style out of touch with reality.

It's been running stable here so far as well. Opened some big projects (after backing up the .logicx files, or course) and it seems snappier than 10.4.8 and as stable as 10.4.8 was. I'm on Mojave, btw. Haven't had the time to study what's new yet. However, I quite like the idea of EXS being replaced. It was a a slow process to create and map sampled instruments before. Now you drag and drop to a free inspector area and there you go. It's neat.

I don't think this is only focused towards electronic producers. Samples are everywhere in music... And I can see the point of using cells for pretty much any genre. It will at least force you to think differently and who knows what may come out of it? I know it won't suit everyone, but I'm tempted to try it on an odd track just for experimentation. And I know Live has had it for ages, I just simply couldn't get my head around it. The UI is just SO unfriendly to me...

Cheers, guys.

Done!
Thanks man. You've made this easy for me. This really is a big issue that needs to be addressed. Hopefully this approach works. Good luck!

Will Logic 10.5 fix Loud noise blast

Is this the first time that Autosampler has been included in Logic? Major time saver over having to dive out to MainStage to use it.

The clips functionality seems pretty straightforward and everything seems stable up to now.

This one is a biggie - Trigger cells and other functions in Live Loops with support for Novation Launchpad (Launchpad, Launchpad MK2, Launchpad Mini, Launchpad Mini MK3, Launchpad Pro, Launchpad S, Launchpad X)

I can not find the velocity-range option in Sampler, even when I open the "details". Did they just remove it? I used this all the time.

From the release notes:

Quote:
There are new commands to Slip and Rotate content in regions.
It doesn't say whether that's audio, midi, or both, but it's intriguing.

There are probably 10 different 3rd party plugins that I could sell after this update!
(I mean I probably won't but I could!)

I love this update! Finally EXS got reincarnated in superior form. I'm glad they left Ultrabeat for what it is (now not part of Drum Machine Designer anymore) and gave it HD graphics finally!

I had emailed them about it so I can complain: I wish they had an easier way to do clip gain, and that you could move the tracks on the mixer when Logic goes and moves a bus because you automate it, for example. I want to move that bus back where it was!

Yes, I guess John Powell, Sean Callery, Billie Eilish's producer, and countless others aren't "professionals."

Did it just now, really appreciate the commitment to the issue, I'm tired of the buggy PDC as well. They need to fix it.

Weird doesn't happen here, do have the catch options on? ctrl click on the catch icon, I switch all those off as it's so annoying having the page move when you don't want it too.

With a few superficial GUI updates to make everything look "new," this could easily be Logic 11 and cost $200 or more.

This is really just awesome to have right now!

John and Sean are not mixing their mock-ups and pre production in Logic afaik. John uses it as Sequencer mainly and bidule hosts all sample libraries in bidule going straight into pro tools hdx.

thanks for checking - it's very intermittent but guarantee you will happen under certain conditions - unfortunately don't know what the pattern is.

yep, been using logic for, damn, 18 years? wow...the catch settings are all off, i'd hack the app to remove catch completely from the app if I could

I've tried everything, new install, different computers, new prefs..etc..
many are getting this issue but it's intermittent
