Apple’s professional music production software Logic Pro X has just received a major update, introducing new smart tempo detection technology and a number of powerful effect plug-ins, which gives musicians even more creative control and flexibility with their projects.
Dubbed ‘Smart Tempo’, the new advanced tempo detection technology automatically manages tempo across all the content in a project. Apple says the feature gives users the freedom to record naturally without a metronome or click track, and at the same time have their performance stay in sync with any other tempo-based content or features in a project. It also makes it easy to combine recordings from different sources with varying tempos.
The new powerful effect plug-ins include ChromaVerb, Vintage EQ, Step FX and Phat FX.
- ChromaVerb is an advanced new algorithmic reverb plug-in with a colorful interactive interface that allows users to add space and depth to tracks and simulate a wide range of acoustic spaces, including Rooms, Chambers, Theaters, Halls and more.
- Vintage EQ features three plug-ins authentically modeled after some of the most sought after hardware EQs from the 1950s to 1970s — Vintage Graphic EQ, Vintage Tube EQ and Vintage Console EQ.
- Phat FX is a powerful new multi-effect that adds warmth, punch and presence to synths, guitar, bass and drums.
- Step FX adds rhythmic movement to any track by arranging filters, effects and independent step sequencers to control treatments over time.
The update also includes a variety of new content, including new Drummers, vintage brush kits for the Drum Kit Designer feature and more than 800 additional loops. To grab the latest Logic Pro X 10.4 update, hit up this link.
