Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Welcome, part of Logic Pro X New Features.
- [Scott] Welcome to Logic Pro X New Features. I'm Scott Hirsch and I'll be your author and guide as we explore all the new features available in the most current Logic update, Logic Pro 10.3. As we've seen in the last few point releases, Apple is very serious about not only improving usability, but also providing extremely powerful additions with each incremental release. We saw some great feature enhancements in the last few point releases, with powerful new instruments like Alchemy, Drum Designer, and more electronic music tools.
And this time, with the 10.3 update, we're gifted some awesome workflow enhancements like track alternatives, true stereo panning, (drumbeat) and support for the new laptop touch bar. In addition, we now have some great sharing and collaborating tools, like Music XML Import and Share to GarageBand for iOS. In addition to all these tangible upgrades, there is an across-the-board revamp of the graphics and the internal mix engine now operates at 64-bit.
I'll identify and demonstrate how all these new features of the 10.3 update work in this chapter. Because Apple has been so generous with these point releases, we structured this course to be updated incrementally with each new significant upgrade. (playful woodwind track) This first chapter will cover the newest upgrade, the 10.3 update, and the second chapter will include the new features and content that I covered for the 10.2.1 update, and so on across all past updates into the later chapters.
In the future, this course will continue to be updated in this fashion as new releases are posted. For now, stay tuned for a detailed look at some significant new features and updates to Logic Pro X.
