Apple released Logic Pro X, the newest version of the pro audio software that is my go-to tool for writing and recording music.
Here's a thoughtful first-look review from Jim Dalrymple of The Loop:
Logic Pro X is the best music software release I’ve seen from Apple in a while. They added a lot of pro features, but at the same time managed to make the app more approachable—that’s a difficult thing to do.
Overall, Logic Pro X is a great release and for $199, you can’t go wrong.
I'm a little disappointed there is no discounted upgrade pricing, but $200 for pro audio software as feature-rich as Logic Pro is, ultimately, hard to be too mad about.
