2 weeks ago, Apple announced & launched the latest version of it’s pro audio recording software, Logic Pro X.
It’s been a long time in the making since it’s last iteration in ’09 – although it had continued to be a powerhouse in recording function. However this time round, they have improved it even further. A whole new look, a simplified interface, a more logical and ergonomic layout of regularly used buttons etc. Overall, a really nice new update to the pro software family.
However, the major thing I’m excited about now having played with it a few times with jobs over the last couple of weeks, is that it also works with a new iPad app they’ve released, called Logic Remote. This is an app that essentially mirrors the major functions of Logic, buttons, sliders, settings – that you can control live on the iPad; with it being reflected immediately, with no delay, on the Logic Pro X screen.
This would mean that for voice over artists like me who don’t have a screen and mouse in their booths to control recording stop/start etc, it can all now be controlled remotely via the iPad over WiFi. This is a major bonus! No more popping my head out of the booth to make sure it’s all running again after a stop. Brilliant bit of technology.
And the better part is – this app Apple have released, is completely free, and integrates seamlessly upon launch.
Another reason why I love Apple stuff so much!
