Apple's Logic Pro 10.7.5 is here with a FREE update filled with new features and enhancements that users have been eagerly awaiting. Check out our 10-video course by Logic expert Josh Carney to see everything new in Logic 10.7.5.
The Logic Pro team is constantly innovating and creating new features and enhancements for their dedicated users. Logic Pro 10.7.5 is just that kind of release. It's a crowd pleaser with some much asked for functionality and surprises. In this 10 video course Josh Carney dives into them all! And like all Logic releases, 10.7.5 has many enhancement and bug squashes designed to keep you moving forward with ease in your productions.
So what's the big deal? Well, check these out:
Nested Track Stacks - With its additional level of hierarchy, you can now place Track Stacks within a Track Stack. This makes for easier track management. For example, think about your drum tracks. To keep them organized, they are often placed together in a Track Stack. Often times there will be several different snare tracks, kick and hi-hat tracks. Now each of those similar groups can be "stacked" within the overall drum Track Stack.
A new Gain Tool in the tool box - Now there's a dedicated Gain Tool that provides quick, easy and precise adjustments to audio and MIDI regions without having to dive into the Inspector. Visual feedback includes a level line (as you're adjusting) and a dynamically scaled waveform display. Note that in the case of MIDI the Gain Tool adjusts the velocity of ALL the notes in the region.
MIDI plugin output chain can now be recorded directly to the track. This is big. Prior to this release Instrument Tracks only recorded your MIDI input. Now in Logic Pro 10.7.5 there's a new feature located in the MIDI plugin section of the channel strip called "Record MIDI to track here" (RMTTH). When inserted anywhere in the MIDI effects plugin chain, it will record MIDI from that point in the chain directly to the track. Upon playback RMTTH will ignore those already recorded MIDI FX in your channel strip so there'd no need to shut them off! Very slickly implemented!
Free Record - There's a new record option in the transport that allows for free, sans metronome recording with MIDI and audio. This may not sound like such a big deal until you realize just how powerful and simple this feature is! Hit the Free Record button and start playing. Logic Pro 10.7.5 will follow the tempo of your performance by auto-creating a Tempo Map or with options to smooth out the performance to the nearest single tempo all the while in both cases retaining the "feel" of your performance. It all happens seamlessly within the workflow without any unnecessary hindrances to your creative flow.
Smart Tempo - Speaking of tempo, Smart Tempo just got a whole lot smarter! With a new machine learning based analysis just toss in a few "Hints" in the Smart Tempo editor and the M-L system will analyze your file and do its Smart Tempo magic.
Stompboxes - You know all those stompboxes in the Pedalboard plugin? Now all 35 are available (in their many unique flavors) as individuals plugins in the Channel Strip. What fun to easily apply these FX to a variety of audio without having to load up the whole Pedalboard.
Personalized Spatial Audio - Logic can use Personalized Spatial Audio settings created with iOS16, customizing the Dolby Atmos experience to your physiology. This takes your spatial audio immersion to the next level. This is a feature that is integrated into your AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, and is "personalized" using your iPhone's cameras to scan the shape of your head (and ears) to customize and enhance your Dolby Atmos experience. This "scan" can then be selected and applied in Logic Pro's Spatial Audio options.
Ableton Link - Logic Pro 10.7.5 now supports the Ableton Link standard. This enables Logic users to easily synchronize supported software and hardware. Just put the sync options in your Tool Bar select Ableton Sync and now you're locked into the tempo and beats of any other supported (and linked) hardware and software on the same Wi-Fi network. Combine this with Live Loops (perhaps) and you'll be jamming in sync with all your Ableton buddies and tabletop beatboxes with ease.
New hard-hitting "Knock" presets for the Stereo output. Hip-Hop producers (and I'm told FL Studio users) like to listen and mix their music using similar settings. Now, you can add that same punch to your mix using the 3 Knock settings in the output channel strip.
