Apple Really Lets You Face The Music With Logic Pro

Apple is playing to musicians today by announcing a new version of their premium music-making app, Logic Pro.

Logic Pro for iPad 2 and Logic Pro for Mac 11 now harness artificial intelligence to bring even more creativity and productivity to songwriting, beat-making, producing, and mixing.

The updated Logic Pro

Logic Pro’s new AI-powered studio assistant works with the human user to keep things tight and on tempo. The new suite of tools includes a fuller rhythm section of Session Players with Bass Player and Keyboard Player joining Drummer — who also has a new bag of techniques!

According to Apple, Bass Player was trained in collaboration with today’s best bass players using advanced AI and sampling technologies. Composers can choose from eight Bass Players and guide their performance with controls for complexity and intensity. Remember techniques like slides, mutes, dead notes, and pick up hits. Bass Player can jam along with chord progressions, or users can choose from 100 Bass Player loops to draw new inspiration. With Chord Track, users can define and edit the chord progressions to a song, and the virtual Bass Player will follow along perfectly. Plus, with the new Studio Bass plug-in, composers gain access to six meticulously recorded bass instruments- from acoustic to electric- all inspired by the sounds of today’s most famous bass tones.

With Keyboard Player, composers can choose from four styles designed by top studio musicians. Keyboard Player can play everything from simple block chords to chord voicing with extended harmony — with nearly endless variations. Like the Bass Player, the Chord Track adds and edits the song’s chord progression, so the Keyboard Player follows along. Using the Studio Piano plug-in, composers can select additional sound-shaping options, with the ability to adjust three mic positions, pedal noise, key noise, release samples, and sympathetic resonance.

New Stem Splitter allows composers to extract and work with individual parts of a single audio recording, granting a new level of oversight and control. Recover moments of inspiration from any audio file across your devices and separate nearly any mixed audio recording into four distinct parts: Drums, Bass, Vocals, and other instruments.

Finally, ChromaGlow listens to what you have and tunes to warm your tracks instantly. Dial in the perfect tone with five different saturation styles to add ultrarealistic warmth, presence, and punch to any track.

Logic Pro is rolling out a free update to those who own it on Mac or iPad on May 13th. Composers not yet using Logic Pro can pick up the new version on May 13th for $249.99 on Mac 11 with macOS Ventura 13.5 or later. It is also for $6.99 per month or $69 per year, with a one-month free trial on iPad 2 with iPadOS 17.4 or later.
