Apple Logic Pro X update displays power of new Mac Pro
New Delhi: Apple released an updated version of Logic Pro X, its professional music production software on Friday. The software is now souped up to show off the capabilities of the new Mac Pro, with improved responsiveness and a huge increase in the number of tracks it can support in a project file.
Logic Pro X 10.4.5 will now support up to 56 processing threads, allowing pro music producers and film composers to work through demanding music projects with ease, Apple said.
Unveiled at WWDC 2019, the Mac Pro 2019 boasts a 28-core Intel Xeon processor, and up to 1.5TB of 6-channel ECC system memory – and with the new Logic Pro X update, the digital audio workstation (DAW) can take advantage of those numerous cores.
So the obvious question- Why would anyone need 1,000 audio or instrument tracks? There are plenty of reasons. The average bedroom producer will likely never reach this threshold, but those who deal in dense, expansive composition like TV audio, adaptive video game music, and orchestral scoring very well could.
With the new Mac Pro, Logic can now run up to five times the number of real-time plug-ins compared to the previous generation Mac Pro.
Apple said that Logic Pro X 10.4.5 has been made available starting Friday as a free update for all existing users, and is available on the Mac App Store for Rs 15,500 for new customers.
