All user reviews for the Apple Logic Pro X
Charles Bunk's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Rather very satisfied"
What a great idea this "Quick Help"! I admit that even though I'm used to LP I continue to use it from time to time for new features, but also to make some revisions.
I think I would have been happy to start with this function LP8 !
The software works perfectly on my Mac Mini I7 2.3 GHz 16GB Ram. I have an external sound card StudioKonnekt 48 D at TC Electronic. I set the buffer size to 64: D = 7.8 ms latency. When I open my projects, all processors run (so good distribution on the hearts) and I REALLY margin ...
Everything is very stable. No crash so far.
I use it for a few days and I just LP8. I was reluctant to go on live (I've never been able to understand) and then that Logic Pro X came out of nowhere ... I waited a few people pay the piper but frankly I think that there has not been a lot of problems with this version and the first SHIFT was developed quickly so good reactivity of Apple.
What I like most is that everything that I missed is present in this version. Everyone knows the new features but for my part I remember most:
- MIDI effects: good bah say that huh except that it is the BOMB. The arpeggio is a treat, the chord trigger I even speak ... The rest I'm still testing. It awakens a little creativity and train train in which I had a little bogged down with LP8!
- Smarts control: no comment! I always galley with LP8 ... But I can not be gifted. But now there is this simple, effective. What more ...
- Flex Pitch: really happy to have a small version of Melodyne in this software. No desire to slam the tunes in a VST like this ... But such since I have I enjoy popping accapela with sometimes surprising results. Not tested on brass but I'm not that.
- The retro synth: nice, but not too teased.
The other feature (Drummer) are a plus but are not what made me pass on LPX ...
I especially like the cosmetic efforts that have been made to the modules Vintage Electric Piano and Vintage B3 Organ. It is very readable, again totally in synergy with smarts control.
I'm also quite a fan of the new finally sober look. The colors stand out better on the mixer is also successful. Icing on the cake: a small North Lead icon for my external midi track 2X hihi!
You get used very quickly to this new version. Everything becomes more fluid, I think. I redid a ride on LP8 just now and it's scary ... very dated.
Of course I do not have the problem of the bridge because I only use the modules Logic (apart but Fxpansion Geist is day ).
Anyway. I got what I expected for 179 euros. Knowing that 6 years before I had paid 380 euros LP8 super promo.
Of course I had to change mac ... But anyway it was expected.
That's it. I am conquered and I do not regret that choice.

Makos's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Logic X ... Slap!"
The installation is carried out smoothly. The previous notice summarizes things well.
On MacMini COREI7 is simply velvet! Only "obstacle" no ability to load 32 bit plugs.
The interface is simply excellent. The level of usability is above the rest. Instruments and plugs available (noon, pedals and amps guitars, varied and diverse effects) are very good.
I opened GarageBand and Logic 9 projects carefree, so compatibility on top.
Perfection is not of this world I note 9
What about ... For 180 euros you have the right to an excellent Studio One in its basic version, a very watered Cubase (which is still the road) ... that's all.
There, Apple offers a software high-level, professional, not afraid of the word. The latter has years of experience in the "Logic" team. It comes in its new form with a level of performance and high-end ergonomic ... the same price.
Clearly, Apple makes the eye professionals and amateurs in the music world.
Buy a Mac and you'll have a few extra euros for a real station audio / midi. One of the best! Mac, Apple literally deposited competition. It deserves 10

Ehma2Retour's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A big step forward."
We download the application from the Apple Store and on the application downloads the basic content.
I3 with a 12 GB of RAM software is very fluid and also relatively stable (only one crash in 5 days).
The interface is very similar to Garageband, but can be customized to look more like the versions 8 and 9.
A little regret, however, is the absence of AU / AUI bridge, being soft 64bit, it does not allow the use of 32-bit plugins.
Good in a week, was not around, but we can already see where a successful product. All that was missing in Logic is finally here. The "insert" midi (I'm not talking about audio effects "insert") and Timeflex. Therefore, I see no reason to stay on Cubase, which update worth the price of Logic at full price.
The interface is an example for the competition, it does not baffle beginners and regulars Garageband.
Too bad he did not allow the use of 32 bit plugins. But Apple is also known for the past tidal table.
The tools provided are good enough, and the effects, though I think the origin of EXS24 samples could be better. But next to it was some vintage keyboard and especially sculpture.
For the price of Cubase Element was an advanced application that rivals the big version of Cubase. Therefore, the value for money crushes the competition (except Reaper some say).
I'll come back here no doubt, if over time my opinion on this change.
