From Our Research Team:
Logic Pro 7.2: Unleash the Ultimate Mac Studio!Logic Pro 7.2 features new recording power, state-of-the-art loop composition tools as well as optimizations for the PowerPC G5 processor and Mac OS X, forming a highly productive system that will change the way you compose, record, edit and mix music in any studio environment. The latest version provides near unlimited processing resources through the simple addition of Macintosh computers.
Apple Logic Pro 7.2 at a Glance:
Powerful new features
Logic Pro 7.2 gives you the ability to take full advantage of the next generation of Mac computers. You'll also enjoy integrated support for the Apogee Ensemble FireWire interface, compatibility with Pro Tools HD 7 DAE, and project compatibility with Garageband 3, as well as a complement of feature enhancements and improvements.
Apple Logic Pro 7.2 New Features:
Tap Into Greater Power
The distributed audio processing feature in Logic Pro 7.2 offers a plug-and-play solution that provides the ability to tap networked computers for more DSP processing power. Simply add one or more Macintosh systems via Ethernet or FireWire to your Logic Pro 7.2 system. The result is an audio and music production system with processing power that was previously unimaginable - up to 128 stereo streams.
A distributed audio network requires at least two Apple computers running Mac OS X version 10.3 or later, with one acting as a master system (1GHz G4 or faster recommended) and additional computers serving as "nodes" (G5 recommended). Logic node software uses each G5 computer as an additional processor for your Logic Pro 7.2 system. You may install Logic Node on an unlimited number of Macs. Gigabit Ethernet provides the best performance. If you use more than one node, the switch that manages them must be Gigabit to avoid data transfer bottlenecks.
Logic Pro 7.2's innovative software instruments solidify the program's outstanding sound generation capabilities - in the studio and on stage. These new options expand the already comprehensive array of instruments available, broadening the sonic potential of your Macintosh. Simulate any sound with breathtakingly natural timbre in Sculpture, a component modeling synthesizer. Create hypnotic rhythms using Ultrabeat, a beatbox with 25 voices and virtually unlimited parameter adjustment. Low-latency MIDI processing provides control over external sound devices, software instruments and effects.
Apple Loops browsing and editing in Logic Pro 7.2 enable you to time stretch and pitch shift audio files in real time. Apple Loops let you work more efficiently and provide better workflow than conventional file formats. When you insert Apple Loops in software instrument format onto a software instrument track, Logic Pro 7.2 imports them as MIDI sequences with the originating instrument and effect settings intact. This allows you to change pitch, instrumentation or effects - something you could only dream of with standard audio loops technology. Logic also uses this functionality when you import GarageBand compositions, preserving every detail as you migrate the sessions for editing and producing in a truly professional environment.
Logic Pro 7.2 turns the Macintosh into a digital audio workstation that meets the highest demands for audio quality. It supports audio at 16- and 24-bit resolution and sample rates of up to 192kHz for both audio recording and playback of internal software instruments. Logic Pro 7.2 features nine new effect plug-ins added in version 7.0, including Guitar Amp Pro, for amp modeling. 32-bit floating-point mathematics provides enormous headroom for internal processing, making it nearly impossible to overload the signal - even during mixdown to 16-bit audio for CD release. In other words, Logic Pro 7.2 delivers excellence.
Fine-tune Audio Samples
Logic Pro 7.2 incorporates a powerful sample editor, allowing precise editing of your audio data. Beyond simple operations such as cut, copy, and paste, an extensive suite of DSP tools is also available.These tools include time stretching, pitch shifting and formant correction. Within the sample editor, you can quantize your audio recordings, translate pitched monophonic audio recordings into notation or extract the rhythm of an audio drum loop for use as a quantization template on MIDI performances. Premiere and Audiosuite format plug-in compatibility provides additional processing possibilities.
Professional Mixing Capacity
The virtual mixer in Logic Pro 7.2 controls up to 255 audio tracks, 128 audio instrument tracks and a nearly unlimited number of MIDI tracks. Each audio and audio instrument track can display and use up to 15 insert plug-ins and 8 effect bus sends. Logic Pro offers dozens of effect plug-ins and supports additional Audio Unit (AU) format plug-ins.
World-class MIDI Sequencing
Logic Pro 7.2's MIDI processing provides control over external sound devices as well as software instruments and effects, such as internal instruments and plug-ins or Audio Unit plug-ins. Thanks to the native MIDI functions in Mac OS X Core Audio, you can also record MIDI keyboard performances in Logic Pro 7.2. The Mac OS X Audio MIDI Setup utility controls most MIDI tasks, such as adding new devices, routing and so on. All MIDI information automatically transfers to Logic Pro 7.2, providing you with immediate access to your MIDI devices. Additionally, the deep integration of OS-native MIDI with Logic Pro 7 provides reliable MIDI data transmission at minimal latencies, enhancing the playability of software instruments and accelerating workflow.
Automate Every Parameter
The parameters of Logic Pro 7.2's software instruments and effects, as well as those of the mixing desk, integrate into the comprehensive automation system, thereby allowing full, total-recall mixes. The mixer supports a range of hardware controllers, from simple home studio models to high-end professional control surfaces that are deeply integrated into the Logic system. Generic control surfaces can be easily customized in a convenient MIDI Learn dialog.
Logic Pro 7.2's Score editor perfectly transforms MIDI performances into notation - in real time - as you're playing. Elaborate layout functions and professional notation printout functions allow you to quickly deliver anything from a lead sheet to a complete orchestral score. Logic Pro 7.2 supports automatic transposition of different instruments, as well as guitar tablature, drum notation and rapid entry of song lyrics or performance notes.

Logic Pro 7
by Sam from NY USAI started out as a Pro Tools user. I then went and bought Logic Pro 7. If you buy Pro Tools LE you wasted your money. The sound can't compare to Logic Pro 7.

Music Background: Metropolitan Opera trained vocals. Serious Piano skills. Sensitive ears.
Now with Apogee Symphony I ... read more [+]must truly say if you buy a Pro Tools HD system then you wasted even more money than if you went with the LE system.
Just think of buying Pro Tools HD. All that Hardware at a very high price tag. Then you have to go out and buy Apogee or a UA2192 or a Prism converter to make the Pro Tools HD system sound the way you want it to sound.
Now with Apogee and Intel Macs you can forget about all that Pro Tools rip off. Pro Tools is inferior both in the software and hardware department. The inside scoop is that those Pro Tools DSP cards cost the company very little money to produce. I truly believe it is the end for Pro Tools in the light of the superior products being produced for Native systems.
Go Logic or Nuendo. Go symphony or UA 2192. Then take yourself out to dinner and pat yourself on the back for being such a great descision maker. close [-]
One Each Mind...Totally Blown!!!
by Vito from USAYou know how they say, "If it sounds too good be true, it probably isn't true", right? In my experience, that's usually the way things turn out. Logic Pro 7 just gobbles up that old maxim, chews it up... read more [+], and spits it out. It simply has no equal...not even close.

If I were reading that right now and I didn't already know what Logic Pro can do, I'd probably be saying, "Yeah, right. This guy spent a bunch of bux on this thing, so he'd BETTER like it." Nope. Wrong. This is the real deal, folks. It doesn't get any better than Logic Pro 7.
You can read the specs and features list for yourself. What do I like? Well the number of plugins is staggering. And they're all useful. All the different reverbs, compressors, limiters, the pitch correction, phenomenal EQ, spectrum analyzer, tuner, mastering plugins, and the ability to automate every parameter of every plugin...it's just incredible.
And the virtual instruments...OHMYGAWD! Just consider the power and flexibility of even one of them...say the Ultrabeat, or the EXS24. The mind reels. Electric pianos, organs, synths for days...plus all the GarageBand instruments. Sheesh...
And Distributed Audio Processing. Need more power to run more tracks or use more plugins? No problem...connect another Mac via ethernet and offload processor tasks to another computer...and another, and another...instant non-obsolescence!
This is powerful stuff. It is simply the most sophisticated, elegant, powerful, flexible, full-featured, all-in-one music production software package available anywhere, on any platform, for any price. You owe it to yourself to try it, if for no other reason than if you don't and then later you actually get your hands on it, you'll be kicking yourself..."Why didn't I at least TRY it before I shelled out the bux for (name anything else here)??!!"
But I'm warning you. If you spend some time with Logic Pro, you will have to own it. close [-]
The water is great, but reallly deep!

Once you take some time to get to know the program, you can completely (and I mean COMPLETELY) customize the interface to your style of working.

If you want to do professional level MIDI sequencing and multi-track recording, you will not regret going with Logic Pro. If you are a PC user, keep your PC to run Giga Studio and get a Mac to run Logic Pro. This program is more than worth buying the computer for. close [-]
Logic Based Commercial Studio

The only way I could go with pro tools was and hd ... read more [+]system, but I already had multiple macs. So I utilized the Logic node feature to get some extra processing, picked up a couple UAD-1 CARDS and a tc powercore, and beefed up my interfaces using 3 motu HD192's. I can say that I am now totally 100% satisfied with logic and I am actually selling my pro tools rig. With all this power the limited 002 just doesn't do it for me any more close [-]

I have been using Logic for four years now and it has catipulted my music production capabilites to the absolute forefront of music production technology. Since I purchased Logic Pro, I have produced countless professional, studio-quality tracks for my band and for my solo material. It is the best DAW for high-end music production. Logic comes with 34 software instruments and 70 effects plug-ins. You will not find another piece of software as professional, robust, or creative as Logic Pro.
