NEW IN LOGIC STUDIO 9:
For guitar players, live performers, and all musicians who record, edit, and mix their own music, the new Logic Studio is a huge leap forward. Advanced production tools take the work out of editing timing and tempo. An expansive collection of vintage and modern amps, cabinets, and stompboxes make you sound like you're playing through legendary gear. And new live performance plug-ins let you record loops and trigger backing tracks when you're on stage.
Flex Time. Flex Time is a new collection of features that lets you manipulate timing and tempo quickly and creatively. Experience editing without all the cutting.
- Flex Tool
The new Flex Tool lets you push audio around with your mouse by clicking and dragging anywhere on the waveform -- forget all that tedious splicing and editing.
- Audio Quantize
It's not just for MIDI anymore. Now you can conform the timing of an audio region to a musical grid, or to the feel of another track, instantly correcting a performance.
- Editing drum tracks
Use Slicing Mode with drums and you won't compromise a single attack. Edit across a set of grouped multitrack drums and everything stays locked perfectly in phase.
Slow down or speed up an entire multitrack project effortlessly, whether you want to try out different tempos or take it slow while you play a difficult solo.
- Flex Modes
Whether you're editing a solo vocal, a rhythm guitar, or multitrack drums, Flex Time has a mode designed to give you the best results.
- Speed Fades
Get creative by adding turntable-style starts or stops with the kind of precision that would impress even the best DJs.
- Tempo Import/Export
Now the audio you import can automatically conform to the tempo of a project you're working on. (And the other way around.)
Production Tools. New production tools allow musicians to tackle any part of the recording, editing, and mixing process they want -- and get it done in a fraction of the time.
- Selective Track Import
To transfer setups and track content between projects, simply select the individual components you want to import on a track-by-track basis.
- Expanded take folder editing
Logic Pro 9 gives you access to your important edit tools and Flex Time features -- right longside Quick Swipe comping.
- Drum Replacer
Now you can replace or double less-than-perfect drum tracks with triggered samples in just a few clicks. No more headaches. No more hassles.
- Convert to Sampler Track
In one step, turn an audio region into a sampler instrument with a MIDI track to trigger it. Then you can modify and resequence the part.
The new Bounce-in-Place feature makes effects rendering much quicker and easier, whether you're bouncing a single region or an entire track.
- Notation and chord grids
Create guitar tablature or detailed scores using a library of more than 4000 chord grids (or your own custom grids) and new ornaments for hammer-ons, bends, and more.
- Jam Pack: Voices
Build your song with a lead vocal, rappers, backup singers, an entire choir, or even software instruments based on the human voice and body.
- Warped Effects for Space Designer
More than 450 warped impulse responses radically transform what Space Designer can do, allowing you to give ordinary sounds a bizarre, other-worldly quality.
Guitar Gear. Now you can mix and match amp heads, EQs, reverbs, speaker cabinets and mics--then creatively route your signal through an impressive new collection of stompboxes.
- Amp Designer
Build your dream rig by mixing and matching 25 amps, 25 speaker cabinets, and 3 mics you can position freely around the speaker cone.
Fire up 30 stompboxes that deliver lush effects like Overdrive, Distortion, Fuzz, Delay, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Tremolo, Treble Boost, and Wah.
- Classic tones
Hundreds of presets give you Amp Designer and Pedalboard sounds that are ready to go. Start exploring with classic tones, genres, or characteristics like clean, crunch, and distorted.
- Apogee GiO support
This new USB audio interface and control device lets you operate Pedalboard hands-free and works with Logic Pro 9 and MainStage 2 right out of the box.
Live Performance. MainStage 2 lets you hit the stage with all the same instruments and effects you used on your recording, and adds a backing track player and live loop recorder.
With this new plug-in, your Mac becomes a flexible, reliable backing track player. Fill out your sound with a simple stereo track or a set of separate, mixable stems.
This live loop recorder lets you create spontaneous arrangements onstage. And it's instantly familiar, since it's modeled after the tape-based devices you know and love.
- Multimapping of controls
Set things up so that one knob controls multiple plug-in parameters. Then you can dramatically change your sound with the turn of a single knob.
- Grouped controls
Drag and drop entire sets of knobs, dials, faders, meters, and more into your layout. From there, you can easily customize the type, size, and color.
- Expanded ReWire Support
Run MainStage with applications like Reason and Live. Trigger and sequence your instruments from MainStage, and route your signals straight into the mixer.
- Record performances
Route your audio to a designated stereo output and choose from all the standard file formats, including Apple CAF for concerts of almost any length.
