Apple Moving Toward Release of Logic Pro X?
MacRumors recently reported that Apple may soon be releasing an “app” version of their music/audio authoring product Logic. Many people see this trend by Apple to be similar to the changes with their video editing product Final Cut Pro. While many new and part time editors applauded the new price point and ease of use – professional users cried foul! As Apple grows into a much larger and consumer centric company their product mix and focus is moving away from the smaller professional user base and to the larger consumer products world.
EAR has many professional users loyal to the Apple platform staying with their hardware and moving to alternate professional hardware. Adobe, Avid (Digidesign) and many other companies are moving quickly to offer “cross-grade” or trade up opportunities for existing Apple Logic and Final Cut Pro users.
More about the MacRumor article:
Japanese site Macotakara reports that Apple may be finishing up work on a new version of its Logic professional audio software, with the new version being named Logic Pro X. According to a rough English translation provided alongside the original Japanese-language report, a source familiar with the status of the project appears to report that the news comes from a source involved in a “customer interview” with Apple’s Logic team.
The report indicates that Apple will be discontinuing the Soundtrack Pro component of Logic Studio with the update, which would mirror the move taken with the release of Final Cut Pro X earlier this year. Soundtrack Pro 3 had been offered with both Final Cut Studio and Logic Studio, but is no longer included as part of the Final Cut Pro X application set.
