I’ve been holding off upgrading to Logic X for two main reasons: I’ve been totally broke, and I’ve read that it was very buggy, as is traditional for a new Logic release. Well Apple just released the largest ‘minor’ update I’ve ever seen for Logic. The changelog is gargantuan! And it looks like most of the niggles people were experiencing have been addressed.
Using Apple’s professional products can be an excercise in frustration. Their heritage of good design and focus on ease of use makes their professional offerings very approachable and often more elegant than their competitors. But their policy of total radio silence, though effective when surprising the world with their latest consumer gadget, is downright unsettling for professionals, who need to know that the software they rely on for their living is being taken seriously.
This update gives me heart that Apple hasn’t forgotten Logic, or consigned it to prosumer Macbook-bait. Time to upgrade!
