Its official, the dongle is out and the serial number is in! After truckloads of rumour, speculation and all out guessing the latest incarnation of Apple's Logic has finally landed (apple.com
). Version 8 comes as part of the new Logic Studio bundle which includes Soundtrack Pro 2, Waveburner and the all new Mainstage application for using Logic's soft synths in a live setting.
The interface has been redesigned for faster, easier workflow. There's time-stretching by dragging audio clips, and a handful of new plug-in effects, including a vastly overhauled compressor. Best of all, the massive price drop; a new copy will set you back just £319, and Logic Express is now £129.
