All the power you need in production. All the creativity you want in music.
Plug-ins and Sounds.
A massive collection of effects and instruments.
Instant access to a deep selection of plug-ins and sounds to fuel your creativity.
Keep your tracks in time.
Smart Tempo automatically manages tempo across all the content in your project. Record freely without a click track. Easily combine and edit audio — from vinyl samples to live instruments — regardless of original tempo, variations in speed, or even source.
Take hold of your music.
Logic Remote wirelessly connects your iOS device to your Mac and adds the power of Multi-Touch control to your performances and mixes. Play any software instrument in Logic Pro X from your iPad Pro, iPad, or iPhone and easily shape your sound as you go. Run your session from wherever you’re most comfortable — whether that’s next to your computer or across the room.
Don’t just add a drum track. Add a bandmate.
Using Drummer is like hiring a session drummer or collaborating with a highly skilled beat programmer. Create organic-sounding acoustic drum tracks or electronic beats with the intelligent technology of Drummer. Choose from dozens of drummers who each play in a different musical genre, and direct their performances using simple controls.
Compositions and performances.
A complete studio for your Mac.
Logic Pro X turns your Mac into a professional recording studio able to handle even the most demanding projects. Capture your compositions and performances — from tracking a live band to a solo software-instrument session — and flow them into your songs.
As your song develops, Logic Pro X helps organize all your ideas and select the best ones. Group related tracks, audition alternate versions, and consolidate multiple tracks. Lightning-fast click-and-drag comping helps you build your best performance from multiple takes.
Even more pro features in the mix.
Logic Pro X is packed with incredible tools and resources to enhance your creativity and workflow as you sharpen your craft — even if you’re a seasoned pro.
