Wow, Apple must be listening to their customers for once - that's an update and a half.

When does Aperture get some major upgrade love? It seems Pro Logic & FCPx get occasional features adds but Aperture at best gets compatibility upgrades only.

When? You don't seriously expect an answer to that question, do you?

Sometime soon, would be my guess. Logic Pro X was an awesome upgrade, and arrived out of the blue. I imagine that Aperture X will get a similar treatment in Apple's own good time.

Still, it's nice to see you aren't griping on about tardy Camera Raw updates any more. How is the new camera going, by the way? Isn't it nice that five more cameras were catered for yesterday?

Wow, there really are no Logic/GarageBand users posting on MacRumors. Either that or they're too busy doing their own thing to bother.


A lot of the audio guys post of specialized forums like kvr, gearslutz, or logicprohelp for these things.

I'm happy about the update though, pretty significant amount of stuff. I'll probably pull the trigger on Logic X now.

Question of the year. And last year too. I just hope we're not asking this same question next December, ugh.

No. I was being rhetorical. I though it was obvious given the context of my post and thread topic.

Look, I suspect Apple wants to figure out their complete foto strategie first. /QUOTE]

That really makes no sense in the context of how long it's been since a major Apeture overhaul. If Apple hasn't figured it out by now then it won't. The major upgrades on iDevices is the camera. Apple understands the importance of photo. Pro (RAW) editing is either part of it or not.

I've been sticking with Logic 9 for as long as I can because of the drop in 32bit plugin support (I know, lame, but loads of the plugins I use are indie ones that'll never be updated). However, this might just push me into making the jump, looks like a pretty solid update now.

Awesome update! Hopefully Logic 10.1 will include redesigns of all the plugins. That would be really good, especially for the retina MacBook Pro. :D
