This is the video to watch Logic Pro X work in a professional studio, and using a new Mac Pro.



I wouldn't touch a MacBook Pro in a pro studio when I could invest in this set up. The producers reactions and comments say it all.

It’s a pity Logic Pro X sound is corrupted on the MBP 16” internal speakers and Apple don’t seem to be able to find a fix.

And yet there is James Blake with all his Grammys, Mercury Prize, etc.
because obviously contrary to the silly implication of this campaign, it matters only who is behind the computer, not what computer is used.
