Apple to Update Logic Pro With Spatial Audio Tools Later This Year

In an Apple Newsroom editorial today, Apple Music radio host Zane Lowe revealed that Apple is building tools directly into Logic Pro that will allow musicians to create and mix their songs in Spatial Audio for Apple Music.

"Apple is building immersive music-authoring tools directly into Logic Pro later this year," wrote Lowe. "So any musician will be able to create and mix their songs in Spatial Audio for Apple Music — whether they're in the studio, at home, or wherever."

Spatial Audio, based on Dolby Atmos, is an immersive surround sound audio format that enables musicians to mix music so it sounds like the instruments are all around you in space. Thousands of Apple Music songs are available in Spatial Audio starting today, such as Lady Gaga's "Rain on Me" and Kanye West's "Black Skinhead."

Logic Pro is Apple's professional music production software for the Mac, and is priced at $199.99 on the Mac App Store, with a free 90-day trial available.

Please work on bugs, stop releasing features that are not critical:

-automation export/ render still with the same bug, as 5 years ago, it doesn't export the right curves values
-logic native plugins will not reset automation values in tracks ....since 2018 ..no change
-Pitch correction is not reversible , once the source material is pitched, there is no going back. Basically you have to work with duplicates which might be fine for simple sessions, but not on larger sessions..

I don't need new features , I need working features.

No one is using it. Everybody is using Premiere, Davinci or Avid... FCPX is nowhere to be found and that is because Apple killed FCP7 like that.
Please don’t comment if you don’t know what you’re talking about. Thanks!

I'm all up for criticism but leave the Logic team alone. They have been incredible and have helped our careers for peanuts by giving us the best most fully featured DAW in the world. Apple appreciate that Logic is a big seller and bringer into their ecosystem so they have continues to pour money into the team which still features many originals from Emagic. Credit where credit is due.

Why doesn’t the Logic team focus on fixing bugs that have been lingering for years? Instead they just keep on throwing more things in to be unstable. ?‍♂️

proof : among so many), the impressive " pro users stories section" of a site like fcp.co You stand corrected.
