Those pro apps specialists are marketing guys. That has nothing to do with app development.

+1 @ Asher..

IIRC this story originated over a year ago and related to the fact that with the discontinuation of the Logic Studio Boxed Set, the Marketing and Sales team for that product was laid off/made redundant once Logic became an App Store Product only....

Is this just a bad rumor?

Wed Nov 28, 2012 10:01 am

This is a worrisome article - but I wonder about the validity of it. Some of the comments question it... Anybody want to add some thoughts?

I just can not resist starting (another) school yard brawl. . . :D

This is how I look at all of this. . .

My current version of Logic Pro and my Mac Pro work really well together. It's stable; it meets all of my current (and near future) compositional, sequencing and recording needs. If any part of this rumor is true, and I've read other posts to suggest otherwise, and there is no further development for Logic Pro, then I guess I'll just have to learn to live with what I have. What I have is wonderfully stable and should last me a long time.


:twisted:

Edited to add: Awwwww. . . I see that the powers that be merged the two threads together. Oh Well.

Apple Pro Audio Applications Team "Decimated" ...


Talk about a whole lot of hoopla about nothing... :roll:

They're using strong wording to create a sensational title. What happened was that during the transition from Apple distributing Logic through conventional retail channels to distributing it exclusively in the Mac App Store, Apple laid off the Logic sales teams. Those teams' role was to place the Logic boxes in stores (Guitar Center, Sam Ash etc..), check the location and presentation of the product in the store, create in-store promotional events, etc... all things that Apple will no longer need in the future since the move to the Mac App Store.

The Pro Audio development and management teams are still alive and kicking.

That's exactly what I thought when I saw that URL. I mean come on, someone writes just about any unchecked facts on the internet and the "article" gets picked up by Macworld? :shock:

Thank you, Dave and the rest, for setting the record straight.

I've been working on some compositional projects these past few weeks (which is a rare opportunity for me!!!), and I have to say that I just LOVE Logic Pro. I haven't worried about crashes; so far, there's been no problems with using too many VIs (these pieces are orchestral compositions for a total of about 50 "instruments"). It's been sheer joy working with Logic Pro, which has been my overall experience for the past few years. Although I'm not a "Pro", I'm a committed user of this program. I appreciate stability. With my current computer set-up using the current version of Logic Pro, I have that stability. It is reassuring to read that there may be future versions of Logic Pro. Although I will proceed with any future upgrades with prudent caution, I will upgrade if/when it's stable. :)

Regarding journalism. . .

It's my opinion that good journalism has been dead for a many years, now. This is especially true for "news" read on the internet. Checking FACTS, ensuring that information "printed" in articles are verifiably true, seems to have become a lost responsibility in modern-day "journalism". The article shared in this thread is one fine example of this. BLECH!

Dead? Looking forward to the birth of good journalism! :-)

His answer was "It sounds like a good idea."

People unfortunately want crappy news (aka infotainment) so the demand for good journalism has become quite niche; in fact, 99.9 % of journalists are not or hardly critical or independent at all. They almost all are as laden with transparent convictions and subconcious conditioning(s) as the rest of humanity. Simple example: the above choice of words, where capitalism is already an unquestioned fact of life ("the demand...").
There's no good or bad journalism, really. There's good and bad storytelling.

When will Logic X come out? is not a story. It is a thought experiment.

Actually, that Gandhi "quote" is widely disputed, as there is no record anywhere of his having said it, save for one guy writing a book of quotes who swears he overheard it in a crowd on a train platform. it's a little flip for the Mahatma. Gandhi also never said "Be the change you wish to see in the world." As a rule, you can assume that the most famous quotes are all misattributed. :)

Doh!

[slaps self in forehead]

It just dawned on me...

PEOPLE!! Do you not see the inherent sarcasm in the sensationalistic headline of "Apple Pro Audio Team 'Decimated'"???

Decimated means "to cut into 10 pieces".

10, get it?

Logic 10

Logic.... X

I wonder what would happen if people invest all the time they're writing about new Logic rumours to ear training, or something similar. Something bad i guess.
