Nice feature is that LPX will automatically try to assign a proper icon from sounds dragged from the loop browser, also from 3rd party content, probably by analyzing the naming of a file.

- Midi regions can now freely be shortened by dragging from the left handle. Before this was limited.
- Finally - moving multiple tracks at once
- Specific key commands for new audio track/software/etc. big workflow improver, bypassing the "New track" dialogue.
- When importing tracks with sends assigned, LPX will ask you to use and select an existing aux or create new ones.
- More to come :)

Legacy plug-ins, instruments, and channel strip settings can be accessed by Option-clicking each respective button.

Another thing that keeps being asked. The default shortcut for the tool menu is "T."

New Retro Synth, Clav, Organ, and Electric Piano instruments.

Bass Amp Designer and new stompboxes in Pedalboard.

Round robin sample support in EXS24.

Alternatives (integrated versioning).

Project packages - everything contained in one package instead of a folder (still supports folder structure if desired).

Autosave in the background.

I also suggest the major features that were removed be documented directly. Especially the fact that the 32-bit bridge is now gone.

Here's my tip for the day..

With Drummer, you can have separate outs.

1. Initiate drummer track
2. Change the Drum Designer plugin to EXS24 multi out (after you've picked a kit)
3. Click the plus button on the channel strip as many times as you need to separate things... Logic will create labelled, setup Aux's Kick, Snare, Toms, Hi-Hat/Perc.

I don't see that. First of all I reloaded a LP 9.x project. "esc" still shows me the tools menu which is still a problem because I can't go full screen. "T" pops up the tempo list.

So perhaps controlled by a pref setting ?

Sounds like you're using the old key commands preset. Logic Pro X should have asked if you wanted to continue using the old ones or change to the new ones. In the new ones the "T" toggles the tool menu.

Here's a real time saver regarding flex on and off for tracks: just swipe up and down! ;-)

Nobody seems to have mentioned it, but it has support for exporting FCPX XML and Compound clips.

Not that export is as necessary as the other way around - I haven't tested it yet but it imports FCPX XML.

I hope it does it clip-based, because if thats the case this is some very nice integration right there.
