I'm loving this update so far. A lot of smaller inconspicuous changes that won't sell Logic Pro but that us-long-time-users will really appreciate: 

  • Individual Track Zoom can now be applied to a selection of multiple tracks.
  • There is now a Search Patch key command that opens the Patch area of the Sound Library and places the focus into the Search field.
  • When the Command key is assigned to the Marquee tool, clicking a region while pressing Command + Option + Shift adds the range of the region to an existing Marquee selection.
  • The number of Round Robins available in Autosampler has been increased from 8 to 32
  • There is a new key command called Remove Crossfades.
  • Smart Tempo detection has been improved

This is an interesting one, if it does what I think it does:

- Logic now instantly writes all automation necessary changes when loading new AU presets while playing while writing automation.

And a fix I was hoping for:

- The plug-in window browser in Logic now reliably remains in sync when browsing through Audio Unit plug-in presets using the plug-in's internal browser

They must have liked this feature so much they listed it twice 🙂 :

- The Compare button now works consistently with third-party Audio Unit plug-ins.
- The Compare function now works with Audio Unit plug-ins.

Some MIDI output stuff:

- Logic can now capture MIDI data from AUv3 plug-ins as regions

And I think I saw a post not long back about about this issue:

- Track names for Kontakt patches now display as expected.

Another good one:

- Resolves an issue where installing Sound Library additional content on a system where the Sound Library has been relocated could cause the sound library to stop working.

It was literally the second thing listed in the thread... 😄

Ha! That's how excited I am. Can;t even read.

Also Ableton link is huge. I still can't believe support for Rewire was dropped by Propellerheads but Ableton Link is so much better.

Hmmmm my Settings (formerly Preferences), still only has 24-bit rather than 32-bit

That's the recording preferences, which is different to what audio file formats Logic can import.

Logic can now import and playback 32-float files (for compatibility and avoiding what it previously did was extract the 24-bit data out of them and import just that).

Couldn't they make the gain adjustment available without selecting a tool, just like in other DAWs? Or does anyone know if it's possible to adjust the gain without the gain tool if I enable Marquee click zones? (just like the fade adjustment?)

If it helps, I’ve replaced some of the screenset key commands to load the Pointer Tool and Gain Tool. For example, “1” now loads the pointer tool, and “2” loads the Gain Tool.

I’m hoping for a Gain Tool click zone in the future. But until then I find it easy enough to swap the Screenset keys as I never use them.

I was initially a little excited to hear about midi record to region from plugin...  The naming of the feature could have been better.

This seems to basically insert midi plugins above the orange triangle into the midi signal path where live midi is coming from..prior to being recorded to the track.  So it lets you use midi plugins while recording your midi part recording the actual results of the midi plugins at that time as you play it in on your keyboard.  

Ok..that's fine.. But what it will not let you do is take an already recorded midi part and process through midi plugins, recording the result of that back to this track, or another track.

For recording the midi plugin results from pre-recorded midi tracks, looks like its still the good ol' IAC or MidiFXFreeze approach alive and well.

It is something though, I'll be curious to look under the hood and see what kind of midi timing information ends up on midi events recorded that way.
