Recent update broke midi playing in the piano roll view. Clicking a note no longer plays a sound. Highlighting multiple notes with a drag to select does still play, so this definitely looks to be a bug, not some new enable-able feature. Playing virtual instruments using midi works just fine, but after recording, editing in piano roll doesn't play. Also, on playback, the 1st note of some (not all) midi region doesn't play. This all used to work fine last month.
I love Logic so much for scoring to film. However, I noticed that when cutting audio files, lately the program randomly resizes and overlaps them in very strange ways. I know this is a widely reported bug, but I just wanted to keep "bugging" Apple to do something about it, as some of us have very tight deadlines and this is a very time-consuming problem. Can't wait for an update!
I'm a home producer and singer! I started out using GarageBand, but it only got me so far. After much contemplation, I decided to break down and. spend the $200 on Logic. Let me tell you, this DAW is worth every cent of your money! You have so much more control over all of your effect plugins, midi instruments, and much more! Mixing is brought to another level with the many different presets and options. However, I do have 1 wish. I have other friends who also use Logic to produce their songs. Although we both use Logic, there's no seeming way that both me and my friends can work simultaneously on the same project without having to download any third-party apps or plugins. That one complaint aside, this program is by far the best out of anything I've ever tried and I'll continue to use it. 100% recommend this to you if you're still considering whether or not to buy it!
But when it doesn't heaven help you. It won't be fun.
Constant issues with sound library amomg other issues. not reliable enough for your lifes work.
Logic Pro is a great, easy-to-use music production software. It offers lots of instruments and sounds, and supports many music styles. Powerful editing and mixing tools, plus compatibility with other Apple products, make Logic Pro a great choice for music makers.
Downloaded Logic back in 2015 and its been my only DAW I've ever used. the music i've created in logic has been streamed over 8 million times and I can afford to support myself because of a $200 investment I made 8-9 years ago. literally life-changing
The only saving grace is that Auto-Save is literally a lifesaver
I updated my OS and Logic Pro X to the most up to date versions on a 2017 MacBook, and whaddya know, the whole DAW has a lag to every click and drag of my mouse now. I lost the ability ot mix in Logic literally overnight, and I am halfway through a big project. Thanks a lot––How about designing software that works for more than a year at a time. This is pathetic in 2023. I'll be switching to Ableton and I hope to never look back.
After the last update, using Cmd 5 to bring up the Score Editor when a Cycle Range is selected and Cycle is turned on causes Scroll in Play to display the score ~20 bars AFTER the playhead. Repositioning the play head and starting playback again makes no difference - every time you do that, it jumps ~20 bars AFTER the playhead - and then continues to scroll from that viewpoint, which defeats the purpose of having Scroll in Play enabled in the first place. Didn't anyone test this?
