Nice program but, why waist time with a remote for Logic and not to make Logic for IPad, that’s what we really need.
I totally agree! This where PC shines update the OS in PC you still can use 10 year old software what more can you ask for. I believe it’s a way to sell more newer version of Mac many may agree while time is tight right now most can’t rush out to apple store and by a new Mac every 3 years. If your Mac is nearly outdated in 3 to 5 years maybe I need to start thinking about a Microsoft surface pro.
There is no reason why you should put a barrier between your users actually using this app with a newer version of Logic Pro X when we have an older version of your iPad. You arbitrarily gate access to force people to purchase newer versions of your products which is just trashy of you. I spent $4000 on a new iMac but because I didn't spend an additional thousand dollars to get your new iPad I can't use Logic Remote anymore. Apple really has gone downhill since the days of Steve Jobs. I regret ever giving you my money.
I was stoked when I saw that Apple had developed the LogicRemote app to control LogicPro on Mac via an IPhone, or IPad. Naturally I immediately jumped at this opportunity while imagining myself reveling at the many awesome features described in the description on the App Store. During the download I daydreamed utilizing the sleek and convenient touch function, tapping out monster beats while lounging in bed, putting on a show for my peers, showing off my mastery over the music software while humbled by the amount of praise I received. I was certain this would be an invaluable addition in the aiding of making the music production an even more enjoyable process. Then the bubble popped and the download had finished. Now was time to harvest this dream of mine and become spoiled by the fruits of my systems labor. But, unfortunately that would be the last high I’d get to ride in regard to the LogicPro Remote, as my euphoria quickly was transformed to confusion, then soon thereafter, frustration. I tried several different troubleshooting techniques just to be absolutely sure my failed attempts to sync the freshly installed app on my IPhone to my brand new MacBook Air M1 wasn’t a result of infallible human error. With my hands in the air and a series of floating question marks above my head I had no choice but to resign from making the short lived dream a reality. :( I am hopeful Apple addresses this compatibility issue with the next software update so that everyone that has invested in their ecosystem of products can enjoy all the benifits of the products they release to the world. So if you happen to hear about this grievance Mr. Cook, would you be so kind to give the team in this department a memo from this music lover (wink, wink;) Heck, and I’ll even help out with the dev. if you’d care for some more insightful feedback from where the rubber meets the road. Just give me a holler and I’ll be there for you neighbor!( I Literally live within the area the Infinite Loop complex is located). Just throwing it out there so, don’t be shy now. Anywho, One’s still allowed to dream right? Life can get rather dull without. And that’s what I intend to continue doing. Who knows, maybe one day it’ll all be a reality and I can look back on this moment in time and remember when I was just a dreamer. For now, I’ll look forward to the future and put this frustration behind me. I must press on from this shortfall now. Now I have some music to make. Cheers!
Logic 10.5 on OS 10.14.6. Logic remote on iPad Pro 2018 12.9. I bought the iPad and everything was great. Very useful control surface for logic. This upgrade has unfortunately ruined that lovely environment. The biggest complaint for me being the mixer page. Some tracks correspond to their proper partner but others do not. Sends mysteriously become audio tracks. It’s pandemonium. I don’t know what your next move is but I do hope that you decide to address this. Update: 2/8/21. I haven’t opened this app in a while but I’m glad that I came back to give it another go. It is now a working app that allows me to improve my work flow and I love it all over again! I can touch screen mix again and the plugins all work flawlessly. I may not have put it through all of its paces but for what I use it for it is back on top and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you developers for working this out! Update: 2/18/21. Sadly ten days of logic remote bliss has been replaced again with sadness. I’m not sure what this is about but this app cannot properly interpret the mixer data. I can still use as transport. Same troubles as before, mixer info is inaccurate, tracks don’t appear, channels don’t correspond, aux channels are totally weird, names incorrect, inserts on the wrong tracks, extra aux tracks that don’t exist on the computer mixer. It’s a mess. :( I suppose some helpful information might help. I’m running a 14,1 iMac. OS 10.14.6. Logic 10.5.1 and logic remote on I pad pro 12 w/iPadOS 14.4
Only works about 50% of the time for me. iPhone SE gen 2 to my 2019 iMac. I don’t have an iPad to see if runs better there. Kind of disappointed.
I want to love (and use) this app way more. The concept is brilliant. For recording in Logic it is fantastic to assign common shortcuts to buttons, really saves time for editing in Logic. However, PLEASE make the iPhone app compatible with MainStage! It works great with iPad, but isn’t cross-compatible with iPhone...why? I want to be able to assign patches to buttons so I can just click a button and be playing a new instrument. Works great on the iPad, but I’m already using that for my chord sheets. Using the phone screen would be ideal. Please make it work for all devices?
Since garage band does not support foot switches to control the pedalboard, this was the only thing I was hoping this thing to be able to do. Aaaaans it can’t. “Smart controls” can only control the amp knobs.
I have an old Mac and cannot update my version of Logic, which is stable at 10.4.8 I just purchased a new iPad and I was hoping to use this app to help me, but it is not working/supported with the old version of LPX. Developers should really allow us to keep a version that works with the old version of their own program! This really wasn’t thought through!
