You can do many things remotely with this app, like the smart controls where you can easily play and record, or just play your song with ease… The magic thing about this app is it’s speed. It works fast with and without a cable. When you press something, it immediately happens on your mac. Don’t know why others hate this app so much, maybe because they don’t like the iphone version. It could be awesome if it had even more options. I mean it does support many actions right now, but still not so many. I think it has more potential. It’s a great tool in my workstation, but still sometimes I get tired using it and get back to the computer, because I will need to edit something not present on the app.. Give it a try if you have an iPad, you might love it! Thanks for reading!
It would be nice to hear the session through the iOS app. For instance I’m tracking vocals in another room, I could hear playback through iPhone headphones. So I don’t have to run a separate headphone line.
Make me buy a new phone, new imac, new ipad just to run new plugin update each time. Im sick and tired of being blackmailed into purchasing new hardware and being rendered useless. If i did spend what they are asking i would be homeless. I agreed with another review on here, buy studio one etc.
Sure, there are 3rd party apps out there that kind of/sort of work with other DAWs, but not integrated like this.
Loved it until it auto updated and now is rendered useless because I haven’t updated my logic to 10.5 yet . Apple should really consider making legacy versions that are compatible with older logic versions none of the guys in my band or myself are able to update to 10.5 until we purchase a new Mac to run it on.....thanks apple*note sarcasm * we just built out a whole studio and vocal booth with the design centered around using the logic controller in the booth when no one else could run the session. Guess we are screwed for a while.....
Having just updated Mac OS to the maximum possible version for my hardware and updating to Logic 10.4 a few weeks ago to get the remote apps working again on my phone and iPad I am really frustrated and worried about the future with the release of 10.5 not being compatible with my Mac and now the remote app displaying a compatibility message but continuing to work. These remotes are critical to my workflow and while updating my hardware is going to have to happen at some point I cant do it now and this seems like a really silly reason to have to do so. Please maintain compatibility with 10.4 as this will allow many users with older yet still capable machines to run this app.
The app isn’t bad. Just not as much integration as you’d expect when Apple makes the iPad and Logic. I would love to see the step sequencer added to the app. It would be a solid addition.
I went to record today using the new Logic Remote and many of the functions no longer work. Both my Mac and iPhone are fully updated: iOS and software. Problems in the app: - The arrows at the top of the screen no longer advance to the next/previous track. - Track Fader no longer works - you pull down the track volume and it instantly snaps back to nominal. - It doesn’t engage Mute, Solo, Record, or Recall Solo buttons anymore. *When you press the buttons/arrows they blacken but DO NOT engage. The only buttons/faders working when engaged in the app are the Cycle, Play, Record, Metronome, Dim, and Master Volume fader, Automation Mode, I/O, Send, Volume. In the Automation Mode pane, when selecting Read, Touch, Latch, or Write it does NOT engage those functions in Logic. Some pane functions work where others do NOT. Where I have always witnessed Logic Remote moving faders and making adjustments while looking at Logic on my Mac, it no longer does any of that. Please fix this problem. This remote used to be awesome and was a huge help when recording on my own; without assistance of another person. No it’s a complete hassle!
There is the new FX function that allows you to create effects in Logic, but whenever I try to use it, it glitches and bugs out on me while recording, and I can’t undo what has recorded, which is very frustrating. I tried to record a filter out in my track, and it would just glitch out and reconnect to the 2018 MacBook Pro that I am using, and my iPad is an iPad Pro, so the hardware isn’t the issue. Please update this so it functions properly. Also I had to re-record things due to the Logic app recording a filter out section, and it filtered out part of the whole track, not just the section that I wanted.
I like what is happening with remote, especially with remix fx. I’m still wanting better UX with drumming and not repeat via iPad. I’m an Ableton push user and really appreciate optimal placement of time divisions near pads. Looking forward to tweaks. I also like having the iPad plugin directly to the current MacBook pros via USB-C.
