This app used to be amazing. What happened Apple!? Please fix this app and update it as it no longer connects.
It’s really useful when working but like all things with apple, don’t expect much unless you’re on new hardware and latest software. Doesn’t really work otherwise.
I’ve tried several methods to establish a connection with Logic Pro and nothing works. Apple support documentation does not help. I suppose like many other people I have a backwards compatibility issue. Very disappointing and not what I expected from Apple.
I’ve tried pairing with my iPhone and my iPad to my mac. All devices are brand new and the latest models.
The newest M1 iPad could easily run Logic Pro…. but instead we get this productivity killer that always frustrates and leaves you wishing Apple would lust come out with Logic Pro for the iPad…. which it could easily run with the new M1 chip! Did I mention that?!!
The app has worked great so far and I have not had a single issue with it. I’m just writing saying that in order to take full advantage of the Logic Remote, there should be a more similar interface in some things as the OS version. Most specifically, when opening plugins for things like synthesizers and adjusting the advanced controls. This may be impossible to do with 3rd party plugins, but should definitely be a feature with the plugins that do come with logic. Right now when opening a plugin, you have to scroll through several pages of parameters when the whole plugin interface could fit on the screen. The will greatly facilitate and improve use of things such as the latch automation feature and will truly make Logic Remote just as powerful as any physical synth connected to a project.
Used to work now just crashes on opening...
I love this app, or at least the concept of it. It crashes often, causing me to have to shut down Logic Pro completely, then reboot it. However, I have to open the Remote app FIRST, then reopen Logic. Please fix this.
As a former user of Logic Pro 9, bough & used for few months, than logicpro10 came out but no way to use the previous format ! So I was afraid to go to the new version logic, will it be a waisted money again ? Be responsible please Apple ?!. Unless Will it be a possible credit of some sort ? with the new version? Thanks.
