Logic Remote is a companion app for Logic Pro and GarageBand on the Mac. It provides an innovative way to extend the creative power of Logic or GarageBand by using your iPad or iPhone. Designed to take full advantage of Multi-Touch, Logic Remote offers new ways to record, mix, and even perform instruments from anywhere in the room, turning your iPad or iPhone* into a mixer, transport control, and a flexible Touch Instrument. Play Logic Instruments • Play any Logic instrument using a familiar piano keyboard or guitar fretboard • Tap out beats on drum pads or a drum kit • Control Live Loops by triggering cells or switching between scenes • Program beats, bass lines, and melodic parts in Step Sequencer • Perform Remix FX over individual tracks or the entire song • Use the scale mode to limit notes to fit the key of your song • Tap and strum entire chords using Chord Strip view • Make simple or dramatic changes to your sounds with Smart Controls • Add the Arpeggiator plug-in to any instrument Navigate Logic Projects • Operate basic transport controls like start, stop, record, and cycle • Swipe the LCD or bar ruler to navigate to any location • Select and jump to any Logic project marker • Control recordings on your Mac from another room • Browse the Sound Library and remotely change Patches • Enable Smart Help and hover over interface elements on your Mac to display documentation on your iPad • Remotely trigger Logic key commands with customizable buttons Mix Your Logic Sessions • Use Multi-Touch gestures to adjust Mixer volume, pan, solo, and mute controls • Swipe to scroll or jump in banks to navigate through Mixer faders • Use the level meter strip to monitor levels and identify clipping • Enable and change automation modes for each fader • Use Multi-Touch gestures to shape the tone of your tracks with Visual EQ • Plug-in view provides access to Logic or Audio Unit plug-in parameters *Smart Controls, Sound Library navigation, Smart Help, full mixer, and access to plug-in controls are available only on iPad
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.
is ipad pro that bad it cant run normal logic...???
I been an logic user since Logic Pro 7 and I must say we’ve come a long way. I’m aware their are quite a bit of concerns on the back end logic of the logic remote, yet I’m not here to speak on it at this time. As a songwriter I find this tool extremely helpful , especially when your recording yourself and want to eliminate the back and forth to the control room - I was wondering if by chance you can integrate the notepad project and track functions on the app - this helps with documenting lyrics and calling out those specifics for the mixer per track - it be nice to never have to leave the booth - it also would be nice not to have to go back and forth between the notepad app - idk, maybe similarly to the way the audio recording (voice memo) has been ended to logic - is it possible to tag notepad notes the a session? Just throwing out ideas - I myself am just a novice developer but I’m sure you guys can figure it out. I’d love to hear back - this would be a game changer for us songwriters in the industry
I have a new iPhone 12 mini and new MacBook Pro 2021 So I can’t logic Pro remote work when I connect to the lightning cable? My Wi-Fi is not good in my recording area and I do a lot of self production so I’m very annoyed and I lost my ability to use the remote! Hopefully with the Wi-Fi extender a mesh system I’ll have it up and running
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.
