Logic Pro X First Play

6

Specific Features Well, today ended up being quite a bit different from what I had originally planned!  Woke up and during the usual coffee, email, and web-browsing routine, realized that Apple’s Logic Pro X was released overnight.  Ok then, guess that answers a lot of questions about Logic’s future!
