Apple releases Logic Pro X 10.5

Cupertino, California — Apple today unveiled a major update to Logic Pro X with a professional version of Live Loops, a completely redesigned sampling workflow, and new beat-making tools. With its collection of powerful creative features, Logic Pro X 10.5 will be a massive release for all musicians, including those producing electronic music.

“The Mac and Logic Pro X are essential tools used by the world’s top musicians and producers to create the music that we all love,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Apps Product Marketing. “Logic Pro X 10.5 represents the biggest update to Logic since the launch of Logic Pro X, with powerful new tools that will inspire every artist — from those just getting started with Logic, to those already using it to produce Grammy Award-winning albums. We can’t wait to hear what these artists create next.”

Pro musicians and producers are already expressing their excitement for Logic Pro X 10.5, saying: “Logic Pro X has always been my one and only DAW. The workflow is unmatched, and the built-in sound libraries have been essential to my music from the beginning. Now with the addition of Quick Sampler and Drum Machine Designer, I’m getting back hours I used to spend in the studio building sounds and kits. This lets me spend more time writing new verses and editing 70-take vocals.” — Finneas O’Connell, Grammy Award-winning producer: Billie Eilish, “Bad Guy” and the album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”

“Logic Pro X 10.5 has changed the way we approach making music. We’ve been working with all the new features, from recording sounds with the MacBook Pro’s built-in mic directly into Quick Sampler, to quickly arranging a song while simultaneously recording artists using the Live Loops grid. Logic has been used for years on all our productions and the new version will make it even faster for us to create lasting songs.” — Denzel Baptiste and David Biral of Take a Daytrip, Grammy-nominated producers: Lil Nas X, “Panini”; Sheck Wes, “Mo Bamba”; Travis Scott and Kid Cudi, “THE SCOTTS”; Juice WRLD, “Legends”; Dua Lipa, “Good In Bed”; and YBN Cordae, “Kung Fu.”

Live Loops
With Live Loops on the Mac, Logic users can now create music in new freeform and nonlinear ways. Loops, samples, and recordings can be organized into a new musical grid, where musicians can spontaneously perform and capture different arrangement ideas into the timeline. From there, tracks can be further refined using all of the professional production features in Logic.
Remix FX enhances Live Loops with an exciting collection of electronic effects like Bitcrusher, filter, gater, and repeater that can be performed in real time over individual tracks or the entire song mix. Both features become even more powerful when using the free Logic Remote app, allowing users to pair their iPhone or iPad with their Mac to provide Multi-Touch control over Live Loops and Remix FX.

Sampler and Quick Sampler
Sampler represents the next generation of the popular industry-standard EXS24 plug-in with an all-new modern design and expanded sound-shaping controls, while maintaining full backwards compatibility. Producers can use Sampler to create and edit sophisticated multisampled instruments, using elegant drag-and-drop workflows that automate complex production tasks.

Quick Sampler is a fast and simple way to turn any individual sound into a playable instrument. Musicians can pick a sound from within Logic, the Finder, Voice Memos, or even record directly into Quick Sampler. With just a few clicks, an imported sample can be trimmed, looped, and played across a keyboard controller, with access to creative sound-shaping controls.

Beat Creation

Logic Pro X 10.5 offers a collection of new creative tools designed to work together to make it fast and fluid to build original beats — an integral part of hip hop and electronic music production.

Step Sequencer is a new editor in Logic designed to make it fun and easy to program drum beats, bass lines, and melodic parts using an interface inspired by classic drum machine workflows. Step Sequencer combines a pattern-based style of music creation with powerful editing options for creating original parts — providing detailed control over note velocity, repeat, gate, skip, playback direction, and randomization.

Drum Synth provides a wide collection of kick drums, snares, toms, and percussion sounds generated entirely by software. Each sound is accompanied by dedicated sound-shaping controls to help musicians fine-tune their favorite parts. Drum Synth sounds can be used on any pad in Drum Machine Designer, where it can even be blended with samples for creative sound design options.

Drum Machine Designer, the tool for building electronic drum kits in Logic, has been enhanced to integrate with the new sampling and beat-programming workflows. Each drum pad can host the new Quick Sampler and Drum Synth plug-ins, making it easy to edit and shape individual sounds within a drum kit. After kits are created, they can be played in real time, or programmed with Step Sequencer.

Logic Remote

Logic Remote is a free companion app that allows users to pair an iPhone or iPad with their Mac to control and perform Logic features and instruments using Multi-Touch. Logic Remote is receiving a major update to allow triggering of sounds in Live Loops, browsing and adding loops, and applying Remix FX to a session.

Optimized Performance for the Mac

Logic Pro X has been optimized to take advantage of the latest Mac hardware and the power of macOS, delivering incredible performance when working with the most demanding projects with thousands of tracks and hundreds of real-time plug-ins.

Pricing and Availability

Logic Pro X 10.5 is available today as a free update for all existing users, and is available on the Mac App Store for $199.99 (US) for new customers. Logic Remote 1.4 is also available today as a free download on the App Store. Customers can sign up for a free trial of Logic Pro X. For more information, visit www.apple.com/logic-pro.

I just started converting some old rx2 instruments to Apple loops. This update couldn't be more timely in terms of loop integration. I usually wait to install updates, but going to jump on this one. Hope it doesn't break other stuff!

I've installed it.
For some reason it is crashing when selecting some drums kits in Drum Machine Designer.

I'm on a 2019 Mac Pro, 16 core, 160GB RAM.

It is such an amazing implementation of such superb features. Sampler is amazing, step sequencer is the best and most complete step sequencer I had a chance to use, Live loops implementation is out of this world. This could easily be called 11 and I would gladly pay for this.

This finally settled Logic as my no.1 DAW for good now. Just one last thing really missing for me...a plugin search.

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong here? If I import any loop WAV, AIFF, etc from outside of logic into the arrange window - it still prompts me to bring up the "Smart Tempo" editor instead of just syncing it without any fuss. Am I on the wrong setting?

Yeah the search would be ace. I still really like Live's implementation of the channel strip where you can see all of your processes and how they feed into one another so you're not opening a million plug in windows to change a parameter on multiple plugs. It's all right there in one view.

Other than that I'm not totally sure what Live has on Logic anymore at this point.

Quick Sampler is actually easier to use then Simpler - especially for adjusting transient speeds, etc.

Probably Logic 11 will be Catalina and up.
Until 2 weeks ago I was using Mavericks decided to update and i went with Mojave and I think I won't update until I really have to. I am really surprise that this update supports Mojave I thought it was going be Catalina only.


Really happy with this update. I was using Logic 10.4.4 the other updates dint work so well with some old projects. This one it's working perfectly.

I’ve been transitioning to logic for a while after years of being in an abusive codependent relationship with Avid. Might be the weekend before I really get to mess with this update.

Amazing how responsive Logic has been to the wishes of its user base lately.

Have not seen any practical reasons to abandon Logic before this upgrade now it's looking like Apple is locking me in for life the way things are improving.

On my wish list would be some console emulations within the DAW offering different flavors ala Harrison; ways to give the DAW different sonic characteristics without using plugins sort of like luts for video but more advanced (different harmonic, headroom and distortion characteristics etc.).

Sort of like replaceable sonic DAW skins.

There is still a lot of room for improvement within the DAW landscape before computer scientist figure out a way of making quantum computers accessible and small enough to replace traditional desk/laptops.

Huawei CEO thinks that G6 networks around the year 2030 will deliver speeds of a terabyte a second.

Funny thing is that I got a failing grade in Logic 1 @ Stockholm University (learn alot more when I fail then when I pass) which allows me to understand some of the math/logic in academic papers related to transfer learning a field within AI.

With the current AI arms race (the US forcing China to catch up when it comes to micro processing R&D etc) one don't have to be Einstein to realize that things related to technology are about to change in dynamic, radical and unpredictable ways.

Just hope we get to enjoy some of the spill-overs.
