3. Per-track assignment of distributed audio processing.
4. Advanced QuickTime support with output of DV or DVCPRO over FireWire.
5. Breakpoint editing of all automated parameters.
6. Global tracks for editing, tempo, signatures, markers, video and more.
7. Shuffle and Auto-Crossfade Arrange Edit modes.
8. Flexible, object-oriented editing of audio and MIDI.
9. Real-time score transcriptions.

Unleashing the Next Wave

Logic Pro 7 features new instruments and effects, state-of-the-art loop composition tools as well as optimizations for the PowerPC G5 processor and Mac OS X, forming a highly productive system that will change the way you compose, record, edit and mix music in any studio environment. The latest version provides near unlimited processing resources through the simple addition of Macintosh computers.
Tap Into Greater Power

The new distributed audio processing feature in Logic Pro 7 offers a plug-and-play solution that provides the ability to tap networked computers for more DSP processing power. Simply add one or more Macintosh systems via Ethernet to your Logic Pro 7 system. The result is an audio and music production system with processing power that was previously unimaginable — up to 128 stereo streams.
Sculpture and UltraBeat
Dynamic Creation

Innovative software instruments solidify the program’s outstanding sound generation capabilities — in the studio and on stage. These new options expand the already comprehensive array of instruments available, broadening the sonic potential of your Macintosh. Simulate any sound with breathtakingly natural timbre in Sculpture, a component modeling synthesizer. Create hypnotic rhythms using Ultrabeat, a beatbox with 25 voices and virtually unlimited parameter adjustment. Low-latency MIDI processing provides control over external sound devices, software instruments and effects.
Infinite Loops
Loop Browser

Apple Loops browsing and editing enable you to time stretch and pitch shift audio files in real time. Apple Loops let you work more efficiently and provide better workflow than conventional file formats. When you insert Apple Loops in software instrument format onto a software instrument track, Logic imports them as MIDI sequences with the originating instrument and effect settings intact. This allows you to change pitch, instrumentation or effects — something you could only dream of with standard audio loops technology. Logic also uses this functionality when you import GarageBand compositions, preserving every detail as you migrate the sessions for editing and producing in a truly professional environment.
Stellar Performance

Logic Pro 7 turns the Macintosh into a digital audio workstation that meets the highest demands for audio quality. It supports audio at 16- and 24-bit resolution and sample rates of up to 192kHz for both audio recording and playback of internal software instruments. Logic Pro 7 offers nine new effect plug-ins, including Guitar Amp Pro, for amp modeling. 32-bit floating-point mathematics provides enormous headroom for internal processing, making it nearly impossible to overload the signal — even during mixdown to 16-bit audio for CD release. In other words, Logic Pro 7 delivers excellence.

System Requirements

* Macintosh computer with PowerPC G4, PowerPC G5 or Intel Core Duo; Intel Core Duo, PowerPC G5, or dual PowerPC G4 processor recommended
* Logic Node applications require PowerPC G5 or Intel Core Duo and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity
* 512MB of RAM
* Mac OS X v10.4.3 or later for PowerPC-based systems; Mac OS X v10.4.4 or later for Intel-based systems
* QuickTime 7.0.3 or later
* 8GB of available hard drive space
* DVD drive for software installation
* Available USB port for XSKey (copy protection)
* Low-latency multi-I/O audio hardware and MIDI interface recommended

Main changes:

* Universal compatibility
Logic Pro 7.2 is a Universal application, which means it's designed to run natively on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs.
* Integrated support for new Apogee Ensemble interface
Logic Pro 7.2 offers integrated support for Ensemble, the new FireWire audio interface solution from Apogee Electronics. Multiple parameters — including headphone level, metering source, output levels, and even microphone input gain — can be manipulated from a control panel within Logic Pro.
* Digidesign Pro Tools HD 7 DAE support
Logic Pro 7.2 is fully compatible with the Pro Tools 7.1 version of DAE. All features are supported, including ESB and EXS24TDM (Users must install an updated Digidesign Stream Manager framework library file, which is downloadable from the Digidesign support website. Users of Pro Tools 6.9 and earlier must use Logic Pro 7.1 or earlier).
* Serato Pitch 'n Time support
Purchase a special Audio Unit version of the Pitch 'n Time plug-in from Serato and you'll have access to its algorithms directly from Logic Pro's Time and Pitch Machine or from the audio time stretch options in Logic's Arrange window. Available exclusively within Logic Pro 7.2, this option renders rich and natural-sounding results, even at extreme settings.
* Improved Rewire support
Logic Pro 7.2 provides support for stereo Rewire objects — and now clearly labels the incoming Rewire streams to reflect the source application. In addition, you can create Rewire objects directly from the Create Multiple option in the Arrange window.
* Enhanced support for control surfaces
The Arrange window in version 7.2 provides visual indication of which tracks are currently active on the control surface. This is especially useful with supported control surfaces that do not provide LCD or other feedback information, such as the newly supported iControl from M-Audio.
* 32-channel support for multi-channel Audio Units instruments
Users of multi-channel Audio Unit instrument applications — such as BFD — will appreciate that Logic Pro now has increased output capacity of to 32 mono-channels.
* Playback of compressed files
Logic Pro 7.2 allows you to play back AAC and Apple Lossless files directly — with no need for conversion. This feature ensures session compatibility with Garageband 3 and offers great sonic quality with the convenience of smaller file sizes.
* Access to new GarageBand 3-compatible plug-ins
Ducker offers automated voiceover volume reduction functionality (ducking) on Output or Bus tracks. Speech Enhancer provides a simple option for cleaning up and enhancing recordings made with the built-in microphones.
* New royalty-free jingles and sound effects Apple Loops
Logic Pro 7.2 includes the same Jingles and Sound Effects library that ship with iLife '06. A dedicated Effects button in the Loop Browser makes it easy to view and filter this new collection of sounds. The library includes more than 200 sound effects and 100 jingles.
