“Apple has updated its professional-level music creation and editing suite, Logic Pro X, for the second time this year,” Dan Ackerman reports for CNET. “The new 10.2 version comes just eight months after version 10.1, and like the previous update, Logic Pro X 10.2 is available for free to current owners of Logic Pro X (the entire software package costs $199).”
“The highlight of the new Logic Pro X 10.2 is the addition of Alchemy, an advanced software synthesizer built into the program,” Ackerman reports. “Alchemy is based on a popular software synth of the same name previously made by UK music software company Camel Audio, which Apple acquired in early 2015. ”
“While Alchemy is the biggest new feature in Logic Pro X 10.2, Apple says there are around 200 bug fixes and enhancements as well, including the ability to upload songs directly from Logic Pro X to Apple Music Connect, the Apple Music feature that allows musicians to post songs and other materials for fans,” Ackerman reports. “Logic Pro X 10.2 is available to download now as a free upgrade for Logic Pro X owners, or as a new purchase for $199.”
