Logic X pro is a massive update for the DAW as it adds a wealth of new instruments and effects. A new feature called ‘Drummer’ will allow the user to program a virtual session drummer who will play along to song in a variety of songs. The feature has been designed in collaboration with Bob Clearmountain who has worked with legendary Rolling Stones, Brice Springsteen and David Bowie. Also Read - iPhone selling in LG stores?

Apple has also introduced a new feature called Logic Remote that will allow the user to control the suite via the iPad. Additional new features include Track Stacks and Arpeggiator.
Apple has tweaked the user interface of Logic, providing a cleaner and more streamlined UI. Features like Track Stacks will let producers organise and collapse multiple tracks into one.
Apple claims using Arpeggiator one can convert a simple keyboard chord into an elaborate performance. Besides this, the new Retro Synth emulates some of the most popular classic synthesiser tones from the 70s and 80s, and Vintage Keyboards models of electric pianos, B3 organs and clavs, with tone-shaping controls.
Bass Amp Designer will allow bass players to play and record using vintage and modern bass amps using amp simulations, with cabinets and microphones that can be configured to build a custom bass rig.
Logic Pro X also features an entirely new Sound Library with an updated loop collection and over 1,500 instrument and effect patches.
