March 6, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Harmony Systems, Inc. announced the worldwide availability of Delora lpTouch, an iPad application that functions as a remote controller for the Apple Logic Pro application program on a Mac. lpTouch is an intuitive, powerful control surface app optimized for use with Logic. It uses Logic’s built-in Open Sound Control (OSC) control surface support, so all that’s needed is a working Wi-Fi connection between the Mac and iPad.

lpTouch expands the Delora Software line of music controller apps for iOS devices and the Mac, including gbTouch and gbRemote for GarageBand.

Features & Benefits

Adjust track settings, send values, Logic’s EQ, plug-in effects, and software instruments to “dial in” to the right sound. Mute or solo any track to evaluate a mix during playback. Arm one or more tracks for recording. Know where you’re at with the timecode and bar-beat display, and track name and number identification. Access transport controls from any screen.

No more frustrating attempts to make sound setting adjustments with tiny computer screen controls and mouse. lpTouch’s five screens offer large, usable multi-touch faders and rotaries – with values displayed – to easily edit software instruments, insert parameters, EQ settings, or track volume, pan, and send levels.

Pricing & Availability

lpTouch is available for $4.99 (USD) on the iTunes App Store >>

Logic Pro X moves to the the App Store

September 8, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

So far no apparent plans to turn Logic into Garage Band, as many have feared

Apple is reportedly finishing an update to Logic Pro 9, its professional digital audio and music sequencing program, taking care not to rile existing users with significant changes.

The new update is reportedly called Logic Pro X to maintain the same branding as Apple’s recent Final Cut X. However, according to a report by Japanese blog Macotakara, Apple’s Logic team is making great efforts to stress that it will not shift toward a GarageBand interface, heading off fears that Logic Pro might lose its professional edge.
Like Aperture and Final Cut Pro X, the new Logic Pro X package will be released via the App Store. In the move, the Logic Pro accessory app MainStage (used to manage virtual instruments during live performances) will reportedly spin off into a separate app, while WaveBurner (a standalone app used to master audio CDs) will have its functionality incorporated into Logic Pro X itself.

SoundTrack Pro 3, formerly included in both Final Cut Studio and Logic Studio as a tool for synching background audio to video, is reported to have a replacement but the report has not filled in any details regarding that program. The new app will likely be added to the Mac App Store alongside Final Cut Pro X, Logic Pro X, MainStage and the existing Aperture.
