Sure it’s a bit of a facetious headline, but in the workflow of the modern media composer, or music producer, track counts can really add up. Though there have always been workarounds, involving bouncing stems and freezing virtual instrument tracks, being able to run ever expanding sessions with maximum flexibility has always been a challenge.
With the latest update of Logic, there is now support for a 1,000 audio tracks and 1,000 virtual instruments, four times the previous capability.
Need more tracks? Logic has got ’em. With up to a thousand tracks each of audio and software instruments, the DAWs new mixer is virtually endless.
The new Logic Pro X software is officially version 10.4.5. And though point updates are typically incremental, this new supercharged capability seems to be designed to work hand-in-glove with the new Mac Pro (there’s no use having a 2,000 track session if you don’t have the horsepower to run it).
As well as the added grunt, the loop browser can filter by loop type. There’s also the redesigned DeEsser 2 plugin, offering up deeper sibilance compression. MIDI beat clocks can be sent to individual ports with unique settings like plug in delay compensation.
