Apple Logic Express 7 Upgrade from Logic Express 6 (Mac)
Create your own music using an advanced spectrum of features and tools for computer based music production. Logic Express provides a step up from GarageBand for aspiring musicians, producers and composers without breaking the bank. With the same flexible layout as Logic Pro, you can dive deeper into the creation and manipulation of audio and MIDI.
Logic Express lets you produce a convincing demo of your band, create a remix of your favorite track or score QuickTime movies. This affordable virtual studio integrates a rich feature set for both music and audio production in one application. In addition to the Apple Loops you’re familiar with from GarageBand, you’ll enjoy the wide variety of software instruments. These provide, for example, faithful emulations of vintage keyboard classics as well as synthetic sounds, ranging from digital to virtual analog. Composers and music theory teachers will also appreciate the full-featured score editor.
Professional Multichannel Recording
Record a complete band in Logic Express with seamless integration of professional multi-channel audio hardware. In contrast to GarageBand, this enables you to record up to 12 instruments, voices, environmental sounds, effects and more at the same time. Then you can tweak each of these tracks with hyper-precise editors. High resolution audio of up to 24-bit/96kHz, the adaptive self-configuring track mixer as well as 32-bit floating point math provide pro sound quality.
Grow Your Own Loops
Aspiring remixers and electronic music composers can’t live without loops. Logic Express offers the familiar Apple Loops browser of GarageBand, hosting a multitude of Apple Loops. Browse quickly through the largest libraries simply by specifying instrument, genre or mood. Preview them instantly at your song’s tempo and pitch. Logic Express configures the channel strip automatically for Apple Loops on software instrument tracks. What’s more, you can construct your own Apple Loops from conventional audio files such as recordings or bounced phrases produced with software instruments using the Apple Loop Utility.
High-Quality Software Instruments and Plug-Ins
For in-depth sound creations, the range of synthesizers provided in Logic Express proves itself as a priceless resource. Offering a richer set of parameters, they feature precise control on every single shade of the sound. Seamlessly integrated in the Track Mixer, you can effortlessly record and edit parameter changes.
The stylish, accessible FM synthesizer EFM1 creates a wide range of digital sounds that characterized the music of the 80s. Generating the sounds from frequency modulation technology, you can play crystal-clear bells as well as deep bass or string pads. The virtual analog beast ES1 provides sounds to enrich every production — from massive basses to rich pads or ultra-sharp percussion. Plug-ins like EQ and Reverb provide precision treatment of your sound. Others, such as the Autofilter and Guitar Amp, invite you to experiment wildly.
Songwriters can produce impressive demo songs by incorporating audio recordings, sample-based sounds and virtual instruments entirely on the computer. But users will find it easy to share compositions with other musicians in a traditional way with Logic Express as well, since it now houses the full-featured score editor from Logic Pro, for simply stunning results.
