Emagic Logic Audio Platinum 5.0 (Mac)
Logic Platinum 5 is the centerpiece of the world's premier music composition and audio production system. The most powerful product in the Logic Series, Logic Platinum is renowned for its technical excellence, and is used by more professionals than any other software of its kind.
The most advanced Logic ever produced
Logic Platinum 5 offers countless creative options for MIDI and audio manipulation. It features extensive audio hardware support including TDM (Mac OS), OMF and OpenTL support, and is capable of 192 tracks of audio playback at up to 24Bit/96kHz rates, in a variety of audio formats. The audio functionality also incorporates a digital mixer with Surround Sound up to 7.1, over 50 high-quality audio effect plug-ins, and fully-automated, sample-accurate mixing facilities. The 32 Bit internal signal path ensures that audio quality remains pristine throughout, and the incorporated high-end POW-r dithering process provides master-quality results. Logic supports a virtually unlimited number of MIDI tracks with timing accuracy to 1/3,840 of a note. A wide range of synchronization options ensures that Logic Platinum connects easily to both the digital and analog worlds.
Most importantly for professionals working in music production, film scoring or post production facilities is Logic's renowned stability and reliability. This unique combination of tools, an elegant user interface, flexible working methods, rock-solid performance and a comprehensive development schedule make Logic Platinum the perfect software environment around which to base your studio.
Extensive Hardware Support
To ensure compatibility with your existing, or future, audio interface hardware, Logic Platinum simultaneously supports: SoundManager, EASI, ASIO, Digidesign DirectI/O and Audiowerk on Mac OS. In addition, Digidesign's TDM system for ProTools hardware, including Surround, is extensively supported. The optional ESB TDM marries Logic's native processing capabilities (outputs and EXS24) with those of the TDM hardware, greatly enhancing the capabilities of the TDM system.
Rock Solid MIDI Timing and Synchronization
Logic incorporates a proprietary Emagic technology called AMT - Active MIDI Transmission. The combination of Unitor8 or AMT8 hardware and Logic ensures that MIDI timing is precise across all ports, even in the largest of MIDI systems. Literally hundreds of MIDI ports can be addressed, with MIDI data arriving simultaneously at each, no matter how dense the MIDI arrangement. For synchronization purposes, Logic Platinum will send and receive MIDI Clock, MTC, MMC and word clock signals, making it ideal for film, TV and post-production facilities.
The Arrange window is Logic's primary workspace. Individual MIDI sequences and audio regions can be recorded, arranged and edited, with audio and MIDI data handled in a virtually identical fashion. These audio and MIDI "objects" can be packed into nested folders for quick and easy song arrangement. Tracks can be individually zoomed, soloed or muted, and mixing of audio and MIDI data is handled seamlessly by the elegant new automation system. Markers can be created and recalled to quickly "jump" to any location in your songs, complete with production notes. Audio regions can be flexibly, and easily, managed. MIDI edits such as quantization, transposition, note length changes and more are calculated in realtime. Audio and MIDI objects are easily resized, soloed, muted, looped and mixed intuitively in the Arrange window - all this in realtime, without stopping the sequencer - and more importantly, your creative flow!
Total Recall Mixing and Automation
Software mixing has never been easier or more intuitive: Logic Platinum 5 introduces a refined track-based automation system found in the Arrange window. Automated parameters are displayed with full names and values for fast and optimal control over even the most complex automation situations.
