Under the hood, GarageBand and Logic Pro share the same technologies. So when you open your GarageBand projects in Logic Pro, you can start where you left off. A lot of things will feel familiar, only now you can track a new part with a vintage keyboard or classic synth. Try out endless combinations of virtual amps, speaker cabinets and pedals. Build up your songs with more than 15,000 Apple Loops and an unprecedented collection of samples. And pull off sophisticated edits and mixes.
Fully featured mixing.
In Logic Pro, you can tweak your music using the kind of full mixing console you’d find in a recording studio. Mix like a pro with faders, a larger number of input channels and mix groups. You can even work in full surround. Logic Pro puts it all at your fingertips in one well-designed, intuitive display.
Combine your recordings into the perfect part.
Logic Pro keeps track of all your takes and lets you see them all at once. It lets you quickly select your favourite pieces from each take and turns them into the ultimate final part, complete with smooth crossfades to make the comp sound seamless.
Logic Pro gives you a lot more control over your parameters. You can automate any parameter with complete precision and assign an effect or instrument to a hardware controller. Then you can record its movement in real time, just like a musical performance.
Create exciting, sophisticated beats.
Logic Pro lets you use the Ultrabeat plug-in to call up 50 drum kits, 400 drum patterns, and more than 1,000 synthesized, sampled and hybrid drum sounds. A rich palette of effects, filters, LFOs and EQs gives you unlimited options for tweaking voices. A built-in 32-step sequencer makes it easy to program beats and vary the character of each voice on a per-step basis.
Hear your sounds in real acoustic spaces.
The traditional reverb effects in GarageBand can add a lot to a track. Space Designer in Logic Pro lets you play your music in some of the world’s most distinctive acoustic spaces, from a tiny wine cellar to a Gothic cathedral. You’ve got more than 1,300 impulse responses — including Warped Effects — to work with, and you can shape those responses with a full parameter set. You can even capture your own favourite room sound.
