Apple has announced a new suite of updates for Logic Pro X, its professional music-making software. Most notably, there’s a lot of attention paid to expanding the DAW’s smart tempo feature, which is used to automatically detect tempo across the entirety of a project.
Smart tempo could previously only be used when recording audio into Logic Pro X. Now, it can also analyze the tempo of recorded MIDI performances and imported multi-track stems, can follow along with a project’s existing tempo, or be used to define it. The original addition of smart tempo was incredibly useful as it eliminated the need to manually set tiny tempo changes and spend time quantizing entire audio recordings.
These are just a few of the updates that are on the laundry list for both pieces of software. A full list of what’s new for both Logic and MainStage can be found on Apple’s support pages.
