個人的には、Logicという製品自体がアップルによる民業圧迫ではないかとも思っている面もあるのだが、今回の機能強化でさらにそうした面が強まったようにも感じている。Logic Pro X Logic Pro Xは、年のリリース以降、 実際、筆者もLogic Pro X さて、今回のアップデートでは、さまざまな機能強化が図られているが、最大のポイントはLive Loopsという機能を搭載したことだ。この名前と画面を見て、おや? と思った方も多いと思うが、これはiOS版「GarageBand」に4年前に搭載されていた機能であり、独AbletonのLiveとソックリな機能といえば分かりやすいだろう。ご存知の通りiOS版GarageBandはiPhoneやiPadに無料で付属しているDAWアプリ。そのGarageBandに先んじて搭載されていた機能が、後から最高峰のLogic Logic pro x sampler track free download Xに搭載されるという珍現象となっているわけだ。.

実際にLogic Pro Ссылка на продолжение また、iOS版のGarageBandのLive Loopsにセットで搭載されていたRemix FXもほぼそのままの機能としてLogic Pro X Logic Remotoはその名の通り、LogicをiOSからリモートコントロールするための機能で、従来からも存在していた。が、今回のLogic Pro X 他社のDAWも含め、iPadなどでリモートコントロールできるのは珍しいことではない。マウス操作しなくても、再生や録音などのトランスポートコントロールができたり、複数のフェーダーを同時にコントロールできるというのがこの手のリモートコントロールアプリの特徴だが、Logic Remoteではトランスポートコントロールや、フェーダーコントロールができるのはもちろんのこと、まさにGarageBandを操作している感覚でLogic本体を操作できる。.

実際Live Loopsを動かしたり、その結果を録音したり、両手でRemote FXをコントロールできるから、Mac本体をマウスで使うより圧倒的に操作しやすく感じる。また、iPadから音が出ているのか? と感じるほど、レイテンシーなく操作でき、Smart Controlのキーボードで演奏できたり、コードストリップでコード演奏ができるなど、よくできていると感じた。. 今回のアップデート内容は、Live Loopsの搭載だけではない。Logicの音源の代名詞ともいえるサンプラー音源EXS24が、まったく新しいプラグインSamplerに置き換わっている。EXS24は、20年以上の歴史を持つサンプラーで、アップルがもともとのLogicの開発元である独Emagicを買収する前からあったものだ。. 非常に幅広く使われてきたサンプラーだけに、Native InstrumentsのKONTAKTと並ぶサンプラーの二大フォーマットの1つとなっているほどで、実際Logic Pro Xのインストゥルメントの一覧の中からはEXS24がなくなり、戸惑く人も多いだろう。.

画面は大きくなり、波形で見ながらループポイントを設定できたり、フィルターやエンベロープの設定ができるだけでなく、MOD MATRIXという機能が搭載されて、各モジュールを自由にパッチングして音作りができるようになっている。もっとも、何かすごいものがここで誕生したというわけではなく、最近のサンプラーとしては、ごく普通の機能であり、EXS24との互換性を保ちつつ、今風の音源に進化したという恰好だ。.

一方、Samplerとともに、Quick Samplerというプラグイン音源も追加されている。これはさまざまなサウンド素材をより簡単に音源にして、すぐ演奏できる加工ツール。手持ちのWAVファイルやAIFFファイルなど取り込んで、自動的にループポイントなども設定した上で使えるという便利なものだ。ビートのあるリズム素材などはスライス機能によって、自動的にスライスされ、キーボードに割り振られる。まあ、昔からあるPropellerheadのReCycle! そのほかにも、Drum Synthというドラム音源が搭載されたり、Drum Machine DesignerというエレクトロニックドラムのキットをLogicでつくるためのツールが搭載されたほか、今ごろか? という感じでステップシーケンサが搭載されるなど、さまざまな点で強化されており、まさにLogic Pro X発表以来最大規模のアップデートと言える。.

ここまで見てきてもわかる通り、Ableton Live的なLive Loopsやサンプラー、ステップシーケンサなど、いずれもEDM系の音楽制作に寄った機能が追加された形であり、これまでのLogicのコアである部分はそれほど大きく変わったわけではない。. もっとも、今回のLogic Pro X このビリー・アイリッシュのプロジェクトデータの配布についてはともかくとして、改めてLogicに対して感じるのは、民業圧迫だな、ということ。当然アップルも民間企業なので、民業圧迫という表現が正しくないのは承知の上だが、これだけの機能、性能を持ったDAWをコンピュータメーカーであり、OSメーカーであるアップルが競合他社より安い価格24,円 税込 で販売するのは、やはり反則だと思う。. しかも7年間マイナーバージョンアップという扱いで無料バージョンアップを続けていることを考えると、5,円以下の値付けにしていると言っても過言ではないだろう。しかも、3月末からは90日間フリートライアルというキャンペーンも行なっているし、教育機関向けにはMainStageのほかFinal Cut Pro、Motion 5、Compressor 4とセットで24,円で出しているので、ほとんどタダに近い配布だ。.

無料配布しているGarageBandもそうだが、Macのプロモーションのためのソフトといってもおかしくない状況。もちろん「ソフトウェアはこう作ることで大きなメリットを出せる」とお手本を示したうえで、各ソフトウェアメーカーに開発を促すとかアドバイスを行うというのであれば、素晴らしいと思うが、今回のLogic Pro X 話題の「ATEM Mini Pro」試してみた. AV Watch 製品 音楽制作 藤本健のDigital Audio Laboratory 第回.

Logic Pro – Apple(日本) – Add a sample

 

If you are lucky enough to have the original old hard drive you created the samples on, and you are able to somehow connect it to your Mac – it will work. But copy the folder of samples to your new drive s and it stops working. Lots of long standing bugs have never been fixed in Logic, but with every update new bugs are introduced.

Good luck running a session relying on punching into a track. Zoom settings are having random weird problems.

They are all excellent and capable DAWs. However, after using Logic Pro X, it is hard to migrate to any other music software. I find myself able to create music with relative ease that the other DAWs just are not capable of. The MIDI capabilities alone are second to none in Logic and the ability to compose music in all styles makes it the best of the best. Another huge plus is the constant and free updates Apple provides… updates that are really upgrades in the quality and number of plug-ins and soft instruments built into the program.

Composing music or just recording a band is easy with this software. Whether you are into acoustic, jazz, electronica or rock, this software package is the best there is and gets updated constantly by Apple. Apple takes this software very seriously and I commend them for their excellence. Version However, it does have on issue now with Flex Pitch and Flex Tim. Total disaster when only trying to use Flex Pitch and not edit the time. When you turn off Flex and Follow, all of your time and pitch corrections disappear.

I just want to use flex. Nothing can fix this. An expanded synthesis section with sound-shaping controls brings more depth and dynamics to your instruments — it features twin filters with parallel and serial routings, and five filters modeled after both analog and modern synths. An extendable modulation section allows you to add more sources and destinations as needed.

And the reimagined mapping editor adds powerful, time-saving features that speed the creation of complex instruments — including editing commands for automatic mapping, automatic loop finding, and analyzing and splitting samples into zones. And save hours of tedious editing with new drag-and-drop hot zones. Quick Sampler is a fast and easy way to work with a single sample.

Or record audio directly into Quick Sampler using a turntable, microphone, musical instrument, or even channel strips playing in Logic Pro.

In a few steps, you can transform an individual sample into a fully playable instrument. With Flex Time, you can keep your sample playing at the same speed no matter which notes you play.

And with Slice Mode, you can split a single sample into multiple slices — perfect for chopping up vocals or breaking up and resequencing drum loops. Adjust loop start, end, and crossfade right on the waveform with easy-to-use markers.

Use the auto-loop command to quickly create seamlessly looped samples. Slice drum loops and vocal phrases into a bank of samples, then play them from any keyboard or drum pad. Record a sample using an external source like a mic or instrument. Auto Sampler lets you save hours by easily creating fully playable sampler instruments from hardware instruments, other software instruments, and effect plug-ins.

Save time and multiple steps by dragging and dropping samples directly into the track header. Logic Pro automatically creates channel strips and imports samples into Sampler, Quick Sampler, and Alchemy to make sophisticated sampler instruments or create a Drum Machine Designer kit. Watch how to build multiple-sample kits. Watch how to sample vocal loops. This powerful but easy-to-use plug-in creates synthesized drum sounds. Choose from a diverse collection of drum models and shape their sound with up to eight simple controls.

Drum Synth is also directly integrated into the bottom of the Drum Machine Designer interface — giving you a focused set of sound-shaping controls. Open Drum Kit Designer and select a kit. You can swap pieces to build a custom kit, choosing from a diverse variety of snares, kicks, toms, hi-hats, and cymbals.

Finesse the sound of each drum by adjusting the tuning, dampening, and gain. And enable stereo or mono room and overhead mics. Each kit comes with its own unique mix designed by an industry hitmaker.

Choose a more elaborate Producer Kit and it loads with a Patch that gives you access to the full multichannel mix, along with all the processing and routing the producer used. Once you see how the pros get their signature sounds, you can go with their techniques — or tweak away.

Watch the drum kit designer demo. Redesigned to be more intuitive and integrated, Drum Machine Designer lets you effortlessly build electronic drum kits. Apply individual effects and plug-ins on each discrete drum pad to experiment with sound design and beat-making in new ways. Each pad normally plays a single note, but if you open the track stack and select any subtrack, you can play all of the pitches of a single sound to create bass lines or melodic parts.

You can also create a unique layered sound by assigning the same trigger note to two different pads. Alchemy, the ultimate sample-manipulation synthesizer, is the most powerful instrument in Logic Pro. Powerful Performance Controls invite you to explore and play with the sounds you choose. Alchemy is a monster of a synth with multiple sound-generating engines, including additive, spectral, formant, granular, and virtual analog.

Groundbreaking morphing and resynthesis features let you manipulate and combine samples in extraordinary ways. And the vast number of filters, modulation routes, arpeggiation options, and effects makes for limitless possibilities. Short Plucky Synth uses the Transform Pad to instantly jump or slowly morph between variations of the original sound. Luscious Arp Layers uses multiple arpeggiators on different virtual analog sources within a single instrument to produce complex musical patterns.

This clip features Brassy Jazz Ensemble, a stack of additive synth brass mixed with sampled analog synth strings. Multiple arpeggiators drive a variety of sample sounds and synthesis techniques, including virtual analog and additive, via modulation. These two realistic plug-in instruments feature sophisticated articulation controls. They allow for the nuanced gestures a human performer would make when playing solo or ensemble string and brass instruments. A versatile synthesizer that delivers sounds ranging from classic analog to modern digital.

The synthesis engine features three analog-modeled and wavetable oscillators, as well as dual multimode analog resonant filters and extensive modulation options. Go for analog tones like earthshaking bass, textures, screaming leads, sweeping pads, and sawtooth waves. Or use distinctive digital sounds like bells, plucky bass, and brash leads. Play authentically re-created models of the Hammond B3 organ, the Mellotron, the Hohner Clavinet D6, and the Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer, and Hohner electric pianos — with all the character and quirks of the originals.

The Arpeggiator transforms simple chords into elaborate performances. Go with professionally designed presets, or shape the evolving performance by adjusting the rate, note order, and octave range of the notes. And add swing to help the Arpeggiator groove with the feel of your song. Scale velocity, generate a rapid-fire series of notes, transpose incoming notes or conform them to a scale, and more. Watch the arpeggiator demo.

Sculpture is a unique physical modeling instrument that produces tones no other synthesizer can. By re-creating the sound of vibrating materials like wood, glass, nylon, or metal, it generates uncommon and creative variations of strings, bells, chimes, and other instruments.

You can change the virtual body of the instrument to everything from guitar to cello, flute, and more. Control how the instrument is plucked, bowed, or otherwise played. A deep set of modulation parameters produce movement and evolving textures. Use plug-ins to help you perfect or manipulate the color and personality of your tracks.

Bring DJ-style effects and transitions to your tracks with a collection of stutters, echoes, filters, vinyl scratches and stops, reverse playback sounds, bit crushes, and gating effects.

When you connect Logic Remote, you can use the power of Multi-Touch to manipulate up to seven effects at once. ChromaVerb is a high-end reverb plug-in that uses unique modeling to reproduce both natural and otherworldly acoustic spaces. It features 14 different models with tempo-synced parameters, up to seconds of decay, and a colorful visual spectrum that provides meaningful feedback so you can see how reverb complements your tracks.

The Vintage EQ collection brings authentic re-creations of three of the most revered analog hardware EQs, with support for mono and stereo and control over analog saturation and heat. Add rhythmic movement to any track by arranging filters, effects, and independent step sequencers to create and control a wide range of treatments over time. Eight different effects can be organized in any order to tailor diverse sound-design options to your needs.

The powerful Compressor features a fully scalable interface inspired by the look and feel of legendary studio favorites. Seven models provide a wealth of options.

And the Histogram Meter view lets you instantly see the results of your parameters, controls, and knob movements. Add punch and presence to your bass, drums, synths, and guitar with this powerful multi-effect plug-in.

Seven effect blocks, including distortion, modulation, and bandpass filters, can be combined to dial up a range of sonic colors in your tracks — from mild sheen to thick, bass-heavy distortion. Versatile, scalable multiband EQ includes eight bands: highpass, lowpass, low and high shelving filters, and four flexible parametric filters. The frequency analyzer provides a graphical look at your sound so you can quickly zero in on refining your performances.

With built-in EQ controls and adjustable volume, filter, and density envelopes, Space Designer features a real-time convolution process that produces a reverb nearly indistinguishable from that of a real room or hall. Choose from over included IR samples or create and edit your own. An intuitive hands-on graphic interface and the unique ability to synthesize dense reverbs make Space Designer equally suited to both sound design and music production.

Ringshifter combines a ring modulator with a frequency shifter effect in a clear, compact interface. The ring modulator mode adds a metallic or clangorous sound and the frequency shifter alters the frequency relationship of the original harmonics, resulting in sounds that range from sweet and spacious phasing effects to robot-like timbres.

Re-create legendary sounds and craft your own unique tones by mixing and matching 25 amp heads, five EQs, 10 reverbs, 25 speaker cabinets, and seven mics that you can position freely around the speaker cone. Classic American silverface and blackface combos. A full range of British stacks and combos. Ultra-high-gain metal stacks. And even rare amps that would be hard to find in the real world. Experiment with classic delays, echoes, and reverbs.

Run your signal through some of the most coveted overdrives and distortions. Try out dynamic pitch transposition or dive-bomb effects. Choose from all your favorite choruses, flangers, tremolos, and other must-have modulation boxes.

Or turn up the funk with vintage and modern wahs or an octaver. The Pedalboard interface makes it easy to reorder and swap your pedals and to creatively route your signal for thousands of combinations and virtually unlimited sounds. Lay down an amazing bass track with dead-on models of three vintage and modern bass amps and cabinets. To get the perfect tone, switch between two types of input channels. Swap out cabinets and amps. Position one of three mics on different speaker cones.

Or blend between amp and DI box signals, just like in the studio. You can also use graphic or parametric EQs to fit the bass in your mix.
