Lógica Takes Over the World Música

Quando a Apple comprou a Lógica da Emagic em julho de 2002, o mundo de áudio tomou um grande fôlego e perguntou o que iria acontecer a seguir. Até essa altura, a linha da Apple Creative Software Pro incluiu apenas Final Cut Pro e DVD Studio Pro ... duas aplicações surpreendentes, de fato. Mas pouco sabíamos na época que a Apple tinha planos para transformar o Mac em cada plataforma sonho artistas.

Antes de a Apple comprou Logic, Emagic foi nada mais do que um jogador pouco no mundo de produção de áudio. Pro Tools foi a indústria defacto padrão DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) e se você trabalhou no mundo da música, em qualquer tipo de nível grave, você certamente usado Pro Tools em seu estúdio. Era de se esperar, pois só o Pro Tools (na época) poderia oferecer o poder de processamento necessários para mastigar através de um projeto multitrack grande com toneladas de efeitos DSP adicionados a cada pista, tornando-o o melhor software de gravação de música.

A razão Pro Tools gozam de tal vantagem competitiva uma na época era devido à aceleração de hardware que Digi Design (o fabricante original do Pro Tools antes de adquiri-lo Avid) forçou a compra, a fim de executar seu software. Estes cartões de hardware contido núcleos de processamento extra que fez todo o trabalho pesado quando você aplicou reverbs, compressão, EQ, e assim por diante. Mas todo esse poder de processamento teve um preço ... um preço sério ... por vezes dezenas de milhares de dólares.

E este era o lugar onde a Apple viu uma oportunidade. A Apple sabia que o poder das CPUs internas usados ​​em seus computadores foi criado para aumentar dramaticamente. Eles também sabiam clientes preferem aproveitar o poder do computador host e um DAW relativamente barato (Logic) para fazer música, em vez de comprar extra, e muito caro hardware externo, para fazer exatamente a mesma coisa. E porque a lógica era apenas para rodar no Mac, Apple, também sabia que a compra da Logic Emagic traria toda uma nova geração de produtores para sua plataforma, o que teria o resultado de que lhes permite vender computadores mais. Foi uma vitória situação / win-...

Desde 2002 eu tenho notado uma progressão constante no mundo da música para a utilização de Lógica. Quase todos os estúdios do mundo agora oferece Logic e Pro Tools em suas salas de gravação e mixagem. Muitos têm substituído o Pro Tools al juntos. Fora do factor preço, as pessoas gostam Logic para o potencial criativo que oferece. Lógica tem superiores de roteamento de áudio e funções de edição MIDI. Existem dezenas de instrumentos virtuais e efeitos DSP construído na direita (tornando-o um dos mais versáteis "studio in a box" aplicações de software no mercado hoje), e com a arquitetura de unidade de áudio empregados por Logic, os fabricantes de plugins terceiro partido pode projetar efeitos e instrumentos que seamlessly plug em suas faixas para aumentar o poder do software.

For many producers today, it's a no brainer ... they grab a mac and a copy of Logic, and they are ready to go! Logic is taking veer the music production world ...Best music recording software, what do you think?

Without doubt Martin, I agree with you. Logic is the way forward on the Mac for recording & producing music. It's amazing how the price has been slashed since Apple took over. I remember back in the Logic 5 days to purchase Logic and all the plugins would cost in the region of £1200 GBP! Now, with so much more content, many more plugins, amazing features it's available for under £400 GBP.

As CPUs in Macs become more and more powerful, applications like Logic and Live will surely keep growing their user base, while I expect Pro Tools to become more and more affordable too.

Avid has to do something with Pro Tools to keep up. Their booth at NAMM was a shadow of it's former glory ... just a few pods and some tables to talk business at. No flashy presentations ... no big stage. And interestingly no Digi Design. Avid laid off a huge amount of staff last fall ... that's always a sign of things to come.

I definitely agree with you both about Logic 9 being the top dog right now, but then again, Logic (and Reason) are the only sequencers that I'm fluent in (I ditched Reason after I became fluent in Logic). I have a pretty solid opinion about why I use Logic Studio as opposed to Pro Tools 8. Mainly because Logic and Pro-Tools are constantly paired against each other. I'm not nearly as clear as to why I use Logic 9 as opposed to other sequencers like Digital Performer 7 or Cubase 5. I'd be very interested to hear what either of you have to say. How do the other DAWS compare with Logic 9? What does Logic do better then them, and in what ways might the other DAWS have slight advantages over Logic 9?

I bleed Logic, so I'm not planning on switching platforms. I am, however, very curious hear your 2¢ on the matter.

@ Eric, there are many similarities and differences between Logic and the competition. Let's choose Cubase first. Cubase has some great features and plugins in version 5... but it doesn't have an 'Environment'... This is a bog thing for me and performance of Cubase on Mac isn't as good as Logic.

Digital Performer 7. I'm not hugely versed in DP7. Again no environment style area is a killer blow for me. It's apparently very good for scoring movies but the interface never got me going. Also, for some bizarre reason when I first got Logic back in version 5 DP7 was big in the states but not very popular here in the UK.

Basically, Logic allows for a very very configurable workflow that suits my needs. Also, I just love Logic... I don't ge that feeling with other DAWs... I like them and appreciate them... but not the big L word ;-)

Having said that, there are features in Cubase 5 and Live that I like...

WOW, I just logged on tonight and I see a big fresh update to MacProVideo.com. Martin, you've been a busy man creating these articles for the new blog and your a great writer not to mention a great instructor. It's an amazing progression when you think about it. Logic is superior in so many ways. The sound sculpting synths and the built in EFX are extremely valuable. Logic is 64 bit and still accommodates 32 bit user plug ins. I went to NAMM this year and EVERYONE of any serious caliber was running logic. Melodyne is probably one of the most powerful softwares for audio around and of course, they were demoing and running on logic. I use a good number of plugins and frankly, Logic is so powerful, I am only using a few. you don't need a lot of plug ins unless your very specific in your needs which would be outside of logic. This website and the tutorials here along with the great forum support have taught me so much in such a short time, I am already working on my level two certification with Apple and the book looks like a printed review of what I have already learned with MacProVideo.com. I actually learned more with this companies training and to think I was completely ignorant to logic only 8 short months ago.

Apple is a dominate cultural force in todays society and Logic is so powerful, it's like handing over the keys to a serious professional studio for $500. Apple products are superior and the fact that they offer some of the smoothest running computers with the fastest and most powerful computing systems allows Logic to run completely in a native environment without external parts. That is simply amazing. Pro Tools cannot survive with a dominate force like Apple providing better and better product and software at these low prices. Lets see, $10K- $15K USD for a pro Tools HD set up ( the cheap one) or $500 for Logic that can outperform it?

Pro tools says, Nope you can't do that if you try something that is not conventional where as Logic says, " Lets try it?" You tell me.

Hi Victor, I'm glad to know the vids are helping! And even happier to know you're getting up to speed on Logic quickly ... :) ... I used to write the courseware for Logic for Apple, and IMHO these videos are a far better and quicker way to learn.

Great work over at vintageamps.com ... I love what you're doing there Victor!!
