The Logic Pros: How to control anything in Logic...

The Logic Pros is a new regular series exploring all of the most interesting gadgets and software for making music on your Mac/iOS devices. If there is any gear you would like us to take a closer hands-on look at, let us know in the comments section below or shoot us an email.

In this week’s edition of The Logic Pros, we will be looking at how to map all those fun looking sliders, switches, buttons and encoders on our controllers to various functions inside of Logic Pro X. In many case, we get home with our MIDI controller, plug it in, and it just works. The keys/pads function just as they should, but the plethora of other dials and faders available generally won’t do much, unless you tell them to.

We will be covering the basics of how to get our MIDI keyboard/controller mapped to just about any parameter in our session, along with...

Woz To Be Immortalized In Wax

mikejuk writes: Having already made wax figures of Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg, the Madame Tussauds museum recently put out a call for nominations for who should be next, with the stipulation that the nominees have a connection with the Bay Area. The shortlist was then whittled down to ten, including Google co-founder Larry Page, Tesla's Elon Musk, Marc Benioff of Salesforce, Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg and Marissa Mayer of Yahoo. Any of them would look great as wax figures, but outcome of the public vote was a clear winner — Steve Wozniak. Once his statue is complete Woz will be on display next to Steve Jobs in San Francisco and an ideal setting for a selfie.

Swift: Apple's Biggest Achievement For Coders

GordonShure.com writes: Despite its publicity and hype being rather quiet by Apple standards, the Swift programming language has attracted praise since its release last year. Swift is one of the few Apple products that represent a departure from the hardware-led Steve Jobs approach to the business. If this year's survey of coders by Stack Overflow is anything to go by, it looks as if the language might have potential to really shake things up in a landscape which has been little changed since the 1990s. Might the days of Apple programmers relying upon objective C be numbered?

Popular podcast app Instacast now discontinued as...

Popular podcasting app Instacast for iOS and Mac is shutting down as the founders can no longer fund it or any of Vemedio’s other projects.

In an email sent to paid members, Martin Hering says that all of Vemedio’s products will be ‘discontinued’, with Instacast being the most well known app affected by this. The company says they will keep the servers up for as long as possible so current users will not be left with non-functional apps immediately.

Hering seems to imply that profitability issues are the cause as the email plainly states “I ran out of funds to keep the project going”. The company’s Twitter account is now private and vemedio.com now redirects...

The clear winner from the models fielded wasn't from Apple of Samsung (Samsung's entrants came much lower down, in fact), but from Microsoft: the i5-equipped Surface Pro 3, with a Geekbench score of 5069.; second place goes to the Apple iPad Air 2, with 4046. The Nexus 9 rated third, with 3537. One model on the list that U.S. buyers may not be familiar with is the Tesco Hudl 2, a bargain tablet which Trusted Reviews seems quite taken by.

If you find the Chrome browser to be a bit too power-hungry for your liking, Google has some good news for you. According to Google software engineer Peter Kasting, the Chrome team is hard at work to make the browser more efficient, particularly on the Mac.

In a post published to Google+, Kasting outlined several areas of browser performance the Chrome team has been working on improving. For example, background tab rendering is now set at a lower priority, which means that other, more pressing tasks will get processor resources ahead of a webpage you may not look at right away anyway. And Kasting says the team has managed to reduce processor use up to 70 percent for certain tasks on Chrome for Mac.

Tech Jobs and Apple: Every Bit As "Fun" As...

theodp writes: On the eve of Apple's big Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple CEO Tim Cook said the lack of diversity in tech is 'our fault' — 'our' meaning the whole tech community. "I think in general we haven't done enough to reach out and show young women that it's cool to do it [tech] and how much fun it can be," Cook explained. Indeed, the WWDC scholarship winners shooting selfies with Cook at the San Francisco Four Seasons to celebrate their iPhone apps and other WWDC attendees looked to be having as much fun as, well, Pinocchio at Pleasure Island. But, as the NY Times recently pointed out, Cook can be guilty of overlooking inconvenient truths. Which here is that most young women (and men) wouldn't find it 'cool' or 'fun' to live with 8,000 co-workers in factory dormitories where they can be roused out of bed in the middle of the night by Apple for an emergency 12-hour shift to fit glass screens into beveled iPhone frames, although that too conjures up a scene from...

“Hi, this is our eleven year old cat Gijs. He is currently enjoying the new found cat video’s on YouTube, featuring birds on a feeder. Gijs is hooked on these movies since a few days, doesn’t want to stop watching them. He is using our old iPad 2 in an original Pad & Quill case. His fellow cat Joep doesn’t mind these video’s. He’s not bothered, and keeps on sleeping (that’s why he doesn’t show up on these photos).”

According to a new report from Variety, Beats was developing a line of Sonos-like speakers before it was acquired by Apple. When the Apple acquisition occurred, development of the connected speakers was stopped, according to the report. Some of the engineers that were working on the project were moved to other teams, while others have since left the company.

The line of speakers that Beats had planned was originally slated to launch before the 2014 holiday season. While the company already offers several Bluetooth-based speakers, the company wanted to develop a new line that combined Bluetooth, WiFi, and NFC technologies to allow for more seamless playback. Beats was planning a large, living room speaker that was reportedly going to be priced...

A new report in Variety claims that Beats Electronics was working on a Wi-Fi-connected home speaker that could be used to stream music directly from the Internet. This new Beats speaker was intended as part of the larger home entertainment strategy involving Apple Music, the new streaming service that Tim Cook announced earlier this week at WWDC. But Apple killed the product before its expected release date: the 2014 holiday season. Without the new Beats speaker,...

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it’s difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money).

I don’t know what to think of Jurassic World (the film) quite yet—though I’m sure I’ll have a better idea this weekend. On one hand, I want to feel that amazing sense of wonder imparted by the original film, which I first saw as a kid. On the other hand, the wooden acting, rough CG, and trained velociraptors of the trailer raise red flags—and I can’t forget the crummy Jurassic Park III. I’m hopeful, but admittedly not that optimistic.

AWT News Update: On hiatus until July 8

hiatus |hīˈātəs| noun (pl. hiatuses) [ usu. in sing. ] a pause or gap in a sequence, series, or process: there was a brief hiatus in the war with France.

The AWT team is quite small, so when one of us takes a vacation, has kid (or elderly parent) issues, or gets sick, it means that something has to give. For the next three weeks, that something is the AWT News Update podcast.

The Dash Sleeve comes in basic black, but with two trims -- black and copper. The trim is applied to a slender line along one side, as well as on the brand label. The outside of the Dash is made of ballistic nylon, a material that holds up to years of abuse without showing wear.

Apple appears ready to allow third-party solid state drives (SSDs) to use TRIM, an OS-level tool for reclaiming unused space, as a new report claims that an at-your-own risk TRIM tool will debut in either OS X Yosemite 10.10.4 or OS X El Capitan 10.11. TRIM keeps SSDs running quickly as they get filled up with and purged of content, automatically reallocating deleted file space to be used by new files.

According to the report, MacRumors forum users experimenting with El Capitan’s new Rootless security system have discovered a new built-in tool called “Trimforce,” which force-enables TRIM for SSDs even if they weren’t “validated for data integrity while using that functionality.” The tool’s language suggests that the feature can be enabled at the user’s own risk: “By using this tool to enable TRIM, you agree that Apple is not liable for any consequences that may result, including but not limited...

The company included a tool for developers in the latest version of iOS that supports ad-blocking extensions in Safari. That means you’ll be able to install an ad-blocker in the App Store just like you can install ad-blocking extensions in Safari on your Mac.

What this means for you: Mobile ads eat up data that could be used for other, more important activities, like checking your email or streaming music. Being able to block annoying ads, some of which are awful App Store redirects, will be a huge improvement for the Safari...

Well-known developers Steve Troughton-Smith, Saurik and Adam Bell have managed to hack the Apple Watch on watchOS 2 to run truly native apps on the device. Although Apple is advertising native apps with watchOS 2, it isn’t as ‘native’ as some developers wanted or expected. The logic code now runs on the watch, but raw access to the user interface is still not allowed on watchOS 2.

This means frameworks like UIKit cannot be used to draw truly custom UI. Instead developers must rely on the same techniques employed with current WatchKit apps that revolve around image sequences to create more interesting effects.

In the demo, video embedded below, the team managed to get a...

Leaked document shows Apple Music to pay industry...

When Apple Music hits, it’ll pay artists about the industry standard.

A leaked document shared by Digital Music News shows that with Apple charging between US$9.99 and US$14.99 per month for its upcoming on-demand Apple Music service, with 58 percent of its subscription revenues going to record labels. For every US$9.99 Apple collects from subscribers in the United States, it will pay out US$5.80 to labels. Additionally, Apple pays approximately 12 percent to publishers and/or songwriters, leaving the company with somewhere around 30 percent of the revenue from the Apple Music service.

The figures come on the heels of...

Users express concern over watchOS downgrade issues...

Upgrading software is easy.

It’s downgrading that’s the hard part.

A number of deleted posts from Apple’s support forums and active discussions elsewhere online highlight a growing concern for Apple Watch users; specifically, the inability to downgrade from a newer version of watchOS to an older version. The issue, which first became apparent when users discovered that watchOS 1.0.1’s heart rate monitoring was less frequent than in watchOS 1.0, is that the Apple Watch apparently lacks a user-accessible recovery or DFU (device firmware update) mode. While there has been a spike in downgrade-related complaints since Apple released the beta...

Opinion: Will the launch of Apple Music mark the...

Spotify is almost synonymous with streaming music. It may not quite have managed the Google trick of becoming a verb, but it’s pretty much the default way to stream music.

Spotify has 75M active users and, despite doubts in many quarters about its ability to convert free users to paid subscribers, it has succeeded there too. The company announced this week that it now has more than 20M paid subscribers, half of them added in the past 12 months, at a rate of one every three seconds.

It seems hard to imagine that any new entrant into the market, even one with Apple’s clout, could steal its crown. And yet early market leaders often look unassailable – until they are left behind. Look at Nokia or BlackBerry. I wondered...

What to play this weekend: 13 Thieves

13 Thieves (free with in-app purchases) from Space Inch is a tile puzzle game in the tradition of Threes! and 2048. This time, the "tiles" are numbered thieves who would rob you of everything if given half the chance. 13 Thieves is a fun game with nice graphics, goofy sound effects and familiar yet still engaging game play. Here's our look at 13 Thieves.

Looks

It's a pretty cute game. Each numbered thief has its own look and personality, often greeting you with his or her own catchphrase. Actually, "catchphrase" is inaccurate. It's more of a "catch sound." Number four's drawn out "Helloooo" is my favorite.

My only complaint is the mission review screen. Tap the bullseye button to get a pop-up...

If so, you’ve just dated yourself (via screenochronology, natch), but you can re-energize those neurons for a few moments with Bryan Braun’s recreation of the core After Dark screensaver modules in CSS. Be sure to say hello to the fish as well.

Beware the Killer Robots


Russia's advanced military combat robot -- which has drawn alarmed comparisons to Hollywood's Terminator -- will be able to run and clear an obstacle course by late this year, according to reports that surfaced this week. That's just the latest news fueling the already-fiery debate over what to do about killer robots. Artificial intelligence and robotics experts must decide whether to support or oppose the development of lethal autonomous weapons systems, urged Stuart Russell, a UC Berkeley professor, in a recent paper.

iOS 9 To Have Ad Blocking Capabilities

An anonymous reader writes: iOS 9 will reportedly carry ad blocking capabilities for it's Safari browser when it is released later this year. The feature wasn't rolled out with the usual fanfare one might expect, and flew under the radar. ZDNet reports: "It's not immediately clear why the new ad-blocking privacy feature was included in iOS 9, due out later this year. After all, the iPhone and iPad maker has its own advertising network -- even if its success was limited (which is putting it nicely). What's clear is that allowing ad-blockers in iOS 9 could deliver a serious blow to Google, the biggest rival to Apple in the mobile space, because advertising remains a massive portion of the search giant's income."

Apple Music FAQ: The ins and outs of Apple's...

Apple singlehandedly turned the digital music marketplace on its head when it launched the iTunes Store in 2003, and now it’s going after the current hottest trend: Streaming media. Apple introduced this new service, Apple Music, during its annual Worldwide Developer’s Conference, bringing out the company’s big guns (record exec and Beats cofounder Jimmy Iovine, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software Eddy Cue, and hip hop star Drake) to show the world how Apple Music plans to compete with the likes of Spotify, Rdio, and Tidal.

So, will this replace iTunes? Can you listen to music offline? What about existing Beats subscriptions? We’ve got the answers to those questions and more in this guide to everything Apple Music. We’re still learning more—it doesn’t officially launch until June 30—so if you have any additional questions, let us know in the comments...

Twitter’s CEO Dick Costolo chooses to step down,...

Techcrunch:

After years of user-growth struggles, Twitter just announced that its CEO Dick Costolo has chosen to step down July 1, though he’ll remain on the board. Twitter co-founder and Square CEO Jack Dorsey will be the interim CEO.

Dorsey will continue to be Square’s CEO, but will fill in for Costolo until Twitter finds a replacement. Dorsey was previously Twitter’s CEO before being forced out and replaced by co-founder Ev Williams in 2008. Dorsey became Twitter’s executive chairman in 2011 when Costolo became CEO.

Chaos is never good for a publicly traded company and Twitter has certainly had many ups and downs during Costolo’s tenure. Many hope the next CEO, who ever he or she may be, will finally give the company a direction both users and Wall St can look forward to.

External Link: iOS Bug Could Lead to Stolen iCloud...

A bug in iOS 8.3 prevents Mail from stripping risky code from email messages. In a proof-of-concept attack, security researchers inserted code into email messages that displayed a fake iCloud login prompt. While this hasn’t appeared in the wild yet, there’s an easy way to tell if an Apple login dialog is real: press the Home button. The real dialog is modal, which means that pressing the Home button will do nothing until the dialog has been addressed.

Remember that crazy WWDC opening video? Apple just...

Apple did something out of the ordinary to open WWDC this year. Before CEO Tim Cook took the stage, the company played a bizarre opening video that showed a behind the scenes look at the opening number it had planned but that never came to fruition. Featuring Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader, the video seemingly pays homage to the popular 2014 hit film Birdman.

There are numerous references to culturally popular tech, including the iOS apps Monument Valley, Angry Birds, Tinder, Crossy Road, Evernote, Apple’s own Tips, Lyft, Goat Simulator, and a variety of other tech terms.

It’s a bizarre, wacky, and over the top video, but nevertheless Apple has now uploaded it to YouTube for anyone who missed the live stream of the keynote itself. You can check it out below and tell us what you think of it in the comments...

'Backstage' at WWDC: Apple posts the Bill...

Apple loves its dad jokes, especially when celebrities can get involved and lend an air of coolness. “Our products are cool, but we’re all nerds here,” seems to be the message, and there’s no better audience for that message than the Worldwide Developers Conference. Monday’s keynote kicked off with a video made expressly to delight the 5,000 developers, who laughed and hooted through the whole thing.

Starring Bill Hader of SNL fame, with an appearance by Danny Pudi of Community, the video is called “Backstage” and it’s pretty funny. If you were tapping your foot during the live stream hoping they’d just get on with it already, do yourself a favor and watch it again, for the lulz.

If you ever wanted to Twitter DM the entirety of War & Peace to a fellow Tolstoy enthusiast, you’ll soon be able to do it in fewer messages. 

On Wednesday Twitter announced that starting in July users will be able to send private direct messages to each other that are up to 10,000 characters long. The current limit is 140 characters, exactly the same as public tweets. Could this mean that public tweets might soon get overly verbose too? Not a chance, according to Twitter.

“You may be wondering what this means for the public side of Twitter. Nothing! Tweets will continue to be the 140 characters they are today,” wrote Sachin Agarwal, Twitter’s DM product manager.

Twitter announced today that it will be effectively removing the character limit on Direct Messages between users sent through the social network. Previously DMs shared the same character limit as tweets which cap out at 140 characters before being unable to be sent.

While not everyone is thrilled about the nature of direct messages changing from limited texts to longer form communication, the move should help Twitter position private direct messaging as a stronger competitor against Apple’s iMessage and Facebook’s Messenger and WhatsApp.

The change follows other recent enhancements to direct messages including the ability to embed and share tweets. The changes better position Twitter’s direct messaging feature if the social network ever...

Microsoft will phase out Patch Tuesday -- its monthly potpourri of software product fixes -- when it rolls out Windows 10, which could be a mixed bag for the operating system's security. Patches will be applied automatically as they're ready. That means users no longer will have to wait until the second Tuesday in the month to secure their systems from potentially troublesome vulnerabilities. However, there are a number of caveats to that scenario. First, the scheme applies only to Windows 10.

In our early days with Apple Watch, we drafted a wishlist of improvements we longed for Apple to make, and at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, the company announced that watchOS 2 would solve just about every problem we have with the first-gen version.
