Apple today introduced Logic Pro 7 and Logic Express 7, the next major releases of its professional music creation and audio production software applications. Logic Pro 7 includes new software instruments such as Sculpture, a component-modeling based synthesizer; UltraBeat, an innovative and powerful drum machine; and new plug-ins including Guitar Amp Pro, a full-featured guitar amplifier simulator. Along with over 100 workflow enhancements, new mastering plug-ins and support for Apple Loops, Logic Pro 7 debuts distributed audio processing, a new technology which allows audio pros to tap into a virtually unlimited number of Macs to expand available Digital Signal Processing (DSP) power. Logic Pro 7 carries a suggested retail price of US$999 ($299 upgrade). Logic Express 7 will be available in October for a suggested retail price of $299.
