Logic Pro X is a professional recording studio for producing music. It contains a complete set of tools to write, record, edit, and mix music on your Mac.

Packed with instruments, effects and samples

Specifically, there are over one thousand different built-in instruments or samples including synths, vintage keyboards, a drum machine and sampler. In addition, there are over a hunfred effects including reverbs, delays, EQs, dynamics, amps and stompboxes. In total, there are over 1500 sampled instruments or effects to choose plus 3,600 Apple Loops in different genres to give you a base to build from. If you're a Garageband fan, Logic Pro X is also integrated with GarageBand meaning you can import projects into it instantly. The latest version has been enhanced with a companion iPad app, Virtual Drummer (a drummer that intelligently plays along to your compositions) and Flex Pitch which provides integrated pitch editing.

Very resource hungry

Logic Pro X is an all round monster of an application. You need at least 5GB of space to download it plus there are an extra 35GB of in-app downloads available. In addition to this, you'll need at least 4GB of RAM for Logic Pro X to run smoothly. However, most Macs post 2011 should be able to handle this easily. Overall usability of Logic Pro X is excellent too. The latest version has been given a revamped interface which is a definite improvement on previous versions making it more user friendly.

One of the best music creation packages for Mac

Logic Pro X remains one of the best musical production studios available for Mac. It offers all the pro features you'd expect in such a package but remains relatively user friendly.
