Product Overview


Logic Pro X 10.2.1 includes far more changes than its humble number increase implies, and Eli Krantzberg returns to take you through all of its enhancements and changes as well as creative ways to use them!

Eli begins with a video showing how to access one of the major enhancements of this update, the new multithreading functionality for live tracks. This allows you to distribute the CPU load of Logic tracks more efficiently than ever before,

After that, Eli demonstrates the new bounce and export features, and the new tool enhancements, followed by how to access the full Flex Pitch feature set right in the tracks area.

Eli then reveals how to use the new Metronome and Click settings along with the new beat mapping algorithm, and how to use the Automatic Lane Set in the Step Editor, which will generate unique note and controller lanes on the fly as they are used in a region making MIDI editing faster than ever.

After that, Eli moves onto the tweaks to the Piano Roll editor and Catch behavior, then demonstrates the new Drum Machine Designer behavior. Next, he delves into enhancements to the Plug-In Manager and the various little tweaks to make using the Score Editor a more pleasant experience, thanks to new display settings and entry methods.

The next three videos all focus on plug-in updates. The new GUI and controls for many of the delay and distortion plug-ins are covered, and in the following video, the new GUI and controls for the metering, dynamics, and filter plug-ins. Finally, the changes to Alchemy get their own video. The series ends with a grab bag of minor changes to the GUI in general.

Logic Pro X 10.2.1 Update Explained® is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Extremely Helpful Although I have been a Logic user since the Emagic days, I've toyed with the idea of switching to another DAW especially since that DAW's recent updates improved ease of process and workflow execution. However, the recent Logic Pro X updates have provided many, and in some cases, more of the same process and workflow execution improvements. Eli's tutorials have been extremely helpful in deep diving how best to integrate those improvements into my workflow, otherwise, I may have overlooked them in favor of continuing with old work habits. Please Keep Them Coming!!!
