Official Logic Pro X Update 10.4.5 features confirmed by Apple
We speculated on the Logic Pro X update being 10.5, but it seems they’ve made it 10.4.5 although with a huge feature list, befitting of a jump to 10.5 in our opinion.
Apple recently teased an upcoming update to their flagship digital audio workstation, Logic Pro X, at the WWDC 2019 convention.
They left a large amount of information in the dark and focused on a major overhaul of the GUI and the compatibility with their new Apple Mac Pro desktop computers – as that was the highlight of the event.
Well, the Logic Pro X update to 10.4.5 is officially here and Apple have announced the official list of new features, bug-fixes and enhancements.
At the top of the list is a feature announced at the conference, and that’s the huge increase in maximum track capabilities.
You now have the ability to create up to 1000 instrument channels and 1000 audio channels and more. Including all send/returns and other channels, the theoretical limit is 16000 tracks in a project – that’s mental.
Logic Pro X 10.4.5 features a new De-Esser 2 plugin that greatly increases the usability of the existing plugin. They’ve redesigned it to work on a lot more than just vocals.
Logic Pro X 10.4.5 has a new dynamic plugin load feature, allowing for much quicker project load times because the software automatically detects which channels are actually needed, due to audio or MIDI data being present on those channels.
This is great for those users who have big templates, but don’t use all the instruments at a given moment.
They’ve also added various workflow improvements such as the ability to create your own default layouts for the mixer amongst others.
Also new is are more advanced settings to the MIDI clock capabilities; now you can set up time offsets and delay compensation.
Another big feature is the fact that freezing tracks now releases all the plugins from your computer’s resources, offering a much more fluid workflow in larger projects.
Apple has also fixed various issues which caused previous versions to quit unexpectedly.
