Logic Pro 10.4.5 – powerful update from Apple

Posted on: Monday 1st of July 2019

Apple has announced a v10.4.5 software update for Logic Pro X, bringing the brand’s flagship DAW up to speed with the power on offer from the newly-announced 2019 Mac Pro computer. Making full use of the Mac Pro hardware, Logic Pro X 10.4.5 will now support up to 56 processing threads, and according to Apple will be able to run up to five times the number of real-time plug-ins compared to the previous generation Mac Pro. Logic Pro X 10.4.5 increases the available track and channel count.

No longer limited to 256 stereo audio and aux tracks, you’ll now be able pack the DAW with 1,000 stereo audio channel strips, software instrument channel strips, auxiliary channel strips and external MIDI tracks. You’ll also now have access to 12 sends per channel strip (compared to eight previously).

Tools to help navigate large sessions have been introduced: shift-clicking a send command will now trigger the destination to flash three times, and large projects will now launch much more quickly thanks to dynamic plug-in loading. With this function activated, any existing project you load will be immediately analysed by Logic to determine which are the critical tracks needed for playback. Logic will only load the plug-ins required for full playback, enabling you to progress to playback and editing more quickly. The other plug-ins are only loaded as needed, so they aren’t an unnecessary drain on system resources. Apple says that “users can also expect improved responsiveness of the Mixer and Event List when working with large sessions, and projects with numerous Flex Time edits and tempo changes perform more efficiently than ever”.

If you have Logic Pro X already, the upgrade is free – you just need to update your software to take advantage. Otherwise, you can buy the DAW from the App Store for $199 / £199 / AU$319.
