Apple has announced that it has begun shipping Logic Express 7, the next major release of its music composition and production software.
With new Apple Loops support, software instruments and high-quality effect plug-ins, Logic Express 7 allows musicians to create, record, edit, and mix music. Logic Express 7 can open songs from GarageBand™, Apple’s consumer music creation software, making it ideal for consumers seeking to step up to a more advanced application with a studio-style mixer, movie scoring capabilities, and the ability to edit and print performances using music notation.
GarageBand Jam Packs, including the new Remix Tools and Rhythm Section packs, provide additional professional quality loops and instruments for Logic Express 7 for $99. Projects and skills learned in Logic Express 7 are directly transferable to Logic Pro 7, Apple’s professional music creation and audio production software, offering users a smooth transition to high-end professional audio production.
“Logic Pro 7 is a big hit with pro audio customers and reviewers who are saying it’s a must have upgrade and the biggest release of Logic ever,” said Rob Schoeben, Apple’s vice president of Applications Marketing. “We’re now shipping Logic Express 7, a streamlined and affordable version of Logic for education customers and advanced hobbyists who want to create and produce music like a pro for the unbeatable price of $299.”
