Massive library. Powerful browser.
The expansive Alchemy library delivers diverse and inspiring sounds. Find sounds for any kind of music — from EDM to Hip Hop and a wide range of emerging styles. Easily pinpoint the right sound from over 3000 presets with the keyword browser. Select category, timbre, and articulation keywords to serve up the perfect set of useful sounds. Then organize your favorites with star ratings and custom keywords.
Easily explore and play with sounds. Click and drag on the Transform Pad to smoothly transition between eight sound variations. All sounds provide thoughtfully designed Performance Controls that you can customize to suit your creative needs. And you can automate controls to add intricate and compelling movement to any Alchemy track.
One monster of a synth.
Alchemy is a powerhouse synthesizer offering multiple types of synthesis in the same plug-in. Choose and combine up to four of the synth engines, which include additive, spectral, formant, granular, and virtual analog. Add a robust sampler that can import EXS24 instruments and your creative potential is limitless.
Master sound morphing.
Manipulate audio in powerful new ways with the unique collection of tools Alchemy provides. Analyze and resynthesize samples using the various synth engines. Create entirely new sounds by combining distinct elements from up to four different sources. Add a thunderclap to your snare. Let a songbird introduce color and shape to a string pad. Morph seamlessly between sounds at a deep, elemental level — from, say, a breakbeat to a crashing wave and then a handclap — just by moving the puck around the Morph Pad. Or use discrete controls to dial in the perfect blend of each element. Open up an entirely new sonic frontier and experience sounds you’ve never heard before.
Virtually limitless sound shaping.
Great-sounding filters and flexible modulation are key measures of a great synth. And Alchemy delivers on both. Sounds never stop evolving when you can modulate almost any parameter in so many ways. Choose from over 100 modulation sources, including a variety of LFOs, AHDSR and MSEG envelopes, and step sequencers. Sculpt sounds using 38 different filters in a variety of colors, from modeled analog to special effects. Whether you like classic synth tones overflowing with vintage character or more futuristic, spectral timbres, Alchemy filters ensure that you have plenty to love.
Built-in arpeggiation and effects.
Take sounds to another level with integrated arpeggiation and effects. Arpeggiate each of four sound sources independently, generating complex, multitimbral compositions from a single chord. Sweeten or transform your sounds by applying up to 16 effects — including convolution and algorithmic reverbs, modulation effects, stereo delay, compressors, EQ, and a range of distortions — to each sound source or the whole preset at once. There are so many ways to go. Unleash modulation on any of the effect or arpeggiator parameters in Alchemy and hear the difference.
Control Logic Pro X from any corner of your studio using your iPad Pro, iPad, or iPhone. The large, high‑resolution Retina display on iPad Pro enhances the experience of playing Touch Instruments, improves the functionality of the Mixer, and lets you access additional key command buttons. And using Logic Remote on iPhone gives you easy access to transport, navigation, mixing, and automation controls in a streamlined interface designed for a smaller screen.
It’s beat programming taken to a new level. Choose from 10 new beat creators with pro skills in cutting-edge styles including Tech House, Trap, Dubstep, and more. They follow your lead to dial in the groove you’re going for.
Drum Machine Designer.
Choose from awesome-sounding kits covering a range of electronic styles. Bend and shape the sound with the right controls always at your disposal. Mix, match, and swap out the kit pieces with hundreds of thumps, kicks, strikes, claps, and more. Then let your custom drum machine spark the creation of some fresh new beats.
Drum machine–style sequencing.
Press any note to generate a sequence with Note Repeat. Remove notes just as simply with Spot Erase. Easily change rate, note length, and velocity on the fly to create intricate rhythmic patterns, build drama, and create big drops.
Enhanced Piano Roll Editor.
The Piano Roll Editor gives you new ways to create and manipulate MIDI data. Add or subtract a series of notes in a single swipe with the new Brush Tool. Compress and expand a selection of notes with new graphic tools. See more in less space with the Collapse view and use the Drum Name view to spot those drum-hit notes with ease.
Your automated changes are now embedded within any region, so you can repeat or loop them with all those swirling, sweeping, twisting effect parameters going along for the ride.
More powerful Mixer.
Take total control over your mixes with pro studio console–style VCA faders. Quickly assign channels and automate their levels all from a single fader. And enjoy the freedom to view Track Stack channels in the Mixer, independent of the Tracks area.
New Relative and Trim modes let you ride a fader to fine-tune existing automation, just like on a professional mixing console. And synchronize the writing and editing of automation for multiple tracks using Track Groups.
Fades are now rendered in real time so projects load faster and fade files become a thing of the past. This change makes fades compatible with Flex Pitch and allows edits to fades to become audible without having to stop playback. The same technology is used to ensure click-free playback when cycling.
Customizable plug-in menus.
Sort and prioritize all Logic Pro X and third-party plug-ins with ease. Put your favorites at the top of the menu. And create custom categories to keep hundreds of plug-ins ready, right when you need them.
Apple Music. Connect with your fans like never before.
When you register as an artist with Apple Music, it’s easy to share what you’re up to with your fans through Connect. It eliminates the barriers between you and your audience, giving you the ability to quickly upload sneak peeks of what you’re working on directly from Logic Pro X. Get instant feedback and buzz going to tease full releases. Then enjoy the ripple effect.
Getting your music out there has never been easier. Now you can share projects and tracks with anyone near you using AirDrop, or use the new Mail Drop feature in OS X Yosemite.
