Version 10.0.7
Review by spockstudio

quality and value - I have been using X since the day it was released, and this review is based on several hundred hours of use under varied professional studio conditions. Your mileage may vary. First off, it seems like a number of user posts complaints could be easily addressed through the simple 'help" bar. For others, there is the Mac Pro Video training videos. there are a lot of deep aspects of Pro X that you arent going to get by guessing or being lazy. Learn your tools. The program gets along well with outboard clocks and converters and the onboard instruments are suitable, but if you are using EWQL or NI (or Slate, Waves, etc), you'll stick with that stuff. In response to some users crash issues, any power user of any app (audio or non audio) which requires intense CPU use, whether mac or PC, programs crash from time to time. Save your work regularly. Its just good housekeeping. Its also well supported with 3rd party products. If you think something is better, use it, but you'll be back.

Version 10.0.7
Review by Drumman64

Love Logic X, Hate 10.0.7 - I loved switching from 9 to X. So many great features like fast track and the interface redesign helps me be more intuitive and working more efficiently. With the most recent update to 10.0.7 advertising it would take advantage of all 12 cores in my computer, I was excited. However, after using the thing for a couple of weeks, I have run into so many bugs it makes it hard to work. I cannot move a track without it glitching and crashing. The track literally jitters when I move it and when I move my mouse the track moves all over the screen. It then hangs for about 20 seconds and then crashes. Then it usually crashes 3 times when I try and open projects. Last night I tried to move a Logic plugin (Channel EQ) up one slot on the Channel Strip and Logic crashed. I can’t move tracks and I can’t move plugins. This makes it near impossible to work and get things done. I pray they fix this soon, I’ve already missed a few deadlines due to the constant crashing. Between crash and reopen I’m averaging an hour worth of downtime-completely a waste of time

Version 10.3.2
Review by Baller#25

Loops Shouldn’t be Altered - I have used Logic for quite a while and I see that Apple has decided to alter the loops that I most commonly use in my tracks. This is so frustrating. Is it just me, or does anybody else see this ‘behind the curtains’ move. I didn’t even notice until I started a new project. Most of the loops (that I like) seems to be slowed down for some reason. I don’t get it really. If Apple wants to alter their loops, they should just add them to the never ending list. That way everybody is happy. You feel me? I like that they added a bunch of new loops, but don’t change the past if it just works. Just add to it. I hope they change it soon.

Recent Update Causes App to Crash - Not much to say other than the application crashes EVERY time I open Logic Pro X on my 2017 MBP. This is not how I want my $200 to be used for. Just fix it please.

Version 10.3.2
Review by Ithgbh

Bad - Every time there’s an update, it gets worse. So many issues where to start. Keeps playing tracks that aren't even there after I move them, crashing etc. Logic remote keeps renaming my tracks unless i click on each individual track, only to do it again if I select one. As a professional engineer, it makes me look bad and spend extra time. Time to move on I believe.

Version 10.3.2
Review by VanHalen999

So glad I still have the previous version - I updated because of the public beta of High Sierra was causing LPX 10.3.1 to crash and this version still wouldn’t work until the next beta update. After I updated my computer and got Logic open, I see that there’s no automation and the playhead keeps disappearing. Sure the new sounds are nice, but it takes forever to save.
