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 10.5.1
Review by WB-40

DO NOT UPDATE TO 10.5 - I have never written a review in my life, but this is so bad I actually felt compelled to save someone the trouble. Do not update until they fix some of the bugs. I have been using Logic Pro for producing music full time for years and have never had issues like this. It is complete trash. I have been trying to get the application to open back up for an hour just to make one mix tweak, but all I get is "application not responding". Like I said, this is my full time job and this new update is completely messing up my workflow. I can't seem to get sh!? done. Shame on Apple for not testing longer and fixing some of the issues before ruining some people's work.

Version 10.5.1
Review by aReTaRd10102929

Logic is great. 10.5.1 is unacceptable - I've been a Logic user and lover since I started on version 7 back in 2006. The general trend has been one of advances and improvements with a few hiccups along the road and some bugs that took far too long to fix. Version 10.5.1 is a whole different story, however. It is causing plugin registration issues with many of my third party plugins, meaning I can't accurately listen back to old sessions, my templates are useless, and I'm unable to use many of my favorite plugins. I've had some luck manually reregistering some plugins, e.g. iZotope RX7 Standard and getting Logic to see them as registered, but it's been a huge hassel and I'm very glad I always save an old version in case something like this crops up. In a new version, I'm often unsurprised if some small feature gets buggy, but something as essential as 3rd party plugins loading and authorizing properly is a huge oversight. TLDR: Logic is great, but avoid 10.5.1 if you can

Version 10.5.1
Review by bob mane

Usual Apple - As always apple thinks we need to think differnt meaning think like there creative directors. They sit around some round table and come up with usless goofy features rather that digging in and making funtional stuff. I use Logic because it is cheap not great. Pro Tools smokes it on all accounts. Fix automation, I/O set up, time stamping, timeline and file mangmanet need HUGE overhauls.

Version 10.5.1
Review by stopBeingBadApple

Used to love - I used to love Logic Pro. Now I'm considering leaving Apple and getting Pro Tools. Logic is garbage. RIP. 1) In a project that is 2 minutes long with 25 tracks, freezing them took about 50 minutes. That makes no sense. I could listen to each track individually in that amount of time. This should definitely be happening faster. 2) I can no longer copy and paste audio files across projects. It glitches out. The files show up in the finder for the project, but they are not pasted, and I have to reedit them. 3) In a file with 25 tracks, a plugin on each, it often hits a point of no return. The GUI crashes. I had one time where I couldn't even deselect looping for playback. I can understand it crashing when trying to play too many tracks, but it freaks out just looking at them and becomes completely unusable. 4) Want to have a note on the first beat of a bar where there's a new time signature? Well, I hope you want that note sustained because Logic will make it that way. 5) Sometimes when I play things back after recording, they're out of time when I played them just fine. This probably sounds like I'm just bad at music. But this is a genuine problem. I suspect something is up with the clock. It's like it plays everything slower when I'm recording, and then when I listen back, having played in time, I'm now lagging. When will Apple stop releasing updates that break programs that previously functioned well? After Catalina, I thought about leaving. Now this. Am I really going to go back to PC and get Pro Tools? I guess it couldn't be worse than the "fun" I just had recording music today.

Version 10.5.1
Review by Kai The Epic

Great until the new Ableton-Like update - Written on Friday June 12, 2020: I have been a user of Logic Pro X since Logic Express 7. Logic has always been an AMAZING software with great capabilities, and the addition of a lot of functions have been really great for my production and creativity. That being said, ever since the very recent update with all of the push-button looping technology, I have been having a LOT of trouble with the program glitching when i try to do any sort of complex functions. It constantly crashes and freezes now, and I'm unable to open any plug-ins or VST's for editing anymore. Logic has been consistently great, but the recent crashing has been awful, and it's been specifically since this push-button loop update.
