Logic Pro And Final Cut Pro Updated With New AI Features And More

Alongside a raft of new iPads and accessories, Apple took the opportunity during today’s Let Loose event to announce updated versions of Logic Pro and Final Cut Pro for iPad and Mac.

The new updates were announced as part of Apple’s unveiling of the new high-speed M4 OLED iPad Pro, but the updated apps will work on other devices as well.

Logic Pro for iPad 2 and Logic Pro for Mac

Apple announced the new update to Logic Pro today, saying that the Mac and iPad updates will be available starting Monday, May 13. There are tons of improvements to the apps, with Apple saying that they deliver “breakthrough professional experiences for songwriting, beat-making, producing, and mixing.”

Powered by artificial intelligence, the new Logic Pro introduces incredible studio assistant features that augment the music-making process and provide artists help right when they need it — all while ensuring they maintain full creative control. These features include Session Players, which expand the popular Drummer capabilities in Logic Pro to include a new Bass Player and Keyboard Player; Stem Splitter, to extract and work with individual parts of a single audio recording; and ChromaGlow, to instantly add warmth to tracks.

Logic Pro for Mac 11 will be a free update for existing users and $199.99 for everyone else. Those who prefer to use their iPad can get Logic Pro for iPad 2 for free for existing users via the App Store. Otherwise, it’s available for $4.99 per month or $49 for the year.

Final Cut Pro for iPad 2 and Final Cut Pro for Mac 10.8

Apple announced a big update to its video editing app for both the iPad and Mac, saying that it takes full advantage of the new M4 iPad Pro to “take creativity to the next level.”

Final Cut Pro for iPad 2 transforms iPad into a multicam production studio with Live Multicam, giving users the power to speed up their shoot by allowing them to connect and preview up to four cameras all at once, all in one place. To support Live Multicam, Final Cut Camera — an all-new video capture app — comes to iPhone and iPad, letting creators wirelessly connect and remotely direct each video angle with powerful pro controls. Final Cut Camera also works as a standalone professional video capture app on iPhone and iPad. External project support gives users the flexibility to edit projects directly from an external drive, leveraging the fast Thunderbolt connection of iPad Pro. Editing and finishing a project with Final Cut Pro on the new iPad Pro with the M4 chip is incredible, enabling users to color grade, apply multiple effects, and render graphically intense timelines even faster. Final Cut Pro for iPad 2 has even more customizable content for editing and creating unique projects, and leverages the advanced features of the all-new Apple Pencil Pro such as barrel roll and squeeze for Live Drawing.

Final Cut Pro for Mac 10.8 is a free update for existing users and $299.99 for new users, while a free 90-day trial is available. Those who use the iPad will be able to download the new update for free if they are existing users. For everyone else, it’s $4.99 per month or $49 per year.
