New in Logic Express 8

Logic Express 8, Apple’s professional music production application, provides
musicians with the powerful, easy-to-use tools they need to write, record, edit, and mix. It features an interface that has been redesigned for fast, intuitive control, with all the key functions organized in a unified workspace. Time-saving recording and editing tools make Logic Express 8 perfectly suited for everything from a scratch recording to a symphonic 24-channel recording.

New features in Logic Express 8 include:

• Next-generation interface
• Simplified setup
• Effortless multitake recording
• Revolutionary Quick Swipe comping
• Powerful audio editing features
• Network-based save and share
• New instruments from Logic Studio
• New effects from Logic Studio

Next-Generation Interface

A new workspace features a single-window design with retractable panes, customizable
toolbar, shortcut menus, built-in browsers, and dual channel strips. This streamlined
layout eliminates clutter and lets you focus on your music.

Consolidated Arrange window

The Arrange window consolidates edit and browser windows. You can record multiple takes; cut, move, or stretch audio with sample accuracy; apply channel strip settings; automate a group fade; or drop chords onto your lead sheet—all from one central location, without managing multiple windows.

The Arrange window lets you selectively display three additional areas:

• Editing, horizontally tiled below the Arrange area; used for the Mixer, Sample Editor, Score Editor, Piano Roll Editor, and Hyper Editor
• Media or Lists, vertically tiled to the right of the Arrange (and editing) area; used for media browsers and list-based editors
• Inspector, vertically tiled to the left of the Arrange (and editing) area; used to display region and track parameters as well as the new dual channel strips for the selected track

Built-in browsers

Built-in media browsers give you intuitive, rapid access to your content without opening additional windows or leaving the workspace. The Media area includes tabs for four media browsers, including the Loop Browser and the Audio Bin.

Two additional browsers are new to Logic Express 8:

• Library Browser, for channel strip settings, plug-in settings, EXS instruments, and all possible MIDI destinations

• File Browser, including Spotlight search, for accessing any Logic-related file on your system or on any connected media volume—without going out to the Finder

Dual channel strips

The Inspector window features dual channel strips that provide streamlined access to all of the channel strips related to the selected track. The left channel strip lets you monitor and control the output and other settings for the current track. The right channel strip varies based on your selection in the left channel strip; click any Send or Output slot on the left to display the destination channel strip on the right. This feature allows you to access all of the channel strips used by a given track without opening the Mixer.

Optimized Mixer views

Two new options let you easily see the signal flow routing in the Mixer.

In the Arrange view, you can choose a setting—Add Signal Flow Channel Strips—to see not only the channel strips assigned to tracks, but also the auxiliaries and outputs used as send or routing destinations for each track.

In the new Single view, you see just the channel strip for the selected track, along with the auxiliaries and outputs used as send or routing destinations for that track. Focusing on the signal flow of one track at a time allows you to mix with greater efficiency and control.

Simplified Setup

Logic Express 8 lets you start making music right away, with production-ready templates, one-step track setup, dynamic channel strip creation, and seamless integration of ReWire-compatible applications such as Ableton Live and Propellerhead Reason.

Production-ready templates

Start making music fast by choosing from a variety of templates designed for different music styles—such as electronic, hip-hop, R&B, rock, and songwriter—and professional production scenarios ranging from multitrack stereo production to stereo mastering. You can easily modify and save templates or create your own.

One-step track setup
Logic Express 8 allows you to create and configure multiple audio, instrument, or external MIDI tracks from a single, simple setup window.

Dynamic channel strip creation

Logic Express 8 streamlines recording and mixing by automatically creating channel strips for you as you work. Anytime you add a bus send to a channel strip, Logic Express creates a new auxiliary channel strip as needed, using that bus as its source. Similarly, if you add a multi-output software instrument, you can create preconfigured auxiliary channel strips with a single click.

Streamlined ReWire support

Integrating ReWire-compatible applications with Logic Express is dramatically streamlined. You can now manage all setup and configuration in the Arrange window, with no need to open the Environment or create special “ReWire Objects.”

Open Ableton Live or Propellerhead Reason directly in Logic Express, then select the instrument you want to play from the list that dynamically appears in the Browser. To monitor or process audio coming from a ReWire application, just select the outputs as the input source for any auxiliary channel.

Effortless Multitake Recording

Logic Express 8 offers a simple, flexible approach to multitake recording. When you record over existing material, your takes are automatically stored in a take folder. Expand your take folder at any time to see a graphical display of all your takes for easy auditioning and editing. You can move a take folder anywhere in your arrangement and edit it just as you would any other region.

Revolutionary Quick Swipe Comping

Quick Swipe comping dramatically streamlines the process of comping tracks. Rather than cutting, moving, and muting regions, all you have to do is click and drag to select the best sections of each take. This creates a perfectly seamless comp, complete with transition-smoothing crossfades.

Easily change your comp selections by clicking alternative sections in any take. You can save multiple comps and switch among them to pick the one you like best.

Powerful Audio Editing Features

New editing features in the Arrange window allow you to work with greater speed and precision, without opening separate windows.

Snap-to-transient selection

Snap-to-transient selection lets you extend marquee selection borders to the next or previous transient. This feature is particularly useful for fast, efficient drum editing and sound replacement. Extend or reduce the length of the marquee selection by snapping the start or end point of the marquee to transients in audio regions, note on or note off positions in MIDI regions, or region start or end positions.

Graphically time stretch or compress audio

Logic Express allows you to visually time stretch or compress an audio region directly in the Arrange area—without changing its pitch. Simply Option-drag the end point of the region. You can choose one of the time compression algorithms provided with Logic Express or use third-party options such as Serato Pitch ‘n Time or iZotope Radius.

Precise editing in the Arrange window

You can now edit waveforms directly in the Arrange window with the same precision previously available only in the Sample Editor. This is especially useful for maintaining phase alignment when making micro-adjustments to live recorded tracks.
Simultaneous edits with the Junction tool
Fine-tune the intersection of two regions by using the Junction tool to simultaneously resize two adjacent regions. Just use the Junction pointer and drag to the left or right; both regions will be resized, with no gap between them.

Network-Based Save and Share

Back up personal channel strip settings, plug-in settings, and key commands to your.Mac account for easy access from any computer connected to the Internet. You can also select favorite settings to share across a local or Internet-based network or through your .Mac Public folder.

New Instruments from Logic Studio

Logic Express 8 features 36 high-quality software instruments—including Ultrabeat, ES1, ES2, EXS24 Sampler, and more than a dozen GarageBand instruments.

New instruments from Logic Studio include:
• Ultrabeat
• ES2 synthesizer
• EXS24 Sampler


Use the tone-shaping features in Ultrabeat to sculpt unique sounds from 25 drum voices, with new drum kits featuring more than 1000 new sounds. Full View drum grid editing and step automation give you more power than ever.

Use the drum grid editor to dial in the perfect groove with swing and accent controls, then trigger any of the 24 patterns live or drag them to the Arrange window in Logic Express for further editing. Ultrabeat provides everything you need to create original beats from combinations of synthesized and sampled sounds.

Ultrabeat features:

New sounds. Ultrabeat offers more than 50 new drum kits featuring 400 new drum patterns and over 1000 new synthesized, sampled, and hybrid drum sounds. You can import EXS drum kits directly into the program for even more creative options.

Full View drum grid editor. The Full View drum grid editing feature in Ultrabeat lets you see and edit all of the patterns for 25 drum voices simultaneously.

• Step automation. Step automation allows you to shape the characteristics of the sound of each voice over time. Precisely adjust key parameters for each event in the sequence.

Built-in sound-shaping features. A rich palette of effects, filters, LFOs, and EQs lets you edit voices with extreme precision, from slight alterations of tonal character to radical changes. The multimode filter offers four different 12- or 24-dB filter types, providing a broad range of sound-shaping options.

• Multiple outputs. Ultrabeat is a multi-output instrument that provides up to 16 outputs. Route individual outputs to separate auxiliary channels for discrete processing of each drum voice.


With the ES2 synthesizer, you can draw from a broad range of sounds, a comprehensive selection of synthesis techniques, and powerful modulation options to create radical sounds or nuanced pads. The Macro Only mode simplifies sound design by letting you manipulate multiple related parameters with just a few basic knobs.

EXS24 Sampler

Choose from a wide range of EXS instruments and quickly build sampled instruments and sample libraries using the integrated, redesigned EXS Editor. The EXS24 Sampler lets you quickly incorporate sample-based sounds into your productions. Featuring sample-accurate timing, a robust synthesizer section, and support for sampled instruments of near-limitless size, the EXS24 Sampler also includes 16 individual outputs for discrete voice processing. Wide-ranging sample library support includes Akai, GigaSampler, SampleCell II, SoundFont2, and REX2.

The EXS24 Sampler includes features for:

• Editing and playing. The EXS Editor boasts an intuitive interface that lets you view and graphically edit your sampled instruments. Tight integration between the EXS Editor and the EXS24 Sampler means fast transitions between editing and playback, so you can build instruments quickly with instant playback as you work.
• Shaping your samples. Use built-in LFOs and envelopes to modulate virtually any parameter in the EXS24 Sampler. A separate multimode filter provides adjustable slopes, variable filter overdrive, and a fatness circuit that ensures excellent low- frequency response.

New Effects from Logic Studio

With more than 70 professional effects, Logic Express gives you a rich palette of options for creating unique sounds—including a number of high-quality effect plug-ins from Logic Studio.

New effects from Logic Studio include:

• Guitar Amp Pro
• Ringshifter
• Pitch Correction

Guitar Amp Pro
Guitar Amp Pro lets you play your guitar through faithful re-creations of classic amplifiers and speaker cabinets.

Guitar Amp Pro features:

• Amp modeling. Guitar Amp Pro features 11 amp models, 15 speaker cabinets, microphone controls, and an effects section for constructing the perfect guitar tone. And you can access more than 200 brand-new guitar channel strip settings made from scratch by world-famous musicians and sound designers.

• Cabinets and springs. Guitar Amp Pro offers a wide range of legendary guitar amplifier sounds and a variety of speaker cabinets, which can be freely modified and combined. Effects such as vibrato, tremolo, and spring reverb faithfully model the hardware effects found in classic amps.

• Other uses. Guitar Amp Pro allows you to use the amp, speaker, or microphone section independently. Fatten up your synth line with an overdriven UK 30W combo amp, or get creative with vocals by running them through a 1×10 speaker cabinet.


The Ringshifter effect plug-in lets you combine a ring modulator with a frequency shifter effect. Both effects were popular during the 1970s and are being used in new ways by today’s musicians.
The ring modulator modulates the amplitude of the input signal, using either the internal oscillator or a side chain signal. It produces a metallic or clangorous sound quality. The ring modulator was used extensively on jazz rock and fusion records in the early ‘70s.
The frequency shifter alters the frequency relationship of the original harmonics. It produces sounds ranging from sweet and spacious phasing effects to strange robotic timbres.

Pitch Correction
The Pitch Correction plug-in allows you to correct the pitch of audio tracks. The plug-in accelerates and slows down the playback speed so that the input signal always matches the correct note pitch. You can use any scale to define a pitch quantization grid.
You can also use Pitch Correction to create special effects—a particularly interesting approach with drum tracks.
