Apple Logic Studio - Multitrack Digital Audio/MIDI Recorder/Editor Software with Virtual Instruments and Sound Library - Intel or PowerPC Mac (USED)

Apple Logic Studio - Multitrack Digital Audio/MIDI Recorder/Editor Software with Virtual Instruments and Sound Library - Intel or PowerPC Mac (USED)

Logic Studio from Apple turns either an Intel- or PowerPC-based Mac into a professional digital audio workstation, and provides the ultimate synthesis of digital audio recording, signal processing, MIDI sequencing and notation.

Logic Studio itself contains multiple applications and utilities. These include Logic Pro 8, MainStage, Soundtrack Pro 2, Studio Instruments and Effects, a five volume Studio Sound Library, along with several production utilities. Additionally, the previous XSKey protection system is dispensed with in favor of a simple serial number.

Logic Pro has been long admired by many musicians for its comprehensive collection of tools. Now Logic Studio defies logic (pun intended) by providing more for less. The less is the drastic cost reduction of the software bundle, while simultaneously adding more features and applications, with nothing removed from the previous version.

Product Features:

Logic Pro 8

  • Universal application designed to run natively on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs
  • Provides multi-track recording, precision editing, professional mixing with broad compatibility
  • Streamlined, single-window workspace interface with retractable panes, customizable toolbar, shortcut menus, built-in browsers, and dual channel strips
  • Simplified setup with 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
  • Quick Swipe comping dramatically streamlines the process of comping tracks. Rather than cutting, moving and muting regions, the user simply clicks and drags to select the best sections of each take. This creates a perfectly seamless comp, complete with transition-smoothing crossfades
  • Additional audio editing features include "snap-to-transient" and the ability to visually time stretch or compress an audio region directly in the Arrange area. The user is also able to fine-tune the intersection of two regions by using the Junction tool to simultaneously resize two adjacent regions
  • Offers end-to-end surround capabilities, allowing the user to record, edit, mix and encode projects in surround up to 7.1
  • Audio resolution up to 24-bit/192kHz with high-end POW-r dithering algorithm


  • Application that makes it easy to use preferred software instruments and effects in live performance situations and offering a wide selection of templates designed for different instruments and performance styles
  • Includes a stunning 3D interface created for the stage, providing just the information needed for a live show. Attractive, easy-to-read graphics are designed to deliver key information from a distance, regardless of the lighting conditions
  • Offers keyboard players additional flexibility in combining and playing sounds through keyboard layers and splits
  • Makes it easy to set up performance hardware and control all aspects of the live show, with virtual onscreen controls that link to the hardware knobs, faders and buttons in minutes. Also offers seamless support for all USB- and MIDI-equipped keyboards, control surfaces, foot pedals, drum pads and other controllers
  • Provides stability under even the most demanding conditions

Soundtrack Pro 2

  • Convenient and powerful software for advanced audio editing as well as creating soundtracks for film and video
  • Includes dialogue and restoration tools
  • Intuitive multi-track environment is combined with the Waveform Editor in a single-window interface that streamlines the editing process
  • 24-channel files for efficient editing of mono, stereo, surround and other multichannel files
  • Spectrum view provides a visual representation of audio based on frequency, with amplitude revealed through color intensity. Selecting portions of the audio frequency with pinpoint precision allows for editing them without affecting other frequencies
  • Multi-point spotting display makes it easy to synchronize sound effects and dialogue to specific events in the video
  • Includes professional audio effect plug-ins along with an extensive library of Foley, sound effects, and music beds
  • "Lift and Stamp" tool quickly copies a set of effects or EQ characteristics from one clip to apply them to another clip

  • Vintage Instruments deliver fully modeled simulations of vintage keyboards, including classic organs, clavs and electric pianos
  • Synth Instruments can produce everything from beautiful synthesizer beds to driving bass lines, with an array of FM, subtractive and analog-modeled synthesizers

Studio Effects

  • Eighty professional effect plug-ins
  • Includes delays, dynamics, convolution reverb, EQs, mastering tools and amplifier modelling to name a few. Many plug-ins provide surround sound processing

Studio Sound Library
