Soundtrack Might Hint At Logic’s Future

In the absence of a new version of Logic Pro it is fun to speculate.

Like many other Logic users I’ve been looking through the features of Apple’s newly released audio editing application, Soundtrack Pro 2 (part of the new Final Cut Studio package for Film and Video work), for any hint of how new versions of Logic might look and work. There are promising signs indeed!

Take a look at the short demo films and there is a clear picture of what Logic’s new workflows, plugins and editing windows might look like. The audio edit point, crossfade and noise reduction features look like vast improvements over what we have in Logic 7. The stamp tool (similar to what we have in Arpeture) looks like a real time saver. The actions list is a vast improvement over the undo feature in Logic 7 and seems to underscore a new way of handling processes in general, maybe with easier automation of tasks? Also, the plugins look clean and a bit more intuitive. Finally, the 5.1 mix tool looks wonderful!

But the big change is the configuration of windows, especially the arrange and track setup. Much cleaner, easier to read and in a way, more like Live (which is no bad thing at all!). Of course the new version of Logic, or whatever it is called will have it’s own feel and features but if Soundtrack Pro 2 is any hint at all, it will at least look much better, be easier to navigate and have some useful straight out of the box workflow improvements.
