Six months after the release of Logic Pro X 10.1, Apple has launched the 10.2 update, bringing Alchemy and a host of other features to the popular DAW.
The highlight of the new update is the integration of the Alchemy sample manipulation synthesizer into the Logic Pro X software. The version of Alchemy included in the update represents a significant improvement to the previous 1.5 version that was distributed by Camel Audio. Featuring multiple synthesis engines and advanced morphing features as well as a 14 GB content library offering thousands of sounds of new sounds. The large content library also comes with an enhanced keyboard browser, which allows producers to find sounds quickly using descriptive keywords.
Users can also access performance controls that allow for the manipulation and crafting of new sounds without needing a full understanding of synthesis and sound design techniques. Outside of Alchemy, Logic Pro X users will also find support for Force Touch trackpads, custom track icons, 1,000 new Apple Loops from different genres, an expanded MIDI clock that improves sync compatibility with external MIDI devices, and multiple bug fixes and tweaks.
