New Version of Logic is Coming, Confirms Apple Pro Audio Exec; Nothing to See Here? [Opinion]

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Mon 3 Dec 2012 11:54 pm

Apple tends to avoid commenting outside its famously-watertight public relations apparatus, but executives sometimes get personal. That appears to be the case for Xander Soren, Director of Product Marketing (and a key player in their pro audio apps). Xander has been in my experience an outspoken and articulate individual. Here, he dispels notions that Apple is backing off of Logic development:

Nicholas, thanks for your email. As the lead for our music creation apps, I always want to hear what our users are thinking. I want to assure you the team is still in place and hard at work on the next version of Logic Pro.

Apple ‘Hard at Work’ on Next Version of Logic Pro [MacRumors]

Yes, leave it to the site with “rumors” in its title to go with evidence, while other major tech outlets go crazy over the rumor. Synthtopia did an excellent – and amusing – round-up of those reports, as well as a well-thought-out argument against the rumors:
Did The Mayans Really Predict The Demise Of Apple’s Logic Pro?

Jim Dalrymple also discounted the rumor on The Loop.

Ironically, you could find some truth to this rumor if you want to get pedantic about the English language.

“Decimated” comes from a Latin origin meaning removal of a “tenth,” referring to not the complete destruction of your personnel, but some portion of, presumably, dead weight. (See any dictionary, or this Wikipedia entry.) I have also heard reports of some personnel changes related to Apple audio, though nothing suggesting any fundamental changes. That may mean that, yes, Apple reorganized and people over-interpreted the results. If they took one person off a ten-person team, they might have even “decimated” someone.

I’m also, frankly, sick of the Final Cut Pro comparisons. Final Cut Pro in its previous version relied on deprecated QuickTime frameworks, lacked a modern code base, lacked 64-bit support – the list goes on. So, Apple never “dropped” features from Final Cut Pro X, as Ars Technica writes, reporting on the Logic rumors. Apple decided to do a ground-up rewrite of their flagship video editor. They’ve gradually re-implemented lost features, and in at least some cases created better, more usable, faster-performing functionality. You may still not like the result, but that’s your prerogative – it’s a new app. It’s just unreasonable to suggest Apple was somehow trying to spite the people who buy the tool.

Logic, by contrast, is already modernized and ready for the OS. Apple has lagged between releases, no question. But let’s judge the results whenever a new release arrives. And, for now, you should make your choice of DAW based on what’s available today. If Logic is the most productive tool, then by all means, carry on. “What’s available today” is a whole heck of a lot of choices, from Reaper to Ableton Live to Cubase. If Logic isn’t competing, then move on.

Speaking of companies that began in Germany founded by guys named Gerhard who make major music production tools that had been in a lag in their product release cadence since around 2009 (phew), Ableton (Gerhard Behles) answered users with Ableton Live 9 this fall. So, now we wait for Apple’s pro audio team (Dr. Gerhard Lengeling) to let us know what they’ve been doing. And users I think deserve to be skeptical about that until they see something. It just means you should also be skeptical about these sorts of rumors unless you have some solid evidence.

Moving on… for now…

WATCH: Popular Culture Offers No Solace (Or Does He?) In “Dandelion” Video

You know you're in for a dark, weird ride when a music video opens with an anonymous hand lighting a black cigarette. Moments later, we see the man responsible, Henry Mowgli Gillespie, sporting a sweatshirt that reads "NO PRAYER OR DANDELION" while standing in a busy crosswalk.

Gillespie, the Austin-based musician best known as Popular Culture, released his freshman album, Episode, last summer via Sparrowsongs Music. To purchase Gillespie's debut, on vinyl or CD, head over to Sparrowsongs

Track two, "Dandelion," has now been transformed into an epic video, full of Gillespie's deadpan expression, perfectly chilling baritone vocals, and quirky, upbeat electronic elements that make this one truly unforgettable pop song.

iOS Music Apps, in Harmony: Audiobus Details, Easy App Finding, Dec 10 Launch [Gallery]

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Mon 3 Dec 2012 7:59 pm

Audiobus is all about connecting apps, which requires apps with built-in support. So, one surprising and encouraging feature – Audiobus will make it easy to discover which apps are compatible. (See also: notifications, below.)

Use a great effect app to process another app. Record your favorite app in another tool. Make apps work together, and maximize the potential of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. At last, Audiobus promises the ability to take the constellation of apps appearing on Apple mobiles and use them together, easily. We’ve known why this was cool, and we knew it was coming – see our in-depth preview and explanation of workflow..

Now, we know when, and to which apps. Audiobus’ developers have revealed next Monday December 10 as the official launch date. Also, we’re seeing some new screens – prepared for CDM – that show that it’ll be really easy to discover which apps work, or even to sign up for notifications on when apps are available.

All you need to run Audiobus:

  • The US$9.99 Audiobus app. (Given the massive development effort behind this thing, that seems a good way to support the creators – and the app itself is rather beautiful.)
  • An iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch running iOS 5.0 or later. (The new iPod touch, for instance, looks like a great handheld music machine for those who don’t want a phone contract.)
  • Compatible apps (a lot of your favorite apps will just add support in updates).

The heart of Audiobus: routing different apps allows you to combine sources, effects, and recording/hosts. All images courtesy Audiobus.

Audiobus has also revealed launch apps:

Funkbox (input slot)
JamUp (effects slot)
JamUp Pro (effects slot)
Loopy (input and output slot)
Loopy HD (input and output slot)
MultiTrack DAW (output slot)
NLog MIDI Synth (input, effects and output slot)
NLog Synth PRO(input, effects and output slot)
Rebirth for iPad (input slot)
SoundPrism Pro (input slot)
Sunrizer Synth for iPad (input slot)

Thumbjam and Drumjam are awaiting Apple App Review; Moog Animoog and Wavemachine Labs Auria support is coming, awaiting completed implementation.

Support is ramping up gradually. 700 people entered to become developers, but only 25 will get the SDK in the next round. (CDM will be looking at the SDK to give users and developers alike a preview.)

One reason: Audiobus’ creators want to make sure that these apps get feedback and that developers are approved by App Review. They say things will go public in the coming months.

More videos and details are coming from Audiobus – and hopefully from us here, too. In the meantime, here’s a look at the Audiobus app. See you next Monday.

Audiobus Launch on December 10th [Audiobus Tumblr]

Developers can notify you when apps become compatible – crucial given that Apple has to approve new apps, which Audiobus’ creators say is typically the longest delay, not development.

WATCH: Jonny Pierce Showcases Solo Somber Pop Via “I Didn’t Realise”

Jonny Pierce, frontman of the beloved Brooklyn outfit, The Drums, has a knack for delivering honest lyrics via catchy pop jams. The Drum's sophomore LP, Portamento, was the most recent example of this, until last week, when Pierce revealed his latest track.

"I Didn't Realise" is the first single off Pierce's personal, debut solo album, which he also recorded and produced. This album will drop in early 2013, but for now, check out the three-and-a-half minute black and white video for "I Didn't Realise."

It's full of glitchy and gloomy pop, Pierce grooving outside of brick apartment buildings, and the distressing and inexplicable line "what do you do when everything is not enough?"
