Apple Adds GarageBand iPad Support to Logic

| Product News

Apple released Logic 9.1.4 Tuesday, an update to the professional digital audio workstation (DAW) that adds in support for importing projects created in GarageBand for iPad. While that’s the only feature listed in Software Update, the patch notes online list a variety of bug fixes, performance enhancements, and other stability improvements.

The update is a 201MB download through Software Update.

Those patch notes in full:

Compatibility

  • Logic can now open songs created by GarageBand for iPad.

Performance and Stability

  • Logic now provides more specific messaging when playback is stopped because of hard drive performance issues.
  • Resolves an issue in which Logic sometimes performed very slowly after a project that was saved without assets was consolidated.
  • Logic no longer quits unexpectedly when copying, pasting, or swapping voices between slots in Ultrabeat.

64-bit Mode

  • Resolves an issue in 64-bit mode in which a generic interface for some 32-bit plug-ins was displayed.

Automation

  • Resolves an issue in which moving a region to a different Arrange track assigned to the same channel strip could cause automation to be deleted.
    Drag-copy of automation curves now works as expected on grouped tracks.
  • Moving an automation node that lies between two other nodes of the same value to the left or right no longer causes it to decrease by -0.1 db in value.
  • Resolves an issue introduced in Logic 9.1 in which performing Undo after using the “Move Visible Track Automation to Region” command would delete the automation.

Audio Editing

  • Resolves an issue in which performing Undo after creating an alias for a region would shorten the region in No Overlap mode.
  • Audio Regions that contain slashes in the name can now be successfully merged using the Glue Tool or Merge command.
  • Quantization of audio regions that have stretched or compressed and contain tempo information now works reliably.
  • Quantize and Q-Strength now work properly on regions created by exporting a Comp from a Take Folder.
  • Resolves an issue where lengthening an audio region could sometimes cause the audio to unexpectedly stretch.
  • Performing Undo after flattening Takes on a group of flexed tracks now works as expected.
  • Takes no longer sometimes display as soloed when their parent Take folder is disclosed but not selected.
  • Resolves an issue in which moving a take region with Quick Swipe Comping disabled sometimes did not move the corresponding take region(s) in tracks within the same Edit Group.
  • Fixes an issue in which dividing a take region that had been created by merging several take regions together could cause the area to the right of the edit to disappear.
  • Resolves an issue in which moving a take region with Quick Swipe Comping disabled sometimes did not move the corresponding take region(s) in tracks within the same Edit Group.
  • Fixes an issue in which dividing a take region that had been created by merging several take regions together could cause the area to the right of the edit to disappear.
  • Resolves an issue in which importing a Take folder into a project with a matching track could cause existing takes to be removed from Take folders in the original track.

Control Surface Support

  • Resolves an issue introduced in Logic 9.1.2 in which pickup mode for generic control surfaces did not work as expected.

General

  • Resolves an issue in which the key commands Next Screenset and Previous Screenset were reversed.
  • If the Startup Action preference is set to “Ask,” it is again possible to open a project by dragging it onto the Logic icon while the Startup window is open.
  • The default region quantize setting is now maintained after importing channel strips from another project.
