Hm. I don't buy it. At least not yet. If Final Cut X hadn't been a complete rewrite, then maybe. But I'm thinking the next version of Logic is taking its time due to the nature of the deep changes. Even if the team had been sacked, doesn't mean resources couldn't have been reorganized closer to Apple's home. I think I remember seeing some new patent filings from Apple for audio manipulation in Logic...

Shoddy journalism. One of the 'sources' is just a quote from another source, none of them are confirmed, and by the writer's own admission there's shedloads of evidence to the contrary.

I wonder if these Apple rumour-bloggers use their Macs for anything other than blogging Apple rumours sometimes...

The sales/product manager teams, responsible for package design and boxed product, pushing boxed product into stores and so on, have been thinned down, simply due to the nature of Apple shifting away from physical product and onto the App Store.

The development team are just as strong as ever, and with some interesting acquisitions over the past year, particularly the Redmatica acquisition, show that Apple are just as committed to pro audio as ever.

We had a Logic update just a few weeks ago, and I'm confident we'll get a major new version when it's ready. Just like Logic 9. And 8. And 7. And so on...

Ok, so on the back of Desmond's post, what do people here think some of the major features will be in the next version? Sure, bugs to be fixed or small details to be righted are on my list too, but we all want shiny new functions. What do you think?

What would we *like* to see, or what do we think will be in it?

Actually, I'd be interested in both aspects. Maybe someone has a revolutionary angle for often used functions... :D

I always thought that there's a gap to fill between GB and Logic but that's another topic.

I'm not using daws for a living but I'm a serious enough user who use Logic on a day by day basis and for what I do, I find Logic a bit too complicated and a bit too MIDI oriented ( I never use the Environnement, for example) and I find GB is too, well, "toy'ish"

Logic make me feel as I'm using a software that is more or less a collection of different old and new pieces glued together rather than an "atomic" software, so to speak.

Let's clean up that big puzzle, make it more user friendly, more customizable and add more power and flexibility to the audio editing and I'll be happy!

And finally, Apple is always imitated. So we'll probably see new features in the next Logic version that the competition doesn't have. Don't forget: Apple always innovate 8-)

I agree on both points: as a rather 'newer' adopter of Logic (2008), I do notice this fragmentation, although I don't necessarily find it inhibits my workflow too much. But yes, a more unified 'feel' wouldn't hurt.

Audio editing facilities: good point. I would love to be able to do more manipulation, especially pitch, within the arrange window or a better fleshed out editor. Also, one function I miss is destructive application of effects plugins.

But for heaven's sake, let's NOT take away any of the wonderful MIDI functionality!
