"Logic Pro gives creatives everything they need to write, produce, and mix a great song, and our latest features take that creativity to a whole new level," said Brent Chiu-Watson, Apple's senior director of Apps Worldwide Product Marketing. "Logic Pro's new AI-backed updates, combined with the unparalleled performance of iPad, Mac, and M-series Apple silicon, provide creative pros with the best music creation experience in the industry."

Session Players: A Personalized AI-Driven Backing Band

Session Players offer groundbreaking experiences for creators by providing a personal, AI-driven backing band that responds directly to feedback. 1 Drummer took the music creation industry by storm when it debuted as one of the world's first generative musicians more than a decade ago. Today, it gets even better with key improvements and the addition of a new virtual Bass Player and Keyboard Player. Session Players augment the live-playing experience while ensuring artists maintain full agency during any phase of their music-making process.

Bass Player was trained in collaboration with today's best bass players using advanced AI and sampling technologies. Users can choose from eight different Bass Players and guide their performance with controls for complexity and intensity, while leveraging advanced parameters for slides, mutes, dead notes, and pickup hits. Bass Player can jam along with chord progressions, or users can choose from 100 Bass Player loops to draw new inspiration. With Chord Track, users can define and edit the chord progressions to a song, and the virtual Bass Player will follow along perfectly. Plus, with Studio Bass plug-in, users gain access to six new, meticulously recorded instruments, from acoustic to electric — all inspired by the sounds of today's most popular bass tones and genres.

With Keyboard Player, users can choose from four different styles, designed in cooperation with top studio musicians and made to accompany a wide variety of music genres. Keyboard Player can play everything from simple block chords to chord voicing with extended harmony — with nearly endless variations. Like Bass Player, Chord Track adds and edits the chord progression of the song, so Keyboard Player follows along. Using Studio Piano plug-in, users can select additional sound-shaping options, with the ability to adjust three mic positions, pedal noise, key noise, release samples, and sympathetic resonance.

Stem Splitter: Recover Great Recordings

Most musicians perform their best without the pressure of a formal studio session. These moments are often found in Voice Memos recordings, an old demo cassette tape, or are captured from a live show. Listening back, these recordings can reveal magical performances that are nearly impossible to re-create, making them lost to time. Now, with Stem Splitter, an artist can recover moments of inspiration from any audio file and separate nearly any mixed audio recording into four distinct parts: Drums, Bass, Vocals, and Other instruments, right on the device. 2 With these tracks separated, it's easy to apply effects, add new parts, or change the mix. Powered by AI and M-series Apple silicon, Stem Splitter is lightning fast.

ChromaGlow: Dial in the Perfect Tone

ChromaGlow models the sounds produced by a blend of the world's most revered studio hardware by leveraging AI and the power of M-series Apple silicon. 3 Users can dial in the perfect tone with five different saturation styles to add ultrarealistic warmth, presence, and punch to any track. They can also choose from modern clean sounds, nostalgic vintage warmth, or more extreme styles that can be shaped and molded to taste.

Powered by iPad and Mac

Since its introduction last year, Logic Pro for iPad has seen rapid adoption from creatives. Designed from the ground up to take full advantage of touch, Logic Pro transforms iPad into almost any instrument imaginable, and thanks to the portable design of iPad, it becomes a complete studio experience on the go. With the power and performance of Apple silicon, musicians can complete complex multitrack projects, create custom software instrument sounds, leverage a full-featured professional mixer, and explore the app's vast collection of effects plug-ins.

Working between iPad and Mac is easy with project round-tripping, allowing users to make music while on the go and continue perfecting their project when back in the studio.
