Developed as a simple MIDI sequencer, Logic Pro has become one of the most used DAWs around the world. The DAW was created by a company called Emagic in 1993. In 2002 Apple acquired Emagic and since than Logic Pro is only available for Mac.
With Logic Pro it is possible to record, edit and mix audio and MIDI tracks. The layout can be separated in two windows (Mix and Edit) but it is also possible wo work in one window and have an overview over all operation.
In contrast to its big opponent Pro Tools, Apples Logic Pro comes with a lot of pre-installed plug-ins, virtual instruments and audio effects.
Logic Pro can record and edit audio tracks with a sample rate up to 192 kHz and a bit rate of 16 or 24. It is possible to record up to 255 audio channels and 99 extra MIDI channels in stereo, 5.1, 6.1 and 7.1 surround sound.
The newest version is Logic X, which was released in 2013. Since then, Logic runs in 64- bit mode and does no longer support 32-bit-plug-ins. Logic X is available in the App Store for 199,90€.
