Suggested March 2024 Logic Pros: What’s New In Ios & Mac Music Production This Week

This is the place to catch up on all the biggest product announcements, hardware, apps, synths, Logic/GarageBand instruments and so much more in the world of iOS/Mac music production. This week we have a new audio mangler from Audio Damage, major updates to Korg Gadget for Mac, the release of the latest Elektron drum machine and much more…

Audio Damage releases the new Grind audio mangler for Mac

Audio Damage is one of those sleeper companies (for some people anyway) that makes incredible virtual audio processing plug-ins unlike any other. Automaton, Kombinat and the incredible Replicant are just a few its amazing, and very affordable products. The company recently debuted its latest audio mangler known as Grind. Described as a “true powerhouse of audio warfare” it can handle everything from “subtle tube-style saturation to full-on mangled wavetable distortion”.

Grind consists of three main blocks: wavetable lookup, in to algorithmic saturation/distortion/, and finally to a multi-mode filter. The wavetable module uses the amplitude of the incoming signal to replace the sample with one from 15 different linearly-interpolated wavetables, chosen for their mangling potential. Window size and phase controls provide further tone-shaping possibilities. 

Grind is available now in all major formats for all major DAWs at $49

Korg drops major update for Gadget along with free light version

It was great news when Korg brought its quirky and powerful Gadget instrument platform over to the Mac. And now the company is offering a free intro version known as Gadget Le which comes with a trimmed down selection of Gadgets (“five standard gadgets and tracks.”). This is perfect for anyone interested in the instruments but want to give them a test run before dropping $199 on the full version.

The complete version of Gadget also received a pretty major update that is free to existing users:

Milpitas gadget added.

Preview sound of gadgets added.

Improved the display behavior when switching tracks.

Improved the MIDI channel for Darwin by enabling Omni reception.

Various other adjustments to improve stability and ease of use have been done.

Elektron Digitakt Drum Machine and Sampler Now Shipping!

The latest hardware gadget from Elektron, Digitakt, is now shipping and available for purchase. The $679 digital drum beast will soon be fully Overbridge compatible, which means it will work seamlessly with Logic Pro X (any major DAW) on the Mac. We already gave you a full rundown of how Overbridge works in our hands-on review of Elektron’s Analog Heat, and you can expect a full review of Digitakt as soon as the Mac integration is up and running!

The Logic Pros: A Look At Logic’s New Heavy Weight Sample Manipulation Synth Alchemy

In this week’s episode of The Logic Pros, we are putting a hold on hardware month for the Logic Pro X 10.2.0 update. Apple is back at it again with another incredibly substantial offering. After it acquired Camel Audio back in January, hopes were high that some of the company’s world-class production software would make its way to Logic and Garageband, and now it has:

While we aren’t getting all of Camel’s fantastic software lineup, an updated version of its flagship software synth Alchemy is now free to all Logic Pro X users. Previous to the Apple acquisition, Alchemy was $249 on its own and well revered among music producers. It, in my opinion (and many others), stands toe-to-toe with just about any of the heavy hitters out there, and we are now getting the full package (and then some) for free inside of Logic.

Known as a sample-manipulation synthesizer, Alchemy is capable of multiple synthesis and sampling types, along with a number of creative ways to blend the two. With Camel’s pedigree as a fantastic stand alone effects maker, and what seems like an endless number of ways to layer and transform sounds, Alchemy truly is a powerhouse instrument unlike anything Logic Pro X users have ever seen bundled in for free.

At its core, Alchemy is a 4-part sampler/synthesizer. Each of which can house a different sound entirely, separately routed to one of three multi-mode filters and the ability to be layered on top of each other. There are up to as many as 7 different synthesis/sampling types to play with/combine for each, including straight virtual-analog (wavetable), additive synthesis, formant shaping, and various sampling types: granular, spectral, and more. Along with the straight up sampling/subtractive-style synthesis options that rival just about anything out there, these more unique analysis options allow producers and musicians to get creative in ways you just don’t find very often.

As for the filter, there are 8+ Low, High and Band Pass options on top of a series of less traditional notch, formant, and ring-style types. The modulation matrix is just as fully featured as the filter with 7 sync-able multi-mode LFOs, 3 AHDSR envelopes, 2 multi-segment envelopes, a sequencer and up to as many as 15 different Mod maps. It isn’t hard to see why many musicians happily paid $250 for this thing.

We essentially have 3 main view modes for the UI: Browse, Simple and Advanced. Along the bottom of the easy-to-use Browser, you’ll find some of Alchemy’s macro controls (known as Perform), the Effects bank and and its 4-way Arpeggiator:

The Effects bank is filled with excellent sounding reverbs, delays, distortions, compressors and more, of which we can load up to 16 per patch. We are also seeing the return of what was already one of the best arpeggiators out there. There are 4 completely discreet Arpeggiators for each of the synth’s parts, each with various mode, pattern and timing controls, along with micro level editing on a note-by-note basis.

A few quick notes to keep in mind after downloading the new update:

Alchemy will appear in your list with a bunch of great sounds after downloading the new Logic update. But if you go up to the “Download Additional Content…” option in the Logic Pro X menu up top, you’ll find a few more. And by a few more I mean nearly 15GBs worth of free content, expanding Alchemy’s library to about 3,100 presets. Boom!

Those who were using Alchemy before Apple snatched it up, you can still use all your legacy presets. It looks just about everything from the Camel release is loading up inside Apple’s version. And lastly, while I’m still a fan of the aging, lightweight EXS 24 sampler, you’ll be able to get some more mileage out of its sampler instruments by loading them up inside of Alchemy’s sampling engines.

All-in-all, I can’t say I am overly surprised Camel’s work is starting to appear in LPX, but a full blown and fine-tuned version of Alchemy for free is pretty amazing. From the wavetable style options, plethora of filter types and what might be some of the most interesting and unique sample manipulation tools I have ever used, it’s hard to believe it’s in Logic for free now.

You can get a full break down of what the rest of the Logic Pro X 10.2 update had to offer here and Apple has some great audio examples up as part of the new Alchemy section of its site.

The Logic Pros: Automate Tedious Midi Edits Into A Single

I think it’s safe to say we all run into situations where we would like to have some sort of automated or batch editing feature for our MIDI data/performances. It could be selective velocity moves that allow us to move entire groups of MIDI notes (or just a selected portion of a performance, for example) to a specific velocity value. Or maybe we want to quickly tidy up the tails of notes so they are all of a certain length (for example an 1/8th note). We might want to create a velocity crescendo, double/half the speed of a performance or even humanize it (explained below). All of these things can be cumbersome tasks, even if we aren’t talking about a massive epic song worth of notes and events.

The window is essentially split int to two parts: The upper Conditions panel we use to tell Transform what notes/events we are looking to target up top…

…and then the bottom Operations panel where we tell it what we would like to do with them down below. To keep things simple and understandable for our purposes today, let’s take a look at a common example where Transform would come in handy: batch editing the velocity of notes in the Piano Roll. With this one example, we can learn the basics of MIDI Transform enabling us to put it to work in several different ways and for a series of different applications:

2. Select the notes on the Piano Roll editor you would like to transform. From here we can hit command + 9 to open MIDI Transform.

Note: Or head up to the “Functions” menu along the top of the Piano Roll window and scroll dow to MIDI Transform. 

Note: We can opt to highlight the notes we would like now or later, but for those getting started with MIDI Transform it is generally recommended to do it now to ease confusion. The “Select Only”, “Operate Only” and “Select and Operate” functions from within the Transform UI will get the trick done as well.

3. Hit the “Presets” menu along the top and select the “Fixed Velocity” option.

4. In the Conditions panel Logic has automatically selected MIDI notes for us in the Status panel and setup the fixed (“Fix”) velocity selector in the Operations panel. Now we can batch select the velocity of the notes we previously selected in the numerical pull down menu in the Operations panel.

5. Select a value and hit the “Operate Only” or “Select and Operate” option, and now all our desired notes are set to the same selected velocity.

Tip: For example, you may want to only select the bass notes, or left hand in a certain performance in order to get them at a certain velocity. Add a “Pitch” selection “Condition” by setting the top pull down menu in the Pitch conditions section to “<=” and the desired note in pitch selection menu directly below, in our case D1. Now only notes below D1 will be effected by the batch velocity change.

My synth lines don’t sound like a robot enough already. The same steps apply for trimming every selected note to the same length via the “Fixed Note Length” preset. Once the preset is loaded up simply type the desired length in the time pull down menu in the Operations panel. You’ll see a time divisions set at  0 0 1 0 by default, that represent bar, beat, division and tick. Typing in a length of 0 1 0 0, for example will set the length of every note to one bar. The division length is determined by your project settings, which can be set in transport bar, as seen here at 1/16th note:

You don’t honestly have to set every note in that crescendo manually. And again, the Crescendo preset will allow us to smoothly create velocity, pitch and more crescendos in our performances as seen here. Simply set the length (bars, beats, division, ticks) of the desired crescendo in the Position Condition panel and the range in the velocity Operation panel, as seen above.

Ok they are starting to sound too much like a robot. The Humanize preset can be used to randomize the position, velocity and pitch of our MIDI performance to create a more realistic or human feel to them. And the DoubleSpeed/Half-time presets can, well, lengthen or shorten our parts by a factor of two (be sure to provide enough empty space in your MIDI region for a performance that is about to be twice as long!). However, the new Time Handles feature in LPX might be an easier route. You can learn all about those in the 6 powerful new features you may have missed in Logic 10.1 episode of The Logic Pros.

Apple Iphone Se What’s New

Apple iPhone SE What’s New

Even though it has a dated appearance with a smaller 4.7-inch screen and large bezels, the 2023 iPhone SE has a lot to admire — especially if you adore a Touch ID fingerprint sensor and home button. So, how does it compare to the iPhone 13? Can this model compete with the flagship models that use the same processor? Let’s look at the features of the new iPhone SE and compare it to the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max from the iPhone 13 series.

What’s New In The iPhone SE (2024) And What’s Still The Same

The new iPhone SE looks just like the iPhone SE from 2023, which was similar to the iPhone 8 from 2023. It has a 4.7-inch Retina LCD display with 1334 x 750 resolution, thick bezels, and a glass back that permits Qi-compatible wireless charging. It’s also available in three colors (Midnight, Starlight, & Red).

Camera hardware is another remnant of the 2023 SE. The lenses and sensors are identical, however, the A15 allows a newer software version of computational photography with Smart HDR 4 thanks to its inclusion. When we evaluate the phone, we’ll see how big of a difference this makes in real-world use. But, in the meanwhile, it’s all starting to sound a little too familiar.

Highlights of iPhone SE 2023:-

The Apple iPhone SE 2023 retains the same tiny size and 4.7-inch screen as the 2023 model. The new iPhone SE sports a body that is nearly identical to the 2023 model, with the exception of the wide bezels on the front.

Apple’s A15 Bionic processor, which is also included in the iPhone 13 series, powers the iPhone SE 2023. The iPhone SE will be available in three storage capacities: 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.

Sub-6GHz 5G is supported by the iPhone SE 2023. Apple claims that the phone has increased battery life, which was not one of the previous iPhone SE’s strong points.

The iPhone SE has a single 12-megapixel rear camera and a 7-megapixel front-facing camera. However, owing to the A15 Bionic CPU, the phone adds certain software-based photographic upgrades. Deep Fusion and HDR 4 are two of them.

The IP67 designation for water resistance is maintained in the 2023 model of the iPhone SE, as it was in the 2023 model.

FaceID is not available on the iPhone SE. Touch ID sensor for biometric unlocking is included. Apple calls the phone’s front and back panel glass the “toughest glass in a smartphone,” and it’s the same as in the iPhone 13 series.

The Apple iPhone SE 2023 is available in the same three colors as the iPhone SE 2023: midnight (black), starlight (white), and Product Red.

New Features In Ios & Android

Our Verdict

It is too early to make a definitive judgment, but the old truths are likely to remain. If you want ultimate polish, and are prepared to sacrifice your freedom to shop for apps and media outside of Apple’s walls, iOS 9 is for you. It is a prison, but a beautiful, comfortable prison. Meanwhile on the Android side of the house the days when Google’s platform was hard to use are long gone. But it is probably still fair to say that iOS is a marginally more shallow learning curve for beginners. If you asked me to choose I would plump for Android, but it really is a personal choice. And Apple Pay being available is a big win for iOS 9. Let’s see what the Autumn brings.

Apple recently announced iOS 9, the next-generation of its iPhone and iPad operating system. iOS 9 will go head to head with Google’s Android M at the top of the Android  phones and tablets market, so we decided to compare and contrast the two leading mobile platforms, in their next-gen form. Eyes down for an iPhone vs Android face off, in our iOS 9 vs Android M comparison. We compare iOS 9 vs Android M for release date and compatibility, Apple Pay vs Android Pay, and new features in iOS 9 and Android M.

We now know definitively that both iOS 9 and Android M are in the works. What we don’t know is when exactly they will launch. But we can make some good guesses: iOS 9 will launch in ‘Fall 2024’, according to Apple. Apple wasn’t specific about the date because it doesn’t want to give away the date of the next iPhone and iPad launches which will likely be the same day. But expect a new operating system in September 2024.

Meanwhile Google at I/O 2024 unveiled an Android M Developer Preview, confirming the existence of the next flagship Android OS. The final version of Android M will launch with a new Nexus phone in October or November this year. But unlike iOS we won’t then see a rapid roll out to all compatible devices: Android M will first roll out to other Nexus devices, and within a few months to flagship phones and tablets made by third-party OEMs such as Samsung, LG and Sony.

Unless you are a Nexus guy, don’t expect to get Android M on your device until late 2024 or even early 2024. (See Android M release date.)

iOS 9 vs Android M comparison: betas

For the first time I can remember, Apple is running a public beta of its iOS update. You can try out the iOS 9 beta in a few months, but you can sign up now at chúng tôi Developers can download the first beta of iOS 9 immediately, however.

Similarly, if you really want to get your hands on Android M now then you can download the Android M Developer Preview, but only if you have a Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9 or Nexus Player. As with the iPhone equivalent, it should be said that developer preview software is really only for, er, developers. Expect bugs and frequent updates, as well as missing features and functions. Buyer beware! (See also: How to get Android M now.)

iOS 9 vs Android M comparison: compatibility

This is one of the fundamental differences between iPhone and Android. Because Apple makes both software and hardware it rolls out its new software in a quick and efficient manner. Thus every iPhone and iPad that now runs iOS 8 will be able to upgrade to iOS 9, the day it comes out. And unlike previous iOS updates Apple promises that this time around the update file won’t be as big as your iPhone’s available storage. Older iPhones won’t all get some features, though. (If your phone doesn’t have an NFC chip, you won’t be able to use Apple Pay, for instance.)

Android M’s compatibility will be more scattered. Because Google can make the software available to its OEM partners, but they are not forced to push the upgrade out to end users. So while Nexus devices are pretty much guaranteed an over the air (OTA) upgrade to Android M, those with phones made by other people have no guarantee. However, if you have a flagship phone from 2014 or 2024 it is most unlikely you won’t get the upgrade at some point.

iOS 9 vs Android M comparison: Apple Pay vs Android Pay

Both iOS 9 and Android M share one major new feature: NFC-enabled contactless payments. With Apple Pay and Android Pay you will be able to use your phone like a contactless credit or debit card. (Your wallet will now have a battery life, but at least you have to carry only one device.)

Apple Pay is first out of the blocks, due to hit the UK in July with support from eight major banks and retailers such as Costa, Boots, Waitrose and the London Underground. Apple Pay first launched in the US on 20 October 2014 and now it is coming here. This despite a new set of regulations from the European Union Council of Ministers that some thought could throw a spanner in the works. (These tighter regulations could require additional authorisation processes.)

Despite this Apple says that 70 percent of credit- and debit cards in the UK will be supported by Apple Pay at launch.  At WWDC 2024 it showed a graphic which name-checked all the major high street banks. In terms of retailers, the original list includes McDonalds, Lidl, M&S, Boots, Waitrose, Costa Coffee and more.

This is very much a score for Apple Pay, as there is no news as yet as to when Android Pay will make it to the UK. At present all Google has said is that Android Pay will be launching in the next few months, but this will apply to the US rather, with the UK to follow some time later.

At the Google I/O presentation in which Android Pay was announced all of the companies listed as partners – either banks, shops, or mobile phone carriers – were US-based, and there was no mention of a UK or European version. It will happen, but it will take a while. So if contactless payments is your thing, the iPhone is the device for you. (See also Apple Pay UK release date, features and supported banks.)

iOS 9 vs Android M comparison: new features

Let’s take a look at some of the other new features that may tempt you into the arms of either iOS 9 or Android M. Key features of iOS 9 include a major Siri update and deep-links in search results.

Apple says it has made Siri more proactive. The new features are intended to give iPhone users the same sort of functionality as Android owners already have in Google Now. And this new proactivity isn’t only part of Siri but also of search. Spotlight search will display information such as imminent events from the Calendar app, locations nearby that might interest you, boarding passes for flights you’ll be boarding that day and more.

Split-screen multitasking is part of iOS 9, too and there’s a picture-in-picture mode that lets you watch videos while you do other things.

As we will see when we discuss Android M features, lots of Apple’s competitors offer software-based battery-saving modes for their devices, and Apple will do the same when it launches iOS 9. Apple says its feature should give up to three hours of extra use, on top of the extra hour or so you’ll get simply from updating to iOS 9, which is more power efficient than iOS 8 (Apple says).

Turning to Android M and we find something similar in what Google calls ‘Doze mode’. Doze monitors when the device isn’t being used to put it into a deep sleep which uses less power and can double your battery life – according to Google.

The SystemUI Tuner in Android M lets you customise the Quick Settings to the ones you want to you the most and in the layout which suits you. Another small but handy change is the ability to uninstall apps straight from the home screen. You now get the choice between simply removing the shortcut/icon or actually uninstalling the app from the device entirely.

Google Now is a great feature of Android and it gets even better in Android M. Now on Tap means you can long press the home button wherever you are you call up Google Now. Better still, you don’t need to navigate away from the app you’re using and it will already have a good idea of what help you need based on what you’ve been doing – eg. Directions to a location after chatting to a friend about meeting up.

We’ve already got fingerprint scanners on numerous devices so it might not seem like a new feature but Android M natively supports them. This means you’ll be able to use them to authorise payments via Android Pay and confirm Play store purchases. Developers can also use the functionality within their apps.

One annoying thing about Android is downloading app requires agreeing to all its permissions which might include things you don’t agree with, like access to your contacts when it’s an endless runner game. Well Android M is going to change that with the ability to pick and choose which permissions you’re happy with for each individual app. You’ll also be able to accept or deny a specific permission as and when an app requests it.

If you send links, photos or files to the same contacts then Android M will start adding them to the Share menu to speed up the process. It’s a bit like having favourite contacts when you open the Dialler app to call someone.

Not only is Do Not Disturb (DND) part of Quick Settings in Android M, the volume control has been tweaked for the better. You can now easily control the volume of calls, notifications and alarms with three separate sliders – simple but effective.

Ok, it’s a hardware feature but Android M supports USB Type C which is good news for future devices – potentially starting with the Nexus 5 2024. You can plug it in either way around, it will charge your device quicker and even allow you to charge other devices. (See also: When will the UK get Android Pay?)

Android 8.0 Oreo Launched: What’s New In Google’s Sweetest Treat?

Coming in a fancy spaceship at Google‘s live stream from New York, Android 8.0 bears the tagline ‘Open Wonder’. With features like Picture-in-Picture Mode, Notification Dots, Instant Apps, and much more, Android Oreo seems to be the sweetest treat from Google.

What is new in Android Oreo?

Here we classify the new features based on how you will spot and use them on Android 8.0 Oreo.

New Features on Android O 2x Faster Boot Speed

The first and foremost thing to note with your Android Oreo device will be the boot time. With Android 8.0 Oreo, your phone will boost up to 2x faster (as seen on Google Pixel). Another notable thing here is Limiting Background Processes. This will give you a faster Android experience by controlling the apps running in the background.

Picture-in-Picture Mode

Another new feature accompanying Android 8.0 Oreo, Picture in Picture mode will allow you to use two apps at once. It is slightly different from the split screen as here you have one app in a small segment and the other covering the entire screen.

Autofill Passwords

Talk about ease of access and here comes Autofill. It is a new API integrated into Android 8.0 Oreo. Autofill takes your permission and fills up your login ID and passwords wherever required and lets you login instantly.

New Emojis

For the love of expressions, Android 8.0 Oreo comes with a refreshed Emoji/Emoticons set. The new set has over 60 new emojis including a T-Rex, Mind-Blown, and a Girl wearing a Hijab. Moreover, Android 8.0 Oreo offers better color rendering, thanks to Deep Color Integration, which offers a better visual experience on your Android device.

Notification Dots and Instant Apps

Android 8.0 Oreo will access faster and more sorted information about your notifications. The new Adaptive Notification Dots show at your app icons, telling that you have unread notifications. Other updates in Notifications are Separate Channels for notifications, Highlighted notifications, and so forth.

Security and Convenience on Android 8.0 Oreo

The first point that Google’s introductory video of Android Oreo raised was Safety. It is said to be a safer, more secure and even convenient Android experience. Here is why.

Play Protect

Google Play Protect is scanning 50 billion apps every day, so even if you have not installed an app, it is secured and scanned. In case there are any malware or malicious apps found on the Play Store, Google takes action on it.

Unknown Apps WiFi Assistant

Talking about convenience, WiFi Assistant on Android 8.0 Oreo automatically connects you to High-Quality Open WiFi networks.
