Apple Updates Logic Pro to 9.1.2 with Improvements for OSC, 64-bit, and Hexacore Systems
(MuseWire) – For those of us who weren’t paying attention this morning, Apple has released an update for Logic Pro, which is a minor update as noted by the dot-dot revision number of 9.1.2, versus a major update such as 9.2. So, while there aren’t really any new content pieces or plug-ins, there are some notable updates such as improved support for the new 6 and 12-core Mac Pro towers, REX files now supported in 64-bit mode, and support for iOS control surface apps that utilize the OSC protocol (no more whacky hacking to get your iPad working as a remote for logic, we hope!).
Also interesting, according to the release notes are fixes for an error I’ve gotten a couple of times, even with 48GB of RAM on my box, which is a low memory error.
Notable Fixes: 9.1.2 resolves an issue that could cause the warning dialog “Memory Getting Low” to appear when simultaneously recording multiple tracks in 32-bit mode. Improves compatibility with select Audio Unit plug-ins. The expanded System Performance window now accurately reflects the number of available real cores on all supported computers.
There are other minor fixes which will impact some users, but not all, and reflect a response to specific user issues reported to Apple.
The update is free to registered users, through the Apple Update panel.
I will be installing the update tonight, as I did a full system drive image this past weekend, so good timing. I’m curious to see what built-in functions will work with my iPad which has OSC installed already.
