Logic Audio USB MIDI Fix Ships
Audio suite also gains multiprocessor support in free update

Emagic today launched its new Logic Audio update that fixes the USB MIDI problem affecting the latest generation of G4s.

According to Emagic, the fix allows users to work with USB MIDI interfaces on the new Apple machines, including Unitor8 MkII, AMT8 and MT4.

The new version of Logic Audio also adds support for dual processing in the new Macs (for Logic Audio Platinum and Gold only). The company says this support adds better DSP performance. The new version splits the audio and MIDI tasks and distributes them to separate processors. "This results in a level of timing precision not possible before; this is also the case when using the USB port," Emagic reported in a prepared statement. The new version also adds faster screen redraws.

Last month, Emagic revealed for the first time that the new G4s packed some serious USB MIDI problems that would prevent the proper use of MIDI interfaces on those systems. No other audio developer would go on the record with us to address this problem.

Logic Audio 4.5.1 is available now as a free download for registered users. For more information, visit
