Emagic today introduced Logic Audio 6 and Logic Gold 6. The company has already shipped Logic Platinum 6 and says the new versions of Logic Audio and Gold will incorporate several features from that software release. They're expected to ship late next month for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.

Version 6 of Logic Gold and Logic Audio provides improved processor efficiency and enhancements to the Arrange window for better editing and mixing capabilities. The new versions also include two new setup and file management functions called Setup Assistant (Mac OS X only) and the Project Manager, as well as new Channel EQ and MP3 import/export (Mac OS X only) functionality.

Other new features for both versions include:

  • "Freeze" feature for maximizing CPU resources;
  • Arrange Channel Strip;
  • A new "Save as Project" feature;
  • Time stretching in the Arrange window;
  • Smart Snap for positioning and editing objects;
  • Waveform display in the Arrange window;
  • Support for ReWire 2 and MP3 import and export in Mac OS X;
  • Additional control surface support;
  • New automation features.

LOgic AUdio 6 and Logic Gold 6 will be available in late April for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. Both will be available as full version for new users and updates for current Logic 5 users. The company has not yet announced pricing. For more information, visit
