Apple Releases Logic 7, Logic Express 7, and New Jam Packs

In a huge spat of announcements for MacJammers everwhere, Apple has released and is now shipping several great new music products. Detailed below are ach of the products announced today:
  • Logic Pro 7. The latest in Apple's flagship professional audio editor, Logic Pro 7 brings new instruments and effects, a loop composition tool, and optimizations for the G5 processor, in addition to many improvements over version 6.
  • Logic Express 7. Perhaps most interesting for advanced GarageBand users is the announcement of Logic Express 7, which is billed as a "stepup up from GarageBand for aspiring musicians." Express includes many of the advanced features of Logic Pro, but for a slimmed price tag of only $299. In this version, there are some conspicuously GarageBand-friendly additions including GarageBand file import, Apple loop browser, and loop creation tools. Express now appears to be the most logical choice for musicians looking to move beyond the limitations of GarageBand.
  • Jam Packs 2 and 3. Apple has released two new additions to its family of Apple-loop Jam Packs. Jam Pack 2, entitled "Remix Tools" is geared toward electronic and hip hop musicians, while Jam Pack 3, "Rythm Section," provides a host of percussive and bass loops and instruments. Both new Jam Packs are available for $99.99.
