Apple today released updates for Logic Pro, GarageBand and MainStage. The good stuff in Logic Pro 10.7.3 is spatial audio monitoring support with dynamic head tracking on AirPods and Beats Fit Pro, as well as M1 Max & Ultra optimizations. Here’s more about that and the rest of the updates…

Logic Pro 10.7.3 changes

  • Spatial audio monitoring with dynamic head tracking supported on AirPods Max, AirPods Pro, AirPods (3rd Generation), and Beats Fit Pro. The feature requires a Mac with Apple Silicon and macOS Monterey version 12.3 or later.
  • Monitoring is possible through the Apple Binaural Renderer, which provides a more accurate preview of spatial audio playback on Apple Music. The feature requires macOS Monterey version 12.3 or later.
  • Optimized performance for M1 Max and M1 Ultra on the new Mac Studio.
  • Stability improvements and bug fixes.

Apple is a big believer in spatial audio from the get-go. There are good business reasons for this. It can sell specialized equipment to both professionals and consumers. It can also sell a listening experience which is audibly different in a way high-definition audio isn’t. High fidelity goes over most consumers’ heads. Heck, 320kbps MP3s are plenty good enough for me, too. As part of its spatial audio conquest, Apple has been building spatial audio mixing tools into Logic from last year. As far as I know, no other DAW has stock spatial audio mixing plug-ins. I like it when Apple pioneers stuff as much as I hate when it recycles the obsolete. For example, the new iPhone SE is a fantastic phone for the money, but there’s no forgiving its dated look and feel.

Changes in MainStage 3.6

  • New design.
  • The Sound Library has been expanded with 120 Patches, 50 kits and 2800 loops.
  • Optimized performance for M1 Max and M1 Ultra on the new Mac Studio.
  • A confirmation dialog now appears when deleting patches.
  • Screen control buttons mapped to the Tempo/Tap Tempo action can now increase/decrease current tempo in 1 BPM increments.
  • Patch Number and Patch Icon can now be hidden in the Patch List.
  • The current concert can now be renamed directly in the Patch List.
  • Stability improvements and bug fixes.

Changes in GarageBand 10.4.6

  • Choosing the Go to Left Locator and Go to Right Locator commands to move through a song project can now be performed using key commands.
  • Stability improvements and bug fixes.

    Is there any latency values reported on the headphones while using this monitoring feature? I’m assuming it would be much too slow for tracking/performing.
