Apple has unveiled Logic Studio that they describe as a comprehensive suite of professional tools that gives musicians everything they need to create, produce and perform in the studio and on the stage.

Logic Studio features Logic Pro 8, an upgrade that combines a new interface with Logic's "renowned sound quality and rock-solid timing", and introduces MainStage, an innovative new live performance application that claims to turn the Mac into a streamlined live rig.

Logic Studio also includes Soundtrack Pro 2, Apple’s professional audio post production software; Studio Instruments, made up of 40 pristine quality instruments; Studio Effects, with 80 professional effect plug-ins; a Studio Sound Library; and a powerful set of production utilities.

Logic Studio is now available for £319 through the Apple Store, Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorised Resellers.
