    • Fixes an issue in which record repeat would delete the wrong take.

    • Resolves an issue in EXS24 in which instruments containing zones triggered by key release via a group were susceptible to stuck notes.
    • In EVB3, the extended parameter area no longer shows controls already available in the main plug-in window.
    • Ultrabeat now properly maintains the set pitch of a previously loaded sample after browsing for a new sample and then canceling.
    • Resolves an issue in which auditioning samples in Ultrabeat with Voice Auto Select and “Preview in Voice” active could lead to a sample endlessly looping.
  • Control Surfaces
    • Changes made to a project using a control surface now reliably activate the control surface Save button.
    • The Undo LED on Logic Control now correctly lights to show the availability of undo steps.
    • Setting parameter assignments on Control Surfaces to fixed values other than 1 now works correctly in 64-bit mode.

    • With Catch Clock Position active and Cycle enabled, Logic now centers the cycle area if it fits within the current view.
    • Fixes an issue in which the visible area in the Arrange window would sometimes jump a few pixels to the left after scrolling to the right on OS X 10.7 Lion.
    • Resolves an issue in which using the Fade tool on a region could cause audio regions to be deleted in projects that contain unused audio regions.
    • “Bounce – Replace All Tracks” now places regions on the correct tracks in songs that contain MIDI take folders.
    • Volume automation now works reliably on all frozen tracks.
    • Resolves an issue in which the Hyper editor did not reliably update to show new selections at high vertical zoom levels.

    • After using Save As to make a new version of an existing project to a new location, the recording path for the project is now appropriately updated to the location where the new project was saved.
    • Resolves an issue in which moving an audio region where the anchor had been set caused the anchor to reset to the beginning of the region if the project contained take folders.
    • Fixes an issue in which moving or copying a take folder with the drag mode set to No Overlap could alter the take folder.

Logic Pro 1.9.6 is now also available to purchase from the Mac App Store, priced $199.99 USD.

Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.”

Majority of Steinberg products Lion compatible

Steinberg / Apple Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

Steinberg has announced last week that most Steinberg products run flawlessly under Apple’s latest operating system, Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.

The majority of Steinberg products are Lion compatible; however, further development is required to ensure overall compatibility through the entire product range. While the testing phase was completed prior to the release of Lion, Steinberg will release patches and driver updates for current products with remaining issues.

The following provides information on the current status of product compatibility.

  • The current Cubase line of products supports Lion with the 6.0.2 and 6.0.3 maintenance updates. The LE and AI versions of Cubase have been tested and certified for Lion, with no further updates required. Due to changes in Lion, Cubase running in 64-bit mode cannot properly handle 32-bit VST plug-ins. This issue, however, is currently being addressed and will be resolved shortly.
  • The current WaveLab line of products including the LE version supports Lion with the 7.1 maintenance update.
  • By releasing Nuendo 5.5 today, Nuendo is fully compatible with Lion. Also compatible is the Nuendo SyncStation.
  • Sequel 2 is certified to be fully Lion compatible, with no further updates required.
  • The latest VST instruments support Lion, i.e., HALion 4, HALion Sonic and The Grand 3. Groove Agent 3 and HALion Symphonic Orchestra have not been certified as compatible with Lion.
  • The RND Portico plug-ins are certified to be fully Lion compatible.
  • Content sets and Steinberg’s license tool, eLicenser Control Center, are Lion compatible.
  • Hardware products CC121, MR816 CSX/X and the CI series are yet to be tested.
