Messe Rumors...

by Chris Randall

MusikMesse starts tomorrow, the great grandpa of all music-related trade shows. Any rumors of New Hotness you know about? Apple Insider thinks that a new iteration of Logic is coming out tomorrow. According to them, Apple's briefing with retailers should be taking place right about now, so I imagine we'll have leaks here in a couple hours.

Other than that, anything exciting coming that anyone wants to share juicy tidbits about?

Gee, sure am glad I just sent those dicks $49 for 7.2. And it was only so I could get a bugfix for a video issue. I loves me some Logic, but Apple sure is doing what it can to piss everyone off. I sure dig no tech support... and my XS key (dongle) is getting wacky in its old age... they want me to pay them $90 for a new one. Protecting Apple and getting reamed for the privilege is WAY up there on my list!

CR -

You seem to shit on the AU plugin format a lot. What makes it worse or different from VST's, from a developers point of view? Any guess as to why Apple decided to go and introduce a whole 'nuther plugin type? I'm not a programmer myself, but I am curious, and I haven't found a good explanation yet.

Well?...Has anyone heard anything more regarding Logic at Musikmesse? It's now the 28th and I have yet to hear one single report on what Apple is doing with its 4 booths at the show, so I can only assume that the answer is "nothing new"

apparently they only have one booth and revoked the other 3.

Unfortunately no Logic 8, not even Logic 7.3 (which probably was just a typo). The only word I've heard is "we're working on something big". Alright, let's see it! It's really a pain that Apple are so shut, Digidesign is much the same way.

Anyway, a couple of other goodies have been shown, as for me, I'd like to try out the new Chandler stuff and the Arturia Origin.

I have tried keeping up with what has been shown and will do so for the rest of the 'messe' at

Just trying to figure out how links work. Sorry for the double post. Seems like this worked.

Yeah, that Chandler limiter makes my arm hairs stand up. For some reason the EQ isn't doing it for me. I mean, I wouldn't complain if I had both of them, don't get me wrong. But I _LOVES_ me some compression/limiting, whereas EQ is simply a necessary evil.

I have to say if Apple drops the environment from Logic, then I will be really out in the cold as to what to do next. Steinberg? Hell no...
