This looks to be mostly detail fixes: Logic Pro release notes

As usual, before updating, backup or make a copy of your current version of logic. Logic Pro 10.6.2 requires OS 10.15.7 Catalina or newer.

kind regards

"This looks to be mostly detail fixes".

No kidding. Even the one item listed under "new features" is a bug fix.

Other than "the ability to control Step Sequencer using Logic Remote" introduced in 10.6.0, has Logic added anything new since 10.5 (aside from running on newer OS versions and processors)?

I'm always happy to see bug fix releases! Given the size and age of Logic, it may very well be the case that the work involved in getting everything ready for ARM Macs was very considerable. We don't know and they won't say :)

kind regards

Nothing against bug fixes, but again, does 10.6 do anything you can't do with the last 10.5 release? It requires a OS update (for me at least) that risks rendering other things obsolete, so updating is not exactly a no brainer.

Why not just follow Apple's recommendation, create a backup of the version of Logic you're working with right now (presumably in your case 10.5.1) then update, if you want to go back you can. If you don't want to update your OS (I see you are still on Mojave, maybe you don't want to "burn your 32 bit bridges" by going to Catalina) you can clone your system to another external drive and update that, at least to test whether 10.6 is good for you. Works for me, I have on various systems Logic 10.6.2, 10.6.1, 10.6.0, 10.5.1, 10.4.8, 9.1.8 and 7.2.3 all installed and available if necessary :)

kind regards

Simply because to go beyond 10.5.1, I have to go to an new OS X version and lose some other stuff that is working fine as it is. If there was a specific benefit to 10.6.x, it might be worth it.
