With Big Sur and Apple Silicon support. Full release notes are probably available in a few hours.

Oh, yes, it is now "Logic Pro" and no longer "Logic Pro X".

As usual, before updating, backup or make a copy of your current version of logic.

As Big Sur is being released imminently, and as it is usual that a new logic version will run on the current and previous MacOS versions, possibly Logic 10.6 may require as a minimum MacOS 10.15 Catalina. Scanning briefly through the release notes I didn't actually see any system requirements for 10.6, hopefully they will be available soon.

kind regards

@ Mark:
You should think about changing the name of this forum from "Logic Pro X" to just "Logic Pro" - as per the new name for Logic Pro 10.6

Good catch Colin, thanks. At the risk of being a little pedantic, the subform is in fact called Logic Pro, whereas the prefixes are Logic Pro x, Logic Pro 9 etc. I think that is where we should make a change, will get on to it!

kind regards

Having decided to stick with Mojave I'd like to know whether Logic Pro 10.6 is operationally sufficiently improved to justify me risking Big Sur at this time.

Any observations gratefully noted

Always a tricky one to answer Pete! FWIW Logic 10.6.0 seems fine here on two Macs, an ancient Mac Pro 5.1 patched and running OS 10.15.5, and a new 16" Mac Book Pro Running OS 10.15.7. The bug fix list is pretty long and worth checking out. If you are considering going to Big Sur, well, Logic should work well on it, but given that it is so new, I would suggest taking the time to check any and all of your 3rd party Apps - especially Plug-ins-for compatibility. I have received quite a number of Mails from various AU developers advising that their products are not yet ready for Big Sur.

The safe way would be to clone your current drive to a second one, and update that to Big Sur in order to test without "burning your bridges". I've been doing that with that old Mac Pro for quite a few years.

kind regards

The main thing you need to be aware about is the fact that 32-bit apps and plugins won't work in Big Sur. Also, quite a few plugin manufacturers have warned users that their plugins do not yet work in Logic Pro 10.6/Big Sur.

The safest path forward is to clone your system on a separate drive and update the clone to Big Sur and Logic 10.6 to see for yourself what dies (or not). If you're happy, then update your main drive.
