Logic Pro X Stories March 28

Today we are going to be taking a look at some of our favorite options for storing our sample libraries and other files for content creation. No matter what it is we are creating, at some point or other, storage is a must, whether it’s for project assets, backups or archival purposes. While this particular roundup will be focusing mainly on music producers and their sample libraries, many of our suggestions will work with other applications as well. expand full story

Apogee now offers free Waves plug-in bundles worth up to $600 w/ its iOS/Mac audio interfaces

Apogee, an industry leader in digital audio, is now offering some serious software packages with its stellar home audio interfaces. Apogee’s Duet, Quartet and the professional Ensemble interfaces, now come with a free Waves plug-in bundle. While you will be paying regular price for the interface itself, these Waves packages are regular $600 for the Silver bundle and $800 for the Gold package.

You can grab a Duet or Quartet on Amazon right now for $100 less than the new Waves bundles, and you can get these particular plug-in packages for about $200 under their regular price on Amazon. But we rarely see Apogee interfaces go for much less than that outside of special holiday events, and it’s usually manufacturer refurbished models. Anyone in the market for a new Apogee will likely see a lot more value (between $300 and $600 depending on the model) with the new Waves bundle offerings.

These Waves plug-in bundles come with a number of very popular products among professional audio engineers/producers including complete EQ and compression suites for Logic Pro X or Pro Tools etc:

  • Over 30 essential audio plugins for mixing and mastering
  • Great introduction to the world of Waves
  • V5 features new versions of Enigma, MondoMod, Super Tap,
  • Includes compressors, equalizers, reverbs, effects and more

For many, the typical Apple keyboard, or something from a company like Logitech is more than enough for their daily needs. But for video editors, music programmers, serious gamers and those looking to type in different languages/dialects, customized keyboards can be very helpful. There are already a number of options for these folks, including Logic Pro X/Final Cut Pro keyboards with the quick commands printed directly on the keys, or even this super-customizable $1,500 typer, with mini LCD displays behind each key. But the new E-Ink display equipped Sonder keyboard is looking to bring an even deeper level of customization at a much more realistic price point: expand full story

LG 34-inch UltraWide LED IPS Monitor w/ Thunderbolt $750 shipped (Reg. $1,000)

Newegg offers the LG 34-inch (34UM95) UltraWide LED IPS Monitor w/ Thunderbolt 2 for $999.99. Coupon code EMCANAP72 brings the final price down to $749.99 shipped. This is a savings of $250 off the original price, $165 better than Amazon, $60 better than our Black Friday mention and the lowest that we can currently find it.

The LG 34UM95 features an UltraWide format with a resolution of 3440×1440 that is capable of displaying two inputs at the same time and has built-in 7W speakers. Additionally, it has HDMI, two Thunderbolt 2 and two USB 3.0 inputs. Thunderbolt 2 features speeds that are significantly faster than the previous generation and can handle DisplayPort as well.

This highly-rated monitor was one of our top picks for high-end displays:

The 21:9 widescreen format is truly an experience all its own. It’s essentially like having two 20.5-inch, 5:4, 1720×1440 displays side by side in one 34-inch panel, and LG also has a Screen Split app that works well for easily docking windows side-by-side in various configurations to get the most out of the wide screen while multitasking. It’s great for pro apps that take full advantage of the wider format for timelines and other features, although it feels a bit vertically challenged in comparison to 4K monitors on the list if a horizontal workflow isn’t your thing.

With your savings, grab an additional Thunderbolt cable to enhance your new setup.
