In what was a big year for DAW updates, Logic Pro X wins our award by a nose. Given how long had passed since the release of version 9 this was always going to be a massive release for Apple, but it managed to come up with an application that satisfied most existing users while also being accessible enough to attract new ones.
Drummer is great; Stacks are a delight; Flex Pitch fills the pitch correction pot nicely; the MIDI Effects hit all the right buttons; and the new interface (despite its skeumorphism) is beautiful. The fact that there's now a companion iPad controller is the icing on the cake... and did we mention that the whole thing costs just £139.99?5 Stars
