Apple set to deploy new Logic Platinum software

The music-oriented Apple keynote that took place last week in San Francisco accomplished its mission of 'wowing' a consumer-based crowd with new versions of the company's the iPod and GarageBand software, but this week's focus will shift to music professionals.

According to an unconfirmed but seemingly reliable report, Apple is expected to announce a new version of it's award winning Logic Platinum software at the NAMM conference, set to kick off tomorrow in Anaheim, California.

A standard in computer-based music production, Logic Platinum combines composition, notation and audio production facilities in one comprehensive product. According to sources, the new version of Logic Platinum will be fully optimized for Apple's new Power Mac G5, and G5 processor.

One previous rumor had hinted at an imminent release of Logic Platinum 7.0, though at the time no further details were available.

Meanwhile, in what appears to be corroborating evidence of a new Apple products appearing at NAMM, one source claims that all of Apple's banners at the conference are currently shrouded until the show opens tomorrow morning.
