Apple reveals upcoming feature of Logic ProFuture versions of Apple's Logic Pro audio creation application will boast a new feature aimed at reducing the latency caused by the addition of plug-ins.
Presenting at the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) conference, Apple Computer on Thursday revealed that an upcoming feature called Bus Latency Compensation will find its way into a future version of the company's professional audio application, Logic Pro.
"Bus Latency Compensation can affect Logic in two ways. The first deals specifically with latency issues encountered when using an external DSP like PowerCore," Dr. Gerhard Lengeling, Apple senior director and lead architect for the company's audio applications, reportedly told MacCentral. "The other happens when using plug-ins that 'look into the future.'"
Normally, when a plug-in is added to Logic natively it does not add latency, but Lengeling said in rare cases this can happen. "Specifically, latency can occur using plug-ins like a Linear Phase EQ and Limiters."
Apple reportedly declined to say when a new version of Logic Pro with Bus Latency Compensation would be released. However, the company did say that Bus Latency Compensation was being developed in direct response to requests from its Pro Users.
On Wednesday, Apple updated its Logic Pro and Logic Express applications to version 7.0.1.
