I febuar købte Apple det engelske firma Camel Audio, der var kendt for deres Alchemy-software med plugins, synthesizers, effekter og lydbiblioteker.

Nu har Apple så indbygget Alchemys funktioner i deres egen musiksoftware, Logic Pro og Mainstage 3, der netop er blevet opdateret.

Logic Pro X kan købes i Mac App Store for 1.549 kr (link)
