Apple updates Logic Pro X, Logic Remote app and Mainstage
Wayne T. of Ballyrose Media sent a FYI that Logic Pro X v10.2 was released today. Version 10.2 adds Alchemy, "the ultimate sample manipulation synthesizer", and many more new features. For a complete list, including notes on general performance improvements, see the release notes.

Based on the past, I also checked for updates to Logic remote and Mainstage and saw Apple also updated MainStage (v3.2) for "Alchemy" and more. See the release notes for details.

And Logic Remote for iPad v1.2.2 update adds a new tabbed Transform Pad, X/Y Pad Smart Controls for Alchemy instruments and "Multiple stability and connectivity improvements".
