Apple has launched a new version of its Logic Pro music-mixing software with an entire orchestra of features.

Available as of Tuesday, Logic Pro X sports a redesigned interface and more instruments and effects geared toward professional musicians. The new Drummer feature adds a virtual drummer that can play along with your song using a variety of drumming styles. A Flex Pitch function offers pitch editing for your songs, and the Logic Remote feature allows you to control Logic Pro X from your iPad.

Apple also has beefed up its MainStage live performance app, which can bring studio-produced sounds to a live concert via your Mac. MainStage 3 also sports a new interface and works with the plug-ins and controls in Logic Pro X.

"Logic Pro X is our most powerful version yet, with advanced tools and a modern, new interface designed to streamline the process of creating professional quality music," Apple Marketing Chief Philip Schiller said in a statement.

Musicians can buy and download Logic Pro X and MainStage 3 from the Mac App Store for $199.99 and $29.99, respectively. Logic Remote is a free download from the App Store for iOS devices.
