Logic 10.3 is here

Trying the Track alternatives as thought this would be really handy.
For some reason though, I'll start a 'B' Option. Work on that for a while and go back to 'A' and it's disappeared.
Think i'll leave that for a while.

Could not disagree more. After using it for a couple of weeks it is so much easier on the eyes that I would never want to go back. It is also far more customizable.

To be fair, I haven't used it yet, and I'm sure it will be fine - just a personal preference. And yeah, reading through the new improvement list, there are quite a few things I've been begging the developers for for a while – and thrilled to see they addressed some customizability requests as well! Ironically for all the complaints about Apple, nobody can say they aren't listening ;)

Quite interesting how the personal view can be different. I have been a long-term user of Cubase (starting in the days of the C64 where the program was called Pro-24!!).

I recently sold my copy because of the switch to Logic. Using a Macbook pro as my main Computer the audio performance of Logic is far superior compared to Cubase Pro (first time in my live I could use a 64 buffer setting without crackles). The provided plugins are very useful and I decided to skip the few remaining 32 bit plugins I used with Cubase 8.5 (9.0 is 64 bit only).
The new track versions feature (which I used a lot in Cubase) is working as expected and Logic remote is a pure joy (opening the app, clicking connect and voila, instant control of Logic on the iPad even in the neighbouring room)

The workflow with Logic is (for me) much easier as Cubase (imo) has become overloaden with new features over the years most of which I personally didn´t use a lot. So Logic seems to be more useful for me as I can concentrate on making music. But the major point in favour of Logic remains the audio performance when playing virtual instruments. Cubase just sucked with my MacBook though I have a decent thunderbolt Interface.

The only feature I miss so far is Cubase´s control room feature as I use correction plugins for headphones as well as monitors. Things got a little bit more complicated now.

This update looks fab, just started using it this morning on a test computer and all is running well. Anyone used it yet with VEP 6 and if so how's it behaving?

It's very stable on my system. One master machine and two slaves (pc and macpro). I do like this update a lot. Visually improved. I couldn't stand 10.2.4. And it feels snappy. Mind you I work with quite a big template on a movie right now. So not just a couple of tracks and it is working smoothly. Region-based processing is great!! And I think the panning options are just very cool. AU3 will come I am sure. As will track management and other things. If you set it up right Logic is a powerhouse really!! It really is.

I've been having a lot of crashes on save, and I've narrowed it down to the TDR Kotelnikov compressor and Steinberg Padshop.

I have a 2011 Macbook Pro with an SSD and 16GBs of ram. The computer works fine, although loudly (fans) with 10.2.4 although there is an odd selection issue (the windows deselect for some reason so I have to click again). Is 10.3 more system heavy or about the same as 2.4?

(I barely use any plug-ins), only Kontakt5 and some free percussion plugin

I have more crashes than ever before...
Same here, a lot of crashes and somehow it feels pretty weak. But I´m not sure if it is LP 10.3. or Sierra. I was on Yosemite up to now.

On other bug:

If I lower velocity values within the region parameters, let´s say I have values of 10 to 85 and I lower them -11, all my previous 10 jump to 127, when you normalize the region with control "N".
