James Blake depends on Logic Pro X

The video makes it clear that this musician depends on Mac. “Grammy award winner, James Blake, takes us into his home studio as he works Behind the Mac to put the finishing touches on his latest song, ‘Are you even real.’ Editing, looping, pitching, and layering the track in Logic Pro X on his MacBook,” according to Apple.

Blake has been nominated for multiple Grammys. He took home the trophy in 2018 for “King’s Dead,” winning for Best Rap Performance.

Logic Pro X is Apple’s flagship music production software. It often shows up in Apple videos, included a recent one staring Grammy-winner Oak Felder talking about the importance of technology to turn musical ideas into reality.
