Apple has released the 9.1.5 update to Logic and it includes many bug fixes and much improved compatibilty with the Apogee Duet 2.
From Apple's Release Notes about the Logic Pro 9.1.5 Update:
  • Resolves an issue which could cause unexpected feedback in Logic after importing a song from GarageBand for iPad.
  • Selecting the “Open Apogee Control Panel” command will now launch Apogee’s Maestro 2 application if a Duet 2 is attached.
Performance and Stability
  • Resolves an issue in which Logic might quit unexpectedly when creating a new project.
  • Resolves an issue in which Logic might quit unexpectedly when moving audio regions in the Arrange window.
  • Resolves an issue introduced in Logic 9.1.4 in which LFO sync for some Logic plug-ins did not sound as expected.
  • Resolves an issue introduced in Logic 9.1.4 in which automating the Wet/Dry mix control in Delay Designer resulted in zipper noise.
  • The EVB3 plug-in now correctly responds to sustain off messages.
  • Direct text input of the pitch reference for the Tuner plug-in now works correctly.
  • Fixes an issue in which performing undo after recording a MIDI take sometimes caused the MIDI track to stop sounding.
  • The “Toggle Zoom to Fit Selection or All Contents” key command now correctly recalls the the previous zoom view rather than zooming in on the entire project.
  • Resolves an issue introduced in Logic 9.1.4 in which some regions might shift out of position after using the Pack Take Folder command.
  • Fixes an issue in which Japanese key command sets were not available if Logic was updated to version 9.1.4 before launching Logic for the first time.
  • Resolves a rare take folder issue in which performing undo after deleting a comp section could cause regions in subsequent tracks to shift to the next adjacent track.
  • Fixes an issue in which take folders would not sound on soloed tracks if the Track Mute/Solo mode was set to CPU-saving (Slow Response).
Download the update here - Online radio station with a twist.

I found this on Musicovery is an online music radio station that plays songs determined by the mood you choose with you cursor. You can also type in the name of an artist and it will start to play songs by said artist and other artists of a similiar genre and mood. Now listening to Bob James, Lou Donaldson and Joe Sample.

"People often listen to music according to the mood they want, whether to reinforce the state they are in or rather to change it. Musicovery has created a graphical interface to meet this need, the "mood pad": it displays two axes - dark / positive and calm / energetic - axes that are continuous and progressive, and offers an infinite range of moods; every song has a specific position on the mood pad. When rolling over the mood pad, music samples are played, allowing the listener to intuitively find the mood and the music he wants and to launch the program from the desired position...."
