  • Logic Pro X

    I'm on the cusp of buying. Has anyone had any experience of and can recommend? I find myself reading positive reviews then all it takes is the odd negative and I start feeling doubtful. Maybe there is an alternative that is similar but better?

    Any help much appreciated

    It all depends on what you want from your DAW, fl studio, ableton, pro tools, cubase, reason and logic all offer similar features but have their own unique workflow. I used to use trackers like renoise but seeing as how I only really recorded from my samplers into my soundcard I just use reaper now which is £30 for a license. Probably the best fully fledged DAW for the price. I have used cubase, fl studio and pro tools on and off for the past few years. All have their own quirks and advantages.
    For £140 Logic is very good value for the money.

    Depends on what you want from your sequencer though and what you will use the software for.

      There is a hell of a lot bundled with Logic Pro X which makes it, IMHO, incredible value for money. It's difficult to know where to start: loads of synths, samplers and drum machines. The synths introduced with X (Retro Synth, the B3, Clav and electric piano) look and sound great. The latest version of Logic comes with Alchemy, which is huge in itself. The old emagic synths look and bit shit by modern standards but they still sound good. Apple Loops. The new midi tools are also top notch, the arpeggiator in particular and you can run it out to hardware synths. Drummer! Seriously complete bit of software.
      ...if in doubt consult your dealer.

        Thanks for this. I guess I should have given some background.

        I'm kind of new to engineering myself having used mates to record on pro tools before. I've been using Garageband for a couple of years which I've now grown out of. I've heard the transition from Garageband is supposed to be easy with X pro. Also because I'm not recording anywhere with proofing I will have to rely on the guitar amp set-ups on the software - Do the amps sound any good or are they loaded with compression?

        Finally is it relatively easy to use?

        Thanks again

          If you have £140 to spare then Logic Pro X is a no brainer in my opinion, each time I use it I wonder if I should buy a macbook so I can permanently have it at home. I use native instruments guitar rig.

          This is a good thread on the matter though with some insightful opinions:

            stylesforfree, do you use Reaper for ripping vinyl? If so, do you have any tips for manually removing clicks and pops from the wave (I'd prefer to be able to reshape the peak, I don't want to chop out a chunk with the peak in it). Cheers...

            Apologies for the thread hijack!

              can you zoom right into the click and fade in and out really quickly over that click?
              there is a click remove button in soundforge, but I have never used it.

                Good point, that'd be better than cutting out a short chunk. But I used to use Cool Edit and that allowed you to reshape the peak, rather than silencing it. So that's what I'm after, ideally.

                  If you're an Mac user and youv'e outgrown Garageband for the price I'd say its the way to go. BR knows his onions even as an entry level in the world of Logic that's a hell of a lot of cool add-on's to play with and a lot of freeware plugins for Mac these days.

                  Cubase user so not much help but I know Mac pro guys swear by Logic and I've used Alchemy and its huge, worth the money in itself if your comp can handle it! Some of the old emagic plugins were great, I still use a lot of very old vsti's cos they still sound great and they are stable.

                    I still use Audition 2 (Cool Edit Pro's successor) because I am so used to the way it works and the features it offers, I struggle to use anything else! The way you can drag sample points around is great and I've done some serious vinyl restoration manually manipulating the shapes. I suspect nowadays there are plugins that do it just as well, though...
