  1. Love the features and all, but the big question remains:
    should I take a plunge and buy Logic X for $199, or should I spend another $100 on top of it ($299 upgrade from Live Suite 8) and buy an upgrade to Live Suite 9…?

    1. Leslie,

      to my mind they have quite different features now. I bought a cheap upgrade to Live 9 Suite, mainly to have access to Max4Live but also masses of instruments. Saying that I am tempted to buy Logic Pro X for the drummer but also for all the instruments that come with it.

      I don’t honestly like DAWs that much but I see them as tools to create certain aspects of the music with and having access to a range of tools can help send you in different musical directions.

  2. oooh lots of new toys to may your music even dumber. All these new “features” make Logic even less of a DAW and more of a computer game than it already has been. No mentions anywhere about improved performance or sound quality. As a dual Logic and ProTools user I won’t be getting this upgrade(oops sorry there is no upgrade!!!). ProTools is more solid, sounds better and doesn’t have all these ridiculous distractions. Join the dots music making.

    1. Real men program MIDI in binary….by hand!

      All kidding aside, I really don’t think it’s Apple goal to be the end-all-be-all virtual instrument company when there are very formidable competitors in that space already. (Native Instruments comes to mind).

      On the pricing aspect, I actually like this new model. It makes first entry AND upgrading affordable. It sure beats having four different versions and dealing with the ‘nickel and diming’ licensing and upgrade paths. $200 sounds like a lot until you look at the competition. Imagine this purchase for a first time buyer. It’s a steal.

      As for you other comment, “ProTools is more solid, sounds better and doesn’t have all these ridiculous distractions”, I don’t even know where to begin to dissect something that inane.

    2. @ Conboy:
      Pro tools users have no clue what is going on you guys get all excited about your offline bouncing in your last update. Logic Pro has had that since Logic Pro 2. I have recently bought Logic Pro x and it is a lot better than Logic Pro 9 because of added electronic drum samples, loads of new presets, and either a complicated mode for past users or a simplified mode for new users.

  3. Honestly this is the best overview i have seen, even better that Jim Darymple’s review (have a coffee jim!)
    Perhaps this Ninja is a little biassed but he covers all features in context. This to me will better show potential buyers if they need to make the jump or not.

    Most importantly He demonstrates the upgrade has an Advanced tools mode that reveals the more advanced features and separates it from Garageband.
    I think some early adopters may be unknowingly be stuck in the simple or “Garageband” mode. maybe?

  5. I have only used Apple’s DAWs Garageband & Logic Pro (used Ableton but couldn’t get used to it. Tried FL Studio with friends, but couldn’t get into it either).

    Logic Pro is a big learning curve, but once you master it’s features and know what you want in your music, making music is a breeze. I wish that Logic Pro added full screen to the laptop versions… The no full screen is slowing down my old efficient workflow.

    Great program overall.

  6. Logic reminds me of fruity loops. There, I said it, happy now!! I thought professionals used Ableton Live and Pro tools. I guess logic and fruity loops is best suited for bedroom dwellers and wanna be producers.
