  1. hmm
    strange pricing setup, although if you were not going to use for a few months.
    but it looks like the model that microsoft has been using, great for business standpoint, but for individual use I can’t see it

  2. This ups the pressure on Apple to come out with Logic for iOS. My first Mac with Logic was a lot less powerful than today’s phones. It was a G5 iMac with 512MB of RAM that I eventually upgrated to 1GB, and other people were running Logic on laptops that were G4. I don’t know how the G5’s altivec SIMD unit compares to modern Apple mobile processors.

  3. This is only usable if you need it for a month or so. Imagine paying $1.99 a month for a year so you can import/export WAV files. You’re better off just getting Auria.

  4. This review does not mention, that you can subscribe for the standard edition with $0,99 monthly, the PRO edition with $1,99 monthly OR you can just BUY the program for ca. $30 and have it for all times!
