Back to Logic Pro X again after some ups and downs using other audios, and this may be the optimum state of Logic imo. Surely will keep using it.

I bought my first Mac because of Logic Audio. Back in those early days of hard disk recording each major update of Logic was a truly exciting event. I fondly remember the first audio recording engine with time stretching, the first software based sampler instrument, the first customizable virtual mixer and the first integrated audio effects plug-ins. With Logic X that old feeling of excitement is back with a vengeance thanks to a brand new take on virtual drumming, flex pitch, a beautifully redesigned graphic interface and numerous improvements under the hood. This is one awesome feeling.

Finally I have a macbook pro. And finally I can use Logic again.
Long time ago, when it was available for windows, it was my fav recording software.
Apple bought Logic and I was forced to use cubase but it never came any close to what logic can do.

Excited times for me. A new OS and Logic back in the studio.

These days all DAWs can do pretty much the same thing, and do it well. I've been using Cubase since the late 90s and it does everything you need a DAW to do. I like Cubase 7 just fine. I also use Logic 9 and Protools 9. They are good too. It all depends on which one you like.

Ironically Logic Pro X looks more like Cubase than version 9 did.

One argument can also be that there are more VAST plugins for Cubase than 64-bit AU plugins.

They are all tools. If you can't figure out how to use one instead of the other, don't blame the software! :)

I was so close to jump the Ableton Live train but Logic Pro X made my day !

Thank you Apple for the best Logic ever.

Thank you for this information. Can I keep 9 alongside of X or should I uninstall? I've heard something about 32-bit plug-in issues.

@ Jazzica: Logic 9 remains functional, no problem.
The trouble with third-party 32-bit plug-ins is that some developers haven't updated theirs for 64-bit – despite Apple sending all of them a letter announcing LPX won't run 32-bit plugs – so if you have such a plug-in, it won't be available with Logic Pro X. If that's the case, check with the developer of such plug-in for 64-bit compatibility, or at least if a 64-bit beta version is available.

Did jump on the Ableton train after all. But Logic is still better. :-)

Let us all "watch the way they go" for just a moment and share our pertinent observations. Watching the act of self-serving greed that serves no one may, in the end, be instructive.

I recently purchased Logic Pro v9. To get v10, I will have to uninstall v9.

I will also have to pay another 199.99.

If I DO uninstall v9 and find v10 wanting, I am not permitted to re-download v9, which I now legally own, as it is "no longer available at the US App Store."

Such dulled brilliance in the minds of self-anointed aristocrats whose only accomplishment will be the end of any form of trust between consumer and corporate atrocity is in itself a marvel, a feat worthy only of the lowliest of thieves.

I will no longer EVER use the app store for anything except updates, and of those I shall be particularly wary.

I was a long-time Mac devotee. I am no longer.

Such small-minded, ham-fisted pilfering aimed at those who made a company great (we, the users) is not only an act of unbridled greed, but also an act of heinous treachery. Unless of course we are witnessing some huge merger, meant to create a monolithic monopoly of unknown power and proportion.

In either case, I quit. I will have computers built to my own specifications in future. I cannot watch "the way they go" as I can no longer afford it.

Nor can I stomach it.

Do you really have to uninstall v.9? Do you have a source for this? I have a few 32-bit plugins that I hate to give up. I was hoping to keep 9 alongside X.

I dont write often (and pardon my typing & grammar errors) but jjwjazz you should get over yourself. If you just recently bought almost 3 year old software you should have pondered whether an upgrade would be coming, and if you should wait or buy (and be happy) when you did. Considering Logic used to be well over $1000 with all the plug-ins you had to buy separately the price of $199 is a steal for a serious piece of software like this every 2-3 years now vs Pro Tools (closest competitor In my opinion) which is at least $299 to upgrade from last version or up to $499 from previous versions, and Avid's upgrade cycle is almost yearly or less now

BTW you CAN have both 9 & 10 installed and apples own site references this here http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5794

Lastly I own the logic 9 studio version on disc so I cant swear to this but I am pretty sure the app store under your purchase history will let you download older versions as it does for things like Lion & Mountain Lion

I just purchased and installed Logic Pro X, and Logic 9.1.8 is still sitting right next to it. I also used discounted iTunes gift cards to do it, so I didn't pay $199.

Dulled brilliance indeed.

Reading your review my conclusion is .. you never upgrade a Logic version before. In the past you had to pay $170 up to $300 for an upgrade (I know because I payed all of them).

Now you not only get an truly amazing upgrade for a ridiculous low $199 but also the best new version a DAW can get. I call that a Top Deal. $199 is a STEAL .. trust me.

Stop complaining and make music instead.

And you can use 9 and X without any issues. Not sure why it isn't working on your setup.

I'll be very careful in future not to offend. That is never my intention. And I will try 10. Sounds great. Thanks for the information, all. And I will try to "get over myself". Good advice.

" I will have computers built to my own specifications in future."

Oh yeah, run a DAW on Windows and see how much fun you have! Not!

As others have said, you can use 9 and X at the same time.

This really is a steal compared to ProTools.

As far as upgrades… with the other DAWs, you have to pay for upgrades. It will cost me $399 to upgrade from ProTools 9 to 11. I passed on that. On the other hand, it only cost me $99 to upgrade my copy of Cubase Artist from 6 to 7. Apple is not making any upgrade paths, I guess because the software is fairly inexpensive compared to the other DAWS.

I eed some advice. . .

I am a pianist. I want to make "beds" for my piano, using my Rodes microphones and analog hardware to record the piano parts after I complete the "frameworks" on my Mac Pro. I may record direct to my Mac but believe I will need some sort of modular interface to do live recordings not using all digital instruments. I may want to do piano, bass, and drum tracks and then import them into the DAW that I choose (with your help).

I was set on Logic Pro. Now I see Logic Express at the same price. Are these upgrades or full programs?

Which is a better program?

Should I move towards Ableton or Cubase? I've used Cubase and I get somewhat confused. Any other ideas?

I'll consider any suggestions (on this topic), and thank you in advance for your expertise and your time.

Here's the lost 'n' . . . I said I was a bit confused . . .

Hi Jazzica,

Abelton Live is great. Its traditional focus of live performance and loop manipulation is not precisely what you want to do. Most professionals I know do some work in Live, but then finish & mix elsewhere. Cubase has been very similar to Logic since ye olden days when both were just MIDI sequencers. I had to switch away from Cubase when only Logic supported certain hardware and Cubase didn't (~2001). I didn't mind not crashing several times per day, either. Cubase taught me to save. Often.

Fundamentally, all DAWs (Logic, Cubase, Live, Pro Tools, etc.) can do what you want to do. I would still recommend Logic Pro, especially now that version X is out. Logic Express is no longer available—If you see it at retail, question that retailer. It was the "lite" version of Logic anyway, and you can now get the full version of Logic Pro for the same, sweet $199 price (there is no upgrade pricing on the Mac App Store—that's the price for everyone, 100% complete).

If you already have microphones and want to record live instruments, then yes, you will need some kind of pre-amp(s) and audio interface. Many devices combine the two. Since you are on a Mac Pro (as am I), this can be FireWire, USB 2.0 or PCI express based.

For a more detailed conversation than we can have here in comments, I'd recommend asking on the "Mac OS X Audio" forum (macosxaudio.com) or the "Logic Users Group" if/when you decide on Logic.
