Hi, I wonder if anyone could advise me on the pros and cons of Logic Pro X as recording software?

I’ve previously used Cubase VST/ SX for years (which I liked) and currently have Sonar and Audacity on my PC, and Garageband, Auria, and Cubasis on my iPad, but I’ve never been 100% happy with any of them.

In recording terms I’m more or less a “one man band”, in that I will likely be recording all of the tracks individually myself at home. I do play in a couple of bands, but can’t envision ever wanting to record in a “band” context. Material is predominantly Country Rock/ Southern Rock/ Classic Rock/ Indie Rock.

The two things that are really important to me are:-

I need to be able to create pro quality drum tracks

I need pitch correction software.

So….. I was considering making a quantum leap, and buying a Mac/ MacBook with Logic Pro X. I’ve never owned a Mac, or used Logic, so I was wondering…….

Is it really the most popular DAW software now, as often stated?

Is Logic Pro X significantly better than Logic Pro 9?

Any other advice/ comments

Thanks.

Logic Pro is a DAW that you will find in many professional recording studios. The lay out is very similar to GarageBand. I guess you could say it's like GarageBand on steroids.

Is it the most popular DAW? I'm not sure about that claim, but plenty of people use it.

I can't say I've ever seen a studio tout having Logic.

They usually babble on about Pro Tools if they mention what DAW they're using at all.

I use neither.

Download the Samplitude Pro X 2 demo.

Tried Pro Tools, Cubase, and Sonar.

Samp smokes all of them.

I use ProTools 11. Mainly because that's the platform the college I'm attending uses and I was able to purchase the student version for a little less than 1/2 the cost. I'm not a big fan of the iLok dongle and it plugging up a USB slot, but I guess it helps the pirating issue.

I like the looks of Samplitude Roly.

I do the same type of recording you are planning. I used Guitar Band on my iMac, but it does have limitations. I don't like the 'built-in' drum patches (aimed at kids).

I'm using Logic Express 8. I don't know what more the full version has to offer, but Express has more than enough capability for me. I use EZDrummer for creating drum tracks. There is some pitch correction for vocals as well.

It has a learning curve, for sure, but I've been at it long enough to have gotten some good results. Bought the package used on Ebay.

Thanks everyone.

Greg, I'm also looking at buying used from eBay. I think it's pretty amazing that Logic Pro X retails for £150 now. Pre Apple, Logic used to be £499.
