Best DAW out there?
by Jay C. from FlorenceApple's Logic Studio 9 is one of the better DAWs out there, based on experience with Pro Tools (also excellent) and Cubase (also excellent), and limited experience with Sonar and Studio One. First of... read more [+]f, it runs on Apple Macs (I've run it on iMac and MBP) instead of perpetually problematic PC's. This DAW lives up to the advertising. Apart from sonic quality and the feature set, it seems to be the easiest learning curve to climb - - and this is the big plus (I've done the cumbersome thing and my time is too precious). During the last 18 months our band (original pop rock) has used Logic Studio 9 to record 16 songs to 95% completion (I don't know if there is such a thing as 100% complete) and four more are underway. We are happy with the process and the results. Recording is always a lot of work so it counts when the DAW gets in the way as little as possible. I do not doubt that a power user on Pro Tools would blow us away, but we're musicians/songwriters faking it as studio engineers. It would be well worth an investment of time comparing the various DAW's. If you find a bug-free DAW for PC it'll spare you the premium you'll pay to go Apple Mac. That said, we originally went that route and the outcome was way suboptimal so we ended up going Apple after having endured the expense of the PC attempt. I wish we had done a lot more homework - - it would have saved us eight months of time (precious) and considerable wasted cost. Check them all out thoroughly before you buy. close [-]

Logic Studio 9
by Jake S from Nassau County, NYI've been using Logic studio for almost a year now and I love it. Very easy to use, I learned how to use most of the important features within the first two weeks of having it. The flex editing works ... read more [+]great. Space designer is a fantastic reverb. I was actually kind of skeptical about the Amp and pedal modeling mainly because of the really cheesy names the virtual pedals have but they actually all sound pretty nice. The way your able to choose what type of mic to use on the amp cabinet and exactly where on the speaker you want to put it is really neat!! The basic plugins it comes with compressor, EQ, Gate, Limiter etc... are a great place to start although eventually I plan to replace them with Waves plugins.

I Have Never Tried PT but I don't think I would ever have any reason to switch.
Apple has this great deal that they offer when buying a mac called One to One. You can meet once a week with an Apple trainer in the store to learn how to use Logic or any other apples software for $99 a year. I've been using it to learn how to mix and I highly recommend it.
Bottom line: Get Logic!! You won't regret it!! close [-]
Only buy from Sweetwater
by Paul Reich from Lexington, KYEveryone knows Logic is amazing. I moved over from PT mainly because I was sick of being stuck with their interfaces. PT is a great choice, but the ease of Logic is just absurd. Everything is just....... read more [+] logical..... BOO bad joke. My main reason for writing though is to say that the free month of video training from groove3 is amazing. I don't know why you would buy this program from anywhere else. I was changed over and up and running confidently in just 2 weeks. I mean really flying around the program. Thanks Sweetwater. close [-]

I haven't had much experience with PT, but I couldn't imagine it being better or easier to use the L9. With the new FlexTime editing and great sounding DRUM Replacements, mixing has never been easier. Lining up drums and bass is a breeze and there is no change in sound. Piano, guitar, etc. is a little more sensitive but easily moveable. It gives you the option of choosing which part of the waveform you want to compress or expand. You can also quantize tracks to the n'th degree. Lining up 8 drum tracks and a bass track to be perfect takes 15 minutes. The new Amp Designer and Virtual Pedal Board are great sounding and fun. All of the plug-ins are great sounding and easy to use.
Throw in Waveburner, Soundtrack Pro and Mainstage and you have a complete high end package. Nothing is second rate.
Basically, I like it, AALLLOTTT!! close [-]
