Having worked with logic in recording school (way back when Logic was only available on Mac as a sequencer), I already knew the app was very powerful. Now, I bought a Guillemot ISIS sound card, and Logic Pro Audio Silver comes bundled with it (or at least a Guillemot version). I've worked with Cubase VST 24, but the interface in Logic is so powerful once you get you use to it, it's mind-boggling! I'm waiting for Emagic to come out with more compatibility for plugins. That would be a very big step for them, as well as adding MP3 output drivers and codecs (since MP3s are everywhere now). Another very good thig would be to try and centralize all functions, settings, options and preferences in one spot. That's where the whole thing about Logic being hard to learn all started. The program is powerful, but the user interface is scattered all over the place, so it would probably be a good idea to regroup everything and ease every function for everyone, while still keeping a graphic interface, such as the mixing console, eqs, and such. In my mind, when all that is cleared up, Logic would become the only contender for ProTools! Well, it would definitely surpass Cubase, Cakewalk and others! Kudos to Emagic for a great program!

I've used Logic Audio (3.5 upgrade to 4.0) on PC since 1997.

This is a very deep program and seems to be the choice of professionals because of it's Protools support and the fact that it is often regarded as the most powerful peice of sequencing/host based recording software around.

It's initally very hard to get into (crappy manual doesn't help) but once you start getting around things, you quickly discover how powerful this program really is!

I love it's real time parameter box where you can add real time quantize etc to any sequence without having to go into any menus!

The plugin's in 4.0 are excellent and it's great to see Emagic developing soft synthes/samplers that directly integrate with Logic.

Even Logic's plug ins will soon be available as TDM plug ins and thats really saying something!!!!

My big wishes for future versions is that Emagic develop something along the lines of Steinber's Wavelab or Bias Peak (either integrated within Logic or as an extra program) that would work in tandem with Logic for very precise 2 track editing mastering- of course full CD burning capabilities would need to be included also!

To me, Cubase seems to bring out the 'wizzbang' features before they appear in Logic but when they do come to Logic, at least they are working properly! My 2 cents worth. Cheers.

Best sequencer available. Excellent for mixing, except fader automation where I'd prefer ProTools 5.x.

I got a few days ago Logic Silver 4.1 and the new Softsynth ES1. All in all my first impression is that this is a solid piece of software, with a well designed interface. Less a toy like Cubase or Cakewalk, more a real tool from musicians for musicians. I like it.

LOGIC AUDIO PLATINUM: Simply the most hardy, elegant and customizable integrated sequencer and digital audio workstation. I've thoroughly road tested every major sequencer, from Digital Performer, Cubase, Cakewalk, Studio Vision Pro and more and have come to the quick realization that Emagic is solid German engineering designed to allow you to concentrate on creating fierce work.
