Anyone here use Logic?
 
Starting to record using Logic Pro on my iMac. I like how easy this program is to use and how many different instruments/sounds are on here. I make backing tracks with the software instruments and then jam over them with my guitar. Anyone else use Logic, and how does it compare to other DAWs you have used?

Logic is great and very user friendly. I prefer it over pro tools

Logic is definitely a little more straight forward and easier to work with when making backing tracks. But Protools can do everything Logic can and way more, problem is its much more expensive and harder to learn.

Yeah Protools is legit, my old engineer used it and our recordings sounded really nice and you can really tweak your mix well.

Ive been messing with Reason lately and I like it alot for production. It has some pretty kick ass synth and other instruments.

Honestly I think unless you plan on recording live instruments then there is no use in using protools. It is simply to much stuff if you dont plan on having a mass of mics and live sounds. Im still learning protools basics currently. Today I learned how to filter out unwanting buzzing or ringing from intruments using the built in PT10 eq.

Yeah I never messed with Protools, it always seemed like a lot. Its definitely the most powerful DAW though. We used that and Logic to record our first EP with my old engineer. But now I do all the recording and mixing so ive had to downgrade software considerably haha.

I currently have demo versions of Reason and Ableton. Been tinkering with Reason mostly. Im trying to decide which one ill buy. My home studio definitely need to upgrade, been using Audacity and Reaper for too long haha.

Pro Tools is great, I love it. It takes some time to learn, but its an industry standard, so if you get someone else to mix your songs, etc. its always nice to speak the same language (since they probably use pro tools).

I've messed with Logic before, a number of years ago. It was cool, but since I was learning Pro Tools, there were some things I found confusing in Logic. I do remember it was really intuitive with MIDI, much more so than PT.

Also messed a little with Cubase and Nuendo, but I really have no need to use them.

I don't use logic, I'm a dumbass.

Seriously though, I've used it at my friends making various beats to jam to, haha. His dad has so many sounds on there to use.

I'm living this world and have to use logic day by day to figure it out...

I used to use Protool and Logic a bunch while I was still in school. The Recording studio used Protools, the Digital Synth Lab had Logic.

Logic is more fun, I suppose, in a just-jump-in sort of way, but Protools is soooo much vaster. Although I miss the ES2 in Logic...

Now, I have a sprawling array of smaller, cheaper, or free programs networked, so I can do a bunch of the same stuff, just not as easily.

It's gotta be said, however, that for what I've seen a bunch of area artists use those expensive programs for, they could have done pretty much everything at the same fidelity with free or open software...

But I digress. Logic is great. The ES2 may be the coolest, most fun synth I've ever used.
