pict Emagic's Logic (9) RE: Emagic's Logic 08 Jul 02


I use Logic on the Mac and it blows Cakewalk/Sonar,Cubase and Digital Performer away if you ask me.I've used all of the aforementioned programs extensively and Logic is by far and away the one I prefer.I started using Logic on the PC then I switched to Logic on the Mac.It was very shady that they just released a new version along with hardware controllers and then dumped Windows users after they'd just laid out their hard earned cash.The offer they are making to Windows users is only any use to them if they either already have a Mac or wish to shell out for a new Mac,obviously it's Apple who are calling the shots now,and it's them that have dumped the windows side of it not Emagic whose 2 or 3 bigwigs walk away with a small fortune while the Emagic workers get shafted i.e. the Emagic windows coders,let's hope Apple don't ruin an exceptionally good program by making it Isequencer or something equally as bad.

Cakewalk and Steinberg will be happy with the gap left in the windows market they've already moved in on the Logic windows users with tempting crossgrade offers that allow the prospective customer to keep Logic at the same time,but Motu(Digital Performer)who are Mac only will probably feel worried by the competition from an advanced audio/midi sequencer owned by Apple.

As for Logic being difficult to learn it's really just a case of grasping the concept of the environment once you've grasped that it becomes clear why they called the program Logic Audio.If you want to understand the concept of the environment all you have to do is read the manual, which is very comprehensive,and the .pdf files included on the cd rom.Many people equate pretty colours and nice graphics with a good interface but it's ease of use and how quickly you can achieve the desired results that are the marks of a good interface and on those terms Logic is the epitomy of excellence.
