4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific value, easy to use October 3, 2009
By Andy
I am a hobbyist, not a pro, so keep that in mind as you read this; however, I have over the years used the old Logic when it was made by eMagic, Cubase, and landed on MOTU Digital Performer for a few years. I took a wrong turn and ended up playing with Reason and Live for a while, and then quit altogether. After a few years, I recently picked up Native Instruments Komplete 6, and never having found an ideal DAW, decided to dip my toe in the water with the new version of Logic Express. Having used many packages, I can tell you this is a robust package that strikes a nice balance between ease of use for a musician and powerful features for a producer. The Express version is not defanged, and can happily handle tons of tracks, Audio Units plug-ins (no VSTs), and without reading the manual I could record MIDI tracks, use software instruments, and record audio the same day I installed it. There are some really nice features and if you need the pro version you simply pay the difference for the upgrade, making this pretty exceptional value. I'm still fine with Express, but knowing the upgrade is easily available at no penalty is a nice policy. This is an intuitive and thoughtfully designed piece of software that has definitely reduced barriers for me at least in terms of getting the ideas that are in my head down and playing with them until they sound great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful upgrade from Garageband January 23, 2010
I used to use music software for PC from companies such as Cakewalk. Back then I found many software packages were just very hard to set up and use. I felt this difficulty took away from creativity as I just spent too much time tweaking and too little time recording.

When I switched to Mac, Garageband became my software of choice because, well, it was free. But it was also simple enough to get up and going without taking away from creativity, yet still be a powerful enough tool for what I wanted to create.

Now that I am getting more seriously into composition, I upgraded recently to Logic Express. I also considered Ableton Live (and have the lite version), but Logic speaks to me in many of the ways that Garageband did, yet adds much deeper levels of control. It definitely has just about anything one would need in a full music and audio editing package in terms of tools, effects, mixing, editing.

Logic Express 9 also includes some extremely powerful synthesis instruments. As I work predominantly in the electronic genre, I am very interested in these. But honestly, while extremely powerful, the interfaces for these instruments are very difficult to use and feel very un-Apple (Logic was purchased from another company after all). I'm hoping we'll see some modernization of these in the future.

I've also had some difficulties setting up my MIDI keyboard to have Logic consistently "learn" my keyboard knobs and tying them to instrument or effect parameters. However, when this does work it really lets you "play" the virtual instruments much more expressively than you ever could in Garageband.

There's definitely some Logic-specific interface idiosyncrasies (such as turning on/off or copying effects) that really did make me have to look at the manual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yes, now I got it going October 27, 2009
Verified Purchase
Experience: Professional Musician for 40+ years, now retired
Studio owner for 20+ years with the last 10 years on the digital side of recording
Singer/Songwriter 20 + year.

I'm a singer/songwriter/guitar player and I need an easy, fast way to get my musical ideas down so I don't lose them. I have been using Logic Express 8 for the last year and a half, which has been a great DAW but I wanted some of the features I saw advertised in the new Logic Express 9.

Well, I just purchased Logic Express 9 about 3 weeks ago and I love it. Apple has upped the ante with Logic Express 9 by an order of magnitude with all the new things I can do with LE-9, that I couldn't do with LE 8. Just the new "Flex Time" and the Guitar Amp/Pedal Board features alone are worth the price of admission. I haven't had time yet to try out all the rest of the new features, but I can tell from what I have tried that it's gonna be a lot easier and faster to get my songs done and out of the studio as a finished piece of music or on a CD that I can sell.

Hurray for Apple, they've done it again !

5.0 out of 5 stars Logic Express or Logic Studio Or ??? April 23, 2011
Here's my quick answer to the question above: when in doubt go with Logic Express. Logic Express is hands down the best music production software for the price, regardless of platform. I've been a Logic user for several years. I've looked at about a dozen digital recording programs for OS-X and Windows, and none under two hundred dollars are in the same ballpark as Logic Express. Logic's integration of live-audio, loops, and software instruments is the best I've seen. Logic Express, the entry-level package, has enough stuff to keep you busy, entertained, and maybe even productive, for thousands of hours.

To put things in perspective: Logic Express on a bottom of the line Mac has more features and processing power than a top of the line, quarter million dollar Synclavier or Fairlight system from the early 1990s.

Logic Express or Logic Studio? Since the upgrade price from Logic Express to Logic Studio is roughly the same as the price difference between the packages, I think most people are better off starting with Logic Express. If you think there is something you're missing, look at Logic Studio, but you might find instead that you'd rather spend your money on something else -- perhaps third party software like Reason or Komplete or maybe a new guitar, a midi controller or a microphone. It's nice having the choice.
