Amp Designer is a powerhouse production tool and is an incredibly valuable part of this suite. The genuine tonal characteristics are fantastic and extremely fun to use. Pack that with some very nice sounding effects presets and you've got the ability to record with a limitless palette of guitar sounds. A real plus if this is part of your skill/talent set. I think the Apple engineers outdid themselves with this super plug-in. Having this included in Logic makes it an incredible value. I would give fives stars to Amp Designer alone and would easily have paid half of the price of Logic just for this plug-in. It's that cool!
The built-in instruments and samples are rather good. Some are stellar, most are OK, and some are, umm... rather unique. But the variety is an asset, even if the size of the library is daunting. Connecting to virtual instruments and VSTis is a dream. Rewire is nearly seamless (although Logic will want 100% control over your rewire apps).
Please remember that Logic Studio is just the toolset. A great engineer or musician it doesn't make. It just gives you an outstanding set of tools to do the job and makes things easier and super fun to use. If you plan on recording (or use MIDI and Virtual Instruments) and want to monitor performance in real time, you are going to need a high quality audio interface with ASIO drivers. There are dozens available to fit a variety of needs and budgets. This isn't a fault of Logic, this is just the way software-based Digital Audio Workstations work.
The sonic quality of Logic is great. There's clean & clear control over your sound. Some wonderfully modeled effects for dynamics, modulation, reverb and delay (and more) are built in. It's clear that careful attention was paid to these plug-ins. They sound great!
Your sound will only be as good as your weakest link. So, if you're recording with a microphone make sure you have a good signal path up and including to the audio interface. Good mics and pre-amps are not things that any software is going to emulate. Garbage in - garbage out (although it will be somewhat shiner).
There are way more features of this suite that I've not not tapped into yet and some that I'm sure I"ll never use. But all in all it is the most powerful software based music production suite and DAW I've used to date.
Apple Logic is actually what you secretly hope for in a music production software, it makes you sound like a GENIUS. With just a crummy mouse, I promise that you'll have looped beats busting in your headphones in 10 minutes. The Piano Roll ACTUALLY WORKS. You get an array of effects and more guitar pedals than you can ever afford (this aspect is worth the $500 alone) that have actual virtual analog knobs and switches that actually work like the real thing. You can elongate and shorten vocal tracks and the design of the software contains excellent pitch control that makes your cracked, awful voice sound amazingly polished. A little tweaking and you won't hardly recognise yourself. For training I highly recommend using the free Lynda.com website. In fact, if you are on the fence about this product, simple watch the free Lynda training videos and you'll be sold.
Don't listen to the moody reviews that grumble that Apple Logic is just a pumped up version of Garage Band. That's absurd. They have nothing in common other than both being easy to use.
THANKS APPLE! THUMBS UP. WAY UP.

It's rare that i spend money on anything and don't feel screwed at the same time as i usually feel that the price doesn't match the quality of the product, or the product doesn't allow me to go further with it as i hoped - like windows PCs...till i switched to a mac a couple of years ago after 10 years of PC frustrations. This, I cannot say, about Logic 9, and though the price is a bit steep, i can certainly say that i actually feel it is worth more than that.
What i most like about it is that it gives (what thus far seems to be) great room for self-development and doing whatever you can imagine, and even enabling you to imagine more than you otherwise would, rather than imposing a ceiling on it with its inadequacies.
I don't bother with instrument/musical loops from the loop library - which is certainly extensive - but just playing with the different instruments, and fusing instruments into one - like synthesizers and guitars, or a multitude of other combinations which you probably won't get through in a lifetime - is enough to keep this boy happy and wandering into all sort of genres with the excitement and anticipation of a bee in spring.
On my Imac (core i5), it starts up in about 10 secs, and runs without problems.
For those whom are new to this whole thing, and might find it a bit daunting (like i did a year ago), all you need is a midi keyboard, an audio interface (if you want to plug in your own instruments or microphone), a computer of course, and Logic, or other equivalents. (mine, respectively, is a 'Novation 25 SL Mark 2', 'firestudio mobile', mac....in addition to a AKG k702 headphones and a Rode NT 2A mic) And after creating some music, you can always upload it into 'soundcloud' for free and let others hear it one your website.
Hope that helps those whom are new to this and might want to venture into it.
Logic 9? The logical choice as far as my needs are concerned.
I've used Logic about a month, though I can't go in details yet to describe Logic.
You will simply never require any other studio for your mac than this. With it comes all the jam packs (which sold individually would cost more that the whole studio itself).
Brilliant pack, If your thinking about getting it, stop thinking, just get it!!
I am still familiarising myself with Logic but am clear already that this is a classy product with a well-deserved reputation. It has a clear interface, a multitude of shortcuts to optimise workflow and seems to go that little by further in providing ways for easier and quicker use. It is straightforward to use (if you have used a DAW before) but has depths that can be learned over time. The instruments and effects are high quality - the Ultrabeat drum synthesizer / sequencer and EVB3 organ are particularly good. I was struck by how well-designed the software is (thus living up to it's name).
Of the other software studios I have used: Ableton Live is unique and a great tool for exploring ideas spontaneously; Reason 6 has excellent instruments and effects and now has audio so is 'complete' but is currently £300; Reaper is very good, amazing value but relies on 3rd party instruments although would be an excellent choice if money's tight.
For all round quality and value, having tried all the above, Logic is hard to beat. Highly recommended.
NOTE - Logic Pro 9 (the main bit of Studio) is now available at £139 as a directly download from Apple. You don't get the DVDs in physical form but a real bargain
It is industry standard and yet so easy to understand and use.
This version comes bundled with lots of great loops and sample voices too.
Logic is simply fantastic.
