The logic of sound

In my spare time I am a producer and I try to focus on EDM so logic gave me tools with which I could take the next step. I liked

Pros

I like the templates that come pre-designed for different options and initial configurations such as a drummer, a microphone and a sequencer. The effects are very complete, mainly the 8-band parametric equalizer, since you can create filters from there without the need for other plugins. Using external VSTS was easy, even the ones I had previously installed. And the variety of formats for export was something that I definitely fell in love.

Cons

The initial configuration was something that I did not like, since it was somewhat complicated to locate my folders, in addition to the fact that the interface should have a simpler command instruction

Reasons for Switching to Logic Pro

I wanted to try a software that was especially for my Macbook

Apple's Magnum Opus, shows how good they are at writing software

Pros

One of the first things I do when trying out music software is to look for presets/demo projects that are included with them and Apple hit the home run with this one. It starts with the project file for Ocean Eyes by [SENSITIVE CONTENT] which lets you get an insight into Finneas mind and [SENSITIVE CONTENT] impressive vocal arrangements, followed by the Spatial Audio project for Montero by [SENSITIVE CONTENT] which serves as a mind blowing tech demo for the new mixing features as well as an example of a very intricate project running without dropping a sweat thanks to the M1 chip optimization. Both of this show Apple's influence in the industry, since no one else could get project files directly from such high profile artists, as well as give you an idea of how complete is the toolset in Logic. Neither of this projects have plugins, nor do they need them. Logic pro is a good value at $200, but it's specially noticeable since you have to compare it to the more-expensive "Suite" versions of the other DAWs that cost at least x4 as much. Audio manipulation was another highlight. Both of this artists are known for complex vocal arrangements and, specially [SENSITIVE CONTENT] heavy use of pitch correction. I expected to get an auto-tune bounce of the vocals but I was greatly surprised when I found that not only were the alternative versions of the phrases included (both of them do a lot of vocal comping) but the pitch correction was also done natively, which means you could explore the raw samples.

Cons

I'm not the biggest fan of Piano Roll/Midi editing, since I feel is more geared towards recording rather than building with a mouse and keyboard like some of the competition (e.g. Live, FL studio). Dealing with a big sample library is also a bit weird, but what I found that works best is to look for the samples on Finder or on something like the Splice app and drag-and-drop them directly into the session/sampler I'm using.

Reasons for Switching to Logic Pro

Native support for the new M1 chips on the Macs. Better (And I mean, WAY better) pitch manipulation tools for stuff like correcting vocal recordings and such. Free updates!!!

An Excellent DAW for Apple Users

Logic Pro has become my secondary DAW, with many features that keep me coming back for more. The optimization on Apple products is incredible; it's very hard for me to max-out mixes on my 2019 iMac. The Match EQ plugin is very useful for matching sounds (vocal takes, mixes), the Drummer instrument is stunning, and the unique editing features are well-suited to certain projects. I would need to see drastic improvement in the speed of the audio engine to consider fully switching, but it is an exemplary DAW which deserves the attention of every musician on an Apple product.

Pros

Logic Pro X is a full-featured digital audio workstation that can easily meet the needs of beginners and pros alike. Those who grew up on Apple Garageband will find the interface immediately familiar while expanding their mixing knowledge. For professionals, all the bells and whistles are here, especially the included effects and libraries, which are considered some of the best stock plugins on the market. The Logic Drummer instrument is mind-blowingly good, with perfect studio sound and amazing A.I. performances. And all this in a clean, tidy interface. Logic Pro will reward users to spend time to dig deeper into its feature set, and at the price, it's hard to beat.

Cons

However, Logic is (rightly) notorious for being counterintuitive at times. Important functions are often hidden away in contextual menus; Logic hides most of its essential features unless you activate them in preferences (again, seeming to favour the beginner over the professional); attempts at simplifying the recording process are poorly executed; the Auto-Punch feature will randomly kick in while recording; a gap in playback can be heard when punching in audio takes, and many other basic functions result in long Google searches to figure out. Plus, updates tend to emphasize showy new features over improving functionality.

Reasons for Choosing Logic Pro

I was hoping to integrate myself further into the Apple ecosystem while taking advantage of the massive performance optimization of Logic Pro, and it did not disappoint in that category. It's snappier than Pro Tools, and the interface is less cramped and clunky than Reason, and will feel familiar to audio professionals.

Amazing Music Production Software with the Magic of Apple

Overall, my experience with Logic Pro is extremely positive. I highly recommend this software to anyone who is a composer or music producer looking for an intuitive yet incredibly customizable solution. While Logic Pro has a slightly higher learning curve for beginners, anyone in the music industry will appreciate the advanced features and infinite customization options Logic Pro provides. From the sampler that can be used to create custom instrument sample libraries, to the included sounds that can easily be mixed and modified to fit any production, Logic Pro is by far the most advanced and intuitive music production software I have tried.

Pros

Logic Pro is by far, the best music production software I have used. The ease of use and intuitive interface make it a clear extension of the Apple line up. The clean, modern and futuristic design set it apart from the competitors which can sometimes resemble being stuck in the 1950's. I love how everything is customizable, including colors and labels. Third party plugins such as NI Kontakt integrate easily, and the included sound libraries in Logic Pro allow for infinite creativity right from the start. I love the new sampler and the new loop feature included with the latest update. The logic remote is perhaps one of the features with the most potential, since it allows users to use their iPad as a mixer or additional controller. This removes the need for additional hardware, which is a huge plus for touring musicians who want to keep their bag light. (Now if Apple could invent a way to connect multiple iPads to form an 88 key piano keyboard with velocity sensitivity and sustain pedal, that would be truly epic). With built in score functionality, and endless editing options, overall, this is by far the best music production software out there.

Cons

Overall Logic Pro is the best music production software I have used. The only downsides I have encountered are a few software glitches, including a problem when exporting audio. There is some kind of glitch I have experienced on and off for years, when audio is exported or bounced, instead of ending at the end of the recording, it keeps going on for several minutes after the audio has stopped, ending up with several minutes of silence at the end of each track I need to manually cut out. Another area for improvement might be ease of switching between views. While the interface itself is stunning and very intuitive, switching between views and other functions are not beginner friendly. All kinds of keyboard shortcuts are needed, for example, command K for musical typing window to pop up, etc, and then it gets in the way, so it needs to be repeatedly closed and reopened. Perhaps in the future there could be a way to streamline all of this, so it is more dynamic, and less stop and go.
