I am sure this was a topic in this great forum, but I am new to the forums, and was un able to read any old topics.

I am an old school, music writer. Partituras and pencils.

I am getting this new high tech stuff ready. I will be writing music an recording live instruments, and mixing an editing .etc etc

I so far I read about Logic, but I read that for Recording ONLY PROTOOLS is the way to go. In this case should YI buy both, one for Recording (ProTools) and the other for all the rest ( Logic Pro7)

What do you guys Thing?

that would work fine, only you have a mountain of learning the software ahead of you...i'd simply start with logic (i can't believe i said that!) then, later see if you need PT....

even if you know nothing about MIDI, you will soon and you will grow to love it..PT's midi features arn't at all that great, whereas Logic's audio features are comparable to any of the major daws.

i'm assuming you're on a mac....if not, then muck everything i said and get Sonar! =oP

ya know what, scratch that, i really don't like logic, that name is just soooo misleading.....the layout is about as far from logic as magic....get PT if you must...it does some midi ok.

Pro Tools is much more user friendly. I think anyways. I use to be die hard Cubase, then I took some courses on Pro Tools and found out how much sense it makes. I also took courses on Logic, and I can tell you first hand, it's not logical... Haha, but since you already have a Mac, check out the M-Powered setups, the Firewire 410 is a great starting place and the whole setup can be had for a little under 500. You'll have plenty of inputs and outputs. It's a great program. Some people don't like Pro Tools on here because the hardware is proprietary, but it's not so bad once you get going. Pro Tools comes with a decent software instrument plugin to get you started with midi, and the sounds are half bad for being included. Good luck!

Just remember if you want to do midi stuff forget about it if your using ProTools. Unless of course your willing to pay a huge extra price to have it added to your package.

Logic is tuff to learn, but it also is a one stop shop for everything you will need.
