Solid and stable for me


No idea whats up with all these reviewers getting crashes.

I use Logic professionally every single day and I’ve maybe had one crash in the last 3 months on a late 2016 MBP. It was due to a 3rd party plugin. The people lamenting the switch from 9…. I don’t get it. I have a 1st gen 32-bit Mac Pro still running Logic 9 and use it frequently for certain 32-bit plugins and to just spread the load sometimes… now THAT crashes a lot. Plus, hyperthreading with 9 was not great. Now, I’m actually getting the most out of my processing power.

The continued addition of features, the amazing contributions by Camel Audio’s team (just wait until we see camel space and camel phat integrated somehow… im betting its coming), the versatility with both audio projects and video projects make Logic my absolute workhorse, and not only do I never see myself leaving, I don’t think any other DAW can catch up at this point.

Would like more of the older plugins to be “modernized,” but really enjoying this update! My workflow will be a lot smoother now, especially with Tempo and bookmarking. Enjoying the new plugins as well!

Had to update the review, but recording is now laggy for me and I have to re-edit the MIDI after I play. It is even laggy playing without recording. Sometimes Logic refuses to open and requires a restart, some things have been renamed and changed. Nothing wrong with that, but now I don’t know how to access or use them anymore. Things like Panorama which was a way to pan MIDI.. is that now MIDI Pan? But when I automate the MIDI, no panning happens or when I try to automate the pan on the automation interface nothing happens? The new creativity this DAW just inspired upon me makes it worth the new growing pains, and I LOVE the features, just wish things were more stable and clear. Logic is usually stable for me and haven’t had these issues before

Well worth the money!!!


I’ve been working with Logic for about 6 years now and its been the best purchase i ever made. Its great for pretty much anything. 10.4 is awsome, i did like the old Space Designer though, it would be nice if you could make an option to revert back to the old style and new one. Another fantasic thing logic is amazing for is its loops, when i can't think of anything to make I’ll drop a loop down or whatever i’ve been having trouble on such as Drums, Synths, Bass, and even vocals or vocal chops! I’d alo like to point out that this piece of software can bee a bit bttery consuming (if your using a Mac Book Air). Also dont listen to any of that “you need to max out everthing on your Mac Book for Logic to work”…Hell no i’ve got the lowest specs and i can run the demo project just fine. However you might want to invest in an External Hard Drive though.
