Hello you lovely people :)

Im new here so dont go too hard on me :victory:


I recently switched from Windows laptop running Sonar, to a G5 powermac.


Currently Im running Ableton Live as my main host for my music fix. Hardly ideal some might say.

Money is tight and Im taking a serious look at Logic Express and Cubase SL. These seem to be the best options for semi-pro DAWs in that price range. I was a bit worried seeing LE7 described as giving "professional STYLE results" on the apple site. Im wondering if Logic Express cuts it regarding features, workflow, etc.

I took a look at the comparisson with Logic Pro, and it seems I would only be sacrificing the plugins. I already have a few plugins which can be installed as AU, and of course there are plenty of great free plugins available.

So, will LE7 do the job, and well at that?? Or should I start saving for Logic Pro?

TIA

You can try the trial version of Logic Express. then buy it if you like it... and the in the future upgrade to pro. that would seem like the smart thing to do.

Le is the mid level semi pro app just like the others you mentioned.

What exactly does "professional results" mean to you?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong here, but one advantage to Logic Express is that it has received updates on the same day as Logic Pro, ie. Logic Pro 7 and Logic Express 7 were released on the same day, where as Cubase SE is about a year behind it's bigger brother.

Yes you can get great results, I added the suite of plugs from Elemental audio for mixing.
