    Logic Express vs. GarageBand?
    So I have a new macbook pro 17". I got it mainly for GarageBand but everyday am finding more and more things that I love about it and absolutely cannot live without. I was wondering if anyone can break down the benefits of Logic over GarageBand. I have read that it makes it easier but how? Any input is appreciated! :-P $200 is a good chunk of dinero and Id like to get some input before I fork it out!
    I love to jump out of perfectly good airplanes!

    You find $200 for pro-level software to be expensive? Really?

    I'm not sure comparing GB and Logic is a good idea. GB is a consumer app aimed at helping amateurs develop songs, play and record instruments, and podcast. It's more powerful than people often give it credit for, but is also quite limited in some ways.

    Logic Express is the next step up - aimed at people who are more serious about writing, recording and mixing music themselves. It's generally more/bigger/better and more focused on music alone.

    There's a whole page about this that explains it better than I could, but you might want to start with this video.

    Yes Chas, I actually do really think that 200 bucks is a lot of money! Lucky for me, I have a friend that works at apple who got me 50% off. :-D

    To me, anything over $20 is expensive. Sure, $20 would be a heck of a bargain for, say, ProTools, but that's still a lot of money to me...and I have two jobs!
