So I'm looking into buying logic express and just wanted to ask some quick questions before I actually went ahead and bought it. I understand the difference between pro and express huge but to my understanding it has alot to do with editting. They both can create almost the same amout but pro has wayyy more editting capbilities. I'm also getting a peavey 4 channel mixer with Alesis mkII monitors then waiting to buy a good condensor for recording vocals. Does this sound like an ok recording set up? That's all I can think of saying at the moment. Questions, comments?

QUOTE Thanks

Welcome SammieD!
Logic Pro 9 is a beast! If you are just staring out, Express would be your best bet for the price and just to get your feet wet especially since you can upgrade to Pro later. Hopefully the Peavey mixer you plan to purchase has a USB/FW connection. If not, look into getting an external USB or FireWire (FW) audio interface (I prefer FireWire!) with low latency and great anolog to digital convertors.

Coool. Yea the peavey is just a generic 6 channel mixer but it is a USB (unfortunatly not FireWire) but I'll live. Yea I have recording experience because I'm in a band that has gone through the recording process and I helped the engineer with, and the whole experience basically sparked a huge interest for me. I have a MacBook pro so I don't think running the software will be a problem either.

Thanks man

Logic express is awesome for the price.
In my opinion its worth getting this version first so you can learn how to use the software to its fullest potential.
Upgrade if and when you feel you need the missing tools,library, etc Dont buy it because you feel you have to have them.
Happy recording
