"I’ve been using Logic for about fifteen years but my studio at home has just slowly evolved over the last ten. Pretty much I’ve had the same desk and the same microphones for the last ten years, but the recordings have got progressively better as my experience has gotten better – nothing more really than just experience and experimentation. Moving microphones slightly, changing EQs slightly, tuning the drums differently and just, you know, moving towards a better drum sound over the years. [Fear of a Blank Planet] is probably a better recording than Deadwing was, as my experience engineering got better."more
After some time, Gray bought an ADAT to replace the 4-track. As they needed some more technical help on the project, Gray also brought in Iestyn Polson as producer. Polson, in turn, upgraded the duo to a Mac with a Logic MIDI sequencer to sync up the Groovebox and purchased an Audio-Technica 4033, bringing the mic count to a whopping two.more
The center of the setup is a Logic rig, where the signal path from each synth has been led. Via a routing and patching system set up in collaboration with his brother, Mick, Clarke can select any of his dozens of analog or digital synths for control and/or recording, as easily as if he were choosing any one or more Logic soft synths. Six Roland MPU 101 MIDI-to-CV converters allow him to run the old-school synths from a central MIDI controller, if desired.more
Per [this article from e-Musician](https://www.emusician.com/gear/goldfinger-tricky), "For Knowle West Boy, Tricky used Logic to record some demos and basic tracking in his loft before moving to engineer Vincenzo LoRusso's L.A. studio for arrangement and recording." Edit: the gear list at the bottom of the article identifies the software iteration specifically as Apple Logic Pro 8.more
"My desktop Mac is an eight?core Intel with 8GB of memory, and I have Apogee Ensemble for going in and out of the computer, and Brent Averill BAE 1272 and BAE 312A preamps, plus a Universal Audio 1176 compressor. Almost everything I track goes through the 312A, then the 1176 and into the computer. Everything else is done in the box. My master keyboard is a Roland A37, my monitors are the Adam 7s, and I recently acquired an Adam Sub 8 bass speaker. My room has some acoustic treatment, with stuff above my head and in front of me. I also have a large selection of analogue keyboards, organs, Moogs, ARPs. I love these things and I have about everything from the '60s and '70s. I've sampled many of them in Logic's EXS24 sampler, so I have a bunch of unusual and imperfect?sounding sounds that I can use for writing and arranging.”more
In [this article](http://www.emusician.com/artists/1333/gang-signs/43966) on the making of Gang of Four's "Content" album, it states, "Gill routes his Fender Strat with Lace Sensor pickups (which result in less buzz when gain is added) through a DI, sending one signal straight to Logic and the other through the amp, blending the amp mic tracks with a track modified with plug-ins, including the Logic amp simulator or Pedalboard."more
In this [interview](http://www.musicradar.com/us/news/guitars/interview-school-of-seven-bells-benjamin-curtis-on-new-album-ghostory-540836), Benjamin Curtis of [The Secret Machines](http://equipboard.com/band/the-secret-machines), and [Tripping Daisy](http://equipboard.com/band/tripping-daisy) is asked what he uses to record. He replies, "I use Logic. Since our first record, that's what I've used. It's kind of second nature at this point. It's super easy."more
“Even today I use the MP3000 and Logic, only because I’m able to bang out when I’m travelling. My new tracks are made on Logic. The stuff on Watch The Throne was from Logic, Busta Rhymes’ ‘Stop The Party’ and a couple things off my album are from Logic because I’m travelling with it. My in-studio stuff is my MP and all those fucking keyboards.”more
"I use Logic Pro a lot. Everything is integrated, there’s no external interface, it’s fantastic. I use it as a large sequencer, it’s like the nerve centre of the recording process. I also have it installed on my MacBook Pro. I’ll be going on tour soon and I’ll be able to continue working on my next album. I use GarageBand too, particularly as a notepad to write down all my musical ideas."more
Bandmate/producer Colin Newman is asked about whether the band records remotely, and if so, how they do it. He replies, "We did a bit of that on Object 47 with Graham (Lewis) sending in stuff to add into the arrangements. He has a laptop and he does everything in Logic. I very rarely get clean audio from him. He likes to process stuff but that can make it very hard to place." Taken from this [Tape OP interview](http://www.tapeop.com/interviews/88/colin-newman-bonus/).more
Logic acts as his MIDI host for the three keyboard controllers (CME Pro 7, Novation ReMote SL25, and a Virus TI Polar, which is the only sound source) and a variety of plug-ins, both built-in ones and others such as Stylus-RMX; Arturia's MiniMoog; RMIV drums; Slayer2 guitars; UltraFocus; Camelspace gating effect and T-racks mastering.more
[This article](http://gc.guitarcenter.com/interview/redone/) states, "Like most of today's producers, RedOne works often with Pro Tools. However, he prefers to do most of his work with Apple's Logic Studio software on a Macintosh computer. 'A lot of the plug-ins developed for Logic are perfect,' he says. 'One of my favorite plug-ins is the Lexicon PCM Native Reverb bundle. All of the great legends used Lexicon reverb, and now I have those same sounds in a portable rig, which is important for me because I travel a lot.'"more
"PD: So when you’re in the studio you use other software, other synthesis techniques – F: Oh yeah, basically everything that’s available. My main working, composing tool is Logic. And I do use all the plugins, all the Hipnos and Pluggos and whatever – I do use Reaktor, I do use Guitar Rig."more
"Five years ago I had nine computers running GigaStudio. Logic Pro was my DAW, which, of course, ran on a Mac, and I had some outboard gear, as well. Today, I can do 10 times more with only two networked computers tied to a 12-core Mac Pro. RAM capacity has expanded dramatically, and 64-bit plug-ins have been a game-changer. It’s getting very close to being transparent, where every sound you need is available at all times."more
I would use this a lot more if I could be bothered to install Massive (and other plugins) and my samples onto my Mac. But without them I can still get some great sounds from the native plugins. I generally use it to make sections to render out and import into FL Studio. The native effect plugins are really simple to use yet get great effects. This is a great program with an easy use to interface; 8/10.
I know the field of fantastic DAWs keeps growing, and there's much that I still have to learn about other programs. However, Logic is user-friendly and the results are incredible. The virtual instruments are renowned for their playability and sound, and with Logic Pro X, Apple has taken it even further, packing in features designed to maximize the musicality of your work. And for only $200? That's a steal. Highly recommended.
