Above & Beyond's Tony McGuinness says "...I've been using it for eighteen years in one form or another, the guys are much the same I think, so I guess because we're used to it, but it does allow you to do so much. There are lots of annoying recent bugs, especially automation chase issues and rogue cache pops and stuff like that, but it is so incredibly powerful and, with the key commands and multi window thing, really fast." He goes on to say the group uses Logic's ES1 synth and ESX24 sampler heavily in their productions. About the ESX24 he says "...we all know it so well you can get up and running so quickly. A lot of our pianos are just the Garageband Piano sound running in an EXS24." And of the ES1, "The ES1 is just fabulous, it’s in almost all of our productions somewhere."more
"What I love about Logic Pro X is that you can import channel strips, including MIDI and bus routing. The way Benno and I work is, everything is hooked up to an old Apple server upstairs from my studio. That houses all of my samples and it’s fast enough that I can work from one server and have two projects open and streaming from it at the same time. Then Benno and I can each open the same project and, search for bass lines, import entire channel strips with MIDI or audio information, automation, or whatever, and efficiently combine our ideas." - [Armin Van Buuren](http://www.uaudio.com/blog/armin-van-buuren).more
Dillon mentions in this Tweet and in a series of replies that while he still uses Ableton to write tracks, he is trying out Logic on the mixing side. Much to his dismay, while Logic has completely customizable key commands, he cannot find a complete mapping online to make the commands identical to Ableton (as he is trying to avoid spending a day setting them all manually).more
In a YouTube video Tha Bizness is seen using Apple's Logic Pro as their DAW running on their Apple MacBook Pro. Here they're producing the hit song "Sherane," sung by hip-hop sensation Kendrick Lamar. They take what they record into Native Instruments' Maschine, and export it into Logic Pro: "We'll export that into Logic as a waveform, and so we won't have to do too much EQing and too much other stuff in Logic, besides just sequencing the track and adding extra bits and pieces to turn it into a real track."more
"I actually write beats in Logic. I feel like the layout of Logic is much more, I guess, sexy. Ableton is definitely more intuitive, and you can do more with Ableton. I think eventually I'm gonna switch over, but it's a little bit of a learning curve to get the mixdowns sounding the same way they do in Logic... because Ableton is a little bit weird like that. I use all the stock logic EQs, I love em I think they sound great."more
It's unclear what version of Logic Pro Underworld uses currently, but back in 2000 they were on version 4.5. Rick Smith says "We've recently taken out a lot of things, partly because things became so cluttered, partly because the plug-ins that I use in Logic Audio are so brilliant. Audio effects plug-ins are fantastic things, they've made a huge difference. You can now run a mix in the computer that comes out in stereo, so the size of the console isn't really an issue."more
While Chromeo prefer vintage hardware synths in the studio, they turn to Logic to jot down ideas on the road: "The Logic people from Apple took me into a studio for a tutorial on Logic Studio. It’s pretty cool, and I intend to use it on the road for ideas. If I have something in my head that I want to get out, I can bust out Logic and with the included soft synths, I’ve got a great Wurlitzer sound, great Rhodes and Clav sounds, B-3 sounds, synth sounds, all that."more
I haven’t used it much yet because I'm finishing an album produced with 9. But first impressions are very good. It needed a re-style general.
In this interview with Paul Banks, he discusses his creative process for his solo efforts under the moniker *Banks*. The interviewer asks him: > It sounds like you've worked on your solo music a lot while you're on the road, using the laptop as a tool. What kind of software did you use for that? To which Paul Banks replies, "I just used Logic." He goes on to explain how moving from a four-track recorder to using Logic has helped him out a lot: > "It wasn't until I got Logic that I was able to write the drum beats out and do the bass lines and build up all the string arrangements. That was all the process that brought out my first record. So when I went down to this record, it's like, "Oh no, this is my system." Now I know how to make my songs. I educated myself in how to execute the ideas from start to finish to make my first record, and this time, I just used that method." > "So it begins with a guitar riff. If I think it's good enough to start to build into something, I'll record the guitar riff in and probably write a structure on guitar first and input all of that, and then go about writing all the bass and guitar. Once I have a song on guitar, it's on. There's no reason to not get it finished. So it wasn't like a struggle to make this record. I kept having lots of ideas."

64 Bit baby!!! Easy layout and great sound!
My optional sequencer software
In this photo from Mike Hawkins' Twitter, Mike has an instance of Sylenth (a 32-bit VST) open next to the "About" window for Logic Pro X. The purpose of the tweet is to show off how he was able to open a 32-bit plugin in X, thanks to a plugin called "32 Lives" which allows X to run 32-bit plugins (as X can only run 64-bit plugins without it).more
In this Instagram photo, Chocolate Puma is seen using Logic Pro X to do "Last minute mixing & editing for tonight's gig @ slake nyc ????". The interface of Logic Pro X puts the time and CPU meters on top, whereas in 9 and previous versions they were on the bottom. Additionally, the icon for the project file is designed differently from those of Logic Pro 9.more
In their Twitter photo, Matisse and Sadko greet their new DAW: "Hello X!" The layout and interface are also consistent with Logic Pro X (as opposed to 9, which did not have the same volume sliders on each horizontal track in the arrangement window and had the transport bar on the bottom instead of the top).more
Quoted from [this interview](https://www.soundonsound.com/people/steven-wilson-remixing-classic-albums): > The guys in Apple in Hamburg that take care of Logic have become good friends, to the point that they actually changed some of the 5.1 implementation based on my suggestions. I can't imagine being able to do that with most companies of that size. You'd think Apple of all companies would be the most impenetrable of all, but they've been fantastic. So I've been a Logic guy probably for more than 20 years now.more
He says: “The software tools within Logic X that I most often use include: NI Komplete (the whole suite and samplers), NI Massive, VPS Metrum (To make kicks), Logic’s ES2, EXS24, Xfer plugins (like LFO Tool), Sylenth1, FabFilter Pro Suite, EW/QL Symphonic Samples, Voxengo SPAN, iZotope Ozone (Just for analysis, not for actual processing)", in the second paragraph.more
The instagram picture indicates him using Logic in the studio. Also, in an interview he says : "i work with logic as mixing host, but route everything out to my mackie analog mixer and then back to logic to record the final mix. i just use hardware like a tc for mastering and a channel one for pre amp my mic when i do vocal recordings. software wise i use anything from silent,omnisphere,nexus, everything from native-instruments and for orchestra i use vienna" https://djnewsmag.com/interviews/item/3448-roger-shahmore
Havoc talks at 7:25 in this video about past gear and his musical roots "So Y'kno I left the Mp behind for sometime now, now I'm working with Logic." Judging by the upload date of this video, and the fact that Havoc says he likes to keep up with the times, he was most likely referring to X.more
This video post to Instagram and taken by Phil Wickham shows his recording process and the then current state of his new album. He is mixing his music on the Solid State Logic X-Desk Mixer. He adds this to the video: philwickham "Working on the record the next few days. So exhilarating to watch/hear all the songs take shape and become what they are going to be. I remember a year ago I was wondering/praying/asking about what I needed to say on this record with barely a song in sight. Now I'm nearing the end of this process and once again blown away by Gods faithfulness. Trying to learn and trust the promise "in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path" in deeper ways. This is my favorite record I've worked on to date. Can't wait to share it with you."more
Lost Frequencies actually confirms that his main DAW for Music Production is Logic Pro X __________________________________________________________ Second Source : https://youtu.be/FXjTDrE-_-Q?t=4m19s In this video Lost Frequencies says that he switched from GarageBand to Logic "I've changed the program, I'm Logic now" at 4:19 minmore
My primary writing environment is Logic X. I grew up on FL Studio and Ableton Live, but both of those programs were too unstable, narrow and inconsistent to trust with anything that was more than a 40 track arrangement. Logic is the best marriage of audio and MIDI partnership I've found...some of my friends use Cubase and ProTools, but I've not found either of those programs to be intuitive or cost-effective.more
Nicola Lerra use Logic Pro in the creation session.
In an [AMA(Ask Me Anything)](https://www.reddit.com/r/Monstercat/comments/4ec3sr/i_am_conro_ama/d1ys2iw/) jestyrmusic asked "How did you learn to use a DAW?". Conro replied "Logic X". If this isn't enough proof, here's a [screenshot](https://www.instagram.com/p/BM9p8_-g4Bz/?taken-by=conromusic) from November 18, 2016 of him using it on his Mac.more
Generally I just use Logic and that’s kind of it. I’ve got a few effects pedals, too, and I’ve got that four-track and a few MIDI keyboards, but the bulk of everything is done in Logic. Quite often I’ll pull a vocal sample into Audacity if I need to do something specific with it or clean it up, as Logic isn’t always the best for working with audio files directly. But on the whole, my production work is done in Logic, and when I play live, I use Ableton. - **Music Radar**more
Logic Pro X may be the successor to the much-beloved 9, but it doesn't succeed on quite as many levels. Yes, it has new plugins (including a fantastic vocal editor that directly rivals Melodyne) and sounds, and if you're new to production or have recently 'graduated' from Garageband, then these will serve you well. But existing Logic users will be turned off by a rehauled workflow that caters more to newbies and fans of other DAWs than the way we knew and loved, as well as a distinct lack of 32-bit plugin support (a much-beloved feature of the previous version, and a big reason why many who upgrade to X return to 9).
Logic Pro X gives a lot of nice features, but it's not so much an upgrade so much as a shift from the previous version.
Coming from Protools to Logic was not fun. I went to macprovideo.com & there's the keys to figuring out Logic with ease. I also recommend getting the keyboard cover for it from kbcovers.com
I've been using Logic since Logic 5, so I've invested a lot of time into the program's workflow. And while Logic X is a notable improvement from 9, I wonder if Apple went far enough to keep the program relevant in an age of Ableton Live and other programs. I'm not saying that Logic needs to be an Ableton clone, but more attention needs to be paid toward simplifying and smoothing out the workflow, and updating ancient legacy instruments like the ESX24 sampler.
Okay, I've only been using Logic since v.9 but it's been over ten years! I made the switch from Ableton, primarily because my focus has been composition and production over live performance. We all have our idiosyncratic preferences and workflows, and Logic fits mine... Alright before you call me overcomplex, frustrating, and anal retentive, you Livebots, know that over the years, Logic has gotten way more user-friendly, and its interface can be chopped and cropped to the user's needs. With X we got a more modern, darker look [this can be modified as well], streamlined Main Window [used to be the Arrangement window], more feature changes and additions than I can barely scratch at here, Alchemy synth, etc., ad nauseam, but my favorite new feature.....
What an awesome interface for controlling Logic. Mixer, Smart Controls, but I'm head-over-heels with the Key Commands page[s]. It's quite simple, endless screens of customizable colorful pads that you assign whatever Key Command you desire. One row at the bottom is static with your most used pads; it is Transport by default.
When I first bought Logic, it was $999. Its now boxless, and its downloaded from the App Store for $299. This includes all the synths, plugins. Only one version, no Suite or Lite versions where you end up paying $1000 for the rest of the DAWs effects and instruments.
It can be daunting, the learning curve, but if you can use a help menu, and better, read a user guide, this software will provide a lifetime of musical discovery and the reward of creating and composing.
I have goofed around on FL Studio and Cubase before but I really enjoy Logic Pro X. It was super easy to learn and get started, the plugins that it comes with are great! Logic Pro comes with pretty much everything you need right out the door, best investment I've made yet!
I have been using Logic Pro since Apple acquired it (around 2002-2003?), and I wouldn't give it up for the world. I still dabble in Pro Tools when it is necessary, but as a songwriter's tool Logic takes the cake. In no other app have I had the ability to sit down at the computer with zero ideas as to where my song may be going and still have the ability to create from scratch easily. This app keeps getting better and better with every release.
Honestly, I cannot even begin to describe how much I love this DAW. I am creating things in Logic that I never even imagined in other DAWs. It's interesting, because if I have an idea in my head, all I have to do is sit down, open Logic, and within ten minutes usually my idea is right in front of me. I have only been using Logic consistently for about three months, before that I used Reason. I still do, I have Reason 8, but honestly having used both (and acknowledging that they are both good for their own things), most of the stuff I make is dubstep/EDM and Logic is just unfathomably good at helping me put my ideas in the sequencer. I love it. I would pay Apple 5x the $200 price tag for this software (although, I am glad I don't have to.)
Perhaps one of the least expensive DAWs on the market (Save Reaper and Mulab), Logic is a real powerhouse and has lots of features that other DAWs don't have. Its ashame that its Mac only, and some of the plugins look a bit outdated, but its perhaps the most feature-ridden DAW I've ever used. The MiDI event window is especially powerful, and it comes with a ton of great sounds/synths (ES2 anyone?).
