Re: Not having fun fighting with Ableton right now.
Just got off the phone with a guy at the local Apple store, he said they do have machines with Logic Pro 8 loaded so I can come try it out. I figure I will spend a couple sessions on it for a few different days, right around the time they open so I can try it out while the store is slow (w/ headphones of course). I’m realizing after starting the Matt Schwarz FM production vid that the Logic shell I ganked just doesn’t have any of the cool stuff so I won’t get a real accurate idea of the program unless I go try it out for reals. He played one of the synth presets on Logic’s massive and it was so good I wanted to crawl inside of the sound and live there forever. That’s what I NEED in my music.
Of course I say this while trying an ableton live suit 1.6 gig demo install as opposed to boxed suite is like 46 gigs worth of sounds or something. Definitely worth looking into to see if I can fiddle with a full version of that somewheres…
Really looking forward to it, should be fun!
