All user reviews for the Apple Logic Studio 9
AlanForPresident's review"All Logics are great"
I have been using Logic since 7 came out years ago and I continue to use it now on my Macbook Air. I never really finish a full song in Logic though because I like to work in Pro Tools as well. Some people say they would rather use Logic than Pro Tools but to me they both go hand and hand if you know how to use them correctly. Logic 9 was a great improvement from Logic 8. Apple continues to keep adding new features to Logic that keeps me on my toes. If you have a newer Mac computer, I highly suggest investing in Logic! It will be one of the best investments you have made in your music career because it is probably the best music creating software from composing to recording all in one that is out now. It is a must have.
stompboxjon's review"Does it all"
One of the things that I really like about it just how the mixer is set up, the mixer setup makes it really easy to add my effects and mess around with them to get the desired sound that I am looking for or want to create. Also, the basic stuff that comes with Logic Studio 9 will be enough for you to get going you wont need to purchase any plug ins right way untill you decide to start expanding. It comes ready to create beautiful music right out of the box. On the downside, the program is not cheap at all. Also, I wish it was a standard program that came with the mac instead of Garage Band. Since it only can be used on a mac they need to work out a deal to where it comes with the mac automatically then I think more people would be familiar with it. But when it comes to the Mac DAW’s, this and pro tools own the show!
Many people compare this to pro tools, I really wouldn’t say it is like pro tools but it just depends on other equipment that you have and what you goal is to do with music. There are ups and downs to using both. But all in all Logic Studio 9 is worth the pretty penny it cost.
Hatsubai's review"Easily rivals Pro Tools"
If you’ve never a professional DAW before, Logic may be a bit overwhelming. However, it’s far more intuitive than most other DAWs out there, in my opinion. The colors are easy on your eyes, it’s highly customizable, contains logical placements of various tools and makes it easy to get a professional sound without having to go through too many tutorials just to learn how to record.
Flex Time is a new feature that Logic Pro 9 brings to the table. It’s pretty much like Pro Tools’ Elastic Audio, but I find it works a bit better. The detection of timing seems to be more intelligent, and that’s the biggest advantage I’ve found. Aside from that, it’s very similar, so anybody who is coming from Pro Tools shouldn’t have too many issues getting used to the new DAW.
Logic Pro 9 also brings some guitar modelers to the table with the help of Amp Designer. I’m usually critical of modelers out there, especially ones built into DAWs, and this is no exception. It’s really not that great for high gain tones, and it seems to be more centered towards clean to low gain tones. I’m hoping Apple with further develop this, but we’ll see what happens.
All in all, the DAW is a nice upgrade from Logic Pro 8, but some features do leave you wondering why you paid so much for an upgrade. If you’re happy with Logic 8, stick with that. Otherwise, check out the upgrade. Flex Time has been a lifesaver for me, personally.
Kradukman's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent choice"
For 2 years now and before that I was in Logic 8 (which had a lot of bugs fixed in version 9)
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Before moving in Logic, I was a little fiddling Audacity, Garage Band and Soundtrack Pro especially. Subsequently, I also tested a bit Cubase, Ableton Live and Reaper.
- What is the particular feature you like best?
The design and ergonomics. Everything is pretty clear and easy to access in Logic 9. I also love the combo with Soundtrack Pro in editing mode to edit quickly certain sounds. Adding plug-in also with disconcerting ease (drag and drop ...). It is also possible to assign a controller midi (I use my numark omni control for all travel options and zoom). Automation is easily accessible throughout the software is fairly easy to handle. The recording preset is so cool (for effect, by track, by template, etc.)
- The least?
Management bus (especially the lack of control over a pre fader, post pan). The lack of track record (at least I have not found, and I found a kind not at all ergonomic equivalent). Adding color is also tedious. The lack of management plug-in VST, VST, RTAS.
- How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice? ...
The price / quality ratio is very honest. With experience, I probably would do this choice even though it is certainly possible to do so with Reaper is much cheaper (usually prevented me from having to migrate in Reaper).
korosif69's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" it is for months"
I have been using it out before I stay on the 8th.
Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I try Pro Tools, Nuendo, Cubase, Live, etc ...
What is the particular feature you like best and least?
-Ergonomics are all falls under the free, it is very well heal, you can even afford to work on a single screen.
There are a large number of plugs, synthesizer and samples with.
It is very stable and well maintenance cpu.
to the -
I'll love an interface a bit less cheap.
How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice? ...
logic is very good value for money as it comes in packaging with soundtrack pro, WaveBurner, mainstage which are very good tool.
yes I do it again this choice as primer have tried most DAW firewall is one that suits me the best barrier against the way I work.

cedart's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A recording tool efficient and intuitive!"
The ease of use is its greatest asset, and the instruments and effects, even if not all first quality, are still effective enough to make a good model.
Her little downside sound difference between the sound and the result of multi-Bounce, but it is the case of many software like this ... And this defect worsens with the number of tracks processed. A board made a first Bounce and Inject it into Logic and rework the sound bouncer again.
The value for money is excellent.
I would do this choice without hesitation ....
Calou2000's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent pack"
Before and long ago, I worked on Cubase (atari and mac), vision (opcode mac) protools, Musicmaker (pc, very nice and cheap way) obviously garageband.
I was looking for a Swiss Army knife software capable of editing midi / audio, and I was especially attracted by the richness of the offer plug-in (effects, virtual instruments, loops): 9 DVD if I remember correct. Software Mainstage, Soundtrack Pro are also part of the package.
Currently, you can load any software on the AppStore independently for a very attractive price.
What I like:
- Providing software and richness of sound library
- Ease of use from the earliest uses (I do not know anything about Logic)
- Stability, never crash, it is significant
- Latency ridiculous (even with the integrated sound card in my macbook 2011)
- Mainstage (provided you spend time to configure and you do not make the mistake of charging 10 times the same piano sound without using aliases)
I do not like:
uh ... nothing really annoying
- Arpeggiator that I wanted to use one day for a laugh, this is a little choppy. Logic is for musicians, not the guys who play arpeggios in triplets with a finger.
- I would love to find a nice function Musicmaker (Magix) to assign an effect to a track segment, without activating the full track, but we obviously can easily circumvent the problem.
- Some midi loops completely useless (I do not like working with loops anyway, except for the battery).
Quality / price excellent.
I would do without this choice problem.

Guh000's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" I found my sequencer"
Value / price ratio for Logic! I hesitated with Studio One which I think is not bad at all.
But I do not regret my choice.
I've worked with Cubase before.
Nothing to throw on Logic
Logic is a must intutif very, very powerful.
I would not change it for the world.
Go there with your eyes closed.
