    Do You Use Logic + Reason or Logic as a Standalone?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Anyone out there move from using Reason to Logic? I got a copy of Logic Studio 9 that came with a used Macbook that I bought off of somebody. I've been using Reason + Live but am feeling Logic after my man who sold me the Macbook showed me what it can do. One thing that he menioned is that I won't need Reason any more if I'm using Logic.

    I'm interested in hearing from producers out there that use Logic and Reason or from people that left Reason all together after switching to Logic. I'd like to know why you kept both or why you fully migrated to Logic from Reason.

    Thanks in advance.
    Started producing on and off as a hobby late 2009 and now about to take it a little more serious.

    When I was researching about different software for producing, I chose Logic because it pretty much has everything you need in one program. Reason is really good as well for making music, but you still have to get Record to, of course, record =D.

    You can't go wrong with either one, all of them are really great tools. Its just a matter of learning how to use them and making something out of them. I would just rather do everything in one program, instead of switching to another one for different purposes.

    there is always the reason record duo package which is still $100 cheaper than logic if u want to go that route and its all in one program or rewire reason to whatever also. just kinda adding to this concept

    Thanks for the response guys. Any people out there that went from Reason to Logic? I'm curious to see how many people Logic totally replaced Reason for and how many still use Reason by rewiring it into Logic.

    Thanks again.

    Hi, If you can afford it get them both. They both have there differences but put together you won't have to spend another dime on any DAW ever again. If you want refills for Reason is just about all you'll ever have to spend if you want to. To boot Logic is now 64-bit ---makes doing the job go faster than ever. Logic rocks. Most people get a bit taken back at all there is to it. 9.1.7 didn't miss a beat with this upgrade.
    Reason and Logic together you'll have it all.

    when it comes right down to having to make a choice Logic rules. It works with any other DAW out there. " the environment " in Logic can use any piece of gear you have in your studio it's just a matter of setting it up correctly.

    Rock on

    Logic 9

    Hi, sorry to hear your frustration. First it is 64-bit not 32 it but you can adjust to use 32 bit. Any midi device will solve most of your issues. The device made by Apogee the GIO was specifically designed for this software which surpasses Pro Tools. Many will argue this but those who have been using Logic since it's inception will tell you there is nothing Pro tools can do that Logic Studio cannot do and more. macprovideo.com is an excellent place to start as they were the original designers of the software and produce great video instruction in all areas of Logic pro 9.1.7. and MainStage. Efficient use of ram and amount is important and hard drive space. Apogee's GIO will solve over half of your problems if not more. Logic Pro can incorporate any DAW on the market into it through the newly added AUX channel. macprovideo.com and the forum will get you up and running in no time. This is a top of the line software package so if your expecting a push a button and all is setup and you want quality this is not the package for you. Some of the top Hollywood producers and recording artists use Logic Pro from initial recording techniques to mastering. Nine inch nails not one of my favorite bands it is all they use for all they do. :-) Also the new Axiom pro with Hyper Control is an excellent midi device which has the ability to incorporate the use of IPAD the gains made by Logic Pro continue. Watch some videos on you tube from Nine Inch Nails and others and see for yourself. Oh you can incorporate Reason right into Logic pro as stated above and ANY DAW on the market.

    Peace
