If the next Logic update includes solely bug fixes I´d be the happiest guy.

Perfectly right!

I was a PT head for years until, in uni at the time, a lecturer encouraged me to give Logic a go. I can't say I found the learnin curve very steep, it's not worse then any other DAW, but the sound quality of the plug-ins that come with it, miles better, and I found myself being able to make Logic 'sing' much faster with them, not having to worry about combatibility during backups is a major pro in my books then too

Just some of the things Logic 8 is behind in:

- audio warping (like Cubase and ProTools)
- headphone mix and control room monitoring (as in Cubase/Nuendo)
- multi-timbral instruments (handled better in almost all the competitors)
- automatic delay compensation (buggy... no ping feature as in Cubendo)
- MIDI timing (buggy, non delay compensated, worse than previous Logic versions)
- file handling/data management (you can't name record files/paths like in L7!)
- surround features
- SMPTE scoring (no picture lock, buggy beat/tempo-mapping, no 'cue' features like DP)
- stability (at least, behind PT and Cubendo in my opinion)
- support (PT and even Steinberg offer more communication and active support than Apple's misguided code of silence).

I'm still using Logic. Still making music and a living with it. But it IS falling far behind.

That's why they reduced the price. So people would at least feel better paying less for an unsupported product that lacks many now-standard "pro" features.

Just my 2 cents... waiting patiently for L9! Or 10...

Have your tried OMF or AAF for going into Logic, or BWV for PT? I've been sending projects to a PC/Nuendo guy via OMF. The only hangup so far is that I have to pull multiple takes into new tracks, since they don't show up if I export a OMF with the multiple takes buried in one track. With OMF you have a lot of options in the export dialogue box, so it might take a couple of tries before you get it right.

It still amazes me that PT won't import OMF files without a $500 add on. What a bunch of weenies!

I would really just like

- Elastic audio/audio snap type feature
- External Hardware Latency Compensation
- No crashing/freezing
- Also oddly I'd like to be able to drag regions beyond the length of the actual audio file
because there are small clicks every time an audio region starts when using duende

Otherwise I really like the look of Logic more than any other Daw right now. Pro tools now looks to me like dinosaur software.

Really? To me, PT8 looks similar to Logic Pro 8 in terms of 'contemporary non-dinasour' GUI design.
