Personally I don't think that's playing devils advocate. One way to corner a market is to sell low and use your brand. It's just a bit dicey when your 'brand' is the OS that your competitors run on.

I've never bought into the notion that Logic is a loss leader, $200 is the price of almost every major DAWs upgrade cost, initially it might be 4-600, but a good portion of any DAWs sales are to existing users. Simple math really, Logic costs $200 for every version, no upgrades, so in the end it's about the same cost as other DAWs.

After years of asking I would still like a pref that create all new sends to the off position. Keep the double click for unity though. This would save customers. I know one engineer who moved to ProTools over this. Well, and certain setups when opening new projects which preserve previous project plugs and tracks / different tune. Bye Larry!

Oh, 100MM faders for me please. :-)

If you have access to the Edu store like being a parent of a student (this is new), the Pro Apps Bundle is $199 and includes Logic, Final Cut Pro, Main Stage and a couple more. This was announced in March.

Where is the Pro Support that goes with these "Pro Apps"? It's free money for Apple.

iWork, GarageBand and other apps used to be paid. Now all are free as are OS updates.

As Apple devalues their software, it reinforces the notion that it's only purpose is to sell hardware.

Logic has its uses. For me, I'm sometimes asked to finish projects started in it or GarageBand. If I ever needed AutoTune again, it can be automated in Logic, unlike DP. The idea of ever starting or finishing a project in it .... no, I have a real Pro App for that.

The post inspired me to rewrite it for the Tips Sheet, so I did, and it's now a much better post than the one I wrote here, so I'm deleting the parts of this post that are not related to the OP's questions or comments. Go to the Tips Sheet, page 11 for the "Turbo Tips" that were originally here.

Thanks for taking the time to post that, and for all of your thoughtful posts!
