Lily Allen "It's not me, it's you" 2009 -- Greg Kurstin producer. Done entirely in Logic.

Machine (The Producer) works in Logic. He did Lamb of God, Boys Night Out's "Trainwreck" (Editing was done in Pro Tools), Four Year Strong's awful cover album (in Logic) and Four Year Strong's anticipated release, which actually sounds pretty badass.

these days id say its very hard to find alot of stuff done entirely within one DAW. with different daws having different strenghts and weaknessess. many artists would use something like live to sketch out and throw together there songs before moving them into logic or PT..
most environments are the same and the amazing results you hear is the craftsmanship not the DAW

....apart from the bit where some of the tracks (at least) were mixed in PT.....wish people would stop quoting this album when they don't really know!

It really doesn't matter. Lots of tracks go backwards and forwards anyway.

Does it really matter?

but to answer your question:
Stephen Wilson & Porcupine Tree work in Logic. Anything he plays on, or produces, will be at least mixed in Logic.

Many major Hollywood film scores will have at least touched Logic (or DP) at some point.

All of the recent Porcupine Tree, as well as Opeth's albums Blackwater Park, Deliverance and Damnation. Steven Wilson is amazing and works in Logic, albeit Logic 7 DAE.

(Stephen Wilson lovefest )

also the forthcoming (?) surround releases of the King Crimson catalog.

Although I'm not a huge prog fan, I think that SW's mixes are top notch. thumbsup

No one is doing better these days.

...and both mixed from PT. This is such a pointless thread....just people guessing. Many (most?) top level programmers work in Logic. The vast majority of these tracks (the singles especially) are then ported to PT to be mixed.

I have a shrine to SW which I kneel before and pray before mixing.


But in all seriousness, he's what got me into this whole production lark. He's the reason I have Logic and a Mac and his music helps me keep the faith with regards to whats possible with digital recording. Porcupine Tree's albums are pretty much my favourite sounding records out of everything ever.

Whatever artists/producers are using to write music, score, or pre-produce is so over hyped. If it works for them, it will be used. The reality is this: 80% (or more) of the rooms, where 100% of today's hits are mixed, stock an SSL's and an HD rig. And engineer's will usually seek those rooms if the budget allows. Bottom line. That doesn't mean great records can't be done using other platforms. Especially if the artist or producer/engineer is particular to a different DAW. But for the most part, the above mentioned is just what most great mix rooms stock.

Some records are still recorded on tape. Ironic but, those are usually the ones that sound the best IMO. Go figure!

Jeff Beck's Live at Ronnie Scott's DVD/CD was mixed in Logic and the upcoming Death Cab for Cutie live DVD was mixed in 5.1 & stereo in Logic using a wack of outboard.

FWIW, Steven Wilson was using a hybrid Logic/Protools rig.
Protools hardware with Logic software (as did I until a month ago)

Yes, I completely agree.

Some of the writing/tracking was done in Logic, but that record spanned 2", ADAT, Logic and PT. The mixes by Tchad Blake were done in PT.

Greg Kurstin uses Logic exclusively -- he uses the stock plugins that come with Logic (Compressor, Channel EQ, Tape Delay, and Space Designer). He produces and mixes himself -- you are right though I did not realize that 2 of the 12 songs on "It's not me, it's you" were not mixed by him.

I am a big fan of Greg Kustin's work (I own all Bird and Bee albums) so I'm not just pulling this out of nowhere.

Just to be fair, let's assume the two tracks Kurstin didn't mix himself were mixed in Protools. I am looking at the liner notes here -- that means "Everyone's At It" and "Never Going to Happen". So 5/6 of the songs were mixed in Logic for sure -- and 1/6 were mixed in Protools. All of the songs were produced in Logic and used Logic virtual instruments, amp sims, etc.

Apple - Logic Studio - In Action - Greg Kurstin

And above is a link to an article on Greg Kurstin and Logic.

'cause it took them six years to finish it.

I quote Mr. Gabriel: "I tend to work rather slowly".

there's no need to assume - unless I'm mistaken, those 2 songs were mixed by spike stent (who mixes from PT).

plus you can't believe everything you read in Sound on Sound, or any other source.

Blumpy.

Apple - Pro - Profiles - Blumpy, p1

His past client list includes NIN, Filter, Marilyn Manson, Sevendust, Fuel, Kid Rock, etc... He recently started doing many things completely ITB with just Logic.

My band just did our entire album in Logic (Blumpy mastered it).

Another Steve Wilson fan here!!!

Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee used to have Logic in their home studio rigs.
Not sure what they use now days, though I think Alex used PT for mixing
the most recent Rush DVD's.

Roger Waters was quoted in an interview that he was using Logic for writing
some new material not long ago.

Dave Meegan who has worked with many artists over the years uses Logic
and has used it on at least two of Marillion's albums..."Anoraknophobia"
and my personal favorite, "Marbles"

Also: Reinhold Heil , with Johnny Kilmek (and Bruce Winter mixing) do their soundtrack work entirely within Logic. That includes Without a Trace, Perfume, Blood and Chocolate, and the International. They ditched HD to go with a Logic/RME system.

Personally I haven't noticed a change at all - electronic/pop writers and producers have always worked in logic (at least from V6 onwards), people have always programmed extra parts even if the main system is in PT. Still, almost everyone working in a commercial studio exports their tracks to PT to mix. Computer/future music's interviewees would almost always be in this category I should think. A change to Cubase/Sonar/whatever would be news, this report is to be expected. If they were interviewing a lot of rock or metal producers, I think it would be 9/10 PT users.

If anything, Logic is being used LESS by those who prefer to use PT but have previously used logic to program parts - with the advent of PT8, more availability of virtual instruments etc, people don't bother so much going backwards and forwards.

FWIW the "Logic Pro Users" part of the website can't be regarded as gospel - for example the coldplay article is quite a lot of marketing nonsense, that entire album was PT start to finish with just the odd bit of logic programming here and there (although markus does use Logic as well as PT himself).

I think 93% of statistics are made up on the spot.
