Logic equivalent for Windows

I have been using Logic Pro for about 2 years on my macbook, and words can't explain how much I love it lol.

BUT, I just bought a PC (for video editing purposes) but I also want to use it for Audio Production... So what would be the closest thing to logic for a PC? Another question is im also using an Apogee Duet, so i would need a PC equivalent for that as well.

I don't mind buying protools hardware if I have to make the switch to Protools.

You bought a PC for video editing purposes???

Shouldn't that be the other way around?


Cubase would probably be your best bet....

Cubase, hands down.

PC for video? Sure! I used to edit video and did a bunch of pro work on a PC.

The PC I set up with Samplitude has latencies below 10us and I haven't even tweaked it for audio. It's based on an Intel E8500 Core 2 Duo, 4 gb of Corsair ram, and windows XP. The Apple guys just got a bunch of suckers that's all who don't mine forking over rediculous amounts of money for nothing spectatcular. If people stay off the internet and use your DAW strictly for recording purposes, they wouldn't have half the problems they have. I built my system including the RME 9632 and the Dell 22" display for around $1300.

way to generalize.

I have both pc and mac, and I just simply prefer osx to windows. has nothing to do with me being a sucker. thank you.

I'd say Cubase. If you have a PC for vid editting then make sure your graphic card isn't loud.

Hey thanks guys, yeah by looking at a few pics/videos of Cubase I see that its the closest thing to Logic I could find.

And the reason why i bought a PC is because my work uses Sony Vegas + After Effects. I personally prefer Final Cut Studio, but I know my boss isn't willing to switch over all the computers to a Mac.

And my graphics loud is sort of loud but Ive put my PC inside one of them sound insulated cabinets, cant hear a dam thing :D

Bet that. If you are the video editor why does everyone else need Macs? Are u on a team?

U should've passed on your computer expenses to the company and spec'd out a top of the line PC for video editting and pass on all cost of audio and video production to the company.

Yeah I am not the only video editor there, and there is also a bunch of 3D modelling artists who all work with 3ds Max (windows only). So my boss thinks if PC's are doing the job then why upgrade?

Can't say that I agree with him, but hey, as long as he pays me I couldn't care less lol.

why not just use logic 5 pc version and try and find a copy you can legaly buy - perhaps s/h on ebay?


sure it's not got the new bits of more recent logic version but has track automation and everything is the same as u are used to for the editor windows and arrange page etc, and u can load songs u made into logic on mac if required

so why not just use logic 5.5 pc?

No offense to the Mac guys,but imho,MACs are an"elitist thing"
The op system changes according the "pussy of the month".
Ill stick to my super maxed PCs.

I'm running Samplitude Pro and Magix Video Pro X for video editing on PC.
If you're attached to using the Mac, then you can also use bootcamp.

Cubase 5 is great. I also run Sony Vegas 9.0 on my PC and it's awesome. Nothing wrong with doing video editing on a PC, despite what some may say.

Vegas Pro is great for video. And PC only. I installed Vista bootcamp on my MacBook to run it there also.
