I have project studio in my house and I can tell you that $50 for Auria is absolutely nothing when you consider the cost of other studio equipment and software. For instance Nuendo 5.5 runs well over $2,000. It's amazing what Auria can do for the money, I'm afraid that it now makes Garageband seem like a toy and Apple needs to revamp it completely. GB is great for putting down song ideas quickly though.
