Yeah, if they're not on the same network, you can run two copies. That's not realistic for production houses though, so you know, being honest and all...

Yes. Yes it does. And phantom power for the pres.

While it's not my cup of tea, it's a great addition for a highly marketable mobile interface.

LOL, I was almost going to post: "a midified duet?"
but I can't find any midi ports on it.
maybe I missed something
an RME ff400 might do the trick, in a 1u rackmount with a mac mini?

Multi-function controller knob for volume and input gain control and assignable MIDI control
- that means the knob is sending midi over the firewire, doesn't it?

I say this to you (like I would to my wife.)

You're right.
I'm wrong.
I'm sorry.

I usually add "I love you" but since you're not wearing the band, I'll skip that one.

No Midi I/O on the duet. Little ovesight on my part and Apogee's I think.

Fireface 400 it is for those folks.

Overall, L8 sounds "better" than v7....which I know is a subjective call...but I'm sure that others will concur".


I have read a couple of other posts that say Logic sounds 'better' for want of a more fitting term...

Please, now that it's released, someone in the know, shed some light on this? I need this bloody feature.

The only other solution has been the expert sleepers plug, which I feel is just strange and what's more, it doesn't seem like it works all the time and I have to re-adjust it to get rid of audible phasing. A real time killer.
true. check page 852 of the manual for the proposed way of dealing with this.
my guess, we'll have to "ping" ourselves and compensate manually..

also the volume push button isn't my thing. set volume L push button to go to channel R, accidentally move volume a notch, notice, push again to return to channel L, accidentally move volume channel R too a notch in the process, adjust volume L, push button more carefully to go to channel R, etc. etc..... etc.
edit: stereo would of course be handled with asigning it to stereo channels
plus, breakout cable for... eeh better ergonomics??
eeeh ehmmmm.... ja....

I got it this morning... it's not THAT different from 7 internally... visually it's got a pretty makeover.

It's got the nice features from PT, like the TC/E tool, but that tool still uses the logic time stretching algorithm, and doesn't allow stretches more than 50%...

I haven't been able to find any sensitivity control for the tab to transient, but it's certainly nice to have it.

It came with all of the GB jam packs, and takes up a good 36Gb ish... it's massive.

It opens all of my Logic 7 sessions so far, and haven't had any real problems.

The only new plugin I've messed with so far is the tap delay, it's certainly neat, but nothing to write home about. The sample accurate editing in the arrange window is great though...

that's what they're aiming for, obviously.
but I'd like my hardware sequencer (with midi out) to control mainstage (on stage)

and I know more ppl. would, since MPCs and Logic aren't best of friends for example.

If that's the case, they've really missed the bloody boat. Wouldn't be the first time, Apple.

Remember that you can install Serato Pitch n' Time and Izotope Radius into Time and Pitch Machine and use those for the Timestretching.

I'd assume that Apple was assuming that everyone's just going to use a USB midi controller keyboard. Not true, but that's probably the assumption.
that's what i'd assume too. for the ozone + powerbook set.

True enough,



my biggest issue is that the Delay Compansation is still as messed up as in 7, and hasn't been worked on at all....

tdm / rtas etc

Can anyone verfy the TDM RTAS AS support.
i have some audiosuite and tdm plugs i can run in PTools LE (vocalign) but it appears you can only use these if you have the PTools HD version - is that true.

there are some RTAS AS TDM only plugs I would love to use
