I just called and found out that the CA stores might be receiving it this afternoon.

Also, Academic versions are NOT upgradeable.

Well that's totally TRUE for sure! Who's gonna pay for those apps if they have maybe even half of what this Apple bundle is offering! If this Logic is killing stable with killing plugs and effects, I'll buy it right away!

Holly ****!

But how, the only difference between Logic 7 and Logic 7 Academic is the XSKey, if we don't use it anymore how the upgrade installor will see we have an Academic version?

Should we plug the XSKey just for make the upgrade?

MacDeskPro coming Dec 24th or April 1st 2008 heh heh heh

Hopefully they reinvented the audioengine to improve it's quality! Then I really think about buying it! Also a nice idea to make it a bit cheaper at all it seems to be a better bundle but not too much hot new features! Where is elastic audio? Where is a real hot Piano, and the improved EPianos? Where are the features that turn the EXS24 into something like Kontakt 2?

I just got flooded with a TON of information on the new product when I came into the office.

This is a brand new audio application suite that includes:
• Logic Pro 8 - Powerful Music Creation designed for musicians... new redesigned interface and editing tools provide extreme ease of use.
• Soundtrack Pro 2 - Full featured audio post production tool for film & video, and amazing sound design, editing and sound restoration
• MainStage - Brand new application for using virtual instruments and effects (Logic's and AU) in a live performance setting.
• Studio Instruments & effects - 40 virtual Instruments and 80 effects, many with True Surround capability
• Studio Sound Library - Includes entire Final Cut 2 sound library, new Logic channel strips, and 5 complete Jam Pack libraries
• Production Utilities:
• Waveburner for CD mastering
• Compressor 3 for encoding Dolby Digital Professional AC-3 files in 2.0 or 5.1 formats (and others)
• Impulse Response Utility for capturing the acoustics of real performance spaces

I can't believe the upgrade prices are so low...

The craziest thing is it's available TODAY!

There was elastic audio in LP7 as long as it was recorded in Logic. Although not sure about 8. But, the time compression/expansion looks nice in the video on Apple's website. I like how the waveform graphically adjusts in realtime as you adjust the region boundaries.

the old timestretching algorithms were not so hot IMO sounded worse then the ones in digital performer, cubas and live and million times worse than melodyne!

I actually DON'T like that it's $500 cheaper. That sends a red flag.

I was about to buy the Waves Api bundle... That's gonna have to wait... Let's see what these Logic fans have been raving about.

Also, No INSTRUMENTS/FX overview on the Apple site? Am I missing it?

$499? Cheaper than a freakin' iPhone? Scandalous!
