I hate Logic but I love Protools

We have the

"I hate Protools but I love Logic" thread .

Just thought Id open the dialog from the other end of the table.

I use Ableton/ Logic /Protools/logic for what I like and do not have a favorite.

Ableton is fun and the looping is incredible.

Protools functionality is pretty straight forward IMO and I like that

Logic does so much in so many ways but it's kind of layered in a sauce of features or functionality at times...I find

HA! Don't think you'll find too many of these. Most PT users would acknowledge that Logic would be a good backup, if they're on Apple.

I know that when PT11 is completely obsolete for me, i won't pay a subscription and will jump ship to Logic.

If I ever 'jump ship' from Pro Tools (unlikely since it's the defacto format that everything comes in on and goes out on, everywhere I work and with all the clients I work for) it sure won't be to Logic.

The main reason being that Logic is just too "different" from Pro Tools. Every time I look at it, it's like looking at a magazine written in Chinese. If the magazine was in French or Spanish at least I might be able to pick out some Latinate word forms here and there....

I would think Digital Performer or Cubase are programs I could get up to speed much quicker if I had to. But then again, I wouldn't consider a subscription cause for a "have to".

Agree. Haven’t used logic since the 90’s, but it seemed at least to me,as complicated as ****. Also ugly and cluttered. Protools all the way for me.

Hate to say it as I started this thread but I use Live /Logic/ Protools . Protools has been on the back burner . The only thing I really really love Protools for is if I need to correct any timing errors where needed if the overall take of a drummer is good BUT a bar or beat needs to be moved or slipped in milliseconds. I'm fluid in PT . I don't grid drums by default but protools seems made for the task.
