  1. True. The entire download for Logic Pro with absolutely everything included was 16GB I think. Funnily enough, since my last post I’ve been playing with the inbuilt Drummer app. It always sounded good in GarageBand but it’s on another level in LP because you can convert Drummer regions to MIDI if you wish, and therefore edit every single beat if needed. The real test for me will be recording, mixing and mastering an entire song in LP. Whilst I’ve done this in Cubasis, despite my best efforts, the quality was simply not good enough to be ‘release ready’. One of the real issues was drums, although that certainly wasn’t the only problem. I’m hopeful I can produce a track that’s every bit as good as I can manage in Studio One + all my VST plugins, but we will see.
  2. I’ve been using this for the past couple of days. It’s absolutely brilliant. Complete game changer and if you’ve used Cubasis 3 on the iPad, this is in a different league, there is simply no comparison. The quality of the inbuilt instruments and FX are top notch and I’ve spent thousands on VSTs and sound libraries over the years! The organisation and workflow is all logical to me. Things like Scaler 2 and GeoShred work perfectly. I miss EZ Drummer 3, and EZ Keys 2, but who knows, perhaps this will spur Toontrack and others to port to iOS.
  3. @Reid Rosefelt great post! At present I am away from my desktop studio for periods of time, and during those times, I get my fix from iPad music making. It certainty has its strengths, but for what they call on the Audiobus forum ‘traditional linear songwriters’ (that’s me!) it is still pretty weak. I use Cubasis, it’s sort of OK, reasonably solid and I’m grateful it’s there, but it’s like stepping back 15 years or more on a desktop. There is also a real need for a great acoustic drums package like EZ Drummer. I’ve tried hard to produce songs on my iPad to a standard I would be happy to ‘release’. Not yet managed to get past a decent demo to be honest, and have had to redo these pieces in Studio One once I am back in my studio. So, I am hoping Logic Pro will fill that gap to a large extent. That all said, making music on an iPad is great fun and I love it - it’s just different. Riffler, AUM, Drambo, GeoShred, almost anything by 4Pockets…I could go on and on, these are amazing apps. And if you already have an iPad, it’s so cheap to dive in and see if you like it!
  4. Not available in Spain yet, but I reckon they start work at 9am in Sweden - I’ll give it another 2 minutes
  5. Just wanted to say I loved Merry Maggie! I only have Indigenous Electric Guitar, and the sounds are awesome. Switching between articulations can be a bit fiddly sometimes I find.
  6. Ha ha I’m looking forward to tomorrow! Are folks relying on the Toontrack videos to find their way around? They are informative but I can’t stand the way that they come across as ‘sales’ videos, even though I’ve already bought it! Maybe it’s just me but I would rather listen to Eli Krantzberg over on Groove 3 any day 😂. And I appreciate that it will probably all be pretty intuitive but when I buy new software I like to know it inside out! I’ve used EZ Keys in so many of my songs over the years - whenever I’ve thought - this is a decent song, but it needs something else, 9 times out of 10, EZ Keys has been the answer. So yeah, should be fun diving in!
  7. The sub thing is a worry - I know it’s only £5 or $5 a month, but these things mount up.
  8. A significant part of the internet is in meltdown over Apple’s announcement that Logic Pro is being ported to the iPad: Logic Pro on iPad Just wondered if this is exciting to anyone else here? I spend a fair amount of the time I have for music on an iPad these days, and I think this is huge news! I can see many other software developers feeling the need to port their products as a result. If this is too off topic, please feel free to shift or delete!
  9. I will continue to wean myself off Waves irrespective of this announcement.
  10. It’s funny, I get “Jethro Tull” mentioned more than any other band when they hear my stuff. It’s not deliberate, but those influences are deeply embedded!
  11. Great professionally produced track. I loved the sax solo, but the whole thing has got a great rolling vibe going on. As a boy I spent many a holiday at Lyme Regis with my parents back in the 60s and early 70s. All those fossils on the beach. Lovely theme for a lyric, I really enjoyed this.

    Hi all I’d like to share a track from my last album, Predetermined. The album was leaning to towards “concept” territory, but I hope this one stands up on its own, musically at least. Track: To find his Home And a link to the album if anyone’s interested…loved collaborating with my graphic designer on this one 🙂 Predetermined
  15. I’ve not been on the forum much recently, but I do remember listening to a couple of great songs of yours a while back. How much fun is this? Great listen and I can almost hear the fun you had making it! It’s also highly original, which takes some doing. Love it!
