    I'm trying to decide which way to go for a DAW. I'd appreciate any feed back at all.
    Thank you.

    Fwiw, I’ve been recording for like 20 years now, from 4 track to adats to Cubase, Pro tools, DP, Radar, etc...

    Logic x is just so damn good for actually making music, I can’t conceive of an argument to not go with it. That and a decent apogee interface, and you can turn out some excellent results.

    Check out their drummer feature, that alone should make you seriously consider it. Let’s say you want to cover a song. You simply enter the parts into the arrangement track (into,verse,chorus,verse,chorus,outro) and click create drummer. Boom, there’s drums for the whole song, fills, cymbal changes, everything. A real time saver. From there you can tweak all you want, or not.

    it also comes with a good selection of decent sounding instruments, as well as useful loops.

    Well worth the money imo.


    good luck

    Ps, don’t use usb interface with new macs. There are some issues you’ll want to look into.

    Thank you. I'd heard there were issues with the new Mac Book Pros. I didnt know what they were.
    That's the reason for my question.

    Long time Mac user here. I would highly recommend one and Logic Pro X as well as many other free or cheap audio apps and plugins. New MacBooks use USB C and I hate not being able to connect my work computer to almost anything without an adapter. This might be related to these rumored issues with usb interfaces, but I can’t imagine an interface vendor not addressing this. I like Focusrite best. Drop them an email if you are concerned.

    No problem! I was lazy and just googled. Plenty of people say you can just use a cheap USB adapter to hook up a USB C mac to any audio/midi interface. PC or Mac, like I said I do like Focusrite interfaces. I started with a Steinberg and while it was fine, I noticed a definite increase in audio quality (guitars and mics) with the Focusrite. It is pretty amazing what you can do with a computer these days and music. The old idea of a computer being any other machine is certainly true when it comes to music. Have fun!

    Windows, Cubase, PreSonus fan for over a decade until about 5 years ago. Now it’s iPad, Focusrite or IK, and a myriad of inexpensive good apps that I string together as needed. Very much a modular approach to a DAW.

    IMO, there is no point going usb for your interface. If you’re going Mac, get a thunderbolt interface. You will not regret getting a professional level interface (I recommend the apogee element series). Great conversion, low latency, stable drivers.

    if you cheap out here, you will run into headaches.
