    are you choosing between PT and Logic?

    If thats the case, I think you should go for a Mbox 2 and PT 8.0. Has to be most bang for the buck! A lot of basic instrument and plugins as well.

    I run logic nowadays, but I am keeping my protools anyway, because there are somethings that I like more with PT.


    Either way you cant go wrong, but I think that PT gives more for the money when you start from 0.

    IMHO

    Logic = Better for writing and arranging.
    Pro Tools = Better for Recording editing.

    Logic is a bit more pricey I think but with its MIDI capabilities score editor its a little better when you are writing your own music. It will also work with basically any interface where Pro Tools is proprietary.

    Pro Tools I want hands down if I'm engineering for another band. The looping, editing and recording functions just make more sense in Pro Tools I think. Tab to transient and beat detective are unmatched tools for editing.

    It all depends on what your doing.

    Devoted Logic user here gonna give a +1 for Logic. I like not being tied to specific hardware, and especially for someone starting out it's nice to be able to explore a bit. You can buy cheaper things in small amounts, rather than having to save up a grand before you can even get started. If you're a student, you might be able to get Logic at your school for an even cheaper educational discount.

    But I agree, it depends what you're planning on doing. Only need a two tracks of input (recording mostly guitar/vocals) and want something that's easy and straight forward, go with a protools/mbox set up. But if you want to be able to hook up 8 channels+ on the cheap and record full bands or experiment with lots of writing and arranging, go for Logic.
