Well Im finally taking the plunge and moving over to ProTools full time.I ve just spent the best part of three weeks pulling my hair out. Logic 9 with DAE just was not working for me-the speed of the operations was just beyond a joke! It was taking 10 seconds before the TDM plugins appeared when I clicked on the insert on the mixer page-I mean honestly! All I have to do now is just convert my EXS 24 library into Kontakt 4 and then Im ready to go-What will I miss? Frankly Fueckall!!! I ve been sick to death of.... where do I start? Im sure lots of you on here can familiarise with 1-Waiting for AudioSuite Soundtoys Speed to lock to the host tempo-I d been waiting for this since 2003! 2.Having to reboot logic after Serato Pitch N Time did its thing for a while in Audiosuite then created DAE errors(It never did in ProTools) 3. Never having the VSL tool working correctly in the EXS24 editor(this vienna thing was a nightmare and cost me over Â£1500!) 4. Having the ESB bridge causing all my au instruments to distort at a lower bit rate and sometimes having to reboot(which took about 8 minutes on my G4) 5. Having plugins opening up with a blank screen ie Waves SSL TDM bundle-E Series channel-Waves kept blaming Apple and refused to fix it! 6. Not being able to use my 02R96 control surface in Logic with DAE-The Yamaha use to freak when I inserted a TDM plugin-Yet it worked 100% in ProTools! 7. Having the bloody think just quitting without any warning and not autosaving whilst I was editing in the arrange page 8. The spinning ball of death!!!! 9. The Error message-Your farm cards are maxxed out DAE error!!!Even when they weren't! I was there there through PC Windows 98SE Windows XP etc OSX 10.2 Jaguar 10.3 Panther 10.4 Tiger 10.5 Leopard 10.6 Snow Leopard and quite frankly I tolerated a lot...I bought every single upgrade in existence-I spent thousands over the years-Long before Apple began giving the blooody thing away for free with every new mac......I was promised fixes which never came....I still believe the best version of logic with DAE (for me anyway) was logic 7.2.1 with ProTools 7.2.3 DAE on OSX 10.4.8 on a PPC G4-But hey this system was rendered obsolete back in 2007-New software instrument manufacturers ie Refx and Arturia were not aiming their products to anyone using less than a mac intel- I could go on but I ve lost patience already Im actually gonna miss some of the logic features but ProTools will do just as good a job and probably ten times better-Im looking forward to Shiettloads more firepower with the RTAS facilty! and a much more solid and reliable platform. Im also very very very impressed with some of these air instruments which come as standard-I love the B3 organ-The Mini Grand-The Structure playback unit-The synths etc-Every missing synth in logic can quite easily be replaced in ProTools with an alternative instrument-Its just such a shame these two great bits of software could not be made to work together in harmony. Anyone wanna buy my copy of logic 9 upgrade? I shall not be needing this again-Also I have a white apple key for sale with EPIC TDM authorizations VSL tool authorization Logic 6 and 7 authorizations-In fact all of the Emagic and Apple authorizations upto logic 8-It will be on ebay as from tomorrow. Sorry for this rant-Im pisssed of to say the least-Of course I am But am Optimistic about the future with ProTools!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
