Logic Pro 9 Logic 9 Express, two questions

Hello everyone:

I am new to the user group (just registered today). So please forgive me if my questions

I am a recent convert to Mac. I bought myself a MacBook Pro and have already fallen in love with it. My next big move is going from PC-based ProTools to Mac-based Logic (on a working engineer/friend's recommendation). The budget going forward, however, is a little tight. Therefore, I have two questions re: Logic Express 9 that I'm having a hard time finding answers to-

1) Can Logic Express 9 eventually be upgraded to Logic Studio 9 for a lower price, or would I have to spend the whole $400-500 on a full version?

2) Propellerhead's website states that ReWire works with GarageBand and Logic, though it makes no specific mention of Logic Express. Will I be able to slave Reason to Logic Express using ReWire?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi there, welcome to the LUG

1) Can Logic Express 9 eventually be upgraded to Logic Studio 9 for a lower price, or would I have to spend the whole $400-500 on a full version?

You can indeed upgrade from Logic Express to Logic Studio, for roughly the difference in price between the two versions, 299 USD in the US Apple store.

2) Propellerhead's website states that ReWire works with GarageBand and Logic, though it makes no specific mention of Logic Express. Will I be able to slave Reason to Logic Express using ReWire?
I understand that you can, but have not tried this myself with LE, so am not speaking from experience.

kind regards
