These L9 guitar amps and stomp boxes lock you into Logic or Mainstage on a Mac. I'd rather do this with the hardware boxes or 3rd party software and have the freedom to stomp away with or without logic.
It seems short sighted to rely on plugins which are only available in Garage Band or Logic Studio. While I solely use Logic at the moment, that may not be true in the future. You would surely want your plugins to be transportable to whatever your current DAW is. So I would be inclined to avoid plugins which the developer designs to be Logic only.
I'm too much of a swinger Markdvc, to stick with one software for life
I've written a fair amount of articles on tube amps, and I'm basically a "t00b snob" at heart.
But the thing is, eventually you want to actually get some work done
I'm kind of curious to get your take on the new Amp Designer and Pedal Board plugins - given your expertise in the area. How do you like them compared to some of the other "flagship" guitar processing software tools around? And how about compared to hardware?
Why should they? You wouldn't buy another hardware device right now just because it is available. The GS-10 meets your requirements. If you want you can use only one or none of Logics amps and you can try the virtual cabinets alone with the GS-10. The new possibilities do not force you to change your sound, they just give you more options.well they sound mighty fine I think but they're not going to make me wanta stop using my Boss GS-10 for guitar recording, however.

I have actually downloaded all the PDF files for the complete Logic Pro 9 Manual from the Apple Logic 9 References web site page. I then assigned them to their proper folders so that people know where to look for specific user files. IOW, it's the complete Logic 9 manual. I am currently trying to make arrangements for these to be shared. If Logic Users Group would like these files (120MB) to make available to subscribers, let me know.
