I'm new here and I hope I'm not duplicating an existing thread.This looks like the right forum to get the correct information to get started and down the road once I get rolling.
Like most of you, I have read and researched the Pro Tools vs. Logic Pro debate, funny how emotional people get about such things. I've pretty much decided upon Logic Pro. As a composer / musician the weight of opinion seems to favor Logic Pro, so here I am. I have some newbie questions, but that is how we learn. Yes?
As implied, I haven't actually purchased Logic Pro, I'm trying to determine what my basic system should look like when I do, which Mac is the ultimate performer for Logic Pro, etc.
From what I'm hearing and reading, the IMac seems to be it unless you need a laptop. Tell me if I'm wrong. It's OK to explain things to me like your chatting with, well, a rookie Mac user, which I essentially am. In fact I'm new to a purely computer based DAW system and have much to learn but do catch on quickly, so I like to think.
Knowing that I will want the full Logic Pro package, here we go, some basic questions:
What is the price for the full-on Logic Pro package? I've read $499 unless you download it from the Mac Store.
What would be the absolute best IMac configuration to go with?
What is the ball park price for such a configuration?
What would make for the best external storage device?
Any price info. on that would also be helpful.
