Logic 6 Platinum, the last version of logic i will ever upgrade to, do to apples total lack in understanding of the music technology industry. The fact they discontinued it on the PC is amazing! They just cut off a very large number of loyal users who won't just go buy a powermac on a whime! Logic on both platforms is the most stable sequencer I have ever used. OSX with logic 6 is a dream. But I wont be shelling out for logic 7 anytime soon... Apple is going to have to convince me to trust them into using a program that could very easly be turned into a part of final cut pro. Which would be a shame period! Emagic I will miss you, Please note, I use logic one both PC and mac, so I really have no biase.

Dispite its rather steep learning curve, there really is no rival in the market as it stands. It does what any other DAW can and has much of its own to offer.
The plug-ins are exceptional and to me, I find the system as a whole to be much more of an open canvas, creatively-speaking, than ProTools. If computer based composition is your thing, there is not much competition out there. Let's face it, ProTools is not for everyone, especially those who wish to compose via the computer, instead of using it solely as an HDR.
Other programs do come close, particularily DP4, however, in my opinion they still appear to be mere approximations to what I really need when composing. The instruments alone have convinced me that the purchase of another synth is redundant. I have found the only things that are needed in addition to this program to be controllers, Apogees and a decent monitoring system (i.e. Blue Sky). Love this.

so of course the fields SonicState has don't really tell the whole story on Logic. One bad thing -- Apple/Emagic dropped PC support. But a good thing is the Logic has a bunch of virtual instruments and effects built in, which are turned on by paying $100-$350 for these various features. The virtual instruments are really quite good. 3 come for free in Platinum, but the ones you'll want to buy include EXS24 a rockin' sample player and ES2, a totally cutting edge synth. It's rock solid and hasn't yet crashed on me, even with 20-30 tracks of audio and midi. You'll want to buy a lot of RAM though and have a good amount of free hard disk space if your work is intensive.
