Hehe - Hans seems to be one of the people that was expecting the moon on a stick with Logic 8 - and then getting dissapointed when he didn't get that.

No, it's not the perfect app, no it doesn't radically rethink every concept in the DAW world, and no, it doesn't include Melodyne, Vocalign and iZotope Radius functionality built-in.

But it *is* significantly better than Logic 7, it's a much slicker app, and the workflow improvements are superb.

It's a great update, imo.

And as for Logic 7 and Logic 8 mixes cancelling out, he seems to think that's an indication that Logic 8 isn't improved. It could just as well indicate that Logic 7 wasn't broken in the first place. ;)

The core of Logic's engine had to be reworked to support sample accurate editing and improved project lengths, due to the way it was implemented in the past.

But expecting Logic to be rewritten from scratch in a couple of years, *and* including new complex DSP features and aradical design-rethink when Logic 7 had at least 150+ man-years of work in it is, well, expecting the moon. :)

Logic was always a great and powerful app, despite it's idiosyncracies. Now, it is even better, and now the core stuff is done and released, let's see what cool stuff the dev team can come up with on the shiny new platform.

Rock on Apple I say! Logic has never felt more inspiring...

I found this show especially entertaining, a little toilet humour goes a long way (all the way to the coast, in fact) I am just dloading show 61, I am looking forward to listening to that on the way to work tomorrow.

Has it occurred to anyone that the missing features that people were expecting in Logic 8 have been available in Digital Performer since version 3.11?
