Overall Satisfaction with Logic Pro X

I use Logic Pro X to edit and mix sound for promotional and explainer videos, and compose original music (primarily for video music tracks). This involves importing or recording narration, adding music and sound effects, mixing (often to picture via the movie feature), then exporting to Adobe Premiere. Logic Pro X is a comprehensive platform that handles all aspects of audio post production for us.
  • Incredible breadth of features... it feels like there's literally nothing the program can't do
  • Time stretching... amazing features to change tempo and length with adding sonic weirdness of pitch changes
  • Vast library of virtual instruments and effects included in purchase
  • File management for underlying resources (samples, etc.) is complex
  • Importing and exporting different sound/music formats
  • Easy, powerful sound editing and mixing
  • Lots of virtual instruments and effects to create simple soundtrack music
  • Powerful sound tools, centralized in one place for relatively very little money (when we purchased it, it was $200/user for a perpetual license)
  • Simplified workflow, since we handle all our sound needs in one place
  • We used to do our sound editing and mixing in Adobe Premiere, right along with the video. Moving sound production to FPX has DRAMATICALLY improved the quality of our soundtracks.
I have limited experience with Pro Tools. The breadth of features is probably similar in both platforms. But I find Logic Pro X to have the edge in the effects and virtual instruments it offers out of the box, it's ease-of-use and coherent workflow, and most importantly, it's incredibly low price and high value.

Do you think Logic Pro X delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Logic Pro X's feature set?


Did Logic Pro X live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Logic Pro X go as expected?


Would you buy Logic Pro X again?


We use to LPX to produce "down-and-dirty" musical snippets to serve as soundtracks for short explainer and marketing videos. As these are generally done for the tech industry, the tracks skew towards electronica and don't have to be particularly innovative or unusual sounding. FPX is brilliant for this -- out of the box, the vast collection of instruments and effects make it really easy to just layout cool-enough background music. The "Drummer" feature is especially helpful, as it instantly gives the music a custom drum track.

We also do simple sound editing... mostly just timing out voice over and limited sound effects to picture (which you can do in FPX), and mixing it to background music. While FPX might not be the best tool for really complex editing/mixing, is more than adequate for our purposes.
