G’day Peter! :-)
As I said in my private email, it’s great to see a familiar name here.
So that’s John Pitcairn, you and me and… gee, how many other people got into Max cos they got sick of the limitations of Logic’s Environment, and sick of waiting for Apple to fix and/or develop it?
The combination of Logic 8 (i.e. nothing new in the Environment except a couple of bugs) and Max 5 (i.e. MUCH easier to learn, etc. etc. etc.) did it for me.
Come on all you ex Logic tinkerers, own up! :-)
Hi Bill !
I am a Logic user , but maybe calling me a refugee would be a bit far fetched !!!
yes the enviroment in Logic is/was a pain in the ass !!!
I always hated logic manuals really really un-exiting to read !!! zzzz zzzzzzz zzzzzz (unlike the max manual which for me is beter then any agatha christie novels)
I never really used the enviroment deeply anyway !
I do like the big changes Apple has made into logic 8 , very stable and a breeze to use !!!!! and jeez the price now is a real bargain now !!!
I find using Logic’s environment in conjunction with Max to be very powerful. While I have my complaints about the environment as well, it still makes midi routing in Logic more flexible than any other DAW I’ve worked with.
That being said, I mostly use the environment as the last leg of a midi chain and don’t do too much serious processing with it these days. Thats what Max is for!
I have a bit of a different perspective as I never really got into the environment until just a couple of months ago although I’ve used Logic for sequencing since about 2004. I have been learning Max for almost two years now and I can say that working with Max actually made it so once I finally decided to figure out what was going on with the environment it turned out to be not near as daunting as it once seemed!
