Logic Pro for Windows

Once upon a time Pro Tools ruled the DAW kingdom but these days Logic Pro has become the weapon of choice for both Pro and home studios. With it's amazing array of plugins and easy workflow it's clear why both pro's and hobbyists choose Logic Pro.


Unfortunately though, Logic is only designed to work on a mac and if you haven't got a couple of thousand dollars spare and you already own a PC then what are you to do? Fortunately there are workarounds to this problem which I will be discussing in detail in several articles.

Firstly though, let me impart some of my own wisdom about DAWS in general, the truth of the matter is that most modern DAWS have very similar functionality and the ability to produce high quality audio, so in a sense you are spoilt for choice. Having used many of the professional offerings and entry level products I can say that in reality you can produce great results with any of them. It's really a case of what you are used to and in many cases changing to another set up doesn't make much sense, in that the learning curve will likely inhibit your ability to quickly produce good results.

That said, Logic Pro has some unique functionality that really helps to get you to the end of a mix session quickly and hassle free. As an example, selection based processing, which allows you to apply specific effects to a selected segment of a track. So, if that kind of functionality appeals to you, then Logic Pro may indeed be the ideal DAW for you.

Furthermore, if you are unhappy with what you are producing currently, it's very possible that the DAW isn't the problem and perhaps upgrading your signal chain or learning how to get the best from it will get you there faster than anything I'm about to suggest.
