I'm trying to figure out what software to buy when I purchase a Macbook. I'm currently using Reason 2.5 on PC but just getting a bit bored with it. I prefer the software with layouts such as Cubase, but I don't want to buy that then have to spend a fortune on VST plugins, which is why I'm thinking of buying Logic. But I keep seeing Live mentioned all the time and I can get hold of a copy half the price of Logic. I make trance sort of music currently but want to expand and add more 'real' intruments into this genre, a bit like how Oakenfold uses guitars etc. What would people recommend? Suppose using both of them could be an option, but what are the advantages of doing this? Cheers.
