I have a friend who will be replacing a few seniors at his High School job of doing $5 sound recording jobs for students' bands. The school apparently has recording "hardware", but I can't imagine it'd be that good considering they are very low on money after blowing it all on a nice building. The seniors recommended my friend get Logic Studio and that it didn't matter where he got it or if it was downloaded, since he told him I knew a lot about "downloading programs" (I bet you know what I mean ). I thought it was absurd the seniors would recommend a kid get Logic Studio, who wouldn't know how to use it (I don't even think the seniors know how to use it). After-all, don't you need a college degree in audio engineering to fully-understand how it works? I'm trying to get him to just use Garageband and then graduate to Logic Express after a while, but he keeps insisting to get the "best software" because he "heard" it was really good (which I can't argue with, Logic seems to be great software if you have the studio and know what your doing).
