Last week, I learned that the two month old iPhone I purchased was now no longer being made, and there was a huge price drop. That was fine, I bought what I wanted at a price that was fine, and life goes on. Now I find that Logic 7, the reason why I got a Mac in the first place, is being replaced. My outlay for Logic 7 was $1000. If they wanted to drop the price, good for them, it is their choice, and I bought a fantastic program at a price I felt was reasonable. What is killing me is the upgrade. Here are the total outlays a user would have paid to go from 7-8 in different scenarios: Logic Pro to Logic Studio: $1200 ($1000 plus $200) Logic Express to Logic Studio: $600 ($300 plus $300) No Logic to Logic Studio: $500 ($500) I will be paying a 100% price premium over someone updgrading from Logic Express, to get the same end product. Do any other Logic Pro owners find this insane? The upgrade path in the past always charged a premium to upgrade from a more basic version. I got my money's worth out of Logic several times over, but this pricing just seems absurd to me. I will not be upgrading for awhile anyway, and I will probably just buy the full version and kep Logic 7 to have a platform that I know is safe. I guess they win afterall because my paranoia will result in my spending as much as possible.
