    Which one is better out of the two? I have the option to get Logic Pro 7 Academic for $100 or should I just get Logic Express 8 or save for Logic Studio? I just want to know which is the best to get. Thanks!

    You can get Logic studio at an academic price. There is a limitation though, I forget what it is. Significantly cheaper.

    I think the limitation is that you can't update to the next version of Logic at a discount like you could if you had Logic 7.

    Yeah, I heard about that getting it for $149 on some campuses, but I'm no longer at a university (graduated) and I don't know anyone at places that have it significantly cheaper. I don't mind not being able to upgrade though if I could get my hands on a the student version for $149. If someone could help me out that'd be great too!

    Check out that link. That is where I got my copy. I ordered it and they emailed me asking for my ID. I am not a BU student either. However, my school may have a deal in place with them.

    I know you can contact apple and tell them you are a student. As long as you have an ID that says so, there is no reason for them to believe otherwise.

    i'm pretty sure i just emailed them my ID number and said I went to the school they have a deal with (Berklee College of Music), and they let me go no problem.

    if you do it, i would call them and ask what kind of student IDs they take. make sure they will take student IDs in general.

    seriously, if that doesn't work call/contact sales at apple. they will surely give u a discount as long as you have that ID.

    best of lukc
