I think I'm going to be moving to Logic Express when I get my new Intel mac, because it doesn't seem like there will be a UB of Cubase LE anytime soon (I was going to buy a control surface that came with LE when the UB came out). Has anybody here made this transition? How do the user interfaces compare? I typically work with 10-15 audio tracks and another 4-5 midi tracks, a few effects on the individual audio tracks and a few master effects. Projects range from 30 second theme songs to 3-5 minute songs and 25-30 minute podcasts (recording up to 4 tracks at a time), and I'll most likely be getting a 20" iMac 2.16GHz with 2GB ram, hooked up to my firepod (8 channel firewire with midi inputs). Based on some limited experience with Protools, it seems like multitrack audio apps are fairly similar with only a slight learning curve if you know one of them. I've also done some simple projects in Garageband. Can I expect a similarly small learning curve moving to Logic Express? And a tangential question - what would you recommend as a control surface for Logic Express? I've examined one at the local Apple Store (wish I could remember the name offhand) that is positioned as a Garageband interface but works with Cubase and Logic, but it's the only one they have and I'd hate to choose one simply because it's the only one there.
