    Hey there

    Im just wanting to know if there is another program for Mac which is similar to logic studio 8 which comes with a free trial. The logic studio 8 is £329 (or there abouts) and I dont want to pay all that money and for it not to be for me, so Im just wanting to know is there a program similar or which does the same thing, were I can get a free trial on it?

    Thanks for any help in advance

    Don't doubt it - Logic 8 is without equal. The sheer amount (and quality) of VI, apple loops and plugins that are included and that you can run at one, alone make it a no brainer - but the new easy to use interface, rock solid stability/reliability and the ridiculously low price make it simply untouchable.

    You've already got the mac - Don't hesitate! - get Apple's best production platform going and you'll be one very happy music producer!

    Bear in mind Logic used to be £550 pre-apple and you could easily spend about £1000 on things like the 'extras' like Impulse response Spaceverb and things like ES2, and all the other synths...Everythings now included for the £329!!

    The fact that it comes on 8 DVD's should be enough to convince you that it's the business!

    The main purpose of garageband is music production. It a very competent app for creating music, and no, you don't need to use loops. Garageband is a full blown mixer with built in effects. Its limited compared to Logic, but in no way does it make it useless or a beginners app. I say play around in GB and you might be surprised how much recording can be done with it alone. I recorded several songs in GB alone.
