    Hi everyone...

    I will be doing some recording and I was wondering which is a better program for editing, engineering, composing, etc...

    I'll be running an M-Audio (most likely Firewire) interface to the iMac. Recording live vocals and guitar and adding synth percussion, strings, bass, etc. I need the synths to sound like real instuments, and will most likely be importing them from a MIDI controller or MIDI output on a keyboard. I really want life-like quality in the percussion, bass and strings, to sound as close as live recorded as possible. I do not want "Fruity Loops" quality beat tracks or loops. Must go with the live guitar and vocal recordings.

    Should I use Logic or ProTools?

    Look forward to your answers... Thanks!

    If youre planning on doing a lot of composing, I would suggest logic (I own both logic studio and protools 7.4) only because logic comes with a lot of great synths and natural instrument sounds, so composing would be a breeze. after that, its preference.

    both of those programs can do what you want them to so it's really a matter of preference. I use logic because I find it more intuitive and mac like. However, pro tools is considered the industry standar. so if you want to make a career out of working in the recording industry, learning pro tools is a must.
