I think Soundcloud has been having technical problems. On their site the follow and heart icons have sometimes been broken over the last 7 days. Their recent downgrading of streaming bitrate for mobile listeners is also not a good sign for the technically stability of their platform since it seems like they`re trying to reduce strain and bandwidth on their servers even to extreme measures.

If you mean you`re not seeing bands on atom you once did, I`ve noticed as well (Shadowpainter, 100 Days from Today come to mind). Maybe, like myself and others, they have projects going on, day jobs, girlfriends?, hard to find time for all that stuff.-Trend

Im a long, long time Mac user and have used Logic Pro for years now as well. I wasnt even tempted to make the switch to Logic X as Logic 9 was just so stable and has continued that way for me. As I am (or was) still using Logic Pro 9.1.8 I feel that says it all.
Now it seems Im being forced to make a change and I want to consider all DAW options and not just look at only Apple offerings. At the beginning I had used Pro Tools but I felt that it forced me to be more technical than I wanted and took away from music making.
As I mentioned I just loved the stability of my old program. I mean whos looking for something NOT stable? l,l,l (Oh please sir can I spend hours of extra time dealing with issues other than music?)
So what do Mac users out there think is a good replacement?

We use a 2005 build of Cubase for our main studio computer, and a 1992 version 2.01 on the Atari. Both are excellent and although old they work, so have not needed to upgrade. We keep our main studio computer isolated from the internet so updates don`t bother it. Apple is apparently the way to go, but we use a PC. Next upgrade might be to go Mac. Might be. Long time in the future! That`s the way we roll, not sure if it`s any help or not. Good luck whatever you decide! :)

You don`t have to upgrade to High Sierra. Plan ahead and realize that`s going to be a machine you intentionally leave obsolete.

George RR Martin has one machine running DOS just for the sole purpose of writing Game of Thrones with Word Star.

Good plan! Ease into it.

Supposedly GB tracks are easily imported into Logic (or so I`m told-I`ve never done it myself) so you could keep working there and import to Logic to learn that.

Thanks for the feedback! I hope it will give me more flexibility than GarageBand (which is great!) but it is a pain having to learn a new daw when all you really want to do is make music!

To Skyline Tigers:
It is and has always been a very deep program. Before I would say that I was only using roughly a third of it. Now I might be using a bit less than that as some of the things they changed in the X version are bit different and I just don`t have a handle on some of them yet. I don`t do vocals but I`ve used the "live" record function for guitars and I haven`t found it very difficult to master. Once you get the slice and dice maneuvers down it`s quite good and easy to use. The onboard efx are very useful so you don`t really need to go outside although I`m lucky enough to have and use a number of third party plugins as well.

To CyTreXX:
Thank you for that reply. I had already pulled the trigger and bought, again, Logic for several reasons. Two of the chief reasons were, as you said, I was familiar with it and the price was good (although being forced to make the purchase was not a good thing but it b what it b.) I`ve found that several things they "improved" seem to be change for change sake alone. But as someone else on another site pointed out some of those changes might`ve been made to make other DAW users comfortable with Logic. It seems to moi to be a bit of a rationalization but it could be the truth-maybe!

Imo no need to switch daw`s when you`re used to logic, the latest version has everything you need and it feels already comfortable to you. stable, massive soundlib, samplers, synths etc. I used every daw, never looked back when i made the switch to logic a few years ago. easy updates, good integration with other software (Kontakt, etc). yes i`m a fan :-) just my idea..Happy new year!

I use Reaper for vocals sometimes as I use GarageBand and its a bit limited for vocal effects and eq. Its interesting you are discussing this as I am saving up for Logic Pro X at the moment. Id be interested to hear its flaws!

31 December 2017 11:52
I am happy with Logic Pro X. Some mates of mine rave about Reaper, but at the end of the day you have to make your own choice, Good luck!
