does anyone know if the logic 7 dongle is needed for the logic pro 9 upgrade?
i went from logic pro 7 to logic pro 8 upgrade (which needed the LP7 dongle). now i would like to go from LP8 to LP9 but i am not sure if it's needed.
this doesn't clarify:
"*About the Upgrades
There are two Logic Studio upgrades available: the upgrade from an earlier version of Logic Studio or Logic Pro; and the upgrade from Logic Express. Academic and Not-For-Resale (NFR) versions are not eligible for either upgrade."2.4Ghz Unibody MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.6), 4Gb RAM, 250Gb 7200RPM HD, Motu 828 Mk1, Logic Pro 8
For the installation you have to connect the XSKey to prove that you indeed qualify for the upgrade. After that you no longer need to connect it.
even though i upgraded from LP7 to LP8? so when logic 10 comes out, i still need to hang on to my LP7 dongle?!
i've been using LP8 without the dongle (obviously) but i am referring to INSTALLING the upgrade. the LP7 dongle was REQUIRED to be connected while the LP8 upgrade was being installed.
so what you're telling me is, i still need to have the LP7 dongle connected while installing the upgrade from LP8 to LP9?2.4Ghz Unibody MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.6), 4Gb RAM, 250Gb 7200RPM HD, Motu 828 Mk1, Logic Pro 8
I'm in the same boat. Just plunked down about $300US for the Logic 8 Studio upgrade from Express 8 about a month ago. I had no idea 9 was in the works.

I really thought that we would have seen a new more updated exs24..

Selective Track Import lets you easily transfer setups and track content between projects. Since you can select components on a track-by-track basis, it’s simple to grab the guitar track from a different session or import that perfect drum mix you created for another project.
That sounds like a reasonable idea to me
New features in Logic Pro 9 let you freely edit and move take regions, punch in and out of a take without creating a new take lane, and color code your best takes on the fly.
ntroducing Flex Time.
Flex Time is a collection of tools that allows you to quickly manipulate the timing and tempo of your recording for the tightest performance possible. Use the new Flex Tool to easily move the individual beats on a waveform — forget all that tedious splicing and editing. Flex Time combines beat slicing and elastic audio techniques into a single workflow. And you no longer have to master different techniques to correct drum, vocal, guitar, or any other kind of tracks. Best of all, your edits are always rendered in real time, even when you’re using the highest-quality setting.
Render when you want.
Bounce-in-Place lets you quickly render effects for a single region or an entire track. You might use it when you’re ready to apply a plug-in destructively to an audio file, when you want to bounce an effect before doing more to a track, or when you want to transfer files between applications.
Finally! - That's superb...
woaaaaaaaa - 500 USD - that's a bit heavy...
Ahh, I was wrong it's 199 for the upgrade...

That's a new buyer, remember. Upgrade is $199, which seems, mmmm -- reeeaasonable -- mostly -- assuming it all ticks along nicely. I'm with angelonyc: give it a month or two for early adopters to see if anything explodes or erases all hard drives within a two-mile radius. Once they get to 9.1 or 9.2, I'll probably be ready for it (same point for Snow Leopard).
I do look forward to STP3. Lately I've used STP2 more often than Logic, and it's been feeling sort of like a neglected stepchild. Looks like it's grown up a bit.MacBook Pro 15" 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB, Mac OS X (10.5.6), iMac, iPod shuffle, an iBook G3 gathering dust...
