I don't recall having seen one. However, here are the two tech sheets.
Firstly, Logic Pro only comes as part of Logic Studio, which includes Mainstage, Soundtrack Pro and the Jam Packs. None of these extras are in Logic Express. From then on, Logic Pro and Logic Express are meant to be identical except LE has:
No Delay Designer
No Space Designer
No vintage instruments
No support for Nodes
No TDM support
As far as I can remember, that's it.
Re: Logic Express 8 and Logic Studio Comparison chart
Logic express also Lacks the Extra Jam packs, Soundtrack pro, Compression, Wave Burner, QMaster, and Quicktime pro, Main Stag, Studio Instruments and Impulse response utility plus the complete manuals for which is a major difference, and well worth buying vs Express. The apple loops In Logic pro would cost you 500.00 in the apple store and they are included. Do the Math.
The Compression you are inquiring about is an app called Compressor which used to be bundled with DVD Pro. This app which is now happily nesting within the Logic Studio app is used to compress your audio files via using different codex from Quicktime. In so doing it makes your audio & Visuals ready for a large selection of pro delivery formats I.e for the web and for DVD etc.
What Apple in its infinite wisdom did with Logic studio, was to look at it current Pro App Audio visual suite, FinalCut Pro, Soundtrack Pro, DVD Pro & Logic and started to stream line them. So everything pertaining to Audio in these other apps was transferred over to the Logic app which makes sense if you look at the bigger picture. This left Final Cut Pro and DvD Pro which have been brought together under the guise of FinalCut Studio here everything is housed pertaining to the Visual side of things.
So what you now have is a greatly slim-lined Pro App product line. The future is to have these as a clear brand which will provide the professional Multimedia business with a one stop solution to their audio visual needs.
Thanks for the response. I really think that Logic Studio is a great bundle, but it's not for me, and I also think alot of other folks would agree. I can now use Express with all kinds of pro gear, get the job done, and take my mix to the mastering studio where I get all my final projects done.
Logic Express 8 and beyond!
