I heard that there are 2.1 Mil Final Cut Pro users. Does anybody know how many people using Logic Pro?

    Does that mean Pros who use Logic in their work or do you count every Thomas, Richard & Harold who've pirated the software?

     

    I'm sure those two numbers are separated by millennia

    I asked this same question a couple of years ago and all I got were these kinds of responses about pirating.

     

    I'd still be very interested to find out how many licensed copies there are.

    Bob,

     

    I only mentioned the pirating thing because the last "Logic Studio" I recorded in was using a pirated copy, disheartening to say the least. I was sitting in on the mix and the owner offered me a copy.

     

    That was March of this year.

     

    I too would be interested in how many licensed copies there are, not gonna happen from Apple though.

    Interesting that no numbers floating around at least some estimates. How about all these "know it all" analysts. How about ProTools, Digital Performer, Cubase.

    GarageBand would be easier because it comes on all new Macs, but that won' tell how many actually using it. I heard that most of the songwriting in Nashville is done on GarageBand.

     

    I'm just curious, if Apple finds out that there are more iPad GarageBand users than Logic users, maybe they get the wrong ideas followed by devistating decisions for the Logic community.

    Sorry. No knock on you, Pancenter. You're one of the giants of this forum and you've helped me out many times. Thanks always for your input.

    I suppose that's about the top and bottom of it, as far as Apple go, these days - there are a large section of Apple employees engaged in making business decisions like that rather than developing the capabilities of their software for serious users.

     

    I'm still on 8.0.2 and its enough for my G5 but I still manage to do things that I need to, so, if the worst scenario occurs, I'm planning on having the right backups to be always able to restore the way that I do stuff.

    That's a good point. Ultimately it's probably best to stick with the version of Logic that your Mac was made for. Version 9 was not really much of an upgrade until it became 64-bit, otherwise it's exactly like #8.
