ahaaaa ! garageband is hardly a substitute dude. . u mmight like it, But I run a professional studio for musicians.
& I can use logic (& ableton) quite alright on a macbook pro 17'' (or any decent mac for that matter)
This post was about the 'price' & refund of a purchase, Not the prospect of what I should or shouldnt use..
I'm not sure my clients would be too happy about hiring a studio with garageband on it...
& also, this post is old as u can see on the date.
But thax 4 ur (cough cough) 'suggestion'...
btw, I do realise this was posted int he wrong forum (clearly) ;-)
